Sunday and Oscar Predictions

Let me start off saying that I am not an award show follower. I have only seen a couple of these movies but since I am attending an Oscar party tonight, my friend Jennifer told me that I have to make my Oscar Predictions. Here are the nominees that I guessed would win. To be honest, I have am more entertained by the Red Carpet fashion show. It is always fun to judge. 
  • Best Picture - The King's Speech
  • Actor in a Leading Role - Colin Firth
  • Actor in a Supporting Role - Geoffrey Rush
  • Actress in a Leading Role - Natalie Portman
  • Actress in a Supporting Role - Hailee Steinfeld
  • Animated Feature Film - Toy Story 3
  • Art Direction - Alice in Wonderland
  • Cinematography - Black Swan
  • Costume Design - Alice In Wonderland
 I mean, honestly, the chances of me even staying awake 
to see the main nominations are unlikely anyways. 
Happy Sunday.

An introduction to my little charmed life.

This is me....and my husband, Max....and my faithful dog, Hachiko.
Welcome to my little charmed life.

Let's start with an introduction. My name is Tara Ellerbe, born on July 24, 1987. I grew up in a little neighborhood called Pleasant Run Farms. My husbands name is Max. He grew up in the same little neighborhood. In fact, one street down from mine. When I was a kindergartner at Welch Elementary, Max was a third grader in the same building. In my fourth grade year, I switched to private school.
Fast forward to 2000. My brother, Aaron, was in a band at Northwest High School called Speed for Valerie. Max just happened to be the drummer of that band, which happened to practice at my house. So this was the first of a long series on coinciding events that led me to meet my future husband.

We married on December 16, 2006. 

One year later....

We purchased an Akita puppy that we named Hachiko.

And this is our little home.

My life is full in all of the best ways. I created this blog to share the little
 details of my life, but mostly my best attempt to awaken my creativity 
that I feel has been laying dormant for far too long. I don't know which 
direction this will go, but I'm sure it will be fun.
