I promised to post some pictures of First Lady Michelle Obama taken at the 2012 White House Correspondent's Association Dinner held at the Washington Hilton Hotel over the weekend. I found these on They didn't have a full length shot of her but did supply a picture of what the strapless paisley organza Naemm Khan gown looked like on the runway.

I just had to steal this picture of actress Rosario Dawson from OMG! from Yahoo! I think the boobs took center stage over the emerald green dress! She wore this to the 2012 White House Correspondent's Association Dinner held at the Washington Hilton Hotel in Washington DC. By the way the President and Mrs. Obama were in attendance! More later if I find a picture of Mrs. Obama's dress.

The folks at OMG! from Yahoo! asked this question "Did Emily Blunt look matronly or magnificent in this Jason Wu dress and Alice + Olivia pumps at the New York premiere of her new rom-com, "The Five Year Engagement"? I'm on the fence and need your help. (4/18/2012)" Well I'm not on the fence. You know my answer is absolutely NOT! I love this ensemble especially the shoes! Tell me what you think

It's green week. What are you doing to help save our planet? Me, I've started turning off the water when I brush my teeth. I'm also using my "real" dishes more than paper plates (oh, how I miss the convenience, but what the hey...I've gotta wash the dishes anyway!) My sister-in-law has taken to washing her dishes by hand....I haven't gotten to that point yet but I'm working toward it.

For my body, I'm eating a lot more healthy... who knew how much I loved green peppers and onions? How quick it is to fix a meal with sauteed peppers and onions added to chicken I cook on top of the stove and black beans. I've even started eating the vegetables and beans without the chicken. I'm drinking so much more water. I've seen too many people pass away too soon to not be concerned about changing my bad habits.

What are you going to do to save Mother Earth? Have a great green week!

All of us remember the iconic scene of Marilyn Monroe and the "dress" in the 1955 classic The Seven Year Itch. If you don't actually remember the movie surely you have seen the pictures. If not, let me refresh your memories.

Now don't get me wrong, I loved the dress and the movie. I even thought it was quite poetic to have the platinum haired beauty wearing the white dress and shoes. It made an unforgettable statement. But (and you had to know a "but" was coming) what if the stylist had dressed Marilyn in a different color. Perhaps green! Now you can be an icon. You can get your own dress and make whatever statement you'd like. has the University of Marilyn dress for $169.99. A small price to pay to become your own version of Marilyn Monroe!
