Fabulous Photos from the Oscars

Although I was less than impressed by the fashions gracing the red carpet at yesterday’s 84th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, I was overjoyed that Octavia Spencer took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in box office hit, The Help.

Despite, not winning the coveted trophy for Best Actress for the aforementioned movie, Viola Davis still dazzled in emerald green with her uber-fabulous natural ‘do.

Take a look at some of the stunning BGs (and guys) in attendance:

Save Your Best Shots!

Although we live in a digital world, some things should still be tangible – for me photos are high on the list! Among my friends and family, I’m one of the few who get my digital photos printed and actually place them in photo albums. In fact, I have a weakness for purchasing cute photo books and frames. I never let photos accumulate on my digital camera or computer mainly out of fear of losing them.

A few years ago, my computer crashed and I lost over 1000 photos! I have since vowed to always get my photos printed. Plus, it’s so easy to upload them at your local drugstore or even order them online through sites like Snapfish (my site of choice), Shutterfly, etc. Now since the arrival of Ava aka Baby BGG – I’m sure I’ll be snapping even more shots!

Here are a few of my own personal photo albums. I buy most of them from stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Daffy’s because they’re always reasonably priced!

Do you print your digital photos? If so, do you put them in photo albums and frames?
