So, I apologize for the absence in blogging (again, I suck).
Between packing, more packing, and then just dealing with the curveballs of life, it has been an intense time since I last posted... On Monday night, the day before we headed back to school, J was in a car accident after he fell asleep behind the wheel driving home from my house. Hellooo, can we say guilt on my part?! He couldn't reach his parents to come get him (the car is totaled) so I went and picked him up/brought him to his house. Let me tell you, scariest experience for me...and here I thought I was always so laid back, so calm... I was shaking like a leaf...like it was absolutely uncontrollable. Anyway, the great news is that while his car is totaled, he is completely and totally fine. He walked out of falling asleep behind the wheel, and hitting a tractor trailer without a single scratch on him. But still, it was really scary and really stressful!
I'm settled in to my new apartment now, so I'm ready to get back in the swing of things - which means getting back to blogging and reading all of your fabulous blogs....and for more hotties of the week!
I doooo listen to your suggestions for them, even when I don't really understand the appeal (which is okay, we all have a type!).
I feel like I'm going to bitchslapped by every female out there for saying this, but I do not find Jake Gyllenhaal attractive. However, I know a lot of you do (including Lindsay over at La Belle Vie who has mentioned her attraction to him a few times =), so here you go! (Just fyi, while I do not find him physically attractive, I find the things I've read about him just fabulous. So who knows, maybe I'll be converted...I am a fan of the dark hair/light eyes!).
Jake Gyllenhaal first entered the Hollywood scene in the movie October Sky, and then went on to star in the cult hit Donnie Darko. And hello, who could forget his amazing performance in Brokeback Mountain!? Just beyond. He received a Best Supporting Actor nod for the Academy Awards for his performance in the movie.
Since you all know, I love hotties who are activists too, I would like to inform you that Gyllenhaal is a supporter of the Rock the Vote movement, as well as a campaigner for environmental issues and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Not only is he an activist, but Gyllenhaal really seems like a really sweet guy, and a fabulous boyfriend to Reese Witherspoon. In every magazine you open up, I feel like you can see a picture of the two of them holding hands walking around, food shopping together dressed super casually, or (I melt) of them with her kids (with ex cheater husband Ryan Phillippe). Gyllenhaal is also the godfather of Matilda Ledger - Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams' adorable daughter. And helllllo, the boy has styleeeee.
Okay, I kind of get it with this picture =)
You know what? I may be getting the appeal ;)
Hope you're all having the best week! I look forward to catching up on everyone's blogs! =) Love ya all, xo.
