It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…AWARDS SEASON!

It’s officially AWARDS SEASON in Hollywood!  I am a total pop culture junkie.  I follow anything and everything related to tv, movies, fashion, and celebrity.  Call it superficial.  Call it shallow.  Call it what you will.  But I love it- and I love the Kardashians!

It feels good to get that off my chest.

Luckily, Nico does not find this addiction as annoying during awards season.  Every year we make our pics and watch the big shows with a competitive spirit.
