Show & Tell Tuesday




What? Me? The Post Grad posting on a Tuesday? It can't be! At the beginning of my blogging life I decided to only post Monday, Wednesday, Friday and keep it consistent. I didn't want to lose readers just because I couldn't keep a schedule nor did I want to bore them with poor content by overextending myself. But today's Show & Tell Tuesday is an exception. I thought this would be a fun link-up opportunity about a topic that would be fun to explore!

I've never really thought about who I would want to invite to dinner if I was given the opportunity. There are way too many people I would want to meet or have the chance to see again but for this post these people will be celebrities that are still alive. Helps narrow it down a bit! Oh yeah, and being the feminist I am I decided to at my dinner party it would be a party to celebrate strong women. 

ONE


When I think Chrissy Teigen I think hilarious. Don't get me wrong she's absolutely stunning...


...and has an awesome husband...


but she's just plain funny. Her Instagram always has be cracking up. And as an added bonus she's a huge foodie, which is one of my love languages. I love to see all her cooking and food pictures for her upcoming cookbook. When she came to dinner at my house, I would really have to up my ante to compete with her cooking skills. I know she would crack jokes and keep the conversation flowing. 

TWO


Giuliana Rancic is one of my role models. She has great morals that are rooted in her faith and her family. I'm all about women striking the work/life balance and I think she's perfected it. She has an adorable family...


...and a great career.


She has faced so many tribulations (think, fertility, miscarriage, cancer) but has handled herself with such grace. I would love to pick her brains about how to achieve the same success she has. Also, on a slightly less serious note...I would love to talk celebrity gossip with her! 

THREE



I mean, my next guest speaks for herself. The flawless, graceful, regal, Kate Middleton. I never was crazy into the royal family like other people until high school when Kate and William got engaged. They really shook up the stereotypes of a royal couple. They live a completely extraordinary life but yet still maintain a level of normalcy. I think what really struck a chord for me is that they met at school. Just like other "normal" couples.

Her family is SO adorable.


Her classic fashion sense is beautiful.


I would want to talk to her about what it's really like to live their lifestyle. I imagine she would add a sense of class and sophistication to my dinner! Also, wouldn't it be funny to see her interact with Chrissy or Bethenny?

FOUR


Bethenny Frankel is an absolute crazy person and I LOVE IT! She's hilarious, quirky, loud, and successful. I am so inspired by her healthy eating and working out too. She is in amazing shape. She has amassed an enormous empire and is an incredible business woman.


I love that she's back on Real Housewives. Her commentary makes the entire show. She would crack up everyone at dinner and keep the mood light. But she could also share some of her business tips with us. Maybe she can bring the drinks???

FIVE


My last guest would be my absolute girl crush...the beautiful Blake Lively. Everyone has a girl crush. If you say you don't, you're lying. I think Blake Lively is so naturally pretty. She's not overdone. Her sense of style is phenomenal.


As my guest, I would make her bring all of her clothes she doesn't want..:) Also, I would talk to her about James and her hubby, Ryan. Honestly, I just want to meet her. Who knows where the conversation would go?

So there are my dinner guests. It would be a crazy, lively, and BEAUTIFUL bunch of women. This quote really resonated with me because it's what I want from my dinner party...


...strong women supporting each other. That's what I want for my dinner party. Have a great day, everyone! See you back here tomorrow!
