And The Winner Is...

Last week we talked all about my guilty pleasure...celebrities and pop culture. And there was even more talk about who should win the coveted title of PEOPLE Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.

This year's winner? Channing Tatum. 

I bought my copy of the magazine at the CVS pharmacy down the street and took a little me time to flip through the pages. And yes, like I said, I bought a Dr. Pepper and king size Reese's to enjoy too. 

While I was a little disappointed that my favorite celebrity hunk, Ryan Gosling, didn't win, I was happy to see that he still graced the pages of the magazine (WITH his dog. so precious). And, a few other of my favorite male celebrites did as well...

It was also really cool seeing a familiar face in PEOPLE Magazine. The story of Lauren Scruggs, a 24 year old writer and model, is told in the article entitled "My New Normal."

Lauren and I attended the same university (Dallas Baptist University) and last year she went through a tremendous ordeal after an accident involving an airplane propeller. Lauren lost part of an arm and part of an eye in this accident, leaving her with a lot of healing and physical therapy to endure after her recovery. The most amazing part of her story is the strong faith she has kept in the Lord, and the light she has been able to be for Him since this accident. I really encourage you guys to do some reading about Lauren, she is awesome. You can read Lauren's fashion blog here, and check out her online magazine here.

Psst -- The winner of the $20 CVS gift card was announced on the Rafflecopter gadget, and emailed by me. Was it you? Click here to see!
