Day 142- Betty White

At 88 1/2 years young, Betty White made both of our dreams come true by hosting Saturday Night Live.  She was joined by many of my other favorite women from the show-- Molly Shannon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer, Rachel Dratch... pretty awesome.

I have loved Betty White since Manda and I used to obsessively watch Golden Girls.  Even though we took a quiz, and I was Sophia and Manda was Dorothy (sorry, Sister), I always loved Rose the best.  She was just so cute and kooky.

I stayed up way later than I should have to watch Betty tonight, and I had super high expectations for the show.  It was fabulous.  I'm not even mad.  Betty White proved once again in a number of ways why she is an icon, a legend, and a national treasure.  She joked about her muffin on "Delicious Dish," poked fun at Facebook and herself in a hilarious monologue, and played the silly lady we've all come to know and love.  Oh, Betty.

And, of course, Jay Z added an extra little cherry on top.

Thank you, Betty White (and all those other ladies too), you made my day.
