I really like Blake Lively, you guys. It’s not that I didn’t like her before, but I think her unattainable hair, impeccable style, lifestyle website and penchant for humblebrags had me worried she was turning into Paltrow 2.0. But as it turns out, she’s kind of a goofball. Very un-Gwyneth, if you ask me. She’s still pretty much Pinterest personified, but I’m certain her diet consists of more than just kale, so that’s good.
If you need proof of this, just take one look at her Instagram account. It’s full of funny captions, cute Ryan Reynolds references, silly faces, kind messages for her fans, and just general adorableness. I rounded up some of the best examples for your perusal. By the time you reach the end of this post, you’ll want to be her best friend. She’s fun and she has all the cool fashion hook-ups. What more could you want? This doesn’t mean I won’t still giggle over those fake baby names, though. That baby should have been named Endive and we all know it!
Let’s start with her most recent post, featuring a funny meme and a picture of her husband shirtless. Who could complain?
Did someone ask for a goofy onset photo from The Age of Adaline? Caption: Spoiler alert: Jack Dies. …different movie. Sorry. I get confused with all this “never let go”, “let go” business!!!
Just having fun with vegetables, featuring a cameo from Teen Witch.
She worships Helen Mirren like we all do.
Battle of the Reynolds.
Seriously, though, how can you not love her?
She’s not like a regular mom, she’s a cool mom.
She has an appreciation for Photoshop.
And she’ll #neverforget Chair.
She’s also charitable. Caption: The amazing Katy. She is waiting on a set of lungs. Share her story. Donate life #oomphforkaty #donatelife So grateful to know her. Not much later, Blake shared the news that Katy received a set of lungs.
And she eats Kraft mac & cheese.
Make me a Halloween costume, Blake!
LOOK AT THE PUPPY! (And the dog’s cute too.)
You didn’t think I’d go the whole post without making the requisite “Blake Lively is a golden retriever” joke, did you? You obviously don’t know me very well.
