9. Her kids are freaking adorbs. I love the whole girly little boy son of a celeb thing.
8. She's just a midwestern girl at heart.
7. She has the requisite "I've been in a movie with Bette Midler" notch on her belt. Excuse me. Two movies with Bette Midler.
6. Most. Amazing. Hair. Love a fellow non-straight-hair-gal.
5. She's married to a nice Jewish boy.
4. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
3. Even though she insists she's not Carrie, she looks just as fashion-forward fabulous in every photograph as Carrie undoubtedly would have.
2. Um, she spent every single day with Chris Noth for years on end. And a lot more. Or actually, maybe I hate her for that.
1. She made writing look so fucking cool. Thanks Carrie.
