What’s happening???

Hi! So, what’s been going on you may be wondering, well, here’s an update:

  • Besides a few odds and ends, I’M DONE WITH MY HOLIDAY SHOPPING! I’m so excited about this and I’ve even mailed out everything I need to mail. It’s pretty awesome to get it all done and out of the way because now I can enjoy the holiday season. 🙂
  • After a few conversations with Dave, we decided to go light on gifts this year and it was a theme I carried on to the rest of my gift receiving peeps. I’m very thankful for all the cool people I have in my life and I tried to send small ‘thinking of you’ gifts’. With everything that is going on in the world, the amount of money I spend on gifts is not related to how much I love my peeps, the season is really about love, joy, and peace.
  • I’m diggin’ the new Britney Spears album. Some songs are ok, but some are awesome, they really make you want to dance. Some songs are so good that I wish I was at a hot new club, all dolled up, and breakin’ it down on the dance floor…not a likely scenario, so I’ll settle for dancing in my room in my pjs.
  • I’m heading back to Las Vegas, NM for Xmas in less than two weeks. I’ll be there for 5 days, should be a nice relaxing break from work. I’m looking forward to seeing my family and DAISY!
  • Saw Twilight. It was enjoyable, but of course, the book was better. The movie Edward was way better than the book Edward I imagined. Oh Edward!
  • My company’s holiday party isn’t until the 20th, way too late in the year, but luckily Dave’s is this weekend, should be fun!
  • I love the Gilmore Girls! The writing on this show is so cool and unique. I only caught the show a few times when it was on the air, I was in college for the first part of it, then there was no use in watching weekly because I wanted to catch up on what I missed, which is where I am today. I’m using netflix to catch up, it’s awesome. I feel like its a smart financial decision too, because I’m not wasting money buying the series DVD’s which I will likely only watch once and will collect dust on my bookshelf, instead I’m just paying a monthly fee to watch a season.

That’s all for now, peace out!

Twilight

So I must admit that I have spent a good part of my time recently absorbed in the Twilight saga. The Twilight series consists of 4 books marketed to the young adult audience, but still fun to enjoy for those (like me) that are young at heart. Someone had recommended these books to me, but I hadn’t really been too excited to begin reading them. I signed up for the waiting list at the library and after a few weeks got an email that ‘Twilight’ was available. I was in the middle of another book, but decided to check out the first chapter of the book, after allI, I only had a few weeks to read the book before it was due. So it must have been after the first few chapters that I decided the heck with my other book, this one was getting good, I had to keep reading. I finished in a couple days, was signed up on the waiting list at the library for the next book, ‘New Moon’, and decided that I couldn’t wait (good thing I didn’t, I’m still waiting for a copy to become available) and went to buy the second book at the store. It was just as good as the first, actually the second book is my favorite, so again, being impatient, I went back to the store to just get the whole set so I could finish the series without stopping. The author created a magical world of high school, romance and vampires, I was hooked. ‘Eclipse’ and ‘Breaking Dawn’ (3rd and 4th books) weren’t as magical as the first two books for me, I really didn’t enjoy how the whole story ended, but like all good series, it had to end. I won’t provide much detail on the books, as there are many fan sites dedicated to them worthy of checking out, but if you are feeling a little cheesy and want to feel 16 again, check out these books, they are great! The movie is coming out in November and yes, I’m totally excited to check it out. Edward is so dreamy!
