Before, beautiful but not really our style
After.......I hope Grandma P likes what I did to it!
Here is the reason why I haven't blogged, cleaned, been eating (lost 4 lbs this week), paying attention to my wonderful husband, and staying up way to late. Alright, so I am a year late in joining this bandwagon. But when a close friend practically begged me to start reading this series I decided, "What the hell". Everyone else in the world has, I'll give it a chance.
Hello, my name is Melissa Farley and I am addicted to the Twilight series like a heroin addict is addicted to heroin. I literally can't hold a conversation with my husband or close friends without pleading with them to read it. I am on book 3 of 4. I've watched both the movies this week, which are FANTASTIC by the way, and now I have started the countdown until June 30th when the 3rd movie is released. I even bought the soundtrack and I listen to it while in the car, in the office, at home, and now with the downloaded ring tone, on my phone!! Me and my "close friend", ( I won't reveal her identity) are coming to grips that very soon we will be in mourning when we finish book 4. Has anyone been through this crazy addiction? Let me tell you, I was a HUGE skeptic. I said, "what is the freaking fuss all about with these damn books". We'll read a couple of pages and you will be HOOKED!! Please stick with me while I read book 3 and 4. After that, I will proceed in the blogging world.
I hope you all are staying warm and are finding extra warm fuzzies during this Holiday Season.
My Aunt Barb is the best at sending the most AMAZING videos. This is a MUST WATCH!! See what St. Vincent's hospital in Portland is doing to show their support for the cure for cancer. Simply heartwarming and a good laugh all in one. The older gentleman who is the custodian is the best, make sure to watch for him! Thanks Aunt Barb!!
Do you want to be humbled? Watch the trailer for this new movie "Precious", which is coming out November 6th. It was a big winner this year at the Sundance Film Festival. It's based on the book "Push" and has some major names including Mariah Carey cast in the film. This movie is a painful reminder of what everyday life is like for some and forces us to step outside of our cookie cutter lives for 2 1/2 hours......... Watching this made me hurt.
