Just a kiss goodnight.

•May 2, 2011 • Leave a Comment

I am addicted to this new, awesome, Lady Antebellum song. I had to share:

http://www.facebook.com/ladyantebellum?v=app_178091127385

Especially these lyrics:

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight, just a touch of the fire burnin’ so bright.. I don’t want to mess this thing up, I don’t want to push too far.. just a shot in the dark that you just might be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life.. so baby I’m alright with just a kiss goodnight.

It’s lovely. I can definitely relate. I feel this way in most of my relationships.. who doesn’t? You’re afraid to get too close, you pull away. Try to deny your feelings.. it never works out. Sometimes it’s safer not to fall!

I’ve been working many, many more hours lately. I did pick up a Wilton Whoopie Pie bunny pan for 5 dollars the day after Easter. Was proud of that! I have my eye on a Canon SX130 IS Camera, I hope will be useful for Keith Urban concerts.

I saw Fast Five today. It was a definite good movie. I don’t think it was as good as #1 or #4, but I liked it. I was told by various people it was the best of the five, but I don’t think so. I’d rank it solid 3-4. (One being the best, four being second, this being 3 or 4, and #3 being the worst one.) I love Paul Walker but there was a definite lack of shirtlessness! I do think they didn’t need as many shaky camera shots, and some of the car stunts were a little hard to believe, but again, I did like it. I find myself saying time after time they do unreal stunts but oh well! I would give it a B overall. I was happy to see the entire casts together again..

While beautiful and seemingly awesome, Crayola Colored Bubbles stain everything. We now have bright blue stains on our concrete that will not come off.

Something Borrowed

•April 24, 2011 • Leave a Comment

I just finished the books Something Borrowed and Something Blue. I’d give Something Borrowed a complete A+. It was quite a good book! I finished it in a matter of a few days.. Something Blue was okay, I found myself wondering about Rachel and Dex the entire book. I would give it a B-. Something Borrowed is so cute. I love the quote she keeps mentioning throughout the book “I remember that my mother once told me that the opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference.”  and I think it is so very true. I think I like the book because I see Rachel as myself. Someone who always thinks she’s not good enough. Not pretty enough. Good enough to get something, but not the thing I want the most. I like to think like her, I will be happy someday. Not that I’m not. Sometimes I want more. But I’ve learned the grass is not always greener on the other side. And maybe I’m content.

“My wants are simple: a job that I like and a guy whom I love.”  – Emily Griffin, Something Borrowed.

I have been a bit out of it blogging lately! My apologies. I went to see this movie Tornado Alley today. I liked it, but it wasn’t exactly what I expected.. I thought it would be better. I loved all the shots of Tornado – forming storms! I should’ve been a tornado chaser.

I’ve been reading the book Something Borrowed. I finished it today. I can’t wait to see the movie! It’s going to be simply fab! I remind myself alot of Rachel. I am smart, not all that good looking, always doing the “right” thing.

My couponing trip did not go well this week. I used a TON of coupons but spent way more money than I wanted to. Almost $200! Ah!

Will write more soon.
