Food for Thought Friday

Breakfast
What do you usually eat for breakfast and what time do you usually eat it?

Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for~
  • a safe trip to and from Panguitch (thank you Mother Nature for not snowing while I was driving!)
  • A three day weekend
  • Pride and Prejudice marathons with my Mom
  • Easter candy already being out on the shelves~ Cadbury mini-eggs.....mmmmmmm......
  • Decongestants
  • The fact that it's getting lighter earlier and staying light longer- no more going to class and leaving work in the dark- YAY!!!
  • Snow that cleared away the inversion. (I HATE inversions!!!)

We really can just forget the rest of the season- give the boy the contract already and get him in a recording studio.

25 bits of randomness

My 25 things that I posted on Facebook~
1. My dream car is a red convertible mini-cooper.
2. I failed my driver's test the first time I took it because I hit another car.
3. I have lived in Missouri, Texas (San Antonio X2 and El Paso), Colorado (Colorado Springs and Denver), Virginia (DC area), Hawaii, Utah and Germany all courtesy of the US Army.
4. I'm very glad I am an Army brat. At the time I hated moving so much but looking back on it I can see that it has shaped me into the person I am today.
5. I love to read. I would rather read than do just about anything.
6. I have many literary boyfriends- Gilbert Blythe was my first. He was joined by Teddy Kent, Mr. Darcy, Edward Cullen, Joshua Steed, Ron Weasley (stop laughing!), Ian O'Shea and most recently Po.
7. I tend to be a cynical person but I think that I must secretly be a romantic because I love chick-flicks and romance novels.
8. I have no problem going to the movies by myself.
9. I've lived in Utah for 10 years and I still don't feel like it's home. I would move in an instant if the right opportunity presented itself.
10. Heidelberg, Germany is my favorite city on earth.
11. I love men that can sing. The majority of my music collection is men.
12. My favorite colors are purple and green. I do not like pink.
13. I love all things Twilight. (shocking isn't it?!?!)
14. I'm very thankful for my Twilight obsession because it's led me to some of the best friends a girl could ever have.
15. I love cats. I do not love decorations or clothes with cats on them.
16. I was once stalked by a killer cow. If you don't believe me I can produce two very reliable witnesses.
17. I hate motorcycles. You couldn't pay me enough to get on one.
18. I have been cliff diving once and it was amazing! I would love to go again.
19. I want to live by the ocean.
20. I would love to be a professional photographer. My dream job would be with National Geographic.
21. I'm a slob. It didn't used to be so bad but now that I don't have roommates and no one comes to my house it's bad. It's always a good thing when my Mom is coming to visit because it inspires me to clean.
22. I'm addicted to the internet. The thought of being disconnected scares me, I can't help it- my friends live in my computer!
23. I loathe ironing.
24. I've been in love once in my life. He didn't want me.... his loss!!!!
25. I used to be freaked out about the idea of being single but now I really enjoy it. If Mr.Wonderful happens to show up in his silver Volvo and wants to drive off into the sunset with me that will be great.... if not I'll drive myself!

Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for~
  • Bonus points on my accounting test that bumped my grade up to an A!!
  • Dinner at Maddox with fabulous friends
  • Snow (it's so pretty!)
  • My i-pod
  • Diet Coke
  • Socks (not the ones on my feet- my cat)

I'm late, I'm late... for a very important date!


I have become the late person. You know that person that's really annoying because they don't ever get anywhere on time? Yep, that's me these days. I have no clue how it happened but I do know I hate it. I must change my evil ways.

Graceling

I loved, loved, loved this book! It has become one of my top ten favorites. The main character, Katsa, starts out sad, bitter and abused and we get to see her find out who she really is and become the heroine. The hero, Po, is fabulous!!! He ranks up there with Gilbert Blythe, Mr. Darcy and Edward Cullen *sigh*

Visiting Teaching Twilight Style

Maybe I would actually get my visiting teaching done if it happened like this-




(I know, I know... it's blasphemy but it's really funny! And you all know I'm a heathen anyway)

The fangirl returns


I have a serious problem... I just can't contain this fangirl inside of me. I want to act like an adult but when I find pictures like these I just can't supress her.
These just made my day! (click on the middle one to see all the details- I love the reflection and the tagline.)


Lots and lots of Half-Blood Prince goodness here.

Overly enthusiastic public displays of affection.
