I ♥ Blue October!!!!!

Last night's Blue October concert was A-MAZING!!!! I was blown away by them! I got some killer pictures from my spot in the front row!! I'm in Dallas for TwiCon so I don't have time to get them all up on my blog yet. I'll post them when I get home. Until then here's their video for Should Be Loved.

My Imaginary Friends

I've never met the large majority of my Twilight friends because the members of our forums live all over the world. I have a tendency to sometimes refer to my unmet friends as my imaginary friends. Today I was able to change one of my imaginary friends to a real life friend. Tiffany was in town visiting family and a group of us got together for lunch. It was so great to finally meet her!!! Of course we've spent so much time chatting on-line that it felt as if we've known each other forever.

Lisa, me, Mary Ann, Meg, Tiffany and Jenn

I ♥ my Twilight friends!!!!

Before Captain Jack there was a pirate named Roux...

There's a possibility that this is my favorite Johnny Depp role ever. (although JM Barrie in Finding Neverland is a close second)

Food for Thought Friday

What is looming on your to do list right now?
Clean my apartment, laundry, ironing, prepare my lesson for Sunday, figure out packing list for Dallas, shop for a couple of new shirts for Dallas, and blog my pictures from Durango trip. That’s just the beginning of the list. Dang! I need to get busy.

What was your life like this week?
Work, sleep and read- that about sums up my week. That’s probably why my to-do list is so overwhelming.

What is a fear you currently have?
Letting people down.

Midnight Snack
When is the last time you took time for yourself?
I take time for myself all the time. It’s one of the perks of being single.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince!!!

I feel like I've been waiting for this movie to come out forever. It was a sad, sad day when the release got bumped from last November to this July. I didn't think I would survive the wait. Somehow I managed to make it through until last night's showing. And let me tell you- it was worth the wait!!! I LOVED this movie!!!!

I learned a long time ago to not to expect a movie version of my beloved book but to expect a movie loosely based on the book. I'm a lot less disappointed when I go into movies with that attitude. Yes, there were things that I would change but overall I was very, very impressed. I loved the acting, the cinematography, the writing and the score. Heck, I even liked Michael Gambon as Dumbledore, which is saying a lot.

I could go on and on about my favorite parts and how impressed I was with the casting and the acting (Those kids get better and better with each movie!) but that would be boring for everyone except me so I'll stop now.

I'll just sum it up with this-

I laughed, I cheered, I gasped, I sat on the edge of my seat, and I cried (ok, maybe bawled is a better word) ... it was wonderful!!! I can't wait to go again!

Curl up with a good book

Now I can be happy!!!

Utah finally has a Popeye's Chicken!!!!

It's on Hill AFB so I'll only be able to go there when Mom's in town but at least I'll be able to get my red beans and rice fix occasionally.
I may not have to move out of Utah now.

The Cake
