So I may have watched this movie twice now, and I kind of sort of downloaded the soundtrack, which I am listening to a little bit and ummm...I'm like 15 years old. Hey, at least I don't have the pink streak in my hair anymore-that would drop me to 13. I did like the movie. I had to see it a second time to decide. I think my favorite is still the baseball scene-just because it is EXACTLY how I played it out in my mind while reading the book. Critique? Well, I was a little disappointed in some of the dialogue-I really feel like some of the stuff straight from the book was less cheesy than what they ended up saying. I was a bit bugged that they added scenes not in the book and left some important scenes out that I think should have been there. I can understand if they have to cut scenes due to time-but if they are filling in with other stuff that wasn't in the book-that bugs. Overall casting was SO much better than I originally thought it was going to be. Just looking at stills of the actors that they cast pre-movie I was very worried. I really like how they all turned out. Edward and Bella-perfect. I didn't think I was going to like Jasper and I think he worked great. They really needed to tone down Carlisle's makeup-I think he would have been so much better toned down a bit. OH! The Edward in the sun thing-ug. ew. sad. Oh well. I can't think of how they could have done it better, but it was WAAAY too cheesy. Considering the small budget and inexperience of the production crew, I think it went better than I thought. Overall, I liked the movie, and if you want to go again...I'm game.

So this was me as a baby. I threw a Baby Shower last night and we had everyone bring baby pictures. This is me. I was surprised that a lot of people seemed surprised it was me. It was a fun shower-Congratulations to Rachel, she totally cleaned up gift-wise. So awesome. And I think it was a lot of fun. I'm just glad it all came together in the end...

I'm in a bit of a weird funk today. I renewed my love affair with The Get-up Kids and it has taken me to a different place in my life. A place of sadness, lots and lots of running, countryside, and the comforting smell of chlorine and trees. It's just weird how when you give all the CD's back at the end of a relationship and then go without hearing songs you listened to everyday for a couple years-the things that spring back to life are crazy when you hear all of them again. If you get the chance, go listen to the entire "Something to write home about" album from The Get-up Kids. You'll thank me later.

Well, I am making the transition from Halloween stuff to Christmas. I already miss the Halloween store-it was so weird to pack it all up and be done already. It doesn't seem like November! For the time being, you will be able to now find me at Bath & Body Works. This is my 4th time working for The Limited Brand Co. and I've loved it every time.
