I Finally Finished!

I've referenced the Twilight saga in several posts now, and I finally finished the fourth book this weekend. Seems like a lot of people I've talked to my age and of the "girly" persuasion look at me funny when I say I'm reading these books, but I'm telling you, I really enjoyed them and could not put them down.

I am totally not someone that is into vampires and science fiction and all that and that's what I think people think when they hear what these books are about. That's what I first thought when I heard about them, but I'm a sucker for pop culture, so thought I'd pick up a copy to see what all the fuss was about - and I got sucked in too.

Contrary to what people think, these books are not gross or bloody. The first book, Twilight, is a story about the most wonderful, amazing, all-encompassing kind of love that exists and how two people from very different backgrounds and DNA, for that matter, are attracted to each other. If you've ever been dumped, the second book is going to really hit home. The books build on their love and relationship and they are just easy-to-ready stories about life and love (with a little twist).

There has been some backlash on the books because the female heroine is always in distress and is rescued by her man, but come on, I'd love for Edward Cullen (you have to read the book to truly understand how perfect this vampire is) to save me any time.

The first book has been made into a movie and is being released November 21. You can see a trailer here. I'll leave it to you to make your final judgement, but sometimes it's hard to find a good book. In this case, I found 4. You'll either love them or hate them, but if you're up for something new, give it a whirl. You just might like it.

  1. But didn't you think that Bella got really annoying at times with the whole, "if you ever leave me i'll just die" speech that she agve every 2 minutes (especially in New Moon). Overall I have liked books 1 and 2 (that is all I have read so far) but Bella still annoys me. I guess it also concerns me that these books are for young adults and I thought that Bella being so dependent on Edward isn't exactly the message I would want my teenage daughter to get...anyway, I digress

    Glad you liked the series...I still have 2 more to go.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!


Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
