I Heart Vampires!!!

Who knew?!

I recently read the Twilight Series written by Stephenie Meyer, at the suggesion of some friends, and I am hooked!!!

I cannot even tell you how good these books are, and how much I love them. There are three righ now, Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse, with a fourth coming out in August, and the movie coming out in December.
The author claims to write Science Fiction for those who don't read Science Fiction, and it is so true... I have become a vampire groupie. These books are geared more toward young adults... her first 'adult' book is coming out in May.I'm not sure what I did with my time before I got my hands on these books. I search her website for chapters of new books, movie trailers, etc.
Seriously, if you haven't gotten your hands on them yet, do it soon... the more people I can talk to about them, the better!
Happy reading!!!

This is a split-screen... on the left, just underneath the word "girl" there is a horizontal, straight white line, the line is where the penis would be if it was a boy.

On the right, the arrow is pointing to three little lines... thats her girl parts.

Rain, Rain, go away!!!

Question: What happens when every day, all week has beautiful and sunny with temperatures in the seventies, you've put a (non-refundable) deposit on a shelter by a lake, with playground and all for your soon-to-be two year old's birthday party?

Answer: When Saturday comes, it will pour down rain, and be twenty degrees cooler than it has been all week, forcing the birthday party inside... all 30 people (if you've never seen my house, it is NOT a 30-person house)

Despite that small set-back, we had a really great time with all of our family, and a few good friends. We ordered pizza and ate cake, and had fun.
Once again, my beautiful cake!
