{B} cullen
dont judge me :) I am making my angry vampire face
I think being a vamp would rock, who needs a soul if you live forever

here we 3:30 am OUTSIDE in line for new moon. I have a talent for not sleeping but it doesnt mean I dont crash sometimes.

we stayed warm via body heat

amanda me and jess
48 hours without sleep ...I can handle it

the review?? I loved it of course but I am a loyal gal. I will say the second kissing scene is a bit over the top ....I swear on my life they got a "happy ending" if you know what I mean. I started laughing when that "kiss" was done and I started the whole theater giggling. oops
Next to us we had two girls ...maybe 20 years old that every time jacob came on the screen (shirtless ..not that I was complaining) would moan and have this longing ache in their voices. it got a little annoying......I mean yes he has a killer body but still, save your moans for when you are alone.
The filming was wonderful and like I said before the soundtracks solid. Go see it and enjoy all the eye candy. My favorite songs from the soundtrack are

I already blogged this one but I love it

I adore this simple but I love it


its not madness....its called being loyal....

Dear edward
I love you
we belong together
Love me...please
you can Bite me..ya know if you want to..
I like the way you sparkle
I wont be so accident prone
Im not a bleeding heart like bella
xoxo B

Today is a day that with each passing hour I feel a rush of excitement through my body.....

Last year my sister kristy and I waited for 4 hours to see the midnight showing of twilight. I dont call myself crazy, I call myself loyal. Sadly this year my tickets are at 3:30 am and I have to go without her since she moved to cali.(I have good company though)

(last years photo)

Edward and I have something special.... I always have his back in a debate about team jacob v.s team edward. I mean the dog is her "sunshine" blah blah blah . I have a lot of best friends who are my sunshine, but they are JUST FRIENDS. Anyways Im tickled to see my favorite book outta the 4 come to life. The soundtracks solid and the previews look amazing.... diet coke and dots are tasty so............ WE ARE GOLDEN.

Now for your reading pleasure I stole this email from my friend jonis blog. I about died laughing

By Eric D. Snider

Scene 1

BELLA: I'm sad to leave the hellish, uninhabitable wasteland of Phoenix to live in a rain-soaked town full of rubes. I wish everything about my comfortable and privileged life were completely different!
DAD: Hi, Bella! Welcome to Forks, Washington. I'm glad you've stopped playing mother to your own flighty, irresponsible mom and come here to be my mother instead.
BELLA: It will be my pleasure to cook and clean for you.
DAD: I bought you an old truck from an Indian in a wheelchair!
BELLA: I ... have no response for that.

* * * * *

Scene 2

BELLA: It's tough being the new kid in school! Especially when everyone is so friendly and helpful and interested in me. Why can't they just leave me alone so I can sit in the corner and cut myself?
CLASSMATE: You're awesome, Bella!
BELLA: See what I have to put up with? Hey -- who are those hot people over there?
CLASSMATE: Those are the Cullens. They avoid direct sunlight, they don't eat food, they sleep in coffins in a graveyard, and holy water burns them. I think they're Canadians.
BELLA: They sure are spectacularly gorgeous.
CLASSMATE: Yes, they are.
BELLA: I mean seriously, those people are BEAUTIFUL. Especially the one who keeps looking at me. Man alive, that guy is stunning. I mean, wow. He is hot buttered seduction on a stick. I'm not interested in him sexually, of course, because sex is dirty, but wow -- LOOK AT HIM! Yee-ikes! Hubba hubba! If you don't mind, I'd like to spend the next 75 pages talking exclusively about how attractive he is, and then bring it up again every paragraph or so for the remaining 400 pages.
CLASSMATE: Knock yourself out.

* * * * *

Scene 3

EDWARD: Hi, I'm Edward. I'm every girl's fantasy boyfriend: moody, humorless, violent, capable of snapping your spine with my bare hands, liable to do creepy things like watch you while you're sleeping, but also really cute.
BELLA: There is something strange about you.
EDWARD: (recoils at her garlic breath) I don't know what you mean.
BELLA: I just can't put my finger on what it is.
EDWARD: (lifts automobile with one hand) You're imagining things.
BELLA: I feel like you're hiding something from me.
EDWARD: (grabs passing rabbit with lightning speed; drinks rabbit's blood) Don't be silly!
BELLA: It's like you're different somehow.
EDWARD: (turns into bat; flies away)
BELLA: Hmm. I bet he's gay.

* * * * *

Scene 4

JACOB: You should be careful with those Cullens. Many moons ago, our tribe's elders, who were werewolves, made a pact with the Cullens, who were vampires. They're not allowed on our land, not even at our casinos.
BELLA: What, still? Even after all this time has passed?
JACOB: Nope.
BELLA: Since when do white people honor treaties with Indians?
JACOB: I know, right?
BELLA: Let me guess -- you're a character whose only job is to provide exposition, and you won't be useful until the next book.
JACOB: Yes. At the earliest.

* * * * *

Scene 5

BELLA: Thanks for saving me from that mob of guys who attacked me in the street! It's a good thing you obsessively stalk me while simultaneously insisting you want nothing to do with me.
EDWARD: No problem. If anyone's going to tear you limb from limb and gorge themselves on your sweet, delicious, life-giving blood, it's going to be me.
BELLA: Aw, you say the nicest things! I'm pretty sure you're a vampire, that I'm in love with you, and that part of you wants to kill me.
EDWARD: Don't be silly. It's not just part of me.

* * * * *

Scene 6

EDWARD: You know what vampires love? Baseball!
BELLA: Really?
EDWARD: Sure! Haven't you ever heard of vampire bats?


EDWARD: Anyhoo, these are the vampire friends I live with, the Cullens. They've been very eager to eat you.
BELLA: You mean meet me?
EDWARD: Meet you. What did I say?
ALICE: I'm Alice! I can see the future, but only when it's useful to the plot. For example, right now: Look out for those mean vampires barging in from the forest!
MEAN VAMPIRE JAMES: Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum! I smell the blood of a human!
EDWARD: Stay away from her! Bella, you'd better go. I don't want you to have to see me fight this guy for your honor, our muscles straining as we grapple, the air thick with testosterone and the sounds of our throaty snarling.
BELLA: Right! I wouldn't want to see that! Especially not if your shirts got torn off!

* * * * *

Scene 7

MEAN VAMPIRE JAMES: You puny humans are so predictable and weak. Now I've got you alone, free to toy with you and torture you and deliver lengthy explanatory monologues to you! I just hope I don't waste so much time fartin' around that when I finally do decide to kill you it's too late because Edward and the Cullens have arrived to save you!
BELLA: That would certainly be an unusual twist!
MEAN VAMPIRE JAMES: I must say, I can see why Edward likes you. Your smell is overpowering!
BELLA: Oh, you can smell that? Sorry, I thought I could sneak one out....
MEAN VAMPIRE JAMES: Never mind! At last it is time for me to--
EDWARD: Not so fast, Count Jerkula!
MEAN VAMPIRE JAMES: Edward! And the Cullens! Who could have foreseen your perfectly timed arrival?!
ALICE: I could have! Didn't, but could have!

(Fighting ensues. MEAN VAMPIRE JAMES is vanquished.)

EDWARD: Bella! Are you OK? He bit you! I've got to suck out the vampire poison!
BELLA: Edward, you don't have to make up excuses to put your mouth on me. I mean honestly, who ever heard of "vampire poison"?
EDWARD: I'm serious! It's coursing through your veins as we speak!
BELLA: Uh-huh. Whatever you say, Powder.

* * * * *

Scene 8

BELLA: Why did you bring me to the prom, Edward? You know I can't dance, and that I hate it when people tell me I'm beautiful, which happens all the time.
EDWARD: I don't want your dangerous psychological infatuation with a vampire to interfere with your regular life.
BELLA: But I want to BE a vampire! I want you to do it to me. It will strengthen our love for each other. I want to become one with you. And what better night than prom night? We can do it in the back of the limo.
EDWARD: Wait, what are we talking about?
BELLA: I don't know. All the metaphors have started to run together.
EDWARD: You're sure you want to be a vampire?
EDWARD: Well, how about if I press my lips against your throat in an ambiguous way, just enough to ensure that readers come back for the sequel?
BELLA: It's a deal.

(Fade to black; roll credits; send in ushers to mop up audience's tears and drool.)

on a side note: I went red .....and I love it

( I am curvy which I like...but lately maybe tooo curvy...might start bloggin about fixing that lol)

this song feels like home


winter is here

good bye falling leaves and pumpkin spice....

hello mistletoe, peppermint and holiday bliss


winter and me have a love hate relationship. It used to be my favorite season(along with fall), but that was before I had to drive and be a grown up in the yucky weather.

But I still have a soft spot for this season and here is the candid truth.....

I have a thing with blankets......even when it is super super hot, I cant be comfortable on a couch without a blanket. This is the season for snuggling up with a blanket and a warm body if you are lucky :)

I love the smell of frost

I love the way you feel when you have been driving on a snowy evening and you see STARBUCKS. Following the rush of comfort you feel when you see it ....the way that hot cup feels in your hands.

the fact I can put snowboarding on my to do list ( if I can ever find the time)

I light more candles in the winter and I love the glow it gives the house

I look forward to walking the lights at temple square and seeing people transform our towns into the north pole.

I love the smell the furnace puts off when you have to turn it on the first time

hot bubble baths become a twice weekly thing in the winter

L.O.V.E - autumn and winter are by the far the most romantic seasons

all the holiday commercials on T.V

mittens, hats and coats

Christmas expos.....cheesy I know but I love going to them
(oh and tai pan)

Grandma Gerdas cheese balls which I make for my neighbors....lucky you if you live by me

homemade chocolate making days with my friends

the fact I get to read christmas books to my kids and see them light up at the thought of santa and reindeer

.....thats all that come to mind for now.....

But when I am at a loss for words music takes over

which means I have a whole plethora of songs that I tuck away until this snowy season

xoxo B

Regina spektor....

Thank you regina for the warm fuzzies I feel with I listen to your music. Thank you for the way I bounce, skip and dance in my bathroom. Thank you for making me dream....Thank you for being you.

megan drove and DID NOT have any regina in her car. This was a problem, but we rocked out to kings on the way...


my little point and shoot sucks a abnormal level in low light...sorry

then we went to chilis where we had a jalapeno eating contest...just for kicks and giggles. I think joni wins


the spookiest night of the year

Halloween....a day for ghost, goblins and superheroes. But in the case of my trio a bee, witch and the drover. We had a fun filled night of trick-or-treating, a harry potter house and dinner with friends. I dunno what I would do without my kidlets! I just love them to pieces, I could not ask for more perfect babies!

This little man without a doubt owns every piece of my heart! He is such a sweetie, he always checks on me...brushes my hair away and says " mommy you beautiful like a heart"

and this little ball of sass is my mini me

they were a little pouty that was cold

this one is my fav...hes my little drover! (for those who dont know who the drover is, it is a character from one of my favorite movies Australia) ahh...swoon

Then I took a few of megs and her kiddos

I adore this one

naturally we had to have a little photo face off

Here are some pics from Halloween day

we got sorted into our houses :)

I love kitkats huge wad of candy

As for other unblogged fall fun here are some highlights

we made lots of goodies and on this night it was cupcakes

then we hit up the pumpkin patch with courtney

they had a HUGE barrel slide.....lets just say I had rug burn on my thighs!!! ouch!!!

Its a very long post :)..anywho
Me and jess had ourselves a little bake off! Her team made orange rolls and my team made peanut butter balls!

last on my update was that I got a press pass to the ingrid michealson concert. I was bummed out cause I had been very sick the day before, so I wasnt able to enjoy it like I would have. she was amazing as expected...I was a happy girl :)

(more pics to come)

I hope everyone else has been enjoying fall before we SLAM into winter!
