Where have I been? I fell off the blogging wagon there for a second – but I’m back!

The Weekend

Not sure where it went, but I didn’t get much done. We purchased the paint for the living room, but none of it actually touched the walls. Friday night, we went over to my dad’s for dinner to celebrate his 51st birthday, Saturday was running around and then some bar hopping on Saturday night, and Sunday consisted of me laying in the bed until about 1 and then Shane’s parents came over for some hang out time and dinner. It definitely flew by!

The New Furniture

The couch is really, really big. I was a little bit worried that it was too big, so I may take out one of the inside chairs and put it in the sitting room. Not sure yet, though. We’ll see how the paint makes the room look. Also, as part of our running around on Saturday we think that we may have found a rug for the living room at Lowe’s. They actually have a pretty good selection and they are C-H-E-A-P! Just what we were looking for! I can’t find them online and I didn’t take a pic, but we’ll be back to Lowe’s (trust me) and I’ll try to snap a quick pic for your viewing pleasure.

Book Review

So, as you may have noticed, I was reading Twilight (started two Thursdays ago) and am now reading New Moon. I’m officially on the bandwagon and am thoroughly enjoying it. I don’t think that I’m as crazed as some about the book, but oh, but I’m hooked. I want to become a vampire and date Edward – stat. And I’m so excited that the Twilight movie is available OnDemand this weekend – I know what I’ll be watching!

The book that I was reading before Twilight was The Almost Moon, by Alice Sebold. Absolutely horrible…horrible. I loved her book The Lovely Bones, but this one didn’t hold a candle to that book. Horrible.

So, work is really busy this week, but hopefully I’ll be able to at least get the kitchen trim painted during the week so that I can focus on the living room this week. Stay tuned this week to details about our new deck (yeah, come on) and our search for a security system.

Hope that you all have a great week!


  1. So, you are hooked?!?!?! Don’t get too excited about the movie – it doesn’t compare to the book. New Moon is good, can be a little slow - so keep in there. I promise you will fall in love with not just Edward. =)

  2. D - I've heard that about the movie...but I'm still excited to see it. I see Robert Pattinson as my Edward when I'm reading - so beautiful.

    And what a suspenseful comment - is it Jacob I will like too???? I'm dying to know how this is all going to turn out!!!

  3. You’ll just have to read to see what happens. All I can say is book 4 is unexpected (and my least fav!)

    Yes, I do agree Robert is a hottie!
