It's been a bit quiet around here today. Hope all of you are looking forward to your weekends.
I love this picture from the new EW issueIf I had a body like Krisella's....you'd better believe I'd flaunt it
They look too adorable together here, and I guess it's one of the few happy shots we'll see of Edward and Bella from Part 1. Can we assume in this picture, that Bella is wearing the very tiny shorts and tank in an effort to entice Edward into something a little more exciting than a game of chess?
You go girl!
I also love Robward's bare toes peeking out from underneath his leg. Susie
~ Congrats on completing much of your online coursework, and especially getting paid for it! You certainly deserve something in addition to the usual continuing education hours, as it seems like you're put in your fair share of time and effort. Glad to hear DD had a lovely conclusion to her birthday, sharing your delicious chocolate cake with family and close friends. My daughter has had homework every night, but nothing she couldn't handle. We're encouraging her to focus on her time management skills and work on studying for tests and things in advance, especially as her schedule gets busier with other activities. Hope you had fun at hub's company picnic and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. Our temps are finally
starting to cool down just a bit at night (60's), but it's still pretty hot and humid during the day (low 90's), and I'm ready
for fall! (Tracy stamps foot and pouts) Ginnie
~ Hey there hon--great to see you! I know you'll miss the kiddos, but you'll really treasure those precious three hours a day (and more on Friday), and make them count. Be sure to save some time to indulge yourself in a guilty pleasure or two.
Are the kids looking forward to the start of school?Rachel
~ I think we're all in agreement here with very few, if any positive things to say about the BD movie poster. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the poster is not
the real deal. Caryn
~ Hope you're feeling better from your sinus migraine today. We'll certainly keep your cousin Erik (and his family) in our thoughts and prayers, and we thank him for his service to this country. Is he still in Afghanistan, and when will he return to the States?
I finally had a chance to read the Breaking Dawn article in this week's Entertainment Weekly today. I agree with what most of you have already said.....what a funny article, and could Rob and Kris sound any more adorable together, shushing each other and almost finishing one another's sentences.
I love how defensive Rob is about Edward, and how he sort of rails on Edward for letting Jacob continue to monopolize Bella at times, such as during Bella and Jacob's dance at the wedding:"Yeah, 'cause I don't want him to look like an idiot.... And that's at our wedding, before I've even danced with her! If that was reality, being a good man at that moment is going up and kicking the guy's a$$ so hard that he won't come back."
You go Rob!
Has anyone read the book Divergent
, by first-time author, Veronica Roth? I'm terrible at summaries, so I'll link one here, from the author's blog
that describes the book more eloquently than I can. I borrowed it from a coworker who shares similar tastes in books as myself (Twilight, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, among others), and I just couldn't put it down. It's the first book in a series of three, and it's somewhat reminiscent of The Hunger Games with the focus on young adults and a sort of futuristic, dystopian society. I found the characters compelling and the book full of suspense, and I hate that I'll have to wait until May of 2012 to read the second book in this captivating series.
