two years

i have been anxiously waiting two years for this movie

two years ago i read the entire series, fast like in the span of two weeks
for me that is big since it takes me forever to read an entire book
i read the first book and couldn't get enough
 hubby went out and bought me the second before i finished the first,
 when i finished reading the last book i was sad
felt like a teeny bopper
it was great

{though i must confess that i watched the movies before even reading the books,
 i fell for Edward. Yes, TEAM EDWARD, I said it!}

when i first heard of twilight i didn't understand what all the hype was about
i thought it was just another teeny bopper movie,
 i was turned off with the whole vampire thing, who would have known
boy was i wrong {and out of the loop}
 i love a good love story
i am a romantic at heart

unlike the teeny boppers and their mommies, i won't be watching it thursday night a midnight
although i'd like to, i have to work and probably would fall asleep during the movie
so i will be attending the friday night showing,
 i can't wait, all the movies have been great.
my favorite has to be the first.

and since i am at it, a house like hers

(if you haven't met edie, go visit her blog, her house is amazing, her story is awesome!)

not necessarily in that order.
i guess that is not bad, at least for today.

sometimes when i get caught up in what i want or what i don't have
i have to stop and then realize that i do have a lot and i begin to have a grateful heart
though i may not have a lot by other's standards

i am grateful for what i do have:
a great husband and family
financial stability in these times of uncertainty for many
the opportunity to work part time and pursue other interests
a home to clean, organize, and decorate

God is good!

now to get back to my number one item, a clean house!

Have a great weekend!

whats for dinner?

today i want to make this yummy looking chicken and dumplings soup

i found the recipe here on Edie's blog.
 {I love her blog and her house is amazing! you should check it out if you haven't yet met her.}

I love soup and this one will hit the spot especially since we have had a bit of chilly weather here in so cal.

perfect weather for soup, a warm blanky, and a good movie, and of course snuggling.

i am watching water for elephants, love Robert Pattinson!
I also just started reading the book.

Happy Monday!
