Just a warning- this is a rather long post!
Wanna see my cute Birthday Boy? Here he is blowing out his candles-
We went simple- cupcakes, family only and lots of fun. :)
Here is my book-
Yesterday I went to a movie with my cousin(more on that at the end) and after we went shopping. I found a plain-ish notebook at Target for $2.49 and brought it home to give it a makeover and turn it into my Christmas book. I plan on using it for wish lists, project lists, etc. You know, all those lists and lists you make every year and wind up lost? Hopefully this will keep me better organized this year. I think I will add some embellishments to the front so it's not too plain but I don't know what yet. And I should have taken a picture of it before I altered it but I forgot. I guess I was too excited to get started. :)
And now for my confession. Hoo-boy, it's a doosy. But feel free to skip this. I won't care. In fact, I'd probably prefer it so that you all don't know what a colossal dork I am.
I'm sure you all have heard of the Twilight phenomenon gripping a hold of every teenage girl in America. So... I swore up and down that I was not going to read those books. I mean come on! Vampires? Uh-uh. Not my scene. Seriously. How lame can you get?
Then a couple months ago we took an unexpected trip out of state. The library was closed. So we stopped at the Walmart so I could pick up a magazine or two to read on the way. I grabbed some mags and a Nicholas Sparks book. Then I spied Twilight. I picked it up to see how much it was out of curiosity. It was only like $6 so I figured, what the heck? It's an 8+ hour drive, the book was 500 pages, at least it would give me something to do.
Well. Guess what? I was sucked in. Big time. I don't know why. But I was. Sigh. I read Twilight and then borrowed the next 3 from my cousin(who had borrowed them from her friend). I read those in like a week and a half. I couldn't stop. I don't know what came over me. It was crazy.
Now, where is all this going?
Oh the shame...
I went to the movie too. Yes I did. And on opening weekend, no less. And the movie was not as horrible as I expected. I was prepared for a complete stinker of a movie. Was it a fantastic movie just like the book? Absolutely not. Was it entertaining? Sure. Will I see it again? Maybe. Will I be reading the books again? Without a doubt.
And there you have it. My deep dark shameful secret. I'm a Twilight fan.
Can you all forgive me? :)
