Last year Brian and I started watching True Blood on HBO. I didnt think I would like it at all. I was never into the Vampire thing. Well to my surprise I loved it. We were hooked. We cant wait for Season 2 starting in June.

When Twilight came our I didnt think I would want to watch it because it seemed so different from True Blood. And it was. Brian and I watched the movie Twilight a few weeks ago. While the beginning of the movie was slow the middle and end got pretty interesting. The end was definitely a cliff hanger. I found myself wanting to see what happens next. So of course I bought the book.

I figure before I read the second book to find out what happens I better read the first to make sure I didnt miss anything. As you know books are usually always better than the movie. I am so glad I decided to read the first book before moving on to the second. I cant put the thing down! Even though I know what will happen I still am enthralled!!!! Once I start reading I dont want to stop and when I am not reading it, I want to be. Its crazy. I read all the reviews and everyone was talking about how great the books are. I just kind of shrugged it off as another trend.

Well now I know what they were talking about. I started reading Book 1 on Sunday and hope to be done tomorrow. Now if it was up to me I would have not put the thing down and read it all in one day. But the reality of it is that I have a husband and son that need my attention. As much as I would love to spend the day reading my book (ideally on the beach), it just wont happen. So for now I read on my lunch break and a little at night!

I have book 2 on its way. I heard it isnt as good as the first. I kind of read a spoiler about it so I know some of what is going to happen. I am still excited to get to it! I will let you all know how that one was.

I definitely recommend reading the Twilight Series. I promise, you will love it!

True Blood too...if you can, watch Season 1 to get caught up. It will pull you right in!

First day of spring

Here are a few shots I took a few weekends was so nice out!!!

On another note...I almost told Owen that Santa is pretend. He was asking me a whole bunch of questions (as usual). Then came the "is this real" questions. He was asking about power rangers, transformers, super man (should I let him think he is real), all the super heros, I am just playing along...not fully paying attention. I was saying no to everything because if I tell him any of those things are real he will be scared to death!!! Well then comes "Is Santa Clause real?". I started to say no!!!! Thank God I caught myself. I think he would be the only four and a half year old that does not believe. I just thought that was a funny story. Moral of the story...PAY ATTENTION!
