So... I saw the movie on Friday. Loved it! Of course... though I wasn't sure I would. I am often dissapointed with movies that come from a book. I thought they did a great job. I had origninally been really dissapointed in the actor they chose to play Edward. Eck... but, I have to say that he did a great job. I've been watching all weekend how much money the movie would make. I had read on Friday that they wern't considering making New Moon a movie unless Twilight earned 150 million. It made 70 million this opening weekend, and I read on wikipedia that they have already approved the making of New Moon... thank GOODNESS!!! They sure left it open for it at the end!!

Anyway... going to the movie has reopened my Bella Edward obsession, and I'm going through the series again. I'm already through Twilight and will be starting New Moon (my least fav.. I'm thinking about skipping over it) after I'm done with this post. Though, Brother MacDonald asked me yesterday if he could borrow my copy of New Moon. I havn't decided yet it this will be my excuse to skip over it or not!

I'm a Bella! I found out through Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!

Poll: What do you think we are going to have this time?

I got this idea from Cathy... I thought it was pretty cool.

Take my poll to the side and let me know what you think we are going to have this time!
Steve and I are leaning heavy in one direction, but I won't tell you what that opinion is... don't want to contaminate the polling process you know! I won't be putting in my answer until a few people have voted.

Sarah McLachlan

It's no secret that my favorite singer/songwriter is Sarah McLachlan. I fell in love with her music back in 1997, when her Surfacing CD came out.

The hard part about being a SM fan is that she takes soooo long to come out with her next CD. She is often coming out with songs, but not usually related to a CD release of her own, but a soundtrack or some colaboration with another artist. What frustrates me even more is it seems that after an new album is released, she puts out a Greatest Hits CD. Drives me nuts. Not to rip on my favorite artist or anything, but how many times can you release albums with the previous songs with a few others added?!?!!!!! Her lastest album release is a Best Of. I swear, this is like the 5th CD release with previous songs.

I am however consoled for the moment, since there are two FABULOUS new songs on the newest album. Thank goodness! But I swear, I going to start going through withdrawels if I don't get a WHOLE NEW ALBUM sooon!! (I bet you her next NEW album will feature the two new songs... I would put money on it)

I love Sarah's Music

Sooooo Tired

I am feeling so tired all the time. Normally I'm a morning person. I love being up at 6 and getting started with all my little assingments like laundry, cleaning the house, studying scriptures... stuff like that. But for the past 3 weeks, I cannot seem to get out of bed until about 830, it is seriously hampering my ability to take care of my home. I wake up tired and I'm tired all day. It sucks!! No matter how early I go to bed, even if I wake up at 630 or 7, I will just lay there in bed because I feel SOOOO TIRED!!! Don't get me wrong... I'm extremely grateful to be pregnant right now, but WHY do I HAVE to be so TIRED ALL THE TIME?!!?

The Singing

Remember how I was frustrated a while back about how the next book to my favorite story was being postponed till March! Ha!! I was so driven to read it, I finally went to and found an Australian printed copy for a pretty good price. I'm really surprised it's paperback. Matthew Sadler and I were discussing that maybe only in the US do books come out in Hardback first. Who knows... anyway... after waiting anxiously every day for the book to arrive in the mail.... it has finally arrived. I'm so excited!

Yes Mandy! It's true... of course... when I'm done, I will hand it over!


So, I had a regular appointment this morning. Everything seems to be well... the baby has grown and there is still a heartbeat! Yea!

Finally was able to make the appointment with the Perinatal office. That appointment is not until December 1st, which is the same day of my next regular Dr. office visit. That will be interesting.

Thanks everyone for your continued prayers. Know that they are felt!!

I'm going to go take a nap now.

What This City Needs!!

I am wanting some Chick-fil-A right now. Steve and I talk all the time about how many good resturants we love that are NOT in this city.... such as:

Cracker Barrell
Golden Corral

You know... a Cracker Barrell would fit in so nicely! At least they have put in a Texas Roadhouse... I wonder if it's open yet?

I am Pregnant...

Yes, it is true! I am six weeks along right now.
There have been many relatives and close friends that we have told, but I was not planning on telling everyone until we made it through the first trimester.... that is, until today.

Today I started to bleed heavily... yes, I know it could mean that I am going to have a miscarriage. But I havn't yet. I also started to lose blood clots; just like the previous pregnancy with Joshua. Today I went to the Dr. to check things out. The ultrasound went well... there is a HEARTBEAT, which is awesome, but... the ultra-sound technician discovered something that no one has ever caught before. Apparently it looks like I have what is called a Septated Uterus, which is sort of a partition down the center of the uterus. This can apparently cause problems with pregnancy. In the next week or so, I will be seeing a Perinatal Dr, and check out what options there are for this kind of issue.

Because of the complications that I am having (again), I've decided to let everyone know... please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I will update things here when I learn more.

My Voting Experience

Well... I'm feeling pretty proud that I live in a country where I can vote for my leaders. I was pretty lucky today. I walked in to my polling area at about 1205 and walked out less than 10 min later. No line for me! Love it!! Was anyone else that lucky?

Voting In Washoe County

There is a cool little website that you can visit where you can find out if you are registered here in Washoe County. Another neat little thing it tells you is what location you are supposed to go vote. I thought that was great. It does not, however, tell you what time the polls open.
