Brace Face...

Well the time has come, and I had to get braces... AGAIN! I have had them on for a little under 3 months and I am dying! I hate these things! The pain is not the problem, it's the fact that I have to wear them and always worry about something being stuck in them. About six or seven years ago I had braces and only had to wear them for about 18 months, well that wasn't so bad because everyone I knew had them too. That is so not the case now. Everyone I know now has either already had them, or was blessed to never have them. I am hoping to only have them for about 9 months tops, however my orthodontist said I could have them between 9-12 months. I really hope it's sooner because I would hate to have them at Brian's college graduation in May. I don't want to look like his kid sister!

The Twilight Series

My best friend Whitney has been trying to get me to read the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer since this time last year, but I must admit when she told me it was about vampires I wasn't compelled to start them. So the year went by and suddenly everyone I knew was reading these books and telling me how great they were. My boss was talking to me one day and told me that she just started reading the best book and sure enough it was Twilight. Well that same day my friend Paola chose it for our book club and I was actually excited to read it and see what all the hoopla was about. I picked it up the next day and.... snap I was hooked! I couldn't put it down, I finished it in less than a few hours and immediately picked up the second, and then the third. Finally I was on the last book and couldn't wait to see how it all ended. Unfortunately for me, I was not as impressed by the last book as I was with all the others. I would tell you why, but there are plenty of people that are reading it and I do not want to spoil it. Don't be discouraged by my not liking it though, there are plenty of people who loved it, I just wasn't one of them. Even though I wasn't a fan of the last book, I am still a huge fan of the series as a whole and highly recommend the books, they are so good and super quick reads. I am actually really bummed the series is complete. I wish there were more books in the series because I am not done with reading about a couple of the characters. I AM excited that the movie is coming out soon! The trailer looks pretty good! I can't wait to see how it all comes together with the book. :-)

Go Twins?

So I have always been a fan of the Angels, I love going to the games, eating hot dogs and cheering on those boys in white. On Friday Brian and I went to see the Angels play the Minnesota Twins and were so disappointed! The first couple of innings were uneventful, then all of the sudden we were getting showered with foul balls, our friend Kevin got one, he dove for it and bruised his knees. Then our Angels let the Twins get 9 runs to win the game at 9-0, I am embarrassed to admit that I almost started cheering for the other team, but the Angels really need to step it up! The only thing that saved the night were the Big Bang Fireworks which, as always, are amazing!
