The Host was good.... But heart still belongs to Edward!!!

I went to the Stephenie Meyer's book signing of "The Host" with some of my fellow fanatical friends!! We got there three hours early and scored front row seats during her Q&A!! It was awesome and she was really personable and nice!! I am a bigger fan after hearing her talk about her books and her life!! We had so much fun, but the highlight was our fantastic t-shirts-- compliments of my amazingly talented friend Maria!! Since my friend Heather pretty much spent the night getting tickets to the event, we were all in the first 50 to get our books signed!! I had her sign all four books I own! After we all went to Applebee's for girls night out!!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful Mother's!!! Especially to my own Mother who is the ultimate example and greatest friend!! I love and miss you Mom!!!

A Mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.

Elitch Gardens!

We decided to get season passes to the local amusement park, Elitch gardens. We were a little worried it would be "ghetto" because of the rock bottom price, but we were surprisingly wrong!! It was fun and had a really great kids area! Dorothy fell in love with a roller coaster there (much like the goofy roller coaster at Disney) and rode it around 15 times. There were no lines for the kids rides so we just spent the day bouncing from ride to ride! James even watched the kids so I could enjoy a few of the really crazy rides they have for adults!

Look close Dorothy is screaming in the front row!

Happy May Day!!

I have always thought this is the most underrated holiday!! I bet most of you didn't know today was even May day!!! No, it is not a holiday about sending a distress signal. Wikipedia says: May Day has been a traditional day of festivities throughout the centuries. It is most associated with towns and villages celebrating springtime fertility and revelry with village fetes and community gatherings. Perhaps the most significant of the traditions is the Maypole, around which traditional dancers circle with ribbons.

So happy May day!! Now that you know, go out a celebrate (preferably with a Maypole!!!)
