Really, I'm not THAT obsessed...Really. So I've read the books a couple of times and listen to them while I clean. What of it? True, our dog's name is Bella. I didn't name her. Yes, my friends and I did attend a special showing...AND dress up. It's not like I put a lot of thought into it...oh wait...I DID. I draw the line at being referred to as a "Twihard." No way. Not going there. Uh oh, these pictures MIGHT incriminate me... At least I'm not alone.

I'm like 51% Team Edward and 49% Team Jacob
(To my knowledge, I am the creator of that phrase. I need to mass produce some shirts. I'm sitting on a goldmine.)

Getting "Sparkly"

Me with sisters Jenny, Charmaine, Clarissa and Chantal.
I. Love. These. Ladies.


I printed up the Quileutte pack's tattoos.

We had such a fun night. Dinner, movie, and frozen yogurt...Good times!

Vanity Fair

Ever have one of those days when you're done getting ready and you think to yourself, "Hmmm, I look pretty good"? (You know you have, but might not want to admit it for the fear of what others may think of you. That's just double egotistical...You DO know I'm kidding, right? Good.) This was one of those days...

Have I Mentioned Lately My Husband is in a Band?

Well...he is.
And they're kind of a BIG deal.

Peace Out (Or an Assortment of Funny Things Grace is Known to Have Said)

While sharing popcorn with Nana, Grace was also sharing with Cookie.
She looked up at Kara and said, "Whoa! Go easy Nana! This popcorn is for Cookie."

After I finished a phone call with Jeff, Grace said, "I love Daddy. He's the BEST in the Best!"

Driving to Josh and Jamie's we passed Camelback Mountain and Grace exclaimed, "that mountain looks like moon rocks and over there is the milky way." After I recovered from shock I asked her where she heard that from and she replied, "Dora."

Jeff was calling me out for behaving like a madwoman whenever we are loading up for a trip and Grace said, "you have to understand, she's bossy."

As I tucked Grace in bed I said, "Maybe tomorrow you can be my helper and we can clean your room." She tisks and replied, "No, I'm already busy."

(To Jamie and Alexis) "You crack me nuts!"

After Grace refused to stay in bed, Jeff finally became serious and threatened her. She exclaimed, "Ugh!!! You're KILLING my LIFE!!!!!" (and slammed her door) Jeff and I chuckled in bed as I secretly thought, "funny now...not so much when she's a teenager."

My favorite words that Grace says (or has stopped saying):

"Perftect" (perfect)
"Bella's 'tracing' me!" (chasing)
"Gobbles" (gloves)
"Gerty" (yogurt)
"Burroti" (burrito)
