I read all 4 books in the Twilight Saga. Yes that's right, all 4 books. And I loved every second of it! Becky, aren't you so proud!
I read the entire saga consecutively so it was like one long story for me. And it was awesome! I couldn't help but be enthralled by the story and the characters. I know some people are judgemental about the whole Twilight phenomenon (and I admit, I use to be one of those people), but seriously the books are very well written. The characters, plot, and the themes are highly developed and intense in every way. I consider myself well read (please note my sense of humbleness here! LOL!) and I am no longer ashamed to admit that I am a Twilight lover!
Like I said I read all 4 one-right-after-the-other so when the last book was over, it was tough. An old friend of mine told me that she thinks there needs to be a Help Line you can call when you finish the saga! I needed some emotional support when I knew that there would be no more to the story! I was completely wrapped up in it and when its over people need some reassurance that life will go on when there is no more Edward and Bella! HAHAHA!! :-)
At least I have the movies still to come! (But I bet the books are better than the movies!)

So I must resort to a good ole bullet list to touch on the things that I haven't blogged about.
- I am trying to buy a house. I am desperately trying to get out of apartment living but we will have to wait and see what is God's will on this matter. Keep my living situation in your prayers please!
- I started teaching part-time at an after-school tutoring center. I love it but it is hard to get back in the swing of working a fixed schedule. Truly I love working with students, especially with students who are struggling academically and need help gaining confidence in their abilities.
- I am still looking for a permanent job. Whether that be teaching in a classroom, working in the homes, or doing whatever it is that God leads me to. I am working on letting my control of this go. I know I have to trust in God's plan and I have faith in this plan. But in all honesty, I just want a little peek at his plan so I can relax about the future! ;-)
- Best Friend Laura has moved her wedding location and date so it looks like in December I will be the Maid of Honor in a wedding in HAWAII! Whoohoo!! HAWAII!
I guess that is all for now. I am sorry for this supremely boring post and I accept the "World's Boringest Blogger" title with grace! ;-)

I am NOT ridiculously excited to ride these new toys!!
This week I DID NOT forget how to do simple division and have a third grader show me up, then proceed to to tell me that "I got served". And I DID NOT continue to secretly check his work with a calculator.
I DID NOT beg the nail salon to stay open late for me and my mom so that I could get my nails, toes, and eyebrows done before my trip, and I DID NOT have them paint dice on my big toes to be all theme-ish for Vegas!

I love going to concerts as the sober one. It is so fun to sit and watch drunk people act a fool. We were sitting next to some characters. One lady was so drunk that she fell into the group in front of her before Kenny Chesney even started! The guy next to us was so inebriated that he told me his whole life story. I did not need to know that this guy is separated from his wife (who he was at the concert with) and that after 16 years and 2 kids they were breaking up. I mean seriously guy, TMI!
So moral of the story is that it was an awesome concert. :-) I attempted to get some good pictures but didn't get any good results! Oh well!
