Weekend Update [but not with Seth Meyers]

Here is a little update about what I did this last weekend. I went to a Taylor Swift concert in Omaha with my best friend Jessica. AND we got to MEET her! It was pretty cool! I have to admit, I wasn't a huge fan of her before [I liked her a lot, just not as much as Jessica did], but now I really love her. She really knows how to put on a show! WOW...was pretty much all I could say afterwards! It was like watching a broadway musical. There were so many props and costume changes and she acted out every song and did a very cool routine. Some of the performances made the songs better! Like her performance for the song "Haunted" was my favorite! Girls hung from the ceiling from ribbon type things and swung around and danced from them, it was very cool! If you ever have a chance to see her concert, DO IT! And did I mention that we got to meet her! She is SUPER sweet, and talks to you like you've known her for years!

They aren't the best pictures, and don't quite capture the excitement, but it was hard to do.

Updates for MI and ID series!

Exciting news for fans of the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series!!! Jace has been cast for the movie...and the cover has been revealed for the 2nd Infernal Devices book, "Clockwork Prince"!!!

They have cast Jamie Campbell Bower [Caius from New Moon] as Jace Wayland in the Mortal Instruments movie, and I'm pretty excited! I really had my heart set on Alex Pettyfer, but after thinking about it for awhile, I think Jamie will do great! After all, he was high on Cassandra's list to play Jace, so I will trust her judgment :) 

Here is the cover for "Clockwork Prince", Jem is the character on the cover!

Stylish Blogger Award :)

I am SO flattered that erinj0 gave me the "Stylish Blogger Award"! I think this is very cool, and I am grateful! :) I am excited to do this! By receiving that, I have to list 7 facts about myself. So here they are...

I am officially addicted to "Criminal Minds"! I have been watching it every evening/night for the last couple weeks, and although I have loved it and other crime drama shows for years, I am now officially addicted to this show! I can't get enough of it! I just bought the set of seasons 1-5 and can't wait to watch them all! And Matthew Gray Gubler [Dr. Spencer Reid] is just wonderful :)

I am going to 2 concerts this summer. Taylor Swift, this coming weekend with my best friend, and New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys in July! Yep, I was SUPER obsessed with BSB when I was younger, and I FINALLY get to see them in concert! I can't wait!

I am obsessed with painting my nails. I never used to [very often], but a few months ago I started doing it more and now I can't stop. Any bright colors, I LOVE bright colors :)

The Burger King "King" scares the crap outta me! He is way freaky, and gives me the heebie jeebies! Also, the BK flute player guy, he is odd and creepy, too! I think I have something against BK...

My iPhone is my life. I had to wait far too long to get one [I had to wait until Verizon got them], but I bought one the day they came out [in February]! I'm in love! It's the best thing EVER! It's not a phone, it's a way of life :)

I am in desperate need of a job. I'm going through a rough spot in life, and had to leave the job I loved more than anything. We moved to a different town and I had a part time job there, then it closed. Bad luck, I guess. Now I don't have a job, and really need one!

I am definitely a night owl. I do not do mornings, at all! Since it's almost 1 in the morning right now, I think that says enough. 

And now I pass this along to 7 other blogs that I love! :)

Color Splash Sunday 5-22

I have to say, Color Splash Sunday is definitely my favorite blog hop! 

This is a picture of my best friend, Jessica, and me on our vacation last fall. It was taken in the mine where we toured!

Another Lazy Saturday...

Another lazy Saturday for me! Maybe I'll read, maybe I'll veg, or maybe I'll try to find some Criminal Minds to watch (I think I'm officially addicted to that show!) :)

I [heart] RadioU

This has been a long week, I haven't done much, including blogging :( Hopefully this weekend will be more exciting...[fingers are crossed]. Currently I am listening to RadioU via internet radio. It is my FAVORITE radio station...ever! It helps me when I'm in a rough place in life [like I am right now] and plays great music. Period.

Late nights

I just LOVE "Criminal Minds", and I love that Ion plays it every night :) I like all crime drama shows, but this is my favorite! 

This is just a little thing I just made, I found the quote and really liked it, so I put it with a picture I took.

"Today I don't feel like doing anything, I just wanna lay in my bed"

The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars is my song for the day :) "I'll be lounging on the couch, just chilling in my Snuggie" (no, I don't own a Snuggie!)


I was just browsing online, and came across these pictures. Is it just me, or does Rob look EXTRA handsome in these pictures?! I think I just melted over these pictures...

Concert on the Couch...

So I watched the Family Force 5 concert tonight. Yes, I spent my Friday night sitting at home watching a live stream of my favorite band's concert...I'm just THAT cool! :) But it was pretty AWESOME! I had fun :)

I had my Sixlets to munch on...

and my coffee to drink...

Here are a couple pictures...

My favorite member, the bassist :)

The guitarist...

It's Friday again...


I'm pretty excited for tonight :) My favorite band is streaming their concert online tonight, and since I'm THAT cool, I'm going to sit on my couch and watch it! :) What a wonderful way to spend a Friday night!

Blog Hop Wednesday...

Here are the 2 Blog Hops I'm doing today

Blogging Hints Catch a Wave Wednesday

{one} when was the last time you used a pay phone (if ever)?
Probably when I was in high school, we had one in the school for various reasons

{two} did you ever fail a subject in school?
Hmm...I think Algebra II, the teacher hated me, I hated her, she refused to help me because I wasn't one of the "popular" kids so I pretty much failed on purpose

{three} where do you go to get your favorite hamburger/cheeseburger?
I really liked the burgers at the coffee house where I worked, but sadly I can't get those anymore

{four} have you ever served jury duty?

{five} how old were you when you moved out of your parents’ house?
Well if you count college, when I was 18. But then I moved back for a little bit and officially moved out when I got married when I was 21

{six} what is your favorite color to wear?
Black, it looks sharp (and slimming!) or else pretty much any bright or neon color! I love bright colors!

{seven} do you have a pair of shoes that you wear all the time?
During the summer I live in flip flops. Other times of the year I wear my Nike Eclipses ALL the time!

{eight} do you enjoy talk radio?
No way, it's way too boring!

{nine} if you could turn one unhealthy food into a healthy one, what food would it be?
French Fries! Oh my, I could eat them all the time! And it WOULD be nice if they were healthy so I wouldn't have to feel so bad eating them :)

{ten} who is the best speaker you’ve ever heard in person?
I'm not really interested in hearing speakers. But I would love to hear Todd Burpo speak sometime...

Facebook Page!

If you like my blog, please check out my Facebook Page, and LIKE it!! Thanks! :)

May you see drops like stars...

While I was waiting for the new Sookie Stackhouse book to come out, I read "Drops Like Stars" by Rob Bell. It's a very encouraging story about suffering and creativity and some things to think about while you are suffering through a hard time. A very appropriate book for me to read right now! I encourage everyone to read it, even if you aren't going through a tough time in life!

And now..."Dead Reckoning"!!! I bought it yesterday and started it last night! I hope to get it done in a few days, like I did with the first 10 books in the series! :) I just love being in the Sookie Stackhouse world...and I love Eric :)

Blog Hops

I've decided to start doing some blog hops, hoping to get more followers!

May 1, 2011

Color Splash Sunday 5-1-11

So I decided to start some blog hops and such, just for the fun of it. So here is my first one, I hope you all like it! Some flowers from my grandma's funeral, yellow roses, I thought were so pretty!

The Host

Well, I finished it! It still took me longer than expected. My grandmother passed away on Easter, we were very close, so it was so hard on me. So I was gone all week and didn't get much time to read, but I finished it on Tuesday. It was slow going in the beginning, but it picked up toward the end. I think that it should have picked up a lot sooner, but the end was very good! For awhile I was thinking it was going to be a sad ending, but it surprised me! :) Gotta love Stephenie Meyer! Now I'm waiting until the next Sookie Stackhouse book comes out on Tuesday (YAY!!) to read any more, so I might take a little break, or I might read Drops Like Stars by Rob Bell while I'm waiting, we'll see...
