I'm not sure how much I believe in horoscopes and predicting the future nonsense but I just happened to glance at this.

This totally sums up how I have been feeling for a really really long time. And I could not have put it any better.

The need to expand your horizons and break free from the limitations of your present life style is the major theme during this time period. At this point in your life your current situation seems too restrictive and confining. You feel hemmed in by surroundings and people that are too simplistic, narrowly focused, and petty.

So, the question is now, where do I start and how do I begin to change this??

Twilight Review

Ok, I'm not a tween girl, rather in my late 20's. But I have to say this is the first movie, in a long time, that I've watched and it left me wanting more. I love romance movies, or chick flicks some would say, and this was a new and unique twist on star crossed lovers. I enjoyed the idea of a vampire falling so in love with a "human" that he becomes a strong protective force and fights back his natural instincts to feed off the blood of his love. The special effects during points in the movie was a little corny and I caught myself giggling just a bit and saying "what the heck!". For all the hype that this movie received I was expecting better on that spectrum. The intimate, bonding relationship between the main characters is primarily the reason I fell in love with the movie. The dialogue between Belle and Edward and the moments Edward confessed his desiring love for her made me blush like a teen myself with my heart racing. Aye, if only love were truely that way!! (not for me I sound bitter?)

So, that's my brief review. I'm interested in reading the books now, but will probably just stick with the big screen versions. For one, I dont have much time to sit down and read and two I'm lazy in the fact that I'd rather the story be laid out to me visually. I'm excited for the next chapter release in Novemeber. Though I'll probably just stick to renting and watching it on iTunes.

Speaking of that, I feel the urge to watch Twilight again for the THIRD time before my rental period expires. You heard me right, 3 times! What can I say; I'm a fool for a good chick flick :o)

"Healthified" Food Recipies

Ever heard of this fabulous site?

I stumbled across it one day flipping through my good housekeeping magazine (or one of the million magazines I subscribe to). So I immediately went to the web to check it out. I'm always looking for new and healthier versions of traditional recipes. Since I last visited they have added tons more recipes. They also offer fitness advice and a community blog for support during weight lost etc.

And the other thing I love about this site. They offer a selection of coupons and all you need to do is print! You have to join the website first though (which is free)

Cheesy Potato Chowder = yum, yum , yum!

This is the first recipe I made. It was actually quite easy. Ingredients were simple and easy to find and the recipe was very easy to follow. It turned out well and very tasty! I had left overs for about 3 days.

If your looking for a healthier take on some of your favorites then I recommend this site!

P.S. :Let me know about any of the recipes you may try out!!

Snif, Snif.....BLAH!

Well, I've been meaning to work on some new designs to add in my shop. But, the process is going sooooo slowly. My creative juices have been sucked dry out of me from this dang sinus infection (or something) I've had for quite some time now! I've tried all kinds of home remedies that I can find or think up and nothing is beating it. I guess it's time to finally break down and go see the doc and be rid of my misery and sleepless nights. If only I had medical insurance, I think my decision to go would have been easier and quicker! But I'm still open to suggestions on home remedies if anyone has some good ones that work. Seems like from my past experiences of upper respitorary ailments that all they want to prescibe is antibotics. I mean, is that really the cure all? I'm envious of all you in warm weather climates. Ohio weather truely sucks the life outta me!

Done ranting!

So, I've been bad. I haven't updated my blog for weeks. Sometimes I just don't know what to blog about. This is all so new to me and I guess I'm really not an open person when it comes to sharing my life in detail. I'm working at it.

I would like to throw this out there though. If any Etsy customers happen to come over to this blog from my shop, I'd like to know from you what would you like to see in my shop (such as more sales and more selections) or any improvements ?

A Lazy & Rainy Sunday Afternoon

Don't we all feel this way on sunday afternoons? lol

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Hmmm IDK

So, I've been working on Save the Date Cards. And I just discovered two songs by Michael Buble that I'm absolutely in love with, Lost and Home. Its definitely putting me in the right mood to design these cards lol. And I'm sitting here thinking about The Notebook and how I really wanna watch it right now!! Yes, I like millions and millions of women, love this movie. I'd say it's probably my favorite and I cry every time like it's the first time I've seen it. I lost my grandpa to Alzheimer a few years back so it touches home. The combination of the music, designing cards and reading quotes from the movie is definitely making me hopelessly romantic and wishin I was making save the date cards for myself. *tear* I was in a relationship for 8 years and we recently split up so he could pursue graduating college and its been 4 months now. Needless to say its been very hard. But here's a few pics from the movie
And a Favorite Quote from the movie:

"So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What's it look like? If it's with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that's what you really wanted. But don't you take the easy way out."
