Weekend Update

This was one busy weekend!

Madison started T-ball on Friday... she is pretty excited, and that makes me pretty excited! My sister Toni is the coach, and she happens to be one of Madison's favorite people in the whole world, so I'm hoping this will be the beginning of a real interest for Madison.

Madison stayed at Toni's house Friday night, so we got to see the latest Fast and Furious installment, and it was definitely entertaining, but still doesn't quite live up to the first movie. Personally the second and third could not exist and I'd be alright... without Vin Diesel and the rest of the original cast, it got pretty cheesy, so this was refreshing and very action-packed.

Saturday I cleaned house. OOoooooooooooo...

Saturday night, however, I was off to Amy and Ken's house for girl's night. We had dinner - it was fabulous (as always), and we watched "Twilight". (I ate way too many carbs, but it was really delicious...I went on an hour bike ride tonight to try to undo some of that!) The acting was alright, just alright for me. A few of the cast weren't quite what I'd pictured when reading, and I'm not quite sure about Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen (hmmm... wonder if I'll get hate mail). However, two things they absolutely got spot on were the locations and sets. The forest... wow, their homes (her kitchen looked exactly as I'd seen in my head) and how about the last scene at the prom? I'd have to say the last scene was definitely my favorite, followed by the baseball game. They left a few things out from the book that I would have liked to see, but overall, it was a good schmoopy teenage/vampire love story. Everyone else last night had already read through all four books, I'm only in the middle of book 2 (New Moon), so they were trying not to talk much about things I haven't read yet, LOL. It was a great night out with friends, and I'm looking forward to doing it again soon!

Today was crazy with errands for much of the day, but Madison and I found a couple of hours to hang out at the park... Tomorrow starts another busy week! How was your weekend, Internet?

T Ball sounds like fun for Madison.

I haven't seen any of the F&F movies... but i thought the original cast was in the recent one.. i dont watch t.v. tho.. i just thought i saw an ad online for it.

Good luck to Madison. With your sister there, that will help a lot.

It was a good weekend. On Saturday. we went to Verizon and all got new phones then went out to eat. On Sunday, it was church, in-laws, a nap, then hung out with the family.

I am glad you finally got to see Twlight. I enjoyed it and the way I see it the movies can only get better as they go on and really get to know the story more. :)

Joe - Yeah, I vow to NEVER be one of those Moms. :)

Jiggins (OTGP) - Yes, the original cast is in the latest movie. Thankfully!

Fred: Sounds like you had quite an eventful weekend too. :)

VP: I'm on page 275 of book two as of right now, and yes... this story is really developing!! I can't wait to see how this plays out.
