I had a a VERY fun filled & much needed girls night out. I hardly ever get girls nights so I treasure them when they happen. I went with 4 of the funnest and nicest ladies to see the midnight showing of "New Moon". We had bought the V.I.P. tickets and so it was an all night event!
We left at around 6pm and then went and got a bite to eat. Then we headed to the theater. We were a little early so we went to do some shopping. When we got back to the theater we got a gift bag with a red drink, a bag of red candies, & a book mark. We were seated and watched Twilight. When Twilight was over we got a slice of pizza, a cupcake, a large drink, & large popcorn. We then were able to get our choice of seats before everyone else for "New Moon".
There was a band playing in the lobby and TONS of women and a few men. All of this was included in our ticket. It was well worth it and so so so much fun! I really enjoyed the movie and thought it was much better than Twilight. Now to count down to "ECLIPSE" only 7 months to go!

Day 21

I am thankful for the technology that surrounds us. The easy access to information and the ease of being able to communicate with friends and family!

DAY 20

I am thankful for warm flannel sheets, a soft comfortable bed and fluffy pillows that I can crawl into and snuggle up with. Close my weary eyeballs and sleep! Especially when it is cold outside!

Day 19

Today I am grateful for FRIENDS! What would the world be like with out them? They are there when you need a shoulder to cry on or a ear to vent to. They are there for Slurpee runs, trips to Target, road trips (although not so much now that I am married with kids), poker nights and so much more. Friends are fabulous!

Day 15

I am a little late getting this posted as the day is almost over. However it is still the 15th so I am good right?
We had a little Thanksgiving dinner tonight at our house with my side of the family. My mom and sister are headed to Florida for Thanksgiving to spend some time with my brother Ammon and sis-in-law Karla. I decided it would be nice to have a Thanksgiving dinner with them before they go. It was nice everyone pitched in and we had a delicious dinner and had a nice time with each other.
So to day I am thankful for FAMILY (mine and Ryan's)!!!!!
I am grateful for the support and love that they give to us! I truly believe that there is NOTHING better than family!
I LOVE YOU GUYS! Thanks for loving me!
