Breaking Dawn Infatuation

Aww….the weekend is almost over!  Man, they always go by way to quickly.  I had a pretty uneventful weekend, as I’ve been totally infatuated with the Breaking Dawn movie that came out at midnight Saturday morning.  My Target, closest to me didn’t have the midnight event, so I didn’t get it then…although plans were in the works until I realized I would have to drive to a crazy Target several miles away.  Oh well…I was on the phone around midnight with my fiance who was running into Walmart to pick up some random things and he walked into the Twilight mob there, which I found amusing.  He said it was nuts…people were standing in line for Twilight cupcakes and not even grabbing the movie and going.  As for me, as soon as I woke up on Saturday, I headed to Target to snag my copy and promptly came home to watch it, but it took me all day to watch the darn movie, as I think I got about 4 phone calls over the course of the movie.  So bizarre because it was people I hadn’t heard from for awhile, so I loved all the phone calls.  I have to admit though….I’ve watched the movie three times already this weekend and have just had the intro screen of the dvd on the rest of the time just because I love the instrumental music….guess I better download the instrumental soundtrack.

I’m a little jealous of my parents this week, as they left on Saturday for San Diego, CA until Thursday.  I loved San Diego when I got to go back in 2000 for a graduation present.  It was just me & my mom, which was nice.  The plants & flowers out there are insanely gorgeous, but they are all imported from the pacific islands.  San Diego has to have one of the best zoos I’ve ever been too as well!  I remember a baby panda had just been born and we got to see it on the trip, which was pretty cool.  My sister just messaged me a few minutes ago that mom called and said she was sitting in Sea Port Village admiring the view & to make sure and rub it in….lol.  Oh well….hope they have a good time, as it’s much deserved.  Anyways, that’s about all I had to ramble about today.  Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

What’s up everybody???  Getting ready for game day?  I probably won’t watch it myself, as my 49ners didn’t make it…darn it!  I’m sure I’ll get the play by play of the game on Facebook if I really want to know the score.

Speaking of Facebook…I got super lucky the other day.  One of those right time, right place things.  One of the Facebook Fan Pages I “Like” on there called Eight Days Designs (Soon to be Rebranded) posted that she was looking for some people to practice a new style of illustration on for her portfolio.  I volunteered & she did up a cute little illustration of me.

 What do you think?  She tied in my rain cloud from my blog name and she captured me in my typical weekend winter months attire….jeans, an orange Longhorns hoodie and sandals.  I’m not sure how I’ll use the illustration yet, but I love it!  If you’re looking for someone to do an illustration for you or a blog design…Go check out Laura’s site over at Eight Days Designs!
