Yes, I loved the movie! It was so good. I'm so glad that they separated the book into two movies, because this one was just about the wedding, honeymoon, and the birth of the baby. Making this book into one movie would have made everything rushed and too thin. I feel like it very closely followed the book. Not just in what happened and who said what, but it provoked the same feelings in the same places as the book did. The honeymoon part especially. It was very tastefully done, without cutting out the sex altogether. It was very much portrayed as two people deeply in love sharing a very intimate connection. I'm so glad they didn't cut it out completely or try to make it too hot-and-steamy-sex-sells-Hollywood style.
Also, the birth scene was awesome too! I usually am grossed out by blood, but I wasn't even though they made it pretty bloody. The ending was perfect too! I was wondering at what point would they end this movie, and they picked the perfect spot and it was just AWESOME.

People magizine came out with their top 10 sexiest men alive today. And I gotta say, I strongly disagree. Here is their list: (Red-I agree, Green-nah)
1. Bradley Cooper (Loved him on Alias, but not anything since)
2. Liam Hemsworth
3. Idris Elba
4. Justin Theroux
5. Chris Evans
6. Tim McGraw
7. Josh Charles (I'm pretty sure this is the hot dog guy from "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead" I just can't see him as sexy)
8. Joel McHale
9. Jason Momoa
10. Ryan Gosling
Maybe once a man is put on the list he doesn't get on it again, even though his sexiness hasn't just gone away. Anyway, here is my top 10 sexiest men (ok, 11. Why do we have to limit ourselves?) in no particular order-with the exception of Hugh Jackman who definitely tops the list!

Katie is taking the night off tonight. She went to dinner at Olive Garden--is probably eating some bread sticks dipped in alfredo sauce, some salad, and she's probably eating something with shrimp in it. Delicious.
I'd say I was jealous, but I am not. I get to hang out at home. I got to read to the boys, "The little red caboose," and I got to tell them the "Adventures of Jonah and Oliver". They went on a tricycle ride tonight. Eventually, they got to ride a bicycle but they each crashed.
The stories are supposed to be interactive. Throughout the story Jonah is asked questions about what someone said and Jonah fills in the blank. (Oliver isn't quite ready yet, but we're working on it). The first adventure of Jonah and Oliver was building a tree house. Jonah was asked multiple times who he thought could help him build the house and each time he answered someone else: Mom, Avery, Taylor, Mason, Lexington, Aunt Ruthie and even Uncle James. I tried to drop some subtle hints that would--hopefully sooner than later--indicate that Dad would love to help. It never happened.
Anyway, they're asleep now and I'm blogging. I sure hope Katie is having a nice evening away.
Oh, and did I mention that she's also seeing a 12:00 am showing of Breaking Dawn?

Thanksgiving turkeys are gobbling.
Here what they say to you: "Thanksgiving time is here.
"You better stay clear..."
But pumpkin pies are inviting--
whipping cream adorning the....all over it
Begging to be eaten first, e'en 'fore the bird's throat is slit.
Mashed potatoes are delicious.
If they're made right, that is. Butter, lots of butter and adequate salt and milk.
Eat it up, every bit--don't stop to chew.
Suck it down, lick your plate, go back for plate number two.
The feast is only a week away: practice practice practice.
Stretch your stomach this way and that--fat, fat, fat!
And don't forget to start counting blessings.
You'll likely not stop the count before you say Thanksgiving grace.
Just be thankful for what you gather, 'for that is what truly matters.

Last night I asked what I should write about and Kathryn responded. She said I should write about myself. This is a good idea, I don't write much about myself lately. I guess it's because I feel like I'm pretty uninteresting these days. I am going to put in a "self history" that I wrote this year for a family reunion. Maybe it will get my creative juices flowing and I can start thinking of stories from my life I could post here. Not that they will be too interesting, but since this blog really serves as my journal, I would like to have these recorded somewhere.
Also, If anyone wants to know anything specific about me, or my "self history" sparks any questions "Like, why did you move that time" or "what was ____like" I would love for you to ask me. Even if you think it's too personal or uncomfortable, I would love to answer.
