DVR=Worlds Greatest Invention

Well I feel like i have been a total slacker in the blogging department.
Here a little catching up...A few weekends ago the Anderson family went to Calico Ghost Town. I had never been, so it was an interesting trip! I though it was going to be a little more "abandoned" and not so commercialized, but there were some totally cool things. Like a house that is built on a hill at an angle (which I totally got dizzy in the moment I walked through the door!!) Oh, and Dave mooned Leslie while she took pictures of him behind the outhouse. haha. It was hilarious (and inappropriate) but really funny. Although now it's all over her facebook. lol.

On another note, this season is the season of TV for Dave and I. We have SO many shows we DVR and then try to fit in when we get home every evening!

Sunday: Extreme Home Makeover

Monday: 24 (Dave), The Bachelor, True Beauty

Tuesday: The Real Housewives of OC, American Idol and The Biggest Looser!

Wednesday: American Idol

Thursday: The Office

Kinda embarrassing! But I'm guessing some of you might be in the same boat?!

Life of a bookworm

It seems like I've been more into reading than blogging lately. It all started at Christmas, when i was given a handful of books to read, all of which were highly recommended. Per Katie's advice, i was told to read The Secret Life of Bees before These Is My Words, because These Is My Words is SO good that anything coming after it might seem like a letdown. Katie was right. The Secret Life of Bees was really good. These Is My Words was AMAZING. I fell in love with the characters and had a good cry this afternoon as I finished it. Next is the Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt. Then I'll probably swith it up with a girly non-thinker about shopping and such. As for now, I suddenly feel like i want to
A) start a journal, and
B) start a book club.
Other than books, life is cruising along just fine. Work was hectic and stressful this week, with late hours and getting used to being back from break. I'm crossing my fingers for a smooth Monday. Dave is working hard and was such an awesome husband this week!...(not that he isn't always great, but sometimes the little things make all the difference.) He accompanied me on a long Target run for work one evening, without complaining until I was almost done. He was totally cool when I went to Whittier for a girls night, and another night had BBQ-d steaks ready for dinner when I got home late!
Not that I don't like blogging, but there's a comfy couch and a good book waiting in the other room. Maybe next time i'll have some pictures.
