I'm Only Slightly Embarassed to Admit that I Love Twilight

So, I'm not the biggest fan in the world, but I have read all four books (plus The Host), and I did kinda sorta really like the movie (and Edward). I did not host or attend a Twilight party, but, if I had, it would have definitely included this stuff:

From Hostess with the Mostess

From Maggie's Dinner Dates

I Love Spring

Oh, how I love not having to scrape my windows in the morning;

And not having to fix my mascara in the rear-view mirror on the way to work because the frigid temperatures made my eyes run;

And watching my pretty little tulips fight their way through the cold, hard ground;

And the smell, the glorious smell of spring...

Also, did I mention how much I will love it when my gas bill drops back down into the double digits???

Though I haven't been modeling my life jacket in front of the mirror yet, I do admit that I have pulled the white pants out of the back of the closet and put them on the short-list.

And I've hung the new swimsuit up in plain view for a little visual motivation.

Summer, here I come!

In the meantime, look at all the pretty spring things I've found:

Valerie Loves Dora

On Saturday, Danny and I endured crowds of wailing children and unruly strollers to take Valerie to see Dora and Boots at the Boise Kids' Fair. Only the wonder in her eyes kept me from turning to flee once I saw how long the line was. No, seriously.

It was, of course, all worth it in the end. Her excitement was enough to break your heart. I wish I'd caught it on video.
