It is.... FRIDAY!

It is finally here if your a fan of Twilight & the series you know how long you have been waiting for today! I am going tonight with my friend Natalie at 7:20 to the Moore Warren and I am so excited~~~ This weekend also holds alot of fun stuff tomorrow my sister Marissa is in the Westmoore Musical so we will be going to CHEER her cute little self on! I am sure I will post some pictures on Monday! And tomorrow we are also going to start the Christmas cheer... we are going to decorate the tree and all the fun stuff that goes with~~so this way we will not have to worry about setting things up the day after Thanksgiving! We have our fingers crossed that Oscar & Ralph will not take a big interest in the tree but considering we hang "shiny balls" from the tree I think it may drive Ralphie wild. So trying to plan ahead we went and bought all new ornaments that claim to be "Shatter Proof" so time will tell!!!
Happy Friday and stay warm!!

Weekend Wrap- Up....

Despite me having a cold all weekend Matt and I managed to find time for a wonderful weekend and here is the "Wrap Up"....
Friday night we went to the Moore Warren to see James Bond; So good! The movie is action packed fun and we give it two thumbs up! But what was even more fun was enjoying the movie in our Balcony seats! You have to buy the tickets ahead of time and when you buy them you
choose your seat as it is reserved seating and well worth the extra ticket price for a every now and then fun! The seats are like recliners and each seat had it's owe heating button which I put to good use and the view of the screen is awesome! Matt and I munched on pizza and a brownie fudge sundae during the movie and had a wonderful time!!!
Saturday we decided to get a head start on Christmas so we headed out in search of new "Dog Proof" ornaments and more outdoor decor! We found someone wonderful stuff and Matt was so excited that he jumped right on putting up the lights outside, so once Thanksgiving rolls around we are ready to flip the switch! Saturday night we celebrated a Surprise 30th Birthday for our Friend Melissa Wiley in Norman and finished off the weekend with some house cleaning and grocery shopping on Sunday!

Now........ for another Easy & Yummy Sunday night Dish........ ( I do cook more than only Sundays, Ha)

Moore Warren

The new Moore Warren is wonderful and not just because it is less than 5min from our house! You all must check it out it is very classic and modern at the same time! This Friday I am very excited because Matt and I have tickets to see the new James Bond in the Balcony. That was 1 of my anniversary gifts; a gift certificate to have dinner and watch a movie in the balcony. ( The traditional first year gift is paper) The balcony seats are large and they serve drinks and dinner during the movie. We figured James Bond seemed like the perfect movie to give it a whirl!
I also attached the trailer to the new bond film! Enjoy...

You will notice I post alot about movies, I LOVE movies maybe it is how during those 2 hours you can be somewhere else or travel to a world you may never see? Whatever the reason I love movies and I love the feeling of knowing a great one is coming out and having that to look forward to. It seems that this Holiday season is going to be filled with movies I can not wait to see and share with my friends and family.
I was watching Oprah last night and she had on Hugh Jackman & Nicole Kidman and they were talking about their new film; Australia... and the way Oprah and the two of them described it plus the behind the scene video's she showed just thrilled me. This is an epic movie.. a drama, action and love story all rolled into one. The movie itself looks stunning and real portrayal of the beauty that is Australia and I can not wait to be transported. The movie opens Thanksgiving weekend Nov 26. And below I posted one of the trailers for you to enjoy, but if you go to or you can get behind the scene info and and videos. Enjoy.....

Counting Down the Days.........


One of the BEST books I have read by Stephenie Meyers. The entire series is wonderful and is not at all for young readers only! Me, my friends and so many more people have formed quite a following! The movie comes out on Nov 21 and me and my girlfriends are going to have a watch party! I have not been this excited for a movie since Sex & The City! I HIGHLY recommend this series Twilight, Eclipse, New Moon & Breaking Dawn!! Watch the Trailer below!!!
