Twilight Michelle and I started talking while in line to see Twilight the opening day. She was so fun that I asked if I could sit with her during the movie since we were both alone. As we talked we realized that we love all the same things and we really had a blast. We said goodbye at the end of the movie, but I went back to get her email address to send her something Twilight related that she wanted. And since then we have become great friends! Thank goodness for Twilight! Without it I would never have met Michelle...and I wouldn't have someone to share all my silly obsessions with.

Our cabinets are a little crazy, but we got them off of Craig's List for SUPER cheap, so they will fill the need just fine for the price!
I also have a place to hang my ironing board and step ladder!!!
This last photo has nothing to do with the Laundry Room, but I thought I should throw it in. This is Tank with his birthday gift from Zach and Amy. The reason why it is such an important picture is because Tank is actually SMILING...AND he is even looking at the camera without squinting his EYES! A rare picture, indeed!! If only I could get him to do this for group shots!!

Twilight came out today!!! I wanted to go to the midnight showing--which was supposedly sold out--but since I have little kids at home I had to make due with the first morning showing at 11 am. And I am so glad that I did. It wasn't busy at all which meant I could enjoy the show without a lot of noise. I went by myself, but quickly made a friend while waiting in line that is almost as crazy as I am about all things Twilight and so I thoroughly enjoyed sitting next to her during the show. It was fun to have someone else to drool over Edward with!!
Now onto the movie. Don't go see it if you haven't read the books. I just don't see how anyone could really enjoy it that didn't have a deeper understanding of what was going on. I give it 2 stars out of 4 for people that haven't read the book and 3 out of 4 for those that have. Not the best movie in the world...keep that in mind. But as far as feeding my Twilight Addiction...it totally filled my need. And on to the best part of the movie: ROB!!!! I had my doubts about him but he TOTALLY delivered. He IS Edward !!!!!!! I absolutely LOVE him.

So when deciding what to do for a party the theme of Indiana Jones was brought up. And Tank instantly had an idea for a party favor. Since we had taken swim noodles and cut them up to make light sabers, he thought that we should take jump ropes, cut them in half and make them into whips!! What a great idea! So here is what one looked like. I spray painted them brown and wrapped the handle in electrical tape.

I LOVE this pic of Tank reading the clue!! (the clue was taped onto the boulder)
The last clue to find the "treasure"

I love American Idol, but last year it just took on a new obsession. I have never enjoyed it quite that much and I have never had the desire to go out and buy a CD from one of the contestants. Not only that, but this year London and I loved our little Archie so much that while we were in Utah during the summer we went to the American Idol concert!
Grandma LaBounty went with us! (and so did Grandma Bobbie, Aunt Amy and Aunt Lissy!)
Mom and London excited for the show to start!
London screaming when David Archuleta came on stage!
Luckily they had big screens so that we could see his face since we were SOOO far back!
Archie at the piano!!
In this clip it keeps going out of focus because of all the lights effects they had going on. Yes, you can hear me and London screaming--embarrassing as that is, I still wanted you to get a little taste of what the concert was like. The screaming was soooo much louder in person!!
