Fire and Ice

Ok, so apparently we all have a bit of an obsession. I would say we are all Edward freaks! There weren't alot of votes on my "Valentine" survey, but 100% would like to have Edward as their "secret valentine". I fell a little bad for Jacob, though. I am reading New Moon again, and I just have a special place in my heart for the cute little werewolf, but I completely agree with all of my friends.

Well, if you check stepheniemeyer.com daily like I do, you already know that there are big things in the works with the movie. If you don't I will tell you now that they have cast the Cullen clan! Check out the website and tell me what you think. I have the link listed in my faves. I am actually pleased with the choices. I am glad they have picked actors and actresses who are relatively unknown. It makes the characters more endearing if you haven't seen them in a bunch of other things. Anyway, just thought I would put this out there.

K, so I had to put in a plug for my friend Chelsea. She makes the cutest little hairclips, the pink one is my fave! and you can buy them at children's boutiques all over the valley, from Bountiful to Sandy (at the new shildren's store "Kinderwinkel"). You can look at the blog page , tatertothairclips.blogspot.com, and see all the different varieties that she makes and if you want a specific one, just ask. Chels is very accomodating. I just thought I would put this out there for all of my friends with baby girls, or with girls maybe on the way. I have to get my baby shopping fix somehow, since I can't do it for myself, I will live vicariously through you! Love you all, and congrats to those with special deliveries this year!
