Movie Reviews and Awards

Okay everyone, I saw "Alice in Wonderland" last night!    

My review:

BRILLIANT.  Go see it right now, tonight.  I absolutely loved it!   
It was so well done.  All of the actors did such a marvelous job and the Tim Burton's depiction of "Wonderland" is just amazing.   It's a little dark for small children, but if they are a little bit older I think they'd really enjoy it.  Definitely a movie you can go to without children and really enjoy.

I also saw "Remember Me" on Friday.

My review:

I loved it!   I would definitely recommend you to see it.   It's a wonderful drama about two people from troubled families, coming together to find happiness.   The ending is definitely a total shocker...but I can't tell you anymore or it gives it away... just be prepared!

Also I would like to FINALLY take the time to say a BIG Thank You for all of the awards you all have sent my way!   I love them and am so humbled by the fact that so many people are reading my blog!
Getting awards is so awesome, but I know sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming to pass them all along... so if I'm giving you one, pass it along if you want, but you don't have to!   Just enjoy it!

Here they are:

Thanks to Just Thinkin' for the Sunshine Award!

I'm passing it along to a few bloggers that bring sunshine to my day:

Handprints of the Heart: Go visit her, her posts will make you smile!
Just a Night Owl: Such a cute blog!
The Scoop on  Poop: Cause she is too funny!

Thanks so much to Married to a Medical Student for this one:

"This award means you're really going places, Baby. You'll still be blogging about your great adventures 10 years from now, and I'll still be reading them."

Aw thanks so much!   Now I'm supposed to tell you where I'd like to be 10 years from now:

Hmm... in 10 years I'll be 36 years old...gulp.    By then I would love to have 2 children, hopefully a boy and a girl...haha.... hey it's my dream!    Also I would like to have made it to the top of my company, which means I'll be making great money while working part time and driving a mercedez.  ; )
But most of all, in 10 years I'd like for me and my family to be happy, healthy, and serving God. That's all that matters to me!

Here are some bloggers that I think are really going places:

Musings of Amber Murphy : Check her out, she's hilarious.  
A Blonde Walks into a Blog: That girl is going places!
De Tinta y Papel: She's so creative!!!!

Thanks Hope Chella for my happy award!

Here are 10 Things that make me happy:

1. Make Up!
2.  MUSIC... especially on a sunny day.
3.  My dog Yoda
4.  My family
5.  Nachos from QDoba or Moes...yum!
6.  Panera  (can you tell I'm hungry?)
7.  Getting a card in the mail
8.  When a friend calls just to talk
9.  Vacations!
10.  Reading

Okay, here are some blogs that make me happy:
