race-for-the-cure

Saturday, May 9th marks the 13th annual Race for the Cure in Salt Lake City, UT!  I participated in the race last year and had a blast with the girls in the name of a terrific cause.  Wouldn’t it be fun to get a bunch of girlfriends together and walk for the cure?

The details:

Let me know if you’re interested, we could carpool or meet up together and have a grand old time!

Stephenie Meyer is Following Me on Twitter! April 24, 2009

twilight-by-stephenie-meyerI admit.  I’m a grown, married woman who loves Edward Cullen.  Though I adamantly resisted the Twilight lure as long as I could, after seeing Twilight opening day, I could resist no longer.  It didn’t take long before I was hooked.  In a matter of weeks, I read through the entire Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.  She has an incredible way of captivating her readers, young and otherwise, and keep us wanting more.  I’m still looking for a series that will enthrall me the way Twilight did.

So it was an absolute thrill when @Stephenie_Meyer began following me on Twitter today!  Of course, I followed her first for follow Friday, but still!  How cool is that!

So girls, if you’re on Twitter, be sure to look her up!  And if you’re not, get on Twitter!  (Sidebar: Some of you may be wondering, what is Twitter?  It’s a lot like a Facebook status update where you answer the question, “What are you doing?” and subsequently interact with others)  You’ll be surprised to note the number of followers: 910 Following 802 Followers That’s all!  She really makes an effort to interact with your fans.

Alright, class!  That’s your homework.  Follow @Stephenie_Meyer, the mind behind it all.

Twilight Filming Wraps in Vancouver April 22, 2009

The new Twilight film, New Moon, has been filming in Vancouver, Canada, my hometown!  My little sister Saundra even saw them filming at her school while it was in session.  How cool is that?

Update: My cousin Miranda who runs Style by Fire actually bumped into Robert Pattison at a fashion show and he wished her happy birthday!  Lucky, lucky girl 🙂

Here’s some fun Edward and Bella eye candy care of Bauer Griffin Online. They have some great photos of the Twilight cast in and around town — check it out!

That Took Guts, Miss California

You may have heard about the ruckus that Miss California, Carrie Prejean, stirred up in the Miss USA pageant this weekend.  When asked by Miss USA judge Perez Hilton about her stance on gay marriage, Prejean replied, “In my country, and in my family, I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.”  Perez Hilton’s response?  “…she gave the worst answer in pageant history.”  Miss California was the first Miss USA contestant to ever be booed during the question-and-answer period.

Though Miss North Carolina, Kristen Dalton, won Miss USA, first runner up Miss California has gotten far more media coverage because her controversial answer.  Even so, Prejean feels like it cost her the crown.

That took guts, Miss California, to stay true to your beliefs and say the unpopular thing in a nationwide competition.  I applaud your courage.
