What's Been Happenin'

My life hasn't been too interesting lately, just relaxing and enjoying things as they come. With Trevor being gone (living in Tulsa) I have found other things to occupy my time. For starters, I read The Help.

It was such a great book! There wasn't a lot of action, but I loved how every few chapters a new character was speaking, so you got to read several view points over the same issue. I also went and saw the movie with some friends. I always like to think of books and movies as different entities when reading and watching. I'm never happy with the movie if I don't think of it like this, because movies are so much less detailed and it makes me think they are lacking in something. So I always just think of them as two different stories. With this book/movie, there were things I liked about the book better than the movie and there were other things I liked about the movie better than the book. So I was pleased with both.

Awhile back I started watching Friday Nights Lights.

More than one person recommended this TV show to me, so I thought I would give it a chance. Well again, since the hubby has been away, I got a chance to finish all the seasons! I absolutely LOVE this show and highly recommend it! I honestly think it is my favorite TV show now...I'm just sad that it won't be returning. I was reading about it and I guess someone wrote a book about someones life, then made the movie, then the TV series, and now I think they are making another movie. I haven't even seen the first Friday Night Lights movie, so I guess I need to catch up.

I have now started reading The Hunger Games
I am only about half way through and I am addicted! It is hard to put down once you start reading it. My friend Andrea and I are reading it at the same time, so we get to talk about it in the evenings which makes it even more fun! We call it our unofficial book club! ;) We need to come up with a good name for our "unofficial book club."

I also have had plenty of time for friends...last night we went to a nice steakhouse here called Level 2.
It's restaurant month here and with that you can order a 3 course meal for $20. I was so full by the end of my meal I had to take my delicious cheesecake home...which I ate this evening! ;)

Lastly...I get to see my husband in 2 days and we will be together for 10 days!!! Can't get any better than that!!! ;)

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!!
