It's a lot like Mayberry, but without that catchy theme song to whistle in my head.

I'm a nerd. For so many reasons, but #465 is my love of Archie Comic books. I have been reading them since...well, since I learned how to read. I have copies of comics from the 1950's all the way up to the issues that are out at Publix today! It's a guilty pleasure, one that I have no intention of giving up anytime soon. They may not be as cool as Spider-man or Batman, but they make me happy.

While I was reading CNN this morning, I came across this article. I was surprised, because usually Archie doesn't make headlines - I think it's because he's not real, but that's just a guess... :) - and it said that he is finally getting married and he's going to propose to Veronica!!! BOO!!!!! Ever since my first issue, I thought that Archie would end up with Betty, and to learn otherwise is devastating! I went to the Archie Blog (I'm super passionate about this...and may regret blogging about it after it's posted, but whatever...we all have our things!) And it looks like it's true...He is going to ask Veronica. Let's hope something happens in the next 6 issues that make him change his mind!!! I guess I won't know more until it hits newsstands on September 8, 2009.

This news takes away from my original post, about how overrated I think Rob Pattinson is. I mean seriously....did you see Twilight?! Worst movie ever (the books were good, I loved them)...yet somehow America overlooked the suckiness of that movie and catapulted him to fame. I'm not saying I don't like him - he's charming, handsome and has a lot of potiental....but Twilight is not a good reason to get all this attention. I thought he was great in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Good looks will get you anywhere, I guess. He's freaking everywhere!!! Ok, I'm ready...beat me up for that.

Ohhh, Harry Potter. I can't wait for The Half Blood Prince to be out - reason #25 that I am nerd.

I dream of dusty roads, paved with gold that lead me in your eyes...

So, we are officially horrible bloggers. I blamed part of it on the fact that I didn't have a working camera, so I wasn't able to document all the things we have done...but then I got a working camera and nothing changed. So...that just confirms my theory - we are horrible bloggers. I used to be much better at it, but I lost my drive along the way. I am trying to get it back though. We will see how I do.

The last few months have been crazy busy, but they have been really good. We have slowly been getting the house all put together and making changes that make it feel more like our home. So, you know, that's a good thing. Plus, there are a lot more things we want to do, and I'm really excited about some of them. I really should be taking before and after pictures....but....I'm really bad at remembering to do that. I do have pictures of our garden that Jacob has started, and so far it's looking really good! Jacob is doing a great job with it. I can't wait until the stuff is ready to be picked. Now I need to remember to upload the pictures :)

Last week we went to see Death Cab for Cutie and it was awesome!! I love Death Cab. They played at the Fox and we went the Heather, Ry and Clint. Good show and good people - does it get any better than that?! I thinkest not. I love going to concerts. This summer there are some good ones coming to Atlanta, but I'm not sure how many I will get to go to. Apparently I'm at that stage in life where paying bills and mortgages are more important than going to shows. We will see how long that lasts for...

I am sad that this season of Biggest Loser is over. I love that show, and now I have to wait until next fall to see another season. I really wish Tara had won, but she looked so stinking beautiful and happy and AWESOME, that I am not sure she cared. She has inspired me on many levels! However, on an up side, So You Think You Can Dance starts next week, and that show makes me happy.

Ok, I'm done rambling....for now.
