First of all, thank you all for your VERY sweet comments on my post yesterday. They really meant a lot to me. I appreciate all you blogging friends and your kind words 🙂 If I’ve not replied to your email, I will. Or if you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
I didn’t do much last night. Husband came home from work and snuggled for a while. He then skipped working out and picked me up dinner. I got the Queensland Chicken Salad from Outback. It is delish. I laid in bed and watched movies. About 9, he headed out to the Golf Club. Our friend’s wedding is there this weekend. He is golfing very early this morning so he decided just to stay the night in the cottage with the guys.
Have any of you ever seen the movie Chasing Amy? I like it. It is quite vulgar but I don’t mind. I didn’t mind the first time I watched it either. I think I watched it when I was in 8th grade. That seems to have maybe been a bit young now, haha. It has a LOT to do with sexuality. If you don’t care for that, then don’t watch it. It isn’t something I necessarily look for in a movie but I just liked the story. Kevin Smith created the movie. It does have Jay and Silent Bob in it. Ben Affleck & Joey Lauren Adams played the main characters. I absolutely loved the little speech Ben Alleck’s character gave to confess his love to Joey Lauren Adams.
Alyssa: Why are we stopping?
Holden: ‘Cause I can’t take this.
Alyssa: Can’t take what?
Holden: I love you.
Alyssa: You love me?
Holden: I love you. And not, not in a friendly way, although I think we’re great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I’m sure that’s what you’ll call it. I love you. Very, very simple, very truly. You are the-the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being. And I know that you think of me as just a friend, and crossing that line is-is-is the furthest thing from an option you would ever consider. But I had to say it. I just, I can’t take this anymore. I can’t stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can’t-I can’t look into your eyes without feeling that-that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can’t talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are. And I know this will probably queer our friendship – no pun intended – but I had to say it, ’cause I’ve never felt this way before, and I-I don’t care. I like who I am because of it. And if bringing this to light means we can’t hang out anymore, then that hurts me. But God, I just, I couldn’t allow another day to go by without just getting it out there, regardless of the outcome, which by the look on your face is to be the inevitable shoot-down. And, you know, I’ll accept that. But I know, I know that some part of you is hesitating for a moment, and if there’s a moment of hesitation, then that means you feel something too. And all I ask, please, is that you just – you just not dismiss that, and try to dwell in it for just ten seconds. Alyssa, there isn’t another soul on this f*ck*ng planet who has ever made me half the person I am when I’m with you, and I would risk this friendship for the chance to take it to the next plateau. Because it is there between you and me. You can’t deny that. Even if, you know, even if we never talk again after tonight, please know that I am forever changed because of who you are and what you’ve meant to me, which – while I do appreciate it – I’d never need a painting of birds bought at a diner to remind me of.
If you want to watch the actually scene from the movie, you can click here. At first, it upset me that the video ended before the girl (named Alyssa in the movie) came running back to Holden (Ben Allfeck) but then again, they don’t end up together so I figured it doesn’t matter.
I remember in 2004 when Garden State came out. It was kind of an odd movie but I really liked it. It makes me really reflect back to that time in my life. I think all music does that really. I think the songs in this moving are amazing therefore the soundtrack is phenomenal! I LOVE IT SO. I listened to it on repeat for many months! You can click here to hear previews of each song. The link furtherest to the right of each song should work. If you don’t have these songs, get them.

I love those movies…I also watched some of Selena, Made of Honor & The Perfect Holiday. I just didn’t catch them beginning to end! I’ve seen Selena and Made of Honor though…like them.
I also wanted to take this time to mention some birthdays….the pics are only a few of the hundreds over the past few years. Some day I’ll post some high school and befores 🙂
Today is my BFF Allison’s Birthday!!
Allison and I became friends in the 1st/2nd grade. We fought over one another between our friend Tiffany for a few months though, haha. We use to stay the WHOLE weekend with each other and we only lived a few miles away. We use to have races to see who could write words the fastest. We use to go to Claire’s Boutique and buy as many things as we could with 5 bucks. She was the first person I ever lived with when I moved away from home. We lived in the dorm our freshman year together. I love shuggie!!!!
Also, I did not mention another BF’s birthday on March 13th. I blogged from my iphone that day and that alone took me about 15 minutes for a few sentences. Plus, I had no pictures to share. My friend Katie turned 25 on the 13th! Luckily, I was able to spend time with her and her cute pregnant belly just days before! I am so excited she is expecting her first. I first remember Katie when her parents you to come over to hang out with mine. We would play dress up with Missy Blue. We have shared many many fun times together and I love her. I need to be better about going to visit her which is ONLY about an hour and a half away! I’m glad she is an Okie with me..for now anyways 🙂 ( I can only hope forever!!)
I am feeling pretty good this morning! It is a beautiful day here although a bit chilly! As long as the sun is shinning I do not mind. Tonight we are going to dinner with a group of friends. I know at least I am. We will see if Brent is too tired after he gets in from golfing since 6am this morning! He did text me at 2am last night as well. Assuming I’d be awake…I was :/ He told me he wished me and the dog were there to snuggle him and that he loved us! sweet. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
