feelin' groovy!

so i gave in to peer pressure and started reading the twilight series by stephenie meyer. everyone has been going crazy about these books, and i didn't want to miss out. i'll be honest, i'm not a big reader. i think the last book i read out of mere pleasure (other than pregnancy and parenting books) was of mice and men. that's pretty bad, huh? but this book is awesome. it just makes me feel good. it gives me butterflies, and i catch myself fantasizing about different scenarios. it's great. all my girls are swooning over one of the main characters, edward. we all want to talk about it, but can't yet till everyone finishes reading each book because nobody wants to give anything away. the night of that book club is going to be a MUST!
furthermore, since i started reading this book, i have just been in the best mood. today, i went to a birthday party with the girls in tow, came home, and then read a couple of chapters while they napped. i started feeling all romantical so i made hubby and i a wonderful dinner that i use to make all the time, but haven't since we became parents. the preparation of it all takes a lot of time and i'm usually unmotivated. but not today. it was done by the time he walked through the door, and i could tell he was surprised. after dinner i read a bit more, got that natural high, and began scrapbooking while jay and the girls watched finding nemo. now the house is quiet, and i'm about to cuddle up to my new favorite book. (sigh) just that thought makes me break out into song...

Slow down, you move too fast
You've got to make the morning last
Just kickin' down the cobble stones
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy!
