Moments from the past week

I'm back!
This past week I was working in KC from home all week.
It was magnificent, and I stepped away from the online word almost entirely to spend time with the husband.
  We saw some great movies at the theater. Sunday night has kind of become our unofficial date night, and we spend it going to dinner together and catching a flick. It is Officially Summer Movie Season! Last weekend we saw The Hangover II, and this weekend... X-Men First Class! Two VERY different movies, but two really great ones as well!
January Jones as Emma Frost.... Talk about reason to work out!
  We watched a lot of movies at home too! The Town (2 stars....not very great at all... The premise was good, the acting and script were AWFUL), Avatar (4 stars...We liked it, but it was kind of a grown-up version of FernGully), No Strings Attached (5 stars and SUPER cute), Salt (5 stars! Great movie!) and The Sorcerer's Apprentice (4 stars. Pretty cute!)
  On Friday we went out an bought a new camera. Our old one ended up breaking, and I like to have just a little point and shoot for going out. (Instead of hauling my DSLR around). We had to empty the battery life on it so we could condition it, so we took lots of photos of the dogs to play around with all it has to offer!

 My sweet little models :)

  I also did a lot of relaxing and reading this past week. I finished up the Dragongirl Tattoo series, and started on the Sookie Stackhouse series. It's the books that True Blood were based off of, and now i'm very curious to watch the tv show! I'm on the second book in the series right now. Most of the time I read outside, and work on my tan while doing it. So it's been nice to get a little bit darker. :)
  I ended up purchasing a few more of the items that have been sitting in my Etsy favorites cart for quite some time. Favorites that I know I would HATE if they disappeared and ran out of stock on them! I can't wait for them both to come in the mail soon!

This is a big week. Tomorrow morning I head out to St. Louis for 4 days for work, and today is my first day back at Grad School! I am taking an online course about Social Media, and i'm so excited to get done with school! To graduate I have to complete 12 classes, and this is my 7th! So only 5 more to go after this! Social Media should be a fun class, and I hope to find out some great new tools that I can pass along to my company to use! And I LOVE that I can take the class online!!! The rest of today is going to be dedicated to getting laundry done, packing my bags, printing out paperwork and getting ready to leave in the morning. Although, I do think ill take a break in a bit, get some reading done and enjoy some coffee I have placed in the fridge that is getting ice cold! I hope everyone has a great week!!!! It's nice to be back :)

Is it completely embarrasing that I cried so much during No Strings Attached? In a happy way though...
I absolutely loved that movie!
