My Thoughts On...

The hubby & I went to see Insurgent on opening night - Friday.  I will start off with the fact that I read this book about a year ago but there are just some things that stuck with me from the book that didn't make it in the movie like the fact that Tris had a very difficult time handling guns after she shot & killed Will but they just showed her jumping right in.  I feel that in the book, they made her more human rather than a robot.  I liked the movie but it wasn't as good as Divergent or anything close to The Hunger Games series.

However, I still love my girl, Shailene.  I think that she is so stinkin' adorable.

Plus, who wouldn't want to stare at Four aka Tobias aka Theo on the big screen for a couple of hours?!  I know that I thoroughly enjoyed that.  

Insurgent's Grade:


  1. I read Divergent because of the craze surrounding it. I'm not really into YA Dystopia books, but I get why it's interesting to a lot of people. My take on Divergent was I'm looking forward to the movie. Then, I didn't see the movie. Ha! I want to, I need to...then, I can see this.

    1. I'm a big geek that way, I love the YA novels. I do love "big girl" books too but the hype of the YA books is so crazy sometimes that I just have to be apart of it. Ha, ha!

  2. Yeahhhhhh this movie was so so different than the book. The ending the woman didn't even say her name so that Tris knew she was related... that part of the book like SHOCKED ME and had me freaking out when I read it so how in the world did they not inlcude it? I really really hated her hair and the 3d made me so sick so I was pretty distracted by those things honestly. Four was sooo sexy, more sexy than the first movie. I don't know, it was just really different then the book and so I was even confused sometimes because of it. I hated that they didn't show she was immune to the truth serum. At least this time they showed her brother as the asshole he really is, unlike the 1st movie where they made him seem better than he was haha. It felt like they were really wrapping up the end of this movie in order to NOT make another one.

    1. Thank you! I thought I was going a little crazy cuz I too was confused by the movie. & I too thought about them not releasing the name of the "video lady" to tell everyone that Tris & her were related. There was just so much & I'm just letting everything sink in before I see it again. I typically like the movies based on books I've read better the second time around.

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
