The Last Kiss * Although most people who know me would be absolutely shocked (and maybe appalled?) that i loved this movie. It totally diverts from my outward appearances/beliefs that i watched this movie... and heaven forbid it, actually love this movie. You know, the try to do right Mormon girl who's only lived in Utah her whole life (BTW - i really hate being classified as that. Anyone outside of Utah finds out I'm a "Utah Mormon" and automatically I'm one of those polygamist sister wives that have 27 children. COME ON! Really! All i am is a girl who really only wants to find herself. I just so happened to grow up with a LDS mother with LDS beleifs and a father who said never to bring it home. Granted, i didn't grow up in a typical Mormon home, but the basic values were there and that was how i was raised). But you know what, i totally get it. I totally got that movie. I completely felt it. I loved it so much. OK - i could have really done without the girl on girl action in the beginning though (do guys really like that? BARF!). It's got a GREAT moral to the story (minus the girl-on-girl) and in so many ways i can relate to it. Who wants a life where there are no more surprises? In all reality, that in itself is pretty scary.

Stars * i gazed out my door last night at about 2:30am after getting up with Sam. I was in complete awe over how beautiful it was out there. Not a cloud in the sky and all i could see was the bright stars. I could get lost in a night like that. Too bad i was completely wiped out, physically and emotionally, to stay up and take it all in.

Sam Smiles * his smile truely lights up a room. Even in the darkest, saddest times you can't help but to smile back at him. And even better, he smiles ALL the time.
