Another Addiction: So You Think You Can Dance

So I thought it was time for me to fess up to another addiction I have right now: So You Think You Can Dance! I got hooked on it last year when staying with Candice over the summer and this year is so good!

My favorites are:


Chelsea and Mark

and Joshua and Katee

I think my lure to the show is that... I can't dance at all. So it's nice to see that some people have talent :) I like to see how versatile all of these people are. It's an awesome show :) This dance by Chelsea and Mark was my favorite from tonight's show but Twitch and Kherington and Joshua and Katee did awesome too.

Anyways... that's just the latest in my favs... check back to see what I'm into after these obsessions fade out :)

Hi. My name is Rachel. I've been addicted for a little over six months now. My addiction is... (conflicted hesitation) ...the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer. I'm an official Twilighter. If anyone else wants to get their Twilight addiction out now, this is a safe space :)

Around New Years this year, my dad peeked into Jana's room and found both Jana and I engulfed in black hardcover novels. Several days later we could be found in the same place until we'd both completed Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse. These novels are amazing! If you haven't read them by now, with all the hype that you've undoubtedly already heard, seriously... Read them!

I've been re-reading these books this week, which I never do (because once I know a story it is sort of difficult for me to re-read it) but it's pulled me back into my hardcore addiction. I'm trying to be patient while waiting for Breaking Dawn to be released on August 2nd but it is very difficult. :) I am also very excited about the December 12th release of the film Twilight.
Here is a link to the preview of Twilight the movie!

In honor of this blog and the connected addiction, I've posted a poll on my blog regarding who Bella Swan should end up with in the final book... The warm-hearted Jacob Black or the classic romantic Edward Cullen. I'm not going to lie... to me it seems SO clear! EDWARD! I've heard some other points of view recently though and am curious to see what everyone thinks! Okay, I think I'm done rambling about my addiction... I just wanted to get that out there!

May I also suggest The Host by Stephenie Meyer? It was really good as well. :)

Here is a link to Stephenie Meyer's website

Thanks for listening to my ramblings! :)

PS. I heart Edward.

Okay, I'm really done now :)

Well, Since it's been a week since we went there, I thought I should probably blog about Lagoon! It was so much fun! I kind of took it easy this time, only going on a few really adventurous rides and mostly sticking around Tara, Candice, and the kids. Jana and I also took Jayden, Carter, and Lydia on a few of the non-kiddie rides that weren't too intense. We took Lydia on the Tilt-o-Whirl (resembles the tea-cups at Disneyland) and while Jana and I were laughing our heads off (because it was a particularly spinny ride that time), she was freaking out a little... She didn't go on that one again. She did love the Space Scrambler though, so we took her and the boys on that one a lot. They liked a lot of the kiddie rides as well. Carter and I went together on the OdySea (A new water-ish ride where little dolphins and whales squirt you) and got really wet because Carter liked it when we stayed low (underneath all of the sprayers). It was funny. As ever, the Rattlesnake Rapids ride was my favorite and we went on it a few times and got really wet! :) Anyways, the weather was nice (as my minor sunburn reflects) and we had a lot of was a really great day!

PS: None of the Pictures Really Coincide with what I said in the above descriptions of the day, so I'm just going to post them all at the bottom. They're all of Carter, Lydia, and Jayden (accompanied occasionally by Randall, Jay and Jana) on the kiddie rides and then Randall and Jay's
catapult into the sky!
