Knight and Day

Dont you love it when you have a deep thought during a movie? Where it just gets you thinking and it sticks with you...even when you are driving home from the theater you cant stop thinking about that one thing that impressed you during that movie. Dont be confused in thinking I like deep thought movies bc that is definately NOT the case. In fact I like the opposite. Easy to follow movies, MUST HAVE comedy, romance is always nice, and I HATE anything sad. In "Knight and Day" with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz (LOVE her!) they were having a discussion on an airplane and Cameron's character says something about how she wanted to drive down the coast all the way to the tip of South America and then she ended by saying "someday..." Tom quickly says, "Someday is a dangerous word." She looked confused and asked what he meant. He says, "When people say someday, they really mean never."

How sad is that!!! It totally got me thinking. I have so many places I want to go in life: Hawaii, Italy, Paris, African Safari, myan pyramids, Jurusalem, one of those remote islands with a bungalo over the water with a see through floor...things I want to do: Scuba Dive all around the world not just the Crator in Midway (since I am Scuba certified I really need to branch out :) Go back to school and get my masters so I can teach Sign Language at a University, sky dive, ride in a hellicopter and/or hot air balloon, see Usher LIVE in concert, see Wicked on Broadway...things I want to buy: a black baby grand player piano, a 4 door Jeep (steel grey, with a hard top that folds back, a DVD player for the kids, a sweet lift with pimped out tires) a big chunky bed frame for our King mattress that has been on our bedroom floor for 3 years, a hot tub, a cabin in Park City or somewhere with an ocean front view (either is fine :) be able to shop at Anthropologie, pay off all of my parents debt so my Dad can quit his job...
These are a lot of somedays! Does this mean none of these things will happen? Will only a handful be possible? Which ones are the most important to me? I want to make sure that my somedays ARENT nevers. What are some of your somedays that you want to make sure happen?

My Twilight background: I have never read any of the Twilight Saga books. I know...ludacris right? I hate to read! There are so many other things I enjoy more so I just get my fill from the movies I watch. Someday maybe I will change my thinking and pick up a book, but as for now Hollywood is keeping me well informed. Thank You!

First things first...Hellooooooooo Jacob!I absolutely LOVED this movie! Its so much fun going into a movie and having no clue what is going to happen. I loved that they gave some back story as to how the Cullen family became vampires. I loved the love triangle between Jacob, Bella, and Edward, I loved when Jacob had his shirt off (not bc I liked staring :) but bc I LOVED how the entire audience would scream and clap. It was hillarious!) I also loved the giggling that went on during any of the almost love scenes. Utah Movie theaters is where its at!

One of my fave characters is CHARLIE. This Dad is such a stud! He obviously adores his daughter but he is so awkward and funny about how he shows it. His one liners kill me! LOVE THEM!!!! 2 parts I thought were cool with Charlie: A boy went missing and his parents were still searching for him and it had been over a year. Bella asked, "shouldnt they just give up?" Charlie responded, "Probably...but I couldnt. If you were missing I would never give up". SOOOO CUTE!!!! The question going through my head...I wondered if I was reading the book would I have cried? Can books make you cry like movies do?
My other favorite Charlie line, after Jacob kisses Bella and Edward confronts him, all H is about to break loose. And what does Charlie do? "Wo wo wo...lets take this down a notch." haha!!! If only he realized what was really about to go down...Im still smiling thinking about it.

Now for the big decision...Jacob or Edward? From my perspective (from the movies) its obvious Jacob doesnt have a chance. Yes she loves him but the connection and love she has for Edward is WAY different. But look at Jacob...I feel so sorry for him :)
And Edward...FINALLY they can kiss now without it looking like they were going to pass out. Am I the only one who HATED that? In the first 2 movies everytime they kissed it was so awkward...I get that he had to control himself bc her blood smelled so good BUT HONESTLY...haha!

My favorite DEEP THOUGHT of the movie: Bella went to visit her Mom right before graduation bc it will be the last time she supposedly will see her. Her Mom was saying how much nicer Florida Universities would be compared to the cold bitterness in Alaska if she goes to school there. This totally got me thinking...she wouldnt be able to feel the warmth of the sun, get a sun tan, come visit her Mom, see Charlie...if Bella becomes a vampire she wont get any of that. She will just have to repeat HS over and over again. That would get old real fast.
But.......if she chooses Jacob they could grow old together, she wouldnt lose any of her friends and family, she would be warm all the time, and she could have brown babies. It just seems to be a better option :)

My absolute Favorite Scene of the movie was during the snow storm. When Bella was freezing, Edward couldnt warm her up, and Jacob had to cuddle with her the whole night. TOO FUNNY!!! I loved the conversation between Jacob and Edward it was hillarious!
Eclipse was such a great movie. LOVED IT! Since I dont read the books the first time I see it Im pretty lost, but after getting things explained to me, the second time I watch it is always my favorite. So I cant wait to go again!!! Whos with me?
