Seeing Double

Happy Sunday all! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Yesterday I went down to San Clemente to hang out with my sister and my cousin Allie. Allie just had the cutest baby boy Camden. He is such a good baby, he hardly cries of fusses. Here are some of the pics that I took.

Denielle taking a ride with Alexa in her Barbie car.

Alexa playing with baby Camden.

Allie and her new son, he is sooo cute.

My Mom said that this picture looked like two Denielle's and one Brianna. I swear Allie and Denielle look more like sisters than Denielle and I do.

Trying to be artsy w/ the camera.

Me and my Denielle

I love those self portraits.

Have a happy rest of the weekend.

Book Whore.

I have to admit I am a huge book whore. I love, love love reading....sometimes a bit much. I have been known to ditch friends, family, hubby and maybe sometimes work in favor of of reading. I sometime wonder what you non readers do with your time. Oh wait, you must have lives. I was cleaning my car last weekend when I noticed that I had 5 books in my car! 5, what do I need 5 books in my car for. Heaven forbid I go a minute without getting to read something.

Since I am such a book whore, you can image how overjoyed I was to get the Sookie Stackhouse book set for Christmas...THANKS DAN! For those of you who have been living under a rock, these are the books that inspired the sinfully delightful HBO series True Blood. I just love me some good Vampire entertainment. I was dying for a replacement series since I finished Twilight (sigh).

The books follow a young cocktail Waitress who is telepathic. The world is not just full of Vampires (who just came out of the coffin) but Shifters, faeries and all kinds of other supernatural creatures (or Supes if you are in the know).

I would totally recommend these to anyone who likes the show, or who just enjoys a good read.


BTW: Eric = Yuuuumy!

I'm a 13 Year Old Girl

Yeah, the title says it all. I'm hopelessly obessed with; Twilight, Paramore and Rockband. Not sure if I will ever grow up. *Siiiigh* Just thought everyone should know.


Man, another year! I was so stressed about having xmas over at my place that I didn't even have time to be depressed about it being another year. Typically I get a little maudlin around this time of year. Something about the time passing, getting older, blah blah... Alright, enough of that crap!

New Years Eve was really nice, besides the fact that I had to work late ! While everyone else was rushing the door at 4:00, I was glued to my seat wondering when I would get to leave.

Mr.BriannaNichole (wow that sounds totally lame), correction my hubby and I went down to my parents for some family fun time. We brought RockBand, my latest obsession, thinking that my sister and BIL would be the only ones to play it. To my shock my Mom and Dad got down! I feel compelled to mention that neither of my parents have ever played a musical instrument. To see them playing together (guitar and bass) and my sister rocking out vocals was awesome. My hubby assures me that he (on guitar), my dad (on bass) and my mom (vocals) killed (in a good way) Carry on My Wayward Son. Hmmmm methinks I will have to download some more classic rock songs for them.

I don't usually stick to New Years Resolutions...maybe I will be better this year.

1. Lose Weight...please see last blog entry (BTW I am eating a bagel right now, great start eh?)

2. Be better at cleaning the house.

3. Get on a budget and stick to it.

4. Be more responsible.

5. Blog more, at least once a month.

6. Start going back to church.

7. Get better at rockband...just kidding although this is probably the only one I will stick to ;)

8. Be a better wife (see #2, #3 & #4, #9).

9. Start meal planning and cooking.

There are probably some more stuff I could work on but this should do for now.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy new year,
