I haven't been able to sleep very well for a couple days..buut..it has given me the opportunity to watch some pretty awesome flicks.
Picture
Crazy Love. The ups...and very downs of a relationship. It's pretty twisted. I really loved how the trailer did not spoil any of the outrageous surprises:
You definitely need to watch it! The ending is unexpected, and leaves you thinking with a million Pros and Cons of love.

And if you feel like crying like a baby:
Picture
Dear Zachary.  I watched this movie last night...and I basically cried all night. I experienced every emotion possible during this flick. So incredible.

If you didn't already know, I love me some documentaries.
Documentaries and Chick Flicks..weird combo huh?
I hope you at least watch one!
Have a great Thursday!

Aubree xxo.
 
Of lately:
I finally have my craft area organized...I have mixed emotions about it though.
I am really awesome at controlled chaos, and having things in order sometimes stresses me out, weird?- yeah, totally.
It's a good change though. Chance was nice enough to build me a shelf for the area...and in the process I think he found a love. Carpentry! I promised him I would post pictures up soon...so that will happen!
I went to an Abandon Kansas show last night, it was super good!
They're really awesome live.
I'm super tired today, since I had an insomnia hiccup last night. :(
Buuut the day must go on lovlies!
Have a super Wednesday!

I really love Never Shout Never..such cute lyrics and fun melodies...
If you watched the second video then you know that the new album, 'What is Love?' comes out tomorrow!  I'll have to find some time in my day to go snag it!
I just adore his music! (plus he is a total cutie)

First off, tell a little about yourself:
I am an old lady, but have a young heart.  My family comes first, always. I love being a mommy to my children and grandma to my grandchildren!

 I love hugging and talking.  I think that is about it.

 How did you choose their names?
  Lars is named after a great grandfather..

Andres was somewhat named after a distant relative on my Mother's side of the family.

Aubree was named after a cheerleader I made a uniform for.
Picture
Last but not least, we're Norwegian...and Hannah was a Norwegian name we liked.

What is the most rewarding part of being a mom?
  Hugs and talking. 

Would you go back and change anything?
 always spending more time with my kids, but I did stay at home most of their growing up time.  listening more, I guess.

 
Picture
What are some of the traits you think you'r children picked up from you?
  I think compassion and caring for others.  Some negative traits but we won't talk about that. 


Favorite memories with your children so far?
   talking on my bed, shopping and just spending time together.

Mother- transitive verb. maternal tenderness or affection. <a tender motherly touch>
