OHHH.EMMM.GEEE. How did I wait this long to read the Hunger Games? I held out thinking it didn't interest me for the longest time. Then, the book fair came to my school and my students were all buying it like crazy. With the movie coming up, I thought I would give in and read it. I'm HOOKED. I started Mockingjay last night after finishing the first two. I've even got MM reading it. He passed it on to his oldest child and she's anxiously waiting for Dad to hurry up and finish Catching Fire so she can get it.
We go see the movie on Wednesday night for our next date night. I can't wait!
Do you like the books? Who do you like most--Peeta? Katniss? Gale? Please--don't tell me anything about the movie until after Wednesday night!!

This picture cracks me up so much. It was date night last week and I took it and texted to MM's brother with the caption "Our to dinner. Wanna guess which plate is mine and which is your brother's?"
Let me fill you in--Military Man likes "to savor his food." You see, in his mind, if you pay good money for a meal, you need to fully enjoy every bite. Apparently, me notsomuch. I've learned being with him that I inhale my food (years of being a mom maybe?). And so, I eat quickly and sit and stare at the man for up to fifteen--twenty minutes while he savors each.and.every.freaking.bite.
And I love him for it.
