The Vow

Good morning my lovelies!
Have y'all heard of the book, The Vow?  I admit I hadn't heard of this story until the other day when I was reading over at C Mae's blog Happiness Is... and read her post about a new book she's reading called The Vow.  Then, I read the book is being made into a new movie starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum.  I love Rachel McAdams because she's pretty much adorable.  And Channing Tatum isn't too hard on the eyes either.  Another added bonus, Scott Speedman.  Swoon!  (I've loved him ever since he played Ben on the TV show Felicity, one of my long time favorite shows.) 

And y'all know how much I LOVE to read a good book and then go see the movie.  I like to see the characters come to life on the big screen and compare the book to the movie (except I hate when when they change the storyline for the movie.  This makes me SO mad.)

After reading C Mae's blog post, I immediately had to look up the synopsis of this story and I'm so so so intrigued.  The Vow: The Kim and Krickitt Carpenter Story, is a true story about an oh-so in love newlywed couple, when one night their small car is hit from behind by a large truck.  The wife suffers severe injuries and when she wakes up from her coma, she can remember everyone in her life - except for her husband.  The book tells the tale of their struggle after she wakes from her coma and they try to piece their life back together.  This is definitely one I'm going to have to download on my kindle and read in the near future.  Obviously, I'll want to see the movie too.  Check out the movie trailer here:

Have any of y'all read this one already?  Or plan to see the movie?  It looks both heartbreaking and inspiring.  I can't wait!

This Commercial Gets Me Every Time

Do y'all know and love the google chrome "Dear Sophie" commercial as much as I do?  I can't help but tear up  Seriously.  Tears in my eyes.  Always.  It's just such a sweet idea and it pulls at my heart strings.  Anyway, watch it.  Please tell me I'm not the only lame sap out there getting all weepy over a commercial. 

What did you think?  In all honesty, I've been known to pull this one up on YouTube and watch it occasionally.  I just love it.  Yea, I know, I'm a sap. 

Happy Wednesday, y'all!

Big Sky Country, part II

My favorite day in Montana we spent floating down North Fork and the evening shooting skeet in Kalisbell.  The weather was absolutely perfect and it was a fun and relaxing time.  We started our float right at the Canada/Montana border.  

The line in the trees is the United States/Canada border.  (The U.S. is on the left.)

In 2 countries at once.

Ready for floating!

(I know y'all are jealous of my cool neon water shoes, but try to keep it under control.)

We saw deer during our float and I was so excited I managed to snap 10,000 pictures before they disappeared.  Haha!

Taking a break.

Getting closer to the white water. Unfortunately I couldn't take any pics during this part because I was too busy getting soaked by the waves, thanks to my nice friend paddling the boat.


I wasn't a fan of the restrooms.

Y'all ready for some skeet shootin'?

I actually did better than I thought I would and hit about 50%.  It was a BLAST!

The Elk.  They were giant up close. 

Posing in front of the Elk.

And for my big Montana purchase.....guess what I got? 

That's right!  My very own white Stetson!  :)
(I also purchased an adorable pair of moccasin shoes.)

Although, I quickly realized....Kate Middleton, I am not.  Haha!
Remember my post here?  She pulls the cowgirl chic look off way better than I ever will.

I hope y'all had a fabulous weekend!  Please go visit Montana soon.  You will love it and be so glad you did.
