Eat, Pray, Love

Mom & I went to see Eat, Pray, Love today.
(Don't worry, I won't spoil anything.)

It was a great movie, although I think I had set my expectations too high.
It was very serious & the events progressed slowly.  I thought it would have had more exciting scenes & humor.
My final thoughts:
Julia Roberts was beautiful.
The food & culture were captivating.
I think everyone needs to find balance in life & this movie will inspire you to do it.
Ladies: leave the men at home & see this with your gals.
Who wants to go to Italy/India/Bali with me?

I thought I would end this post with my own version of "Eat, Pray, Love," & give all of you a deeper insight into my life.

Oh, do I love to eat.  Going out to eat is probably one of my favorite things to do!  Maybe it's just that I have a nice appreciation for being the one sitting at the table, as opposed to the waiter, since I used to be a server for what has felt like forever (actually, I did it for only two summers, but that's TOO LONG!).  

I try to be a really good eater during the week, but usually end up splurging on the weekends.
My major used to be Health Promotion and I really took an interest in my nutrition classes, which was reflected in my eating choices back then.
  Now, my major is communication and you know that they don't teach us about what we should & should not eat!

Here are some of my favorite "eats": 
sushi (y'all know this)
chicken salad wraps
french fries dipped in ranch dressing
pizza with spinach, mozzarella, & mushrooms
fettuccine alfredo
cookie dough

I come from a very strong Catholic family. 
I grew up in Catholic school.
   My family NEVER misses a Sunday mass
& therefore, I didn't either ... until I went to college.

Friends of mine that are regular church-goers aren't Catholic.
If I went to church with a protestant on a regular basis, my dad would fall over backwards.
Sometimes it's hard to go to church alone, but I've been doing it.

Lucky for me, Brandon (boyf), who grew up a protestant, said he would explore the Catholic faith with me.
He knows I won't marry him unless we are the same Christian denomination.
I want my children to see their Mommy & Daddy attending the same church, that way there is never any question as to what our faith is.
Yes, I'm a true believer that there are multiple paths, yet one destination, so I have nothing at all against different Christian denominations.  It's just that I've grown up with Catholic beliefs, & would like to keep it that way.

Now that Brandon has moved to Charleston, we can go to church together ... which is so great!

Ehh, enough typing... I'll just let pictures explain some of my many loves!

Hope everyone had a happy Sunday!
