Shrek Forever and Ever and Ever and Ever and Ever an...


Do you know what that is? That's a picture of Jared's hands gripping the steering wheel of his Mustang, and taking me for an epic early birthday day of awesome!

My birthday isn't for another week (from today), but on Wednesday, Jared told me that he wanted to take me to Shrek Forever After and Iron Man 2 back to back. Of course, on the way we grabbed a couple of quadruple venti caramel macchiatos--which, I must say, were delicious.

I tried to photograph everything so that I could share a bunch of cute pics with you guys, but taking pics of yourself and someone else in a car, with a lens that zooms in slightly all the time, is impossible.

FAIL.


Anyway, it was a total blast, and both the movies were awesome! Shrek was beautiful....and heart wrenching. You have to understand--I'm mildly obsessed with the Shrek movies. I have been having difficulty sleeping, and the only things that relax me enough to sleep are the couch, and one of the Shrek movies on in the background. So, this WAS the perfect ending to the series....but the perfect perfect ending would have been Shrek 5...and Shrek 6....and then Shrek 7. Oh, let's make it 8.

Quite frankly, the Shrek movies are just too charming for their own good.


But despite the ending that left unspilled tears in the form of a stone blockage in my throat, and the painfully nostalgic end credits that played clips from all of the previous movies, it was just as fun and fantastic as the rest. I give three thumbs up, eleven stars, and a hearty applause to the final chapter in the Shrek saga.

I'm gonna cry.

Sounds like you guys had a SUPER fun day! Happy Early Birthday to you, Ab! Didja know that your birthday is a day after mine? Although, you can boast of being older. (Or is me who can boast of being YOUNGER? I shall quote a wise announcer dude..."The world may never know.")

I love the Shrek movies. You are so right. Grace had a sleepover with her friend and went and saw it (while the rest of us went to my grandparents cuz my parents had a wedding to go to) and loved it. Your response reaffirms my longing to go see it. There. I can be poeticy while talking 'bout Shrek. Okay, maybe not. ;-)

Love ya!

Love your new header, first of all. And the background, and the new color schemes. <3

Mmm. The venti caramel macchiatos sound...AMAZING. (:

HAHA! That has happened so many times to me. HA! Some pictures I just start laughing so hard when I look at them. Let's face it. Self-photography with a DSLR camera is TOUGH! (:

Shrek. Is. Awesome. All there is to it.

Love ya,
Bekah

You guys are too cute! I am not sure I can handle another Shrek movie, but the Quad Venti Caramel Macchiato, now that I could totally handle!

happy birthday!!! it sounds like your celebration has already started out on a good foot! hope the rest is grand and ever so special! i cannot believe there's another shrek movie out... but considering i cry over spilled milk (i'm a crier and my mad pregnancy hormones only multiply it by a million) at this point, i need to avoid all possible tear jerkers for fear that i'll turn into a wet, slobbery goofball (kind of like my dog).

How fun! Shrek rules. Whether you're a little kid, a teen, a grownup, an old woman, Shrek NEVER is too old for ANYONE!

P.S. I like how you redid your header! =)

Hey Abigail --
I was wondering if you could give me some advice. You see, I'm looking to save money to buy a new camera, a REAL camera. Not just a little digital one you can fit in your pocket. Could you recommend one for me? I love all your pictures and you are an AMAZING photographer.
If you would, I would love a response on my latest blog post, but if you would just like to respond here that'll be fine too.
Thanks so much!
~Emma

Don't mind me, I have been reading most of the posts on your blog, and it wasn't fair that I wasn't commenting on any..since I am "too" late...but anyways, I love Disney movies, they always have such magic in them, so heart warming, moral lesson givers as well as buckets of tears are shred for them. I loved the Shrek series simply love it. So I understand what you are trying to say.
Amazing blog..
and Mustang EEPS!!!!!
Take care.
