Team Peeta!

To say Aaron and I are obsessed with the Hunger Games would be an understatement. Seriously. It's a problem! We finished the first book last weekend and finished the second this weekend. We have been reading them and taking turns catching up to the other one.  Last night I probably read aloud 100 pages to Aaron so we could finish the second book, around midnight. We are looking into purchasing the series we like them so much.

My problem is that they are starting to become a little too real. Last night, as we were laying in bed, in the dark, after we finished the book, my phone went off and I jumped 10 feet in the air. I was scared out of my mind that some guy with a trident or a girl with an ax would come at me in the dark and try to kill me. I now literally live in fear. Tonight, Aaron accidentally turned off the last light in our house and I freaked out telling him to turn the light on immediately! Let's just say...I would NOT be a good candidate in the Hunger Games. 

Aaron and I now also have our own "Hunger Games" lingo that we use to communicate on a daily basis. 
Ex. "I was so angry I was going to 'Hunger Games' them!"
Ex. "I Peeta you!" "I 'loaf' you!" "I 'knead' your love!
Ex. "He is so 'Finnik'-y!"
Ex. "Don't do that, the 'Capitol' will get you!"
Ex. "Good luck today and 'May the odds be ever in your favor'!"

The list goes on, but you get it. We are hoping to see the show on Friday! I am a little nervous but mainly really excited about it! Team Peeta!

  1. I will be very interested to hear your opinion of Mockingjay....Ty and I were both very disappointed. We recommend people read the 1st and 2nd books and then make up your own ending. :O)
