Stephen King - Under The Dome


I am so excited about the new mini-series coming up based on Stephen King's book "Under the Dome". The book was released in November of 2009 but I didn't get around to reading it until the next fall at the same time as the story is set. I usually read all of Stephen's novels but I can't keep up with him. I read it and loved it so I even dreamed about it. Stephen's stories always pull me in like I am a part of the story somehow. They are so real, yet so unreal at the same time. I guess that's what I love about them! I must say that I don't like everything he writes, though. He even gets too creepy for me sometimes! Anyway, when I saw they were finally making a movie about the story I decided to read the book again. After seeing promos that appeared to be different than the book I wanted to refresh my memory. I loved it as much the second go round as the first! It's about a small town in Maine that has an impregnable dome drop over it and all that you can imagine could happen, does. I'm sure a lot of gory details will be left out but nevertheless I am sure it's gonna be awesome! 

The mini series starts on June 24 on CBS and runs once a week for 13 weeks. Be sure and set your DVR. You can read up on it here at CBS.  If you want to read about the book you can here on Stephen's official site. You can see a video of Stephen reading the first chapter of the book and the video promo for the book here on my former blog. Come Monday we'll all be happy we are outside of the Dome! I can't wait for this one!!!!

  1. I'm with you ... been waiting for it. I'm a little disappointed that network TV is doing it. We'd have hoped for the broader latitude in using King's dialog that HBO or SHO would have had. We're still hoping for a good adaptation, though.
    Setting the DVR this morning so I don't forget.

    1. Hi Jan, like you I am hoping that they can show the story without leaving out a bunch of the good stuff :o) I can already see loads of differences just from the promos but I am keeping my fingers crossed that it's great!! If nothing else we get to see a cow sliced in two right at the beginning. I read they thought they needed something larger than a woodchuck! lol

      Have you seen Hannibal yet? If they can show that on the networks I'd say Under the Dome can fly without a problem. I'm so excited!

      Thanks for stopping by. Always nice to hear from you!

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season

UGG.com
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
