    I can’t believe the stories of dedication to voting that are surfacing … I’ve never waited more than 5min at a polling station here in Canada (for municipal, provincial, or federal elections!) — and I’ve gone at peak hours!
    It’s great to hear that people are finally rising to the challenge and voting!! Our right to vote (especially as women, but everyone in general) was something that our fore-families faught hard to get and to keep. I find it ridiculous that people will not vote, and then complain about the government!! Here’s to having a voice and speaking up when required!
    And ohmygoodness, does that bread pudding EVER look good!! I haven’t had bread pudding in forever. I might need to find a recipe to tackle! 😉

    I tried to live stream the election results on my computer but my Internet wasn’t cooperating, I found out the results from Facebook! There were some very opinionated statuses…

    I’m SO glad it’s all over and hope we can stop all of the political talk and come together as a nation – we have a lot to accomplish and we make it a lot harder when we’re divided.

    I am so happy the election is over! I miss real commercials.

    Also, what Carolyn said — where did you get your dress? It’s really cute!

    I was up too late last night too (well, 9:45pm BUT THIS IS LATE FOR ME, as I get up at 4:30 am to workout). I couldn’t stop watching. I had major anxiety last night…I was even ‘stress eating’ a bag of chips — I never do that! When I finally felt like it was “over” (that I could rest easy that Obama won), I went to bed, but I still felt anxious.

    But was SO HAPPY when I checked my phone this morning to see the USA Today alert that Obama won! PHEW!!!

    Also wanted to say that I LOVE your hair in that pic! You look uber cute.

    That’s such a great story about your cousin. It’s so nice to hear positive things when so much of this has been negative! I, too, couldn’t stop watching TV, and my stomach was tied up in knots every time they got ready to call a new state! Have they even called Florida yet? Last time I checked it was too close to call.

    Love that red dress! So pretty!

    I’m glad it’s over, and I hope the country can come back together. We all may disagree on a lot of things, but we are all still americans.

    I woke up today actually feeling so much more relaxed, specifically because all of this is over! I’m happy Obama was reelected and I’m ECSTATIC the ads and emails are over! Thank god these elections are only every four years, although everyone should get riled up for all federal elections (and state too!). Our government doesn’t hinge on one man!

    Anyway, so glad for things to go back to normal. Peaceful peaceful normal <– at least compared to this last year!

    Yeah, I just needed to go to bed. But how exciting for both you and I to be in such important states!

    My husband waited 5 hours to vote! We only moved to Montana a month ago. Luckily, MT allows same day registration, so he was able to register and vote yesterday. I registered and voted on Monday. I thought I had it bad, because I had to wait an hour.

    They’d already called Montana for Romney by the time he voted 🙂

    Gotta admire him for the stamina to wait. He was just determined to cancel out all my votes. He spent the 5 hours talking to a dog-loving Obama supporter (my husband is a staunch conservative who also hates my dog).

    Ugh I am so happy that the election is over! I wasn’t feeling well last night so I loaded up on cold meds and passed out. It was kinda refreshing to just wake and be told who was president instead of watching state by state, vote by vote 🙂

    I don’t think I’ve ever waited more than about 10 min to vote (I’ve always lived in Ohio & have voted since 2000). I’m very impressed with the dedication of people who have to wait that long! Good for them 🙂

    Very glad it’s over and all of the political FB statuses can stop, but I also feel very proud to be an American and be able to exercise my right to vote.
