Book Worm

Let's talk book reads, shall we? About a month ago, I decided to check out the public library here in Macon. Now, let it be known that I have not had a library card ever and I was just curious.

HOW HAVE I NOT KNOWN WHAT A WONDERFUL INVENTION THE LIBRARY WAS? I mean seriously. I knew it was free and you could rent as many books as you wanted, but I just did NOT UNDERSTAND. It is one of those things that you don't understand the magic behind it until you go. And let me tell, that I have taken full advantage of the free books. I have read 10 books since I got the library card of gold. 10 books.

The one thing I have learned though is that when looking for a book in the stacks, you really need to know what you are looking for. I made the mistake of just getting a book based on the cover with no reference for the book or the author. Bad mistake. It only took me about 40 pages to realize that this book might as well have been a soft porno. yuck. Needless to say, I did not finish that one. So dear readers, tell me what are you reading lately? Save me from buying any more contraband books from the library!

Books you should run to your local library for:

All four of the Emily Giffin books- I know I am last to board this train, but I just finished reading these. So good.

Swapping Lives- Jane Green

Second Wives Club-Jane Moore

Firefly Lane- Kristin Hannah(don't read this without an entire box of tissues near you)

Books I am reading this month:( not sure if the author names are spelled exactly correct...you get the idea)

Everyone Worth Knowing: Lauren Weisenberger

Goodnight Nobody: Jennifer Wiener

The Wedding: Nicholas Sparks

Tell me what you're reading!


Fly Away

Two weekends ago we flew back to Oklahoma for a family wedding. J's grandfather was getting married. Yep that's right. He is 78 and is getting remarried. He has been a widow for about 7 years now and found an adorable little lady!! Isn't that the cutest thing you have ever heard?

Here are some pics we took of the weekend.

I got to go to dinner with some girlfriends. We spent way too much money eating delicious sushi and it was fabulous!

Pictures from the wedding!

Isn't it fabulous to go back and visit places you used to call home?? Nothing better!


Thursday 5!

I thought I would join in with Keely's fun Thursday Five!! You are supposed to come up with 5 things that are making you happy lately!!! I am feeling particularly joyful this week...so why not?

1. My hubby leaving notes in my purse for me to find the next day at work. So sweet and thoughtful is he!

2. Sitting on the patio in the early evening reading a book.

3. Getting off from work every day early enough to get in two hours worth of tanning time at the pool! ( I work 6-3)

4. My new white jeans. I feel oh so fabulous when I wear them!

5. New followers and comments!

What are you LOVING lately?


I didn't die.

WOOOOOWEEEE!! I have fallen off the blogging train in a big way. I just looked and realized that I have not blogged yet in April...that is UNACCEPTABLE! Sorry for the absence....I am alive. I wish I had a good reason why I was gone. Please just pretend that I just got back from a two week European cruise and that I just did not have computer service. That sounds better than my actual non-excuse of just being a slacker. mmmmkay?!

Here are pics from my last two weekends.

Easter weekend we had a ball. We drove down to see the hub's family. It was really nice to get away and spend time with family. This was the first Easter in three years that we have been able to spend with family, which is just divine!


On the Saturday of Easter weekend, we went over to what is called the Warrior's Walk at Fort Hood in Hinesville, Ga. This is a memorial to all of the soldiers that have passed away in active duty. They plant an adorable cherry tree for each soldier. Alot of the trees have ornaments and other momentos from family members adorning them. Well, my precious younger sister in law is a crafting genius and decided she wanted to make a patriotic ornament for each tree to honor the soldiers. All 400 of them. Isn't she so selfless?? She has been working on them since September. I am so proud of her and her great idea. It was neat to be able to honor the soldiers that way. Especially the ones who do not have anything on their trees, since their families live too far away. We ended the day with a prayer surrounded by the trees. Such a neat experience. Here are some pics:

This past weekend, the hubby and I went and hiked a few miles at one of the Nature Parks near our home. It was the most unbelievably gorgeous day and we had a blast! God made such a beautiful earth. And yes, I am frolicking!

I'm back!
