Love Bugs

Lovebugs....a nickname I had for my adorable daughters until recently when I came to realize that there are actually a species of bug out there called lovebugs...oh yes and the name is totally acurate for these little horny insects! As it turns out, where I live in FL, they become sex addicts two times a year, May and sometime in the fall. Let me elaborate for all of you whom arent familiar with the Lovebugs, you would think that they would be a cute insect...FALSE they are ugly black little buggers who are so busy being stuck together doing the nasty, these nothingtolove bugs cant pay attention to where they are going leading to them landing on you, in the pool, on the car, etc(which if you dont wash these "love"ly creatures off they become acidic and ruin the paint on your vehicle) So imagine my horror when I discover I have been calling my daughters the name of a bug whose record setting lovemaking would make Tiger Woods and politicians seem like saints! Well from now on I will be sticking to nicknames such as darling or sweetpea. Have a "love"ly day!

Larkspur Cove by Lisa Wingate

I recieved Larkspur Cove by Lisa Wingate from Bethany House Publishers to read and review. I was so excited to find that it was such an interesting read! And no I am not just giving it an A+ because I got it for free! So here are my thoughts and review of the book...There are two main characters: Andrea Henderson, an emotional and stubborn social worker, who moves back to her childhood summer home in Moses Lake with her son to start over after her divorce; and Mart McClendon, a tough game warden who can't let his past stay behind him. Add in a quiet little girl who has recently been seen with the towns unsociable hermit and let the search for her identity begin! This book weaves romance and drama beautifully together making it hard to put this book down! I also loved the bits of wisdom from a "wisdom wall" at a the Waterbird Bait and Grocery(an actual store in Moses Lake, Texas!) that were put in at the beginning of each chapter, it added some humor into the book and I ended up writing some of them down in my journal(yes I do have a journal ;). Anyways, here is one of the amusing little quotes "Even a fish wouldn't get into trouble if he kept his mouth shut." So if you get the chance to get this book for your kindle, ipad, iphone, or even the oldschool paperback you will not be disappointed!

New Job!

So its been a while since my last post, and since then ive gotten a job! okay so my first official day isnt until wednesday, but still I'm excited! It is for a front office/secretary position at a acupuncture clinic, I start off training a few days a week for a few hours and then all day saturdays. Then once training is done, about a month, my schedule will be saturdays and a few hours on thursdays. Here's the back story, my husband and I had been looking for a parttime weekend job for one of us, especially me because I enjoy being able to get out a few days a week also student loans have been a giant cloud looming over our household lately, so the sooner we get those paid off the better. On craigslist there was a listing for a saturday secretary position 8:30am-4pm, so I applied, the next day I get a call from the office manager and scheduled my interview for the following day! Anyways long story short, the interview went extremely well and I got a call back less than a week later that I got the job, I went in last saturday to fill out the paperwork and start training on wednesday! I cannot begin to say how amazed we were, we are so thankful that God has provided such an awesome experience for me, working at a place I really enjoy, accupuncture and more holistic/natural medicine which is right up my alley! Oh and the best part is, saturdays my husband can babysit which means we only have to find a sitter for a few hours on thursdays :) I am very excited to see how this goes, wish me luck!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day! This morning my husband told me I should probably not stick to pjs and robe all day because there would be a "package" being delivered. I dont know exactly what it is, but my curiosity is killing me! I will let you what happens... Anyways if you are looking for a great FREE gift for yourself, go to Amazon's Kindle Store and download your free version of the kindle for your computer or Iphone and then visit this part of the kindle store... has the bestsellers list of priced and FREE books, and there are actually some really good books under the free section that are constantly being updated, and there are some classics that are there all the time, like Pride and Prejudice, Moby Dick, etc. I hope your Valentine's Day is filled with love and spent with the ones who mean the most to you!

Home again...

So we're back from the frigid weather of Michigan and loving the warmer weather even though it has only been 60s and 70s. Have you all watched the commercial for (i can't remember the exact brand) a washer and dryer where the mother is sitting in a daze just watching them?...well I used to laugh and think what is so interesting about that, well the other day when I was doing laundry and had the dishwasher going I just sat there listening to the machines doing there work and guess what? The commercial lady was right..there is something relaxing about listening to those machines going! I dont know if its because the noise helps my daughters nap, or just the fact that I feel like my house is becoming cleaner, but that beautiful noise of the washer/dryer/dishwasher made me want to curl up with my favorite book and a cup of coffee...while for a bit anyways until my 3 year old needs her afternoon snack ;) My new year's resolution is just one ol' little goal but very challenging, learning to put more trust in what God has planned for me and my family and less of me thinking I know it all. I hope your 2011 is happy and blessed!!
