2016 reading challenge

2016 reading challenge

I set my goal at 50 books – kinda pushing myself this year. It’s not easy with two little humans fighting for my time and working full time, planning school, dinners, working out, etc. But, I’m happy to say I’m not that far behind, maybe 2 books and I’ll be caught up. 🙂 Yay to small victories.

How is everyone doing this year with their reading challenge?

Any particularly great books that I should add to my ‘to read’ list?

Yoga – meditation – shrink session – therapy – whatever you call it, that’s reading for me.

According to Dr. Seuss: The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Tree Stump Fairy House – little girls, big dreamers :)

13 Jul

My five year old is a huge Tinker Bell fan. What better way to bring her play world outdoors? I love this idea by A Farm Girl’s Life. Thank you for the post 🙂
We have an old stump in the backyard that we can transform into something similar. Can’t wait to share this and explore that great imagination of hers. Dream big, little princess. The sky is no longer the limit…

At A Farm Girl’s Life, Allison shows how you can make an adorable little fairy house out of a hollow tree stump.

Man of Steel (2013)

31 Jul

Man of Steel for the softer/female/emotional audience. I have to say that it was a pleasant surprise to watch a superman film that was so in touch with emotions and hit close to real life struggles. Great retelling. The actors did a great job. Excited for the rest of the films.

The Scary, Exciting, Inevitable Future of the Mobile Phone

11 Apr

Sci-Fi post: I’m re-blogging this one because has very good points in his post. I think the cell phone will evolve into something so much bigger than what they are today. That says something, because today cell phones are everywhere and do just about everything that was once only done on PC’s. I wonder what a similar post will say 20 years from now….

When the mobile phone started to hit the big time in the late 80’s I was a wet-behind-the ears Irish lad trying to make his way in the massive metropolis of London.

It was a time of excess, just before the crash, when Thatcher’s great and prosperous nation had yet to hit the skids of recession and negative equity.

At that time there was no better status symbol to flash in the pubs of Soho than the large, brick-like mobile phone.  Through the mid 80’s the “mobile” was seen as the city traders essential business tool.  By the time I got there they were becoming the must have tool of every middle manager from Twickenham to Walthamstow.

I don’t believe anyone could have predicted then that the ostentatious Yuppie business tool, the partner in crime of the Filofax and the pager, would go on to find a place in the…

Review: Walking Disaster (Beautiful, #2)

10 Apr

I love the fist book, Beautiful Disaster, and did not think I would like this one as much. I’m glad I was wrong and buying this was very worth it.
Thank you for blogging Reads and Thoughts. I’m passing your words and image along to share your insight with my reader friends…..

Just saw this movie and I can really appreciate why it has rec’d so many nominations. Great performances and even though I laughed, man did this remind me of real life moments. It’s fresh and real and I definitely recommend it to all movie lovers. Brad Cooper was fantastic and Robert DeNiro proved, once again, why he is great on screen. Jennifer Lawrence felt so real. Loved her character….she did a phenomenal job.
We’re all a little nuts, our families especially, that’s why it’s so great to watching it develop in a movie. It’s selfish but knowing there are other nut-so’s out there kinda makes me feel good about my lunacies. :0
Thank you Canadian Cinephile for this blog post. I’m reblogging and spreading your great post.

Dinner party a la Grey??

Hello world!

30 Mar

Welcome to I’m new to writing my blog but not necessarily new to writing. I hope that with this blog I can share some of my adventures as a new mommy. It’s been almost a year since my precious daughter was born and it has been the very best year of my life….so far. Nothing anyone said prepared me for the onslaught of emotions. Some days I cried from joy, love, and wonder yet others from pain, sleep deprivation, and from being dog tired. After it all though, I wouldn’t change a second of the last year. Life threw me the BEST curve-ball; I caught it and ran!

Welcome and enjoy!
