About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Glass Castle

   This book came highly recommended and I have to say that after reading two pages I was completely and utterly intrigued.  It's hard to explain.  I am not sure if I should be laughing or absolutely horrified.  It's so hard to believe that the author lived a life like this and survived to tell about it.  Amazing.  She must be an incredible lady to still feel love toward her parents, who must have some sort of mental illness.  I have only read a few chapters, but I know that I will be compelled to finish this in no time at all.  If I could just find a place to snuggle in for a few hours.  Remember those forts you used to make as a kid with chairs and blankets?  Perfect.

Oh I can't WAIT to pick your brain about your thoughts on it. If you havn't already, go to youtube and watch her promotional video of her with her mom. I always like to see the real people whilst reading a memoir. And per YOUR recommendation, I started The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency...I L O V E it!! I fell asleep with it on my chest last night I couldn't put it down.
