Body Memo's

Dear Belly,
Why have you betrayed me so? You use to be so tight and skinny, but now all you do is hang there loose and lumpy. Why is that? In the past, I could proudly show off your toned muscles in a tiny two piece. Now I have to hide you underneath a baggy t-shirt. I know, I know, it's not all your fault. What's that? You're hungry and want more carbs.....Well if you insist.
Hungering for you,

Dear Chin,
I was just wondering when you thought it was okay to start growing a hair? This morning as I was applying make up, I felt it! You couldn't have been nicer and grown a soft, light hair, NO! You had to choose a thick, bristly, black thing! Well, I have something coming for you, it's called HOT WAX! Take that....
Concurringly yours,

Blog Book Review! Boys and a maze...

The Maze Runner
by James Dashner

A little bit about this great book:
Thomas wakes up and finds himself in a world he doesn't recognize, and he can't remember anything about his past. The heart of this story is the mystery of the maze. Boys live in this maze made up of stone walls that protect them from horrible creatures and the boys are faced with the endless challenge of solving a maze that changes every day and seems to have no exit. Just as I thought I knew what was going to happen next, I was wrong. I loved that it kept me guessing right up to the last page. I will definitely be waiting anxiously for the sequel.

Now it's books like this that makes me want mine published, because of the thought that's gone into the plots and characters. GO read this book!

Blog Book Review!

The Hollow
By Jessica Verday
Couldn't you just lick this cover? It's beautiful! This book is very good.
Abbey's best friend, Kristen, disappears from the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery bridge and while everyone thinks is was suicide. Abbey refuses to believe such a thing, but when she finds out about a secret life Kristen was keeping from her, she doesn't know what to think. At the funeral, Abbey meets a hot guy named Caspian and come to find out. He has a few secrets of his own. When Abby starts to find out the truth about her friends she also uncovers the truth behind the legend of Sleepy Hollow and doesn't know how much more her sanity can take.
I loved this book. It's also the first book of a three part series, each one coming out every September. If you want a good follow up to Twilight This book, The Hollow of the previous one Wings are both excellent picks!

Halloween 2009

We had so much fun!

This is the only deer Jess got this year.
The lil' Trick or Treaters heading out to get some candy...

Dom is so scary!

Paisley is such a cute Minnie Mouse

Seth is a tough KING KONG, my friend Connie Yearsley made this outfit for him last minute. She did a great job!

At the end of the night the kids had filled their buckets full of candy and were done. Although, when we had ran out of candy, I turned out the porch lights but it didn't stop the trick or treaters. They kept on coming... I thought that having you light on meant you are welcome to knock but if it's off that the house is no longer playing? Am I wrong. But, anyway. The kids had so much fun. Jess was shocked when I put on my costume. I got it just a few hours before we left. We had a good laugh.
I hope everyone had a great Halloween!
