Let it Now


My son helped me wrap this package for Daddy. Normally I take care as to what the front of the package looks like, obviously not this time!

Boots


My Mommy got me these fun boots for Christmas. Since she is in Thailand, she had them shipped directly to my house and I opened them early, since they are too wonderful to leave in the box until Christmas.
Now that I have really cool boots and they are in a color other than black *gasp* I'm not sure the rest of my clothing repertoire is cool enough.
My boots with my new skinny jeans, which aren't too skinny around my knees. This looks messy to me.

With my boot cut jeans, which are a titch too long for me. But I'm too tall for the short jeans. What's a 5 foot 4 and half inch girl to do?

These are my Macy's-half-price-the-day-before-Thanksgiving boots. That was a great deal! I also wear these with the "skinny" jeans.

Book Review: The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

I have not seen the movie, but now that I have read the book, I can't wait to see it. I very much enjoyed the book, and I hope the movie can live up to my expectations. Has anyone seen it?

Whenever time travel is involved in a book or movie, I have lots of discussions with my hubby as to how it all works. I keep coming back to the same bottom line: time travel isn't possible. Niffenegger takes her own liberties in defining her time travel world, and I think it works.

I really loved the characters of Claire and Henry, and even though I new he would die in the end (that's not really a spoiler, is it? Doesn't everyone eventually die?) I still enjoyed the book. Definitely go read it!

Where Have I Been?

Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted on this blog. My little girl can reach the keys on the laptop now, so I have very little time to type on the computer. Plus, my sweet babies wake up at 5am, if I'm lucky, so I have to go to bed early too! But I have still been reading. Debbie Macomber has reissued a lot of her older works, and I have read all of those. It's interesting to see how an author has changed over the course of her career. Macomber has written TONS of books, and most of them are good and some are pretty good.

I want to get back into doing my book "reviews" (really just my simple opinion of a book), more as a way for me to keep track of what I've read. But, I think I will only review new books - we don't need a review of something Debbie Macomber wrote in 1995.

I haven't been taking as many pictures of food, for several reasons. One, I'm a creature of habit and I make the same things over and over, so usually, I've already taken a picture of whatever I'm currently making. Two, my kids have been giving me a run for my money, and I think to myself, why would I want to record this time in my life by taking a picture? But I'm really trying to get over that, because I can never get today back and take a picture of what my baby looks like.

So, here we go!
