I couldn't have said it better myself

I love books, A LOT! Buying books is my worst addiction. Well maybe the love obsession of my dog is worse. Ry guy would point out that books cost money, obsessing over your dog doesn't.  I don't have an e-reader, and I don't plan get to an e-reader anytime soon. Do you guys have e-readers or do you prefer books? I'm curious about e-readers, but love the feel of having that book in your hand. Lugging the book around with you. Making sure there is room in my suitcase for books. Jen got her reading back. Wow! That was is terrible. I can't believe I tried to reference my-self with "How Stella got her Groove Back".  Sorry friends. 

What are you guys reading? I have a zillion books I want to read, but I'm always on the look out for new books and authors. 



eating while driving

I just looked at my blog for this week and the past four posts have been link-ups. I hate when people do that. I'm becoming one of those people I hate. Sorry for that. I guess I lost a follower last night, perhaps  because of my love affair with link-ups. I promise to cut back on the link-ups.  I dunno how they got control of me. 

On my way to work this morning I stopped to gas up Herbie.  While I was standing there day dreaming trying to wake up I notice the mini van fueling behind me was still moving. My life flashed before my eyes. That was a bit dramatic. I seriously started to freak out the guy with the mini van didn't bother to put it in park. WTF. Who does that??? okay I've done it before in my garage, cuz I had to pee so bad it seemed logical. he was busy standing at the pump eating his breakfast, who eats their breakfast at the gas pump? I know we all have places to go, people to see, shit to get done, but really-eating your pizza at the gas pump? and for breakfast you middle aged man.  Are you hungover? or still think its okay to have pizza for breakfast. good news is I'm still alive and the mini van didn't take my life. 

However, I got to thinking about how I hate when I see people eating in their cars. I know everyone does it. I try not to, unless its french fries or something like that. I hate driving down the road see the mini van aka the grocery getter swerving as you eat your triple Whopper with cheese. UGH. gah-rose! People just put down the food, the phone, the magazine, the mascara, the razor, and focus on driving. whew thanks for letting me have my bitch session today. my therapist is on vacay this week. ha. I kid.  I think Ry-guy is sick of hearing me bitch this week.

What are your driving pet peeves??? Someone please comment, so I know I'm not crazy!

Netflix has been my best-friend lately.  Who doesn't love this show????

you should totally check out this show on OWN (Oprah's channel).  Lisa Ling is what really makes this show.

Friday's Letters 2

Linking up for Friday's Letters 

Dear Dexter, I can't wait to spend all my free time snugglin' with you this weekend. Papa is going to work in the yard and that doesn't sound like much fun.

Dear extremely hot weather, I hate you. I mean nobody wants to be frying at 95 degrees and if you do, seek help immed.

Dear Minnesota, I've been missing you a lot. I feel like part of my heart is missing now that we're 602 miles away.

Dear canker sores, please leave immed. Early this week you were on the left side of the mouth and now on the right. I just want you to vanish. poof! gone!

Dear books, I'm sorry I haven't been reading you as much. I really miss you. Its not you, its me. I have been lacking interest in you and I don't like that its happening this way.

Dear Mama, I miss you!

Dear hair, please grow longer ASAP.  I'm not sure our friend Biotin has helped as much as everyone said it was going to. Just grow three more inches and I'll settle.

Dear Ryan, Please get your self a hair cut son. That mane of yours its cray cray.  I like you with your Ryan Reynolds do.  Oh and I love you and can't wait to have some fun this weekend. This week has gone on foreva.  Thanks for listening to me sob and bitch the past couple days. Changes are a comin' for us baby!




Whoa it was almost two whole days without a blog post. eek.  I've had some stuff going on this week, and some stuff in the works. Hopefully soon I can share everything. Until next time...



one year ago today I started this little blog. I didn't really think anyone would read it, let alone follow it. For everyone who reads, follows, comments, and emails me THANK YOU!  I love having this place to share all things: Dexter Morgan, nail polish, Ry-guy,  our move to Missoura, and everything else in between.

Thank you again so much for following our adventures.
