In My Mailbox #2

Books, Shopping 3

 *In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren showcasing all the books we recently bought, borrowed, or received. * I finally got through my last pile of books so I just had to stop by Barnes & Noble to purchase a new pile to dive into.

My 10 Seconds of Fame!

My 10 Seconds of Fame!

On My Mind 5

I was recently contacted by Angela over at Agloves (review here) because my local Channel 6 News wanted to do a piece on their product and they thought of me. After talking it over with her and the Consumer News reporter, Nydia Han, I got to do a little interview with her and play with my iPad using the Agloves. It was an interesting experience and I really hope to… Read more »

The Bump Tales – Week 34

The Bump Tales 3

It’s Week 34 here at The Bump Tales and it’s been a crazy one. I think I’m getting a little impatient and I feel the mood swings coming on every now and then, feels like I’ve been pregnant FOREVER and I’m so ready to have BG2 (although I’m trying not to jinx it because I do want her to grow as much as she can in there). Well this week… Read more »

Review: TShirtPrinting.net

Reviews 0

I recently got a chance to check out a t-shirt from this printing company TShirtPrinting.net and I have to say their prints are quite cute. I received a shirt with their mascot the “Cheeky Monkey” on it to see and it was basically your typical shirt with a print on it. Still, the quality looks good and the shirt is of a good, durable cotton material, unlike some shirts that… Read more »

Book Review: The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts

Book Review: The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts

Adult Book Reviews 7 ★★★★

Since this is a Quartet style book series and since I read them all one after the other, I decided to do a review of them together. Even though each book can stand out from the rest of the series, I thought it would be nice to compare and contrast each of them and then discuss my opinions of the series as a whole. The first book basically set the… Read more »

The Bump Tales 2

Could this be? Time for another episode of The Bump Tales already?!?! Time sure does fly! Sometimes March 8th feels like it’s a lifetime away and other times I feel like it’s right around the corner. I’ve been telling myself to enjoy these last few weeks of pregnancy because once the baby comes, things will change forever. So this week was a little bit of a drag because I caught… Read more »
