Review: Morgie Porgie Ribbon Works

You all know the holidays are coming up and I’m sure you already have a good idea what kind of BIG STUFF you’re going to buy for loved ones. But what about the LITTLE STUFF? Stocking stuffers, goody bag treats, etc. While stalking the many awesome shops on Etsy, I stumbled on this adorable shop, Morgie Porgie Ribbon Works, that makes adorable stuff like bows, clips, headbands, and keychain wristlets… Read more »

Why You Gotta Be Like That?!

Why You Gotta Be Like That?!

On My Mind 1

Ugh…I don’t know what to think. I need to vent: Are you afraid I’ll steal your best friend? Are you worried we’re talking about you or divulging our secrets without including you? That we’re falling apart? What is the problem?! Because the way I see it is I’m trying to reconnect with a best friend, to revel in our common interests, have fun with, and just relax with. None of… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 34 – The Quiet Baby Has Left the Building

Project BG2 6

Look! 34 weeks! Wow, this girl is growing fast! At this stage, she’s mastered “the lunge”, much to our hearts mixed dis/content. Love that she’s learning and growing, but so afraid she’s gonna bust a lip or something whenever she tries to reach for something she wants. No crawling yet, although she’s a pro at doing a 360 on her tummy and she’s got her Daddy’s excellent reversing skills! I’m… Read more »

Yep, you read it right! Lauren Oliver affectionately dubs her upcoming book, Pandemonium, Pandy. So cute & fun! I had the pleasure of meeting Lauren last night at her book signing at Children’s Book World. It’s a cozy little place, you’d miss it if you didn’t know it was there I suppose, but nice. Lauren is super sweet and so adorable. This would be the second book signing I’ve been… Read more »

When shopping for cheap, everyday bags, I usually go to Target or random places here and there, but then I see everyone and their mom with them! The thing I love about Etsy is everything’s handmade and a lot of it is unique. Anyways, this isn’t a discussion about my addiction to Etsy, while browsing through various shops for purses, I found LuckyCann – Handmade Bags for Function and Fashion…. Read more »

Young Adult Book Reviews 8 ★★★★★

Wow! I can’t even begin to tell you how addicted and in love I am with this book. I seriously didn’t know what to expect going in, but I was pleasantly surprised. I loved everything about this book. It has love, sexual appeal, mystery, action, paranormal intrigue, The Works! Accardo did an excellent job of creating a very realistic world of mutants (that’s the term I’m going to go with)… Read more »

Marriage, On My Mind 6

I finished reading Everneath last night around 3 am, review to come, and was compelled to look at my husband while he was sleeping, and smile. I won’t spoil the book for anyone but lets just say it’s a bit sad. One of the male leads, Jack, is so passionate and in love, along with the things he does throughout the story, it reminded me of my husband. I don’t… Read more »
