Book Review: Reparation by Sawyer Bennett

Book Review: Reparation by Sawyer Bennett

Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★★★

One Line: The best one yet! In My Opinion: Add to cart! This was what I was waiting for! Reparation is all about Matt and Mac FINALLY giving it a go at a real relationship. I loved seeing the sweet and romantic side of Matt and I loved that Mac is finally getting her dream relationship with him. Of course, things take a bit of turn as the story progresses,… Read more »

Pregnancy Symptoms This Time Around: Nausea

Pregnancy Symptoms This Time Around: Nausea

Pregnancy, Pregnancy Diary 1

So we all know nausea is one of the inevitable symptoms of pregnancy. Those hormones really know how to wreck your body. Well, with my past two pregnancies, I didn’t really have much of a problem with it. If memory serves me correctly, I felt queasy for about 2-3 weeks and things cleared up fine. And I think I only vomited a couple times with the first pregnancy. Baby #3,… Read more »

Book Review: Jet by Jay Crownover

Book Review: Jet by Jay Crownover

New Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★

One Line: While I enjoyed the characters, the plot wasn’t the best. What I Loved: Jet is one of those rocker, bad boys you can’t help but fall for. I liked that despite his image, he was a pretty caring guy. Not to say he wasn’t a play boy, but he definitely tries to do the right thing, especially when it comes to his family and friends, and he’s a… Read more »

As the Bump Grows: Week 16

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 4

Wow! Can’t believe I’m starting another pregnancy diary! If you missed the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, check it out. I’m starting this one a little earlier than I did with my previous one, but that’s mostly because I couldn’t wait to start chronicling this pregnancy, since it’ll be my last. And now for the belly shot: I know I look pretty big already and I’ll admit it’s 2/3 of my fat and… Read more »

A Disney’s Frozen Birthday Party

A Disney’s Frozen Birthday Party

BG2, Parenting 4

Last Sunday we celebrated BG2’s 3rd birthday with a Disney’s Frozen-themed party. Let me tell you, it was not an easy feat! I didn’t know Frozen party supplies were basically sold out everywhere, not to mention their costumes or even their toys, all gone! Luckily, we managed as best we could. I basically stuck to a blue and white theme, especially with the table. I tried to have some blue… Read more »

Book Review: White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Young Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★★

One Line: JLA lures you in with this gem of read and leaves you begging for more! Why can’t Roth be real?! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! Armentrout delivers a refreshing paranormal tale with a twist. After getting a glimpse of this world in Bitter Sweet Love, I was excited to dive into White Hot Kiss and really see what these creatures were all about. Here, you get a… Read more »

Book Review: Enders by Lissa Price

Book Review: Enders by Lissa Price

Young Adult Book Reviews 4 ★★★

One Line: Plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested! In My Opinion: Worth a try! I loved Starters and have been dying to read Enders to see how it all ends. While this book is filled with plenty of action, a few surprises, and a pretty decent ending. As much as I enjoyed the story and Price’s writing, there was something missing this time around, that spark that… Read more »

Book Review: Rule by Jay Crownover

Book Review: Rule by Jay Crownover

New Adult Book Reviews 3 ★★★★

One Line: A good mix of angst, drama, and character growth. What I Loved: It actually took me a minute to warm up to Shaw. At first, I thought she was pretty weak and a little too nice, like easily taken advantage of. But, as the story progressed, and important things and people in her life were on the line, she stood up for herself, showed strength, and handled a… Read more »

You read that one right! I’ve been holding this in for quite awhile now and have been DYING to shout it out to the world. We’re pregnant with Baby #3! Yay! Although we haven’t told the whole world yet, we’ve slowly told people we’ve seen as the months have progressed. I just figured I’d go ahead and announce it here on the blog now because I wanted to start doing… Read more »
