Thanks for you!

Thank you for reading and following and doing all the things you do. It would be extremely hard for me to do this without your support. It’s been a ‘long’ weekend, but not long enough. It was great to recharge with family, friends and most importantly, me. Above is just a taste of what my Thanksgiving break looked like, and it is back to work tomorrow.

What did YOUR Thanksgiving look like?

In our house, both of us commute. So there are times where we just order out versus actually making an effort and making something at home. This is costly, and can take an insane amount of time. At the same time, my husband doesn’t have a lot of experience in the kitchen. Luckily we were able to find a new recipe, easy to make that we don’t have to ‘think’ about.

All of my life, I have heard that I read too much. That I spent entire vacations with my face in a book versus seeing the location. I have heard people who don’t get it, so called ‘readers’ tell me to butt out of conversations by going to read a book. People have even tried to bribe me with books. While some of it may be good natured,

Format Matters: Ebook Vs Physical Book

040810_1333_TimeGoesBy1.jpgI’m going to be a bit revolutionary today.

To some readers, format matters. I’ve seen ebook only readers, and I’ve seen physical book only readers… People, we shouldn’t be fighting over this! We’re readers, we enjoy things that most of the population can only hope to enjoy–yes, that’s true. However, when you’re judging me for carrying one e-reader versus eight books in my bag,

A few months ago, Amazon announced that you could add subscriptions to your Prime service for an additional fee. I picked Starz, because it sounded like a good idea… And introduced me to this gem of a show:
 


I was stoked to see that he mind behind Veronica Mars (Rob Thomas) was behind it, as well as a bunch of faces from The State (one of my favorite comedy troupes) and some favorite actors from Veronica Mars,

I read 4 books last week. 4 physical, but I also had an copy arc of one! That is funny how that worked out.

My husband and I have attended a Scottish formal event since shortly after we met at the end of 2011. It means we both get to wear something special. And tonight, I got to wear something really special in honor of my fourth formal in a row.
 


His kilt is special because it was made by hand (by my MIL) using a timeless process (secret!!!) from Scotland.

ThanksGiving AlwaysReidingThanksgiving has been a bit weird. We started off the day driving to my Grandmama’s home so we could head to the restaurant. We stopped just after leaving home, when we saw a man in the middle of the road, right in front of a car. We called 911 and I jumped out of the car, to wait with the guy–it would appear that he was crossing outside of a sidewalk and fell down between 2 cars.
