A Book In Review.

get-attachment.aspx

Brief Summary:

Beth Thomas has the perfect life. At thirty-five, she’s married to her college sweetheart, has two adorable kids, and teaches part time at the local university. But when a friend persuades Beth to go dancing on a rare night out, a chance meeting with twenty one year old Dave, one of her former students, changes the course of her life. Loud music, too much to drink, and the thrill of feeling young again lead to an unforgettable kiss that was never supposed to happen. As she tries to put the memory behind her, Dave’s pursuit leaves Beth torn between what her mind says is right and what her heart and body crave.

Review:

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. The internal struggle that the main character, Beth, goes through is so real it becomes painful for the reader at times. I don’t mean that in a bad way at all. I just mean it’s raw and real and makes the story so emotional. Beth’s journey at balancing her life and herself is captivating. I’ve had the same thoughts and conversations with myself at times, not about the same exact things, but it’s still a battle to be inside your own head. I was rooting for Beth’s happiness from the beginning and began to think of her as my own friend. I couldn’t put the book down, I read it in a day. I just needed to know how it ended. I recommend this 4.5 star book to anyone who loves a good story who keeps you on the edge of your seat. It’s a book that would be perfect for your next book club too, cause it could start conversations that could flow for hours. Xo.

A tribute…

To one of my most favorite things, ever. *nsync!

NSYNC-nsync-12616571-1024-768

I can’t even begin to describe what those 5 guys meant to me growing up. I was obsessed with them. I saw them 9 times in concert and each time was better than the last. I was the definition of a “fangirl” wayyyyy before it was such a thing. My walls were covered with posters, mostly of Jt, but I had a bunch of group shots too. 3 out of 5 of them touched my hand (yes, Justin was one of them…#swoon) So you can imagine what happened to me when I read the news about tonight’s reunion VMA performance. I’ll admit it. I cried. At work, in my cubicle. Yes, you read that right, I’m 29 and I cried at work cause of a boy band. But I want you all to realize this. I always have at least one of the cds in my 6 disc player in the car, I thinking about watching popoddyessy live on dvd at least once a week, and I will still get into a scrap with anyone who thinks BSB is better. *nsync is one of those things that still can put a huge smile on my face. The boys will forever be one of my most fave things and probably my most fave music act. I’m not one to ever wish away a day off, but come on 9pm, get here already! Xo.

It’s Five-day!

Alright, I’ve decided to change “These are my obsessions” to “It’s Five-day!” which will be a post on Friday of five things from the week. Clearly, this is a work in progress.  But I think this will stick…anyway on to the post!

I had a busy week with the anniversary of my Grandma’s passing, the birth of my best friend, Dana’s little girl, and rafting & zip lining with my co-workers as a team building event. Phew, this weekend I’m looking forward to sushi with Dawn & Sara and the VMAs on Sunday. My fingers, eyes, legs, toes, nose, arms are all crossed that the rumors are true, about a certain 5 guys performing 😉

This picture I found on google has been my phone background all week in honor of my Grandma. It makes me smile each time I see it.

I’ve been in love with height on the crown of the head for ponytails. And this one that Ali Fedotowsky instagramed has to be my most favorite. I need to know how to add that height to my ponytail asap.

Avianna Marae is the most gorgeous newborn. I’m so in love with this peanut, I can’t wait to teach her about all things girly!

A cool ranch Doritos loco taco was a perfect dinner after paddling down a river all day. Until next time, Xo!
