Summer Reading

I love to read but I really don't make enough time to actually sit down with a book. I have made it my mission this summer to do as much reading as I can. I try to read during my lunch break at work and instead of watching TV before bed, I have been reading instead. I will admit that I have been sleeping a lot better. I have no idea if the two are related. ha!
I wanted to share two books that I have read this month that are totally worth taking out the time to read. "Heaven is for Real" and "The Hunger Games". The first book will make you laugh and cry, it gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. It's an awesome book about a 4 year old boy who has to have emergency surgery. During the surgery he goes to Heaven and comes back. Months later his parents pick up on little comments that he makes and it all comes out. SUCH. A. GOOD. BOOK.

"The Hunger Games" more or less replaced my obsession with Twilight. I would have to say that it is almost equally as good. I just finished the first book last night and started the second. I have really enjoyed reading instead of drowning myself in TV. ha!




Thanks for stopping by!

Five Question Friday

It's Friday and I couldn't be more happy! I haven't done a 5QF post in a while and I feel like you might want to know five more things about me. ha! ;)


1. If you knew your best friend's spouse was cheating on her or him, would you tell her (him)?
That's a situation I hope to never be in. On one hand I would feel like it's my duty as a best friend to spill the beans. But on the other hand, I would want to stay out of it. I couldn't imagine having to tell someone that.

2. Soda in a can or a bottle?
Neither. I like it is a cup

3. What do you wash first, hair or body?
Hair first. I feel like if I wash my body first then all of the hair gunk would make me dirty again when I rinsed. weird?

4. What advice would you give to any new mama?
Seeing as I am not a Mama myself, I really wouldn't have anything to offer a new Mama

5. What is your best hangover remedy?
A cheeseburger and large DP from Sonic! Makes everything better!

Have a great weekend!

What I've Been Up To

I have totally been a bad Mama to my blog. Neglect is the only word that really comes to mind. I thought that I would use this post to tell you what I have been up to lately. The answer to that is not a whole lot and I've been busy at the same time. Try and keep up here. I have been really busy but at the same time I have lacked motivation to do anything. Maybe it's the sweltering heat out there. It just makes me kinda...lazy. Yeah, lazy. ha!



Last week my cousins were in town for a baseball tournament. Apparently they are super good baseball players. I wouldn't know because they live in Houston and I haven't seen them in like a million years. When they were babies I used to go stay with them to babysit for the whole weekend so my Aunt and Uncle could go out and have fun. They aren't babies anymore...


It was a weird feeling to look up to them. ha!

Last weekend we did stuff around the house. Our friends who live down the street called us to come over and grill out. It was really nice to just sit on their back patio and talk and laugh. We are so glad that we moved closer to friends :)


Last night my girl Britney came to town. I took one of my friends that had never been to a Britney concert. Not only did we get to see Britney but Nicki Minaj opened for her! We had a blast! It was a late night and I'm dragging today but oh so worth it!


Much Love,

Jess

The 4th

We had a really good weekend. It's kind of late to be talking about the weekend since it is Thursday, but oh well. I haven't really been in the blogging mood lately and I can't really put my finger on why. Maybe because I have been so busy at work and at home that I just needed a break.
Anywoodles....
On Friday night we went over to a friend's house to celebrate his graduation. We had a great time and it was nice to see all of our friends.

We spent Saturday getting ready for my parent's annual 4th of July BBQ. I cooked all day long. I was totally worn out but it was well worth it. Sunday was the party and we had a lot of people show up. It was a blast. The kids were in the pool and the adults were standing around consuming adult beverages. ha! Even my Mema came out to party!! I love her!

Much Love,
Jess
