Book Review: Personality Plus

From the Back Cover:

Each of the following statements relates to one of the four basic personality types: Melancholy, Phlegmatic, Sanguine, and Choleric. Which of these statements do you relate to most? – Whether at home or work, I am well organized and keep everything in its proper place. – It’s difficult for me to express excitement, even about something that’s really important to me. – When shopping at the mall, it’s not unusual for me to forget where I parked the car. – I get annoyed when my employees don’t follow my instructions to the letter. In Personality Plus, Florence Littauer gives you valuable insight for appreciating your one-of-a-kind, God-given personality. She includes a Personality Profile test that reveals how your unique blend of traits affects your emotions, work performance, and relationships. Through humorous anecdotes and straightforward counsel, Personality Plus guides you to improve upon your strengths and correct your weaknesses. This engaging book also provides keys to understanding those around you. You’ll learn how to accept-and even enjoy-the traits that make each of us so different. Personality Plus is the tool you need to change your life, and the lives of those you care about, for the better. About the Author Florence Littauer is the best-selling author of Silver Boxes, Personality Plus for Couples, Personality Plus for Parents, and several other books. She speaks internationally at seminars and retreats and is the president of CLASS Speakers, Inc. She and her husband, Fred, live in California.

My Review:

 I highly recommend reading this book. Everyone is different and this book helps you understand why. I like how the author had their own stories in the book as well. The book explains 4 different personalities and gives great examples on how to work with each other. I had no idea I would like a book about personalities, but I feel like it has helped me become more aware of others and why they might be the way they are and that is helpful.

I enjoyed this book so much that I decided to give it a friend to read and we plan on using it as a giveaway in our face book group.

Book Review: Whiskey Surprises

Whiskey Surprises

by Jaqueline Snowe (Classic Curves #1)

Publication date: June 18th 2019 Genres: Adult, Contemporary,

Romance Description:

Five days of crazy no-strings sex. That was the deal. But when feelings sneak in, the risks are too high…

Fern Laughlin prefers two things to help deal with stress—whiskey or sex. The mysterious, handsome stranger at the hotel bar is the perfect combination and the best distraction before the night of her big event. After all, her job’s at stake—she has to raise revenue by five percent or she’s out of a career.

Rylan Cirula despises events like Silvas car shows but his late father’s wish was to get his ’67 Meridian certified in every category. Rylan follows through and is surprised to learn his amazing hookup was the vice-president of the company—and she’s not happy when he pursues her the next day.

She can’t afford any distractions during the show, but Rylan can’t get her out of his mind. She doesn’t care about his money and he doesn’t care about her aversion to relationships. Five days of crazy no-strings-attached sex. That’s the deal they strike.

But neither is prepared for feelings to find their way into the bedroom…

My Review:

Once I read what this book was going to be about. I started it right away and didn’t stop until I finished it. It only took me two days to finish. There was days of hot steamy sex, car shows, and maybe even a love story. Will Ryland and Fern just have 5 days of sex and no strings attacked? I was surprised to find out that the location of the book is right here in St. Louis where I LIVE! I knew exactly where the author was talking about on some of locations in the book. I enjoy books that you can use your imagination and picture everything that is happening. It was even better since I knew some of the locations that the author was talking about. Whiskey Surprises is a 5 star review for me. OH my did you see the cover.. nothing more screams sex. Not just sex, but HOT, Steamy sex.

Thanks for reading my review and I hope you enjoy the book too!

The Very Best of Virginia

I like Virginia, it’s called “Virginia is For Lovers”. Ironically this is where I found the love of my life! We have been together for 3 years now, and going strong.  

 

It has a few great things to do; including the beach, mountains, hiking trails, beautiful scenes, plenty of different areas to have parties, and if you love history this is the place for you etc. 

 

Also, Virginia is a great place because you don’t have to depend on anybody unless you cant drive, you can use your car to go places. However, there are plenty of Ubers and Lyfts you can depend on. 

 

A beautiful place (and free!) to visit is Maymont park. There is an animal area which had goats, chicken, pigs, cow, and much more you can pet and feed. 

 

Science museum has great scenes outside and inside to look at and take pictures. 

 

Lots of malls you can walk around, shop, and beautiful picture opportunities as well. Including this fountain it has turf around where people just sit and relax or read and people watch (my favorite). 

 

Virginia Beach is a great to get some sun, relax, and walk on the board walk. They all kinds of pizza parlors, shopping stops, and almost 3 mile board walk; that also has a little fair every summer to ride ride’s and eat funnel cakes. 

 

Virginia always had a new restaurant getting built. We went to a new burger place a week ago and I can give them a 5 out of 5 stars! 

 

Gettysburg is a wonderful place to view the mountains. Including a get university James Madison University. 

 

Last but definitely not least, there is plenty of space to have a party. Whether it’s a birthday party, get together, or a wedding reception you count on somewhere to be available.  

 

Virginia has every season, during the summer it’s hot, fall it’s beautiful and breezy (my fav season), winter it’s cold and snows, and during the spring we have blooming flowers and just enough rain to make the leaves grow pretty. 

 

I would recommend visiting Virginia!!

Magnolia Road Book Review

BOOK DETAILS: Magnolia Road by J. Lynn Bailey (Granite Harbor #3) Publication date: January 29th 2019 Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Description: On the outside, Bryce Hayes is satisfied with the structure of her life, her demanding career, and series of no-strings-attached relationships, but her brother bounces in and out of rehab, her mother thinks she can beat her son’s addiction, and her father is simply doing what he can to keep a semblance of “normal”. When Bryce’s father, Congressman Hayes, orders her to Granite Harbor, Maine, due to a string of threats to their family coming from an unidentifiable source, she doesn’t expect Ethan Casey, the sexy soldier who slept with her, then walked out, without so much as a goodbye, to be her landlord. Ethan’s past is riddled with chaos, bullets, and loud noise. After returning to his small town after the war, he’s determined to get back to his roots. Peace, quiet, and working as a game warden for the Maine Warden Service sounds right as rain. But with Bryce in Granite Harbor, staying in his house on Magnolia Road, Ethan can’t stop thinking about his future—and that includes Bryce. But to make things right with the love of his life, he’ll have to open old wounds…and risk losing her forever. Note to readers, each book can be read as a stand alone.

MY REVIEW:

Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. My husband came into the room and turned off the lights because it was bed time, not once but TWICE! I even took the book with me to work so I could read it on my lunch break. I enjoyed the small town love story, but inside that love story there were struggles including PTSD and Addition. I felt something for each character and enjoyed the build up of how it ended. I like how I knew something about each character and when a new one was introduced it was not too little information about the person there was just the right amount and how they intertwine with the main characters. My most favorite part of this book is when Ethan is with James and James’s says “You can’t control life, Ethan. The only things you can control are your attitudes and your actions. Everything else, you’re powerless. You can’t control how love works. You aren’t that powerful” . That part is so real, truthful and powerful to me and hopefully others. Which is why I typed it out in my review. I do recommended reading this book and I know that this is the third book in her series and plan on reading the others soon.

Thank you for taking the time and reading!

The Very Best of Oklahoma

The great state of Oklahoma is known for its many casino’s and tornadoes, but I want to reassure you that it has so much more to offer than it’s very shiny, very flashy gambling facilities and unthinkable weather.

Oklahoma is the home much of our countries Native America history, it has some of the most beautiful state parks, museums and festivals full of so much history and yes of course, those casino’s everyone is talking about. I want to make sure that I give you a glimpse of some of the parts of Oklahoma that are not common knowledge, some inside local advice if you will.

Fun Facts About Oklahoma!

Let’s start off with some fun facts, shall we?

  • The world’s first installed parking meter was in Oklahoma City, on July 16, 1935
  • Okmulgee owns the world record for largest pecan pie, pecan cookie, pecan brownie, and biggest ice cream and cookie party
  • Garth Brooks was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He grew up in Yukon, Oklahoma.
  • At around 200, Oklahoma has more man-made lakes than any other state.

More than Casino’s and Tornadoes

Did you see that, Garth Brooks was born and raised in this amazing state. The rumor is Nashville the place to be, but in reality Oklahoma’s your best bet if you want to make as a country singer. Need more proof than the King of Country, well there is also Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood, Ronnie Dunn, and many more so hurry on over aspiring country singers were waiting for you! All joking aside I want to make sure that you understand how truly incredible Oklahoma really is.

How to Get Around

With a perfect combination of city and country, Oklahoma is a center spot to meet all personality types. Depending on which part of the state you choose to state can determine the transportation style you want to choose also. While, I highly recommend driving or renting a car while visiting Oklahoma because of the relaxed nature of the state, however there are some areas like Oklahoma City that have public transportation. Unlike some states, Oklahoma does not normally have a ton of traffic and we have plenty of parking, so that should not be a problem either.

Route 66

If you have ever wanted to take a road trip, Route 66 is one of the most well known historical routes in the United States. Oklahoma is right in the heart of this beautiful history. So you can enjoy a great road trip see some historical town and follow the best of Route 66.

State Parks

Oklahoma is home to many beautiful state parks, each with its very own unique charm that has a lasting affect on those who visit them. If you are looking for an unforgettable nature experience you can find an array of activities such as lodging, fishing, swimming, hiking, Kayaking and hunting at most if not all of the Oklahoma State Parks.

My families favorite Oklahoma state parks to visit is Beavers Bend.

Beavers Bend

Beavers Bend is a wonderful place for nature lovers of all ages and is located in the mountainous region of southeast Oklahoma along the shores of Broken Bow Lake and the Mountain Fork River.  It is a wonderful place to slow down, unwind and enjoy the beauty and nature that Oklahoma has to offer. Whether you enjoy the luxurious glam-ping experience or the one with nature experiences, you can find it here.

Beavers bend offers many different options for luxury cabin rentals. These cabins are beautiful, spacious and modern. Most offer a extra amenities such as hot tubs on the balcony, playground equipment for the kids, and full kitchens, which makes our stay so much more relaxing. We have booked our cabins through several different cabin rentals in the past, but our favorite, hassle free choice is Beavers Bend Adventures.

Beavers Bend also provides tent/RV camping, along with many other activities and rental services. Some activities that you can participate in are:

  • Biking
  • Canoeing/Rafting/Kayaking
  • Various children’s Programs
  • River Fishing
  • Golf
  • Hiking
  • Horseback Riding
  • Swimming
  • Tennis Court
  • Watchable Wildlife
  • Rock and Mineral finding
  • And More

For more information on activities, camping information and prices visit the Beavers Bend State Park Information website.

Places To Eat Near Beavers Bend

When you visit this amazing state park, you can always cook yourself, but if you want to enjoy some great dining experiences here are two of my favorite places.

The Grateful Head

This groovy pizza joint is a neat change of scenery. Their menu is fully loaded with oddly creative recipes that are worth trying. I recommend the “tree hugger” or the “funky chicken,” both are amazing! For the not so adventurous type, you can make your own safe pizza.

Blue Rooster

This is my favorite place to eat, it is not only a fun place, but the food and service has always been great. The Blue Rooster serves fried anything you can think of, family style. We always walk away satisfied. Another thing I love is that it is a great place for kids, they roll out a piece of paper to cover the table and the kids (and adults) stay entertained until the food is served. This is a must try!

The Gathering Place

Not too long ago, Facebook went crazy about a place called the Gathering place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The reviews were amazing, the captions read that it was equivalent to Disney World, but free. I want to tell you, it is a pretty amazing place. We recently went and our kids had an amazing time and I highly recommend it.

There is something to do for all ages, and I mean ALL ages. I found my husband in the play area’s, “testing” the safety of the slides several times.

We got to the park at 9 am and the park was relatively empty. We did not have to fight large crowds of people to enjoy any part of the park. We spent the day climbing ropes, playing in the sand, making tornadoes, climbing in sitting pods and swinging on zip lines, the possibilities were endless!

From a Mom’s Point of View

It was definitely the place to be full of fun and excitement for all member’s of the family. As as a mom I value some parts of the park that my kids or even my husband would never have thought about. There were several bathrooms throughout the park and the were so CLEAN. My children visit the bathrooms a lot, I am certain we went to them all and everyone of them were very well maintained.

The parking was plentiful! now it appeared to get a little busy when we were leaving in the afternoon. Even then though, there were many parking options, unlike some places that you visit. This is always a nice way to start off your trip.

The play area’s were themed and backed by education. I LOVE when my kids are learning while they play. There is an interactive part of the park where you can make tornadoes, learn about music, sounds and echos… We spent quite a bit of time in this area, just trying to figure it all out. The coolest part is that it was designed into a maze, so that alone kept my children busy.

The Thought Behind It

I was fascinated with the amount of thought that was put into creating such an amazing park. The toddler area was not only size appropriate, but the color schemes, the theme and deliberately placement so that parents can see their children was mind blowing and quite honestly, relieving. There was a sand are where toddlers could play and a soft padded ground area.

The bigger play areas had the same thought behind it. The themes were so uniquely interesting. It was not something you have seen over and over again. They put forth the effort to match the theme to the play. The crazy slides were located at the “inventors” play area, the green hanging pods where located in the tree play area, the maze was the theme of the arts and science play area… They put a lot of effort into making sure it was a great experience.

Other’s Amenities

We spent most of our time in the play areas, but there were several other amenities as well. There was a skate park, kids activities and so much more.

They also have a couple eating options with plenty of healthy options that even the kids will love. They have an option to eat outside on the lawn, on picnic tables and inside in the cafe. The prices were a little higher than we normally like to pay, but for free entry they have to make money somewhere.

They do allow you to bring in coolers and outside food. We brought snacks and a small cooler full of drinks and a lunch for my dietary restricted daughter in to the park and had no issues.

In conclusion…

Oklahoma is a great place to visit if you are looking for a slower pace relaxing visit. It is not only full of so much history, culture, nature and fun. I highly encourage Oklahoma as a place to visit for all ages.

An Unexpected Turn Book Review and Giveaway

An Unexpected Turn Book Review

What the book is about:

“When I take a good look at my reflection, I’m surprised that the face looking back at me in the mirror doesn’t look different than the one I’ve seen staring back at me for the last 27 years. I see the same brown hair and brown eyes, the same heart-shaped face, the same upturned nose. I feel like I should look different. That my face should show the upheaval and the weight of the last day, that it should somehow show how much has happened, how the course of my life has changed, but everything is still the same.”

Life is rarely ever predictable. It is rarely even kind. But… sometimes… just sometimes, those unexpected turns that throw you into the chaos and upheaval of loss lead you to the exact place you need to be.

This is a story about love, but it isn’t a romance. It is about holding on when it would be easier to let go, about fighting for those that can’t fight for themselves. It is about finding and creating family through the unpredictable, beautiful mess that is life.

My Review

I love everything about this book. It was written very well and it held my interest. I read it in a weekend! There were unexpected twist and turns. I needed to know what was going to happen next! This is a true love story that is very real and unpredictable. I personally even felt connected to characters in this novel that I needed to know what was going to happen next.

I do recommended reading this book. I think even if you are not into love stories this one will keep your interest and make you wonder what you would do in the same situation. This book can and might make you feel emotional, but isn’t that what we want!

Biography

TJ is a slightly sane artist, amateur photographer, book addict, wife and mom who has more hobbies than she can count, so it is beyond shocking that she manages to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents she claims, writing wasn’t one of them until her muse dropped the idea for a book on her head.
