Thankful November Day 4

Today I am thankful for my J-O-B, yes I said job! Everyday I get to wake up and help another person where I work at! Do I like it everyday, NO, but its still there and I still get joy out of it.

I work as a medical assistant in a doctors office and my favorite part is getting to know my patients. I have been there for 10 years and I feel like we have grown old together! haha! Am I old? HECK NO, but I sometimes feel like it! I am very thankful that I have a job because not everyone does.

Working full time gives me benefits that I know that not everyone has. Health, dental, and so much more.

Thanks for reading. What are you thankful for today?

Thankful November Day 2

Today I am thankful for dolphins. I will never forget seeing the dolphin shows that I have seen and how talented they are! I bet I could watch one every day!

For our honeymoon we swam with the dolphins it was a dream come true!

I love seeing them in the ocean as well! They are super intelligent!

Here are some interesting facts:

-There are 44 different species.

– They typically only give birth to one calf.

– They do not use their teeth to chew.

– They communicate with clicks and whistles.

– Dolphins stay awake for weeks.

– Dolphins call each other by name which are their whistles.

– A super-pod can consist of over 1,000 dolphins.

Thankful November Day 1

Today I am thankful for the Ocean. Not only is the ocean beautiful and world wide it also has a purpose! The ocean is the Earth’s life support pretty much! It is the number one source of protein for more than a billion people. The ocean regulates our climate, absorbs carbon dioxide, holds 97% of Earth’s water, and supports the greatest abundance of life on our planet.

My husband and I got married on the beach and it was breathtaking! That day was such a wonderful day!

While not all beaches look the same, they all have one thing in common…. WATER and inside the water there is wild life! I love to see fish, turtles, stingrays, sharks, and dolphins. Did you know that there is a World Ocean Day? It is June 8th every year and it is to remind us why we need to take care of the ocean. Someday I will go to a World Ocean Day event!

So in conclusion you can see that the Ocean does very much for the world and that is why I am thankful for it! Plus, it is a very relaxing place and I cannot wait to live by one someday!

Please share with me what you are thankful for today. You can leave your blog in the comments or you can link it back to mine. I just want to encourage everyone to be thankful every day! Thank you for participating!

Book Review: WaterColor Wishes


WaterColor Wishes 
Melissa Chambers 
Publication date: August 20th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Description: Marigold Appleton was made for the laid-back beach life of picturesque WaterColor, Florida. Unfortunately, her bank account was not. She’s about to lose her gift shop due to her hidden location. When the town which rarely allows hotels announces they are designating a plot of land for one, Marigold convinces her father to bid on the land and build one of his boutique hotels on it so she can move her shop into it. But also bidding on the same plot of land is property developer and insanely hunky Dane Knight. She’s got to keep her guard up, because his interest in her may be only to get her to drop her bid for the land. She just wishes he wasn’t the first guy in years to make her knees buckle.

For weeks, Dane has been trying to get the girl he met at the bonfire out of his brain. As she crystalizes in front of him at the bar of the WaterColor clubhouse, he knows his daydreams of her didn’t stack up to the real thing. But he just got out of a poisonous relationship. His ex has a bad habit of dropping her kids off without notice, and he’s too big of a sucker for them to say no. A relationship with Marigold is out of the question. But after he gives in to his weakness for her for the first time, he knows he’s never going to be able to get her out of his heart.

My Review:

WaterColor Wishes was my first book I read by Melissa Chambers and let me just tell you I want to read the rest of her series! This is the fourth book in her series: Love Along 30a. 30A is on the panhandle of Florida. If  you have never been there, I highly recommend it! I have been there and the beach are the atmosphere is great!
Dane met Marigold at a bond fire and has not stopped thinking about her. One night Dane and his twin brother are at a bar and see Marigold. You will not believe what happens during this section! It will make you question if they can even have a relationship.  Marigold has a gift shop that is not doing the best due to location, but Dane save the day when he came to help her with a costume contact with the kids. Marigold was surprised by how well Dane worked with kids that it threw red flags out there. Dane comes with baggage, but I am not going to tell you how, you will have to read and find out.I do like how the book had each of them work throughout their lives and how it would have been done in real life. This book was so good it could be turned into a film.
I highly recommend reading it and I plan on reading more of the series soon!

Thanks for reading my review!

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!!
