Thankful November Day 7

Today I am thankful for my iPhone. Yes, I said iPhone! While I know not everyone has an iPhone and there is that whole debate with the iPhone and android users, I am still thankful that we can pretty much use the internet anywhere we go with our phones.

Think about how much it has changed over the last 10 years. Many things are right at our fingertips now and can be checked within minutes. Need to know how to get to the park? Need to know where your loved one is? Need to know how much money you have in your checking? Need to talk to someone, but you also want to see their face? All of that can be done now! For that I am thankful for iPhones and technology!

Thankful November Day 6

Today I am thankful for my car. I am lucky enough to have heat, air conditioning and bluetooth. While it might not be my dream car, it is mine. I own it and it safely gets me from a to b!

My husband and my car are both paid off. Mine was first then his was just this past month. He has a great car too! He even has an Instagram for his Car!

We are hoping that our next vehicle we can pay cash for. I really like not having to make a car payment.

Thankful November Day 5

Today I am thankful for my house, my home. I get to come home after work and be comfortable. I know not everyone has that and I am very thankful for it. When it is cold outside I have heat and when it is hot outside I have the air conditioner. I have a kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedrooms and so much love inside of our home. I am very lucky to have a place to call my own. I do not rent, I own. It is mine, I can decorate how I want. My husband and I have remodeled the entire place to make it ours.

Dinning Room
Kitchen to the left and standing desk in the center.
Kitchen
Living room.

My family and I live in a condo and we have common grounds that we can play on. We do not have to cut the grass we have people do that and when I was single that was super helpful because ya know cutting grass is hard work!

To me there is a difference between the place you live and a home. A home is what is inside and no I don’t mean the furniture I mean the people inside. The ones you connect with daily. I am very lucky to have a loving husband and son!

Our bedroom
Ethans bedroom
Relaxing and taking a break from the blues game.

Thanks for taking the time to read. What are you thankful for today?

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!

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.

Giveaway

TJ gifted this book to, so I plan on gifting it to a reader! Thank you for reading and please comment and share this post to be entered!

The only thing I ask is that you share it after you read it also and update me with photo’s of who has read the book. Please sign the inside with your name and/or anything else you might want to add to it.

This will run from May 31,2019- June 30,2019.
