Happy 17th Birthday Brenna!

Posted March 3, 2016 by Rowena in Family | 2 Comments

17 years ago, Brenna was born and my life was forever changed.

Every year, she grows more and more into her own person and I am so stinkin’ proud of the young woman she is today. She is one of the sweetest, funniest and easy going people that I have ever met and her sunny disposition makes her a constant favorite of everyone she comes across.


Happy Birthday to my favorite cotton picker looking, makes me laugh until my sides hurt, pisses me off over the smallest of things but is the very best part of me kid, Brenna. I love you more than you know and am so proud that you’re my kid. You’re a blessing to everyone that knows you and I hope you have an amazing day.

Brenna 17

…and with you out of the playoffs, you guys can definitely go to Justin Bieber this month! Turn up!

Week in Books (13)

Posted March 1, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

week-in-books

sad face
It’s been a couple of days since Redondo lost to West in the semi finals and I’m still not over it. I should be because there’s always next year, right? But ugh, it’s freaking West. I hate that damn school.

We’re out of the running for another CIF Championship ring this year but life moves on right? Hell, I hope so. The girls are already planning for next season so that’s something, right? Yep.

Now…on to the books.

Currently Reading

Because of Miss Bridgerton
Because of Miss Bridgerton (Rokesbys #1) by Julia Quinn.

Sometimes you find love in the most unexpected of places…

This is not one of those times.

Everyone expects Billie Bridgerton to marry one of the Rokesby brothers. The two families have been neighbors for centuries, and as a child the tomboyish Billie ran wild with Edward and Andrew. Either one would make a perfect husband… someday.

Sometimes you fall in love with exactly the person you think you should…

Or not.

There is only one Rokesby Billie absolutely cannot tolerate, and that is George. He may be the eldest and heir to the earldom, but he’s arrogant, annoying, and she’s absolutely certain he detests her. Which is perfectly convenient, as she can’t stand the sight of him, either.

But sometimes fate has a wicked sense of humor…

Because when Billie and George are quite literally thrown together, a whole new sort of sparks begins to fly. And when these lifelong adversaries finally kiss, they just might discover that the one person they can’t abide is the one person they can’t live without…

I just finished my last book (I didn’t like it at all) and have yet to start this book but it’s my plan to start this book on my lunch hour today. Wish me luck!

Read

Sweet Seduction by Daire St. Denis | 2 out of 5
Fully Ignited (Boston Fire #3) by Shannon Stacey | 3.5 out of 5
The CEO’s Unexpected Child by Andrea Laurence | 2 out of 5
The Forbidden Temptation by Anne Mather | 1 out of 5

I read a bunch of duds this week so hands down my favorite read goes to Fully Ignited by Shannon Stacey. No more Harlequin categories for me. They just don’t do a damn thing for me.

Reviewed

I don’t have any new reviews up at Book Binge since the last one I posted last week. I need to get to work on that since I have a lot of reviews to write. Maybe next week…:)

New

I didn’t buy anything this week but that’s probably going to change in the next day or so. I just remembered there was a book that I wanted to get but I can’t remember what the book was. Ehh, I’m getting old.

For Review

Ignite by Karen Erickson

There you have it, my week in books. How did your week go?

This week’s MCM is a guy that is just too beautiful not to notice. I mean, come on…look at this guy.

Very, very nice eye candy. With each football hottie that comes across my radar, I’m starting to wonder why I don’t watch football.
