Quick Pic: Summer Lounging


One of the first things we did upon moving to Columbia a week ago was to join a gym. It’s a must for us. My old gym membership had expired about two months before we moved so it had been a while since I took a group exercise class. Well, I did a BodyPump class yesterday and boy did my muscles take a beating! I am so sore! It’s that kind of sore where you don’t sit in seats, you fall into them. So, I’ve been doing pretty much nothing but lounging all day today, which includes reading The Lions of Little Rock by Kristin Levine. It’s a quick read so far!

Yay for sore muscles giving me an excuse to sit on my butt and do nothing but enjoy a good book!




Hello and Happy First Day of Summer!

As an educator, I simply adore summer. Summer means rest. Summer means fun. Summer means spending time with your husband or friends at 1 in the afternoon because you’re not at work. And last but not least summer means relaxing with a good book!

Today I’m sipping a cuppa tea, munching on Nilla wafers and reading The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson!

What does summer mean to you?


Just Finished: Born Wicked


Summer vacation is completely fabulous! I get to spend time with my husband and friends and do whatever I want because I don’t have to be at work! LOVE IT!!

So, with all this free time I’ve been reading (a lot!). Today I finished reading Born Wicked the first book in Jessica Spotswood’s Cahill Witch Chronicles. I really really liked this book a lot and my review will come soon!
