Really Good Reading

So, I have been quite busy lately, and as you can see, my blogging has suffered significantly. I just have not had time nor ideas to blog about. Until now. One of my friends and fellow Bloggers (yes Becky, I am talking about you) often writes about books she is reading, has read etc... and I think it is a splendid idea. So, I have decided to borrow the idea :) Just for today. Or maybe not.

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

I absolutely loved this book! This is the first book I have read by Sara Gruen and all I can say is that it is fantastically written, very engrossing and just an incredible story. As most of you may know, it has also been made into a movie which was released on April 22. The movie stars Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattison (aka Edward Cullen) and Christoph Waltz (the insanely psycho villian from Inglorious Basterds). I read this book at a rapid pace... I simply could not put it down. It has romance, mystery, evil and despair. I don't want to give anything away... all I can say is that it certainly is a must read event. Get ready to fall in love with Jacob Jakowski... and the circus. And elephants. 
And now, I leave you with this... an incredibly handsome photo of Christoph Waltz. He is so dreamy.

24 days and counting...

So, just thought I would share the exciting news.

No, I am not pregnant.

Now that that has been said, I am going to VEGAS!! And I know what you are all thinking? Didn't you just go? The answer is yes, I did. But I am going again... this time, with 2 of my close girlfriends, Kayley and Monica! We are leaving May 7th and coming home May 10th... 3 nights! I am SO excited! The average temperature in May is 31 degrees... that is reason enough to go! We are staying at TI Treasure Island and we are just looking forward to getting our tan on by the pool, doing a little shopping and having some great meals together. Not to mention, everything else Vegas will bring us. I simply cannot wait.

Sunshine has arrived. Hip hip hooray! We have been enjoying this weather by taking family walks and splashing in spring puddles. Entirely lovely.
