"So what now, Ana?" José shouts at me over the noise.
"Kate and I are moving to Seattle. Kate's parents have bought a condo there for her."
"Dios mio, how the other half live. But you'll be back for my show?"
"Of course, José, I wouldn't miss it for the world." I smile, and he puts his arm around my waist and pulls me close.

  1. I haven't decided whether or not I want to read FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY. Reviews seem to be mixed. But I did enjoy your excerpt.

  2. Fifty Shades of Grey is one I have not read - I have deliberately avoided it but I don't really know why. No doubt curiosity will get the better of me and I will read it because EVERYONE else I know has! lol :)

  6. Popular title, and similar lyrics by Billy Joel and the Monkees as well. I've always liked the expression, shades of gray. I'm glad Ana isn't going to miss his show! lol

  9. Interesting enough snippet, but I'll probably not be reading these books. I don't think I'd enjoy them that much really. Hope you enjoy them, though.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
