It had been nearly ten days since my birthday dinner at Chipper's, but a number of times, I had thought about the boy who was so handsome and had smiled so much at me. I replayed his "Happy birthday" in my mind and imagined him discovering who I was and where I lived.

  6. I didn't know about this V.C. Andrews book. It's been a while since I read anything of hers. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I haven't read many of the new "VC Andrews" books. I got tired of the whole exact same story thing. But that is an interesting quote!

  8. The title and cover grabbed me right away, and your Friday56 made me wonder why she's obsessing about the boy (a stranger!) who smiled at her. I'm curious.

  10. I haven't read any of her books in so long. Flowers in the Attic was so creepy. Now I'm curious if the guy will find her.

  11. The title and that cover -- I feel apprehensive with the thought of reading it. But the quote ... so like a girl :)

  12. I was just talking to someone about VC Andrews and Flowers in the Attic. I read it forever ago and still have nightmares every once in a while. I'm interested in hear how this one stacks up in your opinion.

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



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.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
