REVIEW:
This book is such a useful tool for people who want to learn how to have work-family balance. These tips that Tricia gives the reader are geared to mom's who raise children and work from home, however, these tips can be used by anyone, male or female. These are just guidelines you can try, to see what works and what doesn't work for you. Your days will not always go as smoothly as planned, and some of the tips shared in this book help you to manage through those times with more ease.
Having faith in God, yourself and your loved ones helps, as long as you believe it does. This book helped me to realize that not every day will go right or even meet the expectations you may have, but with faith, patience and love, you can get through anything.
I definitely think this book is beneficial to anyone who is need of balance and works from home. The book has great tips and resources to figure out what your balance is and how to implement it.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
