Settling into the gondola, Dale tentatively stated, "I should tell you how much I spent on your ring." Based on his tone, I slowly turned to face him, not wanting to know how far we would be set back by the mammoth stone I was sporting.

  4. Aah wedding rings! They can be such a sensitive thing, I mean, what if he picks the wrong one? Or in this case, spends ridiculous amounts of money? Well, you've definitely captured my attention with this one Freda! Thanks for hosting :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  8. Why, I wonder, would the cost of the ring come up when the couple is on a gondola ride? I hope you are enjoying the book. Happy reading!

  9. That's one of the many reasons I don't have an engagement ring! The idea of spending enough to set us back made me ill. This looks like a fun read!

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.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
hoped to feel again. But when she turns out to be the sister of the man
he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
her heart? Or the heady temptation of his stolen-and sizzling-kisses?
Scandal has followed the duke since the war. Now the greatest shock of
all is on its way-the one that can separate Garrett and Kate forever.
