Intro Teaser Tuesdays

Introduction

I've been called a lot of names in my twenty-nine years of living. Daughter, friend, enemy, brat, girlfriend, partner, confidante, compadre, liar, genius, cynic, liberal, goddess, and, of course, the oldie but goodie (and still quite effective): boy, you're a stubborn pain-in-the-ass.


It was a decade and a half later when I found myself in desperate need of my regular chair in my grandma's kitchen. But I was eight states away from Texas, so instead of taking a seat and resting my head on the cool countertop, I did a lot of aimless walking in search of a comfort I could not yet name.

  9. This sounds really interesting. It's got that light, easy, Southern swing to it. I've been trying to read more Southern novels since about 6 months ago when I got hooked reading Capote, Faulkner, and Harper Lee. Here's my TT link: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-17E

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic.

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…
