January Monthly News

Welcome to the January edition of monthly news!
Happy new year to you all! I hope it's off to a great start. 
For me, it's been bittersweet. While this new year has essentially been nothing to complain about in my personal life, we have had a funeral to attend when an extended family member died. He was 93 though, so instead of being sad, we mostly celebrated his life. R.I.P. Henry.
A ton of famous people have died this year already too. Is it something in the air?!
I didn't really make any resolutions this year, per say, but I did decide that I wasn't reviewing anything I didn't absolutely need in my life. I guess it was consuming my life and I needed to step back a bit.
Did you make any resolutions? Have they stuck or dissolved already?

  1. I really want to read more by F. Scott Fitzgerald, because The Great Gatsby is one of my all time favorite books. That sandwich looks so delicious! :D

  6. I'm sorry for your family's loss. I'm glad you could celebrate his life. :) I've heard that The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is very short. I've only seen the movie and it's interesting to me that they made such a long movie out of such a short story.

  9. What a good month! I rec'd The Newsmakers, so it's on deck after the next book. I'm trying to break up my mystery/thrillers--I read a lot of them in the winter!

This is the eighth and final season.



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: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


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…
