Happy HALLOWEEN weekend to you all!


I'm posting early, as I have to work, then it's a fun night in store!
Sadly I have no book to share this week. I am just about to begin a book, but haven't touched it yet. 

Halloween is my favorite day of the year so I am allowed to slack off right?! I'll leave you with a photo of my costume... Share a link in the comments if you post your costume. I'd love to see them!

No BB this week.



Q:  Do you read classics? If so, what was your favorite?

A: I do read classics, though, I've not read many. One of my favorite books of all time is To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, but another is East of Eden by John Steinbeck. Both for obviously different reasons. The first has teachings that will always be prevalent. The latter is a family saga that stuck with me since reading it. It was epic!

  6. Love the costume. For work we dressed up as Snap Crackle and Pop (I was Crackle) then I was a princess elf for my friends D&D theme porch party.

    I just saw To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway, it was fabulous. I also love East of Eden, but more the movie than the book.

  8. I love your costume. :-) My daughter wore her Wonder Woman costume to her the Halloween event at her dance studio, but she was haunted beauty for Halloween itself. I hope you had a great Halloween!

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.

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…
