My Reads

Oh No, I'm a book behind!! With my much needed Spring Break trip to California I didn't get a chance to blog about the last book I read!  Hopefully I can remember what it was about!

The last book I finished was Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin.

Heart of the Matter is really a story about two women who are strangers living opposite lives but will be brought together by a tragic accident.  Valerie, a lawyer and single mom, and Tessa, a stay at home mom married to a pediatric surgeon, Nick.  Valerie's son, Charlie is in a tragic accident and Tessa's husband is Charlie's surgeon.  During Charlie's hospital stay, Valerie begins to have more than friendly feelings for Charlie's surgeon.  For Tessa, staying at home isn't all she thought it was going to be and she begins to feel her marriage falling apart. Will Valerie and Nick cross that line? Can Tessa ever forgive Nick for what he has done?

While I was reading Valerie's view of the story, I found myself rooting for her, rooting for her to be loved, rooting for what could be.  But then I read Tessa's side of the story and found myself rooting for her, hoping she can keep her marriage and family together, keep the love she has. I found myself thinking about myself in both their situations wondering what I would do.  Would I cross that line for love?  Would I ever be able to forgive my husband for his mistake?  Of course no one ever really knows what they would do until they are in that situation and hopefully no one ever has to be.

So what are you reading?  I'm needing to add to my MUST read list!! I've also been considering getting an electronic reader, but I LOVE books.  I love a good hardcover book!  I love to read them and collect them.  In my dream house I have a library.  The walls are lined floor to ceiling with shelves and shelves of books.  I have a comfy chair where I can sit by the fire and read all day with a cup of hot chocolate.  Do I really want to give up my book buying?  I'm not sure.  What are your feelings on electronic readers?  And which one do you like, the Kindle or Nook?

Happy 8th Birthday Peyton!!

It's Peyton's 8th Birthday today!! Happy Birthday Buddy!! We had a great time celebrating during Spring Break in California!

Spring Break-What I'm packin'! Part 1

Daisy Dukes, Bikinis on top, Cancun, beer, frat boys, one night stands, MTV, Girls Gone Wild.  Isn't that what you think of when you think of Spring Break?  Well, remember I'm 30, with 4 kids, going to nursing school. NOT what my Spring Break is gonna be! And you DON'T want to see me in a bikini.  Remember the 4 kids?  Those were all by c-section! NOT PRETTY!

My Spring Break is taking my older two boys, 9 and 8, to visit my mom and brother in San Diego. On our list to do is: Disneyland, Sea World, mini golf, the beach, In N Out and sushi!! Far from the MTV type Spring Breaks.

While I study, I like to eat!  So I've gained a "little" weight.  I have a closet full of clothes and can hardly wear any of them.  So I like to buy accessories because buying clothes depresses me. (But I did have to buy a few new things because I didn't think I could wear my sweats in California!) Here's a few things that I'm bringing with me:

Jersey Scarf Necklace with Rosettes in Hot Pink
