I'm taking a break from the Internet for a while. I'll still look but I'm not going to post. My Facebook though will be deleted.


Manic Mondays.

This could be about my MANICures or it could be about MANIC moods. Or both. 

We'll go with several manicure pictures that haven't been posted on here.

Here's some red from.... Day 1 of a 31 day nail challenge I never did. 

The idea there did not turn out the way I wanted. 



I need to write about this:

And this:

This too:

Maybe one day.


Big Lots softlips haul and a surprise in the mail!

The other day I was at work and needed some lip balm. I went to go buy my favorite kind, Softlips and we apparently had stopped selling them. I ended up buying Chapstick Mixstix and another Chapstick dual ended chapstick but I didn't like either of them. I didn't have my regular fruity or vanilla softlips lip balm because they had all melted in the car or had just disappeared during the move. As luck would have it... I ended up at Big Lots the following day...

Here's what I bought:

The jellybean one came in a single pack and was also a dollar like the flavor fusions up there. 

I went to another Big Lots today and bought 2 more packs for backups. I bought another jellybean and the combo pack of vanilla and birthday cake. I thought about buying the sugar cookie and cherry one too but decided 9 lip balms were good enough and I just need to remember not to leave them in the car anymore. 

Last Monday I received a small package in the mail from my dad. I had no idea what he had sent me but I was excited. I opened it up and there were a bunch of keys in it. I love skeleton keys and my dad had gone through his trinket box and found the keys and sent them to me. There was 4 skeleton keys and 1 key shaped keychain from NC. 

The large one at the end is now on my necklace. 

Oh and here's 2 pictures I took at Big Lots today showing all the lip balms they have.

I'm still tempted to go back and get some more backups. $1 and $1.50 for them is a great price. They're normally $3.99 for a single pack. I think I also want to get the strawberry and banana combo up there. I do like strawberry I'm just hesitant about the banana part. I'm also sorry they're so blurry, they were taken with my phone.


Super sleepy. + books.

I am tired. I was super hyper but I took my sleeping pill. Lol so now I'm falling asleep. I finished the book Three Sisters. It was really good. I recommend it. I wasn't sure what book to read next. I'm going with: 
I've had this book for over a year!! Maybe even 2. But I just would never read it. Then a 2nd one came out. I didn't buy it though but I was like well I need to get on this and read it. Now there's going to be a movie made for the home for peculiar children next year with it expected to be in theaters in 2016. So I figure I need to read it first!!!!! 

Some other books I've read recently are: 

The 3 flower ones called "In The Garden" trilogy and the first is Blue Dahlia, then Black Rose and lastly is Red Lily. Really good series. Dark Witch is number one of three but it was slow reading for me. I just couldn't get engrossed.... Then I finished the book after about 6 weeks of just reading it here and there. It did get better at some point but not enough that I'm going to start the next one just yet. But I will. I have the 2nd in the series and the 3rd comes out in I think October. 

I've read almost all of the books by Karen White. I love her books. This one is the last one in a series of 4. It was all very awesome. She mixes new with old. Like it could be an old house with ghosts and secrets. It could be old love letters. It's just awesome. All her books are like that.

I'm pretty sure I read these but my mind is drawing a blank on both of them. Uugggg!!!!! But I love Lisa Scottoline now almost as much as I love Karen White. 

I've read Cradle (it was slow reading too) and I think I read a soft place to land, started reading the orchid house but I think I got distracted by a different new book and didn't pick it back up.

These were awesome.

Come Home was great but I can't quite remember how Sister was.

Most of the books in that picture I haven't read, I read the garden of happy endings, memory thief, cradle, maybe I read a soft place to land and nothing in the top stack. I also started to read Castaways but didn't finish it either. I THINK these unread books are in a box labeled as such so I want to bring them into the house and start reading them so that I maybe don't buy as many new ones now. I bought 3 more on Friday I think. =) 

I just finished reading Susan Mallery's Three Sisters. It's a really good book.  I bought it over a year ago. The 3 new ones are Shadow Falls, Night Owl and Nora Robert's the perfect boyfriend. It is number 2 of 3 and I had 1 and 3 so I had to complete the series. Lol. 

Okay. Time to read about 3 pages and pass out. Maybe on Thursday I'll go through the barn and look for my unread books and make a post about them.

Does anyone have any recommendations for me?? When I get a large portion of my unreads done, I might buy Harry Potter and start reading them. What do you think??
