(These pictures were of the beautiful sun set the other day 🙂 I do love where I live! it can be so beautiful)
Hey all my happy readers! I gotta say this first~ HOLY SHIZZNIT!! I got more than 20 followers hahahaha I kinda did a little jump up and down in my chair!!! I had a great New Years Holiday! I spent one night with my best girl friends from High School (we’ve all know each other since we were like 5), and the New Year’s Eve & New Years in New Orleans for the Saints Game! See 🙂
I appologize to all my followers who are Carolina Pather fans…. CUZ WE SMASHED YA!! hahahaha ok sorry, I can’t help it sometimes 🙂 and yes, at 10 am, we south Louisiana people drink like we are stupid- and continue this way into the night! (ok not me, I am not a big drinker, and I just had surgery, so no chance taking here)! And yes, we eat like this all the time (it’s why we are all fat and happy in Louisiana– nobody has food like us!!!) & yes, we fry just about anything!! Bourbon Street was way too wild to go out, so the balcony was our hang out! Don’t get me wrong, we can all party like it’s 1999, but I needed a personal bubble around me, cuz having a breast reduction surgery means DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT WALKING CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH ME!!! hahaha but everything is really great with the surgery!!! I am healing very well, better than they expected! and I can drive now, still a box car rental, which my mom & I have named the Beenie Weenie Wagon (hahahaha it’s a Nissan Versa Hatchback) with NOTHING in it…. I gotta manually do everything (windows, locks, gas-I miss my cruise control)!!!! I know, I should not complain, but boy I miss my Honda CRV! For all of you who wrote such nice “get well” comments on my last post, I was fine (I had a few bruises), but I was in a 5 car pile up & I was #3, so my car was smashed 🙂 no worrying, I promise, I am all good 🙂 but boy is it a head ache to deal with all this non sense ! 🙂
Now, I wanted to share this with you….. First, my lil man got a Christmas present & he loves it, so here’s Xander and his new monkey….
To the Good STUFF!!!
I got my very first ARC book to review…. check it out! & it’s hard back!!

Getting Back to Give Aways!!!

I have started picking some out already & my stack keeps getting bigger & bigger!!! like holy crap ya know!!! I have decided to do two things… for some series I like I am gunna buy all the e-books (since I now have a kindle fire) and give away each series in hard copy (paperback/hard back)… and some series, I just really like so I’ma give away some e-books of those cuz I just wanna 🙂 but that is for the month of February, since I have a ton of stuff to catch up on, and I know everyone is reading the Christmas books too!
