Sunday Social


1. Who do you call when you need to vent?
I talk to Ryan and if it has to do with Sophia I frequently call my mom.
2. Where do you go when you need alone time?
I get way more alone time right now than I need. I don't know that many people here and I stay-at-home with Sophia. I definitely don't need to go anywhere to be alone. 
3. What is your favorite alone time activity?
When I lived in my last house I loved taking baths. I had a big bath tub so it was nice. Now I usually read or watch a movie that's not a cartoon.
4. What is something we should all stop and read right now?
I read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" years ago. I didn't love the book, but I do remember thinking at the end that everyone should read it. The writing and plot wasn't something I typically enjoy, but the end will get to ya. 

5. Who do you wish would read your blog that doesn’t already? Family? Celeb?
Hmmmm. Hardly anyone reads my blog, but there are plenty of times I feel more than ok with that. I guess if there was a celeb I would want it to be someone that is a celebrity but one that seems "real". Honestly, I have no idea. I really like Tia and Tamera Mowry now that I see them more on their reality show. One of them would be cool. 

May Goals


Every goal on this list is completely possible, but the last 2 on here have been goals of mine for a long time.  Sophia's birthday is coming up. Her last preschool graduation. I just want to be sure I have that scrapbooking caught up before kindergarten starts. I sort of have a plan, but that's another post.

Kindle Freebie: Inescapable by Nancy Mehl

Several Fridays ago I mentioned that I was only now getting a smart phone. Everyone was right--I do love it. One of my favorite things has been the kindle app. When I am sitting at swim lessons or waiting for Sophia I can just pull out my phone to read. No carrying anything extra. Love it.

BUT those ebooks cost money. I only splurge on books I REALLY want. So, I have been reading the some of the freebies I have found. Here is one of them:

This book was really good. It's the first in the series (like many of the freebies on Kindle). The character is a young, single Mennonite that left her community after becoming pregnant. After making a life for herself things start to unravel and she has to return to the community for safety. She has to face her past that involves the community, her faith and her family. Of course there is a love story too. I'm normally put off by fiction books themed around Amish and Mennonite, but this one has me convinced I might be wrong.
