A Good Read

I've always loved reading. When I read a good book it's like my mind creates a movie just for me to watch. I will actually see the characters in the book come to life in my mind.. hopefully that doesn't make me sound too nutty. :)
One of my favorite writers is Nicholas Sparks... because I'm a girl. But once I had kids and found my time for reading anything other than Curious George books very limited I suddenly found his books very draining to read. They were all so sappy and predictable, so I gave up on him and moved on to other things.
When I saw the movie Dear John is coming out based on one of his books I decided to give him a go again and read the book before seeing the movie. I'm so glad I did! I'll be honest it took me over a week to get through the first 20 pages and I almost took the book back to the library to find something else on my list but once I got into it I couldn't put it down, literally. This morning I woke up before the kids did so I could try and finish reading the last 100 pages, sadly they heard me and quickly got up... but I kept on reading. I read while making their breakfast, while getting them dressed, and even while changing diapers. I highly recommend it!

What are some good books you've read lately?? I'm always looking for a good read!

Straight... or curly???

I straightened my hair today... ok technically I didn't straighten it because that would require the skill and patience required to do so to my crazy hair, the lady who cuts my hair did it for me.
So which do you like better? I know my preference... but I wont bias anyone with that information just yet, feel free to be honest... unless you just hate my hair period, you can keep that opinion to yourself. :)

Curly... aka the normal me


Straight... (admittedly not the greatest picture... white wall... white shirt... pale face... eek!!)

My Life

Last night as I was driving to the post office at 1 AM I suddenly fell in love. Seriously. It was that heart pounding twitter-patted feeling. I was in love... with my life.
I don't know what it was that set it off but I suddenly felt so content regardless of the fact that I could have told you then and there 4297 things I'd change if I could. But most of those things are temporary, unimportant matters. All the stuff that is real, the things that count I've got plenty of.
I have a husband who treats me like a queen and is quite possible the worlds greatest father.
I have two children who daily show me they love me in their own way.
And I have the true Gospel of Jesus Christ that allows us to stay together as a family for eternity... seriously, what more could I want or need?
