"the weekend's here"

To be perfectly honest, I didn't have the best week. So my top five are little weak, but they're here none-the-less.

1:: I got new shoes! For the past seven years (and most of my life) I've worn Nike shoes, this time I got Under Armour, and I love them!

2:: My 7th grade volleyball team won their game yesterday! Our record is now 1-1.

3:: I worked a lot this week.... moneyyy!

4:: My cousin Mo, her kids Tallon and Corbin, and her mom came to my game on Tuesday. They made two posters and brought me M&Ms. I love my family.

5:: With the passing of my kitty cat, Boots, everyone has been so nice and caring. I am one blessed individual. Rest In Peace Bootsie <3

1. What do you enjoy doing the most with your spouse?
    I don't have a spouse.

2. How do you eat your taco? From the top or from the side?
    From the side.

3. Have you ever shut off the basement light and ran like a fool because you knew someone was down there and would get you?
    Because I "knew" someone was down there - no. No one was ever in my basement trying to get me. Because I "thought" someone was trying to get me - yes, when I was younger but only a few times. I don't get scared easily.

4. If you could change one thing about you what would it be and why?
    Just one? Braces, off. For the obvious reason of why would anyone want braces. Otherwise, I'd say perfect 20/20 vision -no contacts. But thats it really.

5. What age do you think is appropriate to have the "bird and the bees" talk with your children?
    No idea. Just let it happen when it happens I guess. We're not the kinda family that sits down and discusses things like in movies/TV. And I'm sure it'll be the same for my children one day.

1.  Over this labor day weekend I will be    working, and enjoying the Geauga County Fair. And if Isaac allows I'll be sitting poolside with a cold drink in my hand.
2.  With the political debates going on right now, my thoughts are  can it be November yet? I'm sick and tired of the ads.
3.  Today    I'm relaxing until work tonight.
4. The best thing I've cooked recently was    I don't cook, my mommmy does.
5. The last thing I bought was  a dress, shockingly enough, for my cousins wedding.

6. The best movie I saw this summer was  this summer, I guess I'd say... Hunger Games or 21 Jump Street, both were great. -I don't tend to go to the theater to see movies, too expensive.
7.  The best book I read this summer was   That Boy by Jillian Dodd. (see book club Friday, below)

For this Book Club Friday I'm talking about That Boy, by Jillian Dodd.
Here's what Good Reads says::  
You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. 
There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it’s windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He’s the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He’s pretty much irresistible.
Equally crush worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth.  Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He’s the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me.  And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no.
One boy will give me my very first kiss. One boy will teach me to make out. One boy will take me to prom. And finally, one boy will ask me to marry him. They will both be my best friends. But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with. Only one of them is That Boy.

Here's what I say::
It's a quick and easy read, but it's good! It will suck you in, and best of all? It's a series! Followed by That Wedding, and soon-to-be-published That Baby. One of my favorite books, ever. I'm not sure if it is because I can kinda relate in a weird way, or because it's just that good. I love how it was written, like it was Jayden's diary or something. Brilliant! I highly recommend it.

Happy Friday!
life is good
