Blah Blah Blah

It's been a blah week. Not a thing going on. The only thing I have to look forward to is the FedEx guy showing up at our door.  I told you about how we were shopping for a rolling garment bag. I'd found a couple at Overstock but after going shopping Saturday & looking at sizes in person we determined that they're too small. Dean found one at the Samsonite store that he really liked. Even at the outlet store this thing was more than we wanted to spend. I mean we're not world travelers. Well, maybe I'm rubbing off on Dean because he got online & found the exact same bag for like $80 cheaper so he ordered it. Supposedly, it will be delivered today. My boots just shipped yesterday so I don't know when they'll get here but I'm DYING to see them.

Dean & I are going to dinner tonight because I have a gift certificate that expires today. Have y'all heard of Living Social? You sign up & they email a deal everyday. Lots of time it's half off certificates for  restaurants. The one we're using tonight is for Bistro Byronz. It's a $30 certificate that I paid $15 for. Bargain Bee is another site like Living Social. One of the companies (I think it's Bargain Bee) emails you the deal & it may say 50 deals have to be sold. If it's a deal you want you purchase it. If the 50 deals aren't sold you're credit card isn't charged & the deal is dead. I've bought several of these over the last few months.

With the boring week I've had, I did manage to finish 2 books.

This is a book that my MIL loaned me. I've read several books by Sheryl Woods & have liked them all. If you've read any Debbie Macomber, these are similar. I've said before that I like series. Sheryl has several. What's different about these is that each book in a series focuses on a different character. Honeysuckle Summer is part of the "Sweet Magnolia" series.

I talked about this series here. This is book 4 in the High Heels series. It was so good. These books make me laugh. I started on the 5th book in the series today. I love that these don't take long to get going. By Chapter 2 Maddie had already found a body! I was checking the Barnes & Noble website today & I discovered that book 5 is the last in the series. Well, I don't know if it's the last but so far she's only written 5. I also discovered that she has another series called the "Hollywood Headlines" series. I'll definitely check it out!



  1. I'm glad you posted about the High Heels series again. I forgot to write it down the first time. You must post pictures of the boots when they come. :)

  2. I wish I had legs like the gal on the cover. sigh.

  3. Im afraid if I brought that book in the house, my hubs will take up reading. ;)

    I second the picture of the boots.

  4. That website sounds terrific! I hope y'all enjoyed your dinner out! Sounds like a great night! I just love overstock! I found several neat dresses there this summer and they were so reasonable! Show us a pic of your new bag when it arrives!

  5. I am glad you found time to finish reading 2 books. Emjoy your dinner and hope you get your stuff delivered soon...Christine

  6. I have 2 books left in the Sweet Magnolia series . . they are a cute read!

  7. I just found out about Living Social recently. SO awesome!
