Happy Wednesday!
I had the day off from work today and so did my hubs.  Briana was at school so we spent the whole day together going to the farmer's market, playing mini golf, eating Bolivian food, taking a nap and watching Iron Man 3.  So much fun and definitely needed!
Happy Pinning ☺

Book Review: Fallen Too Far

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Synopsis from Goodreads:

To want what you’re not supposed to have…

She is only nineteen.

She is his new stepfather’s daughter. 

She is still na├»ve and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother. 

But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.

Blaire Wynn left her small farmhouse in Alabama, after her mother passed away, to move in with her father and his new wife in their sprawling beach house along the Florida gulf coast. She isn’t prepared for the lifestyle change and she knows she’ll never fit into this world. Then there is her sexy stepbrother who her father leaves her with for the summer while he runs off to Paris with his wife. Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous. He is also getting under her skin. She knows he is anything but good for her and that he’ll never be faithful to anyone. He is jaded and has secrets Blaire knows she may never uncover but even knowing all of that…

Blaire just may have fallen too far.

Abbi Glines:  You're amazing.  This was my first Abbi Glines book and I regret not reading this a LONG time ago!  But HOLY CLIFFHANGER!  I'm glad I waited because I had to buy Never Too Far as soon as I finished.  

The characters are awesome.  Blaire is so sweet and innocent but can be hardcore Ms. Independent and can sure as hell take care of herself.  Rush is the rich bad boy that acts like he needs no one but really he does need someone to watch over him.  

The story picked up pretty fast and I zoomed right through it in no time.  It took me two days to finish!
Fallen Too Far made me laugh and (almost) cry... LOVE it.

Blaire's server/cart girl job at the country club was fun to read about.  I've been working at a club for years and I PROMISE the atmosphere she was in is nothing close to real life... I hope I didn't disappoint anybody HAH.  All in all, a fabulous book.  Sweet and sexy read!

Not-So-Wordless Wednesday

My poor blog!
I've been neglecting her.
I now no longer have enough hours in a day.  So much I want to do with only two days off of work now.  Hanging out with the family, friends, and trying to get my boot camp work outs in has been difficult.  Reading and blogging are my favorite hobbies and doing both everyday is non-existent.
I need advice on how to manage my TIME.
I don't know how many times I've thought/said that.  It's a never ending battle even when I was a partial stay at home Momma.

Anyway, my new job at work has been interesting.  I barely know what day it is anymore!
Luckily, I've found some time to go out and let loose recently...

.... and me at work on Mother's Day ☺

Mother's Day was great.  
It's amazing how many compliments and congrats I got.  Along with people telling my boss that he "made a good move." (He's probably sick of that shit by now, but I'm not!)
Afterwards, I had dinner with my Hubs, the in laws, & Briana.  

I've also found time to "team build" with some of my fellow co-workers. 
Since we see each other all the time now and we like each other (always a PLUS,) 
it should be a rule that you need to do fun activities outside of work.
So manicures and shopping is what we did today!

My favorite purchase today: Polka dots of course (shocker?)

At this moment in my life, I'm so happy with all the people in it.  I'm feeling much more positive, happy and loved. Life is great. ♥

I am Miss Popular!

I found this on my desk waiting for me this morning. ☺
Each month, a newsletter gets sent out to all of the members (450+ memberships) at the country club.
Starting next week, I will be a full time manager.
A year from now, I sure hope I'm just as (or close enough to being) as happy as I am right now.
