My weekend

Hi, would you believe that I actually did some other things this weekend besides rescuing a dog? For starters on Friday night I made the Pioneer Woman’s Pantry Pasta for 2 and it was delish, like I knew it would be! Even Matt my “I hate olives” hubby loved it! We then went to see No Strings Attached…………….It was a packed house for this romantic comedy and it was very funny. This was cute, funny and they are both so good looking it is crazy. But I will tell you this it is an R rated movie for a reason, some shockiout of the blue “stuff” and personally I think it would of been just as good as PG-13 without the added nonsense but oh well. Will I rent it to watch again when it comes out? Heck ya!

So I finally finsihed Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor…..all 1,000 tiny printed pages…..this was a labor of love and it took me 2 weeks to finish. You see this is my dear friend Natalie’s favorite book of ALL time and I was glad she shared it with me! The jest is that this is a Historical Romance set in London during the black plague and Great Fire which was such an interesting time. I loved how this was historically correct and would you believe that when this first came out in the 40s it was banned and considered shocking. Amber is a girl who knows what she wants and will do anything to make something of herself…..even if that means losing loved ones!
I truly enjoyed this book and loved the time period, with her writing I could picture everything in my head so vividly. If you love history I think you will love this book! Let me know if you ever read this, I would love to discuss it with you guys!

    we saw no strings attached this weekend too :)i loved it, natalie portman was super cute. normally i find ashton kutcher sort of the same in everything, but i didn't TOTALLY notice it this time. since seeing it, i think i have said "you look like a pumpkin b*tch" way too many times to my mister. for some reason we both found that line to be hilarious… especially bc the girls didn't look orange on the screen we were watching it on!i might need to add this book to my list. thanks for sharing 🙂
