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!
