Rainy Day Reading

This weekend I went home to visit my parents,
while T went to a Bachelor Partay.
We can't wait for our friend's wedding in March.
It's in Austin, Texas!
I'm so excited because I've never been to TEXAS!
OH, can't wait!  Any advice on things to do/see in Austin?

Anyway, I was hoping to get some great photos of our farm and my hometown, 
but
IT RAINED!
The entire weekend!

So, it was a l a z y weekend! 
The first morning I walked downstairs to this...

Talk about Noah's Ark!
Maddy, Socks, and Checkers were not ready for the day to begin!


Mom and I braved the rained and went shopping.
I almost bought one of these...
a blue and white garden stool for our guest bedroom, but I decided against it.


Once we got back Mom set to work on her newest hobby - sugar cookies.
She made these for a wedding shower.
I was the taste-tester! 
So good!


I was obviously no help in the kitchen, so after a nap...


I started to read my new books from the library.

Time to start reading already?!?
"5 more minutes..."

These are the books I'm currently reading...
all from the library!

Since I loved my last Terry Kay book so much, I picked up another one of his books.
Shadow Song
Finished this one last week - another great book by my newest favorite author!
Easy Read and such a sweet story!
5 Stars!

Haven't read these two...
yet..


I also picked up another book by Kristin Hannah.
I really enjoyed Firefly Lane.

I finished Winter Garden this weekend
and I wasn't disappointed!
It's a sweet story and it's an easy read as well!
Also, it has a great twist...at the end!!!  Love a twist!
4 Stars!

I had some company while reading...


Time to turn the page!


Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Hopefully, the SUN will come out this weekend
because we're going hunting...
thats right...
More about that later. ;)
Much love!

I love Julia Reed--so fun and always making me hungry. Have you read anything by Beth Webb Hart? I think you would like her a lot.

What a nice weekend. Have you ever read Stuart Woods? He is a Georgia author. Easy read, but he is a mystery writer. Yes, it looks like more snow may be on the way. Who knows?

I have heard that Austin, TX is one of the best cities in the U.S. I haven't been but it's on my list - you'll have to take good notes for me!

Sounds like the perfect way to spend a weekend! The Swan House and Winter Garden are on my reading list.

I'm a huge library fan. Glad I'm not the only book nerd around :)
