Little Bit of Everything!

Hey Everyone! I had the most wonderful weekend! I celebrated my birthday as well as finished Emily Griffin's "Something Borrowed". I thought I would share both experiences with you. Once in a while I come across a book that I can not put down. I finished "Something Borrowed" in 3 days flat. If I didn't have to go to work I probably could have brought that number down a little bit. The last time we left off I shared with you all that Rachel and Dex where in the middle of an affair. This is the main part of the story. The writer does move the story from New York to London, which is a breath of fresh air for reader's. In the end Dex does make a choice. Does he choose Rachel or Darcy? I admit that sometimes I am terrible at keeping a secret! I will tell you this though. The ending leaves the door open to the next book in the series "Something Blue", which I am going to pick up from the bookstore later today. I am also going to research some various book club questions for future post!

I had the most amazing time celebrating my birthday with my friends this weekend. I turned the wonderful age of 29. That's right! Last year in my 20's. I will say it's a little bitter sweet. My friends took me to a group cooking class called "Cooking with Ben". It was lovely. There were six of us and together we learned how to make fillet mignon, mashed potatoes(dairy free which I like since I am lactose intolerant),spinach and sun dried tomatoes,musells, lobster bisque and for dessert an apple tart. We then proceeded to sit down and enjoy what we made. It was like magic for someone like me who doesn't cook that often. I am proud to say I have some new recipe's up my sleeve now! I will cherish this birthday for years to come:-)


  1. Happy belated Birthday! It sounds like you had a great time.

    I saw the trailer for this a couple days ago and really want to get it before I hear too much about the movie and it's ruin.

  2. Ok, I stopped reading halfway down bc you were telling me what happened!

  3. Thanks for the birthday wishes! Yeah Eneia, I did think about whether I should tell people what happens or not. I have already started "Something Blue" and got the book club questions for that book.
