Here are a few of the authors that I have been reading lately:
Kay Hooper: Total suspense! The Bishop series is awesome! I have read a few of her other books and I want to check out more. I find her books very gripping! Each book sucks you right in and makes you want to read more. They are totally good reads if you enjoy psycho thrillers, which are my favourite books!
Lisa Jackson: Again psycho thrillers! Very riveting, they get you right at the beginning and you have to find out what happens next. I am actually reading Running Scared by Lisa Jackson right now!
Sherrilyn Kenyon: I am working my way through the Dark Hunter series. My sister-in-law actually got me onto them, I think M* has read most of them. They are more of a fantasy book then a thriller but they are still really good! They do have the suspense that I like too!
Donna Kauffman : Romance novels, ahhhh romance. For the most part if I am not reading a psycho thriller I am reading a romance. I really enjoy Donna Kauffman's writing style. I love that pretty much all her books take place in Scotland, after all I am part Scottish. The books totally make me want to see Scotland for myself!!
Diana Orgain: I found Diana one day while looking through the racks at the library. I still haven't read the 1st book in the Maternal Instincts Mystery series. I have read the 2nd and 3rd one though and they were great! They totally made me laugh! It's such a great story line and as a mom I totally remember when I was new to having a baby and all the weird things I questioned. So looking forward to reading more from her!
Richelle Mead: 4 words The Vampire Academy Series! Awesome! I know they are a young adult book but I so don't care! I loved each and every one of these books! I read WAY into the night so that I could find out what happened, I will so be reading these again!
So that's my latest in books, I'm sure I will add more. I hope that I give you guys some new ideas for books to read. Let me know if you think there are any that I should check out!

After lunch T* and I had a birthday party to go to, I know what you're thinking, "who has a birthday party on Mother's day?" It was actually really nice. My friend had booked everything and made up invitations and had everything ready before she realized it was Mother's day. Honestly it was great though. T* and I got to go out for a bit, she got to play while I had some adult conversation with the other moms that were there. We totally enjoyed ourselves! After the party was over T* and I went over to the birthday girls house to hang out in the sun for a few hours and let the kids play some more.
When we got home we had some other family over, so it was nice to see everyone, a couple that we hadn't seen in a while. There was more good conversation and even some cake!
It's hard to see but the robin has a worm in her mouth, you could tell that she was taking it home to her nest for her babies. It was Mother's day for everyone!!

The birthday today was great, I had a wonderful time watching all the little ones running around. Enjoyed some great conversation, and saw lots of babies :). Near the end of the birthday party a group of balloons got lose and floated up into the sky. It was quite funny to see about 20 adults all staring up and watching the balloons as the floated up. We were all standing there for about 15 minutes, just staring up. It was too funny. I wish I had thought to take a picture of everyone. It was pretty crazy to see how far the balloons went. They just went straight up, didn't really catch a breeze or anything, we watched until all you could see was a little tiny dark dot on the white clouds. Very easily entertained we were lol.
All in all it was a great afternoon. Now to do it all again tomorrow and next Saturday. I'm sure there will be a few more after that, like I said, spring brings out the birthdays!

The reason that I got on the computer today is because my lovely sister-in-law M* has a new blog herself. M* is an amazing cake artist, she can pretty much make anything and this is what her blog is about. So stop on over and check it out!!
You can find M*'s blog here: http://lilttlekitchencakes.blogspot.com/

I think I have passed this on to T*. She will call me or her dad whenever there is a spider in her room, or any other room that she is in. She has scared the crap out of me by screaming in the car because there is one somewhere in the back (almost caused an accident a couple times). She will not let it go until you go up and kill it, and honestly I can totally relate to her. As much as it creeps me out, I have found the one thing that lets me get close enough to a spider to kill it, that is T*. I don't want the spider anywhere near her, so I am able to kill it to keep it away from her. Hopefully she will be able to do the same thing for her daughter, unless arachnophobia skips her generation......

It's rather enjoyable driving along singing with T*, I really have a lot of fun with it. I am hoping that she keeps her music tastes eclectic as she grows up. I have always been into a huge variety of music, it doesn't always make sense how I jump from genre to genre, but I enjoy it. I hope that T* has the same kind of love of music as well!
