Reviews, reviews, and reviews

When I find something that makes me happy, I love to pass it on and share the joy!

Last month I had the joy of reading a great book by Bethanne Strasser, "For Love or Duty."  I was first attracted to her blog, as she is a fellow Army Wife, and then was intrigued that she was also a writer.  I purchased the Kindle version of her book and was thoroughly pleased with the read.  I am not a fan of traditional romance novels because of all the sex.  I just don't want to read OR see it.  Bethanne did a tremendous job portraying the two main characters passion for one another without making me blush.  It made my heart smile!  It was sweet and kept me rooting for a romance to blossom while each character faced their fears.  I recommend this to not only my fellow Army Wives, but to anyone looking for a great, clean, read!

I have a confession.  While everyone is OBSESSED with Pinterest, I'm addicted to Etsy!  I love one of the kind things, and love supporting small business.  I recently purchased a necklace that is fast becoming my favorite accessory.  I have wanted a necklace like this ever since I found out I was having twins, but it makes a perfect mommy necklace with the option of up to 4 pearls.  From the day I purchased this necklace, to it arriving at my house was less than a week.  It was even in a pretty white box with blue ribbon!  Also, if you are an etsy fan too, find me so I can see some of your favorite things!

Last, the hubby and I went to Zip Quest here in Fayetteville to celebrate our 11 year anniversary this month.  I've heard people at work talk about wanting to go, and I thought it was a perfect thing for the hubby and I.  We did the fancy dinner last year, so flying through the tree tops seemed like the best idea!  When we arrived at 1630 it was 103 degrees outside and the hubby was already sweating.  We got rigged up and after properly demonstrating that we knew how to slow down, stop, and able to pull ourselves a short distance, we headed out.  It was SO much fun, and our guides, Ryan & Amanda, were fantastic.  If you are ever coming to the area, Zip Quest is a must.  It would also make a great girls, or guys, night out.

Sorry I don't have any great pix or my own, but PLEASE check out the links, you won't be disappointed!
