Peter Rabbit - Movie Review

Last week I met Tiffani and her family at the movies to see Peter Rabbit.  It was a Tuesday night and a rather slow night for the theater as we were the only ones in the theater to see Peter Rabbit.


Let me start by saying this is a very funny movie.  We were all laughing throughout the entire movie.  James Corden was the voice of Peter Rabbit and he was hilarious.

So if you are looking for a good hearted movie, something you can sit back and laugh with...this is your movie.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Take care,

Lie To Me - Book Review

LIE TO ME (a psychological thriller) by J.T. Ellison

I've mentioned to you before I am an avid reader.  I LOVE to read.  I am so grateful to have been exposed to the library at a young age.  My favorite books to read are mysteries/thrillers with lots of drama.

Brooke introduced me to downloading audible books from the library.  I love it!  I download them onto the CloudLibrary app and listen to them every chance I get be it driving, waiting on someone, or sitting in a drive-thru lane picking up dinner (Chick-fil-A).  Literally every chance I can.  Especially when the book is as good as this one.

Lie to Me by J.T. Ellison is so good.  I loved it.  Here's a brief intro from J.T. Ellison's page:

They built a life on lies.
Sutton and Ethan Montclair's idyllic life is not as it appears. They seem made for each other, but the truth is ugly. Consumed by professional and personal betrayals and financial woes, the two both love and hate each other. As tensions mount, Sutton disappears, leaving behind a note saying not to look for her. 
Ethan finds himself the target of vicious gossip as friends, family and the media speculate on what really happened to Sutton Montclair. As the police investigate, the lies the couple have been spinning for years quickly unravel. Is Ethan a killer? Is he being set up? Did Sutton hate him enough to kill the child she never wanted and then herself? The path to the answers is full of twists that will leave the reader breathless.

If you decide to read it or listen to it, I'd love to hear your thoughts.  My first question would be "did you have any idea how it would end?"

I hope you have an amazing day today!!!

Take care,

I Can Only Imagine Movie Review

I Can Only Imagine (2018)

I hope you had a wonderful Easter celebrating the resurrection of our savior Jesus Christ.  Hopefully you didn't eat too many sweets!  :)

Two weeks ago today, I went to see I Can Only Imagine at the movie theater.  The hubs didn't want to go so I went alone, something I am very comfortable doing.  I was so excited to hear the story behind one of my favorite songs.


The seat I chose was right next to a very sweet couple.  There were times I was so overcome with emotion I could hardly keep it together.  I am quite sure had I not been sitting so close to them I would have balled my eyes out.  You know the kind where you are sobbing and finding it hard to catch your breath.  I found the movie to be very moving.  I highly recommend seeing it.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Take care,

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream and Hydrating Facial Cleanser


Good morning and happy Wednesday!!!

I hope you are having a good week and are experiencing beautiful weather, too!  We have been blessed with beautiful weather here in the Houston area which is nice since so many are out for spring break.


Today I want to share with you my love of CeraVe Moisturizing Cream.  I LOVE this cream.  I use it every day all day long.  I used to never want to wear lotion because it was so greasy and seemed to rest on top of my skin.  I love the fact that CeraVe is not greasy and really hydrates my skin.  It doesn't have a heavy, greasy feeling.  I refer to it as a "drink of water" for my skin.  You know how when you're thirsty and in need of water and once you take a drink you feel so much better?  It's sort of like that...makes my skin instantly feel so soft.


I also use the Hydrating Facial Cleanser.  I love the way my skin feels right after washing my face.  It feels so clean!

You can get a $2.00 off coupon here.

I hope you have a fabulous day!!!

Take care,

National Day of Unplugging

Friday, March 9th - 10th (sundown to sundown), is National Day of Unplugging.  There is a website promoting unplugging from your devices.

We increasingly miss out on the important moments of our lives as we pass the hours with our noses buried in our devices.

Are you addicted to your phone, notebook, or computer?  I, personally, can go without being "plugged in" without having withdrawals.  I find it very freeing to be disconnected from all technology.  I like not having a barrage of stuff coming at me at all times.  Know what I mean?  Usually if I'm on Facebook for a while I am either trapped :) in a car (just kidding) waiting on the hubs or its at night and I want to check in and see what my friends/family are up to.

If you were to unplug, what would you find yourself doing?  Reading a book, visiting with a friend/family member or taking a nap?  The weather here is supposed to be nice so I imagine I will be outdoors taking in the sun.  Something we didn't see much of in February as we had 81% cloud coverage.  Crazy, right?

I have several books I want to read...a couple I owe a book review on so I imagine I will be doing some reading, too.

Whatever you do, I hope you slow down and truly enjoy the time with your favorite people.

Take care,
