Ode to good and lasting friends...

>> Tuesday, January 20, 2009

David and I are fortunate enough to have another couple who are very dear friends. David grew up with Tommy his best friend and bowling partner of many years. Tommy was and still is David's partner in crime, bowling buddy, golfing companion and cranium team member. Tommy started dating Heather and her and I clicked instantly. She is my shopping companion, cranium team member, someone I can laugh with and someone I trust wholeheartedly. I don't think she has a bad bone in her body.

David and I had dinner with them tonight (our usual $.35 wing night at Bogarts) and stayed for trivia at the restaurant. We had such a good time laughing, eating, playing trivia and drinking margarita's. It just made us realize how fortunate we are to be friends with such a great couple and good friends. Friends we can be ourselves with!

We love them to death and look forward to many more fun times together!


A New Year....A New Book

>> Thursday, January 15, 2009

I had only one resolution this year and it was to read a series of books. So for my birthday Dave bought me Twilight. I really had not heard much about the book(s) except for the fact that a movie had been recently made and they seemed to be popular books.

I have read the first three books in the series and I am working on the 4th. I just could not put them down and had to buy all of them. They are not the most well written books, but they have a great story line, hold your interest and take you through great adventures. After the first book I felt so close to all the characters and now as the saga ends I am a bit saddened. I truly encourage anyone looking for an easy and enjoyable read to pick these books up....you will be in love.

My 2009 goal was accomplished a lot quicker than I had anticipated, so I am looking for a new series of books to read. I would like to read 3 more series before the years end.

If any of you have suggestions I would love to hear from you!
