Baby Proof

Traveling stinks sometimes, but lucky for me my most recent trip back to Boston went very smoothly. On top of smooth travels, I was also able to finish a book!

I have now read all of Emily Giffin’s books. I read Love The One You’re With first…probably over a year ago. I almost want to go back and read it again since it is the most recent book that she wrote. In all of the other books the characters overlap so I am sure that some characters I recently read about are in Love The One You’re With too…but I couldn’t tell ya!

Something Borrowed and Something Blue were read back to back. I wanted to read Baby Proof next but it wasn’t available at the library at the time. I skipped head to Heart of the Matter. I wish I was able to read them in order just to understand all of the characters better but you definitely don’t need to read them in order.

I am not one to give a book review, but I will say that I liked Baby Proof the best. Maybe that is because it is the one that is most fresh in my mind but overall I really loved the story in this book and loved the characters. Do you ever read a book and wish there was a next book to tell more about the characters lives? That is how I feel about this book. Even though the book is done, I find myself still wondering about the characters. Is that weird? Maybe that is weird.

If you are in to scandalous love stories then I definitely recommend all of Emily Giffin’s books!

Mission Complete

Mission stay out of the AC-less apartment was a success!

I went to the temp agency to fill out some paperwork for the job they placed me in. They then sent me somewhere for a drug test. I had never been drug tested before, but I knew I’d just have to pee in a cup. Let’s just say, I was a little dehydrated.

After my appointment I laid my eyes upon a grocery store, an Old Navy, and a Target. Win!

When it gets really hot out, as it has been, I tend to not really get hungry. I realized I hadn’t eaten since breakfast and with it being 1:30 I figured I’d run into the grocery store and grab something to eat since I forgot to bring food with me.

The fruit greeted me as I walked in the store. Sold. I roamed around the grocery store a bit more and enjoyed the AC.

I walked out of the store with a plum and a Lara Bar. (I fell in love with these when I ran my half marathon).

After refueling I browsed around Old Navy and walked out with a new white tank top, a cute blue dress, and plum colored shorts. Maybe one day I will start incorporating clothing into my blog, but today is not the day.

Next AC destination: the gym.

I started out with 2 sets of 25 side bends. I also have a favorite ab machine at the gym. I am not sure what to call it, but I did 3 sets of 15 reps on that.

For cardio I started out with 10 minutes on the stair master. To follow, I hopped on a treadmill. The plan was to run 3 miles. 3 miles later I was still feeling good and ran one more. I ended the work out with walking a mile at a 4.5 pace and then a quarter of a mile for a cool down.

It felt so great to be out of the apartment all day today. I really can’t wait to start working and get into a routine.

Tuesday is coming to an end. Looks like a night on the couch with HGTV and Bossypants. 🙂

Something Blue

As another weekend comes to an end I find myself on the couch sucked into HGTV. I am obsessed with just about every show on this channel.

It is a not so nice day out there. It is very humid and already rained once. I could totally go for a thunderstorm to break the heat, so let’s cross our fingers!

There are a couple things on the agenda for today. But first, let’s talk books.

A few weeks ago I finished Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. I enjoyed the book for a few reasons, but mainly because it was a quick read. Once I was done I knew right away that I wanted to read the next book, Something Blue.

I just finished it up a few days ago and I liked it just as much as the first book. Love The One You’re With is another book by Emily Giffin that I read a long time ago. At this point I’d say the next book on my easyreadsappylovestory list would be Baby Proof  by Emily Giffin. I am pretty cheap when it comes to buying books so I recently went to the local library to get a library card. They said they were going to mail it to me and I still haven’t received it yet. 😦

In the meantime, Phil let me buy a book on his Kindle. Well, like I said I’m cheap about buy books so Phil bought it because he might want to read it too.

I think he was just trying to be super nice because he left for the day to go golfing and didn’t want me to be totally bored sitting around here without him.

Time to park in on the couch in front of a fan and get my read on.

Something Borrowed

I love a good, quick read every now and then. Something Borrowed was just that!

I actually hated a lot about the book. I am a sucker for love stories, which is exactly what this was, but I hate cheating and there was a lot of that in the book as well.

I have a rule for myself. If there is a book that is a movie, then I need to read the book first if I think that I want to see the movie. Well, now that the book is done, my friend Rachel and I can have our movie date!

After Something Borrowed comes Something Blue. Yes, I plan to read this one as well. Like I said, gotta love a quick read!
