Desperately Seeking Good Books...

...and since it's Friday,
a few other random things.
but first...BOOKS!

one of my most loyal readers, who LOVES to read,
needs help finding some good books.
this is what she had to say:
"I love a good, clean story that makes you want to hurry home
and pick up where you left off".
some that she has enjoyed in the past are:
 Deb Macomber Blossom Street and other titles,
Sarah's Key, The Help and John Grisham Books.
See a trend?
good clean books, easy to get lost in,
 relatively clean in regards to content and language...
can you help...PLEASE????
I'll share your wonderful suggestions on my blog,
so thanks in advance!

now for the random part...
i worked out with a trainer last night.
did you hear my girls LAUGHING all the way from
south Florida?
because, as they said 
"Mom...we've heard the saying legs like jello or legs
 that buckle, but never knew it really happened"!
actually, i was laughing too.
we were cracking up!
untill i couldn't sleep for HOURS as my legs were restless/achy.
 it was kind of scary...
is that what MS could do to my legs someday?
jello-like, rubbery, weak legs?
like i said, kinda scary.
i think i'll stick to other types of exercise...
SANE kinds of exercise:)
didn't mean to be a downer or anything!
just saying...

okay, okay...
SUMMER is coming!
i'm going to tell you something i am in love with...
and you can get them at WALMART!
i love to wear cami's with everything...
jeans, shorts, under sweaters, jackets, to work out...
and believe it or not, there are some good cami's and some awful ones out there.
but these are at walmart...come in a few different colors,
have a shelf bra, are LONGER than most, so no bellies hanging out...
 the sizes go way up so they do not cling if you don't want and best of all, they only cost $4.88.
not bad, huh?

Old navy has this ombre long sleeved tee that i kinda like...
i think it might look pretty with a tan...
and it looks so comfy.
i would get it big and loose.
and because i need to get moving...
one last thing.
i saw this on pinterest today.
it even inspired me to make a new board for things
that make me go "Oh Heck"!
as in "oh this for real?"
cake batter rice krispie treats from
here you go...don't hate me!

Cake Batter Rice Krispies Recipe
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared into a batter!)
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in (dry) cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press into a baking dish (any size will do) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting. spraying a knife with nonstick spray helps to cut them.
*****use the rat of the cake mix to make MORE...or make a few cake batter cookies

AND PLEASE remember to tell me of your favorite books!!!!!
See you tomorrow...


  1. I have one right now on my books blog. It is a giveaway too for my awesome new twitter friend. Giveaway only for Canadians. But the book was fabulous. It got my highest rating ever. Come see why...


  2. On my blog I mention that one of my favorite books is "Jemima J" by Jane Green. It's such a fun book to read and a real page turner. If she's already read that I also just finished the "Trailer Park Mystery" series by Jimmie Ruth Evens, those were fun to read.

  3. Hey Mama :) OH heck, I want those cake batter things!!!! Haha, I love the name of your new board...I say "oh heck" all the time too :) My book recommendations:

    Through my Eyes, by Tim Tebow
    Rafa, by Rafael Nadal

    They are both incredible books by INCREDIBLE athletes!! I know they probably won't make it onto you blog post, but I just wanted to give you a few recommendations from your daughter :) Love you to the moon and back, Jordan XOXO

  4. I'm not at home to check my book list but Jane Green is really good and Elin Hildebrand is also good. The cake looks yummy!

  5. I love books.I cant get enough free time though lol.

    I do love the blog name of the recipe haaaa.To cute!

    Have a lovely sunday ahead Suzanne,Blessings!
