Books: Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor

This month I read both  Daughter of Smoke & Bone*and Days of Blood & Starlight*, and they were absolutely amazing! I actually checked Smoke & Bone out from the library three separate times before I got around to reading it, and I could kick myself for wasting so much time. If you have any interest at all in YA fiction, I highly suggest adding this to your To Read list immediately. Then we can be crushed together that we have to wait until April for the third book to come out. Nine months is an eternity!
(Trust me, I know. I did that whole pregnancy thing twice.)
TV & Movies: I’ve got nothing!

True Blood season 6 is kinda crap, The Following was pretty predictable, Mad Men is dragging, and even though you all know how much I like looking at Channing Tatum; Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street were far from cinematic masterpieces. Any suggestions?

Websites: PicMonkey

PicMonkey Logo

I know this one is kinda a cop-out since we all already know how awesome PicMonkey is,
but I got the upgrade for my birthday, so it’s a whole new adventure for me now.

 Food: Carvel Ice Cream Cake

This has been my birthday cake ever since I was little and I look forward to it every. single. year.
How an anyone possibly resist that electric blue frosting?

Kids: Sliding Boards

Chick-fil-a, the playground, or just the backyard: Corbin has figured them out and he loves it!

Adults: CoverGirl BB Cream

Bloggy-land has been all abuzz lately about how amazing BB Creams are, and I finally broke down and bought one.  I tried this CoverGirl Smoothers* brand simply because I had a coupon for it, and low and behold I actually like it! I hardly ever wear more than concealer anymore (to hide the dark circles), and this made me feel like I was doing something for a change. And since I’m absolutely terrible at remembering to put on sunblock, maybe this will keep my face from turning into a giant freckle fest! Two birds, one squeeze tube!

Just for fun: RAW Hair Dye

Don’t ask me how I know, but RAW Twisted Teal Hair Color*smells like bubblegum!

  1. Yay, so glad you liked the Daughter of Smoke and Bone books! They really are something special.

    Do you have Netflix? We've gotten into Supernatural lately. It's kind cheesy and all, but oh, Toni, those boys are easy on the eyes, and the show is actually pretty good. Mmmm.

    Your birthday cake looks AMAZING. I'm going to crash your birthday party!

    Corbin looks so cute! I love how excited he looks to be on that slide!

    And speaking of blue hair dye, I owe you an email! Coming soon to an inbox near you.

    1. Ha ha, I'm looking forward to that e-mail. (Don't encourage me anymore! LoL)

      If we didn't have Netflix I think I would be insane by now. Having My Little Ponies & Sesame Street at the touch of a button has been an absolute lifesaver! Have you guys watched Breaking Bad? Ant is pretty sold on that one, but I'm more interested in the new Reign show on CW.
