I don't read...

I don't read books, I devour them!
Ever since I was little my mom would take me to the library and would ration out my books...
If she didnt we would be back at the library the next day!
No joke!

I found a website where I can record everything I've read.
I need to be better about keeping up on it tho...
Go visit Good Reads 

I read The Help the other week.
You may have heard of it...

It took me two days to finish it. That's a long time! My husband asked what was taking so long?? Well, I had to read it in a southern accent... duh!  I can't wait to see the movie!

Then I started another book! One that blew me away!
It's probably a touchy subject and I'm sure everyone has their opinions.

I will start by saying I believe in Heaven and if I believe in Heaven then I have to believe in Hell.
Everything on this earth has an equal and opposite.
I wouldn't call myself religious, but I would say I'm spiritual.
I was raised Catholic.
I had my First Communion when I was little.
Ive been to confession.
I pray, but I don't preach it.
I haven't been to church since before my son was born.
That is another reason in itself.
There's only one Catholic Church in our town.
They aren't very nice or welcoming...
They make me feel uneasy & out of place.
Do I feel guilty? Maybe a little bit. That's the Catholic in me.
I don't feel that I need to step in to an establishment to pray and worship.
I do it every day. In my own time.
Ive seen prayer work.
I have friends that are atheists.
To each his own.

Reading this book was a huge eye opener!
Kids say the most amazing things.
Out of innocence, before the world corrupts them.
Kids have huge imaginations.
I know my son does.
If you really listen to the words that this boy in the book has to say, if you release an skeptisism, you will amazed!
I was.
There's no way this boy at the age of 3 could have made this up.

Even if you aren't a believer, read it. I'd love to know what you think...
Please, be nice. Even if you don't believe. We can always agree to disagree.

besos :*

Monday's Style File ~ Lindsay Price

Good God! How is it Monday already?? I did not sleep so well last night and could totally use a nap right about now!

Anywho, I mentioned Lindsay Price the other day when I found out that not only are her and Curtis Stone an item, but she is preggers with his child! Goodness, this kid is gonna be adorable!! She was a from a lil show called 90210 back in the day and was on Lipstick Jungle with Brooke Shields. They cancelled that one after one season, sad!

Linking up with Courtney over at Courtney's Organized Chaos

Capturing Joy

Happy Flyday! That's Friday people!!

Okay, whatever... Linking up with Erin @ Living in Yellow for her weekly Capturing Joy :)

I like me some peecatures!!

You should link up with her and show me some of your peecatures. It would make me happy!.

And if Sierra's happy, everyone is happy:)

I chose the water today. I'm happiest around the water, whether it be the ocean, river or our irrigation ditch... Technically that's river water. I grew up in the country, what of it?



That was a crappy one, because photobucket was giving me issues today... Thank God it's Friday!

News to me!

So back when my monkey was a little thang and I was home for those 5 weeks I used to watch the food channel like crazy! I still do, but I had an immense amount of time since I was home and I had already cleaned the house 42,000 times over.

Anyways my fave show was Take Home Chef with Curtis Stone. I loved him and thought he was so adorable. I wished and prayed that he would find me at the store and make me take him home. I would gladly feign being an idiot in the kitchen to have him in my house and maybe win him over and then he would never want to leave. Im sure the hubs would have been okay because hey, Curtis Stone was cooking for us!

Sadly, my world was rocked when i saw this picture.

Grrrr, I can't compete with Lindsay Stone!! Here she is in all her gorgeousness... And I hear they're having a lil bambino soon. Fan-freaking-tastic!

I'm totally kidding, kind of. I love both of them and they make a totally cute couple and probably adorable babies! And that is all, for now... ;)

So I may fall over at any moment, just warning you! I skipped coffee this morning. Big mistake, big, huge! Uggg, my butt is dragging... I think the boss man may notice if I lay my head down on the desk. So, instead I'm typing away looking real productive like. I am so smart!

It's been in the 100's the past couple days, ewww! I was so excited to take my boy to the park and play in that thing where the water shoots up all unsuspecting like. Now, it's overcast, cold and impending thunderstorms are on the horizon. Thanks mother nature for giving me the bird today!

Do you believe in ghosts (evil or good) ??

I'm half mexi, so I grew up with all the hush, hush ghost talk. I believed it whole heartedly!

It never really scared me because it was just a way of life. If something weird happened in our house it was the ghost that did it...

Yeah, we had a ghost. My dad even talked to her one time. He thought it was my mom, till my mom came home and could hear my dad talking. My mom never saw her.

We had a cousin stay over and she saw her. We would have all the doors close in the house, one after another if we were up too late or making too much noise.

My dad says he watched a priest cleanse a house down the street from us. He says he saw the door fly off the hinges. All of the stuff in the house flying around the priests head... And after that we had our friendly ghost that looked after us.

Is that creepy? There are other stories, but I won't bore you with those.

They say that children are more intuitive than adults. They use more of their brain and therefore can utilize that sixth sense.

You know, when the hairs stand up on your arms. A cold breeze blows thru a room with no windows opens. When you sense someone standing behind you. You smell a familiar smell that you shouldn't smell... You take a picture and you get that orb of light.

Call me superstitious or crazy. I'll agree to both:)

This is what happened the other night with my son.

Gavin: Hi, why are you sad?

Me: Who are you talking to?

Gavin: A little boy

Me: That's just you in the reflection, honey.

Gavin: No, look mommy. There's me and a little boy standing next to me. He's sad. He misses his mommy.

At this point I'm freaking out but don't want to show it!

Me: What's his name?

Gavin looks to both sides of him and then looks in the window reflection with a confused look.

Gavin: Where'd he go mommy?

Me: Maybe he found his mommy?

Gavin: Oh, okay!

And he goes about playing...

We live in a really old house that was remodeled. It might be my son's overactive imagination or something else.

Creepy, right!

Got any ghost stories??
