I was given this eBook for free from NetGalley and Diversion Books in exchange for an honest review.
Four women have little in common other than where they live and the joyous complications of having sisters. Cindy waits for her own life to begin as she sees her sister going in and out of hospitals. Lise has made the boldest move of her life, even as her sister spends every day putting herself at risk to improve the lives of others. Diana is an ocean apart from her sister, but worries that her marriage is the relationship separated by the most distance. Sylvia has lost her twin sister to breast cancer, a disease that runs in the family, and fears that she will die without having ever really lived.
When Diana places an ad in the local newsletter, Cindy, Lise, and Sylvia show up thinking they are joining a book club, but what they discover is something far deeper and more profound than any of them ever imagined. Continue reading “#BookReview: The Sister’s Club by Lauren Baratz-Logsted”
This weekend my mother in law and I spent the Saturday afternoon at the Mall where she treated me to all new clothes……maternity clothes that is and with my mother out of town I had to do an impromptu photo shoot of some of the shirts. She chastised me on the phony smile in two of the pictures so I made up for it on the photo in the middle.The shirt with the lace arms was REALLY out of my comfort zone but I decided I needed to get it because I need to step outside my comfort zone. I’m going to having a baby for crying out loud, I’m going to be doing things and touching stuff I would never think to do or touch now so I may as well get started and Mom up.

And here’s how I cleaned up Monday morning for work. I was really worried that the maternity clothes would make me look like a tent or make me feel like an ugly duckling but it was honestly the opposite. I’ve really felt so beautiful today and proud to finally be able to not have to hide my baby bump. Granted you can’t see the bump in the outfit but I didn’t have to hide it and that was the point. And Can I tell you that maternity pants are by far the most comfortable thing I’ve EVER worn!!! I wish I could wear them FOREVER!

Many of you might remember my rant from a May 2015 where I bitched and felt offended that people and even family were constantly questioning why I hadn’t had children at my age……33 by the way. I went on and on about how I didn’t have to follow societies or my families “rules” regarding procreation and I would either have kids at some point or I wouldn’t and that it wouldn’t have a positive or negative affect on my life. I still believe that to be true by the way, even if my circumstances have now changed. Continue reading “And Baby Makes Three”
I’ll be making a major announcement (obviously) tomorrow night so be sure to sit by your phones and computers ready with bated breath for the long awaited news!
I know just this small blurb will have you pacing the floor and biting those already short nails but you’ll just have to wait.

I didn’t go gory, I prefer the funny and this was perfect!
I don’t really believe any of the superstition regarding this date. I actually find it to be my luckier days and I LOVE cats! I think they’re good luck all year long. If a cat is crossing my path it’s because he/she is either hungry or needs a petting. I’d be more worried about a werewolf or Imp…..they’re just creepy lol
