What’s with Naperville and TV lately?

Ok, so I live in Naperville. I don’t usually post locations of personal stuff on my blog, but I have to share this:

And then I was watching this episode of Warehouse 13 this afternoon:

Woo-Hoo!

Book Review – The Mailbox, by Marybeth Whalen

The Mailbox: A Novel, by Marybeth Whalen

(Just so ya know up front, this book was provided to me, for review, by The B&B Media Group. Also, I worked with Marybeth during my stint as an admin and writer for FaithLifts.)

In the Christian Fiction category, this book receives a 4 out of 5 stars.

My Review
Snackable? It’s a small meal type book. Chapters are not huge, but it’s best to stay with a chapter until the end. It does a Past/Present flip flop with each chapter, so it is good to stay with the chapter breaks as best as you can.
“Lundie” ending? Yes. 🙂
Best thing? It surprised me a little in the end. I love having both a surprise and a Lundie ending in the same book!! LOL.
Worst thing? I struggled at the beginning of the book to get the flow of it. At first I thought it was just a bunch of different non sequitur stories. It took a couple chapters to realize it was one set of characters in different time frames. After I got that figured out, it was great!

Gratitude – August 2

holy experience

  1. Air conditioning
  2. The fun of planting flowers in the back yard – hoping to create a natural privacy screen
  3. The old Game Boy to keep a 4-year-old occupied during grocery shopping
  4. A solid weekend of getting stuff done, and getting exercise
  5. My hubby – I’m so blessed to not only love him, but like him!
