Yep, we lead exciting lives...

okay, maybe not so much...but we did have a good week.

After my productive but relaxing vacation day on Monday, we celebrated Corby's birthday on Tuesday. It was such a hot and humid day that I surprised him and his co-workers with some cupcakes and popsicles around 1pm. I was basically mobbed when they found out I had popsicles!

Kaitlin and I took him to Hu Hot for dinner. I had never been there, though I'd been to a similar place in KC in May. He really liked it. We also got a free dessert. We'd already eaten part of it before I remembered to take a picture!

Kaitlin and I went to lunch at The Beacon on Wednesday. Well, it was lunchtime but we both had breakfast. She had an omelet and I had biscuits & gravy.

Thursday I was VERY excited to receive my copy of "Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten"...

My niece's husband, Daniel, did the illustrations. I took it to work on Friday and showed it to all the graphic designers in my ACS department. Everyone was very impressed. Great job Daniel, and I can't wait for the second book!

Kaitlin left for KC on Friday afternoon to visit her friend Lydia, so we've had a couple of days of "empty nest syndrome" again. She will be home this evening, and Lydia is actually following her home and will spend a week or so with us.

Last night we went out with my friend/boss, Cindy and her husband, Jerry.

We all go back a long way. Their oldest daughter Jennifer was the flower girl at our wedding, and both she and her sister, Megan, babysat our kids when they were little. Now they are both married with children of their own. Anyway, we went out to dinner at Abuelo's (my favorite restaurant) and then went bowling at Northrock Lanes. We were quite the motley bowlers. I think Cindy won the first game with a score in the low 100's, and I won the second game with a score of 104! We had fun though!

Did our double $1 coupon shopping at Leeker's this morning, after doing our regular shopping at Dillons yesterday. Saved about $25 at Leeker's and got several items free!

Current music: Blake Shelton, early Bob Seger, and I'm really getting excited about the Eagles concert on Wednesday!!!! CAN'T WAIT!

Both our cats love boxes, and I knew that Abby would enjoy this box that Daniel's book arrived in...

 Hope everyone has a great week!

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

5 STARS

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
The Nanny Arrangement

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.
