Living the dream...

Well the dream I had when I was in grade school.  That was the first time I saw The Lost Boys.  It was on VHS, so I am thinking 1988-1989.  Probably not the most appropriate film for an 11 year old girl to see, but I was at a friend's house.  ;) 

This past weekend, Corey Feldman was only a drive away, hosting various movies that he had been in during the eighties.  I just HAD to go.  We bought tickets to see The Lost Boys.  It was the first vampire movie I ever saw, and one of my favorite movies of all time.  After he signed autographs, he came into the theater showing the movie and talked a little bit. 

To be honest, I always loved Corey Haim more than Corey Feldman, but I still loved Corey F.  He was pretty cute in person and seemed very nice.  I only wish I had saved a Teen Beat magazine - it would have been nice to have him sign a poster that I had had up on my wall when I was younger.  (Now, I'm guessing Keith would get annoyed if I had posters of hot celebrities adorning the walls of our bedroom.)

I LOVE Lost Boys. I'm with you though, I was always a much bigger Corey Haim fan and was so rooting for him to get his act together. How fun would it be to see Corey Feldman in person, though?!

What fun that you got to meet him!

I've never seen The Lost Boys, but since I have nothing better to do during the weeknights I might as well hit it up one of these days. How fun for you though!

I am so jealous!

Favorite line from The Lost Boys...
"Maggots, Michael. You're eating maggots. How do they taste?"

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.

The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
