Weekend Re-Cap

One of the kids threw a pull-up in the dirty clothes, 
and I didn't realize it until after I had washed it. 
(Hey, at least it was a clean one.)  
That was a lot of fun to try 
and clean out of the washer. 
(And then have to re-wash a bunch of clothes.) 

Keith bought me flowers. ♥ 
And then the kids decorated my credenza 
with "Easter animals". 
Please do not argue with Keira
 about the "Easter penguins". 
You won't win.

My town had an Easter egg hunt on Saturday. 
The kids had a great time. 
After finding their eggs and getting their goody bags, 
we headed over to the village hall where 
they got "hopped" up on sugar with cookies and munchkins.  
Good times. Not.  

Then we met the Easter Bunny. 
Well, everyone but Keira who is scared of him. 
 A female police officer even offered to go up 
with Keira to meet the bunny, but she declined. 

I did a little shopping at Kohls and picked me up some 
of those stackable bracelets.
I also got this watch and bracelet set.
I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that 
the colors do not coordinate, 
but for $4.60 I will deal with it.

I don't have any phone pics, but on Sunday, 
we went to celebrate my cousin's twins' first birthday. 
My kids had an absolute blast coloring pictures for the twins.
I also got to rock a 4 month old baby for awhile.
Ah... teeny tiny babies are so much fun.
Although I'm glad I got to hand him back to his dad. :)

Colin and Connor had the "best night ever" staying up late and reading books 
until they ratted themselves out and came downstairs to tell me it was the best night ever. 
Connor went to bed after that.
20 minutes later I found Colin 
hiding in the office and pretending to drink my wine.

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.

I saw …

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 …
