Week in Review 12/30/12

What went on in my life:
Christmas, family, fun and then back to work. It was a great holiday spent with my family.  I have to admit to being slightly bah humbug going into the holiday but once it was here I was fully into it and enjoyed every minute. It was stressful, busy yet a lot of fun.  It was a wonderful Merry Christmas and for those of you who celebrate Christmas I hope yours was wonderful as well.  Above was my big surprise from my parents, my husband got a bike as well. We spent 4 days on Ocracoke this past summer and loved it and now have a chance to spend Easter week there this coming year. The best way to get around is by bike so my parents surprised us with bikes.  I see several day trips over there in our future as well.  If you don't know about Ocracoke, NC, I suggest you google it and learn about this tiny gem of an island.  It's a two-hour ferry ride from our house, but it's a blast once you get there.  Bumper stickers read "Slow down you're on island time" and once you stay you fully understand. I love it for the great food (there is an awesome taco stand), the interesting and friendly people, and the relaxing pace of life.  Easter can't get here soon enough for me.

How was your week?

Tempting the Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon (review) - This was a great read, wonderful romance with great characters using two people attracted to each other, one working for the other makes this very interesting. Review coming this week

What I'm Reading Now:
Fall From Grace (Mad World #1) by Christine Zolendz (mine) - I left my Fire at home when I went to the gym and this was downloaded on my Kindle app on my phone so I started it and was hooked. It's great so far and I should finish it later tonight.

Imitation in Death by J.D. Robb (audiobook) - I'm 3/4 of the way through this and it's great, I think I'll listen to the next one as soon as I finish this one.
