Hannah and the Highlander releases tomorrow!


Don’t miss Sabrina York’s scorching new Highlander release, the first in a series about the untamed Lairds of Scotland!



Highlanders are her weakness.
Hannah Dounreay has no time for suitors who only seem interested in her family’s land, which she manages as well as any man. If she marries, she wants to be loved for the educated, independent woman she is. But when a strong, silent-and spectacularly handsome-Highlander saves her from a violent attack, her heart is stirred. Who is this man? And if he asks for Hannah’s hand, will she be able to resist him?

Love is the most powerful weapon of all.
Alexander Lochlannach, Laird of Dunnet, has no time to lose. The Highlands are in an uproar as clans battle for land-without mercy-and Alexander can’t afford to fall for the wildly attractive, strong-willed Hannah. What’s more, he has a desperate secret, one that could destroy them both. But as their attraction turns into an all-consuming passion, Alexander has no choice but to prove to Hannah that he’s the only man for her-body and soul…in Hannah and the Highlander.

124 Days Until Christmas!!!


my face

Most people don’t want to hear about Christmas until Thanksgiving when a lot of people venture out to do Black Friday shopping.  I personally like to do my Black Friday shopping from my home on my trusty computer.  Nothing is worth going out in the crazy crowds.  That is what brings me to todays post.  With only 124 days left, we have plenty of time to start saving for Christmas & we even have time to start shopping now.  This is the time to get the easy gifts out of the way.

Do you purchase teacher gifts? Once you find out if your child’s teacher is male or female you can start shopping.  Pinterest has a lot of cute ideas for teacher gifts.  If your child goes to religion, bible study or is involved in sports and needs to get gifts you can start shopping now or  start saving money for gift cards.  Do you bake and give your homemade treats as gifts?  Now is the time to stock up on containers for cookies or chocolate chips, Aldi’s has great tasting chocolate morsels for half the cost at other stores.  Do you use gift bags?  Dollar Tree has an assortment of colors that you can purchase now & have them on hand.  Don’t know where to store these things, Dollar Tree also has a garment bag that you can buy & store all your gift wrap supplies in a closet or behind a door.

Save on Christmas Decorations.  With the weather still nice, go through your decorations now.  Check to see if you need new lights.  If you have broken strands of lights, hold onto them.  The last few years at the beginning of November Home Depot has a Christmas light exchange.  In the past they have had a coupon good for $3.00 off a set of lights.  Last year I was able to purchase 5 strands of LED lights for only $3.00 per set with a coupon.  There was a limit of 5 and you need to bring in 5 strands of old lights, but it was worth it.  Bonus, you are recycling old lights.  Another way to save on décor is keeping the stuff you  have in good condition.  Purchase the large totes & store things in them to keep them from getting wet or destroyed by pets.

Best advice, Don’t get overwhelmed, we do still have 124 days left, so start early take it slow so you can enjoy the holidays & not stress over them.

Have a wonderful week!!!

Review: Mommie Dearest By Christina Crawford



If you ask me what my favorite movie is, depending on what time of year it is, I will either say A Christmas Story or Mommie Dearest.  The movie has some of the best quotes.

While this movie makes for great quotes, you have to think to yourself, someone lived this life.  I saw Cristina Crawford on a game show type program and got more interested in her real and full story.  That was when I started my quest to find the book Mommie Dearest.

I started enjoying other authors works and became on line friends with many great people.  I figured all of these book lovers here, let me put out the question.  Does anyone know where I can find the book Mommie Dearest?  I received an email from a wonderful friend and blogger, The Reading Addict.  The blogger from The reading addict graciously gifted me a copy of the book.  I am a fast reader, but decided to take this story slow.  The depth of abuse this poor girl endured at such a young age, by both her mother and peers and caretakers is horrendous. But today I decided I would finally sit down and completely read the book.  I was shocked to see that child abuse was swept under the rug especially for a high profile actress such as Joan Crawford.  She seemed to have many demons and unfortunately died without letting her children feel they know who the real Joan was.  I go back to the movie when one of Christina’s many “uncles” tells her to stop acting, the character just cries on the bed saying, “I’m not Acting”.  After reading the book, I get the sense that’s all she knew how to do.  This book was written in 1978 and I do hope Christina Crawford is living her happiest life.  If you can get your hands on this book I suggest you read it.  Thank you to my friend for the gift of reading this book!!!
