Janet Evanovich: Stephanie Plum Series

I have been reading the witty Stephanie Plum series for the past 3 months now.  I finished reading them this weekend.  There are a total of 18 books and the 19th book comes out in November.  I will definitely pre-order it!!

The books are about a girl named Stephanie who is a bounty hunter with lots of attitude.  She is quite possibly the worst bouny hunter in the Trenton area.  She makes captures off of luck and just the simple fact that all of her FTA's are caught by suprise by whatever crazy thing Stephanie ends up doing.  Her cars are always getting blown up, wrecked, or stolen. 

She is in the middle of the longest lasting love triangle ever.  Either guy would be a great pick.  Morelli, her on-again, off again boyfriend is more husband material.  Ranger, her mentor and sometimes lover, is very mysterious but lots of fun! (I'm definitely leaning towards team Ranger, especially after Smokin Seventeen!!)  Her partner in crime is a previous ho named Lula.  Lula is quite the character and you will literally laugh out loud at the things that come out of her mouth!

These books are great!  If you haven't read them then you need to go out there and purchase the first book, but beware.... They are addicting!!

Three Things Thursday

1.  I know I haven't blogged in over a month!  I just get soooo busy and tend to put things on the back burner for later.  I have been working on our house and the more I work on it, the more I feel like that I am not getting anything done!  Very annoying and frustrating.  BUT when I step back and think about what the house looked like just 4 weeks ago, I notice how far we have actually come.  My mom bought this beautiful potted plant/flower for our front porch.  Let's just say that I am the opposite of a green thumb.  I did everything that I was told to do to take care of it AND I followed the directions that came with it, but somehow still ended up killing it.  Maybe one day I will be good at taking care of plants....

2.  It seems like everyone around me is having a baby or getting preggo!! I for one am not ready for that and am staying away from new borns for the time being.... I know you can't really get baby cuties, but I just don't want to take the chance! haha People keep asking me if I have baby fever and no, no I don't. I'm not sure if I will actually ever have "baby fever" I get PUPPY fever! :) This past weekend Tanner and I added to our family, a baby laboykin. He is a lab and boykin mix and just has the cutest personality! We made a decision that Max would be our last animal addition to the family. Living in the city has its limits and we just don't have enough room for any more animals! Well....maybe a bird or fish...? I'm just kidding!

3.  Is it really June?? Man has this year gone by fast!  I guess with all the excitement of being a newly wed, being promoted and purchasing a new home has just made this year fly by.  Next month will be a year that Tanner and I have been married! CRAZY!  People always say that the first year of marriage is the hardest.  Well I'll tell you what I have learned... Yes it is hard, BUT you just have to learn to ignore things.  Like the fact that that your significant other throws his clothes on the floor.... not even a foot from the laundry basket.  I mean come on, just sneeze and your clothes will make it into the basket.  But instead of starting an unnecessary argument over nothing, just let it roll.  Save your energy to argue about the more important things! haha!!  I'm just kidding.  Try your best not to argue but instead have a conversation.

I hope everyone has a marvelous Thursday!!
