An Award, A Movie, Books and Photography

I just finished this book this weekend and had to share with you all. This is a TERRIFIC book. If you want to see more of Karen's books go here and check it out. I know it may seem like I only read Karen Kingbury and she is one of my very favorites but I am also a big fan of Barbara Delinsky too. Barbara has a new book coming out on January 22nd called The Secret Between Us. There's a few authors that I'll get their books as soon as they come out or one of my sisters will and we will pass the book around. My sisters and I like the same authors, and I think we all agree Karen is one of our favorites. But if you haven't read Between Sundays yet, go an get it, it is well worth the read.

This is Karen's new book coming out February 5th. I've read the whole series and can't wait to read this one.
And yesterday afternoon I pushed myself away from the computer and went to see this movie. Yes it was hard to leave my computer but I did it, I've been really busy with work and the computer was starting to give me a headache. Kat seen this movie also and wrote a post about it also and I totally agree with her. I really liked this movie. It was just plain good, now I know not everyone likes the same kind of movies but I did like this movie. I think everyone knows about this movie by now. Two terminally ill men makes a wish list known as "the bucket list" before either one of them kicks the bucket. We should all make bucket lists.
And I was given an award from Lille Meg who is from Norway. Please take some time and go visit her, she is so sweet and don't be intimidated by the language barrier, she does write in some English. And leave her a comment I know she would love it. Anyway thanks so much Meg, that anyone would think I was amazing in any capacity is amazing to me. And because there are so many of you guys that I think are amazing I am passing this on to everyone who visits me. I am going to update my blogroll here as soon as I get a chance.
And I also wanted to tell you about one of my new blogging buddies, Myra's new photography website. Go here and check it out. She really is talented. That's about it for today, hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

I'm glad you liked the movie too. I really made me realize that you shouldn't wait to do the things you want to do...just do them. Life is meant to be lived.

Thanks for the info on the books. I posted about a book I'm enjoyed now. I'll look for these the next time I go to the library.

Congrats on the award. You sooo deserve it. Thanks for passing it on.

I'll have to get a copy of that book...I love to have a book like that to help me unwind before I go to bed. (Keeps my mind from racing all over the place).

Thanks for the great tip!
