So the boy got his temporary driver's permit. May this post serve as your official warning. I do not have big enough cahones' to ride in the front seat while he learns the fine skill of driving. That being said, I sit in the back seat and try to meditate in an effort not to panic. However, there are moments when a quick intake of breath happens no matter how much I try not to let it escape. I've also become a Bill Cosby protege' by repeating the things I say in q...Read Full Post »
The Highlander's Dangerous Temptation - Terri Brisbin (5 stars)
|Posted by Rebecca M Avery on April 27, 2014 at 7:20 PM||comments ()|
Yes... as a hopeless romantic, that also includes historical romances. I have two favorite authors in this genre of romance novels... Terri Brisbin and Michelle Willingham. Having recently looked at Michelle's blog about her time spent watching the photo shoot for one of her books, I noticed this book based on the fact that it was the same cover model as was on Michelle's book. And what a hottie he is... geesh!
Anyway, as I read the book blurb, I figured out th...Read Full Post »

Listen to ridiculous stuff during the 6:30AM car ride to school (or whereever). This morning's selection was an old Lionel Ritchie CD I found. Even in his nearly catatonic state he managed to look over at me in complete disbelief.
Result = "This should be illegal this early in the morning. Seriously, Mom... anything else and I won't complain. Swear it on my life."
I simply smiled, turned it up and sang along. It brought back memories of roll...Read Full Post »
Where are my shoes?
|Posted by Rebecca M Avery on April 15, 2014 at 4:20 PM||comments ()|
I am just as bad for leaving my shoes laying around as my kids. However, as the adult this is allowed... right? Do as I say, not as I do, etc.
Now that my teenage son is considerably bigger than me with MUCH larger feet, rather than searching for my own shoes, I just borrow his. I can put my feet in them and not have to lace them up or anything. I just stomp around attempting to keep my feet from falling out of them. I go where I need to go and then take them ...Read Full Post »
Hopeless - Colleen Hoover (4 stars)
|Posted by Rebecca M Avery on April 9, 2014 at 6:35 PM||comments ()|
So this book recommendation came by way of a feed from Amazon within Facebook, indicating that it was a free download (which only lasted a few days I believe). Having seen the book and heard others talking about it, I’ll admit… I got curious. I’m not normally a young adult/new adult reader. However, there are always exceptions to the rule. This book was an exception. Though not for the faint of heart or anyone easily offended by realistic and frank discussions of topics...Read Full Post »
Bad boys... bad boys... whatcha gonna do?
|Posted by Rebecca M Avery on April 5, 2014 at 6:20 PM||comments ()|
When your teenage son goes wandering off with his friends (say at a sports event) and within 5 minutes you hear police sirens... call his cellphone and ask him what he is doing. If after hanging up a little while later you happen to hear more sirens and he doesn't call you... call him again.
RESULT= By nights end any siren he hears he will immediately call you (great checking in ploy btw) and assure you that the police are not coming for him or any of the friends he is with...Read Full Post »
When You Dare - Lori Foster (5 Stars)
|Posted by Rebecca M Avery on April 3, 2014 at 8:00 PM||comments ()|
When You Dare is the first book in Lori Foster's Men Who Walk the Edge Of Honor series. I decided to re-read this book as it is a favorite. This story follows a hunk of a mercenary named Dare Macintosh, who infiltrates a human trafficking ring in Mexico to save a close friend. Upon finding her, he also rescues another woman in serious need of his help. Thus, we meet Ms. Molly Alexander.
Likes: The entire book revolves around Dare and Molly trying to figure out who is behi...Read Full Post »
Head over Heels - Jill Shalvis (Four Stars)
|Posted by Rebecca M Avery on March 30, 2014 at 11:00 AM||comments ()|
As I've mentioned before with other reviews... You will notice that I only post about books that I know I will finish and that I at least somewhat like. I was raised that if I don't have anything nice to say about something... just don't say anything. However, you will find that only books that I couldn't put down and end up re-reading multiple times (even years later) make the five star list.
Head Over Heels is the third book in Jill Shalvis' Lucky Harbor series. This sto...Read Full Post »

Eat... Then brush.
|Posted by Rebecca M Avery on March 24, 2014 at 12:15 AM||comments ()|
Asking repeatedly what they are eating now or if they've brushed their teeth. A minimum of five times a day is required.
Result = "YES MOM! I've brushed my teeth today! And just because I'm passing through the kitchen doesn't mean that I'm eating something!"
