Welcome, friend! Relax & rest awhile, if you please. I'm an ordinary girl, a follower of Christ, mama to Gabriel, & wife to Evan. Here in this little space of the online world, I share all manner of bookish things, including full content reviews, writerly snippets, encouragement for everyday life, and a whole collection of names & their meanings.

welcome to my blog

A + A Friday!

  • Getting up in the middle of the night to trim your toenails, because you can't sleep. . . and they were bothering you.
  • Inside your car in a Walmart parking lot, blocked in by the buggie guys. You wait patiently, while trying to look busy and hoping they don't see you.
  • This is the best GIF in all of humanity:
  • You did not know that mullets still exist.  O_o
  • When a guy tries to flirt with you while you ring up his items.  He asks if you are new, and you reply that you haven't been working there too long, and he says something along the lines of, "Well, I guess I should come by more often," and you reply "As long as you buy something!" You and another co-worker end up in laughs after he leaves.
  • When your cat tries to eat your phone and near succeeds in tearing off the screen protector!
  • When your grandfather misspells your name, "SHARA." You thank him and don't say anything, just joyfully smile!  XD
  • When you have to explain that your fuzzy, cupcake pants are LOUNGE pants, not pajamas. . .

  • The Athens Movie Palace opens this weekend AT LAST!!
  • Three new books arrived in the mail--can't wait to read 'em all!!!
  • This quote!
  • Planning a movie outing with friends to see CINDERELLA in March!
  • Receiving early Valentine candy from your grandparents.  Awww. :]
  • Burning a CD full of Big Band favorites:  Vera Lynn's "Faraway Places" and "White Cliffs of Dover," Louis Armstrong's "La Vie En Rose," the Andrew Sisters' "Bie Mir Bist Du Schon" and "Chattanooga Choo Choo," Glenn Miller's "In the Mood," Harry James & his Orchestra's "It's Been a Long, Long Time" (from Captain America: The Winter Soldier!!!) and the Chordette's "Mr. Sandman." Just to name a few.  :D
  • This makes me laugh:


Thank you for reading!  Have a lovely weekend, all!

    And that quote! And Cinderella! Ah, I can't wait to see it. ^.^

  2. Hahaha! A very funny A&A post, as always. ;) No wardrobe is complete without a pair of classy lounge pants, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
