Welcome to My Journey Rereading Gone With the Wind

Today is the day I start my journey of rereading Gone With the Wind. The first time I read the book was the winter after I graduated college. I think it took me two months to read it cover to cover. But I was a fan long before that. I was a has cGone With the Wind goner from the first time I saw Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) standing at the bottom of the Twelve Oaks stairs the day of the barbeque. In some ways I think my love of Rhett Butler is a reason why I am still single. He has given me a false reality. I’m looking for a man with the perfect mix of pure southern gentleman and bad boy, just like Rhett. Thank you for coming on my journey with me. It might get a little bumpy along the way but it will be fun.

Catching Up

I know I having been posting much lately. I have been a busy woman: between traveling (Cumberland Falls for New Year’s and Gatlinburg or my Birthday), family functions, work, kids, and planning my next Disney Trip. But I am going to start making time for me and my blog again. So first lets play catch up.

Travel

As I mentioned briefly we spent New Year’s in Cumberland Falls and mine and my mom’s birthday in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. I really missed the mountains and it was really good to get back to them. I hope we can get there a little more this year than we did last year. I love that mountain air. My next Disney Trip is just around the corner so I am looking forward to that right now.

Reading

I started a new series while I was in the mountains; Smoky Mountains Matches by Karen Kirst. I have only read the first book but I really enjoyed it. I still need to finish the Dare Island Series and now get into this series more. But first I am going to reread Gone With the Wind. My journey begins Wednesday.

Kids

The kids and their mommy went to Cumberland Falls with us but not Gatlinburg. I love spending time with them but one weekend in a months time is okay, I really can not handle two weeks in one month. I pretty much pick the two younger ones up at day care every Tuesday, so we are getting some quality Auntie Time in.

I guess that is about all.

Goodbye 33

As the sun sets on my last day of 33 I can’t help but wonder, where has the time gone? It feels like just yesterday I was turning 30 and now 34 is just a sleep away. And I will be closer to 35 than 30. I know you are only as old as you feel but it’s still a weird feeling watching these numbers go up. So goodbye 33, tomorrow 34 will be upon me.

LuLaRoe

I have not jumped on the LuLaRoe bandwagon like a lot of people have. One, this Body is not made for tight leggings. Two, if pants are not black I don’t wear them. Three, even if I wore colors those are too much. But I bought a pair because a lady I work with was hosting a party. I can count on one hand the number of times I have worn them, to bed. But let me tell you, since the temperature has been dropping I think they are my favorite thing to sleep in. They sure keep you warm on these cold nights. So I have to admit I have bought a second pair, but that will probably be my last pair.
