What I’m Reading 

This week I’m reading “Hollywood Dirt” by Alessandra Torre.  This is going to be one of the first movies on that Passionflix so I thought I would see what it’s about.  I have not finished it yet but I’m enjoying it so far.  

A Few Random Thoughts

🌸 I have been keeping my reading at the PG level lately but I think I might need a steamy romance pretty soon.  Any suggestions?

🌸 My thoughts are with those people who have had their vacations effected by the huge power outage in the Outer Banks.  I know how excited I am for my vacation I’m two months and how disappointed I would be if I couldn’t go.

🌸 I recently tried ogx eucalyptus mint shampoo and conditioner and I really like it.  So if you are looking for something new you might want to give ogx a look.

🌸 Last night I was going to watch Country Crush on Netflix, I had no idea it was a musical.  

🌸 Have you seen the new Vera Bradley bedding?  I want it!

🌸 I really want a magnolia tree.  My grandma had one and it was her pride and joy in her yard.  I took it for granted but now I wish I didn’t.

🌸 We are starting to price a Disney trip for early next year and Port Orleans Riverside, where we always stay and I love so much, is more expensive than some of the other moderate resorts.  Any suggestions on other moderate resorts?

Beauty and the Beast Book 

Last week I read the Beauty and the Beast book that was released to coinside with the movie release earlier this year.  At first I thought do I really want to read this.  Since it was adapted from the movie and I already saw the movie I thought for sure it would be useless.  But I am glad I did.  I found it to be a nice companion to the movie.  I thought it helped pick up on some of the little things that might have been missed in the movie.  Especially since this movie is different than the cartoon everyone is used to.  I would recommend reading it if you haven’t seen the movie yet or even if you have.  It’a an easy fast read so it really wouldn’t take much time.  

Southern Belle Reads: Children’s Classics

I was never big on reading when I was growning up and my mom will not pick up a non-kids book for nothing.  So I feel like I was deprived a little growing up.  I have never read Little House on the Prairie, Mary Poppins, Anne of Green Gables,  Little Women, or Alice in Wonderland to name a few.  But I am working on changing that.  I am making it a goal to read some of the classics that I missed out on as a kid.  You are never to old to read something new even if it is not in you age group.  

Starting a New Tradition 

When I was younger my parents usally only went out of town for their annivarsary and even then they would just go to Gatlingburg for the weekend.  But one those rare occasions that they did I would stay with my aunt and grandma.  When I was staying with my aunt she would read me a Beatrix Potter story.  She had the complete box collection and I loved those stories.  Last week while we had the kids I read the three year old the Tale of Peter Rabbit the first night.  I thought if anything maybe we would read a few different Beatrix Potter stories while we where there but he only wanted Peter Rabbit.  One night while we were reading he tiold me he loved me and another night after my mom offered to read he told her only I could.  The biggestes difference between my aunt’s reading to me and me reading to him; my Beatrix Potter collection is on my kindle, but it works.
