my gratitudes

Pearls and Peacocks

1. I am grateful that I can see the forest for the tress. That with age came my ability to no longer be myopic.At the ripe age of 32, I must think more and more about my future. Not just the present. 
2. I am grateful for my friends. They're so awesome. They're so freaking awesome.
3. I am grateful that this work week is over. YES! 

jumping for joy, falls around the corner

Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know about you, but I think I missed summer. It hasn't really been that hot here in Chicago, and now that we are in August, the temps seem to mirror fall. 

It saddens me to say this, but we appear to be in that limbo season better known as pre-fall. It's not exactly summer weather, but it's not exactly fall.  (insert sad face) I know you didn't want to hear it, but with temps ranging from the low 70s to low 80s, what else would you call it? I don't know if I should wear a sweater or a tank. I'm so confused. Typically, August is the hottest month of the year here, but not this year. On Monday, I woke up to 60 degree weather. Gasp! I had to look in my closet for something to wear, and that's when I saw it, my jumpsuit. I paired it with a white t-shirt and threw on my denim jacket. It's such a sad day when you have to layer in the summer.

Anywho, a light bulb went off in my head. AHA! Jumpsuits are perfect for this weather. You can dress them up or dress them down. You can layer them or wear them as is. With a denim jacket or a moto. With heels or sandals or sneakers. 

Translation=The jumpsuit will transition you from summer to fall in less than 3 seconds (and its versatile).

So I challenge myself to find a few more jumpsuits like these to add to my collection because clearly fall is a coming whether we want it to or not.

bookworm review: earning yancy by c.c. wood

So this is the second book in the Not Safe For Work (NSFW) Series by C.C. Wood, and I had high expectations since I loved In Love With Lucy.  As you can see from that review, I was hoping that the second book in this series would be about Grier, but to my surprise, it was about Yancy. A divorcee with a manipulative ex-husband named Cooper who suddenly reappeared after the federales coming after him for child support.  Thank goodness that Yancy opened her heart to her co-worker Charles.

Here are my random thoughts on this book in no particular order:

#1 I love how Charles was the complete opposite of Cooper. Where Cooper was an asshole, Charles was endearing.  Where Cooper could care less about his daughter Carolena, Charles fell in love with the adorable tot immediately.

#2 Speaking of Charles, how adorable is he that Bella’s Lullably was his ringtone.  How adorable was he that he liked romantic comedies. I loved how much he adored his family and Yancy (+Carolena). How adorable was he that he called her Nancy instead of Yancy. (Okay, Yancy may disagree).

#3 I applaud Yancy for being open to love again. I’m happy she wasn't a bitter divorcee. She was hesitant but not resistant to Charles.

#4 I once again loved the friendship/sisterhood between the girls, and now I want to know more about Tanya. I swear each book I find a new girl to love. LOL!
