Book Worm..."The Hunger Games"

Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanna Collins:

Let me start by saying WOW…I love this trilogy!!! Suzanna Collins did an amazing job, I felt like I was there in the arena trying to survive along with the others. If you’ve never read the books you must, you must, YOU MUST! The movie premieres March 23rd , hopefully it is as good as the books. Below is the movie trailer, it looks promising. 

The Hunger Games” is part Sci-Fi as far as the inventions/arena, laboratory made creatures, and futuristic time they live in. A bit of a romance triangle between Katniss (main character), her long time best friend Gale, and Peeta, the boy with the bread (you will know what I mean when you read it). More so it’s all about a survival instinct, not only in the “arena” where the games are held, also as the Mockingjay (leader of the rebels).  

“Hunger Games, Book 1”: The hunger games are held annually to remind the 12 districts of the control the Capitol has over the country of Panem. Each district sends 2 tributes, between the ages of 12 and 18, to an arena with the need to survive and fight to the death until only one remains. Katniss has volunteered to go in place of her 12 year old sister and as result faces many torturous obstacles in the arena. The monstrous act of killing another human being is not the only thing Katniss will face in the arena.
There are 24 tributes total…will they become allies or enemies, how will they survive, what other horrors could the Capital throw at them, who will remain standing at the final gong?

I don’t want to say anything about “Catching Fire” (book 2) or “Mockingjay” (book 3) because I’m honestly scared to ruin it. If I say too much you’ll know the ending to book one and so on. For those of you who have this trilogy under your belt, please comment and leave your thoughts/opinions.
Interested? Kindle Price- Between $5 and $8 for each download…I love my Kindle!

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...

1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Warming The Soul

The weather has been viciously cold in many parts of the United States this winter. If you are anything like me, that means hot delicious soup to warm the mind, body and soul. Soup is a comfort food staple and I feel like people are more drawn to it between October and March, that's especially true for my family. With Florida weather it's just almost too hot for soup any other time of year unless is storming and chilly out.

   Pinterest is my absolute favorite place to find new recipes, so I wanted to share a few of my soup pins with you. I've made all of these except one, which I'll make a note of below, and they've all turned out delicious.

1). Crab & Corn Chowder- This soup is absolutely delicious and hearty. For me, it was something different and unexpected. Growing up in Kentucky we didn't make soups like this, mom always served chili, potato, or broccoli cheddar soup because those are the southern specialties. If you make any of these soups, please …
