It's Friday!

We officially made it through the work week! YAY! I am pumped for a free weekend of nothing to do.

Did you see Adele is coming out with a new album? I just love her... I can't wait to hear it. Here is a single she released from the upcoming album called 25. The song is Hello. It is awesome!



Hopefully you have a great weekend!


Until next time,

Happy Hump Day!

Triple Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Hubby had a pitch-in lunch at school on Friday. I decided to make my traditional chocolate chip cookies and then throw a non-traditional cookie in the mix.

I made a triple chocolate- chocolate chip cookie! These were super rich, but good!

If you are up for something different and you're a chocoholic, give this a try!

Book Recommendations for October

Here are some recent books that I enjoyed.

Mythos Academy Series- by Jennifer Estep

I really enjoyed reading this young adult series. It incorporates action, adventure, romance, mythology, and mystery all into one high school! It's an easy read that keeps you wanting to know more. 

PLUS, it helped me answer a recent mythology Jeopardy question...Can we say invaluable information?!?

First Frost is the first book in the series. Here is the description:

I am Gwen Frost, and I have a Gypsy gift. It's called psychometry – that's a fancy way of saying that I see images in my head and get flashes of other people's memories off almost everything I touch, even guys. My gift makes me kind of nosy. Okay, okay, maybe a lot nosy—to the point of obsession sometimes. I want to know everything about everyone around me. But even I don't want to know the secrets my friend Paige is hiding or the terrible loss that will send me to a new school – Mythos Academy, where the teachers aren't…

Fall Break in Las Vegas

I am officially back to the land of the working people. P.S. I hate it. Can't we just always be on vacation? No? Okay, well I guess I'll just tell you what we did while we were on vacation.

We just got back from 7 nights in Las Vegas. Don't get me wrong, Vegas is still our city, but 7 nights was a little long. Our butts dragged all the way home!

We packed in a ton in the week we were there!

I always love being in Vegas during March Madness or during football season. Everyone is so pumped to cheer on their teams. Our football gear is always a huge hit!


We saw Nathan Burton's comedy magic show. It was awesome, we really enjoyed it. We got our tickets on Groupon.com for $10 each! You can't beat that!

We saw Zarkana at the Aria Hotel & Casino. 


Wow, this hotel is gorgeous and Zarkana was AWESOME. It was one of our favorites!



We also saw Love at the Mirage. The music was good, but it wasn't our favorite show. 


It didn't have the WOW factor that I feel like most Cirq…
