Doing a little Christmas shopping at Walmart and I came across this baby for 97 cents.Lorelai didn't even realize it, but she clearly needed this for her tub time!Seriously, guys... how adorable is this?! #baby #fun
With my latest obsession with Anne of Green Gables (yes, I'm 32 years old and am just now discovering this series. I'm behind the times... alriiiiiiiiiiiiight?) going strong, I decided to continue on with the series and was pleased to see that all of the audiobooks are available on my free audiobook app (public domain, woot woot!) I enjoyed Anne of Avonlea. Anne is growing up, but still has the same whimsical sense of wonder and beauty that 11 year old Anne made us fall in
I'm angry at my friend Lauren for just calling my attention to this at 5:30pm on a Friday. Although, I suspect that I wouldn't have gotten half as much work done this week if I knew about this earlier. John Green talks about literature. Okay, okay... so I have yet to read any of his books. He's so adorably geeky and so passionate about his love of literature. It's official... I have a new nerd crush. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSYw502dJNY&list=PL8dPuuaLjXtOeEc9ME62zT
I just registered to hear Wally Lamb speak at the Ferguson Library in Stamford, CT on Dec 5th! My friend, Rebecca just called the event to my attention and I am SO in!

Today, I bring to you another installment of... Tales from the Toyota! My most recent download from Audible.com was We Are Water by Wally Lamb. I had read a bunch of his most famous books... I Know This Much Is True, The Hour I First Believed, She's Come Undone. I've always really enjoyed his writing... even if it can occasionally leave you totally emotionally wrecked. We Are Water was no exception. This particular book was different from his others as it unfolded a single
Unlike most of my peers, I've never been big into video games. My hand-eye coordination is just bad enough to be dangerous (and embarrassing). I will admit, I had a brief love affair with The Sims. What can I say, the siren song of unlimited Simoleons (thank you, Rosebud!) and that hunk of man Bob Newbie (a dirty wifebeater covering a beer gut is sexiness personified) called to me. But this game might manage to force me to expand my gaminghorizons: http://www.buzzfeed.com/
Why does Don Quixote keep coming back to haunt me? I'm just sitting here, minding my own business and reading The Art of Eating by MFK Fisher... and she just has to mention that loon while I'm reading about lovely things like baked apples and rice pudding! I'm never going to escape him... Not fully. It's my lot in life. #donquixote #migueldecervantes #theartofeating #mfkfisher
You might remember when I got this awesome gift from a great friend who is possibly the world's best Secret Santa.Well, Lorelai finally fits into it! And if I do say so myself... she's rockin' it! I'm totally okay with my child being free advertising for a fictional diner in a make-believe town. If you want one for your progeny... go here! #baby #fun
So, with my recent obsession with audiobooks, I've decided to add a new series to the BW&R Book Challenge "fun" book posts. Along with Deep Thoughts From Damp Tresses (books I read while I'm drying my hair), I now would like to introduce to you... Tales from the Toyota! For our first installment, I downloaded a free copy of Anne of Green Gables from an audiobook app I have downloaded. As these books are in the public domain, they are provided free by LibriVox and read by vo
And yet another installment of Deep Thoughts From Damp Tresses brings us Haley's "other" book, Queen. My review of this book comes to you via another conversation with BearAllen's resident Slavery/Civil War/Regency/Sewing/General Snarkery Expert, The Hot Mess from Hot Mess, More or Less. Let's just say, at the end of this book, tears were shed... followed by the desire to read something light. This is the one time that I feel that I wouldn't be faulted for picking up a copy o
