E-Bates Really Works

I was referred to e-bates as a way to make a little extra cash doing what I already do. I didn't want to post about this until I knew that it really worked. Well it does! I just received my first check for $10.59. Now that doesn't seem like that much, but that is from doing my normal shopping online in a couple of months time. By doing what I normally do I received extra money to use, a nice little bonus. E-bates gives you $5.00 in your account to start off when you register.

Twin of Ice, Twin of Fire, and Dead and Gone

Twin of Ice/Twin of Fire: Two Classic Novels Twin of Ice/Twin of Fire: Two Classic Novels by Jude Deveraux


My review

  rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love these two books. They are from only a handful of books that I have read over and over. I really enjoy reading the same story, but from different perspectives. Houston and Chandler are enjoyable characters that you can connect too easily. Now I cannot decide if I like Kane or Leander better. It really depends which story I am reading at that time.

Dead and Gone (Sookie Stackhouse, #9) Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris


My review

  rating: 4 of 5 stars
Now what am I going to do without any more Sookie Stackhouse books to read. While reading this one, I couldn't help, but wonder what more can Sookie withstand. The girl has been put through so much, but she can handle it. I am really interested in seeing where the future of this series is going.

Living Room Redo

We have been super busy around the house. Here is a list of things we have been doing;

  • Both girls are taking tumbling.
  • Melodye is volunteering at the library.
  • Melodye and Brooke attends two different summer reading program.
  • We have been to Six Flags a few times.
  • The living room, hallway, and foyer have been painted.
  • We tore up carpet in the living room and hallway.
  • We replaced the carpet with bamboo (It is gorgeous!!)
  • We bought new living room furniture.
  • Brooke is obsessed with Super Heroes like Batman, X-Men, Robin, Spiderman, etc.
Here are some pictures showing these things.
Bamboo flooring is from Costco, wall color is Classic Taupe by Behr from Home Depot, furniture is from Harlem Furniture. I love how it came together. 
Next on our list includes the flooring for the three bedroom, painting the kitchen, and putting in a backsplash in the kitchen. time and energy consuming projects, but will be worth it when we are finished.
