My Randoms........

Just a couple randoms.

-So every couple of months I get on a reading kick. I really enjoy reading, but it's hard to find time unless I want to stay up super late because I can't put a book down. About a month ago, I downloaded the goodreads app. I love how I can track what I have read and keep a list of what I want to read. In the past couple of weeks, I have read two books.


I picked up City of Bones because I heard it was decent and that it was being made into a movie in the near future. It comes out in August. It's got a twilight premise with vampires, demons, wolves. I can't say I loved it but it wasn't horrible. There are a couple more books in the series.

I just googled and it looks like Divergent is being made into a movie as well. Coming out in 2014. Divergent has more of a Hunger Games feel to me. I really enjoyed it and will be reading the next in the series.

- I really hope I am not getting sick. I have woken up with a sore throat the past couple of days and now my nose is running like crazy. I have bad allergies so my nose always runs, but this is different. I have been drinking my Emergen-C and just recently started taking a multi-vitamin. I really don't want to get a cold.

- I feel like I am doing pretty good with my working out/eating better goal. I have worked out quite a bit and have cut down on my portions and tried to stop snacking. I really hope I can keep it up and not give up. It feels different this time. I really hope it's different.

- So my awesome sister won a trip to Los Angeles. She gets to take another person with and she is taking me! I am super excited. It will be my first time in California and we want to maximize our time and do as many fun LA/Hollywood things as we can. Any recommendations? We go in March.

  2. That's so exciting!! My hubby and I just took our first trip to LA this past summer and had an amazing time! We did a bit of the Hollywood touristy stuff, but tried to venture out and take advantage of the rest of Cali too. My favorite activities we did were probably paddle surfing and going to the vineyards.
    Here is a post on it if you want some ideas for your itinerary....

    1. Thanks for the info! I will check it out. We won't have much time and want to go to Disneyland so we will probably stick around the Hollywood area.

  3. I LOVED Divergent!! I'm so excited they're making it into a movie!

  4. i'll have to add Divergent to my "want to read" shelf!
