I have a little random update for you and some pictures! Pictures are always fun! I’ve had a pretty good weekend and I am sad to see it go. This is an update about my weekend and a couple bookish related talk.
I was looking at all my books last night (I’m sure I’m not the only one that stares at their books with happiness and maybe even a little overwhelming feeling that you have so many to read 😛 ) and then I picked up a few off the shelf that I recently bought and can’t wait to read (you know, to admire more closely). I turned to the boyfriend and told him that the reason why I never read the books I’m so excited to read is because I know once I read it then it’ll be a long time before I pick it up again. It was actually sad to think about, to be honest. I rarely reread books, because there are just so many books that I want to read.
Feel free to ignore the crappiness of these three pictures. 😛
I decided that is my excuse for not reading all the books that I buy and never read. Let’s see, example: Emmy & Oliver was one of my most anticipated book releases this year and I bought it when it was released. It’s still sitting on my bookshelf unread! I want to start using my book jar more, so I can finally get to reading all these books. I also need to use it properly! I had a rule that I would allow myself to draw two books and I have to read one of them. WELL…when I do attempt to use my book jar, I draw a book, decide I don’t want that one, draw again. And that goes on and on and on until finally I pull one that I want to read. LOL! I think I’ll update my book jar sometime next week with all the new books I got and haven’t added yet; then start using it again, the RIGHT way! Haha.
So I am currently reading Asylum, which is an interesting read so far. I’m a little over 100 pages in and I was hoping to finish it this weekend. I didn’t finish it, sigh. I probably could finish it today, because I only have 200 pages left, but this dang reading slump is killing me. WHY!?! I feel like I am slacking on my blog, because I’m not reading as much as want to read. I really want to get some reviews out there for you guys!
On Friday after work, my mom, aunt, and I went out to eat. We went to this place called Moonlite Diner and it was so good! They have so many food choices and dessert choices. They had cheese fries and I LOVE cheese fries so much. I could probably eat cheese fries forever.
sliders & cheese fries.
I didn’t get any dessert, because I was so full from all the food. My mom and aunt got ice cream sundaes though and those things were HUGE! It looked so good. I am definitely going back soon and get one, because they looked so amazing and I wish I had taken a picture to prove how amazing they looked.
Yesterday (Saturday) I went to a pumpkin patch/Fall harvest festival with my cousin, her husband, and their son. It was a pretty good time and I’m going to go again next weekend with my family. They had some pretty huge pumpkins for so cheap! I was able to pick up a pumpkin and I plan to get another one next weekend.
My pumpkin and it was only $8 and it’s pretty big!
I love pumpkins so much, lol. Lauren (author of Shattered Blue – READ THIS BOOK – only $3.99 on Kindle) and I have been obsessing over pumpkins all week together. We decided that she should come to Florida, so we can have a pumpkin extravaganza and I should go to Kauai, so I can take amazing sunset pictures.
My family and I went out last night to the bar down the street and they had a bunch of pumpkins and squash decorating the tables and they also were giving away pumpkin carvers that you could take home. My older sister and I decided to carve a squash, lmao. We probably shouldn’t have done that to their decorations, but I can always buy them a new one, lol. They didn’t seem to care though when they did finally see it.
We later found out that it wasn’t a squash though and that it was a gourd. My mom said it was a squash and you always believe your mom right? 😛 Anyway, it was fun and it turned out cute. lol.
I also went to the Goodwill by my house and found four books. It’s been so hard not having money to buy all the books I really want. I’m glad I was able to find four books at Goodwill though and it only cost me $6. There’s been a lot of things I wanted to do this month, but haven’t been able to and can’t. Being adult is so hard sometimes! I miss when I was a kid and never had to pay bills.
I am excited that the boyfriend and I are going to Cape Coral for Thanksgiving though! I think we’re going to go the day before Thanksgiving and stay overnight. We haven’t been able to really get over there as much as we want to. It’s about 2.5-3 hours away, but our work schedules are so different and he has to ask for days off in advance. If he had weekends off then it would be amazing, because then we can do so many other things. We never have a full day off together unless he requests a day off. I work his days off, he works my days off.
the boys with our pumpkin!
dax & colbyjack.
That’s basically my weekend! Today I am not really going to be doing anything. I may attempt to at least knock out another 100 pages in Asylum and then probably watch Goblet of Fire. I have to order it On Demand though. ABC Family is doing a Harry Potter movie marathon all weekend, so I’m recording 5-8 so I’ll have them and not have to pay to watch them. They are playing all except Goblet of Fire. I read online that ABC Family doesn’t always have the rights to Goblet of Fire when another bigger TV network is playing it and HBO happens to be playing Goblet of Fire this weekend, which is why ABC Family isn’t playing it. Sigh. That’s so lame!! I don’t have HBO, so that’s why it’s even lamer, lol.
Anyway, I am rambling! I hope you are having a great weekend! ❤

Asylum sounds good although i have not gotten it yet. I get what you’re saying about not reading the books you really want too read. I sometimes get a book I have wanted to read for a while, yet it will sit on my shelves for years unread lol. Right now I am, reading Outlander. I like it although it is a long book. I probably will not read it all sadly. Recently I bought a book called Variant. It looks like a fun read for halloween. And I have always wondered why ABC Family never shows GoF, but remember it being on HBO’S line up. btw I live in central Florida!
I really want to read Outlander, but the length of the book is kind of intimidating lol! One day I will read it though, haha. Variant sounds like an interesting book! It’s so strange about Goblet for Fire and kind of annoying that both can’t play it. That’s cool that you live in central Florida! 🙂
It’s such a novel idea to me that people actually buy pumpkins for the sole purpose of cutting faces onto them! It’s like something off a movie haha!! As usual your pets are adorable!!! I wish so badly that my rental allowed pets! I want a puppy!!! I total understand about leaving books you were excited about to sit on the shelf for ages! Like delayed gratitude! I was in a bit of a slump over the last 3-4ish weeks as well due to assignments and reading a non-exciting book but I think I may be over that now! I hope yours ends as well!!
Haha! It’s fun carving pumpkins! It’s messy and gross too, lol. That sucks that pets aren’t allowed where you live. It cost me extra to move into my place because of mine. I’m glad you’re getting out of your reading slump! Hopefully I do too. 🙂
