ugh

With our 2 year anniversary rapidly approaching I'm peeling through hundreds (well maybe not that many) of websites in search of a creative gift idea. And guess what I found...crap...well not literally but it might as well be. So the traditional 2 year gift is cotton...one would think that would be easy, but its not. Since hubs is a cynic by nature and is not a huge fan of lovey dovey stuff its pretty hard to find an anniversary gift. The ideas that seem to be most common on these websites are: afghans with your wedding picture on it (really, ugh), bathrobes with your initials monogrammed on them, Egyptian cotton sheets, personalized pillow cases labeled "his and hers", and other cheesy sweatshirts and t-shirts. Seriously...the wedding anniversary market for male recipients could not be more limited. I can literally picture John's eyes rolling with every "suggestion" from these websites. If anyone has a good idea please email me....I'm begging you.

cute

If you're looking for a cute romantic comedy here's a couple that I would recommend:



Align Center


handle with care

I read/listened to this book a few weeks ago and I'll have to say it was my least favorite Jodi Picoult book so far. Seriously, it was a tough read (as in a little heart wrenching) and then the ending wasn't so great. I'm just saying I don't really recommend it...
