I needed 15 double pocket folders for a sales meeting. Target was sold out of the plain colors. Debating using all beiber folders….. Maybe I should just run to office max

I travel for work and the hotel chain I use usually has some sort of free happy hour. Typically this happy hour includes a veggie tray, cheese, crackers and wine. One time there were quesadillas. This week I’m in west Texas and its wine, beer and a mashed potato bar. Toppings for the mashed potatoes are: cheese, melted cheese, gravy, ranch dressing and bacon.

“Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the
end of the day saying,
“i will try again tomorrow.”” Mary Anne Radmacher, Live Boldly (via larmoyante)

2014 book list update

8.When you are Engulfed in Flames- not as funny as the other David Sedaris one. But did you know his sister is the blonde lady from the fabric softener commercials?

9. 12 Years a Slave- It was a painful read. Not painful to read, just emotional knowing people could be this cruel. 

10. Beautiful Redemption- Book 4 in the series and THANK THE LORD there aren’t any more cause they ran out of plot big time. If they cut like 4 chapters out it would have seriously helped

11. Sense and Sensibility- It’s Jane Austen so obviously I liked it. But I wanted it to be Pride and Prejudice and it wasn’t. Still wonderful!

12. The Perks of being a wallflower- I don’t know what to do with this one because I would defiantly recommend it but it left a weird aftertaste for me. 

13. The Poisonwood Bible- LOVED this one. It had political commentary, poked fun of Baptists, family drama in the 50’s/60’s, a talking parrot, and was just seriously wonderful. I can picture my Favorite Poly Sci Prof reading this one with a drink on the beach. 

14.Grace Eventually- Anne Lamott is one of my favorites. She inspires you without belittling where you are. It’s faith I can relate too. 

15. The Screwtape letters- plot: a Demon instructing another demon on how to strategically screw people up.  Very creepy and thought provoking

16. Wuthering Heights- Every person in this book ends up miserable, alone or dead. If you’re into soap operas you’ll probably love it. 

17. HRC- The author really wants you to drink the Clinton koolaide and it’s totally biased. BUT it was interesting to see how all the different parts of Hillary’s staff works together and there are some fun side stories I hadn’t heard before

18. We bought a Zoo- I never saw the movie and loved the book. Apparently if you saw the movie you’ll hate the book cause they are very different. It was just a heartwarming story with some minor rabbit trails 

19. The Hiding place- I read this in 6th grade and have a much better appreciation for the story now. Such incredible faith to be in a nazi work camp and still be able to forgive your captors. 

20. The Lovely Bones- I was all in until the last chapter. (Spoiler alert) If I’m coming back from the grave it would not be to have sex in the back room of a motorcycle shop with a boy I kissed that one time. I think we can do better than that.

"Crazy isn’t being broken or swallowing a dark secret. It’s you or me amplified. If you ever told a lie and enjoyed it. If you ever wished you could be a child forever."— from Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen
