Teaser Tuesday ::: The Indigo Spell {Bloodlines #3}

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.
"Then your priorities are off. This is a lot more important than his band of Merry Men. If we need to take out some evil sorceress before she gets you, then of course I'll help." He hesitated "With one condition."
Can you guess what the condition is?!
Go ahead. Guess.

Is it just me?!

Is it just me or do you have to watch A League of Their Own every single time it's on tv?! We are the members of the all American team - we come from cities near and far ... I know you know the rest.


Is it just me or do you wonder why some people find it so hard to flush the toilet?! C'mon ladies! Especially the women at a particular building on Shady Grove Road. Ain't nobody wanting to see that!

Is it just me or do you hope that the person who flicks cigarettes out the car window that their vehicle catches fire? Or is that mean of me?

Is it just me don't you LOVE this commercial with Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd? And I'm talking the whole commercial ... Not the edited down one they've been showing on tv.

Speaking of commercials-is it just me or do you HATE those Lincoln commercials with Matthew Mcconaughey? They annoy me so much - particularly the sound of his voice. "I was driving a Lincoln before anyone even paid me to" ARRRGGGHHH! So irritating. 
Is it just me or when ever you're driving behind a tow truck or car transport truck you think the cars are going to fly off and crash into you? Too Final Destinationish? I think they did that in the Bad Boys movie too.
Is it just me...or can you relate to any of these? Or do you have any "is it just me" wonders too?

Five Fave Pins to Get Me Organized...hopefully.

HEY HEY HEY!  I've been back on my Pinterest kick the past few days looking up organizational ideas for my move (that will happen eventually....hopefully...prayerfully). 
Here are my top five LOVES that I hope I will do in my next place:
LOVE this idea. I typically wear the same jewelry over and over again (usually whatever is on top of the jewelry box because that's just easier) but I think this would encourage me to wear different pieces. I'd do this on one of the walls in a WIC. Looks relatively easy to make too. Win-Win.
I absolutely - hands down - HAVE to do this once I get settled. I can barely open my drawers now because they are so crammed with cooking utensils.  The only thing is I don't have a woodcutterthingymajig so that may complicate things a bit but I will figure it out somehow.
If I have enough extra drawers I'd like to do this. I think it'll be much easier to access my spices then having to stand on chair and trying to see into my cabinet over the stove. This is neat and tidy and easy to access!
Now this I can do! I already have some of these clear containers, I'll just need to fill them up...with some yummy useable things!
I think I will opt out of having a fridge and just getting this wine organizer. It would make my life so much easier.

Fall?! Oh Hell No. Go away Fall aka My Fall Season Rant

I firmly say "No" to Fall.

Everyone is running around with their panties in a bunch because Fall is finally here.
Fall = pumpkin everything, squash, leaves falling from trees, no more humidity, football season ... Blah blah blah. You know what I say to that?!?!
That's #%^!.
You can buy a few extra boxes of pumpkin spice coffee and drink them any time of the year (duh!) and Trader Joes sells squash soup year round (hello!) and if you like the fall trees - there's tons of pictures on the worldwide web (google anyone?!).

Ugh. And need I remind you what happens after Fall?!?? Do you know? Huh? Do you?
Let me remind you what happened after Fall last time:
MD snow storm 2014
Mmmhmm. Point Proven Right?
I STRONGLY say "Hell No" to Fall.

Yes I'm hating on Fall. Don't you agree?

Teaser Tuesday ::: Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.
"ALL HE COULD SEE, IN EVERY DIRECTION, WAS WATER. It was June 23, 1943. Somewhere on the endless expanse of the Pacific Ocean, Army Air Forces bombardier and Olympic runner Louie Zamperini lay across a small raft, drifting westward. Slumped alongside him was a sergeant, one of his plane’s gunners. On a separate raft, tethered to the first, lay another crewman, a gash zigzagging across his forehead. Their bodies, burned by the sun and stained yellow from the raft dye, had winnowed down to skeletons. Sharks glided in lazy loops around them, dragging their backs along the rafts, waiting.”  
Have you read this? Will you be seeing the movie when it comes out in December?
