Books, books, and more books

I don't know about you, but I LOVE to read. I just love opening a new book and looking into "peoples" lives and reading their story. Anyway, I have been reading some books that I have really enjoyed, and I thought it would be fun to share some of the greaties with you in case anyone is looking for a new read. Here goes-

The Thief
The Queen of Attolia - Megan Whalen Turner
The King of Attolia

Hunger Games - Susan Collins ( I could be so wrong on that name )

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You - Ally Carter
Cross My Heart and Hope To Spy
( Okay, they might sound a little silly and little girlish, but I am a sucker for a cute love story, and it is all about a girls spy school-what could be greater than that? )

Dairy Queen - Catherine Gildbert Murdock

Hope some of you have some reading fun!

our house

Okay, I know that I am not very good at being consistent with my blog, so I thought that I should at least write to show that I am thinking of blogging...
There have been so many fun things that we have been doing, and I have some fun pictures to go along with them-so hopefully I will be able to get my act together and let you see some of the good times.
We have been putting a lot of time into our new house. Yeah!! I can't believe I get to write those words. Our house!! We decided to take the big plunge and we are getting a house. It isn't being built yet, so there isn't anything to show for all the hours we have spent pouring over house plans. But they should start on it next week. Hopefully I will be able to put pictures on of the progress.
It was actually harder for me to commit to than I thought it would be. It is such a big responsability, but I am excited to create our own place. So here we go...
