A glimpse into our crazy life

We’re not quite the Griswolds… July 21, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — emilyandfrank @ 4:30 pm

My sisters and I wanted to do something special this year to celebrate my parents turning the big 6-0. Since we were already making the road trip to OK for the wedding, we decided to head down a week early and spend some quality family bonding time at Lake Murray State Park. It was a busy week of swimming, hiking, fishing, playing cards, horseback riding, mini golf, and good ol’  times with the fam. Although, I think next time we’ll opt for a locale with cooler temperatures- the 100+ heat was a bit much.

Book reviews? July 6, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — emilyandfrank @ 11:00 am

That’s right- there’s finally going to be something other than dog pictures on this site…. book reviews! I heard through a friend that a couple of publishers will provide books for free to bloggers who are willing to post their honest reviews of the books on their blog. Since I’m an avid reader, am always looking for something good to read, and love to get free books (I dream of having a study filled to the brim with books, even if it goes against my typical tree-hugging ways), I decided to give it a try. I signed up with a Christian publisher and will be posting reviews from time to time here, with the first one up later today.

Happy reading!
