Frozen Suites Still Available

Seriously, you didn't get your Frozen tickets for the Palace of Auburn Hills between March 12 and March 15 YET??

I think that show sold out really quickly :(

But I have news that can redeem you with your child who has their heart SET on attending. Check out the suite deals below. All include parking passes for three cars, and a suite on the 100 or 200 level gives you the option to choose a menu.

Yes, you can still attend Frozen for less than $100/person.To reserve your suite, call 248-377-8477.

Reading Challenge - Book 4

My fourth book read for the reading challenge was Pitch Perfect by Mickey Rapkin (to satisfy #3 on the list - A Book that Became a Movie).

I read it because I LOVE the movie and am very excited for part two of the movie to come out in a few months. The book was only a loose basis for the movie though.

I did get through the book, but it wasn't the fastest read I've picked up lately. The book Pitch Perfect was sort of a history of three prominent groups in college a capella - the Divisi (who the movie was loosely based on), the Hullabahoos, and the Beelzebubs.

While the history was interesting and I've noticed a few things in the movie that were incidents (or costumes) from the mentioned groups in the book, loving the movie really was not a good enough reason to read the book. Sort of. I'm glad I read the book, but I also like trivia and details. There were a LOT of characters, which made it a bit challenging to keep up with sometimes, but it was about the real people in the industry, so it isn't like we could have left people out, right?

Thankful Thursday

Rockin it with an old-school list of some things I'm thankful for this time :)

  1. My wonderful kids
  2. My husband for taking such good care of us
  3. My beautiful new (to me) Durango for getting me around in the snow. My beloved Charger would not have made it out yesterday.
  4. My book of life - otherwise known as my Erin Condren Life Planner. (And my address book, and notebook, and...)
  5. Books. Whether they're the old-fashioned kind that I need to find my reading glasses to see the words, or on my Kindle so I can just make the words as big as I need them, I still love reading.
  6. Good friends and neighbors
  7. Direct sales. Including my own businesses with Perfectly Posh and Dove Chocolate Discoveries, and just the concept in general. Direct sales provides the opportunity to work for the compensation you need. The more work you put in, the more rewards you'll see (and it's ages 16 and older, for Posh!).
  8. My brain. I try to appreciate that I'm intelligent enough to take care of myself and my family, and generally feel like I know what's going on. Maybe that's more confidence than intelligence, but I'll take it ;)
  9. My house and community. I admittedly HATED moving out here initially, but I soon realized that I'm very comfortable here. It's similar to the community I grew up in, so I quickly felt like I could fit in. As far as I can tell, I'd be content to stay put forever. And this time, I mean it.
  10. This blog. Holy cow. Since March 6, 2002. Please leave me a comment. Let me know someone is reading. How did you find me in the first place?

Reading Challenge - Book 3

This book went much faster!

Don't be confused, but my third book finished, Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage, actually falls in the fifth category on the Reading Challenge (a book with a number in the title).

I really enjoyed this book. It's my favorite sort of book - likeable characters, in situations I really don't have to deal with. Pure entertainment.

Mo is a girl who is in search of her Upstream Mother, until she realizes that what she's got is probably better than anything else could be. But she's also figuring out that things aren't always what they seem to be. With her best friend Dale, they are not only learning secrets about those around them, they're solving a kidnapping and maybe even a bank robbery - non-stop action :)

I'm curious about the author's other book based on the same characters. While I'd probably like to read it sometime, I'm not sure where it would fit in the challenge right now, so I'll just keep it in the back of my mind.

Reading Challenge - Book 2

I've finished my second book for the 2015 Popsugar Reading Challenge. An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott satisfied the second requirement on the list: A classic romance.

I enjoyed it, although it took me longer to finish than I expected. Thank goodness for the library's e-loans. I did have to renew it once (since I 'checked-out' this one and the previous big book at the same time and couldn't finish BOTH within two weeks) but it was no trouble at all.

I found myself wanting to be a better person, like dear Polly of the pure heart. Since I don't read books and try to figure out the end (I do like a surprise!), it wasn't super-obvious to me how things would end up - although maybe it should have been. I did really like the last chapter, where everyone's situation was summed up neatly.
