Maybe Journalism Isn’t For Me. I’m Thinking Bounty Hunter Instead.

Published July 31, 2012 by jrm17

News alert!  I am obsessed with Stephanie Plum books.  I don’t know Janet Evanovich but I’m pretty sure she could fit right in with me and my mama because she’s got us reading these books like nobody’s business.  She has one of the greatest writing styles I have ever read and has created characters that I truly love.  Heck, she’s got me thinking it would be a pretty good idea to ditch the whole college thing and become a bounty hunter (I’m so unsuspecting being so little and curly).  She has got me wishing I was Stephanie Plum, which is why we are going to talk about why she is so awesome (and weird in some aspects).

Work Isn’t Always a Terrible Pain

Published July 30, 2012 by jrm17

We all know I’m just a small, a small town girl (Yes, I was singing Kellie Picker in my head while I wrote that.  She’s one of my girls).  I’ve said a million times why I love living in a small town but it never really occurred to me until yesterday that I love working in a small town, too.  You see, somehow coming home from Pittsburgh and going straight to work without time to stop home made me love it even more.

I Back The Boys In Orange and Black

Published July 27, 2012 by jrm17

Yes, I love my O’s and baseball more than almost anything.  Yes, I will never change teams because my Orioles are my boys.  Heck, at this point they’re family (Actually, funny story.  My mom, aunt, and I had these two girls once convinced that I was Nick Markakis’ girlfriend.  Don’t judge.  It’s a goal.  Okay, maybe not but I was like 16 and a girl can wish, right?).  However, as much as I love my boys, they and their other fans (or maybe just people who show up at the park…not necessarily fans) still amaze me–even after 21 years of loving them (Yes, I even loved them as an infant).

Just Call Me Glenda the Good Witch

Published July 25, 2012 by jrm17

From Sabrina to Samantha to Cassie, I have always thought being a witch would be one of the coolest things ever. I’m sitting here watching The Craft and thinking the same thing I always think: wouldn’t it be awesome to have those kinds of powers–powers that could make whatever I wanted happen.  Yes, I know that with great power comes great responsibility and whatnot but I think I could handle it.  I’ve got a pretty big conscious and wouldn’t do anything that would hurt another person (too badly) and I would only do small things for myself.  So what would be my first things I’d conjure up?

If That’s What Men Want, It’s A Good Thing I’m Not Single

Published July 23, 2012 by jrm17

Okay, remember how I said I wanted to read The Manual: A True Bad Boy Explains How Men Think, Date, and Mate–and What Women Can Do to Come Out on To by Steve Santagati because I thought it sounded really funny from the preview on Amazon.  Yeah, one of the more stupid ideas I’ve had when it comes to reading books.  Let’s just say I was so disgusted by this book that I have yet to finish it and I’m more than halfway through the third Stephanie Plum, Three to Get Deadly.

Maybe Morelli and Stephanie Have It Right: Let’s Just Fight and Not Talk About Stuff

Published July 20, 2012 by jrm17

I’m not sure what brought it about the other day but we were lying around and talking when Michael said something about getting one of those books you fill out questions about your relationship and stuff together.  I thought it sounded like fun and instantly became obsessed with getting one.  Luckily, Jess-squared and I had lunch plans at the mall so I knew I’d be hitting Barnes and Nobel afterwards.  Michael met up with us, we bought All About Us and home we came to start filling it out.

I’ll Shake It for Luke Bryan, If He Shakes It for Me :-)

How about country boy shake it for me? 😉

Happy Birthday and Father’s Day!  Wait, what?  Yeah, we’re celebrating things a little differently in my house this year in that we got tickets to see Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean as part of my birthday present and part of my daddy’s Father’s day.  We are some big Luke Bryan fans in this house and Merriweather Post Pavilion is one of the best venues we’ve gone to for a concert.  I’ve had some good times there.  This was definitely a different experience though.
