Spring In Utah

Spring In Utah

Lets just say that spring in Utah totally sucks ass.  The pictures I am going to post were taken on a few different days so that I could show you just what the weather in Utah is like in the spring. The following two pictures were taken on Friday during my lunch.IMG_0166c

I shouldn’t have been shocked that it was snowing because that is pretty much how spring in Utah goes.  It will go from freezing to boiling over night.  The next picture was taken on Saturday.  I meant to take a picture first this when the snow was still on the ground but I didn’t get around to it until the snow had started to melt.  We had about 8 inches or so on our driveway when I woke up.

So basically spring in Utah is crazy and you never really know what you are going to get.  I hate spring and fall because I feel like I have to change clothes every 2 hours because the weather and temperature changes so much.  It has been raining and cold this week but it is better than snow so I will take it.

What is spring like where you live?

The Promise of Paradise by Allie Boniface

My Review

I read this book on about 5 hours because once it was started I couldn’t stop. I loved the characters and I loved were the book took place. The author does a great job of making me see things how the characters were seeing things and making me feel as if I was in the head of the characters. The only thing I could say was that at times I knew what was going to happen but I believe that is because I read so many books that I am usually about to figure out what is going to happen which really pisses me off because I do love to be surprised when I am reading.

About The Book

Contemporary Romance  Date Published: 2/14/13

Ashton Kirk, youngest daughter of a prestigious senator, fiancee of a hotshot attorney, and fresh Harvard graduate, is headed for a promising law career when scandal breaks apart her family. To escape, she rents an apartment in the sleepy town of Paradise, New Hampshire, where no one knows who she is.

Ashton hopes for solitude, but all bets are off when Eddie West, the town’s most eligible bachelor, moves in downstairs. Eddie likes his women and his cars shiny, sleek, and fast, and when he meets his new housemate, he wastes no time getting friendly. While he’s looking for a no-strings romance, though, he gets more than he bargained for in Ash, who sees through his bravado to the pain of a loss too fresh to mention.

Can two people from different worlds find common ground, a place to fall in love and build a future? Is it possible to find your soul mate in the place you least expect?

About The Author

Allie Boniface is a small-town girl at heart who’s traveled around the world and still finds that the magic and the mystery of small towns make them the best places to fall in love and find adventure. From the New England coast to Rocky Mountain hotels to tiny European bars, she’s found more character and plot inspirations than she could ever count. Currently, she’s lucky enough to live in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley with her own “Hometown Hero,” a guy who can fix, build, drive, and grill anything and is the epitome of the strong and silent type.

When she isn’t writing love stories, Allie is a full-time high school English teacher who gets a kick out of helping her teenagers negotiate the ups and downs of writing along with the ups and downs of life (because, really, she’s still trying to do the same thing!). And while she’ll continue to travel far and wide, Allie knows there’s really nothing like coming back to the place where the people who have known you forever welcome you home with open arms.

Nails Of The Month-Spring/Easter Nails

NailsI don’t think anyone who reads my blog knows that I get my nails done every 3 weeks and I am always doing something crazy with them because I think it is fun and it is one way I can do something crazy and if I end up not liking it then I only have to wait 3 weeks for it to go away.  People always like to see them on my private Facebook page so I thought that I would post them on my blog because you guys might like to see them and it will also give other idea’s for things to do on their nails.

This time we did bright colors because I love bright colors and they look a little bit like fun colored Easter eggs.  We used 3 colors this time and here are a few pictures of them:

Swept Away by Mary Connealy

My Review

This book hooked me from the first page and kept me going until I finished it and even after I finished it I was sad that it was over because I really loved the characters. I can’t wait to read the other books in this series because I love this one so much. I loved the main characters and the author does such a good job at making you feel like you are there with the characters in the story.

About The Book

When a cowboy focused on revenge encounters a woman determined to distract him, there’s going to be trouble in Texas!
Swept away when her wagon train attempts a difficult river crossing, Ruthy MacNeil isn’t terribly upset at being separated from the family who raised her. All they’ve ever done is work her to the bone. Alive but disoriented, she’s rescued by Luke Stone…so unfortunately, there are more chances to die in her immediate future.
Luke is on a mission to reclaim the ranch stolen from his family. But the men currently on the property won’t let it go without a fight. Luke plans to meet up with friends who will help him take back the land, and since he can’t just leave Ruthy in the middle of nowhere, she’s going to have to go with him.
But the more time Luke spends around the hardworking young woman, the more he finds himself thinking of things besides revenge. Will Ruthy convince him to give up his destructive path and be swept away by love?
