How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

Thrilling Thursday - Permission to be in Bed with Good Books

Thrilling Thursday - today I am thrilled to give myself permission to spend the day in bed with a good book.
Each Thrilling Thursday throughout the month of September has been dedicated to giving myself permission to do some wonderful things. I have taken a break from my children, followed a dream and taken a bubble bath. Today, I am going to spend the day in bed with a good book. When I was a young girl of nineteen, husband free and child free, I spent many Saturday's in bed with a pile of good books. It was wonderful. A two liter diet Pepsi, a turkey and cheese hoagie and some chips and I could get up at 8 am and stay in bed with my books until 9 pm or 10 pm that night and be happy.


I have not spent a day like that in more years than I can remember. I remember doing it as a young married woman, but not since I have become a mama. Today, I am giving myself permission to spend the day in bed with a few good books, noise cancelling headphones and some good gangsta gospel music. (For those who do not know,there is a big gangsta gospel music scene on the west coast of the United States.)  I am going to get out my party tray: fresh tuna salad, raw string beans, baby carrots, three cans of diet Pepsi, two bottles of Fiji water and some artisan chocolates. I am taking to my bed after I give the children breakfast and I am not emerging until after dinner. I am so excited.  Here are the fist three books my Kindle 3G and I are going to enjoy.


                                                  

My family has been warned, two months ago I planned this day and told them all about it. The little twin is threatening to bring me food and snacks all day. I don't think she quite gets the "Mommy likes to be alone sometime" idea. I have to find a way to make her understand that part of the fun of this day is being left alone. I am thanking my husband in advance because this day would not be possible without him standing between the children and me. I am excited about my mini staycation.  I have already fluffed the pillows in my mind. I have  special sweet smelling sheets set aside for the occasion. The chocolates I will be eating are divine to the taste, beautiful to the eye and fragrant to the nose.This Thrilling Thursday I am spending the day in bed with good snacks and good books. So, the question for you this Thrilling Thursday is if you spent the day in bed with a good book, what would it be?
