Sunday Salon

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Well, remember how last week I said I wanted to finish Before I Fall AND Winter Garden on Sunday and then read 3 MORE books on my work trip? Haha. I'm so overly ambitious. I finished Before I Fall on Wednesday on my flight back home and just finished Winter Garden yesterday. Forget about the extra 3!! I ended up not having nearly as much time to read as I thought I would. This was partly because there was some down time that I had free and instead of hanging out and reading I explored the surrounding cities a little bit. The other reason was because here in Florida, I'm used to having to wait outside the courtroom when I testify in a case. But where I was in North Carolina, all the witnesses are allowed to stay in the courtroom and watch the entire trial. So that's what I was doing with my other waiting time. Just for fun I've included a couple pictures of my trip up there. This was my first time ever in the mountains and it was an extremely scary experience for me!! I also hadn't seen snow in close to 10 years, so that was pretty cool.

Anyway, the review for Winter Garden will be up Friday. Check back tomorrow for a cool video involving some local Florida kids and reading! If you haven't already, check out the reviews I posted this week for If You Follow Me and Before I Fall. For today I will be reading (or finishing up?) The Unnamed which I started yesterday. I'm enjoying it so far. I've seen rave reviews for it, and my husband really liked it as well. I have another Magic game tonight. And at this one, my mother and a bunch of other women from Jazzercise will be performing at the pre-game show, haha! =-o Should be fun!

Those pictures are so pretty! I miss the mountains in North Carolina. We used to visit there all the time when I was a kid and lived in South Carolina.

Oh, those are lovely photos...and I hope you liked Winter Garden.

What fun to be in the courtroom the whole time!

It varied in my old job...sometimes the judge would let us in and other times, no.

I much prefer watching what is happening!

The pictures are lovely! I used to spend time in the North Carolina mountains when I was a kid. It's one of my favorite places.

Amanda -- that was my first time to the mountains EVER! I was terrified driving on the mountain roads, lol! But it was so pretty at the same time!

Juju -- thanks!

Laurel -- the winter garden review will be up friday... at first I was really bored with it but then all of a sudden it got soooo good!!! I prefer watching the trials too! (although I was disappointed that I didn't have the reading time either, hehe)

Stephanie -- thanks! It was definitely very pretty there!
