Poll | Drink of Choice While Reading

I’m always curious (for some odd reason) what people prefer to drink while reading a book.  Does your choice depend on the book your reading or just your drink preference?

Personally, I love drinking wine while reading.  So, just to be a little nosy I created a poll.



Happy Valentine’s Day #FiftyShades

So, I’m anxiously waiting to see Fifty Shades of Grey tonight with my fiance! Isn’t he sweet for taking me (along with all the other men who are being dragged to see the movie)?

I have seriously been obsessing over this movie FOREVER! Ok maybe not forever.  Just since I finished reading all three books in a week.  At that point, I thought it would be super amazing if they were made into a movies.  Then I heard that they were!  Dreams really do come true!

I’ve also been fantasizing about being the female lead in the movie, but perhaps I should keep that dream to myself considering the movie has already been released.

Well now I’ve got to figure out what to wear on my date night!

Who else is going to see the movie?  Did you read the books first?

Stories Unfolded | 2014 In Review (Official WordPress Stats)

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,400 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  Wishing you the best in 2015.
