Book Tag Fun. 

The other night I came across Jessica’s Book Tag . It was fun to read, so I wanted to participate. 

Here are the questions:

What are you reading now?
Right now I’m reading For Women Only. Super cool read about how men’s minds work. 

What’s the next one on your list?
I need to finish the Circle Maker and Looking for Alaska. 

Do you prefer a Real Book or a Reader? A real book! I love to hold it or mark in it. I have a nook and it just doesn’t feel the same. 

Do you stop mid book if you don’t like it?
I have done this. And I have given those books away. 

Do you have to finish a chapter before setting the book down?
I used to HAVE to do this. Then I became a mom and have started to use post it’s as my book marks so I can know what line I left off on in case I get called at a moments noticed or my son wakes up with a bad dream. 

What’s the best series you’ve read?
This is a hard one, but I think I have to go with the Divergent series. I couldn’t put those books down. But The Hunger Games and Twilight were also top runners for this question. 

What’s the first book you remember loving?
The Babysitters Club I really enjoyed as an adolescent. But this is a hard question for me! I think my pregnant brain is getting in my way of remembering. 

Ever been in a book club?
In 2012 I think, my work had a little book club. We for sure read one book, we would get together and talk about it and after that I don’t remember why or how it stopped. 

Favorite book you read in school?
1984 by George Orwell. 

Least favorite book you actually stuck with?
Probably Macbeth when I had to read it for school. 

What book are you glad you didn’t give up on?
 1984, because I ended up loving it! 

Do you have a favorite genre?
I love Chick-Lit books, I love self improvement books, I love memoirs. For a while I was loving mystery, but the chick-lot and happy endings took over. 

What is the best book gift you’ve received?
The Fault in our Stars. I could read that over and over! 

Is there a book you wish everyone would read?
1984 & The Fault in our Stars 

What Author would you like to have a cup of coffee with?
Stephanie Meyer who wrote the Twilight series. How she started writing the series and her creativity just captivates me. 

If you could visit a place in any book, where would it be?
This is such a good question! I cannot think of my perfect answer, but I would love to visit all the different beaches that Nicholas Sparks writes about. 

What’s your favorite reading spot?
It used to be my red circle chair, but now I love reading in my rocking chair. What I love most is this one lamp I have, it makes me feel like I am in the moment to just let the day go and read. 

What popular book are you not a fan of?
I wouldn’t say I’m not a fan, I think most people are surprised I haven’t read any of the Harry Potter books. Those are super popular and I’m just out of the loop. 

What character from a book would you love to meet? Ruth in the Bible. 

What is your favorite children’s book?
I cannot remember my favorite book as a child, but I LOVE Pete the Cat now. I love reading it to my son and I love how the collection is growing!

I tag anyone who read this, and my beautiful friend Sheila who blogs about her readings. 😘

God’s Plan & V.S. Shower 


October 20, 2011 I was given the most amazing shower! Since its been four years I thought I would share about that season of my life… 

Four years ago I left a job that gave me a guarantee 40 hours every week, and went to a job that couldn’t promise me 10. I was about to get married, so many people didn’t think this was the time to make less money but God was telling me this was the move to make. 

I thought it was a nice season in my life. I was ready for a season of rest. I just graduated College where my class load was way more than full time, had been working full time on top of that, and was planning my wedding! I really liked this idea of having a slower season. 

Little did I know this job would be one of the best things to happen to me. I worked a couple hours a week with strangers who took me in as family right away. Within four months of working there they threw me an incredible bridal/lingerie shower. 

Every shower that was thrown for me I loved and I am so thankful for each of them! This one sticks with me differently because this new family I just entered surprised me with how much they loved, accepted, and cared for me. Every single woman showed up with something for me! I was blown away with their generosity and kindness. 

I laughed so hard!! It was the final countdown to the wedding, so last minute decisions had to be made and last minute things had to be purchased. Needless to say I was stressed. So this laughing that I did all night was exactly what I needed! 

I don’t think I could ever put into words how thankful I am for every woman in these pictures! If you are one of these incredible women, thank you! You have NO idea the impact you made on me. Your kindness, gifts, cards and your love touched me! I will never forget you girls, or forget this magical, fun, hilarious, and perfect shower where I got to be Mrs. Cullen! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! 

It’s crazy to look back on that year of my life. So much happened in such a short amount of time. I remember my dad really questioning my decision to leave my job and go to VS. I needed the money in this season of my life. But God had something so much better lined up than money. I met incredible women that I’m still running life with. I don’t live by a single one of them, but am in contact with half of them regularly. They still encourage me, inspire me, crack me up, support me, pray for me, include me, and love me! What looked like a decision of running away from a bad, toxic job, turned out to be the most encouraging decision of my life so far! 

Just another story of how God knows what he is doing. He sees the bigger picture. He saw that I needed these women in my life. I needed that love and support in my life. If Gods telling you to make a move, I recommend doing it! Take that step no matter what society, or people around you think. Gods big picture is so beautiful and much better than you could imagine. 

Thank you girls so much!!!
