Hi Everyone!! Happy New Year! I know I was supposed to do this like last year but…. It didn’t happen that way! Better late than never! I hope you enjoy it all the same. I’m proud of myself because I did read a lot of books from my ever growing To Be Read list. I’m Happy! I had actually set a goal on Goodreads to read 40 books thinking I wouldn’t have time but I actually read over a 100 books. That’s an accomplishment to me! Hopefully I try to keep you updated on the books I look forward to reading for 2015! Enjoy! 🙂
Oh yeah! I got a Kindle for Christmas so I’m looking forward to reading a whole lot more books! If anyone can tell me where I can find free ebooks or discounted ebooks either Christian fiction or Classics. PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! Thank you kindly! 🙂

I’m always happy when I discover a new food or a new way that food is presented!
Best Food #1 – Everybody scream ice cream!! Wow! I didn’t know I would really LOVE ice cream as much as I did when I tasted the “QT(Quick Trip) Ice Cream”. It was so fresh, light, and sooo good. It was really a treat. It was vanilla flavored by the way. Me and chocolate has never got along and I would rather prefer vanilla or strawberry.
Best Food # 2– My Grandmother’s So Delicious Recipe. “Sausage Rigatoni”. It’s kinda hard to describe it but I know the main ingredients were Spaghetti Sauce, Rigatoni Pasta, and Sausage, and maybe cheese. I need to ask her about it but it was so GOOD that I daydreamed about it for days on end. It think it maybe was letting the sausage marinate along with the pasta sauce that gave it that extra kick. It was SO good! YUM!!
Best Food# 3– I could have never imagined that Chocolate Chips could get along well inside a Pecan Pie! I had never heard of a “Chocolate Pecan Pie” It was a splendidly well together match. I just savored it again and again. Yum! With each bite I knew I was slowly but surely falling in love! I wouldn’t mind having some right now! 😉
Best Movies that I watched in 2014!
