A review of Seaside Letters

Seaside Letters A Nantucket Love Story by Denise Hunter. This is the story of Sabrina Kincaid and Tucker McCabe. Sabrina is a waitress who has fallen in love with someone she writes to online, that person comes to the diner everyday for coffee, and doesn’t know that the one he talks to online is Sabrina, or does he? Tucker has fallen is love with the woman he knows as Sweet pea online, he wants to date her in person, but she won’t agree to meet him. The story is a twist of online dating and the fact that Sabrina doesn’t want Tucker to meet her in person, because of something she has done in her past, so she goes about a cat and mouse game trying to avoid him finding out that she is the person he talks to online. Except he already know who she is and instead of just asking her out, hires her, Sabrina to find the mysterious online sweet pea. Honestly the whole story line was pretty immature, the online dating, the not wanting him to know who you are, even though he already knows. I would not have thought this was really a Christian book as there is not a lot of Christ like things in the book, actually the opposite, from drinking to an affair with a married man. I didn’t really get a good physical description of the characters, couldn’t really picture them in my mind. In the back of the book was an excerpt from Sweetwater Gap, another of Denise Hunters books that sounded good and I would like to read it and see if it was better than Seaside Letters.

Morgan loves the Mr. Potato Head glasses, and gets them out every day. She has a bit of a temper and when they won't stay on she throws herself to the ground and cries.

Green or Black?

Love of purses

I am pretty sure that girls are just born with a love of purses. Morgan found this purse in the dress up box and she immediately put in on her arm and carried everywhere! She is a true girl~

See you can cook and read while carrying a purse!

we won!

I am always on other blogs signing up for the giveaways and recently have won 3 different prizes. I won a hairband for Morgan and the other day won 2 different books for Micah. The one book is a personalized book and the character is made to look like your son or daughter. The other books are about the baseball world series and it came with a cute T-shirt that says "My daddy reads to me"

Lonestar Secrets - book review

Lonestar Secrets written by Colleen Coble. Five years after Shannon Astor left her home town she finds herself back in town this time as a single mother and full of distrust for the people she grew up with. Shannon has put herself through school all while raising her little girl, Kylie. Shannon’s life is filled with many secrets, can Jack MacGowan the man who is raising his own little girl, Faith break through Shannon’s heart and find love? This story has many twists and turns, from lies and deception, to truth and love. It all goes to show you the truth is better told upfront, and it never pays to lie, no matter how much you think you are helping someone. The story takes place in West Texas and has many different characters. There is Mary Jane- the roommate of Shannon who is in big trouble. The mystery man who is after Shannon and has Mary Jane captive. Jack MacGowan, the man who once humiliated Shannon and now has a daughter who is identical to Shannon own little girl. And then there is Shannon, a woman of distrust who has made it through life on her own, can she put the past behind her and let Jack into her heart? The book has many twists and turns has a great story, and has a surprise ending. I would love to have read her first book, and can’t wait to read more of her books.

Book Review- A Man of His Word

I have recently signed up with Thomas Nelson publishers to do book reviews. They will send you a book of your choice for free and all you have to do is post a review about it. The following is for the book A Man of His Word by Kathleen Fuller.

A Man of His Word, written by Kathleen Fuller. This is the love story of Moriah Byler and Levi Miller. The book begins with Moriah preparing for the best day of her life, her wedding. She is in love with her childhood friend, Levi, while Levi’s twin brother Gabriel is in love with Moriah. The story quickly unfolds with a tale of lies and deception by Levi. Throughout the book there is yet a second story going on. The love story of another Amish couple, Tobias and Rachel. The book has it’s strong points, and it’s weak points. I liked how the author told about the community and made you really feel like you were in Middlefield, Ohio. The author used a lot of Amish words throughout the book, which I didn’t really care for, it broke the flow of reading as I had to look back and see what the words meant. The story itself was pretty predictable. Woman loves man, another man loves her, and there was lots of drama, with death and a birth. I would have liked there to be a book about Tobias and Rachel on their own, as there story line was pretty good. Overall I would recommend the book, and can’t wait to read another book by Kathleen Fuller.

I found something that I think you will like. The company's name is YouData ( They are trying to convince consumers like us that we should be the ones controlling our own data and selling our own attention, not third parties like broadcasters, newspapers, and spammers. By creating a MeFile at, I now control what ads I see and when I see them. Best part - I am selling my attention directly to interested advertisers, for real money. That's right, I get paid for giving them my attention. I can use the funds to buy music and video online, donate to charities, give to my favorite blogs and websites, or keep the change myself and do whatever I want with it.
It's real. They pay. You should check it out.
Click this link to sign up. My MeFile ID, ronbro4, in the "Referral Code" will tell them I sent you.

4th of July

We went to Austin for the 4th of July this year. Who knew it would be the hottest 4th of July on record there! It was 104* with an even higher heat index. We went to Ikea, ate at some favorite restaurants that we haven't had in a long time. Chipotle, Five Guys, and the Saltlick. We always stay at the Embassy Suites, and this one had 2 swans in the center as well as giant goldfish. We told Micah he was not allowed to feed them or throw anything at them. As soon as this picture was taken he picked up a rock and threw it in anyway. Needless to say he got in a lot of trouble. For the Fireworks we went to Lady Bird Park and listened to the Austin Symphony Orchestra and watched some very pretty fireworks. I forgot my camera so no pictures! Micah didn't like the fireworks and hid behind his hands the entire time, Morgan was sleeping and would look every once in awhile, but didn't really care.

Kids Pictures

I had these taken awhile ago and am now just finally getting them hung up. I have a ton of them in wallet size and different poses if anyone wants them.

boo-boo's and M&M's

Morgan is learning to walk, and is getting around quite well. She fell the other day and hit the coffee table. I put Arnica cream on it, and the bruising went away pretty quickly. The pictures are from when it had just happened, and the other 2 pictures are of her eating the M&M's she discovered left behind by Micah, you can hardly see the bruise.

You can really see the bump in this picture, the next day it was pretty much gone, thanks to the cream!
