My Miscellany Monday

* I don't know about you guys, but today is dragging. by. so. slowly. Blah! I always feel this way after having a pretty great weekend though. My husband (Keith, KC, sweet boy, etc.) travels every week for his job, (He meets me Mondays for lunch and then I don't see him again until Friday evening! Wahhh!) so the weekends tend to always be wonderful, but are always short lived. :/ This weekend we went with our friends Chad and Melissa, and the bro/sis-in-law Stephen and Ivey to the zoo.

 Elephant!

Beautiful Zebra

Pretty pink flamingos! 

Gotta love penguins! :)

* Over the weekend I finished reading Water for Elephants and I have to say that I was extremely impressed. This was such a fantastic novel! It was a slow start for me, but once I reached the middle I was seriously hooked. I could not put that book down! Going to the zoo while reading this book sort of changed my perspective about the animals there. I have no reason to think that these animals are getting abused, but  my heart has definitely softened for animals after reading WFE. I am planning on going solo to the movies tomorrow night to see the movie, but I just hope that it does the book justice! :)

* I'd like to send a very big congratulations to Chloe and her hubby Josiah over at Tryin' to Throw My Arms Around the World!!! They welcomed a baby boy into the world on Friday and I am just so happy for them! :) 

That's all for today. I hope this Monday is treating you well!

Was WFE sad? I am very intrigued by the movie trailers, but unsure about actually going...I always get so emotional from movies! lol

Cute pics from the zoo!!

You look great! I'm loving the shorter, lighter hair!

I just started Water for Elephants and can't get through it! I'm on page 70 and I'm struggling to keep going! Maybe I'll keep trying.

Hope you're having a great week!
