52 Books in a Year! Help Needed!

Back in September, I made a very simple little choice to start reading books for pleasure again. You can read a bit about that decision HERE. I definately eased into it, and read only two books in that first month. I've been keeping a running list of the the books I've read at the bottom of my blog. I noticed about a month ago, that I was quite possibly going to be able to read 52 books (average of one book a week) before the year is up, and I made it a little goal for myself. As it turns out....I'll be there easily a month before the deadline of 9/14/10. I'm THRILLED. Here is a list of the books I have read this year so far. As you can see......I'm on book 51 right now. I thought it would be fun to ask for reccommendations on my fifty second book! So....let's hear it....What is your favorite book right now? What should I read NEXT?

Wordless Wednesday~ The portrait session that had me tied up in knots








PS. I'll post more shots soon, and tell you all a little bit about this very important portrait session.

Be sure to link up if you are a Wordless Wednesday participant.

Blueberry Pickin'!


We met some friends up at the blueberry farm the other day. It was our first time officially pickin' blueberries at a farm. Grandma and grandpa have a few bushes, but nothing like this place. WOW! It was so beautiful.

Our friends are fabulous company......and not too shabby to look at, so you know I took a few pictures. Isn't this little honey adorable?


Her mama is pretty special, too!


Look at these pretty!


Sugar was in blueberry heaven! She found tons of "dandies!"


I couldn't stop snapping shots of this cutie....her shirt and hat were just to die for against all the green.


Both little girls were fabulous pickers. They enjoyed finding the biggest and the best blueberries.









However, it didn't take too long to get a little HOT.


but ooooo....oooo.... the eatin' was GOOD!



and the bounty was plentiful! ♥

Team-Up Thursday~ Sassy

Berta threw a real whooper of an idea at me this week, and I have to say....I was a bit stumped. SASSY....hmmmm.....what does the word SASSY really, truely mean? It might come as a surprise to you that I didn't actually look up the definition. I know...I know....I'm failing at "being Corey" these days. I just sat back...and waited for something to strike me.

Monday, I was having a little chat with The Hubby, in our livingroom, while Sugar Bear was outside driving around our property in her Jeep. My husband glaced out the window, and started to snicker. I took a look as well, and said outloud, "Oh my she thinks she is SASSY!" Then my mouth dropped open, and I ran for my camera. The SASSY moment had arrived.

Even better, when I showed up outside to take the picture, Sugar Bear said, "nope....shows over!" tee hee......good thing I snapped this shot before she noticed me. What a SASSY girl!

Now Berta's shot......WHOA that not the most beautiful photo in the whole wide world? Seriously.....I can't stop lookin' at it. What a stunning shot of a sassy woman. LOVE IT! Everything about it is fabulous. Well done Berta!
