Pictures and the Flu

I guess I came back to blogging a tiny bit too soon what with my mom coming down and me catching a little flu bug too. NOT fun! Well, here's those pictures I promised:

This is down the road from my house

Only a little farther down, near where we go grocery shopping (Ocean Springs)

At a rest stop between Lousiana and Mississippi. I believe they do NASA tours there but I was the only one interested in that so we didn't go :(

This is a live band that plays all the time at The Gazebo resturaunt in New Orleans. They have SUCH good food!

The obligatory Bourban Street sign picture.
I'll post pics from The Hard Rock Casino as soon as I can!

All I've Done Was Go!

Hey, I didn't abandon the blog, I promise! My mom is just down and today is the first time since Wednesday I've been able to do more than check my email. We've been everywhere! Down in Biloxi to the Imperial Palace and The Hard Rock Casino/ Cafe (OMG those little key lime pie bites which are served in shooter glasses are SO good), all over shopping, and even over to New Orleans for a few hours. Tonight we're going to The Shed which is right up the road from my house because Little Freddie King is playing tonight. I'll post a bunch of pictures tomorrow k?

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Musing Monday-In Books

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about the war books

Do you frequent second hand book stores? Have you ever bought a book home only to find anything interesting within their pages?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.

I LOVE secondhand stores! You never know what kind of treasure your going to find and usually cheap too! At least half of my books had previous owners actually... including an ARC of Holly Black's Tithe! I picked it up before it came out and before I had a clue who she was because I loved the cover.

Sadly, I've never found anything too interesting inside my books except a few bookmarks (and once a photo of a guy in a tux and baseball hat) but I still hold out hope of finding something amazing one day.
Hey, did you know that there is a website devoted entirely to Things Found in Books?

Did ya Miss Me?

Wow! My last post here was in March I believe it's time to update don't you? I believe I owe a bit of an explanation for that and the reason my hiatus lasted so long is that blogging got to be more of a chore than something I did for fun. Catch-22 is that I did miss blogging but in the meantime other things began to take up my time but I'm going to try to juggle everything once more!

So nothing is really new with me and I'm still not really reading anything (I've been stuck on the same book since I last updated actually and I'm trying to work on a biography I started 2 years ago too) but I'm going to be posting some movie reviews until I do get back in the swing. In other news, my mother is going to be coming down for a visit for the first time and I'm running around trying to keep the house clean which is harder than you would think lol!

So my Google Reader is incredibly scary looking and because of that I'm going to delete everything older than a week so if anyone has anything that they wrote about older then I would love for you to post a link in the comments! Reviews you did an especially good job on, a post that generated a ton of interesting conversation, etc. PLEASe let me know!!!
