Music, Movies, and Many Many Books.

We had an incredible time at the Dove event with Kacy Duke yesterday (not to mention the stretch Hummer ride) – I can’t wait to share all the deets with you all soon! I’m working on getting all the pics, video clips, etc together before I make the big post so stay tuned. It will also have a giveaway or possibly 2 coming with it! Be excited, be very excited. I would jump up and down to prove it but my inner thighs are too sore from yesterday’s workout. Kacy kicked my butt. : ] In a good way, of course.

I’m looking forward to winding down this week and getting some relaxing pool time in this weekend. Since I’m actually in Tampa for the rest of July and most of August before I return to my crazy traveling schedule (which is 10 times crazier in the fall than in the spring), I’m trying to get in as much pool side relaxation as possible! My tan is finally in a good place and I’m working my way through my library books while in a lounge chair, drinking sprite zero, and gabbing with friends.

I haven’t shared what I’m reading on in a hot minute so I thought I’d give you my poolside list for the next couple weekends (unless it rains, then it may just be one weekend).

For book club this month I'm sloooowly working my way through the Passage. It's a good book, it's just not as gripping (for me) as some of the other reading material I have my hands on right now.

I'm currently obsessively devouring Jodi Picoult (my favorite author)'s latest book, 'House Rules' which after being 62nd on the waiting list from the library (I boycott Kindle books that cost more that 9.99) - I actually got in a little over a weeks time. Fabulous. I picked it up, Tuesday? I expect it won't even last until the pool on Saturday at the rate I'm going.

Also on the list right now are:

I know I write more about literature than I do about music or movies. But I do have two new music related obsessions lately so I thought I'd share those with you too. Colbie Caillat's I Never Told You song (and I have the video as well) and Shontelle's Impossible. Those are new to my ipod playlist as of last week and I highly recommend both.

In the movie department, I haven't really seen anything new since Eclipse. I'm not a frequent movie goer. I did DVR the Lake House with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves...anyone seen this? I started it but haven't had a chance to finish it and I just can't decide how I feel about it. If you've seen it let me know your thoughts. Maybe the ending will bring it all together for me.

Ok there's my media related update.

My mom and I saw the "Lake House" in the theater when it came out and we left with headaches b/c we were so's a good idea that doesn't completely work out in the details and will more than likely keep you perplexed instead of riveted....I recommend hitting the erase button or getting out some advil!

I cannot wait for your posts about the Dove event! So excited!

And I am dying to read "House Rules" - everyone is raving about it!
