Where am I?

Oh friends, I know I've been ignoring my blog lately but I've been so busy raising a toddler first and foremost. Man those little ones can wear you out! By the time he goes down for the night, the husband and I are ready to hit the sack ourselves! Jumping on to the lap top and staring at a bright screen just doesn't seem like my way of relaxing these days.

Secondly, I blame the cold weather. I just want to curl up and read a book when I get a few minutes to myself before hitting the sack. Especially since I am currently reading the Sookie Stackhouse series. So fitting to be reading and loving a vampire series during the month of October huh? That Charlaine Harris sure does know her southern vampires.

If you knew me well friends you'd know I love books and movies about southerners. Something about their quirky ways appeals to me. Steel Magnolias is on my top 5 favorite movie list (the one liners alone are worth watching it) and To Kill a Mockingbird is my all time favorite book. I read it in the 7th grade and have loved it ever since. I guess that was my first introduction to those crazy southerners. I heart Atticus Finch!

So please excuse me for not blogging a lot this month, I must get through my latest obsession, Ms. Sookie Stackhouse, and then I'll find time for my other obsessions while not chasing around a very active 15 month old boy. There just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day.
p.s. Don't forget to check out these books for a fun read on a cold fall/winter night!
