2015 Goals Update

Hello lovelies!
Another year is coming to a close, and to be honest I don't know where the year went. Time just keeps speeding up and I wish it would slow down a little.

This year I made a lot of goals, and I achieved most of them, and some I didn't. Because I made so many goals this year I'm not gonna go over all of them, but here's some of them.
Here's my goals for 2015!!!!

Things I Want to Do:
-Open a savings account.
-Buy a new laptop
-Find a pair of glasses and start wearing them.
-Read 60 books.
-Get a job.
-Get my license.
-Look into buying a car.
-Buy a new camera and learn how to use it.
-Get my hair back to being completely blonde.
-Clean out my closet
-Put more of an effort into finding a church.

My #1 goal for the year is:

Blogmas Day 9: Book Review: Lynette Eason - Rodeo Rescuer

Today I will be reviewing 'Rodeo Rescuer' by Lynette Eason, copy received from Netgalley via Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.

'Rodeo Rescuer' is a romantic suspense novel, it is 288 pages long and it took me about three hours to read. It is available at Amazon (Kindle) for $4.99, and Barnes and Noble (NOOKBook) for $4.99.

About The Book

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Length: 288 Pages

Publisher: Love Inspired, Harlequin

Release Date: September 1, 2015

Book Synopsis
She can't escape!

No matter where she runs, rodeo clown Tonya Waters's stalker always finds her. Now he's managed to track her down on the rodeo circuit. If bull rider Seth Starke hadn't saved her, she'd be dead. But when the handsome cowboy is injured in the ring and Tonya rescues him, Seth seems more determined than ever to keep her safe. But can she risk staying at his Tennessee ranch and bringing danger to his family? As her stalker gets more violent, Tonya and Seth vow to outsmart him before he makes good on his ultimate threat: if he can't have her, no one will.

What did I think?

Like: The ending!
Dislike: Nothing!!!

Would I recommend it?
Yes, I would 100% recommend this book. I loved the first book in this series and I loved this one too.

I think the characters in this book were very realistic and their romance was definitely believeable. I really like that the female lead was a rodeo clown, I've never read a book with a rodeo clown in it before. The ending definitely surprised me, I loved all the action and suspense. The twist at the end was great!

Overall, I loved the book, it was a quick read and I'm really happy that the author chose to add to this series!

Thank you Harlequin via Netgalley for providing me with this book in exchange for an honest review!
Will you be buying this book? Let me know below!

Blogmas Day 8: December Update

Hello Lovelies!
I hope you're all doing well, today I have an update for you. I've been mostly absent for the past three months and I'm trying to get back into the flow of things.

I wish I could say I've been off on an amazing adventure, but that's not the truth. The truth is I was burnout on everything. I was working so hard trying to juggle work, school, and blogging five days a week that I wasn't taking care of me.

To be honest I'm still working on taking care of me, but we're getting there. A few different things have been going on that I haven't been able to share with y'all, so why not get it out in the open now?

Back in June my back started hurting really bad, so I went to the doctor, two x-rays, an MRI, a trip to Nashville, and a neurosurgeon eventually gave me the diagnosis of early Degenerative Disc Disease in August. Right now we're treating with physical therapy, and I go back to the doctor in Nashville next month, if it's not better (which it's not) then I'll probably have to get a steroid shot in my back.

 On top of all that I had blood work done in August and I was anemic, again, my doctor is retesting me next week and if it I'm still anemic she mentioned the possibility of me needing an iron infusion, which I'm really not looking forward to.

To top it all off last night I dropped my laptop (15.6") on my foot and I'm pretty sure I broke my little toe. It really hurts and I'm really not looking forward to putting on shoes!

Reading: Trail of Secrets by Eileen Goudge
I've read this book many times before and I'm reading it again, it's an old favorite of mine.

Watching: Dr.Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas
This is my all time favorite Christmas movie, I watch it year round and I can't get enough!

Listening to: Christmas Music

Dreaming Of: A Wonderful Christmas
Sadly I have to work Christmas Eve, which means I'll miss getting to see my family, open presents, and eating a warm meal. But hopefully Christmas Day will be good even though it won't be the same.

Planning: For the future.
I'm working on a few different things right now with school, work, and blogging. I'm trying to get everything done and I honestly don't have enough time to do any of it.

Trying: A new recipe!
A few days ago at work a woman came through my line and she told me about a two ingredient fudge recipe.

Goal Setting: At least 10 blog posts for December.
I want to have at least 10 blog posts for the month of December, I would love to do more, but 10 would make me happy.

I know I'm a week late, but I'm going to do my best to finish Blogmas and do as many posts as I possibly can this month!

That's all for today and I will definitely have a post up tomorrow!
