Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis [Review]

January 17, 2013
The Grey Wolves Series: Book 1

I’m pretty late to the e-book party, but now that I’m here, I have to say it’s a pretty awesome party. My first foray into the world of digital books was Prince of Wolves, book one of The Grey Wolves series by Quinn Loftis. I was breaking in my brand-spanking-new iPad over the Christmas break, and was searching for some free books to read while on my way to Seattle. Now I know you have to take “free” anything with…

Today I was able to take a little time for myself (which if you’ve kept up with me at all lately you’ll know is a pretty big deal) to head over to Players By The Sea to catch Talking Heads 2.

When Chris and I decided to see Real Steel in theatres this weekend, I don’t think either of us was expecting much.

Shen Yun: A Journey to China

February 4, 2010
ShenYun2

This week has flown by in a flurry of activity, but I really wanted to sit down and write about Shen Yun, the show that Rhiannon, Mom and I saw last Saturday night. The evening started with an amazing dinner at Bistro Aix. Mom had some scallops “aixoise”, Rhiannon devoured their duck breast and I had the roasted chicken or coq au vin if you prefer. ^_^ (Dessert was a decadent apple cobbler a lΓ‘ mode.) Yum! From there, we…
