A Reading Life...hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict, and also inspired by Lisa at Lit and Life--Life: It Goes a meme where we get to talk about other stuff we're doing in our lives along with reading!

Listening To: The radio? Not much. I just need to finish some books and a few podcasts and I'll be on to listening to another book!

Soups and pumpkin bread and muffins! I made a fabulous Tex-Mex chicken and rice soup this weekend. I have plans to make some ghost cookies and try out a new chicken orzo soup.

We will also be carving and decorating some pumpkins this week and weekend!

Grateful For:

That my devoted hubby is home and that we had a fabulous time in Boise last weekend!

Looking forward to:

Warm and comfy foods and treats and an epic Halloween party this weekend!

Pictures: We had a fabulous time in Boise. Beautiful there. I had no idea there were so many fun things to do!

Took a walk to the Anne Frank Memorial and tribute to human rights. Beautiful.

Beautiful Autumn in Boise!


  1. Pumpkin bread, yes please! :D That sounds so yummy!

    I've never read Stepford Wives but I'd really like to.

    Have a great week!

  2. Some soup sounds good right about now :)

    1. Soups are all I want to eat in the Fall and Winter!

  3. I can't wait to see pics from your Halloween party! Jason and I are going to one and we are lame. I need some inspiration for what to wear!

    1. I have some pics of Gabe and Archie but none of me. Always behind the camera, I guess. My costumes aren't that clever, so I know you'll come up with some great stuff! Good luck.

  4. Welcome back! I'm glad you had a great time in Boise. Great pics!

    You finished The Historian. =O/ That face is because I haven't and even though it's a reread for me, I'm determined to finish it. I love it...I want to experience it again. I've still got two scary reads for review I have to squeeze in this month. Not sure if I'll be able to do it.

    Ooooh, a Halloween party! Will you share pics of your costumes next week? I hope so. Wish I had one to go to. The last one I went to was 12 years ago. I was only a few weeks away from having my older son and I dressed up as Medusa. It was an awesome costume!


Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
