Stay home date night #1

As a lot of you know who have kids, it's hard to find time to have a date night without them. Yes, you can get a baby sitter, but they can be expensive and hard to find. I've been looking all over the internet for things my husband and I could do together that were cheap and easy, all while juggling the kids and their bed times. What I found was a list of dates that we could do at home after we put the kids to sleep ( I will add the link at the end.) Last night was our first at home date night, our first date period, in a while.

Game Night!!! 
We got into our Pj's, pulled the board games off the shelf and got cozy at the coffee table. As you can see, we started off with scrable, but neither of us are much for spelling. Go figure. Especially when my husband tried to spell "queen" in his own way.
We quickly switched over to "Sorry" and had a blast. Of course there was alcohol and a desert involved. Angry orchard, my favorite gluten free beverage and thanks to Carl's Jr. we had cheese cake.
Of course, I won the game :D
I encourage all of you to have a date night at least once a week. It will be good for you to relax, and you don't have to go out to do it.
Feel free to send me your ideas for date night, whether it be at home or out and about. SHendersonPhoto.at.gmail.com

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
