Book vs. Movie:: The Choice

As I’ve mentioned before, I am a big fan of reading books before their movies are released. The first big book adaptation on my radar this year was The Choice. The latest film based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, The Choice centers around Travis Parker, a good-natured man living in small-town North Carolina, and Gabby Holland, his

2016 Weekly Bits: V

Enjoyed:: Warm weather!
Gosh, we had some perfect weather at the beginning of the week! I can't believe it was over 60 degrees in February. I took advantage of it and got in a couple of runs at the park!

Dined:: Highway 40 Brews
Michael and I had a date night last Friday night and tried out Highway 40 Brews. I was under the impression that it was a regular restaurant, but it was definitely more of a bar atmosphere. Oh well, the food was still delicious, the

Super Bowl Snacks

The Super Bowl is Sunday and I have been seeing so many delicious snack recommendations floating around social media. We will be attending a party with some of Michael's friends so I am trying to narrow down what appetizer to bring. Here are some of the options I've had my eye on:

1. Bacon Cheddar Crackers

2. Party Pizzas

3. No Bake Cake Pops

4. Brown Sugar Smokies

5. Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes

Personally, I'm not too big of a sports person, so I will be attending the party for the snacks, commercials, and mingling! What are your Super Bowl plans?

P. S. My personal favorite snack is buffalo chicken dip, but I'm sure someone else will be providing that since it is a go-to appetizer around here!

February Lineup

February is shaping up to be a really good month!  Here's a look at what I currently have on the schedule:

Blues Game
  • As I've mentioned before, I'm not a huge hockey (or any sports for that matter) fan but I do love going to the games when the tickets are free! I'm looking forward to a little hockey, a couple beers, and some good company.
Bridal Shower
  • A Saturday afternoon bridal shower must lead to a girls' night out, right?! That's what I'm hoping for, anyways! I am definitely excited to catch up with friends and celebrate the upcoming wedding.
Baby McKinney
  • My second nephew will be here February 17th and I couldn't be more excited! I am taking a couple days off work to head to my hometown and spend some time with the family. My sister is keeping the baby's name a secret until he is born and let me tell you it is driving me nuts! I seriously cannot wait to meet the little guy. My sister is going to have her hands full with all of these boys!
  • Guys, I've been trying to get myself down to Nashville for years, and every trip I have planned has fallen through. Well, not this one! My friend from college is getting married in March and we will be celebrating her bachelorette party in Nashville this month!  I can't wait to finally see everything the city has to offer!
