The Help

Oh my..
I literally JUST finished this novel. Just as in 5 minutes ago. And I HAD to come here to write this post. What a AMAZING book. It's not the kind of book that you read and don't think about it again. While I was reading this book I thought about it in the shower, while cooking & cleaning etc.. I am seriously tearing up while writing this.
Some of the characters really struck a nerve.
The book is based in Mississippi in the 60's. (Did you know that white people still had black women to be their "maids" then? Obviously there was segregation then, but I didn't know that they practically had them still as slaves in the 60's.) Anyways, that's what this book is about.
Back to the characters. I've never read a book where the author could paint a picture so clearly of each character. The way that some of the characters treated their black maids, the way they talked about them and worst of all, how rich white ladies (at least one of the characters) couldn't learn to love their OWN children. The maid showed more love to the children than the mother. THAT- really struck me dumb.
Obviously, I wasn't alive then to know how it was really like.
Obviously, these characters are fiction.
But really, I've never felt so strongly about any book I have ever read.
Definately, definately, DEFINATELY a reccomended book for you.

"Back to School, Back to School.."

I am SO happy to be back at school. I feel like I have put off going back for too long. It's been a little over 2 years since I was at BYU-I. TOO long. I'm only taking 12 credits & as of now I wish I was taking more. But I'm sure as the semester takes off I will be just fine with what I have. I'm taking 2 online. And I actually wish I had time to take more up on campus. It's nice to be UP at school instead to stuck behind a computer. Oh well, next semester!
I am taking..
Math 950 -At Campus.
Yes, It's so embarassing to say Math 950! (I hate math.)
History 1700 -At campus
Nutrition 1020 -Online
& Chemistry 1010 -Online (Yikes!)

The Help

Nope, I haven't even finished it. In fact i'm not even a 1/4th the way through.
But- I had to take a break from the book to tell you how amazing it is! What a powerful book!
I haven't even finished it and it's already up there on my top bookshelf with all my favorite books. And the best part is.. it's going to be a movie. I love reading books before I watch them as a movie. Although, the books are always so much better. SO, if you're looking for something to read go buy "The Help". (Don't hold it from the library. At the Davis county library i was #400 something with a hold on this book. CRAZY I KNOW.)

A Little Slice of Life..

1st.. I had to show you what I got to look forward to on our anniversary camping trip (without the babe)!
Caution: This guy is HOT!
Oh and I was told that I was to NOT post these on Facebook, so I guess Blogger is okay? : )

It rained on us. So Scott protected us by putting up a tarp. And then we ran out of wood! So Scott just took his ax out and chopped us some!

2nd topic to show you is my cute little Summy.

Tell me if you can find her!

She loves her stuffed animals. She was more than happy to jump right in with them. Sometimes if she's on the couch trying to reach her "woof woof" (doggy.. just in case you didn't get that) that's on the floor she will fall off the couch in hopes of reaching him. : )

Next, I finished "Mommywood". I liked it alright. It will never make my list of favorites. She had a lot of funny stories to tell that are all too "Hollywood" for me. But I liked it. If you like her, read it! If you don't care at all, don't!

Last but not least..
Look at all my little flower hair clips. Some are Sums some are mine. They are SO easy to make! Once you start you can't stop!

Back to Reality Sydney!

I am mixing up reality with my freakin books. So the other day Scott & I went to return a movie to Redbox at McDonalds. As we were pulling up I was thinking "Man, I was just here.. what the heck?"
Was I just there? No.
The character in the "Sookie Stackhouse" books had just taken her nephew there to play in the McDonalds play place.

And THEN, the yesterday Scott & I were watching TV and I almost turned to him and asked:
"Did you hear about the new law that the government is going to make werewolves register as citizens?"

I think I am going crazy.

Anyways, I finished the last book in the "Sookie Stackhouse" novels. And it was definately my least favorite of them all. Bummer. It was very boring, I was SO glad to get it over with. : (

Next on the list? Good question. I have too many on my list to decide from. I'm thinking "Mommywood" by Tori Spelling. I just love her. Don't you?

Oh! And I made these flowers for Summers hair today..
