Reese Update

 
(Via)





So I watched The Man in the Moon over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The movie is a sweet and sad story about a girls coming of age. It is set in the '50's (maybe) and is very engaging story. Reese Witherspoon plays 14 year old Danny who falls in love with the son of an old friend of her parents. 

This was one of her first movies and she does a great job. Her southern heritage shines through in her true accent (think Sweet Home Alabama) and she seems sweet and innocent. I don't want to ruin the movie even if it is about 20 years old, so check it out! It is rated PG-13 but I think it more appropriate for a slightly older audience. 

It also stars Sam Waterston (think Law and Order) and Jason London.

  1. I've seen quite a few of Reese's movies - love Sweet Home Alabama - but have not seen this one. Wasn't she in one recently that was set in a circus? I thought it looked good but never got around to seeing it.

    My husband and son are gone so I've been trying to squeeze in some dvd's that I know they won't watch :). YaYa Sisterhood, etc. Love a good chick flick!!

  2. The circus on is "Water for Elephants." I haven't seen it yet either, I want to read the book first!

    I always watch chick flicks and animated movies when my husband isn't home!

  3. I think I saw this on TV once... does something happen with a tractor? If it's the movie I'm thinking of, it is good!

  4. This is one of my favorite movies! My mom got me hooked on it when I was in high school. So good. I'm glad you enjoyed it, friend! :D

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Falling For You by Becky Wade

I don't think I have read a Becky Wade book that I haven't liked. Her newest release, Falling For You, followed that trend.

In this sequel to True To You which I reviewed last year, Willow Bradford must face her past when her ex-boyfriend shows back up in her life. Corbin Stewart is cajoled to recruit Willow as an investigator into a family mystery by his almost-niece, Charlotte. The three of them team up to figure out what happened in Charlotte's family.

Willow and Corbin are a study in opposites. Willow is a rule-following people-pleaser. Corbin is used to charming his way into getting what he wants with no care for the rules. The sparks between the two are hot, but their past still haunts them.

I loved this book. The characters were charming and endearing. I love that this series continues from book to book, though each can be read alone. It was fun to read as the characters grew and changed in their relationships to God, others and themselves. 

I definitely recommend this …

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…
