Friday

Its Friday and apparently everybody around here is gone this weekend. Many are probably at Bonnaroo, haha. By around here, I mean the whole city of Nashville, not my house. Everybody is still at my house. 

The fireflies are out and it makes taking Mary out at night so much more pleasant. It is like being a part of a fairyland each evening. I heard that the light exhibit at Cheekwood is supposed to be that way as well so I definitely want to check it out. 

I don't have any big plans for this weekend, except celebrating Father's Day with Pop Rocks folks this weekend. It will be fun as it always is when we are with them. 

What are you up to?

  1. Fireflies! I don't think we have many of those around here. No big plans for the weekend since we have VBS coming up, and that's going to wear me out (ladies have a Bible study at the same time that the kids have their VBS). Have a lovely weekend!

    1. That does sound quite a bit exhausting, the good kind though!

  2. Fireflies *dreamy sighs* This weekend? Going to our babysitter/homeschool helper's grad party tomorrow- woot! And, I'll be giving the man the day on Sunday. Will also take little bags of M&Ms around to the neighborhood dad's a tradition I started last year after taking roses to the neighborhood moms on mother's day.

    1. That should be: giving the man the day *off* ;)

    2. That is a really neat tradition. I like it!

  3. My husband and son just passed through Nashville on their way to Ohio. They didn't get a chance to get off the freeway and enjoy the sights, but I've been a couple of times and loved it. So much to see and do...and fireflies make it magical!!

    Enjoy what is left of the weekend!!

  4. Evidently we are neighbors, so to speak. although I'm not technically IN Nashville. We have been enjoying fireflies as well. And, um, we skipped town to get away from Bonaroo traffic. (ok, well, maybe visiting grandma had something to do with it too. ha.)

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…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…
