We Will Never Forget...

We will never forget. This is a photo I took of one of the beams at the Franklin Ave Elementary School. In Pearl River, New York every school has a beam. My high school has 2 beams. The next town over has 1 beam in a courtyard in the center of town.

Friday Thoughts: A New Start

Thank you canva

Well it has been a while since I've blogged - a year almost to the day - but I'm so excited to restart my journey here. It's been a long year of ups and downs, new dreams, and hope of great things to come. I thought I would just share a few things here and there while I get back into groove of things! =)

  • Thank you Banana Republic Factory Store & Loft for carrying XL sizes in Tops in your stores. It's so hard as a plus size girl to find good quality clothes that fit and don't tug at every curve, especially work appropriate ones and to be able to try it on in the store is wonderful. =)
  • Hidden Figures DVD is on sale next week at Target for $10 bucks! Definitely buying that movie! Can't wait to see it!
  • I'm loving my new Iphone 7 Plus! It's a pretty big phone, especially with the case, but it's such a step up from last phone - Samsung Galaxy 6. The photos are so much better! But, it doesn't fit in my pocket so I have to be crazy careful with it. 
  •  I'm excited to pick up Paula Hawkins new book - Into The Water this weekend. I loved Girl on the Train! 
  • While the husband is away, the wife will clean. My husband is out the whole weekend and I'm ready to give our studio condo a thorough cleaning. *Fingers Crossed* In the next few months we will hopefully be putting our condo up on the market, so every little bit helps!
  •  I'm officially 30,000 words - approx 75 word document pages into my romance novel. It's taken me a long time to get here and I already have ideas swirling for a follow-up. By the end of the year, even if I have to self-publish it, I will finish this book!!
  • I completed my 2017 NYC Comic Con fan verification! I know it doesn't guarantee a ticket for this year but I'm one step closer. I haven't gone in about 8 years. Even if it's just one day I want to go! I think I'm going to go as Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim. She's one of my favorite characters ever!
  • Have you seen the trailer for the new "The Dark Tower" movie? Wow it looks good!!! I've always been a big fan of Stephen King novel adapted movies! Also I spied a tribute to The Shinning in a quick moment too! =P
I hope you all have a great weekend and I will be back on Sunday!
