Happy Monday Readers!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I usually like to do a Weekend Recap post on Mondays but I have absolutely nothing to recap you on haha because I did a whole lot of nothing this weekend but loved every second of it! Just hung out with family, read, watched movies and TV...speaking of TV did anyone watch Once Upon A Time, Desperate Housewives, AND Panam last night? Jeez, I was glued to my TV for 3 hours (woops!). I thought each episode was really good and I can't wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for us!
Anyway back to my thrilling weekend (aka not...) I did get to finish one of my books that was on my winter break reading list. I finished Heart of the Matter by Emily Griffin last night and absolutely loved it! It definitely had a bit of a slow start and it took me till about 40% (I have a kindle haha so it tells me the percentage that I've read at the bottom of the screen) to really get into it but when I did- I could not put it down. I don't want to give anything away but the story absolutely broke my heart and I'm not ashamed to say that a few tears were definitely shed during multiple points of the book. The story was sad but inspiring at the very same time. I'm a big fan of Emily Griffin and this book did not disappoint!
Now on to needing all of my blog friends advice! I've been looking for a new jacket recently- something to wear in between my peacoat and my huge North face jacket (seriously it's like a sleeping bag) and stumbled across the LL Bean sale online! I think I've seen a few bloggers with the Quilted Riding Jacket and really would appreciate your advice! Is it worth the $80? Will it actually keep me warm or is it comparable to a peacoat in terms of warmth? And better yet- how does the sizing go? I'm usually a small or medium in tops so would it better to get a medium?
Sorry for all the questions but I want to make sure the jacket is worth it before investing! Thanks in advance for any advice you have!
Remember you have until tonight at 9pm to enter my first giveaway here! I will announce the winner at some point tomorrow!
