Monday Madness Link Up 10.5.15

Oct 5, 2015
Another Monday... think of it as a fresh start.


So, I had to report for jury selection for the first time ever. There were 7 cases they were choosing a jury for, but everyone ended up taking a plea. Basically we sat in the hallway during the pleas and then got called into the courtroom and told we could leave. I feel like I did my civic duty.

On Saturday Nick and I tailgated at and went to the MSU homecoming game. I always try to dress cute for these games, but it's pretty much impossible because East Lansing, Michigan has the sh*ttiest weather of anywhere I have ever been. It ended up being 48 degree and rainy. I didn't get to take too many pictures because my fingers would get too cold. I ended up in my father-in-law's rain slicker, my mother-in-law's winter hat and Nick's winter gloves. I don't even enjoy football. Boo. Thank goodness that we left at half time.





When we got home I turned on the space heater and wrapped myself in some blankets and we watched the newest version of the Left Behind movie. It was an interesting role for Nicholas Cage.


I started reading this book series right after I graduated college and got through a lot of them. It was really good. However, I didn't finish them and they're so involved that I'm thinking about starting again from the beginning. Has anyone else read this book series?


Speaking of books...



I finally got my hands on The Royal We!!!!! As a Royal Watcher I've been dying to read this book and it took me way to long to do it! Review coming soon...

  2. The Royal We sounds awesome - I definitely need to check it out. Sorry about the bad weather for tailgating. I always tried to do the same (dress cute) when we lived in CT for football, but it was below 40 like half of the time, so that was impossible haha. Have a great week!

  5. I've heard so much about The Royal We, might have to pick it up. The last time I got called up for jury duty I called their hotline number every day and didn't have to report once. It was wonderful! You definitely did your civic duty.

  6. I so want to read The Royal We, I hear all good things about it. I can't decide if I want to get it for my iPad or get it hardcover. Sorry to hear about the bad weather. Hopefully, it will be better for the next game.

  9. I will have to put the Royal on my reading list. I read the Left Behind series in high school. I don't remember much except being terrified of the rapture. I tried to watch the movie but could not get past the first 30 minutes.

  10. I'm with you on the weather this weekend-it fell so sharply and we were in the low 50s with 40 mph winds. Yuck. :( Thankfully, it's supposed to warm up this week! I have The Royal We on my Kindle but haven't read it yet-can't wait to hear what you think of it!
