Books Read in May 2019

After only reading 1 book in April, I made up for it in May and read 8 books.
 Sailing Lessons –Hannah McKinnon

I love Hannah McKinnon and this was her latest novel. I really enjoyed this book and I rated it 4 stars. I would definitely recommend this book although it is very sad too.
When Dimple Met Rishi - Sandhya Menon

This was the second book by Sandhya Menon (I actually just picked up her latest release from the library) I've read and I really liked it. It was a fun, easy to read, YA book. I rated it 4 stars.
Surviving and Thriving with an Invisible Chronic Illness: How to Stay Sane and Live One Step Ahead of Your Symptoms –Ilana Jacqueline

I didn't read this book cover to cover but I skimmed it and learned some new things. I rated this book 3 stars.
Confessions of a Domestic Failure –Bunmi Laditan

I enjoyed this book so much and I really hope this author comes out with more books because I found her to be really great writer. I thought this book was really cute and funny. I rated…

1.Mother’s Day
This Sunday is Mother's Day. My mom is my best friend in the entire world and I'm so blessed to have her as my mom and my best friend. If I'm half the woman my mom is, I will be so lucky. She is my rock, my constant support system, my partner in crime. Mom, thank you for all that you are and all that you do. I love you so very much.

2.New Lotion
I recently purchased the Bombshell Paradise lotion from Victoria's Secret and I'm obsessed with the scent. It's definitely my favorite lotion and I hope they keep this scent around for a long time.
3. Status: Bookworm
I have always been a bookworm since I was a young child. In late elementary school, I would bring an empty backpack and walk up to library (which was 2 blocks from my house) and I would spend hours at the library. When I had checked out with my books, I put a quarter in the pay phone to call my mom to come pick me up because I couldn’t walk home because my backpack was filled wi…

What We’re Eating This Week… Monday: Leftovers from Easter (ham, twice baked potatoes, veggies) Tuesday: Pasta with clams and a white wine sauce Wednesday: Cobb salad with blackened shrimp (ate out) I'm not sure about the rest of the week.
What I’m Reminiscing About… My trips to NY to see my family. I grew up in NY and moved down South when I was 16 ½. I have been taking trips back to visit family ever since moving down here. While I was in H.S. and college and before I started working, I was able to visit a lot more often. Nowadays, I don’t get to go back to visit nearly as often but I always cherish the times I do get to go back and visit and I always look back fondly on all of the memories made during my trips back.
What I’m Loving… Visits from family, quality time with my nephews & niece, time with friends.
What I’ve Been Up To… In the beginning of the month, I had lunch with my friend L and then later that night had dinner with my friend A and we went to a few stores. On the 13th, …

1. World Autism Day
Tuesday, April 2nd was World Autism Day and April is Autism Awareness Month. My  wish is for more people to become aware of Asperger's and Autism and to not judge what they do not understand. I have Asperger's. My diagnosis doesn't define me. It inspires me to live life to the fullest and be the best person I can be every day. The challenges I've faced growing up have shaped me to be a strong and confident adult. As a child, growing up being bullied, was horrible. I hated going to school. I was sad that no one wanted to be my friend. As an adult, I know that if not for going through struggles, I would have never found my true strength.

2.Baking/Cooking This week, I made a strawberry cake (nothing fancy, just a box mix) and next week, I will be making a recipe I found from the cook at my job which is a fiesta tuna dish. I will also be making a Cobb salad. I love the Cobb salad that T.G.I. Fridays sells and I’m going to try and re-create it at home.
3.St. Patrick’s Day This Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day. I’m 50% Irish and 50% Italian so we have always celebrated the holiday in my family. My mom makes the traditional Irish meal of corn beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, and Irish Soda bread. My mom’s Irish Soda bread is the best.
