My 5 faves

I'm going to start this by saying, I am not proof reading this post. I will check spelling and that's it!!

1. Last Weekend - July 23 & 24 2011.
One of the Best Weekends EVER!!
I had my surprise shower! It was amazing, my best girl Darcey did a killer job. It was a 1950's New York, Mad Men theme and everyone had to bring a food dish from the 50's. Awesome. I got so spoiled. Thanks Darcey - love you!!
And, I had my first wedding dress fitting!!! I went to visit my seamstress and it's coming together beautifully!

2. Reading.
Yep, I'm a nerd. I really like reading, but I need to read books that capture me quickly. I am a very creative, imaginative person and there's always something going on in my mind. So, if I can't create the story in my head, then I'm screwed. I typically tend to read "chick lit, you know the stories - girl moves to the big city to get her dream job, has to fight for it, falls in love with the dreamy head honcho, goes through all sorts of crazy things, does embarrassing things and then the story ends with a they lived "Happily Ever After". For example, Confessions of a Shopaholic (see #4). I believe in happily ever after and all that jazz, so how could I not love books like that?
I started reading a book called Barney's Version by Mordecai Richler last September, yes September 2010 - I'm still 34 pages's a hard read! I'm really interested in it, but I just can't get into it. That leads me to #3....

3. The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
A co-worker to me about this book turned into movie. It sounded really interesting to me. 
It's set in the early 1960's in Mississippi and is told from the perspective of three women - 2 maids and 1 college graduate that doesn't understand why the maids get treated the way they do. That's an extremely short/awful review (review is a strong word!), but check it out if you want a longer more detailed plot summary.
But I pretty much haven't put it down since I got it.

4. Shopping.
Hi, my name is Amanda and I'm a shopaholic. 
Just kidding it's not that bad. I'm actually very responsible with my money and don't waste it. I just really like shopping. The end.

5. Cereal.
I LOVE cereal! I go through phases where I tend to...for lack of a better word, obsess over certain foods. For instance, awhile back I ate fake peanut butter and jam sandwiches everyday for almost a month, then I got sick of it and moved on. My Our (my fiance is on board with this too!) new love - cereal. We just can't enough!!
His favorites - Captain Crunch, Froot Loops etc.
My faves - Mini Wheats (but only Blueberry and Cocoa) and Raisin Bran.

Yum! I think I need to go have breakfast!!

Happy Weekend to everybody!
And to my fellow Canadians, have a safe and fun long weekend!!
