Mornings

Mornings are usually my busy time. I try to get everything done after my kids have breakfast and before lunch.

Our mornings are usually ruled by routine. We wake up anytime between 8 and 9. Some mornings my kids climb up to my bed and we snuggle and watch something in bed before we head to kitchen and I make breakfast.

Since PrettyPrettyPrincess is 6 going on 16 she likes to make breakfast and I try to have easy stuff around that she can make/put together.

After breakfast she usually helps to clean up and my sweet munchkins shower and get dressed while I finish the dishes.

If there is any schoolwork or anything done it usually happens after that.

If the weather is nice we stay outside a lot.

I usually sit down after I’m done picking up (our house is usually pretty clean so it doesn’t take long) and have something quick and easy while I go over my schedules, check emails, social media and plan out what else is going on.

Lunch is usually the time they sit in the dining room and either play or color or do school work.

After lunch we usually either start getting ready for dinner plans or they watch a movie while I get some work done.

Depending on the day we either eat dinner at home or we head out after hubby gets home and stay gone till bed times.

Both kids are usually in bed by 8:30 and asleep latest by 9. This is our quiet time so we talk about our days, catch up on tv shows or watch a movie.

The Alphabet House by Jussi Adler-Olsen

So excited to read this book tonight!

In the tradition of Alan Furst, the number one international best-selling author delivers his first stand-alone novel, a psychological thriller set in World War II Nazi Germany and 1970s England.

British pilots James Teasdale and Bryan Young have been chosen to conduct a special photo-reconnaissance mission near Dresden, Germany. Intelligence believes the Nazis are building new factories that could turn the tide of the war. When their plane is shot down, James and Bryan know they will be executed if captured. With an enemy patrol in pursuit, they manage to jump aboard a train reserved for senior SS soldiers wounded on the eastern front.

In a moment of desperation, they throw two patients off the train and take their places, hoping they can escape later. But their act is too convincing and they end up in the Alphabet House, a mental hospital located far behind enemy lines, where German doctors subject their patients to daily rounds of shock treatments and experimental drugs. The pilots’ only hope of survival is to fake insanity until the war ends, but their friendship and courage are put to the ultimate test when James and Bryan realize they aren’t the only ones in the Alphabet House feigning madness.

Millions of fans around the world – and in this country – know Adler-Olsen for his award-winning Department Q series. His first stand-alone, The Alphabet House, is the perfect introduction for those who have yet to discover his riveting work.

 

Oscars red carpet

The Oscar’s is the fashion’s biggest night in Hollywood! Some of the most iconic dresses have come from The Oscar’s red carpet. This year was more shy in color and there was only a few ladies brave enough for red. Rosamund Pike in Givenchy and Dakota Johnson in Saint Laurent were some of them. Whites, blush and nudes were the 50 shades that were shining on the red carpet.

As always there was the always classic black and navy…
