10 Recommended Book Series
As you know I love books that are part of a series. Here are 10 Series this Southern Belle Recommends. (Note: there is no order of favorite to them and 10 was a hard number to narrow down to.)
1) Boudreaux By: Kristen Proby
2) Weekday Brides by: Catherine Bybee
3) Dare Valley by: Ava Miles
4) Morning Glory by: Liz Talley
5) Bourbon Street Boys by: Elle Casey
6) Morgan’s Run by: M. Lee Prescott
7) Not Quite by: Catherine Bybee
8) Sassy Belles & In Dixie by: Beth Albright
9) Dare River by: Ava Miles
10) Cameron Saga: Civil War Trilogy by: Heather Graham
In the upcoming weeks I will share a little more about each series and why I like them.
Yesterday was the day Hollywood Dirt starting steaming on Passionflix. I was excited to get home from work yesterday to watch it. I really enjoyed it. It’s a movie based on a book so of course the movie doesn’t hit on everything the book does but I actually thought it did a pretty good job following the book. I know you can only do so much in a short time when a book is over 400 pages. It was well worth the monthly fee for Passionflix. I can’t wait to read some of the other books and see what they can do with them.
The last two Fridays I have actually done something I haven’t done in a long time. Do something for myself and not someone else. Last Friday I was off so I had lunch with dad at a restaurant I chose. Then I went to Michael’s and Five Below and stopped and got myself a cup of coffee from my favorite, Dunkin’ Donuts. Then yesterday we ordered Chinese food for lunch at work, which I never get since I’m the only one that eats it. Then I got my hair done (it’s been over a year since I did that last) and finally I stopped and got myself Chipolte for dinner. It’s about time I did something for me.
Passionflix and My Reading
Passionflix is here! I think it is going to make me step up my reading. I have already Hollywood Dirt to prepare me for when it starts streaming on the twentieth. A few of these books I have heard of and thought about reading but now I will have to read them. Next one for sure is Afterburn\Aftershock. Then maybe Driven of This Man. Stay tuned for updates.
I am speechless about the passing of Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry yesterday. My heart goes out to and I’m praying for his family, friends, and fans.
The Stupidest Thing I Have Ever Seen
I don’t shop at sporting good stores. I don’t have a need to. But tonight as we were running around getting stuff for my dad’s travel tomorrow to Flordia (he needed a sleeping bag) I walked it to one. And what did I find? To me the stupidest thing I have ever saw.
A turnstile at the entrance! It’s a store not a sporting event or a ride at Disney World.
Eyes on Irma
Even though I don’t live in Florida and don’t have travel plans there anytime soon, I am watching Irma pretty close. My dad works for the local utilities company and he is the supervisor heading down with a group to help after the storm moves through. My cousin and his girlfriend live in St. Petersburg. They are downtown and not on the beach but still close. And I have a friend who is at Disney World right now with her daughter, son in law, and two grandkids.
Southern Belle Foodie
Dictionary.com defines Foodie as: a person keenly interested in food, especially in eating or cooking
I would say I am a foodie. I love trying new places and there are restaurants we go to just for the food, no matter how long the drive or wait is. I would even have to say our Disney Vacations are all about the food. I thought I would share some of my foodie favorites from the road and at home.

Movie Find on Hulu
If you grew up in the late 80’s early 90’s like I did you probably remember some of the Mary Kate and Ashley movies. Well I will let you know I found It Takes Two yesterday on Hulu. I watched it right away. I was not a fan of most of their movies but I did think this one was cute. Knowing me though I probably liked it because of Steve Gutenberg and Kristie Alley and not Mary Kate and Ashley.
