Good morning!!! I slept well last night and the sun is out here! I’ve got a long morning to kill before my shuttle arrives to take me home sweet home.
For breakfast I went down to the café just under the hotel to pick up one of their yogurt parfaits and a cappuccino. Cue the French music!
The parfait was delicious, but it was more on the dessert end of the spectrum than I had hoped after a weekend of indulgence. The yogurt was vanilla (which I really do find too sweet) and the granola was like cookie crumbles – almost biscoff-y! Tasted great though.
I love getting fancy coffee drinks when I have breakfast by myself!
Now this is so weird: while I was at the beach, I picked up The Midwife’s Confession, which I had been planning to read for months. I didn’t realize until page one that it was set in Wilmington, miles from where I was reading. And then I got to part of the book when they went to the beach – nearly the same beach where I was reading!!
Next book in line turned out to be Fifty Shades of Grey and what do you know – it’s set in Seattle. Another strange coincidence was that in the first book during the string of emails, the dates were RIGHT NOW. I was reading an email they wrote on May 31 on May 31. AND in their June 2 email, my wedding anniversary, the time the email was sent was 10:26. Of all the times in the day and all the dates of the year, I couldn’t believe those two were combined.
As I was reading book 2 this morning, I’m moving along when they have to go to a hotel and of all the hotels in Seattle, which hotel do they go to? THE FAIRMONT OLYMPIC! Where I am sitting right now.
I kind of feel like there’s a ghost in the room… soooooo strange!!
I’m also reading Happiest Baby on the Block and have a baby in me – can I call that a coincidence as well!?
Back to Fifty Shades, I really didn’t like it at first. The writing is quite horrible (I can’t STAND the “his mouth formed a hard line” and “my inner goddess did XYZ” <—- sooooo annoying and repeated over and over) and really the plot isn’t that great either. But I was glad when the plot went in a direction that I didn’t totally expect in book 1. But it’s an easy read and I’m moving through the books quickly and overall, enjoying them. I wouldn’t be surprised if they all turn into vampires in the end though – just seems to be where the book is headed. And other than the crazy sex scenes, I’m not really sure what the hype is all about! Probably just the sex : )
Very ready to get home to sweet summertime!!
