Random Wednesday

Linking up with Shanna today for a little bit of randomness today.

Confession: I love these little realty t.v. clips.  Can’t stop laughing whenever I see them!

Haha, every time!

Did you hear about Blue Ivy’s first birthday party?
 
Supposedly, Beyonce and Jay-Z spent a whopping $200,000 buckaroos.  Crazy amounts of money spent on her gift ($80,000 diamond encrusted, custom made, Barbie doll), flowers/decorations, swag bags, costumes, cake, etc.  A little excessive maybe (you think), but I guess that’s what you get when you have these two mega-celebrities as your parents.
 
 
 
According to a recent survey done by the Center for Disease Control, Cincinnati ranks as #16 as the most hungover city in America.  Actually, Ohio leads all states by having FIVE cities in the top 25!  You can read the rest of the article here if you want to see if your city made the list.
 
 
 
I finished this book over the holidays and I couldn’t wait to share it with you ladies.  This was possibly one of my favorite novels of last year.  The story centers around a roadtrip between two strangers.  Usually this story-line would not peak my interests.  However, this book has it all!  Must read.

Every one year old needs a diamond-covered Barbie doll. And there's no way it could be a choking hazard, right? Geez...

I just finished that book too! Good read! Have you read Slammed or Point of Retreat? I really loved those and I just finished Sea of Tranquility. That was another goodie! I would consider all of those pretty similar.
