I have something to share with you.

It has been months since I posted.  I took a new job last year and it has taken me this long to get the balance back into my life. My reward:  a two-week vacation(one week away with my husband and one week at home with my daughter) and unplugging from the work devices (absolutely necessary).

So what did I get to do during these two weeks?  (Re)Discover my love of reading. Click the books below to check out some entertaining summer reading!


My 15 Favorites of 2015

I have something to share with you.

Happy New Year!  It’s been a fun year with over 130 new posts on Something to Share with You, the chance to “explore” 23 different cities and too many amazing meals to count.  Here are my 15 favorites from 2015.

Kid Friendly:

  • Surprise Mommy-Daughter Dates
    My favorite post of the entire year since I get to plan a surprise date with my daughter every month!  I hope you read this post and plan some fun dates with your kids!!

Beauty and Fashion:


  • The Starbucks app
    Easiest way to pay for bottled water, snacks and oh yeah, coffee at the airport!

Just Because:

  • A Treat for the Feet:  Snoozies Slippers
    These are on my feet from the minute I get home till I get in bed!
  • Have time to read?  Liane Moriarty
    Download some books and find some time to read! Great for shorter flights!

Foodies: Recipes & Stuff:

On the Road Eats:


  • Favorite Lunch- Peska in Houston
    $25 for an appetizer, soup or salad and an entrée.  Try the mexican shrimp cocktail and the Fideo Seco(mexican pasta in a light sauce with calamari, shrimp, clams and mussels).


Hope you enjoyed this short trip back through 2015!  Looking forward to great new favorites this year!

I have something to share with you.

I read The Skimm(if you don’t, check it out) and recently they highlighted a book “Maybe In Another Life” by Taylor Jenkins Reid.  I had just finished 4 Erin Hildebrand books and was looking for a new author to get hooked on.  So off to Amazon to download a new book to my kindle/iPad.

Maybe in Another Life was definitely a quick read and after only 3 short flights, I finished it.  The story alternates in each chapter, what happens in the future depending on who Hannah leaves the bar with – her best friend or her high school boyfriend.  Since it was such an easy read, I downloaded a second book by the same author and finished that book, After I Do.  This is a story about marriage and two people who decide to take a year off in the hopes of finding a way to fall in love with each other again.

Both easy reads if you are looking for some new books for the plane or new books for bedtime reading!

I mentioned I love my Kindle and have the Kindle app on my iPad for reading on my business trips.  I recently finished a few books by Erin Hildebrand and recommended them to a recent flight companion.  They are easysummer reads and fun to read about drama that is not your own!

The Matchmaker is a story about a woman in Nantucket that has a gift for matchmaking and the story of her own love life, both losing and finding true love.  Beautiful Day is a story about a Nantucket wedding being planned to the wishes of the bride’s late mother, who left behind The Notebook with  specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter’s future nuptials.  It’s a fun story about love, marriage and commitments.  And third is The Rumor, a story about two best friends in Nantucket and how a rumor sets off a drama-filled summer on the island.
