Top 5 Netflix TV Shows I’ve been binge watching!



I started watching this when it came out, but  I didn’t really get into it, I have totally finished all 3 season on Netflix in under a month, if you haven’t watched it you need to start!

The 20s, murder, a hot police inspector, and a huge mystery involving a missing child from long ago, this show is AMAZING!!! It is set in Australia (I think) and has some interesting plot lines and amazing costumes!

I loved these books when I was younger and have been enjoying the series!

This show…. OMG this show!!! I Love it, and I desperately need to know IS RED HER FATHER??????

This is another one… I am ALWAYS on the edge of my seat never knowing what is going on, plus it has
Kelly Kaposki from Saved by the bell!!!


What are you watching??

Happy Thanksgiving!!!


I don’t post a lot about my religion on here because it is one of my things, (also don’t talk about politics often lol) But I think that everyone in any religion, in any time of their life can learn a little from this verse, in all things we should always give thanks.

I am thankful for:

My family who are always there when I need them to be!

Kensei, because he puts up with my drama and makes me feel loved

My Penni Puppy because she is literally like a baby to me, and always wants to cuddle with her mommy

You guys!! Everyone who takes the time out of their days to read the randomness that pops out of my brain!

What are you thankful for today?

Music Monday Is It Too Early??

For this weeks Music Monday I have 2 songs, one is a Christmas song and one from a musical,

The Christmas song is a song that I used to sing every year at church before I moved. and I LOVE this Version of it!

And then because I have honestly been singing this song every morning for about two weeks now on my way to school I felt like I should include it!

What are you listening to?

Baked Cranberry Orange Chicken!


I love making yummy fall/winter flavored foods and when I put this together I KNEW I needed to post about it!

I am sure someone else has thought of this, and you can probably find a recipe for it somewhere on the internet but this is what I decided to make for dinner tonight, while looking in our  ( mostly empty) fridge.

I decided to make some Orange Cranberry Baked Chicken.

This recipe makes about 5 servings: AND I figured out how to make nutrition facts so I will include that as well!

It is REALLY very simple!

You will need:

4-5 Boneless skinless Chicken breasts (I bet Turkey breast would be AMAZING if you can find it!)

6 oz. (or one small single serve container) Of Orange Juice, I used Simply Orange

4 oz. of jellied cranberry sauce

2 tbs of beef stew seasoning (because that just makes it easy)

and 1/4 cup of the Campbell's Sweet Onion soup for easy cooking


Mix all of these ingredients into an oven safe container

It would probably work better if all of your breasts were in a single layer, but I doubled mine up.

Place into an oven set at 350 degrees ferenheight for an hour.

Go do housework, play on YouTube, Do homework, or anything else while this cooks, (DO NOT NAP!!! Bad things happen when you cook and nap!! I know!)

After an hour come back and flip the breasts over, this may not be necessary but it is what I did!

Place back in oven for 30-55 min Check carefully because the sauce will burn if left to long.

Pull out of oven and let cool slightly before serving!

Angel Reads The Mistletoe Effect

The Mistletoe Effect

I am a sucker for a good Christmas story and this one is a cute and good Christmas story.

The story starts off with a runaway bride, on a ranch that is known for never having a wedding that takes place there end. So it forces our Hero and Heroine to get married on the spot. Carina is the dutiful daughter who really wants to do anything else other than work her families ranch. While she lets her family walk all over her, she is creative and spunky and humorous. Decker is a hardworking ranch hand who wants to be in charge. Carina and his Marriage is planned to be done with after the season, and even though you know they will stay together (it is a romance novel after all) I Loved the story of how they stay together.

The grandmother in this story really stole the show for me! She was hilarious like a cross between the mom and grandmother on the Nanny (that sitcom in the 90s?) She was smart and played the old card when needed, but she was determined to make Carina happy and knew just what buttons needed to be pushed to make it happen!

If you are looking for a laugh out loud, sweet, fun holiday read I totally recommend The Mistletoe Effect!!

I give this one 4 out of 5!

(This book was provided to me for free from Net Galley, but all opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are my own with out any influence.)

Angel Reads Viscount of Vice

Viscount of Vice (Covent Garden Cubs, #0.5)

I was sent this book for an honest review from Net Galley for free, all opinions are my own and reflect my own personal view of this book!

When Net Galley sent me this book I was super excited I love Shana Galen books and have a rather nice collection of her work in storage in paperback form from my move. So I was thrilled when I got a chance to read a new books of hers.

This is a short Novella and honestly I wouldn’t have minded a little more to this book because it did seem to go by a little fast. Lady Emma was an amazing heroine, she was determined and forceful and willing to do what needed to be done. Emma was spunky, and knew exactly what she wanted my main issue with her was that even though she had faith in the hero, when it came down to it romantically she didn’t have faith in him.

Flynn was also great, he wasn’t as cocksure as a lot of romance hero's can be, he has his flaws and he knows them. While Emma always loved him, it took Flynn a little while to realize he loved her back.

It was a fun quick read and a pretty good introduction to the series, although we didn’t meet a lot of the other players in this book.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars.

Music Monday

I tried so hard to pick a single song this week, but as usual I have 2 for you guys, I’ve been feeling slow and kind of sad songs lately.

Caravan Of Love

Pixie Lott

Are you ready for the time of your life?

It's time to stand up and fight

Hand in hand we'll take a caravan to the motherland

One by one we gonna stand up with pride,

One that can't be denied

Now the children of the world can see

There's a better place for us to be!

The place in which we were born,

So neglected and torn apart

Every woman, every man join the Caravan Of Love,

Stand up!

Everybody take a stand, join the Caravan Of Love,

Stand up!

He's my brother, he's my brother, don't you know?!

I'm your sister, I'm your sister, don't you know?!

Uuh uuh

We'll be living in a world of peace

And the day when everyone is free

We'll bring the young and the old

Won't you let your love flow from your heart?

Every woman, every man join the Caravan Of Love,

Stand up!

Everybody take a stand, join the Caravan Of Love,

Stand up!

He's my brother, he's my brother, don't you know?!

I'm your sister, I'm your sister, don't you know?!

Every woman, every man join the Caravan Of Love

Stand up


Olly Murs
