There are weeks we have tons to share and weeks we don't really have anything, and I think, I'm going to bore these people to death with my drone. This is one of those, not-much-to-say-weeks, but I'm going to talk anyway. LOL
A couple weeks ago I told you all that I was coaching JV cheerleading. Well, after a pretty stressful practice this week - kindergarten through third graders running amok, we cheered our first game yesterday and it went so well! Our varsity girls team won 31-11. While I always try to teach my daughter that it isn't about winning or losing, let's be honest, it feels pretty freaking good to win.
Nikki, shockingly enough, had a pretty dull week, too. She's back in school and loaded down with homework, but she did wiggle in some time to go see The Maze Runner, which she liked a lot. She's also become obsessed with Arrow. If any of you have ever binge watched a series, you know how consuming it can be, especially if you love it.
Just a reminder, the Race to 150 Giveaway is in full swing. Only 42 GFC followers until the winners are picked!

Sam McKenna’s never turned down a dare. And she's not going to start with the last one her brother gave her before he died.
So Sam joins the first-ever class of girls at the prestigious Denmark Military Academy. She’s expecting push-ups and long runs, rope climbing and mud-crawling. As a military brat, she can handle an obstacle course just as well as the boys. She's even expecting the hostility she gets from some of the cadets who don’t think girls belong there. What she’s not expecting is her fiery attraction to her drill sergeant. But dating is strictly forbidden and Sam won't risk her future, or the dare, on something so petty...no matter how much she wants him.
As Sam struggles to prove herself, she discovers that some of the boys don’t just want her gone—they will stop at nothing to drive her out. When their petty threats turn to brutal hazing, bleeding into every corner of her life, she realizes they are not acting alone. A decades-old secret society is alive and active… and determined to force her out.
At any cost.
Now time's running short. Sam must decide who she can trust...and choosing the wrong person could have deadly consequences.

One war that changed the world.
“Eric Dane has segregated the wealth and resources that remain, giving a select few the highest chance of survival and leaving the rest to starve!”
World War 3 lasted twelve days and almost eradicated the human species. Growing up in post nuclear America, Rebecca Davis remained blissfully ignorant of the despotic leadership that had seized what was previously the most powerful nation in the world. When the truth is revealed and Rebecca discovers that everything she has been taught is a lie, she is determined to fight for the life that she has not been allowed to live.
In order to do this, Rebecca has to cross the boundary fences and venture out of the safety of the New United States, into the barren wastelands. It is there that she finds allies she never dreamed existed.
In Rebecca, the Resistance has finally found the ultimate weapon.
“You were given this life Rebecca, because you alone are strong enough to live it.”
An action-packed, adrenalin inducing thrill ride that will have you riveted until long after you have turned the last page.
