Recommendation: All We Ever Wanted Was Everything


 
I picked up this book at Borders about a month ago because it looked like a fun read (and it was part of the Buy One, Get One 1/2 Off; I'm a sucker for anything that's less than full price).  Anyway, it's a throughly entertaining, quick, easy read.  It's about a woman and her two daughters.  The woman, who lives in an upscale neighborhood, finds out on the day of her husband's company's IPO that her husband has been cheating on her with her best friend and is leaving her (and taking the fortune he just made in the IPO with him).  Her life starts to fall apart and we quickly learn that the lives of her two daughters, one of whom is in her 20's and one of whom is in high school, have been unraveling as well.  The story is fun to read and, despite their many flaws, I found myself routing for these three women.  If it were summer, I would say this is the perfect beach read, but since fall temperatures are starting to arrive, I'll say it's a great book to curl up with under a blanket on a rainy day.

I had the most delicious apple cider from my local coffee shop last night. It was too die for! I'm thinking of seeing if I can pick some up at Eastern Market this weekend, as well.

sy - you can buy it year round and actually hubby drinks it by the gallon right about now, in july he asked me to get him some and i said no. i told him it wasn't right and he has to wait till at least Sept. he protested. i stood my ground. i said, if you want it, you can go to the store and get it yourself. he waited. i win. :)

Yeah, cider is defs a fall thing! :) Haus, you come up with some great ideas for food - you really should write up a cookbook or something! :P

I'm excited about apple cider. I overheard the owner of our local coffee shop talk about serving it tomorrow! Yee!! (p.s. I don't know if it's available year-round, it may be, but it doesn't seem right to drink cider in july...)

I bet it would be good with caramel sauce...

Me too Martini! The pumpkin pie blizzards from DQ are awesome. This ice cream is just pumpkin though, no pie crust pieces or pie pieces. I think they could improve that.

It's hot cocoa flavored with mini marshmallows in it. Maybe I'll buy it on Monday!
