Bridget Jones and My Mr. Darcy

Funny that a Bridget Jones book would spur my desire to get back to blogging. Not that I ever took a blog break mind you. I blog for a living for my job and thus my own blog took. I felt like I was online enough. Blogging enough..

Then I realized that I missed being here...sharing, posting, writing without it being about work related I'm back.

Kind of like Bridget who I adore!

I just finished the newest book.. Bridget Jones Mad about the Boy.

BOOK SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!

I had heard rumors about Helen Fielding (the talented author) having Mark Darcy die in the book. And I'll admit..I wasn't too thrilled to hear this. After all..I live and breathe for Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice and yes of course.. Mr. Darcy.

I read all the books written by authors carrying on in place of Jane..and their idea of what happens after we close the books..and our characters lives move on. I've watched the movies, BBC, (yes I even own two copies of Pride & Prejudice) name it..I'll watch it in the hopes of feeling like I did the very first time I watched Pride & Prejudice. Magical..

I wondered would I even like this new book...knowing something happened to Mark?? How would Bridget live without her man? Needless to say..she does live on..albeit it difficult for some time and years..but what made me want to write today was how beautifully the story ended. And how much it made me cry!! 

Yes Bridget is at the weight she wants and Twitter followers aplenty...but in the end despite losing her beloved Mr. Darcy...she finds herself in love with a new man... Scott.

The book and the ending really hit home for me...after all I almost lost my "Mr. Darcy" to a major heart attack this past January. And yes..the idea of going on without him is and was completely unimaginable to me. When I read about Bridget's new love, who she felt in the end her Mr. Darcy would approve of for she and her children, was named Scott..I forgave Helen Fielding for the pain and suffering she put Bridget through and thanked her for naming her new love's name..

I'm thankful every day I still have my Mr. Darcy... Scott! And I'm thankful my favorite Bridget (who I fancy myself a bit like too) has her Scott as well!

Houston's Quilt Market & Halloween

Life has been incredibly busy for me since starting my new job with Therm O Web!

One of the perks is that I just got back from attending the Houston Quilt Market. I'll admit I have not been there before but I look forward to going back!

If you've never are some photos I took during the show and this is only a small fraction of all there is to see there.

Therm O Web had a booth there. My talented teammates manned the booth while I walked the show meeting lots of new partners in the industry.

Here's a peek into this incredible show... 

Hope you'll also give a like to Therm O Web on Facebook and Twitter if you already do not! I'm manning their Social Media along with the Designers and future Education programs for Consumers and I have to say I am very very excited!

And we had another amazing time on Halloween! I decked the inside of the house out like never before and we tackled the outside. Pictures soon to come but here is Haley looking mighty creepy before she and her friends haunted the cemetery!

Quick shot of our yard in the looks great with the strobes and foggers and Haley's creepy friends walking around..

More pictures of the house during the day to come!

Seeking Homes for our Boston Terrier Puppies

Male Puppy "Nacho"

Sadly it's time...time to think about finding a home for three out of five of our Boston Terrier puppies.

These beauties were born on August 4, 2012 to our amazing Bostons...Peso and Lira.

Both are purebreds and absolutely stunning red Boston Terriers. The puppies are 5 weeks old today and will be ready for their homes on Saturday, September 29th. They will be 8 weeks old and have had their checkups and first round of required vaccinations from our veterinarian.  

We have two boys and one stunning white faced girl.(update Tala is sold and Juan is pending)

All are wonderful Boston Terriers are known to be. Hand raised in our home and loved every second since they've entered our life.

Email Julia for information about making one of these your family's pet!
