Book: How To Party With An Infant
Author: Kaui Hart Hemmings
Indigo Summary
When Mele Bart told her boyfriend Bobby she was pregnant with his child, he stunned her with an announcement of his own: he was engaged to someone else.

Fast forward two years, Mele’s daughter is a toddler, and Bobby and his fiancée want Ellie to be the flower girl at their wedding. Mele, who also has agreed to attend the nuptials, knows she can’t continue obsessing about Bobby and his cheese making, Napa-residing, fiancée. She needs something to do. So she answers a questionnaire provided by the San Francisco Mommy Club in elaborate and shocking detail and decides to enter their cookbook writing contest. Even though she joined the group out of desperation, Mele has found her people: Annie, Barrett, Georgia, and Henry (a stay-at-home dad). As the wedding date approaches, Mele uses her friends’ stories to inspire recipes and find comfort, both.

What I have to say: 
I am part of a book club and this was our pick for September. I found this book REALLY hard to get into and I had to force myself to finish it so that I would be prepared for book club. The title of the book is...misleading...there is no 'partying', it's parents sitting at a playground telling stories. There were a lot of characters, each with their own story- which inspires a recipe- and characters within stories, so it was hard to follow at times and to remember who was who and who was dealing with what. When Mele attends her ex's wedding, it gets kinda good and I wanted to know what would happen next...but the book ended, which was disappointing.
Final verdict: 
Give this book a pass...I'll leave it at that.

Hey, It's Ok!
With Amber from Airing My Dirty Laundry
To have a had a great was great to celebrate with family.
That, after watching the first two debates, I beyond thankful that I live in Canada. 
To, after watching the first two debates, not understand how Donald Trump is candidate. It's a joke, right?
That I am crossing all of my fingers and toes in hopes that everything goes according to plan. 
To not be loving this season of How to Get Way With Murder. It seems kind of...anti-climatic after the first two seasons. And I have no idea who they are killing off...I don't really want to see anyone go.

Currently- September Edition

I have decided, after years of blogging, that I would jump on the 'currently' blog posts. I always enjoy reading other blogger's 'currently' posts, so I thought I would do my own, so here we go:

This book is a bestseller and has everywhere this summer! I bought it earlier this summer and am just now getting around to reading it.

Like most Canadians, I am listening to The Tragically Hip non-stop.

My social calendar for September! There is a lot going on this month and I want to make sure I can do all of it- or at least the majority of it!

Sad that summer is over! I feel that summer went to quickly and I didn't have the chance to really enjoy it.

September! As much as I LOVE summer, September is my favourite month. The weather is still warm enough for the beach and other favourite summer activities, but the humidity is down and the tourists are gone. Plus fun fall activities like fairs and homecoming.
