Take Me Home for Christmas by Brenda Novak Review

Christmas is a time for remembering…

Too bad not all memories are pleasant! Everyone in Whiskey Creek remembers Sophia DeBussi as the town's Mean Girl. Especially Ted Dixon, whose love she once scorned.

But Sophia has paid the price for her youthful transgressions. The man she did marry was rich and powerful but abusive. So when he goes missing, she secretly hopes he'll never come back—until she learns that he died running from an FBI probe of his investment firm. Not only has he left Sophia penniless, he's left her to face all the townspeople he cheated.

Sophia is reduced to looking for any kind of work to pay the bills and support her daughter. With no other options, she becomes housekeeper for none other than Ted, now a successful suspense writer. He can't bring himself to turn his back on her, not at Christmas, but he refuses to get emotionally involved. He learned his lesson the last time.

Or will the season of love and forgiveness give them both another chance at happiness?

Fitbit One Review

Get fit. Sleep better. All in the One™

If you want to turn fitness into a lifestyle, the One™ is for you. For starters, it never rests. During the day, it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and stairs climbed. Come nightfall, it measures your sleep quality, helps you learn how to sleep better, and wakes you in the morning. The One™ motivates you to reach your goals by bringing greater fitness into your life – seamlessly, socially, 24 hours a day.

This is the best tiny exercise coach you could have! Super easy to set up, very intuitive. It's very simple to clip it on and input your daily food into the online tracker. I love that it counts your steps, your stairs, your total miles and shows you if you've burned off enough calories to hit your weekly weight loss goal. FitBit has a great mobile and online dashboard that is color coded to show you at a glance how close you are to reaching your goal (I absolutely love, love, love the Fitbit dashboard). The Fitbit One holds its charge for about a week. It is splash proof and sweat proof. No regrets, it is truly fantastic and it will help motivate you to lose weight.
My sister (She has the Fitbit Zip) and I both had Fitbits (My dog broke mine a week ago and it doesn't work at all now) and it was somewhat of a competition between us to see who could get more steps, more floors, and the biggest flower.
