mostly my upcoming wedding, but I got a new book...

No it's not a Kindle or an E-reader... 
but it does  have the books and it is something for someone who already has a ds, 
but can't afford a kindle.
I like it it even has background noises and music so that way it can help you relax 
while reading. ;) very enjoyable. :) 
Willie bought it for me to use during the trip up down to Florida and back. 
I read during LONG car trips. 
This way I have an entire book shelf to take with me anywhere!
I am very excited !!!!!! I love the written word! :) 
Now gaming may not be for everyone 
and this 'game' may not be for all the gamers like my Husband (I love saying that! ^_^)
But It is a wonderful invention for girls like me 
who's man is a gamer and sweetly buys her a unit that will cut into his gaming time. 
I love him. <3  
So, Happy Reading! :)


  1. Thank you Liz! :) I am very excited about it. :) I am really enjoying it. :) Willie says that I have taking over his ds... :) He says he needs to get me a dsi. Its a ds, but has more features to it. :) I plan on blogging about the books I read , but am thinking that I may wait until after the honeymoon to do so, and just have fun until then. ;) I am like a butterfly fluttering here and there to all the different flowers. :) This way I can get to know it and pick which one I'm doing first. :)


Thank you for all of your Lovely comments. ^_^
