Taylor Swift Concert

I know this concert was almost 2 weeks ago and I'm just getting this posted.  Better late then never...I guess it could be even later!!  Ha!! 
Jeana and I surprised Liv and Aub with Taylor Swift concert tickets.  Let me just say that I am a BIG TS fan now!!  Ha!!  Her concert was amazing, and of course her songs are all good!! 
We had shirts made for the girls to wear...they looked so stinkin' cute!! 


 The girls holding up their best TS sign!!  Goin' gangsta!!  Ha!! 

Look who we found!?!?  It's Alyssa!!  :)

Taylor in action!!

She was sitting at this tree that was right in front of us! 

I think she was looking at us!  ;)

We had a really good time at the concert.  I did, however, learn that Liv will NOT be a late night partier, which is perfectly fine with me!  It got close to 10:00 and she was shuttin'er down!!  Takes after her momma like that!  :)
Nighty night!!

Stealing Jake by Pam Hillman

When Livy O'Brien spies a young boy jostling a man walking along the boardwalk, she recognizes the act for what it is. After all, she used to be known as Light-fingered Livy. But that was before she put her past behind her and moved to the growing town of Chestnut, Illinois, where she's helping to run an orphanage. Now she'll do almost anything to protect the street kids like herself.
Sheriff's deputy Jake Russell had no idea what he was in for when he ran into Livy--literally--while chasing down a pickpocket. With a rash of robberies and a growing number of street kids in town--as well as a loan on the family farm that needs to be paid off--Jake doesn't have time to pursue a girl. Still, he can't seem to get Livy out of his mind. He wants to get to know her better . . . but Livy isn't willing to trust any man, especially not a lawman.

I really enjoyed this book.  It was an easy read but kept my attention well enough to keep me wanting more.  Historical Fiction is one of my favorite genres, so the characters and time period fascinated me.  Stealing Jake did remind me a little of Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.  It was nice to read a lighter book after some of the more intense books I seem to find myself reading most of the time!  I would recommend this book as a good read!
