This is our pick for the month & we will meet in March to discuss it.
And a summary for last months book. Oh my where was my camera for this book club because we had the most luscious desserts Candace, Julie, and Angela. Cindi hosted and bought the most divine cupcakes from a bakery with 6 different flavors to choose from. We all ended up splitting them so we could taste at least two. You know that we had great beverages when the Diet Coke is still sitting on the counter unopened.....yes I said unopened! Cindi had purchased Italian Soda's from Target that were such fun flavors. We all had a hard time talking about "The Help" because we couldn't stop talking about the food.
Everyone really enjoyed the help and our conversation covered every nook and cranny of racism. It was great to be with a group of women who aren't racist. We all thought it was terrible how long racism went on and still goes on in parts of our country. This book was very entertaining and an eye opener for all.
To top off our night we watched the men's figure skating competition in the Olympics. If you haven't ever watched the Olympics with a group of women you should try it as it gets very hilarious and entertaining. We decided we don't like "pelvis pumping" or the "licking" of their palms in men's figure skating, however we did laugh pretty hard.
