Tamara
  • Read A Gentleman in Moscow. This is the first book she's read in ages where she would stop to go look something up (what kind of dog, what does the hotel look like and so on). If you have time to read, she really loved this one and recommends it. 
  • Watching G.L.O.W. (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) on Netflix with the husband. 
  • Taffy! She made homemade old fashioned salt water taffy at home. The younger teen helped. This will be a new family holiday season tradition. She wrote a blog post here with the recipe she likes best and tips.
