History Sites!

Video Hat tip: BZ

Bloviating Zeppelin did a neat post on where he would like to visit in the U.S. and asked where others would like to visit as well. I'm a HUGE history buff and I especially love American History.

I'm hoping to do a lot of traveling to historic sites over the years. As I've mentioned before, I love studying the U.S. presidents and hope to visit all the presidential museums. As long as I can convince myself to step foot into Carter's ;-).

As BZ asked, Where would you like to go? I'd love to hear what sites everyone would like to visit, please leave them in the comments section. Maybe some of you will have places I haven't even thought of.

--Greenfield Village & The Henry Ford Museum
--Gerald Ford Presidential Museum

MommyWood and Tori and Dean!

I have to confess that I was once a fan of Beverly Hills 90210. Yet, I wasn't necessarily a huge fan of Tori Spelling, but that changed when I read her book, Stori Telling. I was really impressed with how real, honest and genuine she was and I came away really liking her.

After that, I confess that I started watching her reality show, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood. Again, I was impressed with Tori's genuine desire to be a good Mom and her relationship with her husband. She has some Hollywood morals that I don't agree with, but I love people who are real and Tori is exactly that.

Her second book, Mommywood didn't reveal anything earth shattering but it was also good. Even as a Mom of 4 who has to do all the work myself with only my husband's help, I respected where Tori was coming from as a Mother.

I didn't agree with Entertainment Weekly's review at all when they described Tori and her Mom's books as "cheesy exhibitionism of the double Spelling literary acts".
