5. Brianna  “What an awful name for a wee Lassie.”  Jamie’s first reaction to Brianna’s name was not what Claire was expecting. After a moment Jamie gets used to her name, he pronounces it Bree-ina. It is going to be so sweet to see Jamie looking through the photos of Brianna.  4. Come here to … Continue reading 5 things we are dying to hear Jamie say in Episode 306

Outlander Episode 305: Freedom and Whisky

Outlander Season 3 Episode 5 In last week's recap of Episode 304, I mentioned that it was a very “Jamie heavy” episode and I guessed that episode 305 would be very “Claire heavy.” I was right of course but it wasn’t hard to be right because in the books we are kept in the dark … Continue reading Outlander Episode 305: Freedom and Whisky

Outlander Episode 304 Recap: Of Lost Things

This episode had the potential to reinact two very cringe-worthy scenes. I have to say, that I am pleasantly surprised by how well Toni Graphia navigated these two scenes in episode 304.  *making little notes every time I see a Lost thing...just for fun...cause why not? *Lost Husband We open in Scotland, 1968, picking up … Continue reading Outlander Episode 304 Recap: Of Lost Things

Outlander Episode 303 Recap: All Debts Paid

Outlander Season 3 episode 3 All Debts Paid, was written so beautifully by Matthew B. Roberts. I felt like I was watching two completely different shows. Claire and Jamie's lives are so utterly independent from the other physically, it's hard to imagine them ever being together in the same frame again.  We open in Boston … Continue reading Outlander Episode 303 Recap: All Debts Paid

Outlander Episode 302 Recap: Surrender

Episode 302 entitled, Surrender has left me with So Many Feelings. Anne Kenney did an incredible job writing this episode. She seamlessly wove together the similarities of Jamie and Claire's lives and how they are coping without the other. There is something very interesting about the way this whole episode was shot, and the way it illustrated … Continue reading Outlander Episode 302 Recap: Surrender

Outlander Episode 301 Recap: The Battle Joined

As the opening credits begin and the Skye Boat song sails us through the title sequence, my eyes fill with tears. Not just because Droughtlander is finally over (thank heavens...and STARZ) but because of the journey our beloved and ill fated (at times) hero and heroine are about to endure. It's amazing what it does … Continue reading Outlander Episode 301 Recap: The Battle Joined

I had such a fun time fan-Girling with my best girl Becca.  We arrived just before 10 AM stood in a really long line to get tickets for the advanced screening. It really didn't take that … Continue reading Outlander Season 3: Advanced Screening 

Printshop? What Printshop? Take me to the whore house!

Everyone is like "Oh my gosh I can't wait for the print shop!" "The reunion is going to be all kinds of amazing!" "Do you think Jamie will faint as gracefully as described in the book?" "The looks on Jamie and Claire's faces when they see each other is going to break my heart!"  And … Continue reading Printshop? What Printshop? Take me to the whore house!

Words from a Mother’s Heart

A mother's heart is tender, fierce and full of love.  As I sit here minutes before the clock strikes midnight, officially transforming my 12-year-old daughter into a teenager, I can't help but feel that time is just slipping away.  August 19th 2004 at just two minutes past noon, Leina Christabeth came into the world. After … Continue reading Words from a Mother’s Heart
