Sunday Salon

Another week come and gone.
Lately I've been seeing quite a bit of posts about bloggers getting burned out from blogging, or just getting plain bored with it.  It seems like everyone is in need of some refreshing ideas, and new things.  I sorta feel the same way.  I never really faithfully jumped into the whole meme's thing.  I think it's because it felt somewhat like school, on this day you do this, and on this day you do that. Not my cup of tea.  I've decided to just post whenever I want.  If I just found out about a new interesting book coming out, i'll post about it, and not worry about it being posted on its correct day. It's my blog, right?

On the home front, tomorrow is my oldest child's birthday!  She (Jaci) will be turning 12.  Yes, the teens are just around the corner.  I'm blessed, she is a smart, vivacious wonderful girl, with a little bit of her momma's attitude (she loves to roll those eyes of hers).  She wants to be a fashion designer when she grows up, and she has no problem asking with a straight face if she can have 200 dollar boots.  You really have to smile at  her chutzpah.   I love this picture of her..she's laughing at something her dad is saying.

On the book front another great week in reading.  I finished 3 books this week, Stargirl- Jerry Spinelli, Enthusiasm- Polly Shulman, and Paper Towns by John Green.  I loved Paper Towns, but I really, really dislike Stargirl.  My reviews on all three should be up soon.  I'm going to try not to shred Stargirl....too much.  j/k! 

I'm currently reading Fallen by Lauren Kate for a book tour, and then I don't know what I'll pick up.  I've got so many great books to choice from.  I still have to finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson, which is so good, but it's the last book :( and I want to take my time reading it. 

My birthday is coming up on the 24th, not so exciting since i'll be turning 29 for the second year.  LOL!  I've decided to stay put there, so for now on every year is my 29th.  Okay, okay I'll own my age...31 (on the 24th).

Hope everyone has a great Sunday, and upcoming week.

I'm out


Team Conan!!!!!!


  1. Happy birthday to your daughter and upcoming birthday to you!

    And, absolutely, it's your blog! I've had to remind myself about that a lot since I've been busy and posting so sporadically lately!

  2. Team Conan indeed!

    I know what you mean about the whole meme thing. The last thing I want to feel is obligated to participate in something. Right now, i am getting a kick out of blog tours and reading romance! Next month? who knows!

    I'll read your blog whatever you do!

    take care.

  3. Happy birthday!

    Your daughter sounds adorable!

  4. I agree on the memes. I do some (when I can) and never sweat it.
