My Favorite Week

First of all, I just wrote a whole post and this dang computer ate it. I know nobody cares, but a few of you relate, and I wanted to share. In So Over My Head, a carnival rolls into town and camps out all summer. This was loosely based on a fair that comes to a […]

The Summer (non)Style Report

Summer…it’s almost here. I still don’t get out for a few weeks, but I can see the light. I’m already transitioning into my summer sleep hours. Last night I went to bed at midnight. Just because I wanted to. And this morning I barely woke up. And thought my summer transition thing was the dumbest […]

It’s Like We’re Twins

Congrats to Erin, winner of the blurb contest. I tweaked her “bringing funny back” to “Bringing Sassy Back” and it won with you guys AND with me. I love it. I hope people don’t think I’m being all ego-driven and boastful. For the record I don’t think sassy went missing, but I love the nod […]

Lend Me Your Brains

Okay, first I gotta tell you that life just keeps getting more and more exciting around here. First my cat flies up a tree, demonstrating his previously unknown superhero skills. Much mayhem followed. Then tonight…TONIGHT I experienced my first earthquake. A nearby town had a small about three weeks ago. But I didn’t feel it. […]

Monday, You Showed Up. Again.

In lieu of a post (because I am suffering from End of School Year Brain Fry), I thought we could talk blogs. Here are some I love. 1. MacGregor Literary’s blog. The May 14th blog on acquisitions was awesome if you’d like a look behind the scenes in publishing.His blog always gets mentioned in Writer’s […]

YouTubular Friday

I know everyone in the world has seen it by now, but this third grader is just freakin’ awesome. I love that moment when he hits the bridge and just totally goes for it. He’s almost as awesome as this kid. He also has a moment of belting it out at just the right spot. […]

My Weekend In Pictures

This is where things get boring. This is where you go check out Meg Cabot’s blog. This weekend I got a bee in my bonnet and decided to paint my tiny guest bathroom. I’ve been under the weather forever, but I knew when that motivation to paint hit that things were getting back to normal. […]

Creepers Will Be Dealt With

Happy mid week! If you’re like me, and you’re trying to stay up on the Nashville flood situation, my friend and excellent blogger Ashley is doing an awesome job reporting about the disaster HERE.  The last few days, as she’s posted about the flood, have obviously been somber, but her blog is otherwise so funny […]

Manic Monday

I have been stuck like glue to my laptop, watching every single Twitter update that pops up for updates on Nashville, TN. Have you seen THIS? I have been praying all weekend for my Thomas Nelson family and the Nashville area in general. I can’t even imagine. On the upswing, it has taken my mind […]

So Over My Head

So Over My Head would describe my week. And the entire month of April. Anyone else?  Thank goodness the weekend is HERE! WOOO! A sweet reader emailed and suggested I preview another chapter from the latest Bella Kirkwood installment and pick it from the middle. So since I’m a little news-less, I thought I would […]

Is This Only Wednesday?

Before I go any further, I have to get this out of my system. Stick with it. Just when you think it’s close-worthy, they change it up. Did you check out the Jack Black wanna-be? You know he probably left that lobby with some phone numbers. It looked like the lobby of my first dorm. […]

But Remember, We’re All Winners

Congrats to the winners of So Over My Head. We had such a great response to the week’s question, that I picked three winners instead of one. I should charge everyone a dollar though, because that question cost me MAJOR BUCKS. I had to order a bunch of books afterward!  Anyway, the winners are….Vanessa, Margaret, […]

Can I Blog From Prison?

First of all, stick around for new giveaway details. But that’s later. Right now, you need to know that this is going to be one of those stories that would go much better with pictures. But I don’t have them. Friday night I decided it had been a long time since I had gotten in […]
