Happy Anniversary!

It’s been a year since my first blog post (hey, do me a favor and don’t read it, okay? It’s kind of embarrassing…) and I can’t believe it!  It’s kind of fun to go back and reflect (which I’ll probably do a bit this week).  And I’m kind of in the mood to give something away, soooo….

Leave a comment below and let me know the title of your favorite post, and you’ll be entered into a random drawing for one of my favorite books of all time, Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris.  If you aren’t familiar with his work, he is a bestselling humorist author, and one of the only authors on the planet who has the ability to make me laugh out loud while reading.  I recently discovered (while moving) that I have two copies of this awesome book, and I’d like to share it with one lucky reader in celebration of my blogiversary!

Make sure to comment below and check back to see if you win (or subscribe to my facebook page over there on the right, because I’ll announce the winner there, too)!  Contest will close at midnight EST on Wednesday, July 17.



Ready for More Liebster Answers?

Awhile back, I was nominated for the Liebster Award again, this time by Meredith at Looking Up With Down Syndrome.  Here are a few more answers to her 11 Questions:

7.  What is your favorite place and why?

I think this changes for everyone as they go through life, so currently, my favorite place is my new home.  I watched this house be transformed from a not-quite-livable shell into a really nicely appointed home.  I take special pride in it because The Man did all the work himself, and it’s my new favorite place because it’s already a lovely representation of us, all together now.

8.  What is your favorite book?

This question is like “Which is your favorite child?”  I cannot pick just one.  However, I will read anything by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Isabel Allende, and most Scandinavian crime fiction.  I love mysteries, as well as multi-generational family sagas like Greenlanders and Roots.  If a writer has a knack for writing good characters, I’ll be reading them for sure.

9.  You know that song that get’s stuck in your head even though you hate it – which song is that? Is it stuck in your head now? Hee hee hee.

I am very susceptible to earworms, and The Man teases me by singing the theme song to “Flipper” whenever he wants to annoy me…  Grrr….

Hope you are enjoying your last week of June.  I am enjoying my last week as a single lady! 😀
