I have had my eye on this patio furniture set for some time… and then my cousin emailed me telling me it went on sale! Well how in the world could I pass that up?!?!

My Mom met me so we could use her SUV (I have the worst car for moving things – however it is oh so cute!). She helped me bring it up to the apt, un-wrap it, and set it all up! I absolutely love it! I sat out there one night just by myself, no book, no phone, and no wine – just me and Vito. The wind was blowing; it was so quiet and relaxing. Perfect for clearing my mind from all the stress I’ve had lately… Thanks for helping me Mom!! You’re the best! Don’t know what I would have done without you!!! I love you!

Sorry It's Been So Long!!!

I know, I know – where have I been?? I honestly don’t have a good excuse, except that I have been completely swamped at work, and the last thing I feel like doing in the evenings is getting on a computer… especially mine because its so old and slow I am scared its going to explode any minute…

I have been reading up a storm lately! I started (and finished) all three of
Jen Lancaster’s Memoirs’. I have followed her blog for quite some time and was happily entertained by how funny and witty she is; but had not read one of her novels, even though my sister told me repeatedly how hilarious they were.

Then I found out she was coming to Houston!!! Well, of course I wanted to go meet her with my sister!! But I couldn’t go meet the author if I had never read one of her novels!! So I picked up Bitter is the New Black and started reading… and then I couldn’t put it down! On to #2 – Big Lights, Big A$$– again, not putting it down!! Now for #3 – Such a Pretty Fat – had me laughing out loud!!! She was coming to Houston to promote Book #4 – Pretty in Plaid. I am now about ½ way through it and seeing she hasn’t lost her charm!

It was so cool getting to meet her! I had never met an author before! She did a reading, took some questions, and then started signing – Stephanie and I were of course no more than 5 people back :) Here are some pics from our exciting meeting with
Jen Lancaster!!!
And seriously, if you aren’t a fan already – get on it!!
I got the book - waiting to meet her!! Jen Lancaster - Doing a reading (did I mention she is hilarious??)
Waiting to get my book signed :)
Me with Jen Lacaster!!!!! WOOHOOO

Lets hope another 2 months won't pass me by before I post again :)
