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 :)

How cool is that?

I still haven't read the last book!

The others were pretty dang hilarious, though.

I have never heard of her before. I will definitely have to check out her blog. I have totally missed your blogging, especially Muggle Monday's.

I have only read the first one (thanks to your sis!)
I loved it..I need to read the rest of them!
Welcome back to blogworld...you have been missed! (even though seeing you in person is better than reading updates! lol)
Happy Hour Soon?!?!/ :)
