Favorite Things Friday


I'm a little bummed because it's my Saturday to work, but I won't have to work another one till January, so it's all good. So. Time for my favorite things this week, and I have to apologize, because it's mostly centered around books. I'm a nerd, I know.

1. The Blogger Book Club Video Chat. You guys. You should all feel like you missed out, because you did (but don't worry, you have the chance to redeem yourself tomorrow at 1:00pm central time). Kaylee, Kim, Kristen, Amanda, and I all got to chat face to face and spill our feelings about The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  I would tell you the general consensus, but I'll wait till the link up on TUESDAY to spill it. 
2. The Book Club I went to last night. Yes, a real, live book club with real, living people. It was a group of women from church, and I mostly went so that I could attempt this whole "socializing" thing. Did I read the book? Heck no, but I got some delicious pumpkin cheesecake bread out of it. And I laughed - a lot.

3. Michael Connelley. You guys. My dad has been reading this dude's books for years, and he never recommended them to me. I'm actually a little offended - does the man think I don't know/appreciate good literature? Whatever - point is, his books are awesome and you should read them. All of them.
4. My cat. I'm running out of favorites, but you all know how I feel about lists of five, so here I am telling you how awesome my cat is. This is what happens when I get desperate - I turn into a crazy cat lady.

5. Promoting you guys. You have no idea how much I love coming up with silly raps or games to promote you guys and help you grow your blogs. I think you're all pretty awesome, and I enjoy getting to know you! That being said... I have one large ad and some small and medium spots left for November. Be advised that November is my birthday month, so things will get pretty crazy over here.
That's all. Have a fabulous weekend, and don't forget about the book club link up on Tuesday! 

PS - if anyone is interested in promoting their blog with a giveaway during my birthday week, that would be awesome. I'm allowing anyone to participate in a giveaway, rather than just paying sponsors this month. I hate to do it, but I'll be limiting how many "free ad spaces" I accept, so just keep that in mind.

Can we swap in November? Would love to be part of birthday month! Cats are awesome. That is all.

I love perks! It's one of my favorite books and I'm dying to see the movie.

M. said...

oh, I'll give something away during your birthday week. Something tangible. I love birthdays!

RadiantKristen said...

I love that both of our cats decided to be a part of the book club chat last night! Silly kitties...

I have to work tomorrow too... so never fear, you have someone to talk to ALL DAY!

Kym said...

Yay for birthday month! I'm so down to participate in a giveaway :) Sounds like it will be fun!!


Madison said...

Every time I've looked up Perks at the library, every copy is checked out/on hold/missing... So I don't think I'll be able to participate in the club this time sadly. Are you doing this monthly or every few months or what? I'd like to try again next time

I may be able to participate in a giveaway in November. Let me know when your birthday week so I can find out if I can :)

Hey awesome lady, shoot me an email, I'd love to give away some ad space for your birthday week!


Emily said...
