Friday Five

1. Today's my mother's birthday! Need to call her and wish her a happy one! Funny how you never really realize how much you love and appreciate them until you have kiddos of your own!



She's the one on the far left hand side. We have similar smiles, don't you think?

2. The fab Mandy at YABC send me some goodies:



Right now reading: A DARKNESS STRANGE AND LOVELY




It's set in Victorian Paris with zombies. Got to love that!

3. Finished reading the last book in the ABANDON series by Meg Cabot



Totally love the humor mixed with a retelling of a Greek mythology tale.

4. Decided to go back to my revision, since I've had others asking me about it. Here's a teaser I posted on GRAPEMO:

Espie's first encounter with those from outside her community:

A sick sensation of a bazillion insect legs scampered up my body. A strong prompting to run as fast away from them hit me. But my legs were frozen in place.

Weasel face smirked and punched the shoulder of his overweight balding companion.

“Bet she’s from that weirdo place over the hill.” He grinned my way. Yellow teeth with food partials did nothing to ease my uneasiness.

“Nah, ya scaring her.” The other man smirked. “Hey, Sweetheart, why don’t you join us out of this godforsaken sun?”

Weasel face cracked open the car's door. I winced in disgust. He thrust his dirt encrusted nails in my direction.

“Come on, we don’t bite.”


5. Totally BUMMED that my French class was canceled.



**Did see the most adorable family movie this week:



**Guilty Pleasure:

After going to yoga?



Husband wants to go out on a 'date' night. It's my turn to chose. I'm thinking Thai food. Nom
