This and that...

Remember when I said I was going to cut back on my Library usage in order to finish reading some of the books that I've started but never finished? Yea, I do, too. Well, when I took stock of my book situation yesterday this is what I saw:

Yep, you counted right, there are 6 Library books there! And the best part: I actually had 10 checked out at the time, but 2 were in my car ready to make the trek back to their Library home and 2 were sitting on my side table missing out on photo time. So much for starting off the New Year by working on every one of my goals. Haha! Oh well, it's only January...


On an entirely different note, as per Courtney's request here is a picture of me in my perfect, beloved black cardi from Target (please ignore the fact that I have on black sweats and a bit of a scowl):

This isn't the best pic, but this cardi truly is wonderful! It's warm, flattering and goes with just about everything. I'm obviously smitten!


And, for my final tangent on this lovely Friday afternoon, I would like to get some feedback on hosting a giveaway. As a few of you know, my mom makes fused glass jewelry (earrings, pendants and the occasional bracelet). Her pieces are gorgeous and I have yet to wear a pair of earrings or a pendant without getting compliments. Well, Mom has graciously offered to let me have a pair of earrings for a giveaway, but before saying yes I wanted to put out some feelers. I don't have a ton of followers (which is fine by me) but for those of you out in Blogland who do read my ramblings, would you all be interested in winning a pair of fused glass earrings? I apologize for not having any pictures of Mom's work, but I'll try to get a few up this weekend. Please let me know your thoughts!

Happy weekend, everyone!!! It's a 3 day weekend for me, so I'm over the moon right now! Do any of you have big weekend plans?


  1. Yes yes please! I love new earrings, I would be interested and I would blog on mine so that could bring more people over (although it would also decrease my chances... so maybe not =))
    And thanks for the picture, I need to go find my "perfect" cardigan now!

  2. I literally have to prohibit myself from going to the library due to the fact that I always end up leaving with no less than twelve books!!

    I hope you have a wonderful three-day weekend full of reading and fun planned; and I would most definitely love to win a pretty pair of earrings!! :)

  3. I'm not huge on wearing earrings but anything hand made with love is always going to get my vote. : D

    LOOOOVE the cardigan, aaand pfft if we stuck to all of our resolutions imagine how boring the world would be ...or at minimum our blogs. hehe

  4. I love books!! I cant wait to read this weekend!! :-)

  5. Hiiii! First off, I love the Meg Cabot book. Hope you enjoy it!

    I think a giveaway would be fab...mine definitely got me some new readers. However, just a suggestion. I know some people make it a requirement that you become a follower of that person's blog to enter, but I didn't do that because I wanted to know that my followers were there because they wanted to be there, not just for a giveaway. Instead, I asked people to blog and tweet about it for extra entries...that help spread the word and bring some new readers over!

  6. Um. YES Please!! I would be interested.
    Well, good for you using the library! I, on the other hand have not been in my library for 2 months now!!


Thanks for stopping by!
