Oh gosh, friends, can you believe the week is over? I made it through the first week back at work (my college-adviser job; you know I’m a writer 365 days a year!), and am anxiously awaiting the three-day weekend. I’m taking my mother to see The Lovely Bones for her birthday. She read the book over the holidays and has been like an anxious child waiting for it to come out; it’s sort of cute! What are you doing this weekend?
P.S. Thank you for all the wonderfully amazing comments on my first video blog last week. I was sort of hesitant to do one (I know…Me + Hesitant = SHOCKING), but it turned out so fun, don’t you think? I may be doing another one next week, so stay tuned!
While you enjoy the weekend, here are my Top 5 Favorite Blogs this week…
