  1. Ah, donuts…seem to be on your mind a lot, huh? ;)

    I’m thankful that your school year is over now too…so I can quit hearing about it. Again ;).

    On a serious note, I want to get to the Fables series sometimes. Unfortunately, I can’t find it at any libraries and it’s a bit of an expense if I want to buy them (and I do).

    1. LOL! You’re tired of me talking about it and I’m tired of being bothered by it!

      Oh no! That sucks that the libraries around you don’t have the series. :-(

  2. Yay for having a break! Those challenges sound great I will join the estella event. I’m excited to hear about your event . I’m hosting one this summer too I’m going to email you at some point to see if you can do a post . :)

  3. Gotta luv Salt N Pepa, happy reading :) I’m curious about your mystery project.
    I’m trying to finish up two books and a crochet project this week so I can get reviews up. Happy Sunday.

  4. I still have another week of school, but I’m pretending that summer is already here. I’m ready for some rest and relaxation, too.

    Can’t wait to hear about your project!

  5. Thanks for giving a shout out to the JLC7 in your Sunday Salon. So glad you’re joining in, and I would like to recommend Crow Boy as a read aloud for you and your kids. It’s such a lovely children’s book, which always reminds me of important lessons such as not to judge others.

  6. Story:

    Back when “Push It” was a big hit, my mother was taking an aerobics class. One day “Push It” came on the radio, and she practically yelled, “I LOVE THIS SONG!” and started dancing all over the kitchen and singing along. I was BLOWN AWAY. Haha! Turns out it was a song frequently used in her aerobics class. It was so awesome listening to my mom sing the lyrics and dance to it.

    I love Salt-N-Pepa.

  7. I admire any college student, who can read while in college!! I never had that opportunity, but of course, I was a poor college student and never thought to get a library card. Yeah, crazy!! Thank goodness for e-readers though!! I think now that I’m post-college, 10 years now from graduate school, I have certainly had fun catching up!

  9. Ooooh, you have a mysterious project! I’m intrigued. :) I didn’t know about that challenge from the Estella Project but I signed up!

  10. I’m so happy for you that the semester’s over, and that you’ve decided to take that much deserved year off from school! I hope by the end of it, you find yourself refreshed and reinvigorated! (Though with all you still have on your plate, I’m sure it’s not exactly going to feel like a vacation!)

    Hmmmmmm…so intrigued by the mysterious project reference…can’t wait to hear about it!
