Happy Halloween My Sppoooookie Friends.

It's that time to link up with Michelle and Jamie

I'm LOVING that tomorrow my co-workers will bring in extra candy tomorrow and I can run around in a sugar high!

I'm LOVING snickers, m&ms, skittles, and all that yum-yum-yummmy candy!

I'm LOVING that I'm probably going to sit home with the lights out and pretend I'm not home so I don't have to share any of the candy I have -- DON'T JUDGE ME FOOL! I know you wish you could do the same! 
I'm LOVING this Halloween Song by Eat My Pumpkins. So funny and catchy:

I'm LOVING Game of Thrones! I finally had a chance to watch season one. I'm tempted to read the books so I can keep up with what's going on!

I'm LOVING my Spiced Pumpkin Candle from Yankee Candle. Smells...divine! 
I'm LOVING Shark Tank - the television show. I'm late on this bandwagon. I want to go back and watch old re-runs. That's how much I love it.

I'm LOVING the video of the baby elephant that runs to it's mom after being pulled out of a hole. 
Have you seen it?  It's so sweet. Watch it HERE.

Hooker Tendencies: Once? Twice? Third Times the Charm?

Hooker Tendencies.

yup. I said it. yup I got them.

you see:
I've been working on a crochet project...for weeks.
Many weeks - possibly a month. Maybe more.

and I probably only have about 20-25 rows done -- and that's not a lot for a project that I've been working on for such a long time (especially since I've managed to do a row or two consistently every day).

I have chained, I have double crocheted, I have slipped stitched, chained some more and double stitched again. And this is what I got:

Then. I decided I didn't like it.
So I undid the whole thing.

and started over again.

I chained, double crocheted, slipped stitched and doubled crochet my way to this:

I liked it at first. Then I decided I didn't like my color pattern.
So guess what?
I undid this one too.

Hooker Tendencies you see?! 

So third time's where I am:

I'm much happier with this!
Besides - if I undo this and start again for a fourth time I'm going to lose my mind!

Soooo...what do you think?
Hooker Tendencies or am I just plain cray-cray?

I'm LOVING that I got to do a Guest Blog Post for DC Wine Week! I wrote about Vineyard Hopping in Virginia. Wanna read it? You can check it out HERE

I'm LOVING that I've finally settled on a crochet project. I made something, took it apart. Made something else and took THAT apart. And you thought the 3rd time's the charm -- nope. I took that a part too. Now. Fourth time around I think I like what I'm making. I'll share pics next week.

Teaser Tuesday::: Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.

"I learned an important lesson during my third-grade year: Avoid direct contact with any part of your body you can hide something in, and stay away from Siamese people-and Siamese cats, for that matter."

This is my second Chelsea Handler book I've managed to get my hands on and I'm already cracking up!

Illuminate - FREE Libboo Copy Available

Hi Again!

I have two copies of this book available to you for free...if you want it!
Here's what it's all about:

When ambitious and brainy Haven lands an internship and moves to the city to chase her dreams, mysterious things start to happen, and a group of gorgeous and shockingly young-looking coworkers seem to be at the root of it. When she uncovers their evil agenda, she must figure out how to halt their malicious plan and save prom night!


Follow this link (it is not a virus or anything gross like that):

The only thing is you have to sign up with Libboo (which is what I did to get this free book -- and I'm still alive!).

The link will only work twice so first come, first serve!

Happy Monday!

I'm LOVING how much FREE information is out there! I mean the world wide web is an incredible thing (do people still call it the "world wide web"? I mean do you still surf the web?! or am I alone in this? With my floppy disc and Oregon Trail playing?!).

I'm LOVING how I pulled a muscle in my butt {running} and I'm REALLY really trying to walk like it doesn't hurt.

I'm LOVING how much my currently read is making me laugh - out loud! 

I'm LOVING cheddar jalapeno cheetos. So dang good!

Teaser Tuesday -- My Horizontal Life

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.

 My tease this week is from:
"Seeing your mother naked and jumping from one side of a king-sized bed to the other with a nurse's hat on while your father, who is also naked, is chasing her with a bandanna around his neck, is reason to put your self up for adoption."

I'm two pages in and I'm already cracking up!
Have you read this? Or any Chelsea Handler? 
I've never watched her show but anytime I see her on anything she cracks me up.
I need to watch her show. I think I'm really going to enjoy this read.

Oh - and sidebar. Last week I did a tease to Gone Girl.
Thanks to all the feedback I am going to read it.
I'm patron number 1156 on the waiting list at the library.

Musing Mondays

This week’s musing asks… What distracts you when you really “should be reading”? ;)

oh, The old boob-tube gets me every time.
Especially this time of year when all the good shows are starting up again for the season. Like last night Once Upon a Time, Revenge AND 666 Park Avenue kept me glued to the television. I think all day yesterday I only read page. If that.

I have no willpower to keep focused on a book when the tv is on.

What about you? What distracts you when you really should be reading?
