I hope you had a splendid weekend and Valentine’s Day full of love. And if not love, then at least full of chocolate. Since my boyfriend, Richard Armitage, is out of town shooting a movie or something, my mom and I had a Valentine’s Mother Daughter Date to the bowling alley! It was great.
It also got me thinking that a bowling alley would be a REALLY cool place for a book release party! I’m seriously considering it for the release of Boy Band. But then, I also have a lot of cool ideas, decoration-wise, for the party, so it probably won’t happen in a bowling alley. But still.
Sunday, I celebrated Galentine’s Day with my BFF, Jessica. We went out to dinner and then went back to her place to watch a Disney movie and drink wine. Unfortunately, she does not have very good wine openers so I ended up prying the cork out with steak knives.
The lesson to be learned here? Nothing stands between an Episcopalian and wine. Nothing.
Yesterday was a blast. My other BFF, Hannah, flew in from California to visit her parents and their new farmhouse. I hopped in my car and drove the two hours to see them. I love being out in the country. It’s so free and open. No traffic. No big buildings. Just Earth and sky and road. Love!
Anyway, their land is amazing. It reminded me of how much I want a getaway cabin one day.
I love Texas. But you know what I love more than Texas? This puppy.
His name is Krager and he is the cutest, sweetest, most lovable dog you will ever meet. I wanted to steal him so bad. Sadly, my kitty would NOT approve. She likes being an only child and would probably try to banish me or something if I brought home a dog. Otherwise, Krager would have been mine. I would have found a way.
So, now that my weekend of adventures is over, it’s back to work. And I do mean WORK. I HAVE to get these revisions finished ASAP. I’m also in the process of helping my friend Paula format her first children’s book, which will be released very soon.

Tomorrow is also the first day of Lent. I’m aiming to make some big changes in my life. We’ll see if that actually happens. But I’m going to try! But more on that tomorrow.
I hope you all have a fantastic Shrove Tuesday / Mardi Gras. Go eat some pancakes!
