  1. Ha! I love your answer to where you'd rather be right now. Me, too, sista!!

    I just started reading the His Dark Materials series this week. Even though I'm only on chapter 3, I have already put in my reservation for our library's copy of the next book because I have a feeling I'm going to fly through this one!

  2. Yay! I'm glad you did it too. You have visited and lived in such cool places! I'm really enjoying Girlfriends Guide To Divorce. I love that every mom has some version of "don't fight with your sibling" on the list. Haha!
