Gift Guide — Books

book collage

One present I always love is books.  Even though I own an E Reader, there is really nothing like a brand new book with crisp pages and  new book smell.   Yes, I sniff my books.  Is that weird?   Anyways, if you're not a reader, it can be really hard to buy gifts for someone who is.  Obviously, I recommend getting some info on … [Read more...]

  It's Cocktail Friday, yo!!   Not only is it Cocktail Friday, but it's opening day of Breaking Dawn in theaters!!   I realize that some of you are bleary eyed and grumpy due to lack of sleep--because you spent your night/morning at the midnight showing last night.  And although I appreciate your enthusiasm, I am sort … [Read more...]

Now since Twilight and vampires are the theme here this week, but the Twilight series maybe a touch, errr... inappropriate for the younger kids, how about we give them some fun alternatives?

You don't need to wear a cape and fangs to pull … [Read more...]

Make them and wear them proudly... Ok, Team Edward. All you need is a shirt, some iron-on letters (one set plain, one set sparkly), an … [Read more...]

Vampire Books!


Let's face it.  Regardless of HOW you may feel about it, Vampires are in style.   I, for one, am pro Vampire.  But if I were to meet one in real life, I would probably change my mind pretty darn quickly.  You know...blood breath and fangs and all that jazz.   Anyways, in honor of Breaking Dawn's big debut this week, I thought … [Read more...]

Book Giveaway–Sookie Stackhouse Boxed Set (True Blood) – Contest Closed


I love to read.   And one of my favorite series is the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) set.  They're nothing life changing, but they're fast and easy to read, and a fun combination of scary, far fetched, and sexy.   If you've watched the show on HBO and never read the books, you're missing out on a lot.  The TV show often goes … [Read more...]
