Bloggers 'n' Books

You guys remember back here when I said that I was part of the

Well my books came in!!!

cute little box from Jessica @ DuckDuckCow

She even wrapped them!

She also added cute little notes at the bottom!

I'm so totally excited to read these books! I'm going to have to stop watching movies at night now!

A Book I Love: PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White

"This one is funny and full of teen angst." 

Who doesn't love some teen angst. I know I sure do. Hello I watched the whole Gossip Girl series. I'm interested in it and can't wait to read.

A Book You Might Like: Soulless by Gail Carriger

"Pretty sure you will like it since I saw it on your "to-read" list! =)"

This one was recommended to me by my friend Cathy over at Exploring Your Depths years ago. I've just never have gotten around to reading it. Now that I have a copy I will have to push it up on the list!

A Book From Your Wishlist: Chicks Dig Time Lords edited by Lynne M. Thomas and Tara O'Shea

"I just might have to read this one too!"

I'm way excited about this book. I LOVE Doctor Who. This book has been on my wish-list for YEARS, and I've just never gotten around to purchasing it. Now I have it I will read it right away!

Thank you to Miss Angie and Goddess Beth over at Chaotic Goddess Swaps for sponsoring this wonderful swap. This is one I will be doing again. LOVED IT! It was so much fun shopping for books for Margie over at Bumbles and Fairy Tales. Go over and take a look at what I got for her (hopefully they will be there in the next day or two) and take a look at her beautiful site! I'm totally in love with it.

But you know... it is even more fun getting the surprise in the mail!

For a few years now I've been trying to pick a word for the year and live by that. 

This year I've chosen

stolen from

I've been thinking about it a lot the last few days. After Mom told me her word is Joy, and a friend of mine mentioned hers was Determination, I knew that Gratitude was going to be mine for the year.

a realization...

I just realized that this was my blog, and that I could post whatever I wanted. Even if it is something I've found off the internet. I'll make sure to give credit where credit is due of course.

I am going to start posting stuff that I've found that make me happy, 
make me fall in love, make me cry, make me giggle, 
or is just the best thing i've ever seen!

I'm not sure where I found this. I know it was facebook, but where it was from you've got me.

Love ya'll -

Goals in the New Year...

I don't do resolutions anymore. Resolutions are just good for breaking. I am always gun-ho going in the first few weeks, and then everything just goes to poop.

I've decided that I'm going to go back to what I've done in the past. 
I'm going to set monthly goals and see what I can get accomplished from month to month. 
There are going to be some things that I want to do for the entire year, but I just want to work month to month to see if I can even continue thru the year.

January Goals

1- Continue with Project 365. Take a picture a day for the entire year. Just take my time and get to the end of January!

2- Write in my Q&A a day journal. It's easy to do. Just answer the question, and get thru January!

3- Participate in Three 31's Put Pen to Paper blog day. Looks like something fun.

4- REHAB - get back to rehab. I've been really lax on this, and I HAVE to do this. 

5- Blog at least once a week on this blog, and over on Arizona Sunshine Girls

6- Make at least 3 posts on AzSG's Facebook every day!

I think that these look like good goals for the month. As you can see a few of them are one's i want to keep going thru the year. Actually almost all of them are. But putting them as a monthly goal will be good for me I think.

I hope that you all have some good goals for the new year, and that you can feel accomplishment in what you're doing.

after writing up this lovely post I went to read the blogs I read every day, and lo and behold I found that there is a monthly goal linky.... woohoo!
