Meeting friends and planning a party | Weekly Snapshot

Hello, fellow readers and bloggers! Hope you've got a good book that you are lost in currently. Life This was a much needed slower week after weeks of the other kind. Work was busy until Wednesday and then it got quieter, so that helped me have the mental energy to do other things.  The girl's birthday is in 10 days (yes, both my daughter and I share the same birthday month) and we are planning a small party during the following weekend. Guess what theme she wants? Yes, princesses. I wish little girls aspired for more than most of the pink stuff that's paraded at them in the stores. Anyways, I'll be doing some planning for this and trying to pull it together.  There's been another big thing going on for the past couple of months.

Armchair BEA: Wrap-Up, Thank You and Why I Loved Armchair BEA


And what a fun week it was! Armchair BEA was a huge success to me! I can particularly attest to that by saying that I didn't do much work at all this week - at least for the first four days. By Friday, I was slightly panicky, and because of my desire to end the week with a feel-good sentiment, I managed to work seriously yesterday. With my Tweetdeck tuned to #BookBloggerCon.

If you haven't checked out my posts yet, here are the links.

  • Gave me a chance to be a part of BEA and BBC from my comfy chair.
  • Introduced me to a whole new set of truly wonderful bloggers, some who I have never come across before, and can't believe I missed them for so long!
  • Spread a lot of blogger love.
  • Gave us a chance to connect more as friends than bloggers during the Twitter party on Thursday.
  • Gave me an excuse not to work this week.
  • Gave me an excuse not to write reviews this week.
  • Won me 9 wonderful books, without even going to BEA.
  • Introduced me to a ten-year old blogger!

*Applause, Applause*

I wasn't able to go to BEA and BBC so I was really looking forward to Armchair BEA. Then I discovered I was too busy to even do that. So I'm going to spend my extra day off catching up on all the fun you all had!

I have to say I am envious regarding the BEA...still being a semi newbie in this world of book blogging, I didn't know enough about it or where to sign up. Hoping next time, I will particpate. Note to self and other bloggers...please remind me and lead me in the right direction lol.
