Celebrate the Small Things - Air Conditioning Edition

Hi, everyone!  Greetings from Texas, where the temperatures are only getting hotter.  According to the local weatherpeople, we still haven't hit triple-digits yet, but it's only a matter of time.  Remind me again why we live in Texas in the summer?!

This week, I'm celebrating a few things.  I got the cover for my November release, and I just love it!  Let's take a look, shall we?

Hello, my pretty!
This weekend also marks an experiment. Mister is going to take a night off on Saturday and go hang out with some friends. My Mom will come over, and we're going to rent some movies and hang out with Little Roo.  Then on Sunday, it's my turn for some R&R.  I'm debating on what I want to do. Spend the afternoon writing?  Go see a movie?  Dive into a book?  So many choices, but let's be real--I will probably wind up sleeping :)

What are you up to this weekend?

If you've been reading my blog, you know that Fridays are reserved for a post where I celebrate the little things that have happened during the week. This is a blog hop created by Vikki and now hosted by Lexa Cain, and it's one of my favorite blogging things to do.  I encourage you to check out her blog and the full list of participants, because who doesn't love reading about good things?

Celebrate the Small Things - 3 day weekend and Camp edition!


Hello, everyone!  How was your week?  Anything exciting going on in your part of the world?

This week, I'm celebrating the start of Camp NaNoWriMo.  For those of you who don't know, Novembers are deemed National Novel Writing Month, where participants aim to write 50,000 words during the month.  The idea is to turn off your inner editor and WRITE.  It's so much fun, they also have camp sessions during April and July where you get to set your own word count goal.  It's a really enjoyable event, mainly because of the air of excitement that surrounds the whole thing.  If you're also camping this month, I hope you'll look me up--my user name is Lara Lacombe :)

I'm also happy to report that Mister has the day off tomorrow, in celebration of July 4th.  We don't have plans to go anywhere to watch the fireworks (too many bugs and way too hot for Baby Girl), but he definitely wants to fire up the grill.

What are your plans for the weekend?  For US readers, do you have any plans to celebrate the 4th?

Support the Troops Auction!


Hi everyone!  I'm popping in to let you know about the Support the Troops Auction, being hosted by Herding Cats, Burning Soup.  She volunteers her time with the USO, and all proceeds from the auction go to benefit the troops.

There's a lot of great stuff up for grabs.  I've donated a signed set of my books (Deadly Contact, Fatal Fallout, Lethal Lies, and Killer Exposure) along with a $10 Amazon gift card.  Check it out!

The auction runs until July 3 at 9 pm, so you have plenty of time to take a look!  I hope you'll participate! :)

Celebrate the Small Things - Writing edition


Hi everyone!  How was your week?  I'm happy to report that Baby Girl and I (and Mister, of course) are still here :)  We've got something resembling a routine started and while we've had a few rough days, for the most part, things have been going well.  Major thanks go to my Mom, who has been an irreplaceable help.  Thank also to you all for the kind words and well wishes--we really appreciate it!

Fortunately, I have a lot to celebrate this week!  Tonight, my Mom is going to watch Baby Girl for a couple of hours so Mister and I can have a 'date.'  I think we're going to grab a quick bite to eat and pick up some diapers.  It's a far cry from a movie or a show, but we're just as excited about it. Funny how your perspective can change so quickly, isn't it?

In other news, I'm hard at work on my book for the Colton series, coming next year from Harlequin Romantic Suspense.  I was smart enough to write a pretty detailed outline before Baby Girl was born, so it's making my job a lot easier now that I'm sleep-deprived. And in even better news, I'm thrilled to report that I just signed a new 3-book contract with Harlequin Romantic Suspense!  I'm not sure when the books will be released, but I'll let you know as soon as I find out!

I hope you all have had a great week!  What are you up to this weekend?

Celebrate the Small Things - Baby Girl edition!


She's here!  Baby Girl was born Tuesday, June 9 at 6 pm.  We've been home almost a week and are slowly figuring out a routine.  Mister had to go back to work, but fortunately my mom is very close and has been so much help.

My brother is arriving tomorrow to meet his niece.  He's only going to be here for a few hours, but I'm excited for him to meet our newest addition :)

Celebrate the Small Things - Last weekend edition...


As I write this, Mister and I are staring down the barrel of our last child-free weekend.  It's amazing to think that in a couple of days the baby will be here, and other people can start carrying her around ;)

So what's on deck for this foot-loose and fancy-free couple?  Well, not much.  We're planning on sleeping in, going to the grocery store, and hopefully going to see a couple of movies.  After all, there's only so much excitement I can take at this point.  I must say, pregnancy has given me a new appreciation of the laws of inertia--once I start to do something, be it walking, or sitting, or just standing, I'm okay.  It's just the transitions that are tough. Damn Newton and those outside forces!

In other news, I have some exciting bits to share with you on the writing front.  I'm not ready to reveal all yet, but stay tuned! :)

I hope you all have a good weekend!  What's going on in your part of the world?
