Celebrate the Small Things - Social Butterfly edition


Happy Friday everyone!  Hope you've all had a good week!

I have lots of plans this weekend, which is a bit outside the norm.  Usually we have lazy days, but that won't be the case this week.

On Saturday, I'm participating in the North Richland Hills Library's first ever Local Author Festival as part of their Year of the Book celebrations!  I'll have a table set up in the lobby to sell books, and I'll be speaking from 12-12:10 pm. If you are in the DFW area, please consider stopping by--there's loads of other authors participating, and the library has some really fun events planned!

On Sunday and Monday, I'll be blogging at Just Romantic Suspense and on Monday I'll also be over at Get Lost in a Story.  I'm giving away copies of Dr. Do or Die at both sites, so please stop by for your chance to win!

What are your weekend plans?  I hope you have fun, whatever you wind up doing!

Celebrate the Small Things - New Year edition


Happy New Year!  How has the first week of 2017 treated you?  Well, I hope.

Do any of you make resolutions?  I made a couple of goals for the new year, and I'd love to hear about yours!

One of my goals is to cook more meals at home.  I generally cook 3-4 dinners a week, but some weeks are busier than others and we wind up doing take-out or ordering pizza more often than I'd like.  It gets expensive, and it's not the healthiest for us.  So this year, I'm going to try to cook 6-7 dinners per week, and to eat more lunches at home as well.  I know we're only 6 days in, but so far, I've cooked all week.  I drew up a meal plan on Saturday, which made my grocery shopping a lot easier.  It's also nice to know what I'm going to make each day, as it takes a little pressure off when it's time to start preparing dinner.  I was already a big fan of using my crock pot, and I know it's really going to get a workout this year!

It's very cold here (for Texas, that is), and it's supposed to stay that way all weekend.  Mister and I have started watching the new Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, so I imagine we'll spend some time on the couch binge watching the second and third seasons (yay for library DVD check-out!).  I know we're late to the party on that show, but we're really enjoying it and it's nice to have a pile of episodes to watch so we don't have to wait for new ones to come out.

What are your weekend plans?  Anything exciting going on in your neck of the woods?  Thanks to everyone for your patience with my blogging hiatus--posting more frequently is another of my goals, so I hope you'll keep me accountable!

Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and productive 2017!

Mister and I are headed to the movies today, for the first time in what feels like forever.  We're off to see Assassin's Creed, because he likes video games and I like Michael Fassbender :)  Hopefully it will be entertaining, but if not, I love me some movie theater popcorn, so I'll be happy either way.

How are you celebrating the new year?  If you're looking for something to read, my latest book, Dr. Do or Die releases in digital format today!  I hope you'll check it out!

Two doctors are on thin ice as they race to save the world from a deadly disease. 
Epidemic researcher Dr. Avery Thatcher has studied countless illnesses…but nothing prepares her for what she finds at a remote Antarctic base: the man she never wanted to see again and a mysterious ailment ravaging inhabitants. Avery will do whatever it takes to discover the illness's cause, and she vows to keep her heartbreaking history with Dr. Grant Jones in the past—even if reignited passion brings them dangerously close. 
For Grant, ending this outbreak and regaining Avery's trust are vital. As their hunt to contain a lethal pathogen escalates, he'll put everything on the line to avert disaster. But will another insidious threat stop them both cold?

Celebrate the Small Things - Patience edition


Hi everyone!  I'm writing to apologize for missing the last few weeks of this hop, and to ask for your patience as I will probably be on hiatus a little bit longer.  Life is crazy right now, and unfortunately, blogging is kind of low on my to-do list.  Please bear with me!

Hope you're all doing well!  Enjoy your weekend!

Celebrate the Small Things - Fingers crossed edition


Happy Friday!  I hope you've all had a nice week.  We're keeping busy here, making slow but steady progress in packing (us) and writing (me).  I'm pleased to report we have an offer on our house! We responded with a counter-offer, so cross your fingers the potential buyers respond favorably!  I know I'll be on pins and needles until we hear back...

Any big weekend plans?  We have a birthday party to attend on Saturday--the little girl in question is very interested in science, and I'm excited to give her a couple of books and a dress with test tubes on it (it's cuter than it sounds, trust me!).  On Sunday, Mister and I are going to the symphony, which should be fun.

What's going on with you?  Let me know!

P.S. I'm also hosting some giveaways that run through the weekend!

Celebrate the Small Things - Reboot edition


Hello! I'm sorry I've been remiss in posting the last few Fridays--life's been busy. 

This week, I'm trying to look at my stressors in a different light. I have some deadlines fast approaching, but I am blessed because deadlines mean I have a contract. We're moving soon, but we are fortunate to have a lovely home, and we never have to worry about Little Roo not having a safe place to sleep. Sometimes I slip up and revert back to being stressed, but I'll keep working on it!

Today, Mom and I are going to our local library to see Susan Wiggs and get books signed. Should be fun. The rest of the weekend is all business--packing and writing, yippee!

What are you up to this weekend?

Celebrate the Small Things - Gardening edition


Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

I don't know about you, but I had a pretty decent week.  I managed to get a fair amount of work done, and I also took a night off and went to bed early so I could catch up on some sleep.  I had a nice swim date with a friend (which Little Roo enjoyed immensely) and it was good to catch up with my friend and her mom, even though I did get a little sunburned.

Mister and I have big plans this weekend.  Our side yard is in need of major attention, so we're going to spend Friday and Saturday evenings gardening. It will be hot, but it needs to be done.  Then we need to start packing...

What are you up to this weekend?  I hope you have something fun planned!
