Celebrate the Small Things - Recap edition


After taking the month of April off, I'm happy to be back and participating in the Celebrate the Small Things blog hop, hosted by VikLit.

This week, I'm celebrating the fact that I survived the A to Z blog challenge.  It was tough but fun, and I had a blast reading everyone's posts and responding to comments on my own blog.  I really enjoyed the experience, and I'll definitely sign up for next year's challenge!


I'm also celebrating playoff hockey.  Although my beloved Dallas Stars did not make the playoffs, my other team, the Washington Capitals, did. I'm watching their first game as I write this post, and so far, they're winning <knock on wood>.  If you've read my blog for very long, you know that Thomas, the hero of my second book, looks a lot like Brooks Laich.  I tell myself that watching the games counts as research. :)


Finally, I'm celebrating the fact that tonight, I'm going to see Iron Man 3!  Hooray for superhero movies!

What are you all celebrating this week?

  6. OHHH I want to see Iron Man 3 too! My husband and I usually wait until movies come into the cheap theater (usually $2.50 on a Saturday night) but this one might be good enough to splurge on!!

    And good luck to your team in the playoffs! Research is research :)
