Celebrate the Small Things - Surprise visit edition

Lots to celebrate this week!

For starters, my brother is coming into town for a few days!  His old college roommate just won a Grammy (yes, really) and my brother is going to help him celebrate!  While he'll be spending most of the weekend with his friend, I hope I'll get to see him for a meal or two over the course of his visit.

My Gentleman Friend got some good news on the career front, having landed a new position in his company!  It's actually a promotion, and he'll be getting to work with some programs that he's really interested in.  I'm very happy and proud, and I hope he enjoys his new job!
As for me, I'm celebrating the fact that I'm wrapping things up with Book 3.  Alex and Jillian are so much fun to write, and I can't wait until December when you guys will get to meet them!

What about you?  How was your week?

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 hosted by VikLit, 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?


  1. It's almost always good to see family. Congrats to your boyfriend and on your book!

  2. Have fun with your brother. I'll be spending part of the weekend with my brother, too.

    And congratulations to your Gentleman Friend.

  3. How awesome for the men in your life! lol
    Always great to spend time with family so have a great time with your brother, and in turn hope he as a great time with his Grammy winning friend (OMG!)

    Congratulations to your gentleman friend, woohoo :D

  4. Awesome news with your brother's friend winning the Grammy's. I hope you get to see a bit of your brother. Grats to your gentleman friend too! And yay for wrapping up Book 3!

  5. Wow, how exciting to win a grammy. Congrats to your gentleman friend!!

  6. Thanks, everyone! My Gentleman Friend appreciates your well-wishes :)

  7. Yay for visiting brothers, Grammys, and promotions! All those definitely add up to a good time! It's wonderful you're writing a series with the same characters. I feel so sorry for those authors whose publishers ask them to write other books "in the same world," but to choose new characters. How disloyal. But I guess it would be cool to have a publisher interested in seeing anything more... Have a great weekend, Lara! :)

  8. Congrats to your brother's old roommate, your gentleman friend and to book three! Sounds like a great week.

  9. Congratulations, sounds like a great week!
