The Friday FIve 9-30-11


Hi All – It’s the last day of September – this month went crazy fast, I feel like I missed the entire thing! I blame it on our insane schedule (and by “our” I mean my kids.) How has your week been? Let me know about your Friday Five in the comments! Here's what's been going on with me...


1. Happy New Year! To those who celebrate the Jewish New Year: L’Shana Tova! May you have a sweet new year filled with happiness, good health, and peace. As my parents say “all good things.”


2. Kindle. I usually don’t get excited over every little upgrade in technology, but I have been wanting a Kindle for a while now. I have the Kindle app on my phone, but its so small and a huge battery killer. Both my anniversary and birthday are coming up, and I’ve been dropping hints telling my husband I want one. So when news came on Wednesday of the new Kindle – well let’s just say, I went straight to the source and emailed my hubby the link. Thanks babe! It will hopefully be arriving in late November.

3. Play Ball! So the practices are all over and both my boys had their first games this week. My little guy had fun playing soccer (he may have scored a goal, just saying) and my teen started football without injury (In case you missed my football neurosis, you can catch up here.) No pressure, but college scholarships would be nice!

4. Blog Award.  In case you missed it last week – I have decided to incorporate the rules of the Versatile Blog Award I received a few weeks ago into my Friday Five (listing seven things you may not know about me and passing the award to fifteen blogs) one week at a time ... so as promised:

  •  7 things may not know about me - #2: I’m shamelessly addicted to Bravo TV (don’t judge.)
  •  Versatile Award blog of the week goes to: On the Border - a great blog about life on a ranch by mom and author Diane Stringham Tolley. Check it out and show her some love!




5. Book News. Today is the last day to get Nate Rocks the World for just $0.99 for your digital reader! This offer is available only through Smashwords and only with coupon code QH26Y. Then, for those who love a great giveaway, don’t forget about the giveaway at Just Children’s Books between now and October 2nd. Visit Just Children’s Books for a chance to win a beautiful bookcase filled with over fifteen books including a signed copy of Nate Rocks the World!

Hope everyone has a great weekend – thanks for checking in. See you next Friday... and hopefully sooner!

Karen
