coming soon to my bookshelf

Available on October 12th.  I’ve pre-ordered.   I consider it countdown worthy… fifty-six days (or so) until she finds her way to my house.  Here.

take me home, country roads

That there is a BIG book.  A BIG and AWESOME book.  I liked it so much that I put on my “I’m a nerd” hat and photographed it for you, it was too big for my scanner.  It was on my Amazon wish list, and I guess being the good wife that I am I sent it to my husband before Christmas.  I’m a hint dropper.  You gotta be, otherwise you end up like my sister with a pressure cooker under your Christmas tree.  Good thing she loves to cook under pressure.  (My brother-in-law laughs at himself, so it’s okay that I poke fun.)

Rooms To Inspire In The Country, by Annie Kelly, photographed by Tim Street-Porter.  Add it to your collection, you won’t regret it.

In other random news.  I recently bought a $40 wonderbar of soap for my face!?  It’s true.  I had a panic attack pressing the “confirm order” button, but did it anyway.  It better work wonders.  A review is on the horizon.  When I opened the package yesterday I almost died, I mean who knows what 25g is (drug dealers?*), it’s like a hotel travel size bar… further causing speculation.  Well, last night was my first experience with it, and let me tell you, my face felt amazing after using it.  Now fingers crossed it works miracles.  Court reviewed it here, Jenny reviewed it here.  I’ll review it when I see wonders worked.  It’s a big jump for me from the St. Ives Green Tea Cleanser $4.00 stuff.  Any wonderbar users out there want to chime in?

*- raise your hand if you watch Breaking Bad on Sunday nights on AMC.  I’m addicted.

it’s good y’all

Mine was just delivered… and while I have many other important things to accomplish I put everything on hold AND devoured it. 
Order it, you’ll love it.
