Still Alive!

Pin It

Whew! It's been a crazy few days. Ho Ho came to the house and left some gifts for us all. I have to say, my husband totally surprised me.

What is that? It's an Aluratek Libre ebook reader. He's really good at finding me technology I've never heard of before. It doesn't do fancy stuff like the other ones do but I can read ebooks now. Yay!

In other book news, my brother got me Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and a Penguin Classics Edition of The Hound of the Baskervilles (the ones featured on Design Sponge).

My daughter did really well in the book department: Ivy and Bean, Babymouse (1-3), Coraline, Betsy-Tacy and Emmaline and the Bunny plus a few others I forgot.

I actually finished a book this week. So I'll be reviewing that shortly.

We had brunch for our family and it was a success. A success is when everyone has enough and we didn't run out of food.

Today we made some returns and I found a pair of nice jeans on sale. Plus I didn't kill anyone at the mall (husband and child included).

Tonight I plan on having a Bailey's and reading a lot.

BookBlips: vote it up!


  1. Sounds like a great holiday. Bailey's and reading - enjoy they evening!

  2. Let us know how you like your reader. I'm getting very tempted. Also, how do you have your Bailey's? I have a couple of mini bottles that I'm not sure what to do with. Email me if you don't want to post on here. Glad you had a nice holiday. Happy New Year!

  3. So I'm sitting here reading blogs drinking my hot cocoa with Bailey's carmel, and I come across a reference to Bailey's!!! Excellent.

  4. What an awesome husband! My boyfriend very wisely got me a giftcard so I could buy my own erader. Unfortunately, the one I want doesn't even ship til February. *sigh*

    Happy New Year!

  5. Congratulations on the e-Reader! How very, very cool! You'll have to let me know how you like it!

  6. Happy Holidays to you! Bailey's and reading....mmmmmm sounds perfect, doesn't it? Enjoy!!!

  7. Glad to hear Santa was good to you. I hope your daughter enjoys the Betsy-Tacy books as much as I did.
