A Week of Weight Loss

A Week of Weight Loss My first week of Twitloss… Here it is Tuesday afternoon and I’ve already re-writing this post 3 times in my head. The first time was immediately after my weigh-in on Monday. The next time was last night when I went out to dinner and then today, after I’ve had some time to reflect. I think the fact that I have now mentally written 3 blogs about one week of weight-loss demonstrates what an up-and-down time I’m having with my current weight-loss journey. I started my weight-loss journey over 13 years ago. It’s funny that my starting weight 13 years ago was roughly 5 pounds over my current goal weight....

Born of the Big Screen 80’s Action Adventure…

Born of the Big Screen 80’s Action Adventure… I recently picked up Sherrilyn Kenyon’s League Series, which I highlighted a few weeks ago in my blog. Today, I’m reviewing the first book in this series, Born of Night. From Ms. Kenyon’s website: Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades was born and trained to slaughter. Refusing to be a pawn, he turned his back on the League and has been hunted by them ever since. Though many have tried, none can kill him. Now his assignment is to protect Kiara Zamir, a woman whose father’s political alliance has made her a target. She wants nothing to do with politics, yet she is forced to submit to protection or die. And...

Kissed by an Angel

Kissed by an Angel       I want to start out by stating for the record: I *heart* Nalini Singh and her books! She is an amazing author. Her Psy/Changling series is in my Top 3 favorites and a must read/buy set. So just over a year ago when I saw that she was releasing a new series, I figured it had to be good. I was on vacation and found the closest bookstore. When I got there and the book wasn’t on the shelf, I made them pull Angels’ Blood from the back. I was NOT disappointed! I devoured the book in a day and from that point on was hooked!...

Not that there is anything wrong with that…

Not that there is anything wrong with that… Recently I won a free ebook from KC at SmokingHotBooks. She blogged over the first 2 weeks in February with the theme “14 days of man love.” Although I had never read any m/m (male/male) romance books, I figured I would enter the contest to win a free book. When KC notified me that I WON, I was so excited. But then I thought “What will I read?” She has been going on and on about all these great m/m books she reads, but to be honest, they didn’t sound all that appealing to me. Not to mention I am a HUGE paranormal fan – I just don’t read...

I Wish…

I Wish… I got a wonderful birthday gift yesterday. My AMAZING, dear friend and follow book lover sent me a $30 gift certificate for Amazon. She knows I got a Kindle for my birthday (a couple months early *snicker*) and she wanted me to pick up something off my wish list. I *heart* her. She is a great lady, isn’t she? So that got me thinking about which books are my top priority. My friends on Twitter have given me several suggestions, and in some cases, ultimatums (yes, Queen B… I’m talking about you!) I thought about it and here are the top 3 series on my wish list: First up…...

Celebrating 4 weeks!

Celebrating 4 weeks! Yea Me! More fun changes at my little fledgling blog. It’s now 4 weeks old! And to celebrate I’m adding a brand new header and a blog button!! First the header: designed by my friend, Sagi at Sagi’s Randomness. She worked really hard to create something that I love. Thank you, my friend! It is wonderful!! Sagi was able to capture my “look” by replicating the colors I chose for my blog and adding some of my favorite daisies to match those on my blog. The swirls of color along the edge feel so lovely and airy to me. I just adore my new header! Next up, the button:...

BUT I did want to get at least one item taken care of… I received my SECOND (& third, but that’s another day) Blogging Award! This one is from my dear friend and another great supporter, Belinda from Hanging with Bells. THANK YOU my Bellie! She passed on to me the WHO LOVES...

She has been so supportive of me and the start of my very own blog. Thank you, Janna! (You can also find Janna on Twitter.) So without further wait…. Here is my award: The Sugar Doll Award. I am supposed to list 10 things about myself, then pass the award on to some other bloggers. Since I am still learning my way around the blogging world, I’m going to save passing the award on to someone else for just a little while. Okay, here it goes: I am...

The Evolution of Twimom…

The Evolution of Twimom… I’m so excited! My little blog is 3 weeks old. I’m finding that I am enjoying it much more than I thought. I just wish I was HTML savvy and could find my way around PhotoShop. So to celebrate my blog I’ve updated its look. I went from the Google Standard layout to a layout with a little pizazz (thanks to the Cutest Blog on the Block)! In addition, I am going to share the story of how Twimom227 come to be. My story is probably similar to a lot of you out there. Other than email, I didn’t use the “social Internet” at all before 2008. Then, in...

What’s In Your Closet?

What’s In Your Closet? Last week I blogged about the books that were ready and waiting for me to read on my Kindle. Those books are on hold while I finish my paperback To Be Read (TBR) pile. And that pile is getting smaller. I keep MY books (aka smut books) in my closet. It started last year as a half a shelf. My first 2 series were Black Dagger Brotherhood by J. R. Ward and the Psy/Changling series by Nalini Singh. Both were only a few books (5-6) and so I didn’t have to move much around to accommodate. In addition, I had a few Buffy Season 8 and Angel After the...
