Okay, so I admit it. I went in Barnes & Noble last night and came out with these two lovely and gorgeous books. Seriously! Aren't those covers awesome?! You know you think so too. ;P
I knew I wanted Once Upon a Prince and that I'd get it someday soon, I just wasn't sure when. I don't know much about Gone South other than Kellie loved it. I even entered a giveaway for one of the books, but I just couldn't pass them up! It simply was not humanly possible I tell you. I actually hadn't been in a B&N in ages. When I stepped inside, it felt just like home. Ever happen to you? Bookstores just have this certain feel about them, don't they? :)
Regardless, when I saw each book sitting on its respective shelf, I couldn't stop my hand from reaching out and grabbing them up. A small trek to the cash register (and a lighter purse on my shoulder) later, they were mine. MINE! My precious! Okay, so I'm not that obsessed with them. Really! But I'm pretty positive I can safely say that I'll be doing some reading this weekend. Hooray for reading! What I'm not looking so forward to is the fact that my Friday at work is going to be so slow. When I really want to be home, I know my work day is probably guaranteed to make me (extra) crazy. Isn't that how it always works? *big sigh*
Anyway! Next pointless topic. If you're on Pinterest, you may have seen this pin floating around.
A friend and I were trying it out the other day and this is what I figured out about myself:
- Peter, with all his charming personality and engaging wit, is not the best housekeeper. So evidently I'm a great conversationalist (who knew?) but I'm terrible at housekeeping (most definitely). And I have no idea about the Peter part.
- The meal they call dinner here is not the simple lunch of sushi or ham on wheat I'm partial to back home. Sushi is a simple lunch (??? I've never actually tried it) and I must like to eat (TRUTH).
- There are certain irremovable barriers between myself and them, and I must accept them. Now I go from being engaging to having barriers?
Happy Friday y'all!
