Remember That Time in 2012 When I...

1. Jumped out of an airplane.



2. Made a "dancing in public"  video and put it on the web.



3. Wrote a few poems.  

4. Read ALL THE BOOKS!


5. Attended three weddings and wore the SAME dress to all three because Bria Quinlan double dog dared me.




6. Went to my first book signing/book festival and met a bunch of fabulous authors.

 






















 














7. Had dinner on a farm with a potato chip eating rooster. (Btw, Napoleon, the chickens DO have large talons.)




8. Bought (and wore) combat boots.



9. Saw my favorite band Switchfoot play live twice and even got meet them!



10. Went to a land where everything is made of Lego's and behaved like a 5 year old.


















 
11. Made out with a llama? OK, not really but our conversation did go a little something like this...
Me: You're cute but if you spit at me, we will not be friends, m'kay? 
Llama: Let me love you. (By which he really meant) "Lady, if you aren't here to feed me, you better step away from my cage, m'kay?"








12. Did NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) but didn't tell anyone and ended up with a WIP? (Work In Progress). *sheepish grin*   PS, don't anybody get excited about this one because I'm almost positive that 97K sucks.

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into …
