Win a copy of Meridian by Amber Kizer

There is a really great contest going on over at Bloody Bookaholic right now until August 24th.

The prize is one copy of Meridian by Amber Kizer!


Half-human, half-angel, Meridian Sozu has a dark responsibility.

Sixteen-year-old Meridian has been surrounded by death ever since she can remember. As a child, insects, mice, and salamanders would burrow into her bedclothes and die. At her elementary school, she was blamed for a classmate’s tragic accident. And on her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family home—and Meridian’s body explodes in pain.

Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she’s a danger to her family and hustled off to her great-aunt’s house in Revelation, Colorado. It’s there that she learns that she is a Fenestra—the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a band of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos.

Head on over to Bloody Bookaholic to enter and good luck!

Do my teeth have taste buds?

River (3 yrs. old) was sitting on the couch a few minutes ago, playing with his tongue. He informed me that it is made up of taste buds. "Yes it is", I said. He thought about this for a moment and said, " Thats why my free chocolate tastes good mommy!"

We have been signing up for free chocolate from Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act every Friday. He gets very excited when the coupon arrives in the mail. He really loves going on a wagon ride with daddy to redeem his coupon for yummy candy bars. Today he chose skittles. Regardless of the fact that we have a huge bag of Skittles in the cabinet. They are one of his favorite candies, so this is what he got.

Anyhoo.....I told him this was true.."That is why your free chocolate tastes so good!"

After a few seconds, he proceeded to ask me, "Mommy? Do my teeth have taste buds?" "No." I tell him. "Your teeth do not have taste buds." "Whats on them?" he asks. "What do you mean?", I reply. "Well, if theres no taste buds on my teeth then what is that?" he says, jabbing at his mouth.

"Your teeth are made up of calcium....calcium, phosphorous and mineral salts. The majority of a tooth is made up of dentine. The hard, shiny layer you scrub when you brush your teeth is called enamel."

He points to his teeth and asks, " Animals? Are they made of animals mommy"??
I got a pretty hefty chuckle out of that one! He's so cute! So curious at his age. I will surely miss these days of sweet innocence when they're gone! Golly, I just love him to pieces! :))

Finally I'm A Poster Girl !!!

Well, I guess it's time to write the ever so intimidating, "First Post". I have created this blog in hopes of jotting down a few things that happen in my day to day life. I think I will also include posts about contests and giveaways that are going on around the blogosphere. Maybe some recipes here and there, and whatever else I see fit at the time.

This is my first blog, and I am very unpredictable, even to myself. I cannot tell you if I will write once a month, daily, thrice daily.....we will all just have to wait and see.
