Time to play catch-up

Hi!  So our friends left this morning and it's time to get back to our normal life.  We had such a great visit.  It consisted of:
1. Lots of beer and wine.
2. Dawn's homemade sticky buns...oh my...
3. Guitar Hero.
4. Pima Air and Space Museum.
5. Sonoran Dogs from El Guero Canelo.
6. Dogs being spoiled by their kids.
7. A visit to Tombstone for some awesome history.
8. Dulce de Leche fudge.
9. Caylan having some live-in friends for a few days.
10. Catching up with some of the best friends we have!

In some cool news, I was contacted through Good Reads* by one of my favorite authors, JA Konrath.  He writes a fantastic detective series that I love so much.  He sent an email and asked if I would review a book he collaborated on (written under the name Jack Kilborn).  He asked if I would read it and write a review on Amazon and Good Reads before the release date, Oct 19!  I was ecstatic! It's an ebook so I was able to put it on my Kindle. He sent it to me and I started it last night.  It's a horror book about vampires, so I'm expecting some scary stuff coming my way soon.  In light of the due date, I've had to put The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest on hold for a couple of weeks, since I'm only 25% through it.  *If anyone is on Good Reads and wants to be friends, my user name is Sarah Swann!

Finally, it's my birthday!  The big 3-2!  I'm planning to relax today and get some scrapbooking prep done.  I have a few little things to catch up on and I'm going to be applying to some Design Team calls, so I'll be getting those organized.  My husband is making dinner tonight and we'll be enjoying some lemon cake.  And I plan on putting a pedicure gift certificate to good use this weekend!
