Reasons to Celebrate!

Tons of happy things to post about today! First of all, thank you to the awesome gapyeargirl at The Book Bundle for this Super Comments Award! I'm tickled, and if you haven't checked out The Book Bundle lately, they have an all new, super fun look. 

I pass this along to the cool people who comment here on the Coaster, and to anyone else who wants this award (or who I forgot to add!!) just toss in a comment today and it's yours :) I release you from any link-posting responsibilities, just accept with my thanks for being a "super commenter!"

Some of The Super Commenters On My Blog:

In other news, I got another twenty pages written in my wip, and considering I'm ear-deep in scout paperwork for the now infamous campout, I think that's something to celebrate. Another thing that makes me happy, today is the first day of October and all three of my kids are October babies (don't ask me how that happened... I Do.Not.Know.) 

Lastly, if you're into contests/giveaways you'll be happy to hear that The Book Bundle has one for a book called VampyreLiterary Girls have one (that ends today!) for a book called The Maze Runner, and Tales of Whimsy has one for a book I really want called You Had Me At Halo. I'm sure there are loads more, but those are some I ran across this week :) 

What about you? Maybe good vibes beget good things, so share anything exciting that happened or even something unexciting that just made you smile. Let's hear it :)


  1. Aww thanks for the award! =]

    This is going to sound SOO lame, but I FINISHED ALL OF MY HOMEWORK FOR THE WHOLE WEEKEND!!!!!!!


    I'm hoping to spend the rest of the weekend watching movies, reading and of course, WRITING!

    I'm with Mary. I'm wondering how you can put things on both sides of your blog too.

  13. Thank you!!! My good news? I got an award from you. I also had a fantastic week end of fishing, soaking in hot mineral pools, and playing Scrabble. Who could ask for anything more?

  14. Hi! I'm back from a weekend in the Great Outdoors :)

    Mary-- I straightened out my inbox and found your email. I can't wait to read The Maze Runner; I keep hearing good things about it :) Also, I see from your new blog that you figured out the three column thing. If anyone wants to know, I followed the steps on The Cutest Blog on the Block (I will find the link later if I can!)

    C-- Awww thanks! I will head over to your blog and get my award asap :)

    Wendy-- I did have a good weekend. Surprisingly, but I think once a year will be enough for me :)

    Bethany-- Wow, it sounds like you had a fine time this weekend! I've never been fishing but mineral pools and Scrabble are right up my alley. :)
