What I Got Yesterday in the Mail

Do you know what those are?! First off, I won the Twilight DVD Give-Away from Becca at The Great Mediocre!! Can I tell you how excited I am? I haven't seen the movie since reading the books, and I'm dying to compare! Thanks, Becca!!

And secondly: My dear husband made my blog into a book for my Mother's Day present!! All 374 pages worth of my posting and your commenting are available to me in book form now! Yesterday Steve told me that I am now a published author. =) It is wonderful to look back through the past year and a half and read all of the memories. Thanks, dear friends, for being a part of those memories! And Steve, I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful I think you are. Thank you for being the best husband a woman could have, and for supporting me in all of the things that I love doing. You are the best!

Steve made my book by first going to Shared Book and paying them to make my blog into a PDF file. He then took the PDF info to lulu.com and had them print the book for him. He did the math and found that it was the most cost effective way, since my book is so big.

Take a look and see what you think. You, too, can be a published author like me! ;-)


  1. Congratulations, authoress! And congrats on winning my contest. I thought it was so cool that you won! :)

  2. Can't wait to hear what you think of the movie. I think I actually liked it more than the book, which is unusual for me.

    And I've been thinking of making each year of my blog into a journal too. It would be nice to have an actual hard copy. That was very sweet of your hubby! What a thoughtful gift. :)

  3. Congratulations on your win.
    And WOW! on your Blog Book. What a wonderful, supportive husband your man is.
    I'd love to see it in book form.
    I'll think about that one day.


  4. How exciting!
    I've always planned to put mine into books for my babes thru BookSmart, but haven't done it yet.
    Fun, fun!
