Schoolgirl Shamus Hottie Has Giveaway Hints!

(There are giveaway hints throughout the post! Just scroll on down if you want to get to the good stuff first!)

I'm a lover of books. I am a huge book nerd! I loved to read girl detective stories when I was a young girl. I still do! I loved Nancy Drew, but the series that I couldn't get enough of was Trixie Belden, the schoolgirl shamus.




70's version current version

Do you have any childhood books that hold special memories for you?

In other news, I have been awarded the Sisterhood Award by my sweet bloggy friend, Robyn over at One of the Jones! I love visiting Robyn's blog! She is a funny lady and an amazing Mama! It's a happy place! Go give her some comment lovin'! You'll love her too!

Also, Cammie, another sweet bloggy friend, shared the Hottie Award with me! Wow! (She's probably been hittin' the wine bottle again...) Go read her blog Life in the House of No Sleep! She makes me laugh so hard that I have to put on the Depends before heading over to her blog! (Take my advice and wear some when you head over there! lol!)

I'm sharing these awards with my real life sister...Aunt Oooo...She's always there for me, and I just want to give her a little shout out to say I love her! She lives on the other side of the country now, and I miss her every day. (sniffle sniffle plop plop...tears falling...) She is a super hottie and I want her to wear this loud and proud!!! Sizzle! Sizzle! Oooo...you are HOT!

I loved Trixie Belden! More so than Nancy Drew--can only remember reading a few of hers. My mother always complained about me having my nose in a book. And I still do!!

I LOVED Nancy Drew as a kid and The Indian in the Cupboard books. I love books too, especially children's books.

OH! I am a major book nerd, always have been!
I never was into Nancy Drew, I was more of a overly romantic book reader...but my favos were definitely the Little House books:)
Kristen Andrews said…
congrats on your awards :) and look who made it on your blog, the little owl!
MindyLew said…
I used to read Nancy Drew too - and I loved the Hardy Boys!! My favorite book when I was young was called the "Boxcar Children" I don't know who wrote it - but I believe it is the first book that truly got me hooked onto Reading!!
Mother Mayhem said…
My favorite was S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders. I had all of her books, but Ponyboy's story was BEST. :o)
aurora said…
I forgot about Trixie Belden!!! Loved those. :D
I remember my sister reading Trixie Beldon...as well as a series of books about Janet Lennon (!?) solving mysteries.

I was hooked on the Hardy Boys. I remember getting new Hardy Boys books with different covers than the ones I already owned and being irked that they were the same stories. I think I had about four copies (all with different cover artwork) of the Tower Treasure before I figured out it was the title that meant it was a different book, not the cover art.

I still do that with videos and often re-rent a movie I've already watched because the cover art is different.

Old dogs, new tricks, etc.

Congrats on your awards!

I too LOVED Nancy Drew--I had the bigggest collection (wish I still had them..). I also loved Roald Dahl and the Beezus and Ramona books a lot.
Ann said…
Oh my gosh! I thought I was the ONLY ONE who read Trixie Belden! I was even talking to my girls about these books the other day. How weird.
(AND... I used to have the same header as your blog. Cue the eerie music ;->. Quick, what number am I thinking of right now!)

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)
