I'm signed up.

I'm a bit nervous, a little excited, and kinda proud.

Website Wednesday

Technical difficulties prevented me from posting last week's "Website Wednesday" this week I'm giving you 2 websites to consider!

The first is'm about a third of the way into "Pride & Prejudice".

Next is've used this site for over a year now and find that it's a great way of getting books to without paying much at all and not having to worry about late fees.

Website Wednesday

I visit daily, on average, about 50 blogs and websites that cover everything from cooking to politics to wedding planning. So when I come across a really interesting needle in the haystack, I love to share it with a mass email. After receiving a few of my emails, ASM suggested that dedicate a weekly blog post to one of those finds.

So I present to you, the first post for "Website Wednesday".

Check it out. I placed an order Monday morning for 8 items with an expected delivery of Thursday (FREE SHIPPING!) and them promptly removed "Target" from my to-do list for this weekend.

Leaves me more time to discover new blogs. ;-)

I'll write an update on the service once the order arrives.

"...a list of things I want to do with you before I die."

Sounds a bit morbid but it was one of the most touching text messages I have ever received.

Went to high tea on Sunday with ASM and it was the most enjoyable afternoon. We have a list of tea services in Dallas that we want to make our way through and this particular parlor is inside an antique store. After enjoying our tea, tea sandwiches, scones, and desserts, we wandered the stalls for a couple of hours. ASM found the paragon of indoor benches and I really, really hopes she goes back to get it. I found an art-deco dining set that sent my heart a-fluttering. It was so perfect, it's Tuesday evening and my heart is still a-fluttering over it.
Next on the list...Canton, Texas.
