The Sunday Salon [5.8.2011]

This is going to be an odds and ends kind of Sunday Salon today.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there. You all impress me every day. I will be seeing my mom next weekend in Las Vegas for her wedding, which is the start of my crazy few months of traveling. Two weeks after Vegas, I am taking a 48-hour trip to St. Louis to visit my best friend from law school who needs some cheering up (I’m hoping my company + Buffy + chocolate helps). And a month from today we leave for Europe. Still deciding what to do with the blog while I am away, so stay tuned. I guess I’ll sleep in July?

My new reading plan was going well until I hit a snag. Review copies. I kind of forgot about them and I apparently did not plan well. So I’m taking a little break from The Plan to read a few books I feel like I HAVE to read (or SHOULD read at least). Oh well.

So what am I reading? Well I just finished Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away by Christie Watson, which I will be reviewing tomorrow. And now I am starting The Ninth Wife by Amy Stolls.

You can still enter to win a copy of The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O’Connor McNees. Two copies are up for grabs until Friday. I will announce the winner in next week’s Sunday Salon.

And finally, I want to brag a little. I ran my third 5k this morning at the I Love Mother’s Day Race in Palm Harbor. I set a personal record by more than 4+ minutes by finishing with a time of 28:50. This was the first race Ben and I ran together and I stayed with him the whole way. It was a beautiful, cool morning here and a lovely day for a race.

So that’s it from me. What are you doing/reading today?

    You are amazing! I couldn’t run a quarter of a mile. Your travel plans sound good (and frantically busy) but think of all the reading time you’ll have on the plane! That is what I get excited about. Our planes will probably cross paths at some point. We’ll both have to sleep in July, but it will be a fun adventure. I can’t wait to hear where you are going in Europe!

      Planes are the one place I don’t read. I am a very nervous flyer and I’m usually better off watching a movie. But maybe I will have lots of train rides!

      We’ll have to swap stories when we get back. 🙂

    I can’t wait to read your thoughts on Tiny Birds, Far Away.I love the cover of it but I’m on the fence when it comes to reading it. 🙂 Congratulations on doing so well on your race. Have a great week.
