Wrath Ladies Who Lunch Giveaway

Hello lovelies. Black Château recently send me an advance copy of Wraith Ladies Who Lunch  by Sean Patrick Traver. This book looks like a fun quick read. It’s about ghosts and mummies, and specifically a character named Tasenetnethor who was an actual Egyptian. Her mummy is currently on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Sean’s depiction of her is based off both his research into her real life and her travels as a mummy.

I haven’t had a chance to read this yet, but it’s not long at all and should be the perfect bite-sized read for when I want to finish a book in one sitting.

The book comes out October 24th, just in time for Halloween, but there’s a fun giveaway happening right now! Here’s the info I received about it:

“People who enter the giveaway have the chance to win a gift basket with autographed copies of 3 of Sean Patrick Traver’s books (Grave’s End, Red Witch and Wraith Ladies Who Lunch) along with other gifts.
Second place winners will win 1 of 10 signed copy of Wrath Ladies Who Lunch.

Awesome, right? Click here to enter the giveaway now!

 

Spiced Tea

 

Hello friends. 🙂

Tell me…tea or coffee? If you’ve been around here long you’ve probably noticed I LOOOVE coffee. But it’s just not FALL until I’ve had a cup of spiced tea (apparently often referred to as Russian Tea…I’m not sure why). I’ve tweaked a few different recipes to find one that’s just perfect for me and here’s what I ended up with.

1 cup instant iced tea powder, lemon (sweetened)
2 cups Tang
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

Shake well, then add a heaping tablespoon to a mug of steaming hot water!

PUMPKIN SPICE IS COMING!

Hello lovelies!!! Can you believe it’s September?!? We’ve actually been having far cooler temps than normal here. I woke up one morning last week and it was sixty-five degrees out! I mean I could actually sit on my porch in a sweater and feel cozy. I read that we’re expected to have a much cooler than usual September here, which has me incredibly excited! Bring on pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, and sweaters and scarfs and boots! Yay! If you can’t tell, Autumn is by far my favorite season. What’s yours?

TBR

Hey friends! I can’t believe summer is already coming to a close! I wanted to read a lot  more over the summer than I actually did. I’m hoping this fall I can read some of these books that are just a small portion of my current TBR (to-be-read) pile. What are you reading these days? Have you read a great book lately, or are there any books you’re excited to read soon? If you’d like to talk books, I’m pretty active on Instagram, sharing book pics and such, and I’d love to connect with you there. 🙂

Kwik Stix now at BJ’s Wholesale Clubs!

Hey friends! 😀

If you’ve been around awhile you’ve probably seen me talk about Kwik Stix! They’re the perfect smash-up of paint and markers and great for kids who love to create art, and moms who like to not have a giant mess to clean up afterward!  These are a huge hit with my girls and I just found out that they are now available at all  BJ’s Wholesale Clubs!

We’ve tried and loooved classic Kwik Stix, Metalix, Neons, and Thin Stix! Last October my girls decorated their pumpkins with them. We used the Thin Stix to create custom wooden blocks. I’ve used them for  Bible Art Journaling, and my girls use them for their random art projects all the time! 🙂

Here are a few pics, and you can search “Kwik Stix” on my page to read more about how we’ve used them!
