Best of the Week

Best of the Week
February 21-25, 2011

I'm very excited to announce that C has finally started his blog! He only has a few posts so far, but he's well on his way to becoming addicted to blogging! I think it will mostly be beer reviews, but he'll occasionally blog about food and our weekends as well! Tell your boyfriend/husband/any beer aficionado you know to check it out...I'm sure he'd love to see new followers :)

The Brewtal Yeti (get it?!)

As an update to last week's Best Of, I received my blog book from Blurb, and I couldn't be more pleased! Many of you expressed an interest in turning your blog into a book, and Blurb makes it super easy and affordable. The quality of the book is great, and you have complete control over every aspect of the creation process. I did my book in about 4 hours. It's 102 pages and the total cost (including shipping) was under $40. Here are some pictures of my book:

National Margarita Day was on Tuesday, and margaritas are like my all time favorite beverage! So C made me a yummy margarita to accompany our chicken taco dinner. Thank you internet for telling me about this wonderful celebration!


And really, the best of the week is the fact that at 6 pm today, I will be on vacation for 9 glorious days! I am so excited and I've hardly been able to sit through this week without daydreaming about sleeping in and relaxing!

C and I are going to Carlsbad for the weekend. C had an event that ended up getting canceled because of bad weather, but we already had reserved our timeshare. I'm sure we'll find something to do! I am excited about watching the Oscars.

Then on Monday, we are driving to Las Vegas to meet up with my parents, and on Thursday, C's parents are joining us, along with his aunt & uncle, and a couple of cousins. This will be the first time I'm meeting his parents as well as the first time his parents are meeting my parents (obvi). I'm really praying that things go smoothly and everyone gets along. (By the way, this was in no way planned, it was coincidence that our parents were going to be in Vegas the same week so we just decided to get all the introductions over with.)

Come back Monday for an AWESOME giveaway...I am so excited I can hardly stand it, but I'm going to keep my mouth shut for a couple more days! But I do promise that you won't want to miss it! Have a great weekend friends!

Hey I've heard of a few places that will do a book for your blog...Did you have to "design" or input each post separately?

Oh! Enjoy your wonderful vaca!!! And how fun it will be for all of your families to meet up :o0

Blessings & Aloha!

I’ll tell Geof about C’s blog. Geof has a blog too. He does some beer reviews, but mainly it’s movie reviews and things like that.

I didn’t know Blurb was so affordable and you book looks great. I’m going to have to devote some time to this.

That taco and margarita look yummy! I should have celebrated with one too.

I hope you have a great vacation!!
