Double Digits

What better way to celebrate Pearls’s tenth post–I made it to double digits!–than sharing with you, dear reader, a joyous discovery I made yesterday?

Look what I picked up at Target (which has a surprisingly good selection of books)!

I would love to ask you, Betty! (Putnam, 2011)

I can’t wait to read this! The Golden Girls is one of my all-time favorite shows, and I just know I’m going to hear it all narrated in Rose Nylund’s voice. My mom and I are going to visit my sister in NYC this weekend; I think this will be the perfect plane read–if I can wait until then! I’ll definitely let you know how it goes.

What’s your favorite Betty White moment?

(I know you all have one–admit it, you love her!)

This Book Is For Real

Today and tomorrow are moving days for my roommate and me. After three glorious years of roomie-dom, she is heading off to grad school and I am moving in with two other fantastic friends of mine. Needless to say, things are a bit hectic!

This means that I haven’t yet had a chance to write up a review for Heaven Is For Real (Thomas Nelson, 2010), which I recently finished. I finally decided that I don’t want you to wait until I officially review it for you to get this bottom-line message: Go read this book! Now! If you were on the fence about it at all (like I was), then I am confident in saying that it is a worthwhile read.

A full review is to come. Until then, get your hands on a copy so we can talk about it!


How great is this cover? I'm in love with the color.

For All My Grammarians Out There: This One’s 4 U

I’ve been away from Pearls for a while now. Lots of (un)fun things have been going on in my previously charmed life, and I’m having to learn how to put on my big girl panties and deal with it! That said, my intention for this blog to walk the line between personal and professional remains. As such, I need not get into any more detail than that–especially considering the fact that any mention of panties puts me at about my limit for personal discussion!

I recently rediscovered a link that my sister passed along to me about a year ago and it made me laugh out loud all over again. Click the picture and get ready to smile. It’s the little things in life . . .

Ah, just looking at the magnificent Alot makes me happy.
