It’s like rain on your wedding day. Except, that’s not really ironic, is it? Thanks Alanis.
I’ve basically discovered that my entire life is ironic. The tag line for my blog is “treading the line between geek and chic.” Well, it’s true. It’s almost like I live two lives sometimes. I’m uber girly and love polka dots, getting flowers, and all that girly type of stuff. But I cannot stand romantic movies. Give me a sci-fi or action flick anyday. I have a blog that sometimes includes fashion posts, but most of the time, I’d prefer to just be barefoot with sweatpants on. I absolutely love cold weather yet I moved to a place where there’s cold weather maybe two months out of the whole year. When I first met my husband, I told a friend of mine that I was going to marry him. We were dating a year later and married 4 years later.
Growing up, I used to be a competitive reader (anyone else remember the Accelerated Reader program? I always used to have the most points in my class.) Now, I’ve (shamefully) only read a handful of book this year. I used to love fiction and wanted to be a writer, but now I almost exclusively read memoirs.
One of my favorite books that I’ve read recently was “99 Problems But a Baby Ain’t One” by Megan Silianoff. I can almost promise you that if you love to read blogs, you’ll love it. Because… well, it IS a blog. Megan started her blog shortly after discovering that she had ovarian cancer at the young age of 28. I’m so glad that she did. The book was touching, hilarious (seriously, I was laughing out loud on the plane. Pretty sure these people thought I was insane) and just downright enjoyable. I know, you’re thinking “how is a book about cancer and adoption enjoyable?” Well, I can promise you that it is. Megan’s ability to bring light to a dark situation is so admirable. I don’t want to divulge too much, but I will say that you need to get your hands on this book STAT. Hence, the link above.
Oh wait, I didn’t mention that I know Megan, did I? I guess in the
interest of being totally transparent, Megan and I are kind of like
besties (only in the way that she doesn’t know it yet). She’s the mind behind Houston Blogger Symposium and is kind of a badass (sorry that I said badass, Mom).
One lucky reader is going to get a SIGNED copy of Megan’s book because she’s amazing and actually trusts me to do a giveaway for her! I won’t tell her that I might not be cool enough for that.
Anyways, you know the drill. Use the widget below to enter and good luck!
