Where did the time go?

Well hello everybody and how do you do! Back so soon, Nikki? Nope! It’s Amy here! Okay, before you all shower me with hugs and kisses, I must apologize. I haven’t posted in, how long? OVER A MONTH!!! (36 days, to be exact…) Even Nikki (No offense intended. ;-)) has been keeping up better than I have! Anyway, school started without a hitch, but somewhere in there I lost my iPod for 3 to 4 weeks. Uh, whoops? My mom actually found it. *guilty face* So you have her to thank. Anyway, I did post on Instagram the day after (or so), but I just haven’t gotten around to making a post here. Today I finally checked my texts, and Nikki had told me a week ago that she had posted, so I checked it out! Then, of course, I felt so incredibly guilty that I had to write a post. Wow, where to begin? I feel like I have so much to tell you, and catch up on, and… Well, I do!  Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday, and Other Things

Hey everyone! It’s Amy here. 🙂 I wanted to apologize for being kind of AWOL for the past week… Last week I was pretty much obsessed with Instagram. Yes, that means I figured it out. And yes, you can applaud me now. No, I’m not kidding. Hey, social media is CONFUSING!!!!!!!!!! So yeah, if you have an Instagram you should click that little camera button on the right hand side right now. See it? Good! Now click it and don’t come back until you’ve checked it out! 😆Anyway…. Sometime around Sunday or something, I realized that I had been spending SO MUCH time on my iPod that I had not been reading much at all. Well, I do have to give credit to Instagram- it was in my headspace because someone on Instagram (I have NO idea who) posted about that, and after sleeping on it I felt like I had done the same thing. So… The next day I just read all day. And knitted (no, it’s not for grannies. Knitting is really calming and quite pleasant!) while watching TV. Anyhoo, that would be my excuse for being AWOL. I just realized that instead of reaching for my book, I was going for my iPod all the time, and I was really suffering from it. But, however, I do feel like I went a bit overboard. Hopefully I can find some balance between crazy bookstagramming and crazy knitting/reading. At least, I’m working on it… 🙂 Since I completely skipped my TTT last week (I meant to do it, but you see how that turned out….) I’m going to do five from last week’s topic and five from this week’s. They both look a little difficult so hopefully this will shake things up a bit. 😉 So, without further ado… The first topic!

What Are You Reading Wednesday?

Hi all! 😀 I’m back for my WAYRW on Thursday. Okay, just stating the obvious here but still… 😉 Anyway, I know I promised you a WAYRW Wednesday, but I was spending time with a good friend I hadn’t seen in a while, and then I ended up making cookies (which by the way are extraordinarily delicious if I do say so myself, and they taste exactly like fudge but they have oats so the texture is really different), and as you see, one thing led to another in a big ol’ domino effect (and wow this is a long sentence and a run-on to boot if I’m not mistaken) and the post simply didn’t get done. I actually started it, but I just have so many things I want to tell you and so there you have it. There is simply not enough time in the world to talk about books AND read them, don’t you think? Sheesh, I really didn’t mean to talk about this for so long. The short version of what I just said? I’m sorry, I’m here now, let’s do this baby! Continue reading

TTT and WAYRW Sunday

I’ve done it. It’s official. I have caught Nikki Fever. This is my latest TTT post ever, and I don’t even have a good reason! Honestly? I wasn’t even that busy, I was just reading and playing my instruments. (Plus, I had a bit of a sneak peek at the topic. You’ll see what I mean in a minute)

😦

Well, better late than never, right? I’ll stick my WAYRW post in here, so put on your patient face! (No scowling! Do it!)  Continue reading

No, I haven’t been kidnapped! (Hey! I heard that collective sigh of disappointment!)

Doesn’t this look nice?

Or better yet… How does THIS look?!

Best of all… this!

Also, remember how we mentioned a story contest, between us and between you guys? Sorry there have been no updates since the initial idea… Hopefully there will be more info coming up in Nikki’s TTT this week! (Yes I know it’s late again, don’t worry it’s coming! At least I think so… I should really get on her about that. Hehe. She’ll love more nagging, now won’t she?) Onto the questions…
