spreading some linky love #24

Looking for a good read? Check out a happier girl's latest Imaginary Book Club selections.

Speaking of the Imaginary Book Club, my IBC just finished reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon. Loved this book. It's kind of quirky and I hesitate to put it in any one category. It's a mystery of sorts with a bit of coming of age thrown in and told from the perspective of a boy who falls within the autism spectrum. It was one of those books that I couldn't stop reading because it was so good and yet hated to read it too quick and end the experience.

These are the kind of family pictures I'd like to have taken. I love the one of the feet with the little guy. She is incredibly talented.

Blog I'm enjoying: Confusaled. We share similar tastes in video gaming and I think we should start a two person campaign for a Guitar Hero Legends of Country game. I would kick ass at that.

Okay I'm heading out to buy myself a dishrack, because those pot lids sliding all over my cupboard make me want to scream. Why didn't I think of that myself?

I am seriously considering heading up to Ottawa to crash Emily's birthday party because it sounds very cool.

Mike and I watched Dan in Real Life this weekend. What a sweet movie. I laughed a bit, cried a bit. Who knew Steve Carrell could do sweet? And heartbreaking? Is anybody else ready for The Office to come back?

And more babies in the blogosphere. Go on over and congratulate Renae on her expanding family.

I TOTALLY agree with the country Guitar Hero! It would be fun, and I might even bother to play long enough to get decent at least decent enough to keep up with my friend's 12 year old!

Thanks for the mention of my blog! It's a work in progress, so I'm glad to know you like it!

Hi!! I have been a longtime lurker on your blog, and am delurking. I used to write a beauty blog ( but decided to expand the concept so am now at

One of the reasons for the new blog was that I love What's Cooking Wednesday and love to cook and wanted to start posting on Wednesday. I will come back tomorrow to comment on your post :D

Kristina - i'm with you on that. So much of today's country crosses over I think it's silly not to have one.

Heidi - Amen, sister!

City Girl - always happy to see a delurker! Can't wait to see your WCW posts. And I am honoured that WCW inspired you!

Thanks for the congrats! That's very sweet of you.
My expanding family and expanding waist line... seriously, I'm due in February... I don't think the baby weighs 20 pounds right now. So it goes, huh?
