Monday morning madness

Hey there bleary-eyed bloggers! On your second cup yet? I'm there next. Did y'all watch the Oscars last night? Ya didn't miss anything important. During the show, I kept thinking of Simon's words on American Idol last week: "That was self-indulgent." Ho hum, thank God for the DVR and the all-important fast forward feature! (Although Jennifer Hudson? You rock!)

Tried to hit the beach yesterday but the sand tornadoes kept me away. Seriously, we had quite the wind storm in So Cal on Sunday. The wind swirls did blow away clouds making the Channel Islands clearly visible, so that's a plus. But sand in the hair and teeth? Not so fun.

Mi mama and I are hittin' the road tomorrow for some coastal madness. Yeah, we'll be visiting bookstores along the California coast for the next few days, bringing chocolates and friendly hellos to the shopkeeps. I'll try to post from the road and let you know if this newbie author is welcomed with open arms or sent packing.

I gave up on watching the full-blown Oscars a couple years ago. I usually just look up pictures the next day to see what people were wearing and who won the big awards.

Have fun with your mom tomorrow! I'm sure you'll be welcomed everywhere you go--especially, if you go bearing the gift of chocolate! :)

Anyway, just wanted to stop in and say hello and happy Monday!

I wish I knew which way along the coast you were headed. Would love it if you'd stop be a store near me! ;-)

Hi Julie, I recently finished reading Chocolate Beach. I loved it! It was hard to put down. Brianna was such a fun character (much like you?!! :)) A cute side note is that my daughter is named, Breanna, and my son is named, Nathan. :) Also, I was so excited to read on Gina's blog that there will be a sequel! :) Happy Road Trippin'!
