One of my resolutions for 2014 is to read more and I've been stacking up books on my nightstand accordingly.
ON MY NIGHTSTAND
-My mom gave me The Happiness Project and I'm loving it. It's a self-help book disguised as a memoir - so I'm picking up tons of great life tidbits while merely immersing myself in Gretchen Rubin's life which is interesting enough on its own.
-The Chels monster has a new book coming out, Uganda Be Kidding Me, in March which I'll read. She's going on tour too - including a Houston stop on March 3rd.
-And like Vanessa Williams, I've saved the best for last!
I'd Rather be Short - 100 Reasons Why It's Great to be Small is as cute, creative, and corky as its author - Miss Becky Murphy. Becky, who I feel honored to call a friend, is just one of those people who's cool without trying. She's got that X factor that Simon was always talking about on Idol, before he impregnated his friends' wife. Becky's funny, talented, smart, warm, successful, and humble - all of which comes through in her blog, Chipper Things. She's the whole package y'all. If it sounds like I have a lesbian crush on her it's because I do.
True to her cool form, Becky's publisher agreed to give a Greetings From Texas readers a copy of the book. Simply leave your email address in my comments section and I'll pick a winner next Thursday (January 16th) at noon! Enter anytime up until then.
Happy Weekend everyone!
P.S. I feel compelled to tell you that I recently found cute dresses from the Garage and want one of each. That's all. Carry on!
