Today, I'm Grateful For Cameras!

I just ran across this random picture of my daughter and I.  I say random because it was sitting alone in a totally unrelated picture file "folder" on our desktop.  Anyway, this was us in the Spring of 2005 (OMG!!!), at the Dallas Museum of Art.  We were playing in the old children's area.  I say "old" because the children's area is a million times cooler these days.  Anyway, she'll be 8 next month and I can't believe how fast the time has gone by.  I'm so grateful we live in an age where it's so easy to capture a memory to share, as well as hold on to forever!  Well, my own personal forever that is.  :)

Look at those cheeks.  Isn't she the cutest!?

Sneak Peek Of My Upcoming Book Review - The Replacement Wife!

Here's a picture of pure happiness.  Not only is this a brand new shiny book written by my favorite author, Eileen Goudge.  It's a brand new shiny book that isn't available in stores or online yet!!!!  Yes, yes...I am that cool.

How did I get to be so cool, you might be asking?  Well, it's pretty simple.  I contacted the author and asked to read and review her new book, The Replacement Wife.  I know, pretty complicated process, huh?  I've been a fan of hers for many years.  More years than I even knew about or can count since she not only has written many bestsellers, but she had a hand in the popular Sweet Valley High books that I read growing up.

Anyway, my little slice of heaven arrived last week in the mail.  But...I was so sick last week, I couldn't even think of reading.  Plus, I didn't want to get sick on the new shiny book.  Also, I don't like putting a book down once I start.  Think of watching a movie over a week span and pausing it 20 times before the end, it's not the same, is it?  Same with me and books.  Yesterday, I had the chance to finally dig in.  I'm on page 80 or so and it's hard to put down...yay!  :)

I shared this news on my personal Facebook last week, and had a few questions about Eileen Goudge's book(s).  What's her writing style, etc.  Here's my professional quote (hehe), "Eileen Gouge writes women's fiction, her books are solid reads that grab you on the first page and have a feel good ending."

Look for my full review coming soon.  Want to know some of her best books?  Leave me a comment and I'll share some of my favorites.  I've read many of her books 2 or 3 times each...

P.S.  Be sure to follow Eileen Goudge on Twitter and me, Wylie Mom on Twitter.

$1.00 Off Silk Pure Coconut Milk & More!!

Have you seen the TV commercials for the 10-Day Silk Challenge?  Basically Silk would like you to try their "milk" on your breakfast cereal for 10 days, to see what you think.  They state, most people prefer the taste of Silk on their cereal to the taste of dairy milk.  It's TRUE, I do prefer the taste of Silk on my cereal!!  And this is coming from someone who ONLY drinks whole dairy milk (I have since the day I left for college...shout out to Almighty Dad.)  Well, the Silk PureCoconut flavor is awesome on cereal, but even better straight from the carton!!

Here's some coupons to get you started!!

$1.00 off one Silk Fruit and Protein (I haven't tried this one yet....sounds good though!)

"Like" Silk on Facebook for another $1 off Silk coupon, recipes and more!
