Scent of a Birthday: Celebrities + My Top 10 Favorite Things for Top 10 Tuesday (Hint: Yep, Books are Involved)

Yesterday, I realized I'm thisclose to sharing a birthday with Shakespeare. I missed it by 2 days, but it made me wonder who I do share this day with. Turns out, it's some pretty cool people who are also indirectly related to my 10 favorite things! It all comes together...

Monday Blogs: Best Bada#! Female Characters and Why We Love Them

I love strong female characters. And since it's women's history month, I thought a blog about some of my favorite badass female characters in TV, movies and literature and why they rock, would be fun. So here it goes!

Sunday Funday: One Crazy Afternoon of Books, Music and Food (But Mostly Books)

On our way to our weekly music lesson on Sunday, my daughter sat in the back seat of the car lamenting that we never do anything interesting on Sundays and that she needed more steps.

Halloween Journey: Interview with a Vampire Story Lover

Halloween is so soon. And what would my 13 days of Halloween blog be without at least one ode to undead bloodsuckers? From literature to TV to film, the popularity of these pervasive mythical monsters is unstoppable. I am not only a vampire fangirl. I also do my part to continue this cultural fondness for the fang. I’ve even sired a new vampire story fan—my 11-year-old daughter, who recently sank her teeth into ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ reruns. (While she thinks Buffy kicks butt she also keeps asking my why that Angel guy never wears his shirt.) Where did my fang-tastic obsession begin?
