Friday Five: What’s hot today…

ONE ~ I’m going to see Tim McGraw perform tonight! I can’t express how excited I am about this concert; I’ve wanted to see him perform for years. The icing on the cake: Lady Antebellum is opening! I’ve already gushed about how much I love them HERE. The cherry on top of the icing on the cake: My husband and I are spending a childless night together in Seattle. Hoping to relive my college days. 🙂

TWO ~ I started reading Ken Follett’s World Without End this morning. It’s been awhile since I read an “adult” book, but I’m a big fan of the epically fascinating Pillars of the Earth, and World Without End is a follow-up of sorts. It takes place in the 1300s and even though I’m only on page seven, I’ve already read about a thieving eight-year-old girl and her father, whose hand was chopped off because of his own stealing. What’s not to like?

THREE ~ I have a new nephew! Gabriel was born May 19th and weighed in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces. My husband, daughter and I are making the ten-hour drive to Mountain Home, Idaho (you’re jealous, I know!) next weekend to visit the little munchkin. Look at those chubby cheeks!

FOUR ~ I’m obsessed with Savvy Authors. If you haven’t checked it out, you need to. Right now. There are too many features to name here, but I’ll try to list a few: workshops, word count/page number trackers, pitch fests, forums, chat rooms, expert resources, critique groups, agent listings, an auto critter… seriously. It’s an amazing resource with supportive and generous people. There’s a $30 a year membership fee to access all the good stuff, but I assure you, it’s well worth the money!

FIVE ~ One of my all time favorite TV shows is Sex and the City. I’ve seen every episode at least once and the movie more times than I care to admit. If you’ve never watched it (and aren’t easily offended), I definitely recommend it. Rent season one at Blockbuster or from Netflix and I promise you’ll be hooked. The movie’s sequel comes out May 27th and I’ll be there (with my mom, SATC’s second biggest fan!) to see it. Can’t wait to be reunited with Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda! **Plus, did you hear Aidan’s back?!
