Aloha!=) I love the theme of your blog. I am always happy to have consistent weather since I love to read outdoors.
I dont think I will be entering. I am not familiar with the titles and authors but I am always up for something new.

Thank you for having such great selections available. I will have to look into the titles.



Have a good one, Chasity

Lori, again, this is such a cool idea. Really creative. It must have taken a LOT of work.

Oh one more thing, last week you wrote about the packers. I am from Minnesota. Instant rivals right? NO!!! For years, the Mike Holmgren years, I was a HUGE Packer fan!!!!!! Then I had kids and couldn't find the time to watch. I am not a huge Vikings fan, I still cheer for Green Bay even though I married a Bears fan :-)
