Monday Mentions

I'm loving my bloggy friend Jen's new Monday Mentions meme. I find so many great reads, products, and gossip through it!

  • My first mention is completely self-serving. It's to say that I really, truly had planned to blog well before this post. I started writing both Girl Talk Thursday and Friday Fragments posts, but I was too tired at the time to finish them. If you're looking for fun blog fodder, check them out, along with Saturday Word Wall.
  • As I've previously mentioned, the Girl Talk site has introduced me to some pretty awesome girls and their blogs. Nic and Kelly inspired me last week with the personal stories they so bravely shared with their readers. You rock, girls!
  • Saturday was World Card Making Day. Look at this beautiful card I received from Yvette. This surprise brightened up my weekend, Yvette, so thank you.

  • Having been sick most of the weekend, I spent a lot of time in front of the TV. A mention needs to go to Kristen Stewart in Speak. Although I didn't love her portrayal of Bella in Twilight, she nailed the character of Melinda Sordino.
  • Did you know that it's Great Books Week? If you're a reader, check out the Great Books Week Blog Tour. They have some great prompts to think about.
That does it for me tonight, folks. Have a good one!
  • PS. Hubby and I are watching Lady Gaga on SNL right now. I'm putting this gyroscope costume on my Christmas list.

I'm so glad you joined us! This is a lot of fun.

That card is GORGEOUS!!!

Lady Gaga is so fascinating. I have to give her credit--it is hard to take your eyes off of her when she is performing.

Saturday word wall looks fun! I may have to give that meme a try one of these weeks. Thanks for sharing. :)

I kept thinking I'd make a card for World Card Making Day, but I'm too lazy. The one you got is so far above my level -- but it's something to strive for.

I'm glad to have inspired you. Now hear this: Christmas is too long to wait. Halloween is just a few weeks away. Hello costume idea!

Isn't Yvette the best! I just got a little gift from her too and it is super sweet. That card is gorgeous!!

I'm sorry to hear you were sick too. :( I'm really interested to see Speak now that you mentioned it. Having read the book I'm intrigued that she plays Melinda. I'll have to definitely check that out.

I hope you get to feeling better.
