Something came ...

Hey everyone! How is your Saturday coming? Mine is awesome so far! :D  I spent the night last night at my grandparents house with two of my sisters. Now we've just finished breakfast, which was glorious eggs and ham (yes, that is a glorious breakfast), and now we're down in the basement watching westerns. Because that's what you're supposed to do on a Saturday. ;)


Alright, moving on. So ... something came in the mail yesterday. Something I've been waiting weeks to finally hold in my hands.

Yes.

I GOT MY BOOK IN THE MAIL. My book.



Okay, so it is only the proof copy, but still!! It's such an amazing feeling to finally hold it in my hands!


It's an 8x5 book, and 190 pages. And ... ahh, it's just so pretty!

Maybe I'm sorta overreacting, but that's okay, right? I'm so excited! :D


*squeals* I love it so much! It's my book!! And I've been waiting for it for what seems like FOREVER!

Ahem. Okay. I'll be quiet now. ;P That's all for this post. Thank you guys so much for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful Saturday! Do you have any plans for the weekend?
Oh, and I know I've been tagged for quite a few different things, so I'll try to have those posts up soon! :)
And ... I'll end this post with a verse. Because ... well, it should be self-explanatory. ;)

Jame 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

  3. That's cool that you got your book! :D

    We usually clean the house on Saturdays, though I'm not done my part yet. :P But we are going to have supper and a campfire at my cousins house today, so that should be fun. :)

    And your new blog design is really nice. :)

      Yeah, cleaning the house is a pretty usual Saturday thing for us too ... but this past week dad and the boys took care of it. ;)

    1. THANK YOU!!! :D *squeals with you* I love it so much! ( I may be slightly biased .. but it seems most people are agreeing with me, so maybe not. xD)
      Isn't it?! I was trying to think of a way to wrap up the blog post, and that verse came to mind. :)

      Haha, thank you! My mom took me to get my nails done the day before this came, and I chose "Elsa Colors". Which I didn't know at the time. I just liked the shade of blue. ;)

      And thank you again! (I think I may sound like a broken recored by now ...:P) I love it as well!! :D
