A Year of Blog Headers and a New Book

I can't find January '10! 


It's physically impossible for me to walk 
into a bookstore and not buy a book.
So, while on the Vineyard Monday
we went into the bookstore and of course 
I bought a new book..
even though I've got many books
sitting on my nightstand
waiting to be read.
But, I had just read about this book
in the Sunday paper 
and had to have it.

Now, I'm not a young, new mother
but this book looks interesting.
I am fascinated by 
 other cultures and how they raise their children.
Now I just need to find time in 
my day to read all of these books
and watch the last three episodes of 
Mad Men.
Oh that Don Draper.
I love him 
and I hate him.
Can't wait for Season 5!


  1. I love books. I love bookstores. I wish I had a million books in my house. Your new book sounds really good, and I'm in need of a few new ones. I am going to go look it up. That last picture is sweet of Griffy sitting at the table. He is always so adorable. :))

  2. Oh how cool. Meiling is a friend of mine from college. I read her first book, but haven't gotten this one yet. It's on my wish list.

  3. l love seeing all your headers. Bookstores are hard for me too. And now that I have a Kindle browsing on it is even more dangerous..It's so simple to buy now. I don't even have to leave my bed!
    Don Draper :) When does season 5 start?

  4. I am a sucker for books too...especially parenting books that look to inspire etc. So hope you find time and then can share your opinion :)

    I wish I was organized with my headers to look back. maybe this year I can be.

  5. I love looking back at the headers...... so fun! And if I had to pick a favorite it would have to be March..... I love the yellow!

    Oh, books... how I adore them. And the thought of an old book and the smell.... makes me weak in the knees almost.

  6. Love all your headers. I love books too, actual books. I got a kindle fire for my birthday (as a surprise) and I am still not certain how I feel about it.

  7. i'm a total sucker for books, too, pam ... but OMG don't even get me started on what a sucker i am for don draper ... guuuurl ... season 5 can't start fast enough - march 25, have you heard?!

  8. Just watched half through season 4 on Netflix. We joined the Don Draper party late. But now that I see there are only a handfull of shows left I'm trying to make them last. I just keep hoping he will be able to redeem himself. Love Peggy.

  9. This was so fun to look back on the year with you and remember each one.
    I got a gift card to B&N. I'm ordering that book today. I've got some time to . . . waste . . . use how I want!
    Here's wishing you some snow!

  10. That looks like a great book! Did you watch the movie "Babies" ? It's super cute. Preview before you watch with your boys, though. Lots of, um, topless breastfeeding in other cultures. :)
