Charlie - -I thought about you a few times this week at the show. I heard two separate conversations on how our shows are the best thing around, and no one does it like us. One conversation on the bus to off site and one of the bus ride home. All manufacturers talking to each other. I just sat there and smiled as I eves dropped on their conversation. I also thought about how proud you probably are of Swiz right now. She's doing an amazing job!
anxiety/panic disorder - - I am trying to keep you at bay. I've given you 20+ years, can you move on?
happy friday everyone!
have a great weekend!

... that I packed for freezing cold and got 70 degree weather.
... that I got overwhelmed this week, but quickly came out of it.
... that I said I wasn't going to online shop this show, and already have.
... that also said I wouldn't snack at this show, but I did, with all the new candy and snack products, its hard to say no.
... that I'm not a coffee person but have had Starbucks every morning.
... that I am turning in my $5 Starwood hotel credit in for Starbucks and not points.
... that I watched the girls "wobble" last night while I worked and wanted to jump in just for that song, but didn't.
... that when I made it up to my room last night and blasted "Wagon Wheel" and danced to that instead, by myself.
Making my way to Austin today!
Happy Thursday y'all!

I wanted to start reviewing books I've read, as I feel like I am always looking for a good, new read. Hopefully some of my reviews will help you all discover books you would like to read.
You first should know, I haven't always loved to read. I desperately tried liking it in high school and college while all my other friends were swapping books and stories, but I have a wandering mind. I can not concentrate for the life of me. Its a blessing and a curse. I am now teaching myself to "Live in the moment" and not thinking about everything in the future, weather it be for work or in my personal life. I've learned, especially recently, there isn't always tomorrow, so plan for today and live in today. (I'm at least telling myself that and trying to live that way).
On my honeymoon in 2009, we sat by the pool in Mexico for an entire week, and I decided to give reading a try. And wouldn't you know I finished three books. I've realized there are a few styles of books I am drawn to. And once I learned what those were and how to pick out those books, I started to love reading.
Which brings me to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I've seen Gillian on a number of newscasts and talk shows, and apparently this was one of "the" books of last year. It had one of the styles I liked, a little bit of mystery/suspense. Now, it started out slow and I almost stopped reading it. But I am glad I stayed with it. I finished it in no time!
I love a book that I just can't wait to get back in my hands at night and start reading. That's this kind of book. For anyone looking for a new book, I would highly recommend this one! Remember, hang in there through the first part of the book, I promise it gets there.
The next book on my list is The Great Gatsby. If you remember I am participating in the Blogger Book Club and this is the choice of the month. I know a lot of people read this in high school, but I never did. So I am very excited to do so. The movie comes out this summer, so I am happy this one was picked. (going to make hubby take me to the movie, since I sat through Zero Dark Thirty for him....grrrr)

Second, I wish when I was in my twenties, I would have found a blog that would have shown/told me exactly what these experiences would mean to me one day. I've mentioned before I am, for the most part an open book, and I attribute that to always wanting to help people. There have been so many times when things were going on in my life, that I wanted to hear someone say " I went through that" or "you're not alone". So for any of my twenty something followers, I hope my thoughts and experiences help you in your journey through this decade of your life.
Some of the topics I am going to headline are : friends, parents, siblings, work/career, health/fitness, anxiety/mental health, marriage, being present in your life, accepting yourself, loving the world around you.
If there is anything I've mentioned on this blog that you are interested in and you think it would be a good fit for this series, please leave a comment or e-mail me at: TheLawsNest@gmail.com
I'm really excited to get this series started. Hope you'll follow along!
