I have M.I.A.... and here is why...

I have been absent from my own blog for a while now. I am sorry you guys; really I am. I have been a good girl though as I have tried to visit everyone and comment there.
But the reason behind me not being here is... No, silly... not him... although.... **evil wink**
Ware gearing up for Homecoming.... Not one... but two... And not one... but two birthday parties.... actually three if you count my blog party!!
Back to the dances... My baby girl got invited to go to another schools dance... This is last years picture....
It was one weekend for dress. One afternoon trip after school for shoes. This weekend for accessories, manicure and pedicure... And now we count down the days and figure out details on a daily basis... because if I have learned anything with "kids"... plans change every day!

I will keep you guys posted on how things are going with us and the chaos that I live daily!!! LOL!!!! The life of trails and tribulations of having a 15yr going on 16yr old daughter! Yeesshhh!
But, I will post some things we all need to see, read, here, look at... whatever you want to call it...

First up...Do you see how hot this cover is... Do you want this cover.... I know you want it... Just look at him... Well, if you want it that bad... keep reading!!!

Sophie Renwick needs our help!! I am going to sell my soul to the The Lord of the Underworlds for her!!! LMAO!!! Thought you would like that one Sophie!! LOL!!!
We need to round up our troops and help her books sales... or we might miss out on book 2... That is right... read....

This is from her site:
"Now, I know it's months, and months away, but I just got word that my publisher and I won't be going to contract for book 2 in the Immortals of Annwyn series till they find out the number of pre-orders. In layman's terms that means, 'if the bookstore pre-orders are good, we'll go to contract, if not, we'll see what sales are like'."

Please go to either of these sites and pre-order your book today!!!
You are sooo going to love this series.... And believe me, it is amazing! The woman is a fantastic author and a wonderful friend!!

  1. Oh my goodness you've got a lot going on!!! Your daughter is so cute! I think I'll have it easier with my son than a daughter (that's still several years down the road, whew!).

    Ms. Renwick is a new-to-me author, I'll head over and check out her site. Now that I'm a fangirl of Charlotte Featherstone, I'll be spending more time at her place too!

    And wow, Barbara is one talented lady - those blogs are gorgeous!

  2. Great post Cecile :=)
    We never had any dances like that at my school, what a shame, but I did save a lot on pretty dresses. I hope she will have a great time.

    And yes some awesome headers Barbara did there

  3. Hi Cecile! It's good to have you back :)
    Hope everything goes well with those dances.

  4. Awww...Cecile your girl is so adorable! LOVE the dress...I wish we still got to do homecomings and proms even though we are out of school! lol

  5. Thanks for the pimping of Velvet Haven. Geesh, I'm not good at pimping, and this is the part of writing that really doesn't appeal to me. But thanks for makign it easy!!!!

    Proms. We only had one, which is senior prom, and in Canada we don't have Homecoming. I wish we did.

    Now your daughter...what a beautiful girl. I can't wait to see this year's dress.

    My daughter is 10. I have a few more years in which to think about this. I wonder if by this time she'll have quit asking her dad to carry her to bed! :)

  6. Brooke is beautiful!!! I think the next 2-3 yrs at your house are going to be very interesting;)

  7. Cecile your daughter is beautiful.You have alot going on this month,don't forget to take some time for yourself.

    I'm looking forward to Velvet Haven.But I don't think I'll pre-order from Chapters,their pre-order charges have changed and are insane.Its like another $8.So the bookdepository here I come :)

    Have a great day!!

  8. Woot! Woot! Lots of cool stuff happening with the LIT ladies and Sophie Renwick. I'm so excited for their upcoming releases. Awesome pimpage, girl!!

    Ooooo and Brooke looks gorgeous! I'm lovin' her dress. Homecoming at my high school wasn't nearly so glamerous.

  21. Our daughters are the same age.15 going on 16 (next year February for mine) and it's school holidays today so of course we had to go do the nails.(not allowed to have long nails school time) so I took her and a friend and then picked them up after with the longest nails.I was not impressed nor were they.The lady made them so looong and they both look 35 or something.Then Shan got oil under the one nail while searching for something.She used a bottled water in the car to clean up then closed the bottle.Some oil still in cap which was then drunk by big brother who then got a runny stomach.This is now just the first day of holidays!!!!

  22. Yvette~ Oh hon...sounds like the holidays are starting off just "great" for you! LOL!
    Isn't life with a teenager just wonderful! We all tease each other with the stages of life, terrible twos... things like that... Hump... no one told me about these years! LOL!!! But oh the memories I do remember when she was little and even now. It is priceless!
    Thanks for coming over! Miss ya! Hope the house is going better for you!

  23. Thank goodness, I have at least 6 more years till the dance stuff starts. Hang in there and have tons fun! You did get mommy a mani-pedi too right ;)
