Good morning from….. Minnesota! Yes, I am back. I landed in Minneapolis yesterday evening and had a treacherous drive home through the storms and extreme rain. Twice I pulled over because it was raining so hard I could not see the road. There were cars pulled over everywhere. Talk about your EXTREME driving.
Now I sit in the comforts of my own home chilling with my COFFEE and feel up and thinking about my day of catching up on some household things but mostly…. lying low. I am wiped out but not as wiped out as I have been in the past which is nice. My feet do not hurt from all the walking around the expo and the streets of New York however I do think my shoe of choice today will be “flip-flop”. 😀
Also a few books came in while I was away:
Belly Up, MOUSEHEART, and The Search For Wondla are a win from Beth Fish Reads
Here and Again by Nicole R Dickson (audio)
The Collision Battle for Darracia by Michael Phillip Cash
Andi Under Pressure by Amanda Flower
Throughout this next week I will be posting Book Expo recaps so stay tuned 🙂 I am also still adding posts to Armchair BEA. This afternoon I plan to be giving Book Journey a bit of a facelift… I came up with some ideas at the expo and am excited to get started. I am not sure all what I will be doing, but my hope is that the final look will be fresh and professional looking. Feel free to peek 😉

Luv the flip flops and the pup. I’ll take him off your hands.:)
LOL – sorry, he’s a keeper 😉
I’m always planning to attend BEA, for three years now I haven’t been able to sneak away from work. ugh… Someday I will get there.
Have you started making blog changes? I don’t remember your blog being white. I JUST posted about the blogging class I completed a few weeks ago, with tips. One of the book blogs I used for homework hasn’t updated their profile since 2010! They note this in the opening sentence. HA.
Can’t wait to read your BEA posts. I’m sitting for the first time in days. recovering from dinner for 50…
Yes – I am messing around… in my head I like an all white theme but we will see… 🙂 I will have to check out your post on blog tips!
Have been enjoying everyone’s BEA posts (I didn’t sign up, but I have been following). Looking forward to your review of The Three. and…I think I’m falling in love with Sammy.
We all love Sammy 😀
Hi Sheila…it was so great to finally get to meet you in person!!! Thank you again for all your help/tips before BEA…they were definitely much appreciated! I just got home this morning and am doing much the same – trying to organize for the week and sort out all my books. My box from Harper was already here when I got home! I have 2 dogs and they haven’t left my side since I walked in the door…
Hope you have a nice, relaxing day!!! Can’t wait to see what changes you make to your blog!
Wow! You already received your Harper box? Jealous! Mine is not here yet 😀
BEA was too short – I didn’t get to see as much of you as I would have liked to.
I agree! We were all so busy! I do hope I get to see you next year – if not there – some other book event 😀
I always love to see blog facelifts. In your photo, I like that desk by the window…what a great place to plan your day. Enjoy!
Thanks Laurel 🙂
Though tiring and hectic, it sounds like you had a great experience. With that said, sometimes it is good to be home.
Looking forward to your upcoming posts on the expo.
Thanks Brian 🙂
Lol, check out my link (bottom photo)
I have an identical dog but she’s a girl. And I have another female Shih Tzu, a black one named Sammy like yours. Glad you had a great time in NYC and at BEA, though you had rainy weather coming and going, didn’t you. Must be nice to relax and think about all your new books now 🙂 Enjoy
Thats awesome! Yours looks like our other Shih Tzu, Bailey!
Welcome home! It was so nice seeing you again!
You too! I wish I would have ran into you again on the sales floor – I really wanted to hear what you thought of the show!
Enjoy the hangover 🙂 It was nice to see the flood of BEA posts in the blogosphere … so much bookish love all around!
I am still in my pajamas. 😉
awww about the puppy and BEA sounds like so much fun. I need to go one day. I was at the Javits center last month for the car show, so there’s no reason not to go for the books and authors.
It was SO great to lunch with you on Friday! My favorite thing about APAC and BEA week is meeting people in person that I’ve gotten to know online.
My dog has the exact same expression on her face. She is not letting me out of her sight.
Can’t wait to hear what you think of Here and Again.
And be sure to share Belly Up with your favorite 5th grader – they will love it.
So glad you made it home OK. Missed BEA this year (and seeing you). Hopefully next year!
Glad you made it home safe and sound….it seems like BEA was super fast this year. I can’t wait to hear all about BEA. Btw had to do a double take because I thought I was on the wrong blog love the white and can’t wait to see what you come up with
