Morning Meanderings… Books and Gatsby!


Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  It is a coffee day for sure!

Last night was the Ramsey County Library Fundraiser for the Library, The Gatsby Party.  Far be it from me to pass up an event where you get to dress up as well as drag along my partner in crime, Amy.

We had such a good time!

First off we stopped at where my son works as it was 5 miles from the party.  We had a drink and an horduerve there.


Then we invaded their bathroom and changed for the party…


We had so much fun.





There will be more pictures coming from the event this week and I will probably post those next Saturday.  Anyway, music, food, photo booth, auction.. fun.  We drove back last night after the event which brought us home right about midnight.  Thankfully today is a nice relaxing day so I can catch upon some things here but for the most part today will be books and movies. 🙂

Speaking of books…


Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton (audio)

I Remember You by Cathleen Davit Bell (audio)

The Best Of Me (movie!)

The Precious One by Marisa De Los Santos (16 copies from Harper Collins for our book club)

The STRANGER by Harlan Coben


Fun line up of reads.  Hope your Sunday is wonderfully low key 🙂

Morning Meanderings… Getting My 20’s On… Gatsby Style


Good morning!  Thursday already!  I am not even sure how that happened…  I went through most of yesterday thinking it was Tuesday.  No idea where I lost a day.

I have been back and forth on an event in Roseville Minnesota coming up this Saturday.  It is a Gatsby event for their library sponsored by their friends group.  I sooooo want to do an event like this in Brainerd in 2016.  Months ago I said I would attend but then coming back from our long trip, I suddenly just wanted to stay home.  (I kind of still do).


Yet… as the event draws closer… I became inspired.  Yesterday morning I looked at what I had in my closet of dresses and found one or two that will work… then I went to our local party store and found a wig.. yes a wig… that will also work.

I think I want to go.

It sucks that it is 2 hours away… but with a little luck, next year it wont be.  🙂


So that’s what I am up too.

Remember my word for this year is “emerge”… and I need to emerge out of this house.  lol

Today I have a freelance project to start moving on, a mailing for the library, work out session, and the start of the flyer for the bike ride in July for Camp Benedict.  I do not lack for things to do. 😉
