The Challenge: An Update

Some of you may remember this post from way back in January. Here's my attempt at a very underwhelming update. First, publicly decreeing my plan to read 5 books in 2011 didn't make me magically start reading more. It did the opposite and actually made me want to read less. I am failing miserably at my book goal. Disappointing but honest.

With this being said, I did finish my first of five books.
Yup, one whole book. And I loved it.

Maybe it was the fact that I forced myself to finish the book before the movie comes out on August 10. Regardless, I loved it and can now partake in all the conversations surrounding this book. I am really looking forward to seeing who they select to portray these women on the big screen. 1 down, 4 to go.

I am looking for something similar to the frames below.
I need an 8x10. Wall hanging not easel back.
I would prefer lime green, orange or yellow.
Sounds like a fairly reasonable request.

More like impossible. I thought this would be easy. I have been looking for almost 8 months to no avail. I have looked everywhere. It has come down to this. My pathetic pleas to my fellow bloggers. Go ahead.....try and Google this style of frame. Tell me how you search for it. It's annoying. Pinkitzel (the cupcake/candy place Downtown) has incredible ones hanging in their store but will not tell me the name of the store where they purchased them. All they would divulge is they purchased them in Dallas. Please leave a comment if you have any suggestions or can assist with my quest for this frame. Sincerely, Desperate.

Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon

I am so excited Showtime is airing this documentary in August.
I missed it at deadCenter because I literally could not handle the crowd.
Here are the details.

Shut the front door!

My summer is now complete. July 28.
I was really stressing about all my shows ending for the summer.
What was I going to watch? Heaven forbid I crack a book.
