OMG We still can't believe how far we've come. It's a been a year guys! I remember when we first started the blog we had no clue, and I mean no clue what we were doing. It took a lot of time and help from others to finally get the hang of it all. We loved the idea of reviewing books and everyone reading our thoughts and sharing their opinions with us. We truly have discovered a whole new world. We've made some greats friends along the way, and have even met and chatted with some of our favorite authors. We can only imagine what else is waiting for us. After all, everyday we learn something new about the blogging world.
Before we get into anything else, we'd like to take a moment to give thanks to some of the people who have helped us along the way, and kept up with our craziness for a whole year. LOL
So a HUGE Thank you to:
Yara @ Once Upon A Twilight
Raquel @ Skyla11377
The Ladies over at Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed Forum
And finally, we cannot forget our followers. Thank you so much for keeping up with the blog, entering our giveaways, and all the wonderful comments you leave. It is so much fun sharing and talking books with you. :-)
I know we forgot to say thank you to many more, but a big Thank you to you as well.
Now, each day the girls and I will be sharing with everyone a little about ourselves and we will be giving away our favorite books. So we hope you will celebrate with us from the 11th to 15th.
Random Information about Damaris...
Have you ever written a poem?
Yes I have. I remember as a teen thinking how horrible life was and always wrote a poem about my life lol. Looking back now, I actually had it pretty damn good lol.
Have you ever been in the opposite sex's public toilet?
Ha! Yes I have! I was at a restaurant once and got up to take my oldest son to the bathroom and must have missed the WOMEN sign because I ended in the MENS. I was so embarrassed and the sad part, I thought they were in the wrong bathroom and was looking at them as if they were crazy LOL.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
When I make plans with people and they never show, call or show up super late and make me late. I am the kind of person who, If I have to be somewhere at one, I am there at twelve hanging around LOL. I hate making plans with others. I tend to do things on my own a lot because I hate waiting for others LOL.
What makes you laugh?
Lot’s things make me laugh actually. I laugh at the stupidest things too. LOL I have a weird sense of humor.
Would you ever parachute out of a plane?
No lol, but I have been thinking about this a lot lately. So weird! I was watching the movie Point Break with Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, and there is a scene where they jump out of a plane, and got me thinking what it would feel like. I am adventurous and daring, but I don't think I can do that lol.
What is the one thing you cherish most in life?
What I cherish most are my two boys, Ethan and Adam. Without them I would seriously be lost. I have grown so much because of them and look at life from a whole different perspective. They are my world, my life and I would do anything for them.
What's the most daring thing you've done?
Probably the time my friend and I were in Florida for a weekend and we decided to jump into the hotel pool at like 2 am with only our panties on. Yeah, I was about eighteen at the time LOL. It wasn’t fun when the security guard came and asked us to please go back to our hotel room and get dressed lol.
If you could relive any age, what age would you be?
Fifteen. That was my Backstreet Boys year and I was pretty much all over the U.S. for them going to concert from concert. I’m surprised my mother never called the cops and reported me missing LOL.
What is your favorite cartoon of all time?
Sailormoon!!! I love the Sailor Scouts and Prince Darien. I used to pretend I was Sailor Jupiter and whenever I was mad about something, I’d pretend I was shooting everyone with my thunder bolts lol. I have every single episode of Sailormoon on DVD.
Have you ever been in a car that ran out of gas?
Yes, on one of our many road trips to see a boy band. We were on our way back from North Carolina and right on the New Jersey Turnpike the car just stopped. A cop came who then called a toll truck who then gave us a bit of gas to make it to a gas station lol. So embarrassing.
If you won a $5,000 shopping spree to any store, which store would you pick?
Ha, probably more make-up LOL. Mac store, BH Cosmetics, any make-up store. You have girls who are obsessed with name brand clothes or having lots of shoes, I am obsessed with make-up. I’ve always loved doing my make-up or doing everyone else’s make-up. The picture to the right is my new palette by BH Cosmetics lol.
Five things you are obsessed with.
You mean other than books and make-up? The Vampire Diaries, Facebook, Twitter, anything paranormal and Glee. Of course this list changes like every month lol.
Okay, enough about me LOL! I am going to giveaway three of my all time favorite books! I've read so many great books this past year and discovered so many new authors, but these three books is what really started it all for me.
True Believer and At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks
I am a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks and out of all his books these two really touched me. So the lucky person who wins, make sure to have a box of tissues with you lol.
If it weren't for my obsession with The Mortal Instruments, I would have never come across MundieMoms blog. Because of my visit to their blog, I decided that reviewing books was an awesome idea and now we have Good Choice Reading. So I am giving away my audio disc of City of Bones, the first in Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series.
