Bookstore adventure

Took a few minutes to thoroughly embarrass myself at a local Borders in search of a book highly recommended by Romancereadingmom (otherwise known as Tara). I'd rushed out of the house, late, on my way to buy a baby gift for my sister's shower. Naturally this meant I'd left my little notebook with the all important directions, gift ideas & 'books wanted' list on the table at the house. Hubby had pulled a double shift overnight & was asleep so I didn't want to awaken him with the phone.

I figured I was already late & the Borders was across the parking lot from Target (where I'd just bought the babygift). So I waltz into the Borders, march up to the computer & enter what I thought the title was. The computer laughed at me & said, "No, dear, that's an old Anne Stuart book. Try again." I realize I'll have to look another time when a clerk walks up & asks if he can help. Now I have to admit a)I don't know the title & b)I don't know the author, but I do know that it's red, has vampires & is a romance. The clerk & I share a laugh after I tell him he won't know what it is either & I'll just return another day & aren't customers like me annoying?

Meantime daughter has disappeared deep into the graphic novel section. As I wander in search of her, I turned a sharp corner & there they were- faced out on a display shelf right in front of me. Hooray! Mission accomplished.

BTW- I've read fifty pages & it's great! Thanks, Tara!

Red cover that I loved--must be Dark Lover, would like to hear your thoughts.

I was wondering what book you meant too, but then I figured - Dark Lover. I really liked it, which surprised me since I usually don't "do" vampire books.

Hello ##NAME##, what a great blog! I can't believe the fantastic ideas you come up with! My diaper cakes site is a little off your topic but something
I believe you may find interesting. I was searching for diaper cakes when I stumbled across your site. Keep up the creative thinking and I will be back to check this out again. Let's say a prayer for our boys in Iraq and hope for the best.

With a newborn on the way, I'm checking baby blogs for all the advice I can get. I'm also on the lookout for any baby products which might come in handy. One thing I really surprised my wife with was a diaper cake that I found on the web. She never expected anything like that from me! Here's where I got mine - diaper cake
