A Tuesday List of Happy Things

Twitter was all a flitter last night with...unhappiness. And I want to talk about it, and yet, I really don't. Because, as I told someone there yesterday, where our focus goes, energy flows. And I'm not sure I want to fuel the fire anymore.

So, instead, you get a list of happy things.

Happy Thing #1 that I did yesterday - I made cupcakes with my friend Suzanne Young. Her novel, THE NAUGHTY LIST, comes out early February and it is really fun and cute. Teens are going to eat this one up, I'm telling you!

Happy Thing #2 - Tomorrow night, I'm going to THIS, making me the best mom in the entire universe for one whole day. Here's a picture for those who don't like clicking over:

Happy Thing #3 - Yesterday it was confirmed that S&S is sending me to the great state of Texas in April for the Texas Library Association conference, where I will be on a panel with two amazing verse authors. They are the authors of these books:

Yes, can you believe it? Sonya Sones and Ellen Hopkins, and uh, me! Pinch me, please???

What happy things are going on in your neck of the woods?


  1. lucky! i loved what my mother doesn't know! we read it in one night :D umm happy things? Well... going to the far this weekend would be one i guess :)

  2. Wow, those are some wonderful "happy things." Now I wish I lived in Texas--and that is one state that I never thought I'd say that about :)

    Hmm...happy things for me...

    I won a copy of New Dawn on Janette Rallison's blog--and I never win anything! (Still can't stop smiling about that)

    And I finally got enough followers on my blog to host my first blog contest (course, now I have to give away one of my precious books so it's happy and sad).

    None of that is as exciting as your things, but take what you can get, right?

  3. Hi Lisa :)
    Those cupcakes look delicious.
    We just had Thanksgiving and I got to be with my children for 4 whole days. That made me very happy.
    All the best,
