Celebrate the small things and Express Yourself

Celebrate the Small Things is the fun weekly meme hosted by Viklit @ Scribblings of an Aspiring Author, where bloggers share things they wish to celebrate, and then hop around to other bloggers to rejoice in their celebrations, too. :) Go HERE to sign up and join the celebration!

*One of my critique partners books came out on Monday. Laurelin Paige's Forever With You. I love this series!

*Last week, on a windy and snowy day, my license, debit card, shopping list, and coupons flew out of my hand in the grocery store parking lot. I scrambled to pick everything up, but never found my license. I ordered a new one, but I'm praying that a good soul will turn in/mail my license. That may not seem like something to celebrate... so what am I celebrating with this? That I was, at least, able to recover my card! 

*I'm doing a revise on one of my projects. This time, it feels right. Like, these suggestions and changes are for the best, and it's what is needed to make this story shine.

It's also EYM time ... the weekly meme that I co-host with Dani. Each week, we come up with a question/topic of some sort for other bloggers to share. Please join us HERE!

This weeks topic:  What movie/s are you wanting to watch in theaters in 2014?

The LEGO movie
The Amazing Spiderman 2
X-Men: Days of Future Past
The Fault in Our Stars
Mockingjay Part 1
Vampire Academy

Those are the ones I hope to see in theaters. 
My younger boys are excited to see The LEGO movie and Spiderman, and I love taking them to the movies!
I cannot wait to see Augustus and Hazel on the big screen in The Fault in Our Stars. I finished reading this book last week and LOVED it.

What movies are you wanting to see this year in theaters?


  1. Hope you find your driver's license!! But you know, it would be a great scene in a book :-) Just saying....

  2. I'm glad you were able to recover your card. Crossing my fingers that someone turns in your license, too.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I bet you'd rather have lost the shopping list. Good luck with your revisions!

    1. Thanks, Laura! I so hope to be finished by Feb. 1st. That's my goal.

  4. Losing the debit card would've been worse.
    I'm looking forward to a lot of movies this year!

    1. I agree. That would have been a pain trying to cancel it and getting a new one, all the while worrying if money was taken out. :/

  5. So glad you recovered your credit card! What a day that must have been for you!

    1. Me, too! It was eventful, to say the least. LOL

  6. Hi Jackie, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  7. Glad you recovered your card!!!

  8. Hi, sounds like a great list of movies. I want to see all of these too. Glad you were able to recover your card. Hope you find your license. Good luck with your revisions too. ;)

  9. Good luck with the revisions. I'm doing that now myself. I can't wait until my little guy has the attention span to sit through a movie!


Comments make me happy. So do photos of Adam Levine... <3
