Ascending Butterfly Holidays Buying Guide 2010, Twenty Fifth Giveaway sponsored by:



Book Club Returns!

My apologies for the long hiatus! I have been reading, but there has been so much going on lately and with our holiday buying guide running into overtime there hasn't been time to breathe! But we return with a bang with two signed copies of our Book Club Selection to give away! And a special thanks to the Author for her patience!

What Flavor Are YOU?

Of Ice Cream that is! Blizzard 2010 has me snowed in, yet I find myself thinking of Ice Cream! Yes, Ice Cream! As far as I'm concerned, anytime is a good time for Ice Cream! So what flavor are you?



The Ice Cream Theory 

This is the book you'll swear you wrote in your head! I know that's the reaction I had to it. The author Steff Descheres parallels the people in her life to flavors of Ice Cream, and juxtaposes events, relationships, friendships and lovers with a different flavor. It's a fun and lighthearted book with laugh out loud moments and insights about life that are very relatable.
My Take

This is a very enjoyable read. When you finish this book, you won't be able to refrain yourself from comparing everyone in your life to an Ice Cream Flavor! (OK so maybe I was already doing that!)
I highly recommend this book as an anytime read, but if you want to start your year on a light note, this is the book you'll want to curl up on the sofa and enjoy!

  11. I'm a follower. Hmmm, I've never considered what ice cream flavor I am! I guess I'd be Fudge Ripple (mostly vanilla/plain - with some swirls of chocolate/fun).

  12. We don't have a NYE ritual. In fact, this year, I was asleep before midnight. I was JUST so tired, you know? Plus, we try not to have rituals or traditions for the holidays - just do whatever we want to at the time!
