Items I won from a book auction event


I think this is my second time to be part of a book auction event. The event reached $4,860 from generous authors and bookworms. Unfortunately, Matty passed away. The money they gathered will help to support the kids and funeral cost too. I am so glad that I can help and in return received signed books, shirt and swags too.

I helped $80 in total. In return, I received seven signed books, signed shirt and signed swags as well.

All my books that I ordered from Amazon were all arrived.  There are eight authors in this file. I also pre-ordered and paid some books from the other authors. I am thankful that I have job so I can buy all of these books. I am so thankful that my husband supports my being bookworm.

This is my very first time book signing event to attend in Canada. My husband is off and I took the day off from work so I can attend this exciting book signing event.

My very first book signing event in Canada

I am very excited to go to Canada next month for a book signing event. I am so excited that one of my favorite author Ms. Chelle Bliss is attending. I really adore and loved her books. I have read most of her books. Meeting her in person is a dream come true for a book reader like me.

We have this shirt available to order for the said event. I ordered mine but need to send it back. The design of the shirt is beautiful. I do not like the size and it is way too big on me. I am very excited to get a different style and size. It should be there before the book event.

My husband will drive me to Canada. I am not sure if two of my kids will come with us. I know that my daughter will come. She is always my side kick with the book events I attended in our local library. She even wanted to own her shirt from the said event.

How to have the fun after the book signing

I really wanted to buy the VIP ticket from the book signing event. It is not much but I know that my husband will not allow me to attend the party after book signing in Canada. I bet it would be so much fun hanging out with the readers and the authors as well. I love music especially if the host has this accessory like the dj setup check it out at GuitarCenter. You can grove at the same time having the best time if your life.

Where to find the perfect wedding dresses in Toronto

It has been 13 years since I married the love of my life. I was 28 years old when I said I do and spend the rest of my life through thick and thin with him. Being married to a man who is 12 years and half older than you is a challenge. Through it all we made it and now blessed with two kids now. Life is not full of happiness but surprises as well. I am thankful to God for blessing me a wonderful man, hard worker and the best father to my kids. I could not ask for more.

The only regret I had been not marrying at the church. I hope someday I can still walk the aisle with him. Church wedding is one of my wish list though it is sad that my Dad is not around anymore to walk in the aisle with me. I hope my son does if that event will happen. I wanted that to happen in the Philippines as well so my Mom can see me.

Finally I have my own bookshelves

I keep on asking my hubby to buy me my bookshelf for my books. I used to keep my books in my kids bookshelves. I want my own. We went to the store. He does not like the ones that are sale. He said it looks cheap. Instead he wants to make me my own bookshelves. He asks me where do I want to put it. I want near the ceiling. Hubby said it is way too high for me to reach my books.

What he did was remove the mirror on my dresser. He said we do not use that mirror because we have two in our bathroom. He removed the mirror and build my bookshelves. It is a perfect spot. It is not in the way. I am so happy. Finally I have my own bookshelves where I can keep all my books. He built three shelves. It is almost full of books already.

The fist shelves are all the signed books that I won from the giveaway. Also books that were signed that I reviewed from the book club. The second shelves are books that I bought. The third shelves are books that I reviewed and not signed. I am so happy that my books are safe, protected and displayed beautiful in our room.

Hubby spent more money if we buy the ones in the store. I loved this the most because he built it for me. I told him that it is my best birthday and Christmas gifts. He just smiled and glad that he made me happy.

The author’s name is Ms. Ariel Lawhon for her book “The Wife The Maid and The Mistress“. It is a suspense and mystery book. It is y second favorite genre to read. I will start reading it today. By tomorrow night, I will have an idea about the book. By the way, you can click the book in Amazon or check the author’s in Facebook.

The book singing is in our local library. This is where I saw the author’s book and the event. The paperback is $13. I cannot wait to meet the author and ask her to sign the book. I LOVED signed books. It makes it even more special when you meet the author in person.

This is my second time to meet an author. I also have a signed book from the first author. She is a local author and lived not far from me. How about you? Have you meet an author before? Have you attend a book signing?

Let the baking begin

Well if you are broad-minded, then you will get what I mean.  I won this Wartenberg Wheel with a mask from a  giveaway. It is from Fifty Shades Of Grey group in Facebook. If you are a fan of Ms. E. L. James books, Fifty Shades Trilogy, then you know what I am trying to say. I know that some people are not a fan of her books. I respect you for that.

I cannot wait to try this. We just need to find the right time. I already showed it this to the husband, his eyes sparkles. He said he cannot wait to play. Intimacy is so important with every relationship especially for married couple. Spicing it up is fun and pleasurable. Let the baking begin.
