almost thirty

A few things I'm thinking about the night before my big birthday (perhaps my thoughts should be more introspective, but this is me we're talking about, after all!):

  • I'm several months late on this, but you should definitely check out Donald Miller's review of Love Wins. It's awesome! (The Stuff Christians Like post that led me to the review is pretty good, too.)
  • Thomas Nelson (the company behind BookSneeze) is conducting a fiction survey, and if you complete it, you'll get a free ebook. You'll also be entered in a $10,000 sweepstakes. Go here to fill out the survey.
  • While I often thought about it, I never got around to making a "30 Things Before I'm 30" list--so maybe I should do "35 Things Before I'm 35"?
  • I wish my kitties would come home. They've only been missing for about two hours, so my fears are a bit premature ... but as far as I can tell, they'd never ventured out of the yard before tonight. (I know, it's been proven that cats wander all over the place, but I'm still nervous--they're little cats!) 
  • Looking forward to Women of Faith in Omaha with my mom tomorrow night and Saturday. We splurged on a nicer hotel really close to the Qwest Center, and I can't wait to relax there after the evening session.
  • Blue Skies Tomorrow is a fantastic book (seriously fantastic), and I can't stop thinking about it--I was even thinking about it during the sermon on Sunday. And at work. And I'm still thinking about it even though I've finished it. I'll review it later this month, so keep an eye out. If you like WWII era fiction, you'll love this one!


  1. I also loved Blue Skies Tomorrow! We will have to compare reviews when they're posted! :)

    And I saw Donald Miller's review of Love Wins and totally cracked up. :)

  2. Can your list of 35 Before 35 include stuff you've already done or will you make it be 35 totally new things that you will have 5 years to complete?

  3. I'm reading Blue Skies Tomorrow and loving it! Found another author I like.

  4. @Holly, can't wait to read your review!

    @Very Sleepy Girl, I think they need to be new things--otherwise, it would be too easy to load it with things I've already done and not really challenge myself. I've got about 15 things on the list so far ...

    @JoyAnne, Sarah Sundin will definitely be on my "must read" list from now on. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a book (that wasn't written by Karen Kingsbury or Ted Dekker) this much!
