Sunday Salon: Happy Easter!

I have turned into a very last minute kind of person. Yesterday, I decided to invite a cartload of people to my house for Easter dinner. Yes, Easter is today and I invited 12 extra people to my house for a meal I've never cooked before. Spur of the moment or totally nuts? You decide. Only 10 of them are coming (yeah, I know, *only* 10 extra people sounds sort of ridiculous, doesn't it?). So between shoehorning my kids out of bed for church and cooking a meal for 15, I don't suspect my book reading will be terribly high on the list (good thing I already got up at 6 this morning in order to assemble Easter baskets for my three and to hop down the bunny trail--aka toss some eggs into the bushes for them to find this morning--not that this was planned to be quite that last minute, but still turned out that way). I have had a pretty good reading week so one day without probably won't kill me.

Check in tomorrow when I post giveaways for 5 copies each of Jantsen's Gift by Pam Cope, Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch, and The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson. And a Happy Easter to all and sundry!


  1. Happy Easter, Kristen! I gave you an award on my blog.

  2. I just found your blog via Wendy at Caribou's Mom. I have enjoyed looking around at previous postings and look forward to following you in the future.

    Happy Easter!

  3. Happy Easter Kristen! You are quite brave inviting those extra people to dinner!

  4. Happy Easter!

    My niece Amanda has figured out that her parents are the Easter Bunny. I asked about my house. She said I woke up early and did the boys' baskets too. So I looked at her and said, utterly deadpan, "You think *I* WAKE UP EARLY to do something like that? As in, get out of bed in the wee hours of the morning?" And she got all concerned, because clearly it is much easier to believe in a giant rabbit scattering candy across the globe.

    Now she thinks my sister must be the easter bunny for my house too.

  5. Happy Easter, Kirsten! I hope you have a great Easter dinner, despite the last minute preparations.


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
