It’s Fun Friday

Happy Friday, y’all!!

My 31st birthday was on Sunday, and what a great day it was.  I’m told that I’m the “girl who has everything,” but I disagree.  I’ve had the same responses for the past couple of years — books, gift cards, and picture frames.  While I do have a lot of books and frames, is there wrong with wanting more?  There’s just no such thing!  Below are my top four favorite birthday gifts!  Take a look and see how awesome they are!

Barnes & Noble Gift Card!

Gift cards from B & N are the perfect gift for anyone!  Who can do wrong with a gift card from the world’s greatest bookstore?  (My hubby might disagree because of the amount of books we have in our house, but I just can’t help myself!)  Having a gift card is the best gift to give a writer because not only do they get to pick out what they want, if gives you the opportunity to pick out something you don’t already have.

Crystalline USB Pen!

I was shopping with my mom one day when I saw this, and I loved it!  All writers need pens and a USB, which is also known as a universal serial bus, (thanks, babe – ha, ha, ha!), so this is a necessary item.  If you’re on the go a lot and work with a laptop during the week, but want to stay home and write on your desk top, then why not have a pen with a USB?  I know I’ll be using this a lot more when my office is ready!  Now, if I could only not misplace this pen.  (Wish me luck on that one).

Leather iPad Pillow!

What would I do without my iPad?  Really, I don’t know how I lived without it!  I read a lot, especially when I’m reading for a review.  When I’m home I read on the couch, and I before I go to sleep I read in bed.  Many of you know how reading on the iPad can be difficult.  Well, this is the perfect solution!  It’s an amazing difference at how comfortable it makes using the iPad!  Try it, and I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Customized iPhone Case!

You might remember what my husband gave me last year for my 30th birthday.  (HERE is that blog post).  Well, for the second year in a row, my husband gave me something that I love, love, love — LOVE!  Here’s a picture of it, but trust me, the picture doesn’t do it justice!  (The picture doesn’t show that the phone case is my signature purple!)  It’s simply perfect!

 Well, as you can see, I had a great birthday!  Here’s to being 31, and so far, it’s not too shabby!

If you’re a writer, what are some of your favorite gifts you’ve received for your birthday?

While writing your ROMANCE or CHICK LIT novels, haven’t you ever daydreamed that you’re the Heroine and your boyfriend or husband is your Hero in your book?   Have you played the part in your own sex fantasy, only to wish you could have him right at that moment, but it’s the middle of the day and he’s at work?  (I have this fantasy often when I’m writing, and find it very helpful during a sex scene!)

Well, if you’re too shy to write you and your SO (significant other) into your book, I have just the right thing for you.  For Christmas I got my husband our own romance/erotic novel, “Safari Nights,” thanks to a website called UStarNovels!  If you go to this website, you can create your own books from the following categories: Romance, Classics, or Vampire.  All you have to do is fill out questions that the website will ask you each about, and then you’re done!  (If you got this as a gift, all you have to do is register it and it’ll be free).  It’s that easy!  My husband and I haven’t filled out the answers yet, but I’m hoping to sit him down and answer them this weekend.

This can be a wonderful gift, whether it’s given for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Anniversaries, Bachelorette parties, or just because, it’s a fun way to bring something new and spicy to your relationship!

I hope you and your SO have a sizzlin’ weekend!  Happy Friday!
