Armchair BEA- Intro Post

Last year I watched Twilight for the first time, I knew nothing about it up until the moment I saw it on TV and decided to watch it. Yes, I was living in a cocoon. After I watched it I had to read the books, and the rest is history. I spoke to a friend who blogged and she introduced me to this wonderful world. I really don’t have any friends outside of the blogger world where I can ramble on about my favorite books. So I love that I have been able to make so many friends who share my interest.
I am married, work full time and have two beautiful girls. I read when I have time, but not nearly as much as I would love too. I read pretty much everything, YA and Adult. In my free time I love to travel, I am thinking of planning a trip to Europe next year for my 30th.
Unfortunately, I didn’t know anything about BEA until a month ago, so I couldn’t make the trip to NY. But, next year I’ll be there. I already convinced my husband J.
I'm also on Twitter if anyone wants to chat- Neri0724
Random things about me:
  • I have an addiction to handbags/shoes/books
  • I have taken a yearly to trip to Vegas since 2008. Can’t wait to go this year J
  • I bought my first DSLR camera in November & have become addicted to trying to get a perfect shot.
  • I have one dog, who is super spoiled her name is Lilo.
  • I love music as much as books –any recommendations? Love discovering new music
  • I watch way too much TV.

  1. Hi Neri! It's been great getting to know you. I'm glad you're part of Armchair BEA this year. I'm hoping to make it to BEA next year, too.

    Trying out Cait's tip from #bookbloghelp

  2. I love the new layout Neri! It's gorgeous! Hope you enjoy Armchair BEA =] I too will be going to BEA next year-we'll have to run into each other

  3. Hi Neri! Thanks for stopping by. I just started following you and will look you up on Twitter (@melissawaldron). I wish that I could go to BEA, but know that that is not going to happen any time soon, so I will continue to enjoy Armchair BEA. Have a great week!

  4. I love your photos. I would love to have a DLSR, but alas, I still work with my point and shoot. My photography has kind of taken a backseat to reading and blogging. I need to pick it back up or I'm never going to get any better!

  5. I'd love to go to New York, but the money is just not there! I got to pick one excursion and this year, it's going to be DragonCon. I am so excited. My best book-friend and I have been planning for months! Thanks for visiting my blog this morning. --In enjoyed reading about you too... all that's missing is a picture of you!

  6. I’m right there with you on the handbag and shoe addiction….and that yearly vegas trip sounds like a blast! When are you going? I get to go to vegas this summer for a wedding. Anyhow, armchair BEA seems like it will be pretty fun. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  7. I watch tv way too much, but it has cut down since blogging. I so want to go to Vegas, just once would be fine with me. :-) happy to find your blog and add to my list of blogs I follow. Hope to stay connected.

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! That just goes to show how well I know my state...I've never heard of Ski Beech! haha, but now I know why! It's on the west side.

    I learn something new everyday! :)

  9. Many of my real life friends don't read as well.. that's what makes blogging so great! Handbags, shoes and books... PERFECT. Also, I'm jealous of your DSLR camera. I'm really big into Adele right now and I absolutely would recommend Regina Spektor to any person I see. "Folding Chair" is my favorite song of hers. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  10. Ha! I'm going next year, too! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and have a wonderful Armchair BEA!!!

  11. Lovely photos. Unless I'm ill or traveling (and don't have access to the internet), I post a review each and every day. Come learn more about me and my blog.

  12. Hey doll!! Great pics, they're beautiful!! Hopefully I will be at BEA next year too! Be awesome to meet you :)

  13. Hi, Neri ~ Great intro post. Loved the pictures! I have a serious obsession with shoes and handbags also (and jewelry). My husband has threatened to move me to a separate closet if I don't stop buying new ones...he does not understand the concept of "a threat". :0)

    Have fun this week! Looking forward to visiting again soon ~

  14. Hi Neri (I LOVE your name, by the way)! It's so nice to get to meet you. I love the photos you took; looks like you're having a blast with your DSLR! I got my first DSLR last year, and went crazy with it. Lol. I'll see you around Armchair BEA!

  15. Hey,

    Aww i love New York. If you do the trip to Europe you should come to Manchester. It's the place to be.
