two for the price of one

Two posts in one day–I must have a lot of time on my hands. Wanted to comment on some of y’all’s comments, because they were all so thoughtful and insightful.

Before I forget, here’s the link you non-Cedarville gals wanted: Inspire

Beth Elaine–Thanks. I’m glad your mom liked the book. And for the record, you DO know me. And for the other record, not only do I not look as cute in real life as I do on the book cover, I’m not as cool in real life as I am on xanga. It’s kind of like Paul, who wrote that his letters were all big and important-sounding, but when people met him in real life, they were a bit disappointed. 🙂

Kimmy–You mustn’t let the Anne books irritate you. They are fabulous through and through. But yes, the first 2 or 3 are my favorite.

Jess–You should get beauticontrol to do an Anne Shirley line. 🙂

Julie–Nice to meet you. Kim(berly) has nothing but praise for you. Really. 🙂 I think it was God’s sovereignty that led you to my site so you’d read the rest of the books and watch the movie. 🙂

Kristen–You don’t get Inspire? You poor deprived little thing. 🙂 Here’s a link where you can request a copy. If you don’t have a daughter, you can borrow mine. They’re watching Anne AGAIN right now.

Kristin–Are you sure that makes you sound savvy and popular? On-line friends makes me think desperate and pedophilic. 🙂

Lendy–That is so awesome that your baby has “Anne” as a middle name. Did you read Hoffmom’s comment on my last post? She says the books are awesome, but that you should definitely watch the movie, too. I agree wholeheartedly.

Maren–You’re so cute. Bye!

Sarah–Blog about some of those fake announcements. 🙂  I want to go to CABO!!

Hoffmom–Yes, I’ve read all 8 books. Multiple times. I might just have to take a couple on our vacation. Or not… This is supposed to be “family” time, not “get lost in Avonlea” time. 🙂

Krista–I’ll play Anne with you anytime–and I’ll let you be Anne!

H–I cannot believe you just watched Anne–the same time as us! Toooooo crazy!

J-me–Yes, I’m white. And my hair is…I just asked Gabe what color it was and he just shrugged…then said light brown. I’ll post a recent pic of me sometime to clear up the confusion.

Gotta go watch Anne of Avonlea with my girlies!

    You can autograph it for me if you would like!!:) but I’m not sure at the moment if I will give it to my daughter or daughter-in-law.  I’m going to read one first!:)  Thanks so much.

    Hi!  I hope you don’t mind me leaving you a comment.  I read your article in Inspire and I just ordered a copy of your book from your website.  I can’t wait to get it and read it.  My husband and I are Cedarville alums.  He graduated, I attended one year.  Best wishes with your book!

    One more thing. Just read the Inspire article. It was great. I love that they added on the ToC that a book signing = exciting (LOL). But the article reminds me of my current battle with pride. Thanks for that, and for the privilege of counting you (and so many of these other gals) among my friends.

    By the way, I didn’t know you’d done a stint in the middle school classroom. I taught 7th grade for 4 years. Small world.

    I just refer to y’all as my friends. Period. I don’t think it matters where we met. Or how recently.

    Thanks for the link to article. I am a Cedarville native, but I came to Kentucky for college, met the Kentucky boy (he’s a charmer) and never left. So I would have missed the opportunity to see the different hair without the link. 😉

    ^ Me too! ^

    I’m going to highlight that part and put it up on my fridge!

    along with my announcement of my three kids and my 10-month “anniversary” with my boyfriend.

    “desparate and pedophilic”  Ha!  Maybe I’ll have to restate.  By the way, loved the article and that I “got” the mention of those xanga girls.  Felt quite special. 😛

    My mother always insisted I WAS an Anne. She said everything about the books and the movies reminded her of me. But reading your entry regarding this makes me think we could very well be kindred spirits…bosom buddies…have you ever watched the six hour long Pride & Prejudice? It’s the other mother-daughter bonding movie we watch repeatedly. 🙂

    i loved anne also growing up. i haven’t seen that in years! i don’t know if my daughet would like that yet. i will have to check out the inspire article. although i am not an alumni myself, i have a lot of family history at that school it might even be xanga worthy since so many of you read my site are actually alumni! i’ll check out your article today:)

    I caught the Nixie influence, too, LOL!
    That is a very cool alumni mag. I wish ours had more stuff by alumni and more of a spiritual slant.
    Never read or watched Anne of GG. I liked Pollyanna and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, though. Do they compare?

    2 for the price 1 = bargain.  I found the link to Inspire, no need to send it now – should have just read the 2/2 post….
