Europe Countdown

We leave for London in a week!!!
I was thinking about how at comic con I ran into an Irish boy and batted my eyes at him & how I think I am going to be doing a lot of eye blinking next week. This should make Mimi happy because she seems to think I blink like Zooey or at least how Summer does in that scene about the Summer effect in 500 Days of Summer.

First up is London
Then we are off to Paris

Then we head over to be sucked into a Scottish Vacuum of Charm

Man it doesn't even seem real.

Best Friends Are We My Sister And Me

A bosom friend - an intimate friend, you know - a really kindred spirit to whom I can confide my inmost soul.-- Lucy Maud Montgomery (Anne of Greengables)
When sisters stand shoulder to shoulder, who stands a chance against us? ~Pam Brown
Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their power, which no subsequent connections can supply - Jane Austen It's hard to be responsible, adult and sensible all the time. How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own. ~Pam Brown

You know full as well as I do the value of sisters' affections to each other; there is nothing like it in this world. ~ Charlotte Bronte

I could never love anyone as I love my sister. ~ Louisa May Alcott

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost. ~Marion C. Garretty
Words can not express the love I have for my sister Debbie & what her friendship means to me but I am lucky she is so amazing that I know no words are needed she feels it too. Happy Birthday sis.

It must have been fate

Stephanie Perkins is having a giveaway and look and how wonderful it is. Go here and enter. Mimi & I saw this P&P it might have been while in line to meet Scott Westerfeld and both wanted it. Stephanie is right who cares if I already have two copies of P&P I still want this one as well.
I am pretty sure I love Stephanie Perkins and it has nothing to do with the giveaway.
I briefly met Stephanie Perkins at Project Book Babe and after found her blog and started following it. It is one of my favorite blogs she is always cracking me up and filling my need for HBM (hot British males). Some may or may not know that a few years back Mimi & I decided that we needed British boyfriends and planned to go to the UK our theme became "UK All The Way". Back in October I was thinking about how much I love the french language (see post) and thought what I really need is a British boyfriend who speaks french. Then I remembered that Stephanie's book which comes out this year takes place in Paris & I was pretty sure her hero was British as well. I made sure to verify and it is true he is British and speaks french, oh la la! And now Mimi, Chelsea & I are going to London, Paris & Scotland in 13 days. And Stephanie just got back from living in Paris this last month and her blog has given us all sorts of good ideas of places to visit. Check out Stephanie's blog it is a grand time & with her book coming out it is going to start getting extra exciting!

As part of the give away Stephanie asked to put one or more of your favorite kissing scenes, I loved hers on her blog and decided to add a few more.

Dear Frankie (oh the sexual tension)

Never Been Kissed (you might want to skip to the 4 min. mark)

Pushing Daisies

Practical Magic (this is really bad quality)

There is a great movie called The Magic of Ordinary Days which has a great kissing scene but alas I could not find it on youtube.
