Friday Fabulous! (14) + The Miles Between Winners

Things to get excited about this week:

1. Random.org helped me select the five winners of ARCs of THE MILES BETWEEN by Mary E. Pearson. They are MJ (instant winner), Trish, Zibilee, Amee, and Maya Ganesan. Congrats! Please send me an e-mail at lenoreva at hotmail dot com with your mailing address and I'll pass them on to the publisher.

2. So far three awesome authors have promised to send me bookmarks to distribute to my giveaway winners. Hopefully I'll hear from some more of you soon!

3. Daniel got his color proofs for IS YOUR BUFFALO READY FOR KINDERGARTEN? and they are looking amazing. I am so excited for this book, even if it is still a YEAR away from the pub date. I can't wait until I can finally show off the cover!

4. I don't normally do a write-up on awards I'm given anymore, but the ever-amusing Sadako made her own - The Evil Pink Unicorn Award - and it is remarkable enough to rival The Zombie Chicken Award, so I just had to express my thanks publicly.

Here's what it's for: The Evil Pink Unicorn sees all, knows all, and spears all annoying teddy bears who get too close to her essential pinkness. She also commends good bloggers for being hilarious, bizarre, and just plain fun.

All together now: Awww!

5. Is it a good thing that I apparently spent enough money at Sephora this year to acheive their super-exclusive VIB (Very Important Beauty Insider) status? Hmmm....

6. Going to a wedding this weekend in Brussels so you won't see me on Twitter until Sunday evening. Don't have too much fun without me ;)

#5: Nah that's not bad at all. I don't have a Sephora near me, but the last time I went I spent so much money that I filled up my beauty points twice and got two deluxe samples. *Shakes head* That store is like crack!
