News From My Trip (The Thank-You's Are A'Rollin')

Well, everyone! I was hoping I'd get a chance to post about my FBLA nationals trip day to day to keep all of you informed (whether you wanted to know or not), but unfortunately that couldn't happen. I didn't know I could survive 7 days without internet, and believe me, it was hard. Good thing I had some reviews already scheduled to post for your entertainment.

News from My Trip
Everyone, you are looking (metaphorically speaking) at one of the five members of the parliamentary procedure team that placed 5th in the nation. (granted, first would have been great, but still... fifth is pretty bomb).

Unfortunately, our candidate for FBLA National President didn't win. We were all sad.

BUT our Business Ethics team placed 8th in the nation. We're all very proud of them.

I'm just glad to be back home (with my good food... sorry, Georgia, but nothing can take the place of good cajun cooking).

So I'm Extending a Thank You...
Thanks to all of you who in some way wished me good luck with nationals! I really appreciated it. I liked knowing that you (well... some of you) come here for things other than book reviews and/or contests.

Thanks, Dominique, for being patient with my whole internet-connection problem as I got back to you about your prize.

My boyfriend gets a pretty big thanks, also. He checked every day to make sure your posts came out like they were supposed to. And, he's the one that's been responding to my emails (which I found out that I really can't live without) during my brief trip away from the world of internet.

A HUGE thanks to Chelsea (you might care to think of her as The Page Flipper) for being such an awesome person and helping me let you guys know that I couldn't post Linda's guest blog when it was scheduled.

And What's Coming Up?
I would have sworn to you before the trip that I would have all of my books that I brought with me read by the end of the trip. Well... that's not the case. I did, however, manage to read The Year of Disappearences, so let's keep an eye out for that review soon.

Possibly two guest blogs this week will be gracing the pages of From the Corner of Megan's Mind to make up for the lack of one last week.

What's this? There's a new group of bloggers surfing the blogosphere... that's right! Yours truly has joined those that run a blog called Genre of the Month. Check it out!

I did come home to find that I got books in the mail (yay, books!), so you've got a few more reviews to look forward to.

AND.... mystery contest numero 2 might be lurking around the corner.... so keep an eye out!

Aww, I wish my bf would do stuff like that for me.
