What I've Been Up To...

Hey all. Sorry I haven't been around the blog much lately. Life has been, shall I say, a bit CRAZY lately. A good crazy. Just crazy.

Here's what I've been up to...

With the help of some good friends, we threw my husband Mike a surprise party for his 30th birthday. We did a "leaving the roaring 20s" theme. People dressed up, and we had lots of food, drinks, and gambling. Fun was had by all. Here are a few pictures:
Fun decor for the party!
Mike, me, and our friends Rachel and Jon, who hosted the party.

 Also, Mike and I visited my grandparents in south Texas. It was a nice trip -- and relaxing!
My grandpa and I by the Rio Grande. Mexico is in the background.
In the world of writing, I sent my book draft off to a few critique partners. I'm racing toward a June 1 deadline to get the book to my agent. Here's hoping -- and praying -- it's almost ready to send into the hands of editors soon after that!

Your Turn: What have you been up to lately? I've missed you all!! 


  1. Hey Linz,

    I've missed seeing you here, but I knew you were busy. :) What a great party idea! You guys look cute.

    I've been busy with life as I know in my roles of wife and mom. Working through pre-teen angst with boys. Not so fun. I also had emergency surgery a little less than 2 weeks ago, but I've recovered pretty well. I'm getting back into my writing groove, and excited about it. :) Can't wait to read your book!

  2. What fun!!!

    Sooooo, ummmm, who's your agent, again?
