Yes, I am a WONDERFUL shopper. I know...I know...something to be TOTALLY PROUD of, RIGHT? *giggle* I'm good at other things as well, but I honestly LOVE to shop! I think it's an addiction. Isn't that horrible? I've been trying to find my mother something ALL week for Mother's Day. I won't put what I've been thinking of seriously getting her, because I know she checks my blog and is totally NOSEY! *HA-HA MOM*!! NO CLUES HERE...

So, the bad part, and I can't even believe I'm admitting this (outloud)... I've done more shopping for myself than ANYONE else! I mean, I deserve nice things too *at least that's what I keep telling myself* AND I'm buying and I pay all my bills online so that's kind of "GOING GREEN". LOL Where do I come up with this? I hear myself say it after and then I question myself ... totally NOT GOOD!

Anyway, I need Mother's Day ideas...other than books. I know which ones she wants. But, if you have any that I may there's another story. I am really looking for a good Fairy Tale that I haven't read yet! That would be so WONDERFUL! I do have MANY MANY BOOKS to review and pass on to all of you! Interested? I KNOW you, stay tuned and stop back. I have a few to post and a little give-a-way to talk about. (See Below)!

Now I'm off again to online shop! Wish me some serious luck!

Good Morning Monday!!

Happy Monday Everyone!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! OK...So, I'm a little excited! Yes, I know I get excited over the tiniest of things,'s not SO tiny that I've been blogging here for over a year. And while I was away in the hospital for some of that time, I still consider it a sort of Blog-a-versary!

I've been trying to get caught up with all of my friend's blogs and I got to finally *see* what some of you look like thanks to TRISH. She was at the book festival and I'm SO jealous! Because she took such wonderful videos, I felt like I was there (in part anyway)!

Back to the "Happy Blog-A-Versary" to me ... I have decided to give away one of the beautiful bracelets that you see below made by the very talented *Lizzy Bleu* over at her etsy shop! I just need to think of the WHAT we should do? *to determine the winner* and the HOW long we should make it last? I've been thinking and thinking but...I'm up for any ideas that you may have .... SO, if you've got any, feel free to email me @IAmHiMaintenance at Aol dot Com! I'd LOVE to hear from you! : )

Oh...and Mother's Day is coming up this Sunday and I still haven't gotten mom anything yet...So, for the time being, I'm off to do one of the things that I do best *and that is SHOP*! Hope to hear from you soon and I'll be posting the contest THIS WEEK! I think the winner should have some type of choice either their name on the bracelet or just a mix of keys OR Lizzy does make different pieces such as necklaces and earrings as well. So...if there is something the winner likes better (I'm easy) and it's very possible that you can get a different item other than the bracelet! I LOVE a give-a-way! Especially when I get to pick ... *not as much as when I win*. But, you get the picture!

Oh, and the link to Lizzy Bleu's Shop again can be found .... right ... here ... lizzybleu on Etsy - lizzybleu typewriter jewelry!

We had beautiful weather here in Rhode Island last week! But, the beginning of this week doesn't look like it's going to be as nice *not at all* ... Actually, it looks like rain. Oh how I do love that smell right after it rains on a warm spring day! Maybe I'll have that to at least look forward too! If not, it's the PERFECT weather to snuggle up and READ! (with a nice cup of tea...ooooh or chai...yummy)!

Well...enough day-dreaming, I'm off to shop! Well, online ... it IS extremely LATE or EARLY (depending on how you look at it) here on the East Coast!

Till Then...
