Meet Nikki Maxwell! She's starting eighth grade at a new school—and her very first diary packed with hilarious stories and art in Book One of the #1New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries series!

New school. New mean girl. New crush. New diary so I can spill about all of it…

I put a lot of really personal stuff in this diary along with my sketches and doodles.

But, mostly it’s about how TRAUMATIC it was transferring to my new private middle school, Westchester Country Day.

And, how a lot of the CCP (Cool, Cute & Popular) kids were really SNOBBY and made my life TOTALLY miserable. People like, oh, I don’t know, maybe…


And, it just so happened that I got stuck with a locker right next to hers. I could NOT believe I had such CRAPPY luck. I knew right then and there it was going to be a VERY, VERY long school year :-( !

Adventures Outside the Blog with Book Lovin’ Mama + #Giveaway – March 2015


(Photo Credits & Copyrighted: FranJessca aka Book Lovin’ Mama)

This month was a crazy month of traveling for Book Lovin’ Mama and her Mr. Book Lovin’ Mama. We drove all the way to Houston, Texas for this Book Lovin’ Mama to attend training for OpCon for her company. (Let’s just say OpCon makes our lives so much easier as ITs at my company with automating processes that take us forever to do manually) It was a fun trip full of exploring Louisiana (where Mr. Book Lovin’ Mama grew up at) and exploring a part of Texas where we stayed for one week. We even got to see some of Mr. Book Lovin’ Mama’s family while we were there. Home cooked meals, crawfish, shrimp, Tex Mex…etc…was what we mostly ate during the trip. We had to stop at Jack in the Box before we left too. The last time this Book Lovin’ Mama had Jack in the Box was back in 2004, when I was in Fallon, Nevada for a month for flight ops with the squadron I was stationed at in the Navy.

The best part of the trip was this Book Lovin’ Mama didn’t pay for a single thing. Everything was covered by my company…except the hubs. He wasn’t covered under the company card, but with spending time with family we really didn’t spend that much. We even got a free room in Louisiana on the way back to home after the trip thanks to hubs best friend’s brother.

All and all…hubs and I had a week of date nights. The last time we traveled alone together was back in 2007 when we went to Atlantic City. Although, the whole entire time we were gone, we were missing our baby girls and fur babies.

Here are just some of the photos from our adventure to Louisiana and Texas. I wish we would’ve had time to visit the Rodeo in Texas, but we do plan on coming back to Texas with with the family this time.  Continue reading

I am that gash in her soul.
Once I loved Grace, really loved her.
And she loved me, and it was so fucking beautiful.
That pendulum swings to and fro.
We’re here,
and then we’re—
How can that rare beautiful be rendered irrelevant, intangible when I still feel so damn much?
Does all that energy, that glory, that significance simply dissolve?
Turn to smoke?
To nothing?
It can’t. It just can’t.
Are the moments that shape us absolutely random?
Is time not fluid?
I made promises to them, to her.
Especially to her.
Promises I still burn to keep.
