Thanks for having me on your blog today, Sarah!

Calisa Rhose said...

Allergic to chocolate... that sucks! My oldest dd doesn't LIKE it! I swear she's NOT mine! lol Adopted??

I love Criminal Minds too. Every time I watch the epi when Hodges's wife gets murdered I cry. I cry more when Jack comes out of the chest and says "I helped you on a case, Daddy!" *sniff, sniff*

Love your book cover for this one. You're doing great jumping back in the writing water, Lilly. Missed you.

That episode makes me cry too, Calisa. And there is something wrong with your son, lol. I love chocolate. I MISS chocolate. I'm allergic to phenolformaldehyde derivatives. A type of phenol is in chocolate. It's the natural ingredient that makes it heart healthy. Eventually, I became hypersensitive after years of exposure. Every time I smell chocolate, I remember what it tastes like. Then I have to go eat a white Reeces Cup so I'm not tempted. lol!

Loved your answers, Lily! Favorite animal: Man. Good one! But I'm still sad you can't eat chocolate. My dad can't either. Bummer. Hope you have a great weekend!

Lilly Gayle said...

Thanks AJ. Went out to lunch with my youngest daughter, went shopping, and then stopped by a drive through Starbucks on the way home. Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Joya said...

Great post, Lilly! Love the idea of watching Lifetime/Hallmark movies all day and staying in pajamas.
Maybe one day one of those movies will be based on a book of yours. :)
Keep up the great work.

Lilly Gayle said...

From your lips to God's ear, Joya! Thanks for stopping by.

Katherine said...

Wow! Love your summary twitter style. It hooked me. I'm off to add WHOLESALE HUSBAND to my Kindle as soon as I finish typing this.

I'm not much of a chocolate eater but I can't imagine not being able to eat it when the occasional urge strikes. Now, never being able to eat Cheez-Its again, that would be torture.

I'm sorry to hear you can't have Chocolate. But Happy Valentine's Day. Your book sounds like a good read.
