Tristi Pinkston has started this new feature on her blog. I am one of the bloggers she is featuring this week, so pop over to her blog and check it out. Here is a little about Tristi: Tristi Pinkston has been blogging since 2006. On her main blog, (http://www.tristipinkston.blogspot.com) she covers everything from writing tips and the life of a published author to kid funnies, spiritual thoughts, and embarrassing moments. She also has a weight loss blog, one for writing challenges, another for her fictional characters … and she lost count of how many others she has. You can find the links for them on her sidebar.
Tristi is the author of five published novels and a whole kit ‘n caboodle of unpublished novels. Right now she’s focusing on cozy mysteries, although she has written historical fiction in the past and plans to write more in that genre. She works as a freelance editor, online writing instructor, and a virtual book tour coordinator. She loves taking long naps, being charmingly annoying, and watching good movies. She’s a Mormon, a homeschooler, a Cubmaster, and most of the time, a headless chicken.
I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Tristi yet, but I am hoping someday to meet her down here in Phoenix. I recommend her books to anyone that likes to read, all of her books are available on http://www.amazon.com/.
Saturday I braved the crowds at Arrowhead Mall, to attend the Lego Store Grand Opening.
There were long lines, and because the store is very small no one could enter until someone left.
The boy (about 9 years old) who was behind me was very displeased about having to wait. He spent the whole time screaming, "If I don't get to go in RIGHT now, I AM GOING TO DIE! I just know everyone is going yo buy all the Legos before I can get in." I have to admit, even though I could have let his family go in front of me, I didn't. I decided to let him learn a little patience.
These are a few of the things I bought.
Out on the Mall there was a giant Woody made of Legos.
And they had a building event. Its lines were every bit as long.
There were trays of Legos that the kids could play with
or they could build a piece to go on the 8 foot tall Yoda that was being built.
It was a fun event, although I think It would have been more fun with Hunter.
Welcome to my blog. The thoughts and opinions here are strictly my own.My parents signed me up for my 1st book club before I was born. I have always loved books and reading.The 1st LDS Fiction I read was Added Upon by Nephi Anderson when I was 10. At the time it was the very best LDS Fiction had to offer. It has greatly improved over the past few years. I read as much as I can in my spare time.I grew up in Massachusetts, went to High School at Algonquin Regional High School, and college at Utah State University.I have lived in Michigan, Massachusetts & Utah.I currently live in Phoenix, AZ where I work full time as a Patient Care Advocate, and I make ties to order in my spare time.If you see a tie you would like to order, or need something special for an occasion contact me at Primarymary2@gmail.com. Please keep in mind, I made all of my ties in cotton, and have to be tied. They can be made in many different sizes up to Adult, but please check for fabric availability.
