This past weekend was Readers N Ritas and I was lucky enough to attend for another year. I am going to admit that this year was a little different for me because I wasn’t staying at the hotel and was still on call for work. I did get called on Friday Night and had to leave a few times during the day on Saturday. I did not get to fully experience the Con and definitely did not get to hang with some people as much as I would have liked (Melissa, Brandy, Ali, Miranda, and Joy I am looking at you)!
What little I did get to hang out though was a total blast. This is mostly due to Elizabeth Boyle, Cathy Maxwell, Jenn LeBlanc, and my friends Jenn, Tanya, and Kelly! I haven’t read either Elizabeth or Cathy but after hanging with them that will be changed. If their writing is half as fun as they are,I am in for some fun reads! I also need to give a special shout out to Tina D! It was so great getting to see her again and thank you for letting me crash your dinner table on Saturday night 🙂

I love that this conference is local to Dallas and I get to go every year! Next year though I think I am going to stay at the hotel again so I can get the full enjoyment out of the weekend again.
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup) and Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
