The internet seems all abuzz with people talking about what they are reading this summer and I guess that makes sense. Summer seems to be a time when things slow down and there is more time to read. There are car trips and beach trips which lend themselves perfectly to getting engulfed in a good (or trashy!) story.

Unfortunately this year it looks like I am busier than ever! Even with the break from school activities I am still a full time working lady with 3 kids and an amazing husband…and a lot of pregnant friends! This weekend alone I went to 2 baby showers! I don’t think that I am going to be dipping my tootsies in any beach sand this summer, so I am trying to to get my reading in how I can, through audio books!

I recently started using Audible about a month ago when I really wanted to “read” the Wicked series. I do a Once Upon a Time fan podcast  and the Wicked Witch and Oz were pretty important this spring I wanted to learn more about the world.

Since setting up my Audible account I have read Wicked, started The Husband’s Secret, and am nearing the end of Dogboy: Den of Thieves and it has made my commutes fly! It’s not so bad sitting in Atlanta traffic when you have something interesting to listen to.

I’ve decided to giveaway ONE free audiobook code to Audible. Enter below in the Rafflecopter (ending on June 25th). GOOD LUCK and make sure to tell me what book you are going to download.

A Dream Come True

Standard

Last weekend was AMAZING!

A) I got to spend some much needed time with some of my #PinkPeople! Atlanta is pretty spread out and many of my friends live ITP (in the perimeter) so between jobs, kids, and various commitments meet ups are tough to schedule. We made sure to make the best of our night before the crazy work began.

I ordered a Corona...it was a double!

My friends had never done Washington Apple shots...they can't say that now!

B) We raised oodles of money for the Greater Atlanta Affiliate of the Susan G Komen!! As with any event there were ups and downs, but overall we had a great Race! The rain decided to hold off until after we were done and cleaned up. So awesome participating in this event as a committee member. I can’t wait to get involved more. I am still working on getting some great pictures to share.

C) I GOT TO MEET QUEEN ELSA AND SNOW WHITE. *Squeal* As a Co-Host of Greetings from Storybrooke (A Once Upon a Time fan Podcast) this was huge! I knew that Elsa would be there, but then when I saw her show up WITH Snow White I was overwhelmed. Snow White has always been one of my favorite princesses and is probably my favorite character on OUAT! Then Sunday night was the season finale of OUAT and they introduced ELSA in the finale scene as a major character for next year. My heart was literally beating out of my chest. (Feel free to catch our episode about the finale HERE .

So awesome!! I wonder if this weekend can beat it? I have to clean 😦
