You Know You're Grown Up When...

...Just seeing the box for your new Shark Rocket Powerhead is exciting.
 
BlogHer15 had lots of giveaways and one that I was especially interested in was sponsored by my friends at Shark. I'd been reading about the Shark and friends had recommended it. I was delighted to find out that I was one of the winners of the giveaway. I sent the needed tweets to Shark and settled in to enjoy the rest of the summer. I didn't forget about my Shark, but it was well in the back of my mind. Until today...

 My floors and I thank you, Shark!
 
 
When I was in elementary school I always replied "toys," when I was asked what I would like for my birthday or Chanukah. When I got to Junior High, books and clothes were at the top of my list. They're probably still at the top of my list, but I'm loving my new vacuum. This is definitely not the gift I would have asked for in years past, but it's the gift the grown Buttercup is thrilled to receive. Thanks, friends at Shark.
 
My new vacuum wasn't my only surprise this week. My sweet goddaughter, J., sent me a copy of "The One that Got Away" by Bethany Chase. It looks terrific and I can't wait to read it and then share it in a giveaway next week to formally kick-off "Fiction Friday." My goal for the rest of this year is to write about one novel every Friday. Fiction lovers, hope you will stop by.
 
Our first "Fiction Friday" giveaway next week features "The One that Got Away." 
 

 
It's a beautiful autumn day in New York. I'm feeling much better and was able to enjoy being outside this morning. I'm still barking, but much less and my energy is coming back. So glad and grateful to be more of my peppier self. 
 
 
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a terrific Thursday!
