New year, new us, CONFIDENCE CODE Giveaway!

Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Ladies, welcome to 2019 and we're starting the year with a bang!

The Confidence Code is more than a book, it's a doorway to kick-start your motor for 2019!
Following the success of Lean In and Why Women Should Rule the World, the authors of the bestselling Womenomics provide an informative and practical guide to understanding the importance of confidence—and learning how to achieve it—for women of all ages and at all stages of their career.

Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.

Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition—with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business—Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to "lean in."Instead, they offer the inspiration and practical advice women need to close the gap and achieve the careers they want and deserve. 

Sounds pretty amazing, right!
So do enter and share this giveaway with everyone you know.
Good luck and have a lovely new year.

Welcome readers to the Of Books December Giveaway Hop hosted by Its Starts at Midnight and FLYLÄ“F . I can't believe that it's actually December 1st, can you? Not sure what happened this year, but it zoomed by.

After completing a 3,000-mile road trip in an adventure van with a 13-year old dog who's 92 in human years (no, I am not joking and yes, it was so much fun!!!), we arrived back home in early October. Plenty of time to get ready for the holidays. 
Digging at diamonds in Arkansas

Cadillac Graveyard in Texas (Bring Your Own Paint!)

Santa Fe (fell into the 30s at night!)

Petrified Forest

Grand Canyon
Then I had a brainstorm. Why not complete a mini renovation to spruce up the home front. R-I-G-H-T-!

Well, it didn't go as planned. Hah! What renovation ever does? Covered in drywall dust, I took a break today to write this post. Unable to display our family, years-old holiday ornaments (you know the ones, child-made from the kids in elementary school) has definitely put crimp on the 'cheer.' That is until someone uncorked one of the bottles of wine we brought back from Napa Valley.

Sooooo, who says there's no cheer! Time to kick up our heels and celebrate online!
