I have been MIA....

This is a picture of my and my award and my always supportive sister. :)


because I have been out of town at a library conference. I was planning on eating really well so I could lose 5 lbs in a week. :) Of course that didn't happen. I ate lots of crap. Every where I went there was chocolate and cookies and ice cream and yummy yummy goodness. So, of course, I ate it. I don't feel too bad about the whole thing, but of course, now I feel like I should have used some restraint. I didn't gain anything, but I didn't lose either.

I wasn't really looking forward to attending this conference, but something amazing happened. One of my co-workers (with the help and support letters of A LOT of other people) nominated me for Michigan's state award for Teen Service Librarian of The Year. I won the award. I had no idea, it was a complete and total surprise. I cried! This was a huge honor and felt amazing. I can't help but think that it was that much more amazing because I had lost weight and felt better about myself.

All and all a really amazing experience. I do however, now need to catch up on all your blogs!! Look for my comments soon!!

I totally missed you and I am not just saying that. I saw on FB that you won something, but I couldnt figure out what. THAT IS AWESOME! The whole entire state and you are the best?

I went and opened an account here at our public library and I thought of you the entire time!
