BTT and Friday Fill-In - July 18


Do you buy books while on vacation/holiday?

Do you have favorite bookstores that you only get to visit while away on a trip?

What/Where are they?


I have been known to drop into fun-looking used book stores if I pass one while on vacation. I found a real gem when we went to Charlottesville, Virginia two years ago. There was another great one in Banff, Canada that I found on our honeymoon. Since we typically always go to new places on vacations, I don't have favorite bookstores I visit while away.

 

1. If I could be a fly on the wall I would be at Woodstock. Except it was outside and there were no walls. So, maybe I would be a fly on the wall of an Egyptian pyramid when they were being built.


2. Jealousy is different from envy.

3. When I see a shooting star my wish would be that a brand new Prius would show up in our driveway in the morning.

4. I'd rather be short than tall any day!

5. Certain songs when I hear them make me wanna dance like there's no tomorrow.

6. If time were in a bottle I would pop the cork.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to hopefully sleeping, but it looks like Maya is teething which means no one is sleeping lately, tomorrow my plans include going to an Italian Festival and Sunday, I want to organize Maya's new toy shelves from Ikea!

-me- Thanks! Actually, I am short. Most of the time, I prefer being vertically challenged. :)

Have a great weekend.

I couldn't name a favorite bookstore for the same reason--we tend to vacation in a different and new place each time. The only exception is when we are visiting family, but the bookstore choices in those towns are really no different than they are at home.

I wouldn't mind a brand new Prius. :-) I like being short myself.

Have a great weekend! Enjoy the festival.

You could be a fly on tent wall at Woodstock.

Love your answer to number 2. :)

I was thinking you could be a fly on the wall of a VW van. They were kind of an "in thing" during the hippie days. Woodstock is such a great choice.

IKEA has such cute kid stuff! I've got an adorable stuffed dragon from IKEA on the back of my futon. My kids were already too old, by the time an IKEA moved within driving distance of us (8 hours -- I think we've got one about 6 hours away, now), so I just bought him for myself.

I love Ikea too! I just went to the Tokyo one with a friend a couple of weeks ago.
Hope you manage to get a little extra sleep somehow. :)
