What's Going On - August Updates

Blog Updates Already Made:
We have been working on many things here lately! Like our new background, and new sidebar items like SocialVibe, Anniversary Countdown, Currently Reading, and Check These Out. We hope you will do Social Vibe and help a good cause for free and check out the amazing blogs in the Check These Out section.
We also have our first giveaway underway, the Signed Swagg Giveaway where all you need to do is email me the order in which you want the prizes.
Another great thing we've included this month is Blogfest!!!!! It's not until October, but we are officially entered and ready to roll!

Blog Updates Not Yet Made:
In the next month or so until the next update, we plan on having two more contests which you can check out on the contest page. The Summer Belongs To You is a contest where you will be required to draw Phineas, Ferb, and Isabella anywhere in the world. We have 3 prize categories and prizes are yet to be announced. The Back To School Contest will be a contest where we get ready to go back to school. I haven't decided yet what it will be, but it will most likely be a scavenger hunt where you look for school things on this site and tell me where you found them.
Blogfest is October 10-12, 2010. We will have a giveaway for that. There will also be many other awesome blogs to see then as well. So check back for more information on Blogfest.
And of course, we will have TONS more reviews and interviews!

For Tasha:
My school starts August 30th!!!!!! I will be a Freshman (9th) grader! I'm probably going to have a lot of homework, which I might or might not update on this. Until school does start, I have to read 2 classics on a list they gave me - To Kill A Mockingbird is one, the other I must still read - and 1 book of my choice. As you can see, I have read more than 1 extra book. It will be very hard to choose which one I do my report on, so I was asking if you could please pick one from my site that you think I did a really nice job of reviewing and email me (if the link doesn't work, leave me a comment and let me know) which one you think is best, or just leave a comment either here or below it. I'd really appreciate you helping me pick one! Thank you!
For Amber:
Amber's school also starts on the 30th. Amber is a 6th grader this year. Her first year of middle school starts now, haha. She must read 3 or 5, I'm not sure which, books on a list her school handed out. She hasn't read any. But as soon as she does, I'll have her post the reviews!

In My Life:
For Tasha:
I'm trying out for cheerleading this year! I have rehersals, or whatever they call it in cheerleading, August 13th and 14th. Also on the 14th I have Mary Poppins tickets, which I will be attending with a tea afterwards. Then on the 16th I have all-day cheerleading try-outs. If I don't make it, I'll be fine, I'll just audition for whatever play our school will be putting on in the fall. I'll let you know if I make it. If I do make it, then on the 17th I have our first offical practice with uniform fittings afterward. The on the 20th and 21st, I'm supposed to be at cheer camp if I make it, but I'm also supposed to be in New Jersey from the 20th to the 22nd. Not sure how that's going to work out. Then, I want to go from New Jersey to Teen Vogue's Haute Spot later the 22nd, but I'm still trying to convince my mom of that. On the 28th, I'm going to Newark, DE, for Shop Til You Rock which I am so excited about! I'm also trying to get my room redone, which I was promised would happen, but so far, nothing has happened. Still waiting to be allowed a Facebook too.....
I have recieved plenty of books in the mail, along with the books I bought prier to recieving them, that I'll be set for a while on reviewing books for all of you, so don't worry.
Added 5/12 - Scratch all the cheerleading mumbojumbo. I'm not even gonna try out now cause Amber hurt my tooth. I hate her so much..
For Amber:
She's going to Mary Poppins on the 14th, too, with the tea afterwards. Her birthday is August 19th! She'll be turning 11!!!! You can wish her a Happy Birthday here, or email her at
