Hey Carmen, great summary! I love your posts on books. I got a few ideas of things to read from there in the past. I am also an avid reader always with my nose in a book.

I got a Kindle for Christmas and I love it! The first thing I did was download the final book of the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay. I think it was on your website that I first heard of it. I got the other two from the library, but the waiting list is so long, it takes forever. So I bought it and don't regret it. Actually, I bought all three books so I can go back and reread them. Amazing series.

I am now reading something a friend recommended. I think you would like it. It's called Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. It's set in the 1930's, characters are in a traveling circus.

I also read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, which I might have seen here. Awesome!

Happy 2011!!

Revenge is an all time favorite, the award winning post still touches me, Dinner in our house was perfect and Smitty was the best comic relief of the year! Keep posting I need to keep reading. Happy New Year Carmen!

Happy New Year, Carmen!!! I keep coming back over and over for your honesty. I downloaded the kindle app on my phone because of you. It's not very big on the phone but man is it nice to get little snippets of reading in while waiting at basketball practice or bball games or during kids' school work or, or, or. Many blessings and progress to you in the new year!

I loved it! I read all your posts, and it was fun to revisit some of them. Many of them touched me when they were written, several of them reassured me that I'm not as crazy as I'm sometimes sure I am, and all of them were just entertaining to read. Thank you for what must have been a labor-intense "blog year in review." I look forward to a good 2011 (my hubby got a GREAT job he's been wanting for a long time in Nov.), and your blog posts will be part of my internet routine. Lovin' it, Carmen!

Your refreshing honesty about parenting a large family keeps me hopeful for our (someday)(please God!) large family.

I like you Carmen. Keep on keeping on.

Happy New Year, Carmen. Thank you for all your help as I started my blog. I wish I could go to Blissdom with you. Maybe next year!

I read them all and am looking forward to more in 2011. :)

Thank you for another year of touching stories, entertainment, information and friendship from afar. Another year of recipes, fabulous photos and vicarious travel. A year of tears and laughter, concern and relief.

Here's to you and yours in 2011, with many thanks for your inspiring writing, and my hope that the year brings you everything you wish for.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for BlogHer, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
