If it's Wednesday, it's time for Hodgepodge.
1. What are two or three expectations you have of yourself?
I don't think I've seen any of the waterfalls mentioned. I've got to get out more.
I wish that I had started to lie about my age by about five years. That way, I could have had the chance of being the smartest in the class and perhaps one of the tallest for a moment in time. The tallest part probably wouldn't happen, and the smart part is improbable, but I can dream.

Can you say oily t-zone?
If I were smart, I should have told everyone I was 13.
If there are an exceptional amount of typos in today's post, it is all Kristy Woodson Harvey's fault. I stayed up very late last night finishing her new book Lies and Other Acts of Love. I kept telling myself that I was only going to read one more page, and yet I couldn't put this delicious book down. I should have known better because I enjoyed Kristy's first book, Dear Carolina, tremendously. You can read my review here.
Kristy is not only a novelist but also writes one of my favorite design blogs with her Mom, Design Chic.
Lies and Other Acts of Love is the epitome of captivating southern literature. You can read the synopsis here. The enchanting story is told in two voices: Lovey, the grandmother and Annabelle, the granddaughter. The thing that rings true in both of Kristy's novels is that the characters are so multifaceted and true to life that when I read the last pages of both books, I felt that I would miss them. I loved this book so much, I have decided that when I am blessed with grandchildren, I want to be called Lovey.
Lies and Other Acts of Love will be released on April 5th. Treat yourself to a copy. You can thank me later.
What's something that you wish you had done when you were a teenager?
Until next time...
