Instead of my usual fabulous Friday Fantasy post, today I’m taking a lazy day. In fact, you just might find me lounging on this beach in La Jolla ~ for research, of course! Even lazy days are filled with work sometimes.
Why a lazy day? July is gearing up to be one incredible event after another and I’m going to need all the energy I can muster.
What’s going on in July?
Le Tour de France starts tomorrow! Technically it started today with the Prologue, but racing starts tomorrow). Look for my Crush of the Month next Friday (7/6). You can be sure it will one of the riders, but which one?
July 4th! Fireworks, BBQs, friends and family or just taking a nap. Reader’s choice.
July 9th or 10th I get to hang out with Jillian Dodd! Hmmm, I wonder if she’ll see Magic Mike again…
July 12 – 15th Comic-Con! Not only will I get to hang out with Debra Kristi, there will also be incredible author panels, celebrities (Nathan Fillion, I’m waiting for my close up!), and cool toys/books/shirts to check out. If you’ve never been to the San Diego Comic-Con, it’s a wild adventure. Yes, pictures will be posted. You just won’t believe some of the costumes folks wear. Last year I saw a Steampunk Pug on a Harley Davidson. It was awesome! For a little teaser, check out Piper Bayard’s post on the Denver Comic-Con here.
July 17th I’ll be heading to the Old Globe to see ‘As You Like It’ in their outdoor theater. It’s my first time seeing this play live. So excited!
July 25 – 28th – Romance Writers of America Convention in Anaheim! I’m super nervous to be going to this huge conference. In addition to staying with Debra Kristi, I’m going to see Jenny Hansen and Kristen Lamb. WANA explosion!
As if that wasn’t enough to keep my heart racing for the rest of the year, the Olympics start on July 27th, keeping me riveted to the television clear through August 12th.
I might get a few week’s reprieve until school starts, but with two kids at home I doubt it!
What does your July look like? Are you as excited as I am for the Tour de France and Olympics? Got any great plans for the 4th of July? Will I see you at Comic-Con or RWA?
I’ll leave you with two more pictures of La Jolla. Have a great weekend everyone, may you find time to relax and enjoy the sun like these sea lions.
