So I didn't get much done while I was in Philly. But that's okay. I'm home now and can dive back in! My somewhat blog hiatus continues until I finish this round of edits, but until then, remember I am still reading your blogs, just not commenting as much!

While in Philly, I got to attend Jennifer Weiner's Cupcakes Across America tour at the Philadelphia Free Library, complete with a Q&A/reading/signing:

Jen asking why I wanted a book signed without a name - because it is for YOU, of course! 12 followers away from a chance to win a signed copy of Jen's FLY AWAY HOME!
No idea what I'm saying...
Jen and I. Read more about my experience meeting Jen here.
I also got to meet my bloggy friend - the Blue Lipstick Samurai herself - Glenna Walsh, who does not wear blue lipstick, but may have samurai-music sensibilities. Glenna and I met at Naked Chocolate Cafe, where we partook in these luxury chocolate drinks:

Glenna's frappe
My frozen chocolate drink. It was extremely chocolatey. And made me feel as if there were a bee buzzing through my veins. Delicious, but even coffee-free, it was too much caffeine for me!
Glenna also delivered a Revisions Survival Kit, courtesy of she and Molly Brewer. I can't show much of the box, since it has addresses on it, but here's a sampling of the contents, including a mix tape cd for editing entitled Abby Stevens and the Revisions of Azkaban:

Sharpies, index cards, erasers, chocolate, Nutella (which I had never tried before), candy, coupons for free blog posts and more!
Also, some fairy dust and lots of encouragement!

Another reason being part of the blogging community is awesome! Thank you again, Glenna and Molly!

1) You had never tried Nutella before?!?! Has it rocked your world yet?

2) ZOMG those chocolate drinks look BEYOND good. Wow.

3) That is the best, cutest, sweetest gift box ever.

Hope the revisions continue awesomely!

Nutella is one of the BEST THINGS EVER. I hope you are enjoying that. :)

Those chocolate drinks look scrumptious. I'm jealous.

How fun! And those drinks look amazing!

Ahh- How did you manage to get my hand?! Ninja. ;)

I had so much fun; I'm so glad you enjoyed it! And your chocolate drink, of course. That brought twice the awesome.

(Look, Molly! The Nutella's there! IT'S THERE!)

I got to try Nutella a few weeks ago for the first time on a Banana & Nutella Crepe at this Crepe cart that is near my work. I want to try a fluffernutter with Nutella instead of Peanut Butter ... it could be awesome.
