I'm back!

Hi all!!

What a busy last few months.  I do apologize for the radio silence on this side of my blog.  This will be a short, but sweet, update on what's been going on in my life since October 2018 (Eek!)

New addition!
- We're expecting a little boy in July.  This is the main reason that I've been MIA from blogging.  I've been both tired and nauseous - my favorite combo of feelings (ha ha ha)
. My body aches and I'm always eating - always. If you see me without food in my hands, then there is a really good chance that I'm on my way for food.

Getting use to having a caffeine intake limit has been an adjustment, to say the least.  Coffee makes my stomach fluttery.  But, I can tolerate tea daily.  And treat myself to a coffee or latte on occasion. I've been told that my favorite mugs are making there way to the back of the cabinet because they aren't being used as much.  Heartbreaking, I know (lol 🤣)

Christmas/New Years Eve
 - Everything went well.  Lots of family, food and rest.  Oh, and I caught the lovely head cold that was making the rounds, which was super fun as I was transition from the first to the second trimester (note: read the last sentence with sarcasm - lol).  We didn't have much snowfall, which means that we were able to get out around and take in everything that we wanted to pack into the holiday season without setbacks.

Goosebumps Book Club (#GBCGhostNextDoor on Twitter)
 - We've been moving forward with the book club on Mandi's YouTube page. At the moment, there are 17 episodes, which includes on bonus episode which she just released as well. We just posted The Return of the Mummy.  Our schedule for the next few months have been released on Twitter, just search using the Twitter handle above. We have an upcoming announcement, so be sure to check out  #GBCGhostNextDoor on Twitter in the next few days.

Podcasts
 - I've been enjoying the following mystery/murder/horror podcasts recently:
* note: language and topics in the above podcasts may not be for sensitive listeners. The 3rd is more of a comedy than the other two.

And that's a wrap on the updates.

Later Days!

Sci-Fi on the Rock

Hi folks,

Last weekend myself and Mandi attended, and hosted an event and panel at this years Sci-Fi on the Rock for our Welcome to Deadhouse Goosebumps book club (#GBCGhostNextDoor on Twitter).


This adventure all started with suggestions from our spouses. So, we came up with a few ideas, went through the application process and waited. We are new to the event and panelist, and our YouTube book club is under a year old - so we figured that we didn't have much of a shot of being accepted.  Then the email came. We were accepted as panelist. For both ideas that we submitted.  Oh snap! Oh snap! OH SNAP!

Planning the panels was super fun.  We love the Goosebumps series and we were able to create a plan that we were both happy with.  The "Reader Beware, You Choose the Scare!" event was first - it was the first evening of the event, and scheduled to be 2 hours long. Here we read through the Diary of the Mad Mummy, and backtracked 4 times to get 4 different endings.  We had antic…

Rewind Tour - 2018

We've been having a few throwback tours hitting the island in the past few years.  This year's tour being The Rewind Tour - and it didn't disappoint!

I'll take this post back to last year when we attended the first throwback tour - I Love The 90's tour.  This concert was amazing!  Heading the show was Salt-n-Peppa. And other acts included Rob Base, Color Me Badd, All-4-One, one member of the C&C Music Factory, Biz Markie and Young MC. The attending crowd could be spotted around the town quite easily before and after the concert as most concert-goers were dawning neon from head to toe, crimped big hair, and other 90's fashions.

While the music was fantastic at the I Love The 90's tour, I was disappointed that there was no merchandise for sale. I believe here is where I raise my hand and admit that I have a concert t-shirt collection, right?  I had my heart set on adding a Salt-N-Peppa t-shirt to my collection.

Well, this year, the concert folks learned a…
