Exciting News!


Today is an exciting day in the GreenBean household. Mr. GreenBeanSexy Man and I are closing on our first home today!:) We're very excited to have found our perfect house after looking at about 45 houses and three months of searching and waiting. And now today's the day. And how perfect that we're buying our first house a week before our one year wedding anniversary? I think that's a good present, don't you?

Of course, one of the bedrooms will become my office/library and I can't wait to have a room full of bookshelves. I'll be sure to post pictures when it's all finished.

Now comes the painting and decorating and honestly, I have no idea what I'm doing! If anyone has good suggestions on books to read (of course) or TV shows I should watch, I'd love to hear them.

  11. Awesome! That's so exciting!

    As far as TV shows go, if you've got access to the infamous Springfield Mediacom standard cable, HGTV is on channel 68. It's basically one giant home improvement channel, and they've got all kinds of neat decorating ideas. My roomies and I always turn it on when we get bored! Lol. Good luck with moving in! :)

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
