Books & Things Launch & GIVEAWAY - CFRR 2017 Recap


Pepper Basham EEEEE!
I have been scarce online this week due to the fact that I have been pretending to be alive. CFRR (Christian Fiction Readers Retreat) was held this past weekend in Cincinnati, Ohio. So.Much.Fun! I will get around to posting pictures on social media...eventually. But at least I am posting a recap this year. I still have last year's recap saved as a draft...ya...that didn't happen. 

Me, Jen Turano, and Rachael
This year, Rachael from Rachael's Reads and I teamed up to give you a "brief" (trust me, we could go on ALL DAY if you let us) recap of our adventures AND we have an EXCLUSIVE giveaway going (details below)! So make sure you get your comments in ON THE VIDEO POST BELOW!!!! Below the video you will find author and blogger links for those that we talked about. We absolutely LOVED spending time with each and every person at CFRR! I wish we could tell you all the details of the day, but I guess you will just have to come next year and experience it for yourself! Although a few highlights, that I may or may not have mentioned in the video include...

  • Staying up until 2am with Pepper's daughter Lydia who bunked with me, Rach, and Meghan Gorecki. 
    Me & Kristi Ann Hunter
  • Tim Tams from Mikal Dawn! (Dark Chocolate)
  • Getting to chat with Jen Turano...A LOT! (Who surprised us by showing up! AHHHH)
  • Fangirling over....everyone...#freakingoutandflailingabout
  • Meeting Kat and Charity
  • See that other crazy lady in the pic above...that's Meghan Gorecki....I adore her!
  • Carrie...Annie...Bonnie...Just to be in the same room as all 3 of them blows me away!
  • Being Pepper's REAL assistant...as in, I got to do her hair for the costume segment hehe
  • Flying home with a friend unexpectedly. Becca and I happened to have the same flight out of Cincinnati and were able to switch our seats so we could sit together!
  • Skyline Chili with my sis-in-law who drove FIVE hours to see me!
  • And SO.MUCH.MORE!!!!

I KNOW I am going to forget someone! Please know it wasn't intentional...we will blame it on the "pretending to be alive" factor. Oh my goodness, it was INCREDIBLE getting to see everyone!
