The other day my friend Amy and I went out to dinner and then to LifeWay… (Yes, we were a couple of crazy moms out on the town on a Friday night.)
And soon after we walked in, I hear her exclaim, “What??!?! I din’t know this was out yet!!!!” Which made me come quickly to where she was– because, well she’s kinda not someone who just goes around exclaiming all the time. Except that one time she pulled me out of the path of a crazy driver at 6:15AM in your sidewalk-less neighborhood…
Anyway, this is what we found!!! (And four days early!!)
So Amy bought a copy but I restrained– but only because Lance bought me one on pre-order for Christmas. Needless to say, I might chase the mailman down the street if he doesn’t bring it today. Maybe. He will for sure get a look of disapproval.
So for those of you who may not know, Melanie Shankle author of the Big Mama Blog, wrote this book and also Sparkly Green Earrings– which I talk about frequently. It’s my favorite book to give a new mom. I’m sure this will be another favorite book to give also.
If you need more convincing– here’s the cute video promo–
YAY! I cannot wait. She’s just such a fun & relatable writer. You know that friend that you love to have coffee with because they can be telling you a hilarious story about their kid one moment and have you challenged at your walk with Christ the next? That’s Melanie Shankle’s writing. I encourage you to run right out and buy the book– You can buy it just about anywhere but here’s the link on Amazon: The Antelope in the Living Room: The Real Story of Two People Sharing One Life (affiliate link–thanks for clicking!)
