Opposites Attracting


Mr. W and I have been taking a lot of weekend road trips lately, and you all know the best part of road trips, right? The junk food. Road trips are like free passes for calorie-ridden guilty pleasures, and I for one am all for that. (Nom, nom.)

Mr. W, who likes to eat super healthy, not so much.

Take a look at this.



It’s a receipt for a pit stop we made awhile ago. 2 bananas, a bottle of Coke, 1 blueberry Odwalla smoothie, 1 bag of Doritos, and 1 Snickers bar.

Can you guess whose items are whose?

I guess that old saying about opposites attracting is really true, and I’m glad it is. Today, Mr. W and I are celebrating our twenty-third wedding anniversary.

I think that calls for cake.

Do you think I can get Mr. W to have a piece? :)

***

Oh, and before I forget, I have a new release out this week. Look for A POTION TO DIE FOR in bookstores on Tuesday. Much happiness.



 As the owner of the Little Shop of Potions, a magic potion shop specializing in love potions, Carly Bell Hartwell finds her product more in demand than ever. A local soothsayer has predicted that a couple in town will soon divorce—and now it seems every married person in Hitching Post, Alabama, wants a little extra matrimonial magic to make sure they stay hitched.


But when Carly finds a dead man in her shop, clutching one of her potion bottles, she goes from most popular potion person to public enemy number one. In no time the murder investigation becomes a witch hunt—literally! Now Carly is going to need to brew up some serious sleuthing skills to clear her name and find the real killer—before the whole town becomes convinced her potions really are to die for!

Happy Anniversary Heather! And if you decorate his piece of cake with some fresh fruit, he might take it.
I do look forward to your new book, according to Bookdepository, they have shipped it :)

Carrot cake maybe?

Happy Anniversary!

Last year I would have had the Snickers but this year I need water and veggies with something protein-y for my snacks. Makes travel eating interesting.

I pre-ordered your book :-)

That's so funny! I guess opposites do attract. Happy Anniversary! I am looking forward to the new series.

Happy, happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to you and Mr. W! Wishing you a wonderful day.

Your receipt tickles me to no need! Mr. W. certainly goes to show that one can eat healthy no matter where they are. I would definitely be with you grabbing soda and candy. I suppose I could try to alternate bites of banana with bites of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but that might be pushing it! :)

A POTION TO DIE FOR is only $4.79 right now on Amazon! Spread the word! And, I spied the cover of THE GOODBYE WITCH. Gorgeous! I am very much looking forward to both!

Happy Anniversary!!!! We are a November wedding too. And, we are opposites....he buys the good for you food...I look for snacks and candy! Horrible sweet tooth!

Thank you!

Heather Blake Webber said...

LOL, Aurian, I think you're right about that. And I hope your copy of Potion gets there soon. Thank you! (And I love Bookdepository!)

Heather Blake Webber said...

Mmmmm!

Heather Blake Webber said...

That would be really tough on the road. I eat gluten free most of the time, and I think veggies and protein would be even harder. Thanks for the preoder! :)

Heather Blake Webber said...

Thanks, Dru Ann!

Heather Blake Webber said...

Thank you, Jeannie!

Heather Blake Webber said...

Thank you, Alicia!

Heather Blake Webber said...

Kristin, thank you! And now I'm craving Reese's! LOL. I've been talking about the $4.79 on FB like crazy. I'm sure people are getting sick of me. :) Such a good sale, though. And that cover is sooo pretty. I'm waiting for the hi-res version to put it on my website.

Heather Blake Webber said...

We're a lot alike, SueAnn! Happy Anniversary to you, too. :)

Aw, thank you. :)

Linda Mc said...

Happy Anniversary! I totally know which items are yours on the receipt. They would be the same ones I would have. :) I got my pre-order in for A Potion To Die For....now just waiting for it to be delivered to my door! Can't wait.

Heather Blake Webber said...

Thanks, Linda! You clearly have great taste in junk food! I hope you love the book--thanks for the pre-order. :)

Happy Anniversary (and if Mr. W doesn't want cake, you get two pieces).

Happy anniversary! We found a truck stop that had Chobani in Missouri. Very exciting after a lot of fast food.
