We've got a friend in Stacey Wiedower...plus a book giveaway

Today, Stacey Wiedower is here to celebrate the publication of her latest novel, How to Be Loved, which is the second book in her Fixer Upper Romantic Comedy series. To get you started, she has two e-book copies of the first book in the series, How to Look Happy, to give away!

Stacey Wiedower is a freelance journalist and USA Today-bestselling romantic comedy author. She lives in Memphis, Tennessee, with her husband, also a writer, and a son who's inherited their overactive imaginations. She's here to talk about our theme for March...humor. Stacey is really funny, so she's the perfect person to kick off this theme month!

Interior designer Quinn Cunningham has spent her life competing with her sisters, struggling with her weight, and breaking up with one jerk after another. She's currently at war with her mother, who wants nothing more than for Quinn to land a man and fall in line with her wealthy Southern family's traditional path of marriage, kids, spin class, and social climbing. But all Quinn really wants is to build a thriving career and make her own way.

When she lands an assignment to design a London townhouse for her boss's brother, Quinn is ecstatic to get out of her hometown of Memphis and embark on an exciting adventure outside the bounds of her mother's stifling social scene. As she learns the ropes in a new city and tackles the restoration of a stately old home, she meets a quirky fellow designer who pulls her easily—almost too easily—into her inner circle, along with not just one, but two hot British men with secrets she's dying to unravel. The question is, will transatlantic romance unravel her, or will love finally find a place alongside Quinn's ambition? (Courtesy of Amazon.)

Most recent thing you laughed about:
My most recent laughs have come from re-watching the first few seasons of Friends for about the five millionth time! I pulled out the DVD box set recently to have on in the background while painting my living room, and I laughed just as hard as I did the first (or fifth, or fifteenth) time I watched it. And last weekend, I laughed because my best friend's husband was wearing a Friends T-shirt covered in funny lines from the show, and we all cracked up remembering which episodes and characters they came from. My best friend and I can quote episodes verbatim, WITH emphasis.

Favorite funny meme:
There are SO many ... how can I pick? But this? This is me.

Favorite sitcom
It's still Friends. Surprise, surprise!

Favorite comedian
I'm loving some Leslie Jones, who gets bonus points because she's from my city! So is Justin Timberlake, who's also one quite fine comedian (in more ways than one). I especially love J.T. when he hangs out with Jimmy Fallon.

Favorite joke (keep it clean :) )
George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey get together to make a movie.
Clooney says, "I'll direct."
DiCaprio says, "I'll act."
McConaughey says, "I'll write. I'll write. I'll write."

*snort laughs*

What is something that always makes you laugh no matter what?
This might sound silly, but my book club is flipping hilarious. Every month, I'm guaranteed a night of laughing, wine drinking and even a little book discussion. ;)

And, of course, Friends. Was that overkill?

Thanks to Stacey for cracking us up and sharing her book with our readers.

It's not a comedy show but, last week's X-file's show was hysterical. If you get a chance, watch it.

It's been sooo many years since I've watched Friends and then I only watched it occasionally. I laughed out loud at Seinfeld. More my speed.
