This is a weekly event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous.
- Life keeps throwing us curve balls, and we’re just trying to take things one day at a time. My daughter now has pink eye, after just getting over pneumonia from last week. All I can hope for is that she’s building up her immune system, now that she’s in school and around other kids, and getting it all out of the way before the holidays! I just want her to start feeling better. It breaks my heart seeing her suffer.
- Because of trying to get Sunnie better, and sleeping with her most nights, I’ve been pretty exhausted and not getting much reading done. Although, I am almost done with Secret Sisters, and it’s just okay. I enjoy the suspense parts of the book, really it’s the only reason I’ve kept reading. In my opinion the couple has zero chemistry, and I’m not buying their relationship. At this point, I’m just so invested that I want to finish it and move on.
- I tried another new recipe, Spicy Taco Gnocchi Skillet, last weekend and it was a major hit for both me and the hubby. It’s easy and quick, and it’s going into the monthly rotation! We ate it with tortilla chips, and it was so filling and delicious.
- Not a whole lot on the agenda for this weekend except getting Sunnie better, and if she does feel well enough, taking her to a local pumpkin patch and going to pick out her Halloween costume. It’s hard to believe the month is almost over already!
In case you missed it…

I have awesome book friends who spoil me, and I’m forever grateful. My friend Rachel from The Reader’s Den/Waves of Fiction sent me copies of Madame X and Claimed. And my friend Arlene from Waves of Fiction went to The Authors in the OC event a few weeks ago and got me SIGNED copies of Marrow, and Never Never Part One & Two. All are signed by Tarryn Fisher, and NNPT is also signed by Colleen Hoover (although she had to back out of the event at the last minute – she had pre-signed all the books). I’m SO excited to have these!!
I also had to buy a copy of the Tenth Anniversary Twilight/Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. Even if I don’t read Life and Death (which I’m not convinced yet to try it), I had to own a copy for my collection, because this series means a lot to me.

My steps the past week are really disappointing for me. Especially Friday – it’s been a long time since I’ve not even hit 10,000 in a day! But life happens, and I know I won’t always have the time every day, so I have to accept that. With my daughter being sick and sleeping in my bed the past few nights, I’ve not been able to get up and do my normal morning runs. I’m just doing what I can when I have time, and I’m learning not to be too hard on myself when I can’t run one day, or I don’t get enough steps in. Being a working mom, there’s just not always enough time in the day to get everything done. And my family always comes first. But I will say that I’ve found running to be the BEST stress reliever. When time allows, I make sure to get a run in, because it really helps me manage stress these days.
On a good note, I was able to get a run in at the park on Saturday, and was pretty proud of my pace and my splits!
