{Weekly Wrap Up} 6-3-16

Wrapping things up a day late because life has been a little busy the past few days, but in a good way! We started summer hours at work on Fridays where we get to leave at 12:30, so the morning goes really quickly. No complaints here! We spent the afternoon in the pool, then out to dinner with friends afterwards. Today was Sunnie’s big dance recital, and she did so great! Here’s a picture of my sweet girl before we left for the show.


I may have cried before, during, and after her performance. Did I mention I’m an emotional nutcase?! 😉

On a bookish note, I have to mention that I finished TWO amazing books this week. Undecided was every bit as wonderful as the hype said it was, and hyped books usually disappoint me. And after reading The Bird and the Sword, I decided to try another Amy Harmon book and picked up Making Faces. It goes down as one of my favorite books of all time. And of course now I’m mad at myself for not reading her books sooner. I had a few others on my Kindle already, but I had a little Amazon shopping spree to get the rest.

The 5k on Memorial Day went better than I could’ve ever imagined! I got a new PR, coming in at 26:57, which beats my fastest time by 22 seconds. I was thrilled! And my hubby was there to cheer me on.

    Your daughter is so adorable! Pretty in her dress, too. Congrats on her performance.

    Your books all look very tempting, and they are new to me. I am curious about Undecided. I will check it out.

    Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

    Ah I think a mother can cry before, during and after and no apology for it! Sunnie looks gorgeous. Great work with the running and the new PR. And then all those books to read. Go enjoy.

      Aw, thank you!! 🙂 A Different Blue is taking a little longer for me to get in to than Making Faces did. I’m starting to like a bit more, but Blue is a bit hard to like right now. Hopefully it wins me over more soon.

    How adorable Sunni looks! She is your spitting image. Congrats on the 5K, too! Ahem…I don’t see The Law of Moses or Loving David or Infinity + One on that list, missy. Get crackin’ on that! 😉

  4. The Bibliophile Babe says:

    Sunnie looks adorable! Good job on the 5k!

    I’m so with you on Amy Harmon. I want to read something like the Bird and The Sword, but haven’t found anything similar yet. I have a physical copy of Making Faces, and I’m going to pick that up tonight. I want to buy all her books!

    Aww.. Sunnie looks so cute! I know I would’ve been crying before, during and after, too, Brandie! Congrats on your fastest 5K! Btw, love your white jeans (via Snapchat)! Have a great rest of the weekend. I’m sad Monday is here so soon!

    • Brandie says:

      Thanks, Rachel!! 🙂
      I think every milestone with Sunnie is going to make me cry. Lol.
      I can hardly believe it’s Monday already!! Have a great week!
