I’ve been tossing around doing a weekly recap post lately. I’ve seen different variations of Five Things Friday on many blogs that I think is fun, so I decided to create a mix of the two. I figure a few topics will be consistent each week, but I’ll change up the rest. We’ll see how it goes!
1. this week in reading
From Sand and Ash is a must read. I am loving the creepy vibe I’m getting from The Perfect Stranger. It’s really good so far.
2. New Books I’m excited about
I’ve gotten my hands on a lot of great books I can’t wait to read, especially The Roman – I love that series. Today I picked up a copy of A Man Called Ove at Target, thanks to all of the recommendations from my book friends.
3. fun thing(s) from the week
Last weekend I took Sunnie to see the Trolls movie. It’s probably the cutest kids movie ever. And if hearing that Justin Timberlake song doesn’t just make you want to get up and dance…
4. life happens
Work has been busier than ever the past few months. I love having more responsibilities, and the days fly by. Most days I have to work through lunch, which means no reading or blogging. I’m looking forward to vacation coming up – I plan to read and blog a lot while I’m home.
5. looking ahead
I’m excited to have almost zero plans this weekend, except for taking my car for an oil change tomorrow. We are supposedly getting some serious snow on Sunday, which means we’ll be enjoying a lazy day at home. I see a lot of football, reading, and wine in the near future.
Sunnie has her Christmas program next week, and I’m really looking forward to seeing her sing. It’s only a 4-day work week for me, and then hello, vacation!
