Update Sunday Feb 5th 11:51am est ~ Hi, I am adding this update in since this post was done before last night. Our house got hit with the dreaded Stomach Virus and I am taking care of the little girl today. If you stop by to comment, thank you! I will comment back as soon as I can stop all the ick…I will be spending the day Lysoling the house and praying no one else gets it because that would be no fun at all. I also have a few posts that still need to be done that I listed below that might not happen so they will be moved to next week. Thanks for understanding 🙂 Have a great week!
On the blog:
This week I introduced a new monthly feature called Monthly Book Report. I wanted a way to showcase the books I read, received and reviewed. I thought this would be a great way. I also made some changes to my Monthly Rewind, which is now all about Posts and Blogging. Real life stuff is saved for this post only, so it’s a recap of my blogging during the month and what is to come. I have been brainstorming a lot and this week I will introduce another new feature, however, this will be a starter post, like an explanation so you know what is to come. I am rather excited about it because it’s a fun post. I have a few other ideas that I am working out on I am really thinking about either making it a challenge or just maybe something I do myself. Still thinking about it and how I want it to work. I am so happy about my progress and even if I am not at the moment as ahead as I would like, I am still proud of how determined I am to bring this blog back from the disaster it became last year.
In Real life:
76 days smoke free….I feel amazing and in a much better place.
This week went by very quickly and was somewhat productive but not as much as I wanted to get finished. My sister and I took my mom out to dinner for her birthday with my daughter. It was a nice night out and the food was delicious. It’s a local restaurant called Spuntinos and the food is a gourmet tapas. I love it and drag my husband often so it was nice to have a girls night with yummy food and of course wine.
Saturday I spend all day cleaning the bathroom and redecorating, wasn’t planning on it but a slight incident caused the shower curtain to get torn up so instead of waiting another week I did it on Saturday. It took a lot longer than I had wanted but I am kind of happy it’s done now. One less thing to do for Spring cleaning. 🙂
Today is Superbowl Sunday and I don’t really care. I enjoy the Puppy and Kitten bowl because PUPPIES AND KITTENS!!! plus I will be cooking a nice fun dinner for my parents and family. Just some fun food while the boys watch football and I watch the puppies, kittens & commercials. Hoping for some funny ones because the world could use some more fun/funny stuff.
What I’m Watching:
I am almost done with Bones, by the time you read this I should be finished with Season 11…now if I can just avoid watching it again, that would be great, I really want to catch up on Emerald City and Once Upon a Time which is my goal this week. 🙂
