Week in Review:

Both kids are officially back to school, so this week was crazy. The weather this weekend was GORGEOUS! Like my favorite weather, in the low 70s with an amazing breeze. It did rain and suppose to rain this week and warm up because of hurricane Gordon. I am hoping Florence moves her ass out to sea because her path is making me a little nervous.

It was slow reading, but I got a few pages read in my current read. I was able to get a bunch of design work completed. I was very behind but I am now almost caught up. The only thing I haven’t gotten back to doing was visiting and I am hoping after this week/weekend that will change.

Today is a VERY busy day (unless it rains), my daughter has her pep rally at 10am and her first football game at 2 (she’s a cheerleader) which is an away game, so who knows what time I will be home. I will try to visit as many people as I can in the morning but it might have to wait until Monday unless it rains then I will be here all day. 🙂 Change of plans game is still on but girls don’t cheer in the rain, so I will be home blogging and visiting all day! 🙂

Bloggiesta returns on October 22nd to the 28th it actually runs into the last week of Blog Ahead which starts October 1st. You can sign up for Blog Ahead HERE. We are hoping this motivates people to not only blog ahead but also spend some time getting your blog ready for the holidays and the new year. Bloggiesta Sign Up should be live in a few weeks.

Last Week on the Blog:

What you might see this week:

  • Task It tuesday
  • Review ~ The Glass Mermaid <–Not sure about this one yet. It might be next week.
  • Five Bookish Recommendations RH Part 1

(Read, Currently Reading & Next)

I haven’t started Strength yet because I started illuminae I am only a few pages in and I find it so interesting how it reads but I’m looking for a character connection and I don’t seem to be finding one just yet. I assume there will be one at some point…right?

What I grabbed

From Publisher ~ Penguin

This book looks super creepy and will be doing it as a blog tour at the end of the month. It’s a short read so I will probably squeeze it in at some point this week.

I forgot to change the title of the post since I got this on Saturday and I wrote the title on Friday! 🙂 lol



So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?

Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!

Happy Reading

  1. Hahaha I love the harry potter cartoon 🙂 What’s with people not reading the books, right?

    So glad you’re getting caught up, that’s so great! And I bet today raining out the cheerleaders helped some! Just sent you a text about bloggiesta,, we may have a situation… TTFN {HUGS}

  2. Isn’t it funny how things change when kids go back to school? Ha ha and yes the cooler weather is AWESOME. More please!

    Hope you’re enjoying Illuminae! Small Spaces looks like a trip.

  3. Hopefully the storm gets out of the way. I’m glad the weather is cooler. I’m still waiting for consistently cooler weather here. It always seems to get really hot right before I go running. That Harry Potter random is hilarious. It reminds me of my mom. She’s seen all of the movies and doesn’t think she needs to read the books.

  4. That sounds like a busy week with your kids going back to school and you doing a lot of design work. It’s been some good weather here too, not too warm, but still some sunny days.

    I hope you find the character connection more with Illuminae as it progresses. I heard it has a very unique way it tells the story, but not sure if it’s for me. You seem to be enjoying that Curse of the Gods series :).

    Have a great week!
