Books and Blogging
VERY slow week, I didn’t mean it to be but with school almost ending and the holidays right around the corner (10 days) just didn’t sign up for a lot of stuff this week I guess. Next week however I do have a few things coming up and two reviews.
That should be all until next year….maybe, unless I get a lot of time over the holiday week I might be able to squeeze one more in. I only need one more to complete my Goodreads goal of 65 this year. I know people read a lot more but I am very proud of myself…I want to read 100 next year!

What else has been going on?
It’s been a crazy weather week in NJ. Tuesday we had a snowstorm that turned to an ice event later in the night. The roads were very slippery so it was nice to be inside with the kids catching up on all my reading. I was FINALLY able to wrap all the kids gifts on Friday while they were at school. Really think Santa didn’t pay close attention to what he bought because that was a little bit more then I realized LOL oops….
Every year my mom baked a mountain of cookies from cutout, to press cookies, Biscotti, Pecan Balls, Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter Cookies and more. It’s one of my favorite things to do and we have been doing it since I was little. My grandmother use to come over and help and now my kids come over to help me help my mom. We were suppose to do it on Saturday but because of the impending snow storm my mom asked if we could come by Friday to help her, so I had all day Saturday to make my own cookies.
My daughter helped me bake we had so much fun. I also realized you need to turn the oven on if you want the cookies to bake LOL. Took me about 20minutes before I realized I had turned off the stove before I finished the last batch of cookies 🙂
This morning we went to the Rainforest Cafe. If you don’t know what it is it’s a theme restaurant. It’s like eating in the jungle its very noise and they have giant movable animals. Once in a while all the animals start chattering at one time and you are in the middle of a thunderstorm. It really cool and my kids LOVE it. We went for Breakfast with Santa and you can even see Santa swimming in the giant fish tank (however he didn’t do it this time).
