July 2017 Wrap-Up + Book Haul


Goodbye July, and hello August!

I cannot believe how quickly this summer is flying by.  One minute my kids are getting out of school for summer break, and the next I am gathering lists for back to school shopping!  July was a crazy month for me, but despite all the craziness I did manage to read 9 books & get a good amount of blogging done!  Yay for productivity!  My biggest news this month is that we bought a new house.  Unfortunately this isn’t a simple move… we are completely renovating the house over the next few months before we move in.  My husband flips homes for a living, and assures me that he can get this done in 2 months.  I’m not holding my breath lol  My goal is to move in before Christmas.  Please send me good vibes for my sanity throughout this process 🙂

Let’s see what I got accomplished in July, shall we?

June 2017 Wrap-Up + Book Haul


Oh hey!  Remember me?!

As per usual I grossly underestimated the amount of time I would have to blog during a particularly hectic time.  If you remember from my last wrap-up, I had house guests last week, and this week I am on vacation up at my parent’s house on Lake Erie.  When will I learn to prepare and schedule posts ahead of time?!  Let’s be honest, it probably will never happen.

Anyways! This wrap-up is a little late, but let’s see what I accomplished in June…

April 2017 Book Haul


Welcome to my April book haul, or as I like to refer to it: “the month I lost all control.”

 So… I bought a few books in April.  Now, when I say “a few” I really mean a ludicrous amount of books.  We are talking 25+ books here.   In my defense, April just happened to be my birthday month AND I attended TWO book festivals…  I mean those are legit reasons to go on a book buying binge right?!

I really hope my husband never sees this post…
