How my week went

Well. My week was going pretty good – it’s sunny, the weather been nice and it’s been quite relaxing over here. Friday, however, the weather took a turn for the worst. Tornado warnings and sirens and scary weather. And I was sitting in a restaurant right next to a wall of windows. We managed to get home in a storm lull and watched Beauty and the Beast. Yay! I still think that movie is so cute 💕 

Yesterday I went to a baby shower – and it was so weird. Before I even got there, I cut my head with the serrated edge of a grilled spatula – it was hanging from a hook and I jumped right into it. So my head throbbing. Then we left for the baby shower and yum! They had strawberries dipped in chocolate; marsh mellows on a pretzel stick, dipped in chocolate with Heath toffee bar crumbles on it (divine); petit fours or something another, which is like little cheesecake tings that were scrumptious. I feel like I ate ten of everything. I know I didn’t, but I had to be practically rolled home. Not counting the actual food that was there. 

But then we all traipsed outside and sat in direct sunlight for close to four hours. In dresses – it was miserable. They had a huge tent, it was a carport, and all they had under it was the gifts table and the mother-to-be. The rest of us were semicircled around the tent – in the sun. So the mother-to-be was isolated and we were heating up. There must have been a different way to arrange all that. 

Anyway. Great week :)

What I Read This Week

Around the Blogosphere

Book Hauls

A half-priced books haul… 

An Amazon haul in preparation for the Biannual Bibliothon … 

And also…

  • Exploited by A. Meredith Walters — Thank you Loveswept!

Totally Random

  • Lost Girl is a totally awesome TV show. I would know because I’m watching it for the second time XD
  • Spice Cake is absolutely scrumptious
  • Anything dipped in chocolate is divine. 
  • Half-Priced Books is both awesome and the biggest con ever. Books are uber-cheap – unless they are newly released “20% off bestseller price” (i.e., the ones I want). Then Amazon is cheaper.
  • Funko Pops are still amazing and I WANT I WANT
  • I’m window-shopping for bookish candles and I don’t know what to choose!
  • Doctor Strange and Beauty and the Beast are top-notch movies.
  • Head injuries suck. 
  • Kristin Cashore has a new book coming out! It’s Jane, Unlimited and I can’t wait!!!
