Another weekend … another update!
In my life:
A bit of a busier week for me. MAINLY because I learned my due date for baby is a whopping 10 days earlier than I thought. I feel so unprepared! After that news on Tuesday, I spent more time making lists and making sure I’m on the right track with all the baby prep and whatnot.
However, this is kind of a good thing in my eyes since baby will most likely be here in the world BEFORE Christmas — I was so worried that baby would be born ON Christmas. At any rate, I spent a lot of time shopping with my best friend and planning the nursery. This is flying by so fast!
In non-baby news, the dog was in a dog show this weekend. Not in the ACTUAL show, but in the Sieger part of it, which any dog could enter — fixed or not. We had to rush to find a groomer for her AND to, you know, train her to do the ring. That was fun, but since it’s all in good fun, it was okay. Our other two don’t do the show circuit or anything, and Bailey hasn’t done it for YEARS (since she hates it) so it’s fun to have an event like this. She did AWESOME, even if her rating wasn’t the best. She had shown in dog shows years before and always hated the ring, but seemed to be in good spirits for this one!
AND I totally broke one of my crowns this week eating a frozen chocolate chip cookie. The funny thing is that the last time I broke a tooth, it was on one of those thin chocolate bars with mint in it — one of the mint pieces broke my tooth! Apparently, me and frozen chocolate don’t mix. The bad news is that my dentist doesn’t work on pregnant women when it comes to dental surgery, so they’re going to file down the sharp edges and leave it at that. Boo. 😦
Fun things I found this week:
First of all, how AWESOME is this Mumford & Sons video? EPIC.
Second, I completely adore Hugh Laurie and was so excited to find he had a new album out! Me and the dogs rocked out to this one this week:
In reading (& blogging):
This week started off to be the week of blogging! I was way behind on writing reviews and had an outline of posts to schedule until the end of 2013. I spent ALL DAY on Monday working on these posts and scheduled pretty much everything until the end of the year, minus the spaces reviews. I’ve even started scheduling reviews in 2014! I am determined to get totally scheduled for when baby comes!
This week I read:
1. How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvator Doktorski (review book)
2. Stay With Me (With Me, #1) by Elyssa Patrick (review book)
3. Rules of Summer by Joanna Philbin (review book)
I kind of sucked with reading this week, but hope to do a little better next week. I had a bit of a baby brain this week!
Now, onto the books! (Click on the covers to be taken to Goodreads)
Here are the review books I got this week. Seriously, some people are completely and totally awesome. Karina Halle, for one (who was as shocked as I was to learn I wasn’t approved for her latest on NetGalley — I mean, I fangirl over her a LOT.). And Tracey Garvis Graves and her publicist. They completely made my week! And big thanks to Simon & Schuster Canada, Elyssa Patrick, and Sourcebooks!
I bought A book this week — I didn’t go crazy! Though we are having a book blogger meetup today, so I bet I’ll buy more then. 🙂
And a few more freebie books from Amazon. 🙂
How was your week? Have you read anything good lately?
