The Sunday Post #10


http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/the-sunday-post-meme

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Finally it’s here.. my week vacation! Yesterday I had to work my last shift and now it’s time for a whole week of reading, blogging, spending time with the people I love and just doing what I love. Sigh.. This is my first vacation since September last year and it was soooo needed. I have a lot of reading and blogging planned and I’m just super excited.

Because this week was the last one before my vacation, it was fun but also hard because every workday seemed to take twice as long. On Monday I had a day off and I finally saw ‘The Revenant’. Although it definitely wasn’t a feel-good-movie I really enjoyed it. If you ask me, Mr. DiCaprio definitely deserved that Oscar. On Tuesday I had to work but in the middle of the night I felt really sick all of sudden and fell on our kitchen floor. I bumped my head pretty hard and was not feeling well when I woke up. So I stayed home and thankfully I felt much better in the afternoon. It was really weird.. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday I had to work, so not much was happening on those days except for off course Thursday..

Thursday it was my Two Year Blogiversary!! Yeahhhh!! Super exciting. Two years of blogging.. Time has flown by and I had such an awesome journey. Blogging has brought me so much and I’m really excited to have many more blogging years. If you want to join the celebration and enter the giveaway.. Just visit my Blogiversary page.

Today, Saturday, I’m going to see ‘The Choice’. I love Nicholas Sparks movies so I’m really excited about this one. It’s also probably the last change I get to see it before it’s out of the theaters. So.. it’s about time! LOL!
Tonight my boyfriend and I are going out for dinner in our favorite restaurant. After working the last two nights I can’t wait to have an evening just for ourselves.

And how was your week? What did you read?

  1. Happy belated blogiversary and have a wonderful wonderful week off doing all of the things you enjoy!

    I've actually got The Choice (the book) but am afraid I've shelved it to get to when I have more time (as it's been out for quite a while now)....
