The Sunday Post #25


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.

Life:

So, there’s not a lot going on this week. Life has been pretty busy again. I had to work the nightshift Monday till Thursday, and since it was very hot during the day, I didn’t get a lot of sleep. The nightshifts where also crazy busy so when I got home I was exhausted and didn’t really feel like doing anything.
Friday I spent the day at my mom’s house. We started planning for a date to go wedding dress shopping. Super exciting!! We had a lovely day talking about weddings, dresses, decorations.. Sigh.. I love it.
And this weekend I had to work again. This week has definitely been all about work.

Books & Blogging:

This week I received some new books I’m really excited about. I didn’t get much reading time, but I did manage to make some blog posts so I’m a little ahead again. That definitely feels good.
Hopefully next week will give me a little more reading time.

  1. Some weeks work just seems to suck up all the time, doesn't it? I didn't read a ton this week either...

    I'd be curious about that new book, is that her first new one since Twilight? And that video! Wow... I didn't realize it had been that long since Hanson was around!

    1. It sure does Greg. I wish we could work less, and read more! LOL!

      'The Chemist' is the first book Stephenie Meyer published since Twilight.. I'm so curious about that one.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Sorry to hear work's been so full-on and that it's been hot. But the wedding dress shopping sounds exciting - as well as the planning. Stressful but exciting. At least nowadays you're not limited to magazines but Pinterest etc as well for ideas. (Though I guess that could be overwhelming too!)

  3. The heat is terrible. :( I hope it won't be too bad next week, especially if you have to work.
    Wedding planning can be fun but also stressful.
    Hanson always was really talented so I'm not surprised that they still sound good.

  4. Ooh wedding dress shopping, that's going to be so fun!!! Sorry you had to work so much, especially the night shift. And it's been crazy hot here too. Maybe this week will be better for you work-wise and you'll get more reading time :-)

  6. Wedding dress shopping can be fun - so long as it isn't too hot and crowded! Night shifts - hm. Himself has to do a fair number of those and it can play havoc if it's too warm to sleep well during the day - hope your next week reverts back and then, maybe, you can get more reading done:)

    1. Night Shifts and hot weather definitely aren't the best combination. But I survived.. :D
      I can't wait to start dress shopping. It's soooo exciting. :D

    1. Thanks Laura. The books sure look lovely. I can't wait to start reading them :D

  8. I'm about done with the heat. I like hot weather normally but I've had just about enough of it now. I'll take not having temps in the triple digits. I can imagine it's hard enough to get a good amount of sleep on night shifts anyway and doubly so when it's a billion degrees outside. The wedding planning sounds like a lot of fun! Have a great week!

    1. The heat can definitely be overwelming. But when I'm not working the night shift, I don't mind so much. It's better than all the rain.
      Thanks for stopping by ;)

  9. The Blood Led Her looks really good and I will definitely read anything Stephanie Meyer writes. Enjoy the wedding planning.

  11. Yuck -- work and heat doesn't sound like a lot of fun. But I hope you enjoy dress shopping and other wedding-planning stuff! I was ... overwhelmed at all the options last year when we got married --- who knew there were SOOO many options for EVERYTHING?!
