The Sunday Post #31


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:

This week was another busy week. I had to work three days, I had a free day on Thursday and then I had to work another three days. So I definitely didn’t have a lot of free time this week. On Tuesday after work, I went with one of my girlfriends to the movies. First we went to this nice restaurant we both hadn’t been before. It was so good! They have this menu filled with all kinds of little dishes. So we ordered six different ones, and it was incredible tasty. Definitely a restaurant we need to  bring our men to someday.
After the restaurant we went to see ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’. What a great movie. Check out my Movie Recap if you want to know my thoughts about it. But let me tell you one thing.. AMAZING.

The rest of the week not a lot of stuff happened. I watched some Gilmore Girls episodes on Netflix and ordered some stuff on the Internet for my wedding.

Books & Blogging:

I didn’t have nearly as much reading time as I wanted but at least I did get a little time. I also didn’t have a lot of blogging time, but I did have two awesome events going on my blog this week. One Halloween event with a GREAT Giveaway, and one Audio Giveaway. Super exciting!

  2. That sounds like a fun restaurant! Almost like a tapas bar, and I'm glad you enjoyed Bridget Jones, I've been hearing mixed reviews.

    1. It really was a fun restaurant Laura. Definitely a little like a tapas bar, but only with other kinds of food.. Sweet potato fries, Honey chicken etc. Very tasty! ;)

  3. Oooh, I like the sound of that restaurant! I've never seen Bridget Jones. Not really my kind of movie. I like lots of action and stuff blowing up. LOL I'm glad you enjoyed it though!

  9. I've heard some good things about the Bridget Jones movie... though barely anything about the book. Was there a third book?

    I'm looking forward to The Gilmore Girls reboot soon so kept a couple of the final episodes recorded to watch before I see them in late November!

    1. I honestly don't know if there is a third book. I haven't read any of the books to be honest. I just watched the movies. I'm usually the other way around but somehow not with Bridget Jones.
      Gilmore Girls is sooo good. It never gets old watching it! :D

  10. Bridget Jones looks like a hoot. I have not read any of the books.
