The Sunday Post #47: Blogiversary



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ Its 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 last week has been a challenge for sure. I was very tired after finishing up my nightshift Monday morning. Nightshift in combination with my upcoming vacation definitely made me feel like I hadn’t slept in months. I was super tired. And I had to work the dayshift Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. And if that wasn’t enough we also had to go to the dentist two evening in a row. But thankfully that’s all done now and I finally have my week of. Boy was I looking forward to this week!! 

A very exciting thing about this week was that our wedding invitations are now at my mom’s house ready to be send. She wants to put some kind of note inside (I have no idea what she’s planning!!). They will be send next week and it’s just super exciting to get closer and closer to our wedding day. 

Today, Saturday, is the first real day of my vacation and we have a fun day planned. This afternoon we are going for drinks at a bar downtown with some friends, and tonight we are going out for Sushi. Just the two of us. It’s been a while that we’ve been out with just the two of us.

Books & Blogging:

Friday it was my Three Year Blogiversary!! I have an awesome (if I do say so myself) giveaway going on. In the end I’m going to pick out three winners, so if you haven’t checked it out make sure you so soon! ;) My man surprised me with this sweet gift to celebrate my Blogiversary!! I'm one lucky girl!!

The Blog Ahead Mini Challenge I participated in ended this Wednesday and although I didn’t reach my goal I was pretty happy with my result in the end. And since I now have some free time I hope to get more posts ready since I won’t be blogging much in May, due to our wedding and honeymoon.

Reading wise I finished only one book this week. I was so tired that every time I saw my bed I fell asleep almost immediately. But I also hope to catch up on my reading this week. I did manage to listen to almost half of an audiobook this Monday while I was cleaning our home after my nightshift. So I did do something! LOL!! 

I’m also hoping to get more participants for my weekly meme ‘My Favorite..’. Not that I’m not having fun but because I think it would be even more fun if we get more participants. Do you guys have any tips to achieve that?

  3. I don't think I'd be able to switch between night and day shifts, Maureen. You are a hero! I have so much admiration for nurses :)
    I bet it's exciting to know the wedding invitations have arrived at your mom's house :)
    Enjoy your week off, and happy reading.

    1. It definitely makes your body feel very confused. Even after almost ten years of working nights I still don't feel normal after working the nightshift.
      Your to kind Lexxie! ;)

  5. I am glad you have reached your week off! Enjoy every minute of it. I am so sorry about the dentist visits. I hate having to go to the dentist. I can't believe the invitations are ready to be sent out already. The wedding will be here before you know it. How exciting!

    Congratulations on your blog anniversary! I hope you have a great week, Maureen!

    1. The dentist definitely also isn't my favorite.. but I don't mind as much as a lot of people I know. So I can't complain.
      It's super exciting!! Only 8 more weeks! :D
      Have a great week and happy reading!

  6. It does sound like you've had a stressful, tiring week. But ooh, invitations ready to go, how exciting! And your night out sounds like it was fun :-)

    I just have too many posts scheduled already to plan out memes and usually not enough time to visit all the other blogs involved, but if I can add my answer to my Weekly Update, then I'll try to remember to join in with yours sometimes :-)
