The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post
Hosted by:

The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer~ It's a chance to share new ~ 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. 

It's been a mostly quiet week here we are on our last week before my husband is home. the weather has been crazy I feel like it's so cold I'm freezing in the am and some days it get's hot shorts weather and other days the wind makes it freezing. 
I've been crafty this week and a little reading this week but not as many as I had hoped. 

Started just over a week ago and currently about 6 ahead still. My goal this week is to be 20 ahead. 

I hope everyone is staying cool and having a great week.

New Books
Crafty projects & Baking & Cooking & Gardening. 
I made a beautiful purse that I'm just in love with. It's my current go-to bag it's perfect for soccer practice. 
I have three projects on the plan for the week. Plus the trick or treat bag I didn't get to last week. 
After struggling with the color pooling crochet technique I finally figured it out. I'm hoping to turn this project into a cute over the shoulder purse. 

I made some BBQ chicken sliders for a potluck birthday lunch on Friday. Super easy and very good. 

I'm on the fitbit stepping challenge like so many I know. I've been averaging about 7k depending on the day. I did end up hurting my heel so putting on sneakers has been a tough challenge the last couple of days. Did take the dogs walking which loved the exercise. 

New TV Shows
My husband and I like to watch all the new shows that premier. 
We've so far found a few we enjoy.
MacGyver - which I have fond memories of watching as a kid with my parents is just as good as the original. 
Conviction - I'm a huge fan of crime shows and I think the concept is interesting. 
Leathal Weapon - Loved the movies this one is good. 
I'm waiting on the husband to get home to watch the CW shows as well as American Horror Story the new season.

  1. It's been hot and cold here too, 70's during the day but cool at night. Fanged Outcast looks good, I like that covr and it sounds like a fun one.

    Have a great week!

    1. We've been bouncing between 70's and mid 80's during the day and love 50's at night.
      I actually really like the Fanged Series but I hate having to wait for the next one to come out.

  2. Yummm... chicken sliders!

    Wow, 14 posts to do this week for Blog Ahead. Good luck!

    1. I had planned to have 10 per week for blog ahead but I am not as ahead as I wanted to be so I'm hoping to get caught up and to my goal =D
      Chicken sliders are easy and so yummy!

  3. I love your color pooling purse!!! I've been trying to figure it out for myself and I'm not having any luck at all. One day....
    Hope you enjoy your week and new reads. Good luck on Blog ahead!

    1. I spent weeks struggling to get the color pooling to work right. This is my first attempt of it actually working and I'm in love. I'm in a group on facebook that is all about color pooling. Lots of great info because without it I would be struggling still. I sent you a friends request. We have mutual friends. I'll add you to the group. =D

  4. I'm hungry. LOL

    1. They are super easy. I saw them on facebook so I had to give them a shot. I wrote this post last night and I'm already hungry =D

  5. We teeter back and forth with temps, but no air needed this week. Wahoo on 6 ahead. 20 is a goal. Hope your week is amazing Mandy!

  6. Best of luck with staying ahead.

  7. BBQ Chicken Sliders sound yummy! I love weeks when I am getting some writing done, probably like your crafty weeks. :-) You got some good books though.
