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. 

Happy Mothers Day! 

This is a two week update. Last weekend was crazy busy and I ended up skipping a few posts. I've been feeling a little overwhelmed with real life but things are starting to calm down. I'm hoping to change things up a little and add some fun new weekly posts that I've been working on. 

The weather has been crazy between blistering hot over 90's days down to low 70's with the threat of rain. I have a feeling that with the spike up to the 90's it's going to be a hot summer. I'm wishing it would be low 80's upper 70's all year around so I could get away with shorts and skirts with flip flops. 

I didn't do as much reading as I would have liked but that's because I had a busy week. I did some sewing this week, though which was nice. I admit I may have binge watched Friends but it's hard to not get sucked into that show. 

I've been in a reading funk but I've fallen down the rabbit hole when it comes to comics. I'm haven't found a manga I love yet but hopefully this week. I've been crafting up a storm the last few weeks. 

Currently 62 of 250 and 20 books behind which keeps growing. 

Posts you may have missed at TRD this week or the prior since it's two weeks this week. 

I'm so behind on reviews the last few weeks. I really need to get caught up. 
New Books that I added to my shelves this week. 

Received Buns by Alice Clayton finished copy for review from the publisher. 

Hundreds by Pepper Winters - For review from the author 


Crafty projects & Baking/cooking & Gardening. 
I've been working on my daughters mermaid tail but it's slow going. I also finished my first Audio book. I may just be hooked. 

More bags this week. I can't seem to make enough of them. 

I made cream cheese frosted chocolate cupcakes this week for a squadron function. They turned out amazing. Might be my new favorite frosting. 

I tried my hand at homemade hot pockets. Shockingly they turned out better than expected. 
I also make my favorite beef roast in the crockpot. We had yummy sandwiches for a few days which is awesome. 

To much real life I only pushed 10k all week and last night I didn't even get more than 7k we had a busy day. Saturday is my lazy day so I've been hanging out with the hubby and kids. The work week hoping to hit 15k every day. 

Quote/ fun stuff.
