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. 

Happy Sunday Funday! 
It's been a busy week here not a lot of reading sadly. That's ok it was really productive which is what I needed. My husband still has another week off and the zoo is in our future this week it looks like. My little starts swimming lessons next week which she is so excited about. My teenager has been applying for jobs but nothing yet, we keep hoping.
The weather can't figure out what it wants to do it's been mid 90's upper 80's and now we are back up to triple digits again. It's been overall really hot but at least we have an amazing AC unit. 

My bestie's husband was moved to another base she's been gone a few weeks and I miss her like crazy. It's just not the same with her gone, I miss hanging out even if it was just a quick trip to the grocery store. At least it's just 10 hours away and not forever. She and I like to read the same books but with school, she's been really busy.

I'm still working on my blog update and hope to roll some stuff out in August and be done with September. I've got some fun new posts planned and have my fingers crossed that it works out the way I have planned. 

Currently 85 of 250 and behind a lot. I'm hoping to catch up by the end of the summer.

This week has so been so busy with other stuff that I've been slacking a bit in this aspect. 


I've been working on a blue C2C blanket but haven't taken a picture this week. It's been a few stitches when I can. 

I've been baking sourdough bread all week long but I made a trip to the farmers market. Pickles are on the menu this week. I can't wait to make some it's been ages since we had homemade pickles. 

I have my first big tomato and I also picked up a new coloring book this week. One of my favorite tv shows. 

Bullet Journaling 
I'm changing up my layout seems to be a trend at this house. I like it but I don't love it. I hope to have a new layout next week. 

Quote/ fun stuff

This is going to be me today. 

I've been getting into playing Ark on xbox with my husband. It's kind of fun and frustrating at the same time.

  1. Sorry your BFF moved. (Besides Berls) my BFF lives 45 minutes away not far but we never seem to see each other, we chat a lot on text and the phone so it's not bad. The zoo sounds fun, I hope your little one enjoys swimming.
