The Sunday Post #28

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 has been really busy again. A lot of working, and I also had a view courses after work this week which left little time for anything else. Thankfully I had a free day on Friday, which I spent with my mom. We went shopping, and we went to the beach for a nice luxurious lunch and it was just really a good day. The weather was also really nice. I definitely still don’t have the feeling it’s October already. 

On Saturday I had lunch with my mom and friend on our wedding location. I was really looking forward to showing off the beautiful place we will get married in, in only 7 months. I especially wanted to let them see it so they can help me with picking decorations and other stuff. I really need some help with that. Saturday night I had to work again because there was no one else who could. Sigh..

Sunday, today, we will be going to two birthday parties. So.. no slow weekend for us.

Books & Blogging:

I didn’t have a lot of reading time this week. And since the upcoming week will also be really busy, I definitely need to find some time to do some reading. Maybe on my break at work or in the mornings. I’ll have to figure something out! 

Blogging wise I still had a pretty good week. I was the featured blogger on the Boost it Tuesday, which was really fun. And Saturday the #BlogAhead2016 Challenge began. Come on over to give me a little support because it will definitely be a challenge this year! LOL!!

Bookish Quotes:


  1. I am glad you were able to enjoy a free day with your mother, Maureen. Sounds like you have a busy weekend otherwise! I have family coming to town next weekend and so much to do around the house before they arrive. I'm not sure when I'll get it done in between everything else. That seems to be the way of it though.

    What did your mother think of the wedding location? I'm sure it's beautiful. Are you getting married indoors or outdoors?

    I hope you have a wonderful week! I'm not sure how much blogging I'll be doing. Work is just too crazy and I haven't had much time to spend on my blog, much less visiting others. I miss the summer when things were slower and less hectic already.

    1. My mom also loved the location. She is just so excited as we are.. so that's great! :D
      Thanks for stopping by. I hope you've got to all the house stuff you needed to do ;)

  2. You sound busy! Hope you get a break and some reading time in soon. :) A day at the beach is always nice.

    Have a great week.

    1. Thanks Greg. Yes, that was definitely a good day. I hadn't been to the beach in ages!
      Happy Reading!

  3. Lunch with your mother sounds wonderful. Luxurious time spent with people you love is time well spent.

    Enjoy your new books...thanks for sharing, and I hope you have a great week. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. It really was a good day with my mom. Loved spending the day on the beach and enjoying the beautiful view.
      Thanks for stopping by ;)

  4. Sounds like you'll have a pretty nice weekend, even if it is rather busy! Sorry you had to work on Saturday though!

    Good luck with the Blog Ahead challenge. I'm taking part too. I haven't scheduled anything for November or later yet, as I have a lot to do for October, but I hope to get ahead somewhat by the end.


    1. Thanks Lauren. Good luck with the #BlogAhead challenge too! I hope I can start on my Blog Ahead tonight.
      Happy Reading!

  5. You have been busy Maureen! Did you get any suggestions from your mother or friend re decorations for the wedding? Did they like the venue?

    I hope this week is a little quieter and you have more time to relax and read!

    1. Yes, my mom and friend definitely have a lot of ideas. They are much better in that than I am. LOL! And the loved the venue! I can't wait to share some pictures with you guys! ;)
      Have a great week!
