The Sunday Post #72: Weekend Trip



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.

I’m writing this on Friday morning because we are going on a trip this weekend. And I’m super excited. We are going to Den Haag, or The Hague it’s called in English. The Hague is a city on the western coast of the Netherlands and we are going with two friends. We booked two rooms in the Hilton there. And I’m super excited. We got this great deal on a beautiful hotel room there and we’re are leaving around 10 a.m. this morning, till Sunday. My husband and his best friend are going to this international Whiskey event today till 5 p.m. and while I’m waiting on my husband’s best friends girlfriend (LOL!! Do you still follow?) I’m going to browse the beautiful book stores there. She will be here in the afternoon, so I’ll have some time. And we will go out to dinner, and just have a lot of fun this weekend. So I won’t be blogging at least till Sunday evening. 

This week was pretty slow. I worked the final four days of my six dayshifts in a row and I was completely exhausted. But it was a good week!

Books & Blogging:

Blogging wise I’ve tried to visit as many as you guys as I could possible squeeze in. I’m still not completely satisfied, so I’ll try to do more this week. It’s a challenge sometimes with working full time as a nurse, starting my promotion business, doing house work and spending time with my husband.. But I’ll find my way soon! :D

This week another Sign-Up went life for Maureen’s Books Promotions. It’s a Book Promo for ‘Grigori: A Royal Dragon Romance’ by Lauren Smith. ‘Grigori’ is a Paranormal Romance novel and the promo will be for December 14th. If you have a spot left, I would love it if you could sign up!

Next week there will be another Sign-Up ready to go. It’s for a ten day event in January and I’m super excited about it. Keep your eyes open for the sign up! ;)

I also updated my 'My Favorite' list for 2018. So check it out if you're interested! 

So things are going pretty good. I’ve been reading in the late hours of the evenings, and I’m definitely feeling like I’m completely back in reading paradise. LOL!! I should stop requesting book on Netgalley though. My TBR is getting to damn long!! Sigh..

How was your week? What did you read?

  1. Oh, you're on a trip! That's so cool :) I hope it's going well? Sounds like fun, anyway. The funny thing is that you said "We're going to a WHISKEY event. I'm going to browse BOOKSTORES." I feel like that sentence says a lot about you :DDD (and I approve too! However... How are there bookstores there xDD)

  3. Ooh, I would love to visit The Netherlands. My daughter and son-in-law were in Amsterdam in June (on their honeymoon, which mostly focused on Prague); and my granddaughter is doing a semester in Prague and enjoyed a weekend in Amsterdam this past week.

    Of course, The Hague was not one of the places they visited....but I'm hoping you enjoyed it.

    Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. It definitely was a fun weekend. The bookstores where amazing.. Somehow every bookstore looks new and exciting, although they obviously have some similarities.
      Have a great week and happy reading!
