The Sunday Post #82: The Shopping Has Started



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly 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.

This week was pretty good, except for some back pains that forced me to do things slow. I worked on Monday, and after work we had a going-away-dinner for a colleague who has a new job. This dinner was in the city where I worked at, and I even got time to buy my two very first pregnancy pants. LOL!! I just had to have these, since my old jeans just started to hurt. It was a nice dinner.

On Tuesday I had to work again. And on Wednesday, I went to this pregnancy/baby event with one of my girlfriends. It was really fun to just look at all this stuff. And I’m proud to say that I only got a lot of info, and two shirts.. and I didn’t buy anything else. And these are the only two things I got for the baby myself so far.. and a copy of ‘Guess How Much I Love You’. Pretty impressive with I all these pretty things around for baby’s. :D 

On Thursday and Friday I had to work again. And this weekend I’m taking things slow. A little bit of cleaning in the baby room, but a lot of resting too since my back is telling me I need to.  

Reading wise I didn’t get as much reading time as I planned on, but I did manage to do some blogging. I even made some plans for my blogiversary week in March. And I could definitely use your help.   

Blogiversary in March:

On March 17th Maureen’s Books is celebrating it’s 4 year #Blogiversary! (Yes, I know it’s crazy. Four years!!) Where has the time gone right?! And to celebrate this exciting event I’m looking for bloggers & authors who are willing to write a guest post for Maureen’s Books. It can be about anything you want and it can even include anything you’d like. Maybe you want to add a giveaway, or a little game.. you name it and I can make it work. So are you interested to help me celebrate in the week of March 12th till 18th? Just sign up here and I'll send you an email with more info. 


I hope you all had a great week.

  6. I hope your pregnancy goes well, with not too many back issues.

    Happy Four Year Anniversary! I can't believe that I'll have ten years in April...but I don't have my original blog, which I've since merged with other blogs on WordPress.

    I love the name Maureen...and my one and only daughter has it for a middle name (Irish ancestry). She is "Heather Maureen."

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
