Another week has flown by like crazy. It’s honestly starting to freak me out how fast time is flying by! Does anyone feel the same? I mean, I haven’t even visited every one of you for the last Sunday Post and here we are again. Sigh.. I hope you know that I do plan to visit all of you, but well life..

On Tuesday we had the final meeting of my Centering Pregnancy group. The official meetings that is.. we still plan a lot of coffee dates during the week, which is awesome but this was the final meeting with the midwives. It was so fun. We all had our babies with us and it was just really a fun morning. For those of you who don’t know what Centering Pregnancy is. “Centering Pregnancy is group prenatal care bringing women due at the same time out of exam rooms and into a comfortable group setting.” I’m really happy to have been able to join this group. It definitely has been a blessing to be a part of this group and I hope that we’ll be able to keep in touch. 

On Wednesday baby girl and I went to see my mom. We went to this big baby clothing store and we bought a lot of cute stuff that where on sale. I even bough a little bathing suit because we plan on starting baby swimming in December. I can’t wait. 

And today, Friday, is the start of the HoHoHo Readathon! I’m so excited about this readathon, especially since this year I’m finally able to really join since I’m still on maternity leave. I have a lot of fun looking Christmas books ready to start reading. O how I love Christmas.. Sigh..

Saturday the husband and I are going out to dinner. Baby girl is staying with the grandparents. It’s the second time I have to leave baby girl for a view hours. I’m excited to go out to dinner, but I just can’t get used to not being with my baby every single minute. But I have too.. only two weeks to go before I have to get back to work!

  2. Good luck with the HoHoHo readathon, Maureen :)
    I think that when you see your baby grow all the time, you are even more aware of how fast time is going... Nothing to do but get used to it, I guess. I was in groups like yours before and after my pregnancy as well, and I am actually still in touch with some women and children today - my oldest is 23 now. It’s precious!
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

      Yes.. I'm definitely even more aware of time since my baby girl was born. She is just growing so fast I'm afraid to go to sleep sometimes. LOL!!
      Happy Reading!

  8. Yeay for the HoHoHoRAT! I'm doing it too. :)
    Enjoy your meal and time with your husband! It's hard when kids are so little and you can't bare to part from them but it get's easier and you've got to make time for just you too.

    1. Thanks Mary! And I totally get it. This is the first year I've been able to really participate. I've been to busy most years.

  10. I'm also doing HoHoHoRAT and need to balance it out another year with more mysteries or fantasy or something because what I have is mostly Contemporary Romance. That said, my favorite so far is Rocky Mountain Christmas Cowboy! I also really enjoyed Hidden by Zanetti and all the In Death books.

    I'm using the tactic of visiting about 10 Sunday posts a day and it takes all week. It is weird visiting some on Saturday as some of the new posts are starting to show up. Have a great week!

    1. I have only Contemporary Romance and Romance novels to read for the #HOHOHORAT but I definitely don't mind. Reading those books feels just like Christmas to me. I hope you're enjoying the readathon so far. ;)
      Have a great week and happy reading!
