Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore 6/28/15

June 28, 2015 Sunday Post 21

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

Last week on FYFA (and in my life):

Have to share at least one picture of Colorado. We’ve had tons of fun! This is the family on Mt. Bierstadt – a 14,000 foot mountain! My husband and kids actually made it all the way to the top. I actually couldn’t keep up with them – I only made it to 13,500 and then let them head up that last 500 themselves (they had to basically scale a huge thing of rocks – my husband was so impressed that the kids did it!). Meanwhile, I sat and read a book on my Kindle. LOL!

Colorado

Just as I predicted a couple of weeks ago, I am woefully behind on replying to comments and on commenting back. I’m doing my best!

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog last week:

Book-Haul
Purchased from the Awesome Tattered Cover Book Store in Denver:

School-for-Good-and-EvilA-World-Without-Princes

Plus, I bought a couple of other books that were purely for the kids. The School for Good and Evil books are kind of for the kids, but I’ve heard great things about them and I want to read them too!! I could have bought TONS more books at the books at this bookstore, but I held myself back!

      You’re welcome! Thanks for hosting the event and so many awesome giveaways. I’ve been thinking of joining in on the event, but I’m already struggling to keep up with the blog while on vacation – maybe in July!

    I went to college in Denver, and I spent a lot of time at the Tattered Cover. The store used to be much bigger, but they had to downsize a few years ago because rent was too high. I still live in Colorado, so I shop there whenever I go to Denver.

      Yay for Colorado! It’s so beautiful! I read on your blog that you said that you live in the boring part, but I don’t see where that could possibly be. Try living in Illinois! 🙂

    • Nicole

      Yeah, sometimes you go through periods where it just feels impossible to catch up – I totally get that!

    • Nicole

      I thought so too – though I did feel a bit wimpy since the kids all made it up. 🙂 The air up there is pretty thin, though, and I was definitely feeling the effects.

    • Nicole

      We figure we need to make up for all the flat ground at home in Illinois – we don’t do anything halfway! 🙂

    Awesome recap! I love hiking although I would have probably stopped and started reading too, but its so impressive they made it all the way to the top! And the Tattered Cover Bookstore! I’ve heard about that book store I hope I get to go one day! But also very impressed you held back from buying more books haha 🙂

    Love the list of discussions and giveaways! I’m also holding an awesome BookCon giveaway on my blog! There are tons of different prizes like a signed Throne of Glass Poster, some TMI Swag, etc, etc. Anyone interested can check it out here
