Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 2/14/15

February 14, 2016 Sunday Post 17

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):

Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you who celebrate it! We don’t really, since it’s right after my birthday, but my hubby and I did go out to dinner last night as a birthday/Valentines celebration. All three of our kiddos are gone this weekend at an overnight camp with church, so we had a day of freedom yesterday! That’s never happened before! We actually didn’t do all that much to take advantage, but we did enjoy the quiet!

I’ve been working on another proofreading project, and I’m really enjoying the book (huge bonus in my line of work), so the job has been very pleasant indeed. Somehow on the blog I managed to schedule several New Adult reads in a row – not sure how that happens sometimes – just when things end up falling, I guess. And then I’ll be starting out next week with a MG read, which feels a bit strange. In fact, I might push that one to later in the week …

Other than that, I’ve just been trying to catch up on blogging and life now (after the gymnastics meet last week sucked all of my time away). I managed to read and comment on all the discussion posts that have gone up so far (as of yesterday – you guys are rock stars and have been posting so many amazing discussions!), so now I just need to catch up on replying and commenting back! I’m getting there!

 

Here’s what you may have missed last week:

    Well, it’s a snowy day here in my city so I don’t know if I can persuade my husband to watch a movie with me to celebrate Valentine’s Day. :/ Yay, for alone time with the hubs!

    Happy reading, Nicole!

    It’s snowing here in Iowa today and it is quite cozy inside. We are hoping the snow lets up a bit so we can journey out to a movie and grab some Chinese on the way home. We are celebrating Valentine’s Day in a low key way. 🙂

    I think I’ll be having Markus Zusak fest on my blog in March/April. He’s visiting so I’m re-reading The Book Thief and I’m going to move onto I Am the Messenger then Underdogs. 🙂 I’ve often thought of having a time travel review theme, too. I have A LOT of time travel books.

  3. Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight

    Wait, does one of your kids do gymnastics? I used to do gymnastics! That *is* great that you’re enjoying the book you’re proofreading. I can only imagine how maddening it must be having to read through all the books you don’t like! (By the way, how did you get into proofreading? I always wonder how people get bookish jobs like that. I would totally read it if you made a post about that.) Have a great week, and thanks for mentioning my discussion post 🙂

    Oh MAN Nicole, I failed at remembering your birthday! I am SO. SORRY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, albeit belated. (Feel free to blame it on the illness my children brought back from school that kept me in bed for like, a day and a half, and I will too.) And WOW, no kids?! That is awesome! That has not ever happened to me either! Glad that you were able to enjoy some quiet time 🙂 And thanks so much for linking up to my post, you’re the best!

    We don’t typically do valentines day either, but we did spend the day watching movies!!

  6. Micheline @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews

    Sounds like you had a busy week but with some special times for your birthday as well, which is always fun 🙂 I’m not big on Valentine’s Day either – I don’t really see the point but whatever I guess LOL! Anyway, I’m glad that work is treating you well and of course I always like to hear about you every week ♥

    That’s amazing that you both had a day with no kiddos! I’m sure that was very welcomed after your gymnastics weekend. Here’s hoping that the rest of your week has been going smooth. Oh, and I’m smiling so huge at the I Swear I’ve Seen This Guy Before post! YES! There are certain cover models out there that just pop up on all of the book covers lol.
