Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 2/12/17

February 12, 2017 Sunday Post 28

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):

So, yesterday was my birthday, and I had a great day! (And, yes, for those of your who are confused, I accidentally said in last week’s Sunday Post that yesterday was my Blogoversary. That’s what I get for cutting and pasting—means I can’t even get my own birthday right!) Anyway, my kids had their final swim meet of the season yesterday (which is still going on today—I’m typing this while I’m waiting to go do my timing job, and I’m guessing this post is going to end up going up late because I don’t think I’ll be able to finish in time). Then, in the evening, my husband, my mom and I went out to dinner. I stuffed myself way too much, as is required on your birthday!!

Not much else is new this week. I had to do an hour-long deep cleaning at the dentist, which was made much more pleasant by listening to the super adorable Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. I still have another hour-long session for the other side of my mouth, so I’m glad I’m able to pass the time in a less miserable way with audiobooks!

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

Next week on FYFA:

I was going to do some planning for my birthday/blogoversary giveaway, but being sick has thrown me off. Hopefully I’ll get something up next week, but I had a thought in my head about something good and haven’t had a chance to work on it, so … I haven’t decided what I’m going to do yet.

    Oh, hahahah! I RT’d your blog anniversary tweet. ^.^ Happy Birthday! Ugh. Those deep cleaning sessions terrify me. Because the last one I’ve was so traumatizing, I’d asked my dentist to see me every four months. Thank God for hubby’s dental coverage!

    Anyway, have a great week, Nicole!

    Happy birthday again! I’m glad you had a great day! It’s always required to stuff yourself with food on your birthday, Lol. That’s just the way of things.

    And I’ve never thought to listen to audiobooks while at the dentist. Hmmm. I should see if I can do that next time!

      I thought I was the only one who doesn’t love swag. There have been a few times when I’ve been tempted by pre-order deals, but most of the time I’m not interested. I tend to just throw bookmarks and such in a drawer. I feel a little guilty about that. 🙁

    Happy (belated) birthday! Sounds like you had a wonderful dinner out. Great idea to listen to an audiobook while at the dentist. Although I’m not sure even Simon can help make a deep cleaning better. *cringe* Hope you’re feeling better this week, Nicole!

    “There are NO birthdays or blogoversaries this week!”.
    Admit it. You did it on purpose. Got rid of all the other birthdays and blogoversaries this week, so you would be able to shine ;D.

    OK, happy belated birthday! for real. And thank you for your useful weekly recaps. I used to participate in TSS by cheating – that is, doing a monthly recap instead of a weekly one – and only lasted 3 months. I don’t know where you find the time and energy to do this every week!

    How do I get a deep cleaning? Seriously, my dentist works on me for 30 minutes and then it’s up and out. Happy birthday!! It sounds like you had a good night.

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      My dentist said that I needed a deep cleaning because I have too deep of pockets in my gums. It was very expensive and not particularly pleasant so I wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t need it. I think I’d prefer the 30 minute cleaning. 🙂
