Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 3/26/17

March 26, 2017 Sunday Post 24

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):

My two homeschooled kids were on spring break from co-op this week (though we still had some work that we needed to get done), so we had a relatively relaxing week. We watched Pete’s Dragon on Netflix—the original was a favorite of mine when I was a kid, and even though this version was very different (not surprisingly), I really enjoyed it!

We also went to see the new Beauty and the Beast, which I absolutely adored! Even my fourteen-year-old son said it was pretty darn good (he gave it a begrudging 7 out of 10, which is amazing for him when it comes to a musical). I was utterly enchanted by Emma Watson and really happy with the slight adaptations that were made (though I thought they made Beast a bit meaner at the beginning and for longer—they made up for it by adding some more connection between Belle and Beast after the scene where he saves her from the wolves).

Then, yesterday, it was 75 degrees and we took advantage by taking two walks—one for ice cream.  🙂

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

    What a great week! I haven’t gone to see Beauty & the Beast…yet! We are supposed to go today. I’m looking forward to it.

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Book breaks are good–i.e. when you don’t add MORE to the TBR pile! It gives you the illusion that you can catch up in that one week! LOL! At least that’s how I think of it! From my haul only one was new since the other one isn’t being shipped yet until who knows when!

    I loved the new Beauty and the Beast too! Like I said in my review, there were three changes that irked me, but other than that I really really liked it and cannot wait to hopefully see it again! After all, I did see the animated one twice in theaters! LOL!

    Here’s my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    I remember Pete’s Dragon, and I have to admit I was curious when I saw the new one on Netflix. And I love it when the ice cream places open up here- the one close by just opened last week so I know it’s spring ha ha!

    Have a great week!

      We were almost all the way there when it occurred to me that it might not be open yet! Luckily, it was. I’m sure my kids would have given me a hard time if we walked all the way there and had no ice cream reward at the end! 🙂

  4. Cait @ Paper Fury

    Ooh, ice cream! YAY. And that’s awesome that your kids loved the new Beauty and the Beast so much!! I have only heard good things about it, hehe, although I’ll probably wait till it comes out on dvd to see it…because I’m slack.😂 But I definitely want to eventually because Emma Watson is amazing.

    Hope you have a great week!

  5. Dragonfly @ Our Familiarium

    Yay for school breaks and relaxing 🙂 I can’t believe we haven’t watched Pete’s Dragon at home yet! Now I want too more 🙂 I posted my review of Beauty and the Beast yesterday. SO GOOD! I want to watch again and again and again 🙂 HA! funny that your son said that, I understand because I’m not into musical either. 🙂
