This past week on FYFA (and in my life):
My youngest was sick this week—which is very unusual for him. (Usually the rest of us could all be miserable and he’s perfectly fine. We always joke that his Haitian blood laughs at our silly little American germs.) Then, of course, I got sick too, which threw a wrench in my plans for the week. I felt better for a day, and now I’m feeling sick again—ugh!
BUT this was still a lucky week for me apparently because I won three giveaways. I won a signed copy of Mr. Perfect from Bookworm Brandee, The First to Know audiobook and swag from We Live and Breathe Books and the 2017 Series Enders Challenge Grand Prize giveaway from Somewhere Only We Know, which was a $50 Amazon Gift card!!
