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.
This past week on FYFA (and in my life):
- Visit from an Old Friend. Yesterday, we had a friend from high school over who we hadn’t seen in many years. He’s actually the person who introduced my husband and me! It was great to reminisce with him!
- Vacation Pics. Last week, you guys pointed out I should have included some pics of our vacation (I actually meant to, but I forgot to add them). Here you go!
- Writing: I got a good amount of editing done this week. Still working on my latest draft!
- What I Read:
- I didn’t read anything except a couple of board books this week: Women in Science and Women in Sports by Rachel Ignotofsky.
- I finished listening to Archenemies by Marissa Meyer and then moved on to the final book in the series, Supernova.
- TV We Watched:
- The final season of Supernatural. We’re working that way through the final season, but we have a lot less time to watch now that Danielle’s back in school.
- The Amazing Race. Now that I’m finished with America’s Next Top Model, I switched back to The Amazing Race. I really love this show!
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
- Nothing! I focused on writing this week, and didn’t manage to post anything at all. Sorry!
