Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 8/20/17

Sunday Post 33

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): I’m back! It’s funny because I realized that the heading above should say “This past month on FYFA.” I haven’t put up a Sunday post since 7/23! This is a definite first. Out of curiosity, I decided to take a look at my Sunday Post history, and since I started posting them in June of 2013, I’ve only missed five Sundays! (Before this past month, of course, when I just missed three more.) That seems kind of incredible to me. And this is also the longest blogging break I’ve ever taken. It feels a little freeing, but also very… Read more »

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): Another busy week in the Hewitt household! I finished that edit of the book I’ve been working on. Keep your eyes peeled for Acceptance by Trish Beninato since I’ll probably be featuring it here on the blog at some point! We also picked our daughter up from camp and dropped my youngest off for the bus for his camp. And, most exciting, our Japanese exchange student got here yesterday! We’re really excited to get to know him! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week: Do You Follow Authors You Haven’t Read? Let’s Discuss. Bite-Sized Reviews: Crash Land… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): The end of summer is sneaking up on me and I’m kind of scrambling. We take my daughter to camp tomorrow, so we’ve been getting her packed. I just finished up a second edit of my newest project, and now I need to get started on figuring out my curriculum for next year’s homeschool co-op classes before we go on vacation at the beginning of August (and, preferably before our Japanese exchange student gets here on the 22nd). So, if I haven’t been around to your blog recently, I promise that I’ll be doing more visiting soon!! We’ve been… Read more »

Sunday Post 36

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): I’m writing this post from the last swim meet of the season (for us—my kids aren’t championship swimmers). It’s an outdoor meet, so being on my computer in the sun is sort of challenging. Hopefully this post won’t be riddled with typos! This week I’ve been working on a second edit of a YA paranormal called Acceptance. I always love seeing what an author comes back with after that first edit—it’s exciting to see a book transform!  🙂 Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week: Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally: Review of… Read more »

Sunday Post 42

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. The past two weeks on FYFA (and in my life): Today is my son’s 15th birthday! It’s hard to believe that my little tiny boy has grown up so much—I think I’m still in denial. In case you didn’t notice, I didn’t post a Sunday Post last week because I was at ALA. I considered trying to schedule something, but I just decided to take a week off instead. A kind of crazy thing happened this week: I bid on an auction for Authors for Grenfell Tower (they raised almost $200,000 to go toward the Red Cross for the tragedy) and I WON! But the really crazy thing… Read more »

Sunday Post 34

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): This week has been hectic because my oldest and I were racing to finish his online chemistry course before he leaves for Japanese immersion camp (which he does today). Even though it’s technically an online class, 99% of the instruction was via the textbook, so I was going through it with him (he doesn’t learn well from just reading a book if it’s a subject he’s not interested in). Luckily, I like chemistry a whole lot more now than I did when I was in high school—except for labs (or, more accurately, the questions that go with the labs—a lot… Read more »

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): Today my husband and I are celebrating our 18-year anniversary. And since we dated for seven years before we got married (we were high school sweethearts), that means we’ve been together a quarter of a century! Pretty impressive, if I do say so myself. This week I tried to conquer my MASSIVE email inbox and I discovered two books that I’d been given for review that I’d somehow completely lost track of. I’m really embarrassed. Lately, my email has been completely out of control, no matter how hard I try to stay on top of it. I know I need to… Read more »

Last week on FYFA (and in my life): Had another fun week around here! My kids had a friend over who had moved to Boston in the spring, so it was great to see her and hang out in the pool (they braved the cold water!), at the dog park and at Great America amusement park.

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): Much better week this week (no robberies, so you know…). We got to hang out with family at my niece’s confirmation last Sunday and then we spent a fun day at Six Flags amusement park later in the week. Yesterday the kids had a swim meet. And, best of all, we got our August vacation all booked! We’re super excited because we’re renting an RV and heading to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for about a week. We’ve always had a sort of pipe dream of actually living in an RV, so this is a chance for us to experience a tiny slice… Read more »

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): This week started out great, but then got strange fast. I’ll start with the good. I’m writing this post from a swim meet again (on Saturday). We love swimming, but there’s lots of downtime. But that’s okay because that means I have plenty of time to write my Sunday Post today. Last weekend, my daughter had a piano/voice recital and she also had a little ceremony because she was one of the winners of our library’s literary magazine contest. She wrote a really adorable short story for my homeschool writing class and entered it in the contest. I’m super proud and impressed… Read more »
