The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.
Man another busy week!!! I celebrated my 30th birthday on Monday – some friends and family got together and went to Babe’s Chicken for dinner. I saw a couple friends I hadn’t seen in over a year! And I met another’s husband for the first time! It was a lot of fun… until they told the waiter that it was my birthday. They put a chicken hat on my head and made me flap my arms like wings…. And someone took a video, so I guess I have to share. I was laughing so hard! It’s taken on a smart phone, so not the best quality.
I also got the best birthday present ever from my BF:
On Tuesday I went to another bookclub meeting for the first time – this one is called CoverGirls book club – and it such a big fun group! Felicia also belongs to this book club, although she wasn’t able to go this week. It was tons of fun meeting people just as excited about books as I am. And I got all setup to attend Buns and Roses – a literacy auction held locally – this October. I’m super excited because Kim Harrison is the speaker (she NEVER seems to come this far west, so I’m excited!) AND we have a table sitting with Jennifer Ashley! There’s a ton of other authors that will be there, too – so I’m really looking forward to it 🙂
Then on Friday – which was Friday the 13th with a full moon BTW – we went on another 5k! This time it was a zombie run at night. My stepson is OBSESSED with zombies. When I met him he was 4 years old and I swear, the first thing he really told me about was zombies. We had a great time and I managed to do it in 45 minutes this time – a 15 minute improvement from my previous 5ks. Here’s all of us before and after the race:
If you’re interested, my step-son has a YouTube Channel and actually made a short video about the race. It’s fun but you have to get to about halfway to really see the race stuff, since he does some pre-race talking. It’s super fun to watch though 🙂
And that’s it for me – except a quick reminder that COYER Summer Vacation starts this Saturday, June 21st!! If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s not too late! Sign up here!

What kind of series do you like to read? Pamela @ Reading is Fun Again talks about the different kinds of series and what she likes in this week’s Thoughtful Thursday post.
Do you find yourself using multiple Book Review/Cataloging sites? I do! NoseGraze discusses what she wants in a review/cataloging website and I can’t help but hope she’s going to brain storm something way better than goodreads 🙂
