Sunday Post - 174 & Stacking the Shelves - 125

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Busy week. Baby Girl got her first cold this week. I've felt so bad for her. She's feeling better now though. Friday night we went to dinner with a couple of Husband's high school friends. And then Saturday we went to an annual Christmas family reunion. Baby Girl did so well at both. On a book reading front, I don't see any way that I can keep up my 2 books a week reading goal next year. It's okay because being Mom is more important, but I do hate that I don't see myself being able to keep up with two book reviews per week. We'll see how things go.
