Birthday Book Haul

My birthday was this month! Sometimes I wonder if I am getting too old to love young adult fantasy/sci-fi books as much as I do, but we can’t help who we are and what we like.

I never let a good holiday go by without asking for books, so here is what I got this month:

Fantastic Friday!

Five reasons life is wonderful:

1. Little man has begun making his first animal impression.Yesterday afternoon he ran around for at least an hour going “Hrggggh” “Hrgggghhhhh”, which is his interpretation of a donkey.

2. We got to go on a beautiful walk with our friends in the park today, and the day is wonderful, sunny, and beautiful. It’s great getting to live so close to friends now, I don’t have to worry about traffic on the way home! Before we moved coming home would take an hour, now it takes 5 minutes.

3. I felt nauseous earlier. This a good thing because according to the Mayo Clinic, women who feel nauseous during their pregnancy are less likely to experience big problems. I like to think of it as E. saying “Hi! I’m still here, don’t forget about me!”

4. I FINALLY finished reading the book I’ve been reading the last two weeks. That’s all I will say because this is a happy post and I will share my thoughts with you later.

5. My mom bought me pretty much everything on my amazon wish list for my birthday because she wants to keep my busy. I think she’s happy to be a grandma. (again). I received 3 Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbooks, a pot with steamer insert, and a Flavia De Luce novel (these books are adorable).

I’ve been slacking a bit with my new years resolution these last few weeks, but I need to get back into it. I think I am still ahead for the year because most of the weeks I went above and beyond.

The resolution was this: To try one new recipe a week (and expand my food horizons by trying new foods).

I hope your Friday was fantastic, too!

New Things / Cheesy Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Things have been busy here, but we are all alive and well!

We are about 80% moved in – the movers didn’t bring a big enough truck to empty out our storage units so they are going to finish up next Sunday. That was the only frustrating part to last Saturday. The best part was that almost everyone remembered it was my birthday. Everyone except for Little Man, but I forgive him because he doesn’t know what birthdays are.
