Monday I joined in the Show & Tell link up sharing my want, need, wear, & read wish list THEN on Tuesday I blogged for a really special day, the biggest charitable day of the year! I shared some of the organizations we chose to donate to and support, ones that we follow year round and donate to when we can as well.
On Wednesday I blogged all the details from our holiday weekend!
We walked quick after we got home from work with the little daylight that was still left and then enjoyed A Charilie Brown Christmas last night!
Earlier this week I had to run a quick errand and decided to load up the beags to take them for a ride with me, it took me longer and certainly wasn’t convenient but sometimes its just about saying yes and including them regardless! I think they enjoyed it and were also slightly confused of the purpose lol
I was a little all over the place with my reading this month between reading a physical book & a couple digital books too!
The End of Men by Karen Rinaldi
I picked this book up in Denver when we visited the Tattered Cover Bookstore, a really well known independent bookstore that has been in operation for over 40 years. I sadly forgot to take any pictures during the hour or so we spent there but I was in love! We visited 2 locations and both had such a cozy feel with vintage furniture perfectly placed throughout, yummy smells, and the best service. So anyway, obviously I had to support them and buy a book! This was one I randomly picked up, had a good review tagged with it and was on a couple lists for books to read in 2017 so I thought sure, why not!? Well, I can’t say it was my favorite but I did still enjoy it nonetheless. It made me think a little more about the stigmas we place on each other and ourselves as women and how to correct some of that.
What She Knew by Gilly Macmillan
This was the book chosen for the October book club hosted by Novels & Noms. I’m not one to typically pick up a thriller/mystery but I really liked this, so I think I might try to choose books of this genre a little more often! This one was about a mom who son was abducted while they were out on a walk in the park. It really kept my interest and I was constantly shocked at how it was playing out!!! I also read this one digitally which was a big change for me and I felt like it slowed me down a bit, maybe just because I read on my phone and there are so many other distractions at my fingertips as well…
Yes, Please! by Amy Poehler
This was a really quick, fun read! This one was digital on my phone as well and it worked well. If you’re a fan of Amy Poehler I highly recommend it because it reads funny just like she seems. It also provided a lot of insight on those in the comedy industry and trying to make it. Of course there was some from her personal life as well. Amy certainly didn’t hold anything back and there may have been a couple spots I skimmed over but all in all I thought it was really good.
