Weekend Wrap Up

Monday, March 18, 2013

It's time for my weekly blog recap!
As always, I'll be linking up with Sami at Sami's Shenanigans

I started off this week blogging about a dear friend of mine. Her daughter's dad was just diagnosed with cancer and a few of my blog friends have been amazing and donated money for this family. I truly appreciate you all for your help & support- thank you!

My husband totally surprised me on Tuesday when he came home with this. Yes, a Silhouette Cameo! I was completely shocked and surprised. I still am in fact, because I've been too excited/intimidated to make anything with it so far, besides cutting out a piece of paper. More on that later.

I won this awesome custom made Harry Potter wineglass from Kim at Latte & a Prayer. Isn't it adorable? I am a huge HP fan in case you didn't already know.

I shared this pic on Twitter showing how long my hair has grown. I've been contemplating cutting it because it's just so much work to wash, style, and care for, but I can't bring myself to do it! I'm too attached to it.

I hosted another week of Things I {don't} Love

Friday was our reveal day for the Lucky Leprechaun book & polish swap. My swap partner Tawny was so great and got me Game of Thrones and 3 nail polish colors! I however, failed miserably and wrote her address down wrong, so she's still waiting for her package to make it to her (which hopefully it will, or it'll come back to me). To make it up to her though I sent her 5 books for her Kindle! Check out her post here to see what she got.

Google seriously sent the blog world into an uproar when they announced they'd be closing Google Reader as of July 1st. Luckily, my bloggy BFF Sarah wrote this post last month about why Bloglovin will rock your socks. Check it out!

I made some good progress on this book. It's the 2nd book in the series and it's pretty dang good so far!

I kept myself very busy on Sunday & invited the kids' friends over for a double playdate.
The boys played a lot of video games while the girls played dress up. Typical.

 Check back tomorrow for the 2nd post in my DIY Gel Nail series. You don't want to miss this one!

Hope you all had a great weeekend!
