I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Tynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves and Mailbox Monday showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week, and It's Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted by Kathryn @ Book Date.
I've had a crazy, busy week, but also a very fun week and weekend. We celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. My son made a comment in the car on Friday when I was talking about how we were going to be going out to celebrate on a date that night and he asked how many years we'd been married. He said: "That means you've been married longer than I've been alive!" I told him that was the ideal, to be married before having kids. Lol! He just was processing and doesn't always filter, but it opened up an interesting conversation. ;)
I got a combined anniversary/Mother's Day gift of a Intuos drawing tablet (you can see it here and also in my additions below) and some software. I've had this on my wish list for a couple of years now and have missed it several times when I've wanted to be able to do some things with graphics and was limited with the mouse and the program I had. I have quite a few tutorials to go through to figure it all out, but I've already played around with it and it is so awesome!!! I know I'm going to love it!
For Mother's Day we have a special part of church tomorrow where the women will all be meeting together to celebrate womanhood and eat food and visit (there is always a time during church when the women meet, but they do something special on Mother's Day) and then we'll be eating dinner with my parents and I won't be cooking at all. It will be such a nice day!
On the book front, it's a pretty busy week with some fun books coming up. Here's what to expect:
The Instagram challenge, #WishfulWonder, that Rissi over at Finding Wonderland and I are hosting for May is just about half way through. You can find more info here (feel free to participate at any time, be it a day or two or more).
