Weekly Update #229, It was a good week...

Welcome to my Weekly Update where I post my blog's schedule for the week!

I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book ReviewerTynga'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 feel so accomplished as I've looked back over my week... I didn't get as much reading done, really none done, but I did some serious yard work, stayed on top of the kids' homework, kept the house relatively clean, enjoyed my son's birthday (we now officially have a teen in the house - can I skip back a year???) and spent some serious quality time with the family. I also received my license that I had been studying for and am so relieved to have done and joined life back on Instagram. I feel like life is smoothing out and I hope it stays that way for a long while.

Also, if you didn't notice, I did a little blog redesign. I've wanted posts to show up like they do now on my home page for forever and the lady I use, Georgia Lou Studios, finally released this option. I've known it was coming since last spring, so to say I'm excited about the new look is quite an understatement. There might be a few tweaks here and there, but it's pretty much good.

One last thing to note, that I wanted to share about, is that Cratejoy is joining in the effort to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. I'm going to share most of their message (with permission) here, for those interested:
As an Austin-based company, our hearts go out to anyone affected by Hurricane Harvey, and we want to share ways to help.
  • Check here for a list of ways to help those affected. 
Additionally, we have had a huge outpour of support from our seller community.
  • Check here for a collection of sellers donating to disaster relief funds. 
Cratejoy has organized an internal donation drive and will be donating to The Greater Houston Community Foundation directly. 

The devastation in the area is just completely unbelievable to me, so my heart goes out to those in Texas!
