The Sunday Post #26


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's a chance to share news - a post to recap the past week on your blog, 
showcase books and things we have received, and share news about what is
coming up on your blog in the week ahead. You can find the info here:

Happy weekend! I've had such a great week and I hope you have, too. I'm in the midst of enjoying a long weekend. I haven't had any time off in a while (being at home with pneumonia last month does *not* count as time off LOL) so I decided to take a couple days around my birthday and just relax and enjoy. On Friday I went out to lunch and then kicked back and enjoyed a mani-pedi. Heaven! On Saturday my husband and I hopped down to Orlando for a little day trip. We hit up a Barnes & Noble (I don't know why, but I'm convinced that particular B&N is better than all the ones here at home) and then IKEA.


We bought a new bookcase at IKEA so cue the happy dance. :) My husband spent several hours putting it together this morning and now the real fun begins... filling it up! And, finally, we went out for a fabulous meal at Terra Gaucha tonight. Good food, beautiful surroundings, and great company. 
I couldn't ask for more.


Tuesday, September 13: Choosing my top 10 contemporary romances is an exercise in futility. There are just too many! But I had a go at it and came up with 10 that I truly loved. 


Friday, September 16: Freebie Friday is back this week for round two! If you see anything you like in that big stack of books, be sure to enter the giveaway!

    1. Ugh, I so get it, Kristin. I think it's every book lover's dilemma... where to put all the books! I just recently did a big weeding out (hence my Freebie Friday giveaways) and I'm still going to be hurting for room. *sigh*

  6. Awesome that you got some "me" time around your birthday, and yeah for new shelves! I have heard such good things about It Ends With Us, obviously I need to get it. I love the quote at the end, too. That is just so damned true. Have a great week!

  7. Extra points to hubby's favorite HP house for putting together the bookcase! It's going to look so good in that room with your other shelf! I love the pictures you posted Tanya!
    And speaking of pictures, what an awesome photo of the two of you at dinner! I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your birthday! Happy birthday (again)! Enjoy your time off!
