The Sunday Post #45


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:

I missed last week's Sunday Post and thinking back I can't remember exactly why. I'm thinking we stayed busy all day but I'm also pretty sure there was a nap involved so... yeah. 

The Husband and I saw Fifty Shades Darker last weekend. It was a really good adaptation of the book and I thought it was even better than the first movie. Christian Grey smiling and laughing... who knew? 😉

My re-do of the master bedroom continues. A couple weeks ago it was pillows and throws. Today it was lamps and flowers. There's more I want to do but I enjoy taking my time to find the pieces I want. Me + home decor = ♥♥♥

    1. I downloaded the audio version of Tell Me Three Things on a whim and ended up really enjoying it. Really solid YA contemporary - if you're ever so inclined. :)

    1. Well, I got a lovely compliment last night. After the new lamps and other items were in place The Husband told me thank you for making our home so nice. When you look at that way (making nicer surroundings for you both) maybe your husband will be on board. :)

  11. I like your photo at the end. More people should follow that philosophy before they speak.

    Hope you have a great week,

    1. Isn't that the truth? If only we all remembered that before we spoke.

  12. It sounds like you had a pretty nice week, Tanya. And I'm glad you're having so much fun redecorating your bedroom. :) I want to paint mine...been meaning to since we moved in. 5 years later and it's still Vulcan Blue...Sooo not my color! LOL I'll get there eventually. You got in some good-looking reads last week as well as acquiring some new ones. I'm intrigued the Zapata's, as well as Cross' and Jacobs'. I look forward to seeing your thoughts on them.
    Oh, and I love the quote. Yeah, everyone should heed that advice. It's good advice!
    Have a great week!!

    1. Vulcan blue, huh? That sounds... bright. :) Painting is such a pain. Luckily I'm still happy with the color in the bedroom (three walls are cream, one accent wall is painted rhubarb) so I don't have to endure that mess. The Julie Cross book was really cute and more emotional than I thought it would be. I'm reading the one by Jacobs (Goodnight, Nic) right now and it's so much fun.

  13. Naps always take priority. Always. I've heard that Fifty Shades Darker was a lot better than the first one. I haven't read the series, so I'll probably wait until it's on video.

    GOOD LUCK ON YOUR REMODEL!!

    1. Oh no, that's too bad! My husband is good about watching those movies with me: romance, rom-com's, chick flicks, etc. He's a good sport. :) I'll try to remember to share some pics next week. :) I wish I had taken some before shots - not that I've done anything dramatic, just little touches here and there - but still. And that cover for Purple Orchids is totally gorgeous!
