It's Monday What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey - while she is on break you can share your post by tweeting with the hashtag #IMWAYR

So we didn't make it to the concert. It was a crazy, busy, happy, overwhelming week of varied emotions, but mostly joy!!! On Saturday, my brother and his wife had their baby, a sweet little girl. She is 6 lbs 11 oz, and 20 inches long. She also has a full, thick head of dark hair!!! Wyatt already loves his little cousin - we put them next to each other in the Pack 'n Play, and they linked arms instantly. I am of course already so in love with her little face!

In other less exciting news but still good, we got a new car! We really needed one, and we now have a brand new Jeep Patriot. It is our very first brand new car ever. And finally, summer semester is over! Woohoo! I finished out the semester with a pair of matching A's in both of my classes. 

Read last week:

Owls Our Most Charming Bird by Matt Sewell: This was a quick and easy read! I really loved it, and it was written in short little snaps about each owl. I actually read it to Wyatt over the course of the week! It was fun.

Reading This Week:


The Forgotten by Heather Graham: I started this but haven't finished yet. I am enjoying it!

Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal: I am so excited to read this!


Not much. Mostly Pretty Little Liars, Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory. 


  1. Congrats on your family news, and for the car too. I think those Jeep Patriots are sharp! Looks like a pretty good week. :)

    That owls book looks very cool!

    1. Thanks Greg! It was a pretty good week!!

      It was really interesting. It was very different from what I expected as well.

  2. Congratulations on the new niece and the good grades and new car! Good news all around :)

    I have a copy of Kitchens of the Great Midwest to read for review. Can't wait to read your review. Have a great week!

    1. Thanks!

      I feel like I am going to have so much more time to read with school being over for the semester. There aren't any classes available for me to take fall semester either, so I am off the hook for a few! Woohoo!

  3. Welcome to your niece! Congrats on the new Jeep. I've driven one since 97 and love it.

  4. Congratulations to your brother and his family! Great job with the As! Enjoy your week!

  5. I'm thrilled you have an instant playmate for Wyatt-- how great! Congrats on the baby in the family, and the new car as well.
    It seems like Wyatt may adopt your love of birds as you read him books like Owls.. good to start birdwatchers young :)

    1. We got the cutest photos of the two of them together - the minute we laid them side by side they linked arms! It was so cute!!! The funniest part is that Wyatt looks like a giant next to her. Who knew my tiny peanut would ever look like the big kid? Lol.

      I fully plan on him becoming a bird nerd like me. ;) Lol.


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
