Weekly Wrap Up & Sunday Coffee (7/8)

on

Hey y’all! Weekly Wrap Up is a bleep where I give quick recap about my blog, reading adventures, and life in general of the past week. I also may include some rambling!

Sorry  I am little late. It was rougher than I thought coming home and getting back to my routine.

  • The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

Still working on my own/gifted stack of books. This was my Book of the Month choice back from June.


Here’s all the posts from this past week, in case you missed it!


Still Me by Jojo Moyes

My Thoughts: 

Where do I begin with Louisa. Have you ever felt like you have lost yourself or you don’t know who you are? Or did you realize later that you were changing yourself for someone?

Louisa’s discovering of herself in Still Me was wonderful. She also was learning the art of letting go as well. I felt a kindred spirit thing while reading her and her journey. I wanted to laugher with her one moment then cry with her the next.

four-starsfour-starsfour-starsfour-stars I WOULD PULL AN ALL-NIGHTER — This book was a really enjoyable read. I really liked it. Some moments I may have even loved.  There may have been a few things that I felt could be improved upon.  Or there may be nothing wrong with the book, it just didn’t blow me away.  I would recommend this book to most people and think most people would really enjoy this book.

Here is the Goodreads synopsis:

Louisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She steps into the world of the superrich, working for Leonard Gopnik and his much younger second wife, Agnes. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her new job and New York life.

As she begins to mix in New York high society, Lou meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. Before long, Lou finds herself torn between Fifth Avenue where she works and the treasure-filled vintage clothing store where she actually feels at home. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself: Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart that lives in two places?

We had a pretty quiet week which was nice until Thursday. I left my boys at home to go with the girls for a weekend at the beach. It has become an annual thing for the ladies in Matthew’s family. We have an absolute blast and get to remind ourselves that we are just girl who want to have fun. LOL

Check out our weekend trip fun in a post later this week. So come back.

Acceptance

YOUNG-LIVING-Essential-Oils-Acceptance-5.jpg
A lovely blend of Geranium, Frankincense, Sandalwood, Blue Cypress, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, and Rose.

This blends purpose is to promote feelings of acceptance,  as well as helps overcome procrastination and denial. I t may also ease stress during times of change.

Just opening the cap and taking a few deep breaths is wonderful. I will even diffuse it when there is something that I don’t like but have to deal with.

Who couldn’t use help accepting things we can’t control?!?! {raising my hand}


  • Lounge around for a little while longer but the work in my classroom begins to get ready for the new school year.
  • I am 4 books behind my Goodreads pace…slowly steadily catching up to the goal of 106?!?!


That’s all y’all…LOL! How was your week? Have you read any of the books I listed…give me the scoop? Any thoughts about my week? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by! — xx

      1. No, I’m still unsure whether or not I want to read it, because my TBR is huge enough as it is. 🙈

        I think we all have that problem. 😳 I quit checking out books from my local public library just to work on TBR stack at home. It is so hard not to snatch new choices up when I bring my kids to the library. 🙁
