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!
Sometimes to-go cups are perfectly acceptable when you wake up to peace like this. 🙂

Continuing to work on my own/gifted stack of books. This was my Book of the Month choice for July.
Here’s all the posts from this past week, in case you missed it!
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
I have never read a character like Stella. She is so beautifully written. She is complex and shows a range of emotions you can related too. I couldn’t help but feel her emotions through the page.
She can be very random at times so I feel a kinship to her. I read this in a day. It gripped me and took me for a ride.
Here is the Goodreads synopsis:
It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice–with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan–from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…
Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but to crave all the other things he’s making her feel. Soon, their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic…

My reads for this week are:
This is what is left of my owned/gifted stack. I can kick myself for letting some of these sit for so long. They were awesome.
So I am literally grabbing off this shelf after each read randomly.
I finally got into my classroom and put the furniture back where it goes. Our lovely custodial ladies wipe everything down each summer as well as strip and wax our floors. It is so nice to start the year in a sparkling clean room.
I also organized the science closet at my school which hadn’t been done in a while. I couldn’t believe what I found….volcanic ash from Mount St. Helen’s. I know right?!?! It was an incredible find.
Otherwise is was kinda low-key. I took the boys swim at a family member’s pool. Nathan had a scout activity to go fishing and learn boat safety. We also spent the night at the houseboat (the to-go cup pic up top)
We are also starting to pack and make grocery list for our week-long back to school camping trip. It will be a nice get away before the freight train leaves the station and school starts.
Where do I begin with this one?! Since upping my workout game at the beginning of summer I have found a need for this little gem.
Blended with peppermint, Deep Relief has a amazing cooling sensation that is down right awesome after a workout.
Especially those days when you need assistance sitting your body is so sore and achy, this roll-on is soothing, relaxing and convenient.
- Working in my classroom getting for the beginning of school which is in 20 days
- I am 5 books behind my Goodreads pace…slowly steadily catching up to the goal of 106. I may have to try and read some short ebook romances to get back on pace.
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
