That’s a Wrap- February Edition

thats a wrap

“That’s a Wrap” is my new Monthly wrap up post. I will be linking up the Sunday post.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the 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 our blog for the week ahead.

So, back before I changed things, again, to my blog, I said that I was going to be mixing up my 10 Things. i don’t have anything NEW or whatever this month. I didn’t give much thought about it since there has been so much going on lately with the kiddos, work and such. I’ve had some friendships take a weird turn and dive, so I’ve been distracted.

Normal 10 things it is!

1.) If you missed my Tooth Fairy Story fail on twitter– here’s a rundown. I forgot. Again. In our early morning scramble, my husband slipped a $5 bill under the pillow.

2.) My husband was given a Kindle and since he doesn’t read much, he gave it to me. SO now I have two.

3.) Y’all remember months ago, how my husband was trying to take me skydiving for my birthday? And I put it off, saying we should go for HIS birthday? That’s this month. O______O

4.) We went to Bingo Night at the school a few weekends ago, and my mom called me to see what we were doing. I tried to explain that we were playing Bingo– but for some reason, wasn’t GETTING IT. When she asked me, for the 100th time, what we were playing, I yelled “BINGO” Not, the best idea, since everyone thought I had a Bingo

5.) My little man asked me to his Ball. Why the 1st graders are even having a ball, is anyone’s guess. Still, so cute.

6.) My other niece is getting married this Summer.

7.) We are almost done with the redecorating the bedroom. There are still quite a few thing that need to go back in order but I love it. 🙂

8.) I like to tune everyone out at work and either listen to music or an audiobook. Aaaaand, from here on out, I will be sticking to music. Smexy times should shouldn’t be heard at work. Just sayin. (THANKS WENDY FOR CATCHING THAT!!!)

9.) I made it 3 months with no SODA. Now, If I could kick all the sweets…. that would be GOLDEN.

10.) I am BEA bound.

    BINGO!!! Haha, just kidding! I bet that went over well…

    I wish you luck with the whole skydiving thing, I’m absolutely terrified of heights so my husband will never get me to jump out of anything, lol.

    I’m looking forward to your thoughts on Losing Faith, it looks really interesting!
