It's September! Where Does the Time Go? + I Got a New Car

Hey! Happy Saturday!

It’s September! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. Is it just me?

This week went was a LOT better than last week, which is a blessing. I did get a car, YAY! I’m pretty set in my ways, so it’s no surprise that I got the same car, just a different color and a 4 door this time. I almost got an SUV but decided not to.

I had plans to attend the Decatur Book Festival this weekend but I’m actually not that impressed by the line up – so I might not go. There are so many things to do though! Blog wise, things are still rather slow at the moment! Booo.


Random note, that ugly bush behind the car is being cut down today! (hopefully)

Share with me:

  • How was your week?
  • Any plans for the holiday weekend (US folks)
  • What’s your favorite season?

      The blue is SO pretty! I see it everywhere now, which is funny. I am only half done with this fiasco, but things are going in my favor which helps me greatly.

      We did a lot of yard work Friday and Saturday, and i know exactly what you mean!

      Thanks! I love it too.

      i just started both, but they are okay so far! I know you were hesitant about Fighting to be Free, so I will be sure to tell you how it is.

    I am starting fighting to be free soon so I can’t wait to see what you think of it! I LOVED The boy who sneaks in my bedroom window so when I had a chance to grab this book, I was all over it!

    Your new car is gorgeous! I hope you love it!! I’m really interested in how you got the audiobook of A Shadow Bright and Burning for review! I’d really love to read that one but I don’t know how I can fit it into my physical book schedule. Have a great week!

    I’m glad you had a better week! And haha, I love that you got the same car. If you were happy with it, then it sounds like a good plan to me! I once bought two pairs of the same shoes, so I’m not one to talk lol. I drive an SUV though, so I totally would’ve supported that decision too had you gone with that car 😛

    And no it’s not just you, the year has gone by fast. Except I like the summer because I can’t stand cold weather, so I don’t want it to start getting cold yet! :-/
