Weekly Wrap Up~ (23)

 ~Weekly Wrap Up is my weekly version of the Sunday Post~

10 things that happened or I discovered this week.

1. I had to MATE my pumpkins. Male flower+Female flower= PUMPKINS. No joke, look it up.

2. My ability to “handle the duties of the room mom” was questioned because of my age. Yeaaaaaah.

3. The hubby got a job offer. It’s a travel job… but hey, it isn’t like I haven’t done that before.

4. I too, have a job interview next week. 😀

5. Titan decided he wanted to eat ALL THE THINGS on the counter the other day. There just so happened to be a pile of jalapeno’s. I don’t think he will be doing that again.

6. We finished The Game of Thrones, Season 3. HOLY BAT MAN y’all, I cried.

7. I have learned that there is a RIGHT and WRONG way to RATE a book on goodreads. “Just Rating” without the review is frowned upon by some. *shrug* who knew.

8. Some of the best people in your life are ones you have never met.

9. My son was mad that I didn’t take him to the release of City of Bones. I mean… MAD

10. Listening to the boys argue is THE funniest thing ever and usually the highlight of my day. Whatever that says about me. bahaha

      Thank you! I hope it goes well. It’s full time though, which might interfere with my blogging :/

      Shatter Me is one of my favorites! I am so glad i was able to find it cheap at the book store. AND, it’s the FIRST cover. Not the one with the freaky EYE. LOL

      I hope I enjoy If He Had Been With Me. I have this weird habit to only buy books I have read, so I am hoping it isn’t a waste. >.<

    1. tonyaleeh

      Yeah, it’s weird. Usually bees do all the work but if they aren’t, you can pollinate them yourself. Interesting, hmm?

      I hope to read Shooting Scars soon. Have you read it?

    PUMPKIN MATING! I was so waiting for this to be on here this week! LOL! AWWW! Your poor son! I still need to see City of Bones too! And I couldn’t agree more with #8!!!!!! I’ve heard alot of people like Karina’s series- I definitely need to check it out! And way to go on knocking out those ARC’s!!!

      Of course I was going to add it! This is something that NEEDS to be shared LOL

      You haven’t read ANY Karina!? What.. we must remedy this. I have ALL of her EIT books I will let you borrow them ALL. Creeeeeeepy stuff right there!

    1. tonyaleeh

      Thank you!

      I just saw some small tidbits about the goodreads thing but I don’t see what the issue is if you want to rate a book you read without a review. I understand the 5 stars that only say “Squeeee this is going to be so good” but c’mon.

    1. tonyaleeh

      It’s really good. You should read it soon! 🙂

      I love GOT. I can’t believe I had quit watching it before. I was so mad when.. YOU KNOW WHO died at the end of the first season LOL

    1. tonyaleeh

      It went pretty well. I am keeping my fingers crossed! I love the original cover of Shatter Me. The eyes are freaky and weird LOL
