 ~Weekly Wrap Up is my weekly version of 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.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

10 things that happened or I discovered this week.

1. I took the boys to see City of Bones. My verdict? I liked it. I like some of the changes they made but not all. I was hoping for more Magnus though, so that was disappointing. The boys’ verdict? It was a good thing we were ALONE in the theater because they were pretty vocal about the “awesomeness” Boys, right?

2. I lost another 2 pounds! Woot! My secret. CANDY, SODA and CHEETOS. Seriously, I eat too much junk.

3. My mated pumpkin is the size of a cantaloupe. SO excited.

4. We obviously know Titan is HUGE, but he is taller than my husband. By a good 6 inches. And he’s 6’1

5. I get to meet some of my blogger friends this weekend! I am SO exited!

6. Still have not planned out the reading challenge that my blogger bestie and I were planning. Yes, we still suck.

7. I colored my hair! YAY for no more gray! It wasn’t a lot but.. gray is gray

8. Zachary decided to test the temperature of a burner… while on. Yeah, he wont be doing that again. He’s OK 🙂 (Hmm, should I even be admitting this?! Bad parenting right there *smacks hand*)

9. I am at 93% for my Goodreads Reading Challenge. Debating on whether or not I will bump up the number..

10. In blog news, I will be planning two fantastic giveaways. Follow Appreciation being one. 🙂 *hugs to all*

    I really enjoyed City of Bones overall. I’m glad to hear the boys liked it. 🙂 I wish it was getting more response from fans. I want to go see it again to support it. Congrats on being down 2 pounds. That’s great.

    Looks like you got some good books too, even though they’re all new to me! Happy reading!

    I still need to see City of Bones! I’m glad overall you guys all liked it though. That makes me feel better. Gah! I need to color my hair too. I’m usually red, but I’ve been so lazy I haven’t done anything to it in awhile. Poor Zachary! I’m glad he’s ok though! It was fun to meet all of you guys! 😀 I stacked my books up last night after I got home and I’m pretty sure I went into cardiac arrest… I’m not even opening my bank account!

    Yay for Forever Innocent- fingers crossed it’s good!
