The Sunday Post #16 (3.23.14)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.   

I've decided to try a new weekly meme - a place where I can do both a weekly wrap up and share what books I get all in one post, so I'm going to give The Sunday Post a try, and also link up with Sheila's It's Monday Post over at Book Journey.  


Today my town has a huge St. Patrick's Day parade and so we are having some family and friends over. My town has the second biggest parade outside of NYC, and it's always the Sunday after St. Patrick's Day, unless St. Patrick's Day falls on a Sunday (in which case our parade takes place on the actual day since they can't march in the city on that day - can't march past St. Patrick's Cathedral on a Sunday!). Anyway, since we live four houses off the parade route, we have a big bash - I do bagels and coffee before the parade and then corned beef and cabbage for after. It's a lot of fun and despite the fact it's supposed to be a bit chilly, it will be good to see some of my nieces and nephews as well as some friends we haven't seen in a while!
 

Have a great week everyone!!!
