The Sunday Post #47 (11.9.14)

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'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey

This past week I became an aunt again...my sister had baby #2 - Nora Elizabeth and I'm once again head over heels in love!!! This makes niece #10 and I can't wait to start spoiling her rotten just as I do with all the rest of my nieces and nephews. I went down early to my sister's so I could watch her 19 month old, who happens to be my goddaughter and we had so much fun. Then I took her to the hospital to meet her new sister - she's not too sure about this new baby, but she can say her name and it's really cute! Now that I know what sex the baby is, I'll be working on Nora's baby blanket this week. And, I have another new niece making her debut this coming week (hopefully!!!)...this one on my husband's side. More details on that in next week's post.
   
Have a great week everyone!!!

  9. Congratulations to you and your family. Babies are a blessing!

    Lots of interesting books on your list this week. I still haven't read Shopaholic to the Stars. The Jojo Moyes book looks good too.

  10. So many good books, don't know which to comment on :)
    I enjoy Sarah Jio, Tami Hoag, Diane Chamberlain, Lisa Jackson and Nancy Thayer, so we must have a common thread in our reading taste. Enjoy all of these!

  11. Congrats on your new niece. I'm envious of the Sarah Jio book, I think it comes out early next year? With all the books on my tbr shelf, I guess I can wait....lol.
