The Sunday Post #68 (4.19.15)

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. 

Spring is here and I am loving it!!! We had a glorious week, weather-wise, and the dogs and I definitely took advantage of it by taking some extra walks each day. Today, hubby and I are heading into the city to meet up with his parents to go see The New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall...I've never even seen the Christmas show, so I'm very excited to see this one, especially since Derek Hough from Dancing With the Stars is in it!!! Hubby is less than thrilled to be going, but is being a trooper none-the-less :)


Have a great week everyone!!!

  1. I'm so glad that spring weather is finally here and flowers are blooming. One of my favorite times of year (though I also love summer). Enjoy your trip to NYC. The event sounds like fun and hopefully your husband will enjoy it too :)

    I loved A Desperate Fortune and still need to write my review.

  3. Fun! I love Derek and if I was ever a celebrity and on the show he'd definitely be the one I'd want as a partner. The Mapmaker's Children sounds really good and Jane Casey has just recently landed on my radar but she sounds fantastic. Have a great week!
