The Sunday Post #59 (2.15.15)

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  

Brrr...it's downright frigid today! We got some more snow yesterday, but not nearly as much as they were predicting...thank goodness! But, with the cold temps that we had last week, today and this week coming up, there is no chance of any of this snow melting any time soon :( At this rate, we'll have snow right through until Easter! Oh well. Valentine's Day was nice - hubby and I went to Philly for the day to visit his buddy at the Philadelphia Tattoo Convention. I don't have any tattoos, but it was really cool to see some of the tattoo artists from Ink Master and Best Ink in person (one of my guilty pleasures is watching those shows!). Earlier in the week, hubby had sent me a lovely bouquet of red tulips and purple irises (my favorites!) and a box of chocolate-covered strawberries, which we finished up last night!!!

Have a great week everyone!!!

  2. Oh I can't wait for your review of Violets of March! I loved Goodnight June and have been wanting to pick this one up as well. The tattoo convention sounds fun. I don't have any tattoos either but the shows are fun to watch. Have a great week and stay warm!

  10. I love tulips! (And chocolate - though that's a no-brainer, surely!)

    We have some similar tastes as I've read a few on your list this week.

    Enjoy!
