Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



It was a lazy, rainy week here in Rhode Island.  I should have been busy cleaning the house but with an entire week of gray, cold weather I don't think anyone feels like cleaning. So I spent most of the week reading and enjoying myself with Munchkin.  I also had some new bookshelves to prep and paint (I will be having a little series of posts about this soon).

Of course all last week was Children's Book Week! I hope you found some new fun books to enjoy with little ones (or on your own too because let's face it, we are all still kids inside).  Not only that but Star Wars Day also happened, which was awesome! Munchkin is becoming a fan too (even though I won't let him watch the actual movies until he is at least 5).  Then we also had Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, this is the second time Munchkin and I have participated and we are finally starting to get a hang of it. Munchkin is still a little small to enjoy the full effect but soon we will be able to spend the entire day celebrating.  On top of all that excitement it was also Mother's Day on Sunday.  Munchkin and Hubby spoiled me with lots of delicious food!

I hope you all had a wonderful week!


  1. I think the whole country must have been rainy last week. I'm not looking forward to the heat of summer but a week of pouring rain was a bit much.

    1. I don't mind if it rains but the cold on top of it was just too much. I prefer heat, as long as it doesn't come with humidity.

    1. It was a very busy week but it was so worth it! Munchkin had a blast with everything and really loved that I let him wear his Superman costume for Free Comic Book Day!
