Interesting Tidbits on the Web:


I finally finished Harry Potter!! I do have the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them but that should be a quick read and at least will feature different characters.  I will be working up a full series review on this and tell you my thoughts (and I do have quite a few thoughts but most will be unfavorable). With that said as soon as I finished that book I dived right into ACOWAR and didn't come up for air until it was done 3 days later. So that is the reason for the gap in posts last week but I don't regret it. I will also be posting a review of the series by Sarah J. Maas, again a lot going on with this one but not much I can discuss without spoilers so I will be debating how to post that review.

Friday night Hubby and I celebrated our 10th anniversary, we actually got a sitter and went out for dinner. It was wonderful to have time together but had to call it a night early because Hubby had to leave for work the next morning at 5:00am.  Saturday Munchkin had his award ceremony and fun day for Tball, he has one game left on Tuesday and that will wrap up his first sport season! Father's Day was a bit of a whirl wind, unfortunately poor Hubby had to do some house work to finish painting the basement wall so we can mount cabinets next weekend. But it will be made up for when we get to put his new grill together and he can BBQ to his heart's content.

I have gone on a little bit of a book buying binge and am waiting for several orders to come in but more on that soon!

Hope you all have a great week!


  1. I still think it's funny that you hated Harry Potter so much. I'm eager to hear your final thoughts on the series as a whole.

    1. It is kind of funny in a way, I just don't get it. I must totally be missing something to have so many people love it.
