Gosh talk about a whirlwind weekend! It was so busy but I got to attend the Rhode Island Author Expo for the 6th year in a row. I of course purchased a mountain of books (which I probably shouldn't have) but haven't yet listed it up above. I have a bunch of reading to get done this month if I am going to make my target of only 50 new books unread for the year.

We also did a ton of decorating this weekend, outside and inside the house. Munchkin was so excited to decorate the tree.  We also got to start our advent calendars, he has a 'magic mailbox' that has a holiday themed gift each day, usually a sticker sheet or Christmas book. He also has his Tsum Tsum advent calendar and we have a Peanuts picture one that gives us a fun holiday activity each day.  I have the Cushy Crate Advent box, you can follow my unwrapping each day on my Instagram.

Saturday kicked off my 7th annual Advent Reads event! I have some great holiday books to share with you this year and quite a variety too, so I hope you will stop by each evening to see what new book you may discover!

If you are looking for a reason to get started reading some of these holiday books, today kicks off the Tis the Season Readathon (announcement on Super Space Chick's Youtube) or @Tistheseasonathon on Instagram.  I will also be participating in this readathon with a mix of holiday and non holiday books (I will be getting my post up tonight after work).

So that was my week last week, and a bit of my week coming up! I hope you all have a great week filled with new adventures.
