It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. I love this meme, it helps me stay on track ... well, most of the time. Thanks Sheila!

*Squeee* so excited to finally share I'm going to be a Nonna in June, seeing Anthony & Christine's little baby on ultrasound was such a special event to share, I'm still smiling and teary at the absolute amazement of 3D ultrasound ... just precious!

And I ran out of time last week to share the pics of Alaine and I playing ladies for my birthday high tea ... gorgeous decor and delicious food at Willow's Tea Room ... can't wait to scrap the pretty photos.

  5. Congratulations, that's awesome. Glad you liked Eleanor & Park- I'll probably give it a try since I liked Fangirl. Rainbow Rowell seems to really be on a roll...

  17. Ooh, definitely "squee-worthy" news. Enjoy being a Nonna. I'll never forget my first grandson, and how the parents announced it by giving me a framed ultrasound photo. That baby is now almost nineteen!

    The ultrasounds now are so much better, though!

    Enjoy your reads...and your High Tea looks delicious and gorgeous!
