It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
I still can’t get over how quickly the holidays are approaching. I’m running out of time to do all of the holiday preparations I still need to do and have a feeling that holiday cards might be the thing that I just cross off my list and skip this year. I love sending and receiving cards, but it seems like it just gets more and more expensive to do it and that I receive fewer and fewer cards from my friends and family each year as others have opted to do more of an online newsletter to sum up their year. I feel like the cards are just a dying tradition. Or maybe I’m just trying to justify in my own mind not sending them.
I’m heading out today to see a musical with my mom and sister, so I’m looking forward to that. We’re going to see The Sound of Music as part of the Broadway in Richmond series. Every year 4 or 5 Broadway shows come to our capital city so it’s a great way to see some shows without the expense of going all the way to NYC. My mom got me this ticket as a birthday gift back in October and I had actually forgotten all about it until she called me yesterday to finalize our plans. Oops!
We’re also doing a big holiday event at my office this week that I am completely unprepared for. An ambitious party planner has us doing a holiday cookie exchange, an ugly sweater contest, and a White Elephant Christmas all at the same time on the same day. Sometime between now and Tuesday I have to bake 4 dozen cookies, find an ugly sweater, and come up with a gift for the White Elephant party. Needless to say, I probably won’t be reading or blogging much in the next couple of days. After that though, I plan to have my nose buried in a book for the rest of the week!
Anyway, I think that’s it for me. Have a great week, everyone!
