Weekend Roundup!

Hey everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty good, a lot more low key than Memorial Day weekend. ;)

Friday: Grocery store trip and I picked up a friend's long over due graduation gift. We also went by Academy and picked up tennis/workout supplies and I got two nice pairs of bermuda shorts. (not much to tell here)

Saturday: My school stuff came in. (I know I haven't updated you guys on that.) So now is as good a time as any. ;) After researching a few schools, prayer, and talks with the hubby...I decided to enroll in a correspondence/online school. I'm now studying to be a Medical Transcriptionist. (I actually read some intro stuff for my course, before posting this.) :) I'm very excited and feel that this will fit my personality perfectly. (I have the option of working from home. This would be pretty awesome because John and I hope to have children in a few years. I would love the option of being at home with them. I really look forward to that.) So that's where I am with school. After the excitement of getting my school stuff settled, we headed to Goodwill. We dropped off some stuff and picked up some new treasures.

I found the following:

Complete Sushi set (for John, the man is obsessed);) (I think this one had been opened, but gently used)

Pier 1 candles (never been opened)


Dear Mr. Henshaw by: Beverly Cleary

The Babysitters Little Sister Karen's Prize by: Ann M. Martin

James and the Giant Peach by: Roald Dahl

Hatchet by: Gary Paulsen

Pony Pals Pony Sitters by: Jeanne Betancourt

The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush by: Tomie dePaola

Fear Street The Cheater by: R.L. Stine

Fear Street The Best Friend by: R.L Stine

Officer Buckle and Gloria by: Peggy Rathmann

The following Little Golden Books:

Sleeping Beauty


Shy Little Kitten's Secret Place

The Biggest, Most Beautiful Christmas Tree

The Twelve Days of Christmas

The only adult book I bought. ;)

Moonlight Becomes You by: Mary Higgins Clarke

All of this for $36.78, not too shabby! ;)

Did anyone else read these books? If you read Fear Street, you will enjoy this blog:

I've decided that I don't want my kids to be obsessed with material possessions. I'm kinda breaking the rules with books. I want them to have the best book collection ever! :D We ended the day with playing tennis at the park and watching Why Did I get Married Too? This movie will make you want to hug your spouse a little closer and be thankful for the love you share. Tyler Perry seriously knows how to pull at my heart strings!

Sunday: We had a pretty lazy day. We listened to a church broadcast on the radio. We watched random stuff on Netflix and did some cleaning.

So that was my weekend. How was yours?

  1. What a great weekend. OF course anything including books makes it great! I thought about pursuing training in being a medical transcriptionist.... but it just didn't seem right for me. Glad you are excited about it. Thanks for the movie recommendation.


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
