The Sunday Post #89 – Wrapping it Up

Kim @ย The Caffeinated Reviewer, is our hostess with the mostest for the weekly Sunday Post where I’m wrapping things up. It is the perfect opportunity to share what happened here on my own blog, as well as some of the happenings elsewhere in the Blogosphere.


Today, we’re celebrating my oldest daughter’s high school graduation! It’s going to be an emotional day, I’m sure – because it’s a way to show that she has excelled in one part of her life, and she will start something new and different from now on. She is going to work full time starting at the end of August, and she’s really happy about not going straight to more studies – she’s quite sick of it for now.

On Monday, two of the kids, Mr. Freddy and I are driving down to our vacation place in Spain, and I’m going to spend the whole summer there, until about one week before school starts back up at the very end of August. I can’t wait to get the change of scenery, be close to the sea, and also visit with my sister and her two children who are joining us for two weeks.

  1. Loving Freddy on his road trip! So cute! I’m so jealous…wish I could go and spend the summer relaxing somewhere. I’m not long back from holiday but don’t feel any benefit from it…! Have a great time!

  2. Freddy is so adorable! Congrats to your daughter too! An exciting time in her life! I hope you enjoy your new books. Have a great weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. OK those M/M books have such adorable covers! I love them and they are totally making me smile.
    Congrats to your daughter on graduating HS! That’s smart of her to take some time away from studies. I didn’t do it and I should have. I’m doing it now before my Masters and it’s been good to recharge and refresh.
    Have a wonderful week and happy reading!

  4. Yay for daughter hitting the first education milestone.
    Do enjoy your summer in Spain.

    Oh very nice when you get surprises in the emailbox. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great week!

  5. Congrats on your daughter’s graduation! And yay for vacation- enjoy Spain! Sounds like a nice sunny place to hang out for a few months. ๐Ÿ™‚ As usual the Freddy pics are cute- I’m sure he’ll enjoy the seaside too. I’m kinda anxious for The Woman in Cabin 10 so will be watching for your review.

    Yay to Ms. Kenyon! Love her books. Sounds like congratulations are in order. Graduation is a HUGE milestone, and I’m happy for your family. Hope you can share some pics. Of course, I always adore seeing the perfect puppy, who makes me smile. You are so blessed to travel to these exotic locales. Sounds like the perfect place to fish, read and relax! Have fun!!!! Hugs..RO

  7. Congrats to your daughter on her graduation! YAY!
    I am super jealous of you going to Spain for the summer. I wish we could spend the summer at the shore house but my parents would drive me nuts and I have a cat to look after since she isn’t allowed to come. Need to start working on getting my own shore house ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have a great week, Lexxie! Give Freddy a big hug for me! He’s is such a cutie!!! ox

  8. Congrats on your daughters high school graduation! Also, I hope you enjoy your vacation. It sounds so nice to be able to take that much time off and go somewhere! A change of scenery is always nice ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Congrats to your daughter on graduating! What a great accomplishment! And enjoy your vacation! Im jealous!
    Freddy is too cute curled up on that blanket!

  10. Congrats to your daughter on her graduation (and to you and hubby as well of course!).

    And Spain… I’m so envious. I’ve never been – have actually only been to Portugal in Europe and that was for 6wks to learn Portuguese when I was going to work in Mozambique in Africa for 2yrs. I really want to go to Italy at some point.


  11. oh yay for your daughter’s graduation, that is so fun and congrats!!! Her life is so going to change. But in many good ways. I really liked the celibacy shaming discussion post as well. I see this quite a bit in books, where especially heroines, are shamed pretty badly by others if they haven’t had sex and yeah its pretty frustrating, because it happens so frequently in real life so its good that some authors bring a deeper understanding of it. I love the books you got. Carina Press is pretty fun and I love getting gifts like that. Sourcebooks Casablanca is the one that gives me goodies every now and then. ๐Ÿ™‚ Love that. Hope you enjoy these.

    Your summer plans sound wonderful! Have a great time with that awesome backdrop to your reading ๐Ÿ˜‰
