Project BG3: Week 43 – The Climber

Project BG3: Week 43 – The Climber

BG3, Project BG3 1

So, I think BG3 is going through an episode of teething again this week. She’s been pretty fussy and exhausted. It’s pretty hard for her to nap peacefully, especially if we’re not taking care of her during the day. It can’t be helped though and it’s good that she’s sleeping okay at night. It’s been a pretty long time since those two bottom teeth made their appearance and I have… Read more »

Blog Tour: The BGs Review – Ninja Bunny by Jennifer Gray Olsen

Blog Tours, Children's Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

The BGs Review is a feature on the blog where my daughters and I review children’s books.

One Line: Such a fun and hilarious read. I thought Ninja Bunny was a very cute and fun book and I really… Read more »

One Line: A very fun cast of characters and I love the setting. In My Opinion: Add to cart! Hello, I Love You is a very cute and quick read that I really enjoyed the whole time I was reading it. As far as YA contemporary books go, this was one of the better ones for me. I’ll admit the most appealing aspect to me was that it was set… Read more »

Book Review: Spelled by Betsy Schow

Book Review: Spelled by Betsy Schow

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★

One Line: Great start, but some things didn’t work for me. In My Opinion: Worth a try! This was a case where the book starts are strong and so charming, but ends up being an okay read. After reading that synopsis, I was so excited to give this one a read. I love retellings and this sounded like fun. After only a few sentences in, I immediately liked it. There… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 42 – Nooooooo

Project BG3: Week 42 – Nooooooo

BG3, Project BG3 1

Why the title? BG3 has learned the cutest thing this week: How to shake her head “No”. Not a big thing, I know, but it totally surprised me when she did it a few times this week, and actually meant it. I tried to offer her water, head shake. I offered her another bite of food, head shake. Her dad tried to take her from me, head shake. That’s basically… Read more »

Book Review: The Cage by Megan Shepherd

Book Review: The Cage by Megan Shepherd

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★★

One Line: So compellingly good, I couldn’t stop reading! In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW! What an amazing book! I was a fan of Megan’s already, so I knew I was going to enjoy this book, but I had no idea how compelling and addicted I would become. I honestly couldn’t stop reading and when I absolutely had to put it down, I kept thinking about it, eagerly waiting until… Read more »

Unbox Me: May Fandom of the Month Club

Unbox Me 1

May was LOTR month. Even though I’m not exactly a part of this fandom, as long as the jewelry pieces look nice, I’ll be happy. Thankfully, they were good this month. I’ve totally been meaning to read LOTR. Maybe someday! And I’ve only seen bits and pieces of the movies. Ack!

Project BG3: Week 41 – First Time at the Water Park

Project BG3: Week 41 – First Time at the Water Park

BG3, Project BG3 0

This week has been pretty relaxed, just spending time with the baby before I have to leave, yet again, for 6 weeks for a prep class. There hasn’t been anything new in the milestone dept, she’s just chugging along and doing her own thing. One thing she has started doing lately is crawling up the steps! It’s crazy leaving this girl on the floor and you turn your head for… Read more »
