That's a Wrap Weekly

Happy Sunday! Welcome to my latest That’s a Wrap Weekly. Don’t forget, you’ll find this mashup of Stacking the Shelves and Sunday Post each week right here. 🙂

Happy Sunday! How was your week?

Last week was pretty tame for me, all in all. I spent a couple hours Wednesday evening at the National Press Club with some other awesome DC-area bloggers for the launch of Eleanor Herman’s Legacy of Kings. Now, in all honesty, I snuck out before the official launch event, but I had a great time at the wine and cheese mixer beforehand. I wasn’t sure it was a book I would enjoy, but I think I’m starting to warm to it. Maybe I’ll add it to my TBR after all.

The only other real thing of note from last week is that some of my friends and I have decided to take on the 21 Day Fix. One of our friends had fantastic results and her story was a huge inspiration. I don’t have any idea how successful I will be, but I’m actually excited to get started. I’m waiting on the package to show up, but I’m slowly weaning myself off sugar so it isn’t as much of a shock to my system when the time comes. I probably won’t start until after I return from my trip to Pittsburgh the weekend of September 11-14 because I think my first week of the challenge probably shouldn’t be tackled while traveling. Regardless of when I start, it’s going to be interesting. I’m anxious, but excited. So I’m taking that as a good sign.

I hope this week flies by. Which, because I start vacation on Thursday, it won’t. But the awesome thing is, once I make it to Thursday, I don’t return to the office until September 15. Huzzah! It’s mostly a staycation, which I’m totally psyched about, but I’m also going to see my folks and attend the Black & Gold Author Event in Pittsburgh. There I will be reunited with two of my bookish besties – Betsy and Kaitlan – and finally meet three of my most favoritest authors – Krista & Becca Ritchie and Kristen Ashley. I CAN’T WAIT.

OH! And do you like giveaways? I mean, who doesn’t? I have three going on right now – two on Twitter and one on Facebook. Just in case you’d like to check them out. Just click the photo to hit up the post!

Since I found a copy of Lola and the Boy Next Door (with the original cover) on Book Outlet, I’ve been searching for a copy of Anna and the French Kiss (with the original cover) to add to my shelves. I found this one on Amazon. And SURPRISE it was signed!
