Weekly Round Up [51]

That's a Wrap Weekly

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

Not a whole lot new around here. Work is keeping me busy. Reading is keeping me busy. I’ve read some really, really good books over the last few days. You’ll see my reviews for those soon(ish). I decided to try to up my social media game for the blog, so I’ve created some new graphics for sharing on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram. You might’ve seen ’em if you follow me. I spent some time on Sunday and again on Saturday at the FDR Memorial in DC. It’s always been one of my favorite spots and it’s just that much more so now that it’s a great place to chill and hunt Pokémon. (And read while you’re killing time waiting for Pokémon to come around.) It’s always hopping with other people playing the game and I’ve met several cool people there. I can’t wait until the weather chills out… literally… so I can get out a little more often.

Most exciting news from last week:
I’m taking vacation in August! I’ve got a short trip home to PA planned, but after that I’m just doing whatever I want around here. Staycation rules.

Biggest obsession from last week:
The Democratic National Convention. I didn’t watch much of it live, but I spent a fair amount of time catching up on speeches each morning over coffee.

Fun thing from last week:
I got my last Disney Hipster Princess Funko Pop in the mail! I love her!


My FitReaders Challenge is still going alright. Nothing special, but I’m moving. (Not as much as I want to because of the temperatures and the humidity, but still.)

Hope you had a great week!

  1. Sadly, my staycation and summer are over beginning tomorrow. Good luck with catching your Pokémon! A neighbor to my son wandered into their house by surprise because a Pokémon was there. The look on his wife’s face when she walked in on him…priceless!

  2. I wish I had national monuments in MY backyard 😉 Fantastic!!!!! It must be soooooo awesome to live around DC!!! And I remember when all my vacations were trips home to see the folks 🙂

    What is UP with this summer!? I know it’s hot and steamy there usually but there’s breaks usually, right?? Well, we’ve cooled a bit so hopefully it’s coming your way *blows the wind your way*

    Awesome books this week!! I keep toying with reading Sophie Jordan’s historicals…. someday!!!! I just need to read faster!!! 🙂

  3. Oh a staycation sounds like a great idea Kim. Will do you more or less reading when staycationing? I think I’d do less as I’d binge on TV etc more!

    And I love the Ariel funko pop thingy. Very cute.
