I‘m so late with this #checkin. I hope that when we start round 2 it‘ll be easier for me to remember to post 😔.

So I didn‘t reach my step goal, which I knew was going to happen. We are off for the summer so I don‘t walk around at work anymore, but I‘m not really upset about it. I decided that my first week off I would relax and regroup. I also started to do 10min morning yoga and 10min bedtime yoga. My legs definitely have been feeling it. 👇🏽

TheBookAddict This week I will also incorporate 2 5min intervals on our manual treadmill per day. I am trying a slow progression so I can get ready for round 2. I also got hooked on Pokémon go thanks to @DebbieGrillo so I‘ve been walking more since I joined it again?. Thanks again @wanderinglynn for this challenge. #BFC 2d

Enjoyed this book. I gave this 5 stars on goodreads and on audible because I knew that it was going to be a light mystery with humor, what I consider a cozy. It made me laugh and I enjoyed the mystery as well as the Obama/Biden relationship. It also touched upon important topics but they didn‘t overshadow the mystery. A gets a bit rushed at the end, but it‘s still enjoyable. The narrator did a great job. Oh, and a late #BFC check-in.

TheBookAddict @wanderinglynn I didn‘t think I was going to meet my goal this past week, but I actually surpassed it. I need to make out a plan for this week because I‘m not moving as much since school is out. I don‘t have preschoolers to run around with. 1w

My Ideal Bookshelf | Thessaly La Force

After having two overflowing boxes of books next to my recliner in the living room, for a really long time, I decided to get this small bookcase. I think it looks way better than an end table and it‘s definitely less expensive and can hold more 😏. So...I‘m thinking of getting another one for the other end of our big couch. We have so many books just everywhere that I would probably fill it up as soon as I put it together. #shelfie

We had a very busy and fun day. We woke up early (early compared to our normal during the weekends) and we went to the library for the Summer Reading Kickoff Party. After that we went out for brunch. Then we headed out to the fair where we met up with some friends. We all had a good time. On our way home @KennethTolesJr had to go to #BnN, because he just had to buy some books. When we got home we had #familyreadingtime and called it a day.

TheBookAddict I had a very small #bookhaul this time. Checkout Kenny‘s haul on his page. It‘s funny how Sy and Kenny both slouch the same way on the couch when they read. 😆 #familyfun #funatthefaur #litsyloveslibraries #TolesBoysRead #boysread #BarnesnNobleHaul #summerreadingchallenge (edited) 2w

Just letting my #BFC buddies know that I may be a bit late on my check-in post today, because I‘m busy with last school day stuff. Tomorrow is the last day of preschool for our kiddos and I decided that this year I‘d get them each a summer outfit. They get plenty of books and educational toys from donations and grants since we serve at-risk low income students, so I thought this would be helpful.

@Jess_Franzino what a great idea! I will be joining in the fun since I haven‘t read much this year and I have 70 book goal for the year. 🤦🏽‍♀️

Let‘s hope the library has by holds this afternoon so I can pick them up after work. 😁🤞🏽📚

🤣🤣🤣 you guys! I finished crocheting the bear yesterday...I told my husband it looks more like a mouse-bear because the eyes are too close together. I think that, other than the eyes, it came out pretty good for my first try at amigurumi. My husband decided to keep it in his office, since I‘m not giving that one away. He has named him Gilbert. 🤦🏽‍♀️ 😂

cobwebmoth He's adorable! 2mo

I‘m feeling a bit under the weather today, so this is what my Friday evening will consist of. I‘ll be crocheting the teddy bear for my lil nephew (he‘s expected sometime in the end of August). When I take breaks from crocheting I‘ll be reading a bit as well.

CouronneDhiver Exciting! I have a little niece coming soon 👶🏽 2mo
TheBookAddict @CouronneDhiver 🙌🏽 yay for baby nieces and nephews on the way! 😆 I can make an extra teddy bear and send it your way if you‘d like...if this one turns out. It‘s my first time making a 🧸. 2mo
CouronneDhiver Aw, that‘s so sweet. 🥰🥰 Let‘s see how you feel about this one and, if you‘re feeling brave enough to do another one, we‘ll connect. I always admire people who are talented at crafting ... so much patience! 2mo

Wow...It hit me in the feels. Marcus Vega, a middle school kid, has a lot on his plate. He loves his brother and his mother, who works really hard to make ends meet. When things get a bit out of hand his mom decides to take her family to visit family in PR. She‘s trying to spend time with her boys and regroup, but Marcus‘ focus is on finding his father who left them 10 yrs ago.
