Sunday Stew is a Weekly Meme hosted lovingly by Books Devoured. Feel free to visit and link up and share! I am super excited to actually be linking up for the SECOND consecutive week. I am so on it!! Just kidding! Hopefully this is a good sign that I might be actually getting my stuff together!
Bookmark of the Week:
This week is a bit of a step up from last week, but sadly I have yet to use one of my pretty bookmarks. Instead I have used a delivery confirmation receipt and a birthday card. The birthday card is actually a pretty darn good bookmark as it smells like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg!
Around the Web:
Well, this week was kind of slow, although there seemed to be a lot of hops going on and I always like to click through them and check out new blogs. But, I think the most exciting thing to happen was the article posted in the Wall Street Journal that pretty much took shots at YA literature. It really caused quite a stir and if you are on twitter, you may have noticed the #yasaves in a lot of tweets. It is quite a controversial article and I plan to post my thoughts on it this week.
This week was a crazy fun week. It was the first full week of summer break for my kiddos and my 6 year-old was up at the crack of dawn ready to get in the pool and ready to drive me crazy ever single day! She has been in the pool everyday but one since school let out! My 11 year-old had football three days this week and he was not happy to learn that it began at 9 a.m. He is so much like me it is crazy! Neither one of us is a pleasant, early morning person. Although, I think that if he had to practice any later in this Oklahoma heat he would gladly do 9 a.m.! My daughter (6) began her summer schedule for gymnastics which wasn’t bad, except for Friday, when we had to be there by 8 a.m.! Have I ever mentioned that I am not a morning person? UGH! Thursday was my birthday (be sure you enter my birthday month giveaway) and I hit the top of the hill! It was a fun celebration as my kids were super excited to plan a celebration for me. I am looking forward to this weekend as my first-born turns 14. I am still not quite sure what to do for him, so if you have any ideas, please share! He’s a good kid and doesn’t even want much for his birthday, just an i-pod and an x-box. He got a kicking guitar last year, so it may be hard to top it…
So, if you have any ideas of what might be a SUPER cool gift idea for a 14 year-old boy that likes rock music and jamming on his guitar let me know!! Maybe if I go with your idea I will send you one of my really pretty bookmarks (that I unfortunately fail to use)!!
I hope that you have a great week and I look forward to seeing you back here next week…
