Sunday Post #13: An early Christmas Gift

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

Welcome back to the Sunday Post! Sit back, kick up your feet, and relax!


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Gosh, I almost forgot to write this post. I’m hastily typing away on a very windy Saturday night. After a cold week, today it was in the mid 70s. Actually, it feels pretty yuck right now. But, as if the weather wasn’t crazy already, tonight it’s going to get down to 28 degrees! Good grief!

My mom is finally here with me and I’ve been enjoying her company. Also, it gives me the excuse to make baked goods. I made a coffee cake this week and next week I’ll be making my favorite cookie recipe: Red velvet peanut butter kiss blossoms. YUM! I’ll try and post a picture of them, before we eat them all. LOL

Visit From The Mailbox Fairy

I’m so excited to read all of these! I won a Promise of Fire in Cyn’s giveaway on her blog Book Munchies!

Okay, so my brother mailed my Christmas gift early and since it wasn’t wrapped…

Confession: I love video games. Especially RPG’s like Final Fantasy. So imagine my surprise when I received this art book:


Terra from Final Fantasy VI


No new ARCs this week… *whew*

I have gotten presents unwrapped before, but they are usually wrapped. That’s an awesome gift if you love the video game so much! How cool!!!

It’s pretty chilly here. I’m not sure what what the forecast is for Christmas day, but I imagine cold, if not actually snowing.

Great to hear that you’re enjoying your visit with your mom. And that your brother sent you the perfect gift. 🙂 I *wish* I had some of the arctic blast! It was 80 degrees yesterday so it doesn’t exactly feel festive. Hope you have a great week, Aleen!

Yes at least show us the cookies before they’re gone, lol. From 70’s to 28- wow. I’d take 70’s since it’s been like in the 20’s (or less) all week.

The Art of Final Fantasy – how cool.

Yikes, your weather is going from 70s to 28 in one day?! That is kinda crazy lol. But you should definitely take some photos of your baked goodies before you eat them! The next best thing to eating good food is looking at it lol. And yay, I managed to not get any new ARCs either! We should be so proud of ourselves 😛
