The Sunday Post is a weekly wrap-up post hosted by Kimba at CaffeinatedBookReviewer.com. This is the post where we discuss books we’ve acquired throughout the week, news, and interesting links to other blogs.
In real news, my husband and I are buying a home! I wish I could say house, but in actuality, it’s a condo, because DC Metro is freakin’ expensive, man. But we close on 9/15 and I am SO EXCITED SHOUTY CAPITALS! We had not planned to buy anything for awhile and the decision to buy came with a lease renewal notice from our apartment complex, informing us that our rent was going to be increased by nearly $300/month. !!! So at that point, we had to make some decisions.
In other news, my husband and I visited Iowa for our first wedding anniversary. I know what you’re thinking….IOWA?! My best friend lives there and we were due for a visit, plus we wanted to go visit the Iowa State Fair in all its food glory. Bacon-wrapped brisket on a stick anyone? Of course we ate our faces off!
While in Iowa, BFF & I finally got our matching tattoos. I think you’ll dig it:
In blog news, I am going to redesign the header – yes, again. I have a wonderful idea in my brain that needs to happen. It will be the best one we’ve ever had (which, I don’t think that bar is very high actually – except for the one Parajunkee did for me back in 2011 which was spectacular – but I’m excited nonetheless). I’ve been testing my design chops again (I went to college for fine arts and graphic design), and it’s making me so happy. I’ve opened an Etsy store because I’d like to design things like wedding invitations, save-the-dates, RSVP cards, etc. And perhaps design some custom blog headers to sell as well. And I’ve been getting back into photography, in a big way. I will share all these things once they are ready.
And lastly, for our anniversary, my husband gave me a Kindle Voyage! My paperwhite has a couple of small cracks in the screen, and it was so distracting. It was after receiving the Voyage that I decided to attempt to move all my B&N books I purchased over the years (because I had a Nook) over to my Kindle. And while I’m not really sure if I can discuss how I did it, just know it took some googling, $30 for an app purchase and Calibre. I now have every single book I ever bought for B&N on my Kindle. Exciting stuff!
Now I just need to spend time making collections so I can organize all 700+ ebooks a little better…
