Quick Lit: March 2016

I don't often enjoy a reading lunch, but when I do it's
because of a very very addicting book series!! :)

My 2016 Goodreads goal is 36 books -- 3 books a month -- after not quite making that goal last year.

(This doesn't count the books I read to/with my kids -- I try to post a few times a month what my kids are reading too, click here to read those reviews)

I'm already at 16 books completed -- 6 just in this month -- and one of those was 800+ pages!! (though one was also less than 200 pages) We'll see if this accelerated pace continues...

Korea: Part One

After reading books about the Arctic in January and February, we've moved on to Korea in the Reading Together Family Exploration Book Club.

This is a culture I'm not familiar with at all, other than knowing where on a map to find it, and knowing a few people who were adopted from there.

The Lion's Tales: March edition

I've been quiet around the blog-o-sphere the last few weeks, and it just means our family has been doing lots of things and I've still been doing lots of reading! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you've seen that those have been updated a lot more frequently. :)

Here are some of the highlights of the last few weeks. Look for a March reading recap next week!

My First Trunk Club Experience

We interrupt your regular scheduled book-ish posts for something different! :)

Let me start off by saying I am NOT a fashionista. Up until the last month or two, my daily wardrobe when I wasn't working or going to church has been jeans and an old t-shirt. Work or church would up my t-shirt to something a little bit nicer and occasionally khakis instead of jeans.

With kids at home, I don't have the time or desire to go shopping for myself. And the few times that I do, it's only down the street to the local Goodwill to see if they have a pair of jeans in my size.

Sugar Fast 2016 Update

I was looking at the calendar last night and realized I'm over halfway done with my sugar fast -- 3.5 weeks in, 3 weeks to go!

Overall it's going better than I expected. There are definitely some moments where it's SO hard to say no to something sweet -- donuts at church on Sunday, sneaking a bite of the girls' morning cereal, every night scooping ice cream for Rocky.

I didn't even allow myself to share in the snow ice cream
I made for my family on last Tuesday's snow day!
