Sunday Wrap-up: December 18, 2016 & The Big Reveal!

Whew it has been a busy few weeks. We are mostly moved into our new apartment now, which is great. There is still a lot of unpacking to do, but I am slowly making progress. Unfortunately our internet still isn't hooked up yet, so I haven't been able to do any updates here on my blog. I'm currently visiting my parents so I thought I'd get a quick post together, while I check my emails.

I can't believe Christmas is just days away! Are you all ready? I haven't even started my Christmas shopping, to be honest and I couldn't tell ya where any of my decorations are. Just another thing I'm trying not to stress over, haha.

I've been feeling pretty good lately which is a blessing. Everything is going along well with my pregnancy and I am now just over 5 months along. I have to say that I'm loving my baby bump and I can feel the baby moving around more and more every day. What an amazing feeling!

The big news is that we were able to find out the gender of the baby!

It's a boy!! 

We are so excited and can't wait until April.

I finally finished The Girl in the Castle. Man it took me forever. Even though it is over 500 pages in length, it isn't an overly thick book. The story was interesting though and I decided on a 3.5 rating. I hope to get my review up soon. 

This completes my 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge with 50 books read for the year. Even though I have slacked the last several months, I am still pretty proud of this accomplishment. Let's see how many more I can complete before the year is up. 

Next up on my TBR is:

    1. Thank you. I definitely had to look up the translation for that word lol.

  2. Yay! A boy! It seems like everyone we know is having girls. Now that you know, you can really start planning. It's a beautiful time for a family. Savor the moments.
    I look forward to seeing what you think of The Girl in the Castle. It's been calling to me, but when it comes to a whopper like that I usually wait to read some blog reviews. Yours will be the first.

    1. Thank you for your kind words Toady. We are so excited.
      My review for The Girl in the Castle will be up this week, I think.
