Best Audiobooks of 2019, Part 1

This post contains affiliate links. See my disclosure policy for more details. Living in the DC area, it’s nearly always a certainty that you’ll have a long commute. Since I typically spend about 2 hours in the car each day, the radio gets old pretty fast. As a lifelong lover of books, I delved into audiobooks with an audible subscription on Prime Day last summer and have loved every second of it. I really miss reading but don’t typically have a lot of time to sit down and read a book, but those hours in the car are PERFECT for…

Recent Reads {March 2015}

Recent Reads {March 2015}

I was thinking about it over the weekend, and I realized it’s been a while since I shared what I’ve been reading. I often find my lists of what to read from friends, but I love knowing what other bloggers are reading. I’ve set a goal for 2015 to read 32 books, since I’ll be turning 32 this year (in October). Here’s what I’ve read so far this year. Where She Went by Gayle Forman From Amazon: It’s been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever. Now living…

Secret Santa Book Exchange

Secret Santa Book Exchange

Way back in October (okay, maybe it wasn’t that long ago), my friend Jenny announced a Secret Santa book exchange, so of course I signed Abbie and I up. A girl could always use more books, right?  I was pretty excited when our package arrived last week. Abbie just saw another thing to open, but she IS a big fan of opening things. Johannah from The Sirois Family was our secret Santa! She sent Madeline’s Christmas for Abbie – I can tell this is going to be a favorite for years to come – such a classic! For me, she sent…

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

This is a sponsored blog post. I received compensation from Gymboree. The opinions and text are all mine.   When I was pregnant with Abbie, I was obsessed with getting her books.  Lots of books.  Some of my fondest memories as a kid are of reading – I was an only child for 9 years, and I spent a lot of time with my nose buried in a book.  It hasn’t changed, and I still love books – and I always wanted to be sure Abbie loved them too. One of my favorite books for kids is The Very Hungry Caterpillar…

Recent Reads {Summer 2014}

Recent Reads {Summer 2014}

I’ve been really into reading lately, and had a few books I can’t seem to put down. Our library system has a great selection of ebooks, and I’ve been reserving them on a regular basis so I always have some reading material. Unfortunately, my system has now backfired on me and I have 6 books to read in the next 3 weeks! I always love seeing what other people read and enjoyed, so I thought I’d share my recent reads with you! The One and Only by Emily Giffin – Goodreads description here I love Emily Giffin as a writer and…

Favorite Toddler Books

Favorite Toddler Books

One of my favorite things that Abbie started doing recently is handing me a book, then climbing into my lap.  It’s the sweetest thing and IMPOSSIBLE to resist – especially as someone that’s always loved to read.  She loves all her books, but there are definitely some she grabs more than others – here are her current favorites! (disclosure – these are affiliate links, but I wouldn’t recommend these if they weren’t honestly her favorites!) Charley Harper 123s: Skinny Edition – We got this in one of Abbie’s Citrus Lane boxes a while back and she adores it.  It’s a cute…

31 Books

31 Books

When I was younger, I LOVED books.  I devoured them every chance I got, and my idea of a perfect day was going to the library, checking out a slew of them, and snuggling in my bed, reading.  Then high school and college happened, and things just got too busy.  I still read, but nowhere near as much.  I graduated.  I started working.  Books weren’t really on my priority list, and I missed them.  I think from high school through when I got pregnant, I read maybe five books a year just for fun – a far cry my younger…
