May Wrap-Up!

Well, that’s a wrap on Birthday month!! Haha! It went by so fast, but I was insanely busy. The fact that Mother’s Day, my son’s birthday, and my birthday are all within two weeks of each other doesn’t help.

I want to take a second to shout out to Dini and Julie for the lovely birthday gifts! They sent me books for my birthday, and it was awesome!! So lucky to have these amazing ladies in my life. I also want to shout out to Hamad for sending Oliver birthday books. It was the sweetest thing and Oliver has been obsessed with them, especially the Sonic one! <3<3

I read a total of 15 books this month. It was a good month for me. There were so many more books I had planned on getting to but didn’t quite get there. I did manage to stay on top of the arcs that were due and there was a decent amount.

I have completed 34 books for my PopSugar Challenge

I completed 34 books for my Beat the Backlist Challenge.

I also want to talk about a new monthly post I’ve created. It’s all about highlighting the Birthstone of the month with lovely book covers. Check it out here if you want to see more about it. Definitely join in next month if you think it looks fun! ❀ I’ve seen a couple people participate and it’s been so awesome to see! Thanks, guys! I’m honored you have jumped in! ❀

Here are some of the bloggers that have participated: ❀

Okay- So…I did get a record player for Mother’s Day!! My hubs did a little tricky thing. I was hoping for my birthday and he did it for Mother’s Day instead. I had no idea what he was going to do for my bday this way! haha. I’m leaving Harry here because I’ve ben obsessed with his records and just playing them over and over. My kid has been having a blast too!


We had a lot of celebrations but the big one was Ollie turning 3!! He had a blast, even if, several people cancelled the day before. Hey guys- life tip- PLEASE, PLEASE R.S.V.P to things!! It’s not that hard and it helps out SO much. We ended up with a cake for 40 people and only had about 16 show up!!! The biggest moment of his party though was when Spiderman came (totally hubs)!! It’s been weeks later and all he talks about is Spiderman came to my party!”


I hope that everyone had a great May and I hope you have an amazing June!! ❀

  1. It sounds like you guys had an awesome month! I’m so sorry more people didn’t show up for your little one’s birthday though. That must have felt awful. I hope he didn’t really notice and was way more interested in Spiderman!

    Also congrats on finishing so many books this past month! Let’s hope June treats us all kindly!

  3. What a great month!
    I hate birthday parties for kids. Meaning throwing one for mine. Haha. People are really horrible about RSVP’ing. I usually contact people who didn’t just to get a count. It is easier when they are older and you just invite a few of their friends.

  4. Yay! I’m glad you and Oliver had a great birthday month! June is one of our busy months with my son’s birthday, our anniversary, and father’s day all within a week! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ˜ƒ I’m so happy you got your record player! And it’s so frustrating when people don’t RSVP. It’s such a simple thing. I LOVE your tiny books. They make me smile every time. πŸ₯° Happy reading in June!
