{Mirror Mirror} Family Trip and Book Haul

Posted July 22, 2017 by Liza in Stacking the Shelves / 12 Comments

Mirror Mirror is our feature that replaces the old Stacking The Shelves/Weekly Recap posts. Bieke decided to make her own original feature because it was more than just a STS or recap post.

Life, News & Happenings

Hi there gorgeous people!  It seems like it’s been forever since I posted a Mirror Mirror.  I don’t have a lot of new books to share, but I have been busy, busy, busy.

So, now I’m done with all the trips – it’s been non-stop since May (Wisconsin, DC, Baltimore, NYC) – both for work and pleasure (BEA 🙂 )  First, let me share pictures of hubby and me in our wedding anniversary… We turned 25!!!!  We stayed at the Gaylor in the National Harbor for some special time together.


Last weekend we went to NYC again to meet a lot of the member’s of my family.  We went to the Museum of Natural History, to have dinner at Becco, and to get macaroons.  Then on Tuesday we  went to the Bronx Botanical Gardens and it was gorgeous, but it was SO hot to stay for long.

My sister, sister-in-law, brother, nice, two cousins, my mom and my cousin’s wife.

  1. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!! You two look so cute together! Here’s to many more years to come!

    I adored What to Say Next! I think it’s time I read The Duchess Deal… I’ve been in a bit of a funk since starting work and I’m sure Dare will bring me out. The cover is gorgeous. 😀 I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a great week, Liza. =)
