{Mirror Mirror} Liza’s Birthday and Massive Book Haul

Posted September 2, 2017 by Liza in Stacking the Shelves / 28 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!  Well, let’s start with the most important stuff!  My birthday was on Monday 🙂  I had to work on Monday, but I got home to my gifts (more about that below) and hubby made dinner for us, it was great.

Other than that there’s a new software update in 10 days and we’ve been very busy.  Cross your fingers for me so everything goes okay 🙂

Shopping for school is done, including supplies, clothes, and shoes.  Classes start on Wednesday, Brian is a senior and Chris is going to 7th grade this year.  *Sigh*  I have no babies anymore 🙁

I told you a couple of weeks ago that I started a planner since the bullet journal didn’t quite worked for me, and here it is: Erin Condren Hardbound Planner .  It’s a big and hardbound planner and I like it fine, but it’s heavier that what I would like.  I will keep using it and see how it goes.  I’m not going crazy with the decorations because I really don’t have the time and money to invest in it.  I did find a lot of free planner printables that I can use too, but again, not a lot of time for it…

  1. Happy Belated Birthday 🙂

    You have a wonderful selection of books, I’m going to look into the historical romance, the covers are wonderful. I hope you enjoy all your new reads.

  2. Happy birthday! Good luck with your software roll out. Now that school is here, I’m not keeping up with my bullet journal, either. I bought a Happy Planner for my school planning with my partner, but I think I am going to use it for both school and personal and do my bullet journal just for fun.

  3. Happy belated birthday! It’s so hard seeing our babies grow up. Mine is now in graduate school 8 hours away, but my birthday present to myself is a trip to see her for the weekend. So, I am counting down. I am so excited for more KWest this year. I see a bunch of people have the book, so I am eagerly awaiting early reviews. Good luck with your rollout!

    I wish you a happy birthday. I hope you enjoy all your new books. I got Coiled by H. L. Burke and have already started it. I also got three of my school books for my essay research, including The Lais of Marie de France.

      Thanks Nathan. When I was in school I used to love to read all my assigned reading before school started (Yes, I’ve always been a nerd!)

  5. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!! I hope you had a great day with your boys. I see they are all off to school! Where is Boy A? Hopefully they are excited and you are excited for them to be occupied. 😀 SUCH a great book haul! I see you stocked up on the Harper books! I only downloaded the new Kasie West one, and Honor Among Thieves. I miiiiiiiight get The Queen’s Rising later on. I love the detailing on the cover.

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books! Have a wonderful weekend, Liza. =)
