{Mirror Mirror} Liza’s Updates and BEA Haul

Posted June 10, 2017 by Liza in Stacking the Shelves / 11 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 readers!  Looking back at my last Mirror post, it’s been almost a month! Can you tell I’m a busy bee?  Summer is usually a busy time for me since I have a lot of professional (work) events plus my family usually comes to visit.  I was away last week at BEA (event review next week) and then I had a conference from Sunday until Wednesday and then back to work.

Anyway, my kids last day of school was  on Thursday, but we also had two events with the kids before that. I missed Chris’s summer concert since I was in BEA, but hubby recorded for me and here he is:

Also, Brian was inducted to the Thespian society and he also received an award for the best actor this season.  My handsome actor:

Next in my busy life: I have another conference in a couple of weeks in DC and I stay there which is nice.  Then in early July, hubby and I will celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, Chris is turning 12 and my mom is coming for a visit.  I see cake, shopping and cleaning in my future 🙂

      I’m so happy too! Just the after-school activities can get exhausting. BEA was on Memorial Day week and it was good. Losts of fantasy this time, I tried to control myself and didn’t take that many books.
