It's Monday and we went to Sesame Place!

This was a gearing-up sort of week, as my husband concluded his sabbatical and was preaching in church again this Sunday. We went to Sesame Place  one day, which was a blast, even if I got thrown up on...(Hot toddler + lots of quick drinking = throwing up on Mom)

Knocking to see if Ernie and Bert are home. Spoiler alert: they're not.

We finally got to see a friend! Because of the heat, the characters were inevitably heading back inside right when we got in line. You try explaining that to a two year old...

They're having fun, I swear. They just didn't want to get out of the splash pool.

Elmo the Musical! is downright mesmerizing.

Reading-wise, I seem to be getting back into some sort of groove and finished Quiet, sped through Saint Mazie, and read Welcome To My Breakdown.

This week, I am looking forward to reading When the Moon is Low for TLC Book Tours and diving into The Watchmaker of Filigree Street. Yes, that cover looks as amazing in real life as it does in the picture. I think it might glow in the dark. Does anyone know?

      When the Moon is Low   The Watchmaker of Filigree Street 

Those are my plans for these first days of August. What are you reading this week?


  1. Sounds like a great vacation! Beautiful cover! I'm starting Lila.

    1. Thanks Heidi! We live pretty close, so we were able to just go for the day and head home when the kiddos crashed!

      I want to read Lila, but I still have to read Home!

  2. YAY Sesame Place. That looks like fun.
    Love the cover for The Watchmaker of Filigree Street. Hope you will enjoy it.

    1. It's just so cool. I already had it on my tbr list, but that is definitely a book I would pick up based on the cover design!

  3. Love Watchmaker's cover! The book was charming but only middle-of-the-road for me, but I think it might have had to do with the poor formatting of my ARC. I hope you have a better experience! :)

    1. I liked it more as I got into it. For a while, I was sort of plodding along and thinking that it would be just an ok read. At some point, I got hooked though!
