The Sunday Post # – Weekly Wrap-up

We were off this week for our spring-break / Easter holiday, and the hubby, plus three of the kids, and Freddy spent a few days in Spain to have a change of scenery. Freddy really enjoyed traveling by car, which is definitely a plus! And he loved playing in the sand at the beach, too, it was so much fun to see him go crazy chasing his ball, and digging a hole. Now, we’re back home, to spring in full majesty, and more or less ready to attack school and work again. There is no more vacation for the kids until the summer, which only starts the first week of July. I’m the lucky one, having a week off for BEA in May πŸ˜‰

  1. OMG I can’t get over how cute he is! I am glad you had a great break, my son was off this week and daughter next but I am sad I wasn’t able to take off with them.
    I can’t wait or BEA!

    I hope you have a great week, Lexxie! Happy Reading! ox

  2. Hey that’s a plus if he doesn’t mind car travel. πŸ™‚ Glad you got a little time away… Spain sounds sunny right about now. Have a great week… πŸ˜‰

  3. Did you say spring-break? holiday? SPAIN???? sand at the beach??? and going to BEA in May??? All in ONE weekly wrap up??? I AM SOOOO JEALOUS I CAN’T HANDLE IT πŸ™‚
    [I guess happy for you too πŸ™‚ ]

  4. I would not be opposed to you posting puppy pictures every week :), he is so adorable. Glad you had a nice vacation and were able to relax a little. I finished The Year We Turned Forty a week or so ago and really enjoyed it. I look forward to seeing your post on it. Have a great week!

  5. Oh, Freddy is ADORABLE!!! You’re really making me want a puppy with images of him chasing a ball and digging holes in the sand. πŸ˜‰ I’m glad y’all had a nice little trip. I didn’t know you were going! I hope your re-introduction to the reality of school and work goes smoothly. At least you’ll have nice weather, right? The girls ended the winter guard season with a great performance! One more competition to go…
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my dear! **BIG HUGS**

    • LOL that would be something, Brandee… You telling your family you’re getting a puppy because mine is so cute πŸ˜‰ And he was so excited on the beach! The happiest little ball of fur ever πŸ™‚
      I hope the guard competition went well yesterday. *BIG HUGS*

  6. Aw, Freddy is just too cute! I’m glad he enjoyed the ride and playing on the beach. And yay for a nice family getaway. I wish I could get away for a little bit. hah

  7. It sounds as if Freddy has well and truly settled in as a member of the family. The trip to Spain sounds nice and I am envious.

    And I just commented to someone else heading to BEA that you’ll have to have a Sunday Post (etc) book blogging meet-up!

    • He has settled in, which was nice and quite easy. Now, we just need to use the same words when we want him to do (or not do) something πŸ™‚

      I will definitely have a BEA Sundady Post, and I think that for the week that I’m in Chicago, I’ll post about that rather than having reviews.

  8. Freddie is super cute!!!!! So glad you guys enjoyed your spring break! I have been wanting to read the Jana Aston books! Glad to see you liked Right! Do I need to read Wrong first or are they stand alones?
    Can’t wait to hear how BEA goes for you!!!

  9. Ok…Freddy is adorable! I have actually been looking forward to your post this week because I knew you would put up a new Freddy picture (at least I hoped that you would). July sounds like a long time away. Hopefully, your kids can make it until then without any more vacation time. I am glad that you had a nice time off for spring break.

  10. Freddy is adorable!! I’m glad he enjoys car trips, too. My cats DO NOT like the car. At least not for the first half hour or so. They eventually wear themselves out and curl up and go to sleep. I’m so jealous that you’re going to BEA! I didn’t think I would mind missing it this year, but the closer it gets, the twitchier I’m getting over it. I hope you’ll have an amazing time!

    • Yeah, on the way down, he wasn’t exactly happy straight away, but when we drove back home, it was awesome! He went into his little carrier and stayed there πŸ™‚
      I’m sad you’re not going to BEA this year, it would have been so much fun to meet up!

  11. Freddy is so cute. I miss puppies. It is great that you were able to get him at the same time you had a week off. It is great that he is good in the car. I love that Duncan is good in the car. He gets to go on pretty much all of our vacations. My big one in July is a 12+ hour drive, I don’t know what I would do if he wasn’t good in the car. I hope you have a great week.

  12. Spain getaways sound lovely…my eldest son and wife (I’m sure I have mentioned this) love going there.

    Your puppy is adorable, and I’m not really a dog person. Ouch! Did I just admit that out loud? I do love other people’s dogs. How’s that?

    Have a great week…and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  13. Yeah! I am so excited for BEA. Although, I am not counting it as a vaca, since I already have anxiety over the drive and then trying to not miss out on anything will probably mean I will be in a panic about being in the right place, at the right time. I hope I get a chance to meet you there, that would be cool. Freddie is so cute. Glad he handled the car ride well. Have a great week!

    • I’m counting it as vacation since I’ll be off from work πŸ™‚ And I won’t have to correct any tests while I’m away πŸ˜‰
      I hope you’ll be able to relax a bit there, even if there will probably be a little stressful with all the people.
      Thanks for stopping by, Karen! I hope we’ll be able to meet up at BEA, too!

  14. YOUR PUPPY IS SO ADORABLE! I would never get anything done if I lived with him lol. And he sounds so fun and playful. It also sounds like you had a nice break πŸ™‚ A week off can be just the refreshing thing you need to get you through that stretch until the summer!
