Bookish and Not So Bookish Thoughts

Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things&encountered during the week. **************************************************************************************

1) While on Spring Break, Ethan and I were browsing the Barnes and Noble when I stumbled upon the journal section. Now, I am a sucker for journal books...but the problem is that I never write in them because I HATE my handwriting. Crazy huh? I want all the books...but just for looking at...until now!!!

I love the idea of a 5 year journal and it has questions (writing prompts!) which will be so fun to fill out and re-visit as the years pass. 

As I continued to browse, I then discovered yet another gem: 
The kids version!!! Ethan even said he wanted it and so far he has completed it every this one will definitely be a keeper. One of the questions he answered was "What is the best part about your birthday?" and of course the 8yo answers "presents!"....classic!!


2) I've been reading The Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes for about a week now and while I've been trying really hard to get through it quickly, it is an e-book and was due at the library on Tuesday. I can't renew it so I may have turned off the Wifi on my iPad so I can get thru the last 100 pages or so. Hope to finish it today!

3) I know I've rambled on and boo-hooed about not being able to do the Dumbo Double Dare in Disneyland in September, but I am still NOT OK with not being able to go. There!

4) Looking forward to having a 3 day weekend. Happy Easter!

5) Really looking forward to sinking my teeth into some sugar free Juicy Fruit gum on Sunday! Ha!

6) Oscar has always been one to preach the "end of world" coming "end of world prepper"...he has just about everything one would need should things get crazy...and all these years I've let his comments about it go in one ear and out the other....but I've finally the moment where this just may be something that we see in our lifetime...and now it's even close to home...there have been threats made at 3 local schools in the immediate well as our church (which is attached to our school). Ugh!

7) In better news, I may have purchased two boxes of these yesterday at Target...the shelves were getting bare and I certainly didn't want to miss out.

I am a BIG fan of guided journals...I always want to buy more of them, but I never write in them because I donʻt want to mess them up, haha. I love the 5-year journal ones especially. I canʻt wait til my kid is old enough to talk...Iʻll definitely be stocking up on a few for her!

I would definitely be bummed about not being able to do the Dumbo Double Dare, either! We were supposed to go to Disney World in September, but I donʻt think we are. Iʻm hoping we can get in a trip to Disneyland, though!

Isnʻt it scary what the world is coming to? You never think itʻs that bad until itʻs hit close to home. There have been similar shooting/bomb threats at some of the schools here, too. I can never tell if itʻs serious or just kids wanting to copy cat, but nonetheless with that itʻs so important to take it seriously!

I'm the same, I buy journals and notebooks, fill out the first few pages and then... nothing!

I had one of the question a day ones and was really good about doing for over two and a half years. And then my son was born and it literally became a door stop. I loved seeing my answers, though, and maybe will restart one someday. It would also be fun to do a revised version with my kids at school so they could see how they change, as well, now that I think of it!
