Weekly Rewind ~ 2.28.16

Posted February 28, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Weekly Rewind / 55 Comments

Weekly Rewind is a weekly feature where I will recap posts, books read, books bought and borrowed and whatever else from the past week. I’ve linked to The Sunday Post hosted by  Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by  Team Tynga’s Reviews.
Not much going on this week. I flew through and LOVED Pivot Point I am slowly getting through Half Bad. I got my hair did. Love getting my hair cut. It always looks so pretty then I struggle to make it look like that until I go back lol. My daughters 4th birthday is coming up so I have been doing stuff for her party – her first real party with friends. I also bought her some presents. I kind of can’t wait until it is over because it is giving me anxiety ugh.  Hope you all have an amazing week!

  1. Good luck with the party LOL yeah that can be stressful. 🙂 I think I Like You Just Fine When You’re Not Around looks funny, and I like that title. Have an awesome week. 🙂

  2. I haven’t heard of Pivot Point Grace, so much check that out!

    I’m with you on the haircut. It looks great after leaving the salon but I can NEVER get it to look like that!


  3. I am curious about Kasie West’s books…must check them out.

    I have those same feelings after my salon experiences…my daughter is my stylist, and I asked her if she could stop by regularly to do my hair and she just grimaced. LOL.

    But with slightly longer hair, I am having a better time of it. When she cut it short, I could never recreate it.

    Enjoy your books and your new week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. You got some interesting books this week. I Like You Better When You Are Not Around sounds like something good. I finally read Red Rising this week and it was amazing. if you haven’t read it you should, seriously. I love you Instagram pictures this week. You are so good at that.

  5. Yay! I’m getting my hair cut tomorrow! I cannot wait. It’s long overdue. LOL. I hate getting my hair cut because I’m so picky about how it looks so I usually put it off way longer than I should.

    Aw getting ready for your daughter’s party sounds fun! But at the same time I can see you ready to get it over with- parties are always overload.

    You have me so excited for Pivot Point! Ah! Have a great week girl!

  6. Isn’t it fun and relaxing to get someone to cut and style our hair? I’m trying to grow out a super short layered cut that I liked but everyone else gave a thumbs-down to, and they have to look at me more than I do, so okay, lol!

    Enjoy the memories of the first actual children party your daughter is having! Some advice: the children will all converge on her when she is opening her gifts. They will try to rip the paper, block the camera angle, say what it is and ruin the surprise, but you know what?– they’re little kids so it’s all fine.
    I learned to put my bday child on a chair and hand them the gifts one by one, have the little ones sit on the floor to watch and handed the visitors the box after it was unwrapped to see it closer.

  7. I think I’m the only girl in the world who hates getting her hair done LOL. It’s not the actually hair cutting/coloring part that I hate, it’s making small talk, I kind of suck at it so I try to avoid it at all costs. My daughter’s 3rd birthday is in April so I’m in the birthday planning stage too! 😀

    • Oh I get you on the small talk. I thankfully know my stylist so it is much less awkward! Oh good luck with your planning!! 3 was such a hard age for us I am hoping 4 is a better year. Also hope your 3’s go better than ours did 🙂

  8. Oooh, kid’s parties ugh, lol. We did a couple of them but yeah, they are pretty stressful! Now instead of doing a traditional party my kid’s get to chose a special friend for their birthday and then they get to go on an outing of their choice (within reason). We’ve done put-put golfing, go carts, Build a Bear etc. 🙂
