Monthly Re-Cap: May 2018

Hello Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people! 

Happy almost Summer!
It is going to be JUNE already and I am freaking out a bit, months are flying by! In May there were a lot of Spring chores - we finally got our veggies in the garden and we starting additions to the deck we put up - we added little built-in bars to eat at. 
We helped clean out a storage unit with my family for Mother's Day (gift to the Meme) and I got a bunch of great stuff including more fake X-mas trees (YEASSSSS) and a sombrero (because why not?...), we also got the top part of a buffet we have had from my parents house so now we have the shelf that goes on the table (so adulty). 

I did SO MUCH reading this month. I had a spurt where I needed to read 4 books in a little over a week and thankfully got them all done (1,328 pages!). Then I read so many other things! Work is starting to get slower so I have had a bit more time during the day to pick up books, I love that.

What else - oh Family dinner holds true, our friend Jason hosted this month and I am still LOVING doing this. If you are new - we have a 'family' dinner every month with our friend group, ensuring we all get together at least once a month. There is a shared spreadsheet and everything! (Nerdy people Unite!)

June brings vacation days and the 4-day work week back at the end of the month. I am excited!

How did I do on my May TBR?
Just a note - my TBR was so not complete when it went up. I added 3 more books to it 😳😳 so here is the final count .... 7/7 and I managed to add another one that has been on my TBR pile for a bit as well and some shorter easier reads!!! 🤓
