Sunday Cup of...

Welcome to Sunday Cup of... grab your favorite beverage and visit with me for a bit.
Sunday Cup of... is a combination post featuring, 
The Sunday Post Hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?  Hosted by Book Date
and the Book Blog Hop hosted by Ramblings of a coffee addicted writer.
I share my week, what's going on around the blog, and what books I'm reading or have finished.

I am officially done Christmas Shopping!!! 

I also have posted ahead for the rest of November, ok this really isn't a great accomplishment because I took some of my recipe posts that hadn't gotten alot of views and re-posted them.  Yet this does take the pressure off having to come up with posts during the up coming holidays. I'm hoping to have December filled soon as well. I'm considering reinstating Motivation Monday, more for me. Finding the pics to post is kind of motivating and fun for me.

Book Blogger Hop
I will also be joining the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Ramblings of a coffee addicted writer. Every week they will pop a question that you answer. Post your answer to your blog, and enter your post to the linky provided. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.

This weeks question:

  Are the giveaways on your blog publisher-sponsored giveaways or giveaways of your own books? (submitted by Elizabeth)

Most of the giveaways I post go along with book tours I'm hosting, which are sponsored by the author or publisher. But the blog hop giveaways are usually my own books or books I've received to review. The blog hops are also usually sponsored by the Etsy store I co-own with my Mom, Mabel and Nanny's Designs.

So that's it for this week, hope you'll stop by next Sunday. Have a great week!


  1. Ooh! Glad you got your Christmas shopping out the way! I need to do some shopping too!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays!

  2. I can't believe you are already done with Christmas shopping! I gotta say that is a huge accomplishment lol.

    I love watching My Cat From Hell; I learned a lot from Jackson Galaxy :) Have a wonderful week and thanks for visiting my blog.~Aleen

    1. Thanks! I have too, we have four cats and the show has been a real eye opener.

  3. I am green with envy that you are done Christmas shopping. There has never been a year until now where I haven't been done before Thanksgiving. I babysit my granddaughter five days a week now, and it has been a game changer. I wouldn't trade it for the world though.

    1. I'm sure your having time with your granddaughter is much more fulfilling than Christmas shopping. :)

  4. I did some online shopping so I did get a head start. Awesome that you're all done. I also did a bunch of posts ahead. It sure takes a lot of time to put together some of the posts. Sounds like a delightful yet busy time with your granddaughter. Don't they grow up so fast:)

    My Sunday Post

    1. Yes it does, it's amazing how much time posts take to create.

  5. I like how you managed to get ahead of the hectic holiday season....and as for reposting from your blog, I like that idea. I've done it a couple of times, and it has worked out great.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Thank you! That's good to know, I was a little hesitant.

  6. WOW..I am so jealous...I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet!! Good for you!

  7. I don't really have much Christmas shopping to do. I am a horrible shopper!

    1. I usually am too, but I think I did ok this year.

  8. Congrats on being done with Christmas shopping! Must be nice to have that done so early in advance. And being ahead on posts is neat. I didn't realize you had done recipe posts! Will have to check some of them out. Have a great week!

    1. Thank you! I've got a few healthy recipes, and hopefully going to try to come up with some more. :)

  9. Are you serious? About the Christmas shopping I mean ha ha. I think I'm jealous, I won't even START for a few weeks! But hey, good job! :)

    Looks like a good reading week, I need to pick up my game a bit as I didn't read very much this past week. Maybe this new week will be better? Hope you have a good one!
