Fall Fun and Reading Plans

Fall is officially here and all of the fun that goes along with it.  It has been a great weekend so far albeit quite busy as usual!  We spent the better part of yesterday at a fundraiser softball tournament for two different families that we are friends with in memory of a very special little boy.  It turned a bit rainy at the end but it was great to spend the day with friends in support of a very good cause.  Today is football Sunday as usual which means for me lots of laundry, some blogging, and most definitely a bit of cleaning.  Before I get started on my kitchen floor though, I thought I should get my butt in gear and post about a few upcoming blogging events that I'm planning on participating in.

First up is the FrightFall Read-a-Thon that officially starts up tomorrow (and for me unofficially begins later today hopefully).  I already shared with you my recent ENORMOUS book haul which gives me a perfect excuse to sign up for this and get some books read!  I'm still reading the same books that I was last week so these two are my reading goals for this challenge.  And as they could be considered spooky reads they will fit in perfectly with this challenge.  I'm planning on reading both of these:

Any other books that I can read will certainly be great but I really, really want to finish both of these up!  I'm also signing up for my 1st ever Pin It and Do It Challenge!

I've always wanted to try and participate in one of these challenges hosted by the lovely Trish but haven't yet!  I'm starting small and signing up for the Timid Pinner level but I have high hopes for getting lots of pins accomplished.  The cooler weather always makes me want to bake (I should say attempt to bake) so I'm hoping to try a few pins that involve baking.  This is going to be lots of fun!

Whew!  I'm going to be one busy girl in the upcoming weeks.  I'm off to get some of my laundry done but I hope that you all have a wonderful week filled with lots of good books.

Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!


  1. So glad you're joining the challenge Sam! Just have fun with it--no pressure. ;) And good luck with the laundry. I have three loads on my bed right now that need folding. Already counting down the years to when the girls can do their own!!

  2. Enjoy your new challenge, Sam! I am not on Pinterest, but it seems like a wonderful site.

  3. Enjoy your challenges Sam! I should participate in few read-a-thons this year to get through all my books.

  4. Happy reading! Enjoy those challenges.

  5. Sounds like a full, fun October for you. I'm joining Pin It and Do It this time around.

  6. Trish- I hate the folding/putting away part of laundry! I've tried to get my oldest to help with it but he doesn't seem to really care what his clothes look like or how they are! I'm going to try again in a couple more years :)

    Suko- It really is a great website especially when you want to try something new. I'm using it to help me expand my cooking skills but you could really use it for whatever you want!!

    Darlene- I could participate in a read-a-thon every weekend and not catch up! Seriously, I'm so far behind that it is ridiculous but oh well. I love having books waiting for me so there is that.....haha!

    Naida- Thanks and I will :)

    Diane- It has been a VERY busy October so far! Good luck with the Pin It, Do It challenge. This is my first time participating as well!!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
