FRIDAY STARS – Your Weekly Must Knows 01/06/17

Friday Stars.13
Life:

Yesterday was my oldest son’s birthday, and he turned 6.  He wanted to go bowling, so we headed off to our local bowling alley with the 4 of us, my mom, dad, Grandma and my best friend and her 21 month old son.  Watching him throw the ball, I have no clue how he did as well as he did lol.  It was a spectacle and so hysterical.  But the best part was that it didn’t matter if him or his brother knocked down 1 pin or 6 pins, each time they bowled they would jump around while clapping.  It was so adorable!  We then finished off the evening by coming back to our house and having pizza, cake (he wanted chocolate cake, chocolate filling and chocolate frosting – oh my gosh the cake was so rich but yummy!) and presents.  I’m so sad he’s growing up so fast *cries*, but I’m so happy for the cheerful, friendly, lovable little man he is growing into.  Here’s hoping you all had a fabulous week too.

In case you aren’t familiar with our Friday Star Posts, we like to take a look at what’s happened around here in the last week, what’s coming up that we are excited about and anything else that we may have to share!

♥ Enjoy!

*Currently re-reading and this time around I’m connecting with the characters and loving.  I’ll be re-writing my review*
Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Parislibrary, where Arik and his Sentinels-magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books-rescue them from a demonic hound.
Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik’s world and her own, before both are destroyed.

  1. Aww! I can just picture how adorable they were!

  2. Wow, six years old!! How sweet! One of my favorite parts of working in a library is seeing all the kids coming to storytime with their moms and dads and siblings and grandparents…they’re so sweet at this age. So glad you’re treasuring them! 😀 And I can’t wait to read your re-review of Thief of Lies. It looks like a pretty cool book!

    • It’s such a fun age, BUT they’re growing up so fast. Time seems to just being going by faster and faster.
      OH, thank you for the reminder about storytime! We got out of that routine when we moved my Grandparents over here last November, so I just went and added this weeks storytime to my calendar, yay. Thanks Christy!

  3. Yay, I’m so glad to hear that and I hope you have a great time!! Maybe you’ll find some good books for yourself, too 😀

  4. Bowling is so much fun with little kids. I’m glad your son had a great birthday celebration!!
