January Wrap Up!

Happy New Year, Chickadees!

January is a time for fresh starts and new adventures. We certainly had our share of new beginnings and fun times!

 

Living Life

Ravenously Reading

Elizabeth was a reading MACHINE this month! With a goal of reading 100 books in 2015, she is well on her way with a whopping TEN BOOKS this month!

 

Lindsey, on the other hand, did NOT have such a great reading month. She blames working 6 days a week for the whole month of January for her lack of reading motivation. That, and the new puppy wreacking havoc on her sleep schedule. Here are her five finished books in January.

Loving Links

So many wonderful things appeared on the internets this month! Below are a few of our favorite articles over the course of January.

Dreaming and Doing

Tomorrow, February 1st, marks the beginning of Love Month. Hearts, roses, and kisses, oh my!

Of course there are lots of goals and plans for the month.

 

Now that Lindsey has a break from six day workweeks, she is hoping to FINALLY sit down and bust out her new lifestyle blog, documenting her journey of going green on a budget.

Also on Lindsey’s agenda is READING MORE BOOKS! 5 books in 31 days was just plain pathetic, and with the hope of her puppy soon sleeping through the night on a consistent basis, she may just have the mental energy to pick up a couple more books in February.

Her TBR list includes The Magiciansby Lev Grossman (a Christmas present from Kimmy, of the Maggie Stiefvater event fame), Interrutedby Jen Hatmaker (because Hatmaker is hilarious and she needs more nonfiction to diversify her reading), Shiverby Maggie Stiefvater (a Christmas gift from her in-laws), The Hooker and the Hermitby Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway (a trashy romance novel that she pre ordered that looks hysterical), and hopefully a couple of books on her “To-Read-And-Own” shelf that have been sitting there for FOREVER!
