Update and Book Haul #50

It's unbelievable on how much time goes by - it has been awhile since I have done a book haul :) 
Things have really slowed down around here on the book blog... we are currently at about 30 weeks preggo and we're really trying to get everything ready for the new baby! Also, kiddos start school a week from Monday - lots to do in the upcoming weeks, new schedules, new baby, lots of real life stuff getting in the way, lol! 
So, things will be slowing down even more around here... I'm hoping for all good things - and that things will pick up after the holidays and new year :) 
Please bear with my sporadic posts and such until then... xo!
