Stacking The Shelves #9

AND

Welcome to my Stacking the Shelves and Showcase Sunday post!
Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga over at Tynga’s Reviews
and The Sunday Post is hosted by Kim over at
Kimba The Caffeinated Book Reviewer,
where we showcase the books we got for the week
and recap what happened on the blog this week!
 

Head on over for more details on how to join!

 

So this past weekend, I celebrated my birthday!
After mucho complaining and huffing and puffing, I got:

Yes!  A small camera!  Finally…

My husband constantly buys these crazy huge cameras with the crazy lenses…

All I wanted was a camera that didn’t make us look like tourists!

I’ve also got a new bookcase on the way…so those pics are to come!

On top of getting this awesome camera *grin*, I also ended up getting this

at my birthday party thrown by my totally awesome friends…

Oh yes…that’s my foot!  I broke a bone in my foot, and am in a lovely cast…

It’s all good though…it’s a birthday that I won’t forget   >.<

Alright, alright…birthday festivities aside…on to the books!
