Stacking The Shelves #124 & Sunday Post #88

I am combining two great blog hops:  Stacking The Shelves (a Saturday feature by Team Tynga's Reviews), and Sunday Post (a Sunday feature by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer).  Both of these features give people a chance to post about what books they received and also an opportunity to catch a glimpse of what others are excited about.  I really enjoy seeing everyone's version of these features!   All book covers are linked to Goodreads, if you want to check them out.  If you enjoy my blog, please consider following me via Bloglovin, Networked Blogs, GFC, or by email subscription.  If you leave a comment and tell me you are a new follower, I will follow you back! 

On The Blog:
In "Real Life":
It's been an eventful week for me!  I got positive news on a health issue which was a huge relief.  Even though it's been six years since I had cancer, there will always be some fear that it will return.  The one thing I learned this week is that this fear is something shared by many cancer survivors.  I am NOT the only one.  Not worrying can be a challenge for me, and it's something I need to work on.

We spent all Wednesday afternoon shoe shopping for Prom!  We had to go to four different stores before we found anything decent.  But I think we found the best shoes for my teen's outfit.  And they are shoes she can wear again (ever practical, me).
I also learned that life is full of surprises!  My AMAZING brothers-in-laws got us tickets to Taylor Swift!!!  We were given these tickets on Wednesday, with the concert being on Friday.  Such a wonderful surprise!  I will post pictures in a post next week.

  6. I'm not the biggest Swift fan but I have heard that her show this time around is AMAZING so I'm sure you'll have a blast. Great news on your health and man, I don't know how you could not worry. I'm a worry wart at best so it would be SUPER hard for me!

  7. Oh I bet the Taylor Swift concert will be fantastic. Enjoy!
