AVR News Update
Hello and Happy Sunday! 

Cutie Kyleigh is coming today and we'll be babysitting, so I need to finish up this post and get some things done. First though, here's a recent pic of our sugarplum, now 5 months old. Growin' like a weed!

So, Anna's Senior portraits were this week and those weren't stressful. At all. *rolls eyes* First there was shopping then last minute shopping and an emergency bang trim before spending 2 hours at the school for said portraits. Glad I took Stargate (my Paperwhite) with me, but I was starving by the time she was done since I hadn't thought to eat that morning. Proofs will be back in 2 weeks. I think they'll be wonderful, she's not so sure. The proof will be in the pudding. 

We continue to watch Supernatural and have started Season 8 which means we have 21 more episodes before we have no more to watch since Netflix does not have Season 9 yet. I've been drafting my August posts and writing up reviews. My August calendar is coming along nicely and I should have it filled out by the end of this week. Assuming, of course, that I quit procrastinating on the review writing. I have 13 to write, down from 18, so that's progress. I also have 7 more books I need for my 99¢ September Challenge. I'm trying to fill out the month with some mystery, thriller, suspense or sci-fi, so if you have any recs please pass them along in the comments.

In other news...huh. There really isn't much other news.

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

  1. She is adorable and growing up so fast! We are also waiting on Season 9 of Supernatural. I wish netflix got them faster. I do hope it comes out soon and not when the next season starts.

    Have a great week and Enjoy your time with that little angel <3

    1. She was just babbling away at us in that so cute baby babble. :)

      Ikr! Come on, Netflix! Still waiting on Season 9 of Bones and Season 8 of Psych, too. *sigh*

      Thanks! And we did. :)

  2. Stargate... like that! Wish I would have thought of it. :) Maybe I should name my reader...

    I like that cover for The Tempest Murders a lot.

    1. I couldn't settle on a name and hubby suggested Stargate. It has stuck so far. lol I named my Fire Portal though and I doubt I'll ever change that. :)

      It is pretty cool. Looking forward to reading it since I'm in NC.

  3. I haven't started Supernatural yet but I'm looking forward to it. I love that you named your Paperwhite. I love mine enough that I should name mine. I got lucky with senior pictures. Emma just wanted the formal yearbook pic and she drove herself to the appointment so I didn't have to participate at all except for actually buying them. It was nice! Have a great week!

    1. Wait at least until Season 9 is out. lol We love the show. It's not perfect. Sometimes the unanswered questions drive us crazy (and believe me, we talk about it a lot lol), but the humor sprinkled throughout is a great balance to the dark stuff.

      I named my Fire Portal. I like having names instead of the standard one it comes with.

      Anna wanted the outfit changes and then when we got there we realized she could have 3 instead of 2. Oh, well. I wasn't going home to get another outfit. lol Thanks! :)

    1. I can't wait to read it! And we've got less than 20 episodes now. I can't remember exactly how many, but less than 20 is too few! Come on Season 9! lol Omg! Cherries! *runs to fridge to get a bowl* lol

  5. Your grandbabby is adorable :) I'm still behind on Supernatural - I think you've passed me now LOL but I guess that's good since I wont' be waiting for season 9 like everyone else. I hope you enjoy Division Zero, it was a good one. Have a great week and congrats on being so ahead!

    1. She's such a cutie and so good! She was just 'talking' away at us, grabbing her feet and chewing on her fingers. :)

      I can't believe you haven't resumed watching that yet. lol Ohhhh, I am so looking forward to Division Zero. Glad you liked it since that means I should, too. :) Being ahead feels sooooo good! Thanks!

  6. Omg, she's so stinkin cute!!

    Ugh, yes, we had senior pictures too. I thought having a son would be easier, but no. Still stressful and annoying.

    Anyway enjoy your books and grandbaby time!

    1. You should see her in person. The cuteness, it's too much! :D

      Uh, oh. I have 2 boys in high school behind Anna. I hope they aren't going to be as bad. lol

      Thanks! :)

  7. Aw, what a cutie pie!! I might be babysitting for a friend this week, and I'm super excited.

    1. She's just too cute! Babysitting is the bomb. After having my own kids (and with 3 of them still under 18), I appreciate getting to play with a baby and then send her home with her parents. :D

  8. Wow!! What a haul!! Good luck getting through them all!
    I am waaaay behind in Supernatural. I used to watch it all the time, but haven't lately.

    Have a great week!
    Thanx for visiting My Weekly Wrap-Up!

    1. She's a sweetie pie. :)

      That cover may be cute, but it's um, *coughs then whispers* erotica. Ahem. ;)

      I would have gone nuts without it. 2 hours?! With nothing to do? *has minor heart attack*

      Thanks! :)

    1. She is just so adorable. Especially now that she's doing baby talk which consists of giggles, squeals and babble all while capturing her feet or chewing on her fingers. :)

      Thanks! :)

    I never actually watched Supernatural but I'm watching Charmed right now (season 2/episode19) and when I finish that series I will watch Supernatural for sure. ^^
    Also, HAHAHAAAHA, you named your Paperwhite! Hehehe, Stargate is a pretty name. Do you think I should name my tablet? Name thought of it before hum... Any ideas?

      Supernatural is da bomb. I think when we're caught up we'll watch Grimm. After that...unknown. lol

      I also named my Fire Portal. It just looks cool on my account and on the device. LOL Ideas for your tablet? Hmmm...unsure. I had thought about naming my Paperwhite Enterprise or NC-1701 because I like Star Trek. :D
