What I've Been Doing This Week Instead of Reading…

It’s week 8 of 2012, and I’m already slacking on my Reading Challenge goals. This is incredibly sad to me, but I have a few reasons why I’ve been a reading bum.

I’ve Been a Reading Slacker Because I’m…

1. Celebrating the wedding of one of my best friends, Kelly!! The big day is tomorrow! Woop Woop!

2. Watching Downton Abbey. Let’s just say I watched the ENTIRE first season last weekend. Maggie Smith is not impressed.

3. Playing the Bejeweled app on Chrome. There is just no excuse for this.

4. Pinning home decor ideas like mad on Pinterest.

5-8. Eating things (very bad things). Drinking tons of coffee. Stressing out. and Sleeping (very little). These are un-pictured for obvious reasons. :)

I can’t wait to take this next week to chill out a bit and bring my life back to neutral. I hope everyone else is reading tons and having an awesome weekend!

See you Monday!

    Love your post! Have fun at the wedding, wait until you finish season 2 of Downton Abbey (loved it and can’t wait for season 3!), playing Bejeweled Blitz on fb, and am delinquent about my reading too!!

    I’m joining you on the pinterest bit. In fact instead of reading yesterday I went to my first ever sports match (cricket) and tomorrow I’m off to a homemakers expo. Hoping to get loads of deco ideas. Have a fab week.

      Wendy, that sounds really fun! I should see if there’s any events like that in my area! I hope you had a great time! :)

    I’ve totally slacked this week as well. Not doing awesome things like you, but mostly zoning out and doing nothing. OR watching some Battlestar Gallactica. Don’t judge me!

    Also, DOWNTON FOR LIFE.

    So I planned to get a lot of reading done this weekend, but I had heard about Downton Abbey, so I gave it a go on Netflix, and then Saturday was over! I watched the full first season! I was sooo not expecting it to be so good!
