The Sunday Post #5

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer, Itโ€™s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

We got back from our trip not too long ago, and while I missed the family members and friends there, as well as the place where we grew up- I’m so glad to be back!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I really wish my grandparents would consider moving to live with us.

Since we watched what movies we could while we were there (we rarely go to the movies at home), I imagine it will be quite a while before we go to watch any others. Which reminds me, did anyone else see the trailer for Stephen King’s The Shining‘s sequel?? It’s called Doctor Sleep!!

Here’s the trailer!


Lately I’ve been in a (rather late) Spring Cleaning mood, so I’ve been going through my bookshelves and getting rid of quite a few of them- getting them ready for giveaways and donating them mostly.

That ought to make my TBR mountain go down at least a bit! Lol

Some that are leaving my house soon include:

An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Wake by Amanda Hocking

Orleans by Sherri L. Smith

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green


And last week’s Sunday, I was so busy with Father’s Day I didn’t post! The plan had been for my family to wake up early and head to the beach for a morning picnic (my father’s favorite place), but some things happened and we ended up eating at a restaurant he picked and then renting some movies to watch together instead! โค

Hope you all had a great Father’s Day with your dads!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a lovely day!!

Thanks for reading!!

It seems my family mostly wants to watch the newest movies while on our trip, so that’s what we did again this week! ๐Ÿ™‚

Everyone enjoyed Pokรฉmon: Detective Pikachu, especially the guys, but while I didn’t love it I did find it rather cute and much better than I had expected!

Disney’s Aladdin was so funny and definitely a new favorite!! (Who knew Will Smith could sing that good??) Originally we hadn’t wanted to watch it, because we thought it would be a play- but spoiler- it wasn’t! It was like the live-action for Beauty and the Beast where they burst into song once in a while, but it was all old favorite songs (that were very hard not to sing along to in the movie theater)! I can’t picture the Genie as anyone but Will Smith now, he played the part perfectly!!

I re-watched some old favorite chick flicks, discovered I don’t like Sweet Orange tea, and ate my fill of no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies!! ๐Ÿ˜€

My family and I ate at Arby’s, tried the Jamocha shakes (definitely suggest!) & then went to the movie theater. We watched Godzilla: King of the Monsters!

Le Jamocha Shakes!

My brother and I watched all of the Godzilla movies when we were younger (yes, even the ones that no one knows exists!), so needless to say we were super excited about the new Godzilla: King of Monsters movie! The first one in 2014 had been great, and definitely our favorite- but this one tops it! We were very pleased with it, and how the writers used the old legends and versions of the monsters as well.

Would you guys be interested in seeing a post about it??

The Best Appetizers For Your Get-Together!

Does anybody else like to just ”wow” people with food??

(Please don’t let me be the only one…)

Well, whether it be a party, a Get-Together, or just a big meal- here’s some of the best appetizers (some are my own little creations, but not all) and the best part: they’re all SO. EASY!!


Brie Cheese, Sliced French Bread, and (optional) Dried Cranberries with (again, optional) a sweet and spicy glaze!

This is one of my own little things I decided to put together- and it turned out DELICIOUS!!

I didn’t put any butter on the sliced bread, I just put it on low on the grill and sliced some brie cheese and put it right on as it cooked! Don’t let the bread get brown or crispy, just get the cheese soft and warm!

You can add a glaze and dried cranberries onto as you cook if you would like, to give it some extra flavor that goes great with the creamy cheese. I used Rothschild’s Roasted Pineapple and Habanero sauce, not a whole lot mind you- it can get spicy pretty quick- if you just use a small tablespoon it’s more sweet than spicy!

Ladybug cookies!! โค

These are some little desserts I did for a tea party, that really hit well with everyone!

Put some red frosting on vanilla wafers, some black frosting for the dots (just a little!), and a junior mint for the head & there you go!! They’re not too sweet because the vanilla wafers aren’t really sweet, as long as you don’t throw too much frosting on you’ll be good!

Divine delicacy of crackers with special jam and cheese! โค

This is another go-to appetizer for me, because I’ll regularly put it together just for snack for myself so I know it’ll be quick and easy to take somewhere!

You can use any kind of cracker you want for this snack, but it depends on your taste buds! I would not suggest a cracker with a lot of salt, I use Wellington crackers or 34 Degrees crackers for these- but really just a plain one. Spoon out some Rothschild’s jam & Glaze on the cracker, the best flavors are Raspberry Honey Mustard, Hot Pepper Raspberry, & Roasted Pineapple and Habanero. (The last two have some spice, but not too bad and the honey mustard one has no spice at all!)

Finally, just add a small piece of either plain Goat Cheese or Blueberry Vanilla goat cheese on top the jam and there you go! You have a fancy, delicious appetizer that was quick and painless!


These are just my Top 3 favorite (and painless) appetizers I wanted to share with you all!

Another alternative, is just finding the right cracker and cheese or dip- and BOOM! There you go! Spinach and Artichoke dips are usually the best and most popular with crowds at get-togethers in that case, I’ve learned.


What are some of your favorite creations or snacks for guests or get-togethers??

Thanks for reading lovelies!!
