New Year, Thank God!

Happy New Year! Bye Bye 2016 and hello 2017! I for one am so relieved to say goodbye to that awful year. There were ups and downs, and even though there were more downs than ups, we made it through.

I know that the blog has looked extremely bare the last few months, I just got overwhelmed with the second half of the year, but like I said, new year. New rejuvenated energy and I'm going to get this in order over the next couple of days (weeks). There will be new reviews and hopefully back to some fun things.

Now last year, we did the Reading Bingo. I kind of failed to keep at it, but Stephanie didn't! She got through most of it.

Let's see what she accomplished.
