Life update
I haven't really told anyone this since I'm a pretty private person, but I've been making changes to work towards losing weight and getting healthy.  I've lost 22 pounds over the last couple months.  I go back to my doctor on Tuesday so I'll have an update then on if I've lost any more since my last appointment two months ago.  I'm starting to notice a difference in the way my clothes fit and in the way I look, so that's really exciting.  I have more energy and I don't get tired as fast as I used to.  I just have to remember to be patient, because it's a slow process. I'm excited to see where these next few months take me.  

I decided to redo the shelves for my signed books last night.  I really like how they turned out.  What do you think?
This is the top shelf with signed books by Adriana Locke, RC Boldt, Elisabeth Grace, Faith Andrews, and Allie Able.  I have 2 mugs with book covers by RC Boldt.  You'll have to ignore the little Chick-fil-A cow.  My son thought it would be cute to add that, haha.  :)  I also have a star jar inspired by Colleen Hoover's book Slammed.


This is the middle shelf and has signed books by Stacey Lewis, Cambria Hebert, B.A Wolfe, Rebecca Yarros, Molly E. Lee, and Jennifer L Allen.  I have the Bookworm Box squishy book, a Romeo & Rimmel Valentine's Day card and the Bath&Body Works #Hashtag inspired sanitizer.  On the end is a Best Book B*tches glass that was a gift from a book friend.


The third shelf is my signed Colleen Hoover shelf.  I'm only missing 3 of her books, which I just ordered last night.  There is a Slammed inspired keychain and another star jar, both made by the wonderful Jenn at Bookish Crafts by Jenn.
