Books that I read for fun in February 2016

Over the last year and a half, I started documenting the books that I read for fun (and not just for review purposes).  I have decided that I need to continue that as reading is important part of how I relax. Books that I read for fun are books that I have not been asked to review and that I have chosen to read, well because I like to read. In 2015, I read a total of 49 books! This year, 2016, I am aiming to read 52 books. 

So how did I do in February: 

I am still thoroughly enjoying Susan Mallery's series "Fool's Gold." I am up to book #10 in the series and I believe there are 20 books so far in it. It is really good, even if my dear hubby teases me for wanting to read them in order. You could probably read them not in order, but they kind of build on each other in the way that she introduces her characters. I would highly recommend the series.



I have a goal to expand my reading habits and to try to include at least one non-fiction book each…

What's for dinner?

One of the things that I want to do in 2016 is to plan our dinner menus weekly and post them here for accountability.Breakfasts are usually yogurt and fruit or cereal and fruit for the kids and Bill and I find whatever we are in the mood for. Lunch is usually something quick for Benjamin (chicken nuggets, corn dog, PB and J) with fruit and leftovers for Bill and I. During the school year, Rebecca and Jacob get free lunch at their school. That leaves dinner for the family....

I started menu planning at the beginning of the year and I will say that with a few exceptions, it has worked!
