Books!! My life

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! + Birthday Haul! :D

Good morning, everyone! As you probably saw by the title, today is my birthday! *confetti* I’m so grateful that God has given me this many years of life! πŸ˜€

We actually celebrated my birthday on Saturday which was super fun, so today, I’m doing a little birthday haul. πŸ™‚

**I’m not doing this brag. I love reading these posts, so I like to do some of my own! Thank you to my family for the gifts! :D**

Happy birthday to meeee! (we got a huge balloon. XD)



First off, my parents got me a new Bible!!! I’ve had my old one for quite a few years now and it was starting fall apart… and I really like this new one!!! πŸ˜€ Also included in this gift, but not pictured is a Strong’s Concordance coming in March! (I can’t stand using the internet one. XD)


Then from my Grandma and Grandpa, I got this thing called The Word in Color, plus some stamps! πŸ™‚


Inside, it has cards with Bible verses on them that you can color. On the back, there’s space to write, and you can treat them like postcards! I know will definitely be using these. πŸ˜‰


Next up, I got this cute little toolbox (it looks like great storage!!) with a small vase with a flower in it, a giftcard, (more on that below) and….


STARBURST JELLYBEANS! (aka the best kind!) I’m tempted to save them for April because candy = rewards for writers and Camp NaNo… (WHO ELSE IS SUPERRRR EXCITED FOR CAMP NANOOOO?!?!) but they might get too old. XD Also, I might eat them all first. πŸ˜›


And BOOKS! πŸ˜€


I received books 3-6 in the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series! (I already own 1 and 2) (and yes, those are different editions. XD)


I also got a copy of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! This is such a funny book. My brother actually started reading yesterday and I believe he finished it! I was shocked. He picked it up all by himself when he usually only ever reads comic books/graphic novels, and books my mom makes him read for school.

Also, this book is surprisingly hard to take pictures of… maybe it was just the weird lighting yesterday. I don’t know… πŸ˜›


Finally, I got one giftcard to Barnes & Noble, as well as two giftcards to a local used book store!! πŸ˜€ (Guess who’s gonna be buying several books in the near future?! *raises hand eagerly*)

Well, that about wraps it up! Thank you to my family who helped me celebrate my birthday! <3

I hope you enjoyed this post! πŸ˜‰ Happy birthday to me!


Do you like books? Is your birthday in February? Have you ever sent a postcard? Would you like to see a haul of the books I end up buying?

      1. I have! Well, I’ve read most of them 😝 I think I paused in the middle of the last one :/ Probably one of those instances where I was reading a lot of books at the same time and only finished 3/4ths of them πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­

      2. Okay, cool! πŸ™‚ I’m currently reading the third one.
        Yeah… I do that too, but I usually continue reading them at some point, maybe. XD

I love comments!! The only thing I ask is that you keep them clean. Thank you! :D
