Spring Reading Thing 2011

I've decided to be a part of Callapidder Day's Spring Reading Thing 2011.  And that's the 2nd time I've written "2001" instead of "2011..."wait, just did it again.  Hmm, apparently I am living in the past! 

Anyway, I am going to take it pretty easy on myself and say that my main goal for this is just to read as much as I can and ENJOY it!  I'm thinking that once baby boy comes (end of July...eeek!) I will have even less free time, so I'm going to make the most of G's nap time and the time between when she goes to bed and J and I go to bed.

The books that I am hoping to read are:
 Yes, yes I did start to read this in the last challenge.  No, no I did not finish it.  Definitely hoping to this time though.  It just was hard for me to read because I felt like the author kept jumping around too much for me.  I've pushed through though and am now at a point where I feel like I can read the rest if I just make the time.

This was the free audiobook one month at Christian Audio (go there!!  They have a new free book to download every month!)  I started listening to my brother's copy a few months ago, but it's hard to listen to when you've got a toddler you're trying to keep entertained on a loooooong car trip!  This is a recommendation from my younger (and smarter ;)) brother.

This was another free download from Christian Audio, and one that I'm really excited about!  

Saw this one on someone else's reading list and thought, "Why not?!"

Another recommendation from my little bro

So there you have it.  There are some other books that I have just waiting for me, but these ones are the ones that I want to focus on, and if I am able to get through them and onto the next bunch, so be it :)

I Heart Faces: Anything But A Face

This week at I Heart Faces, the challenge is "Anything But A Face."  I love this picture of my sweet girl because we told her that there was snow, and she immediately ran to her room, threw on her rain boots, scarf, and hat...over her jammies of course! :)  Once she got out there she wasn't real sure what to do, but she sure knew how to dress!
