End of the Week Roundup

Normally the first week back from vacation is excruciatingly slow. Luckily for me, this week flew by!

1. This time last Friday, I was having my last breakfast down in OBX with my friends and prepping for a day on the beach. Needless to say, the chances that last Friday will top this Friday are high.

2. I finished Gone Girl on Wednesday and it was such a great book, even if the ending left a bit to be desired. I understood why it ended the way it did though. 

3. ...then I demanded Dave take me to see the movie the same day I finished the book. Both were excellent and we had one of the best "after movie" conversations on the way home from watching the film.

4. I think saying Nibbler is happy I'm home is an understatement.

5. This week I created a bear that I'm currently auctioning off. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to research of breast cancer. Please check out my Facebook page, Quilts by Nicole and share my status. It's my hope that we can spread the word and donate to a good cause, plus if you win the auction you get the bear!


  1. I love great after-movie conversations. Might need to go see this one, since everything we've been watching has been so incredibly man-centric. He owes me lol


    1. I would highly recommend it! It's a really dark movie but it makes you think.

  2. I need a nibbler in my life :-D I'm so excited for your bear! It's going to be a great auction!!

  3. Gone girl is definitely on my list for books to read:)

  4. I read Gone Girl last weekend and really liked it. Can't wait to see the movie. Maybe tonight!

    Hope you have a great weekend, even if it can't be as good as last week!

  5. I neglected to respond to your post on my FB. I too feel the same way as you. I didn't necessarily LIKE the ending.. but it was really the only obvious way it could end. Even though Steve wont read the book, I'm going to make him take me to the movie. Also, you bear is adorable! Fantastic job, love!!!

  6. I REALLY want to read Gone Girl! I wont allow myself to see the movie until I read the book!


Comments make me happier than hearing bacon sizzling in a pan.

I always reply to comments, so if you don't hear from me personally that means you are a no reply blogger! Either update your blogger profile so I can share the love or leave me your email!
