Another AMAZING package for #coffeebeanbookclub. Thank you so much! The puzzle is beautiful and oh my GOSH the whole box smelled amazing because of the bath bombs (yes they are already opened because I had to get a closer smell lol)
I love our group!

@Eggs #wondrouswednesday
🥚yep! This year with a double dose of church (penny is singing in the children‘s choir) then family lunch and egg hunt.
🥚 not at all. Between two jobs, parenting, food poisoning, and school this month is kicking my hiney.
🥚 my family and animals!

BethM Anything stomach is automatically 100x worse when you‘re a mom! 1mo
Mommamanzi @BethM seriously. Penny and I were the only ones who got it (banana pudding) and cleaning up after her made me have to clean up after myself. We are still so weak but no “active issues” haha 1mo

Amazing AMAZING package, thank you!! And ooooh you have no idea how bad I wanted The Ex Hex!!! I pushed my coffee for this month aside to have this coffee, cannot wait to try it in the morning. My 7 year old literally faught me over the pen (she won the battle but I will win the war!) and note there are eggs missing already (I hid them WAY up high, winning the war and all). Thank you!!!! #coffeebeanbookclub

I am blessed enough to work in a field where I have freedom of time and have been able to be therefor almost every pick up, drop off, race, game, and dinner with my little ones. Never thought I could ask or want more. BUT another perfect “dream job” fell into my lap. I am now a reading coach at our elementary school. I have k-2 come through my class. I get hugs in the hallway from my 5 year old and I get to eat lunch with my 7 year old. ❤️❤️

I have become MIA from MOST of the internet lately. It was a hard but also amazing year for my family. Some of y‘all know May and June were scary for me. But everyone is thriving and my husband made not only one but two of my dreams come true. I have a beautiful little free library AND chickens. Here are 4 of the many. I‘m happier than ever, just want time to slow down with my babies (and to catch up on my reading!).

The past two weeks have been beyond crazy. I‘m sorry I‘m so late opening/posting. My little man got sick (and is still fighting it) and had to stay in from trick or treating while my other two got to go. This package legit saved him from a full on melt down. Between the jelly window clings, and the awesome diy lanterns (and Shrek‘s Spooky Tales on tv) you seriously saved Halloween. I LOVE my books and can‘t wait to start them! THANK YOU!!!

Our LFL, The Monarch Manor, opened last week. It was a crazy wild ride and thank God my BFF drove over to help me set up, make sure I ate, and kept my nerves down. I was so scared no one would show up. That was not the case though, we ended up getting 37 books into kids hands in ONE afternoon. I‘m so excited I get to bless children this way! It was a great success!!!

Can we talk about how awesome this dude is? He absolutely hates reading, doesn‘t understand why I do it so much, enjoy it, or spend money on books (I know, I know, he has good qualities too, I swear!) BUT he loves me enough to learn how to wood work, paint, seal, and about a million other little things to make my hearts desire come true! Our families very own LFL!

Fluffball Renegade is growing way too fast. Roman wants to change his name to “Lisa” I think we should rename him Sir Destruction. He has discovered how to tunnel through pillows and knock things off tables… like books, candles, and drinks. I‘m still in love with him though. Definitely more action than any four of the dogs! #catsoflitsy #FluffballRenegadeMeowCowManzi #akaLisa

Ask me how proud I am of Miss Penny Pie?! A few of you know she has been struggling this year with her reading as she is going through eye therapy. She has two eye turns and only 1% depth perception. And yet she persevered.... don‘t know why it says 2017 BUT it is what it is. She went back into a school setting with only 2 months left to go and NAILED it.
Penelope was born an old artistic soul and I am so grateful to be her mom.

@Kshakal I am not going to lie. That candy bar didn‘t make it an hour out of the postal packaging. Penny and I ate it during our spelling studies haha. It was a great motivator for both of us. I‘m in love with the pot holders. Thank you so much!! #coffeebeanbookclub #yallmyfav!

Kshakal @Mommamanzi I am not going to lie... it almost didn‘t make into the package!! Lol!! 12mo
LazyOwl The pot holders are so cute 12mo

Thank you so much for such a cool package @Chrissyreadit the coffee made the whole box smell amazing. I have been drinking iced coffee due to no AC in 85-90 degree weather. But hopefully Tuesday I can have a nice hot cup of coffee and a melty stropwafle to start my day off perfect. The coloring book is BEAUTIFUL. Thank you for all the thought and beautiful packaging you always put into your packages.

Chrissyreadit I‘m glad you like everything- I loved the puzzle and hoped it was not one you have. 12mo

You managed to capture everything Penelope loves. She is currently sleeping in bed with the Magic Tree House Survival Guide. She wants to know how YOU knew she wanted it so bad for her birthday (this Saturday). Thank you so much for such a fun swap for the kiddos (and adults). @Chrissyreadit #adventureswap

Chrissyreadit I‘m so glad! I took Skye shopping and her mom helped her wrap everything- sorry I see price stickers left on 😞 12mo
Chrissyreadit Skye really enjoyed picking out items. It was fun to see how she chose. I‘m so glad the Survival Guide is a hit! 12mo

Mehso-so

I was immediately drawn in by this book. Before I knew it I was halfway into it and could not put it down. I have not read anything like it before. BUT the ending left me with SO many questions. I like a neat, tidy, and definite ending. The ending still has me thinking (totally in a good way). Step up for others, question when something doesn‘t seem right.

BethM Your new profile pic is gorgeous 🔥🔥🔥🔥 13mo
Mommamanzi @BethM haha thank you! My oldest loves my hair now because it‘s “normal person” hair. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 12mo

Beyond late on this post BUT here is my tbr for April 2021... I‘ve finished 0. Just started The Power. WOW!

Tera66 I haven't posted my review yet, but I just finished The Power yesterday. It is alot. Can't wait to hear what you think! 13mo
Avanders Hi pretty lady - love your new profile pic! 💞💞 Also - look forward to hearing your thoughts on The Power! 13mo
Mommamanzi @Tera66 and @avanders I‘m at 75% done.... I‘m only reading a couple chapters a night and trying to digest all of it. This is a harder read for me than A Handmaids Tale. Jeeeeeeeeeze. 12mo
Tera66 @Mommamanzi Right?! I wasn't ready. 12mo
Avanders It is ... super intense! But I was impressed with what I thought was the range of her thought experiment... 🧨💥 12mo

Picture perfect. What is not seen is the OTHER one shooting the China cabinet with a high power nerf gun yelling “you‘ll never catch me blondie!.”Never a dull moment in the Manzi house. So proud of my two readers. ❤️ and just for the record.... momma caught him lol.

This was such an amazing Easter box. Thank you so much! I LOVE my tea towel. Penelope laughed and said “that‘s what you always say in the morning!” My cup matches my house (one of my fav colors) the bunny already lost its ears and head and I can not WAIT to try the coffee. Thank you thank you! #coffeebeanbookclub

Kshakal @Mommamanzi I am so happy you like it!! The coffee is amazing... I got some from Beth (I think) and loved it! 13mo
