The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.
My son is obsessed. He is obsessed with Nintendo and everything in it’s world, past and present. He loves the old Mario games, he loves Kirby, he’s even playing the second Zelda game right now.

If your kid loves scrolling games and has an imagination, they will love this game!

In case you didn’t know, Serena has been under a lot of pressure because she’s going for a grand slam of tennis. And Roberta spoiled it before Serena got to the finals. I mean, Oprah was there to witness!
But my point to all this is, if you watch enough sports, you realize quickly that there is nothing more awkward than someone being interviewed after they competed (okay, more awkward is if they lost).

And keep this in mind, Serena has been unbeatable for so long, tennis has gotten almost boring…
