Let's Celebrate 2016 Challenges and Un-Boring Fun!

It's time to CELEBRATE This Week with Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build.  Every week Ruth invites us to share our celebrations from the week and link up at her blog. What a fun way to reflect on everything there is to be thankful for.

This week I'm celebrating school-wide collaboration!

Happy 2016! I'm looking forward to soaking this year up. My one little word for 2015 was grace and I had quite a few opportunities to practice grace. I hope I did a good job, I feel great about how I handled some tough situations last year. But this year, I'm all about cherishing all the moments and celebrating all the comes my way. I'm going to REVEL in all that 2016 brings my way (and anything I invite to come my way). 
I also have a few bookish plans for 2016. I signed up to do the Sixty Books in 2016 challenge. This shouldn't be a problem but I like the idea of joining in with others. I started to put covers of books up in my office window and I'm excited to add to it! We'll see how many I can finish before the end of the school year!
For some non-reading fun, I decided to join Nerdlution and practice yoga everyday and also some mindfulness by joining the Listers Gotta List challenge. There is a topic for a list everyday that I'm going to write up. For yoga, I'm hoping to make it to a few classes at my favorite local yoga place, Total Body Yoga, but otherwise, I'll be doing Erin Motz's 30 Day Yoga Challenge with Do You Yoga. Erin is the Bad Yogi and I kind of love her for it. 

And finally, I'm bringing back the Un-Boring List! I did Un-Boring Lists in 2012, 2013, and 2014 and I missed it in 2015, so here it is again!

Create paper mache book art 
like they have at Reading Reptile book store 
This year is really going to be the year!
Still need a bookish subject, ideas?!

Celebrate World Read Aloud Day
We usually host a picture-book-themed party!
I'm seeing a ninja-themed party...
or maybe a Star Wars-themed party...

Book Pic Fun
In 2013, I tried for a picture with a book everyday.
This year, I'm hoping to grab some book pics in fun spots
and maybe while doing some yoga poses. Something fun!

Book Swap
I've always wanted to have a book swap party!
Not sure if this will be adult book swap fun or kiddo book swap fun,
but either way a book swap sounds pretty un-boring to me!

More Indies!
I'm excited to visit old-familiar and new-to-me Indies!
Over the years, I've visited Indies that I might not have ventured out to visit if not for this challenge. We'll see what stores I manage to slip into this year!

Again, happy 2016, friends! 

I hope you have much to REVEL in and lots of bookish un-boring fun in 2016!What are you celebrating this week?
