I came across a fun post on Blu Chicken Ninja today and decided I wanted to do this tag. The Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt! Took me awhile to do because my books are scattered between our first floor and second floor. But it was good exercise 🙂

The Z in Elizabeth is the closest I could get.

This one is the only one I could not find. I scoured all of my books but no such luck!

So it’s only a partial boy but it’s the best I could do.
