HAPPIES

1. I am SO excited to tell you all that not only did our jeep get fixed last week, BUT my SPACESHIP IS BACK! I seriously have missed having 2 cars so very much!

2. I (along with my amazing friends Casey and Adrian) are having a blogger meet up in Waco, Texas on February 8th! We are sending out the evite this weekend so if you’d like to come, please leave your email in the comments! Spaces are limited because we have a few goodies from different sponsors, so please give us your email ASAP so you can RSVP!

3. This week has seriously just been an absolute blessing to us. I thought 2014 was going to be a crappy year (I mean, we didn’t have such a great start last week), but every day I am just thankful for all God does for us. I bought flowers to celebrate on Monday!

CRAPPIES

1. I’m SO not back into my groove at work when it comes to my schedule. I’m used to staying up late until 1 am, and waking up whenever, and having to switch back gears to getting up early and going to bed early has taken it’s toll on me. I’m so happy to be back at work, but I am ready for the weekend.

Now it’s your turn to link up! Tell us about the Happies and Crappies from your week!

HAPPIES

1. It’s Friday and I have a half day at work today! It’s also pajama day, which makes things infinitely better as well. It’s been a seriously long week and for some reason I felt as if it was dragging by even though I was insanely busy. I am so excited though to give my students their Christmas presents today, considering some of my students may not even get Christmas presents this year. I got them all puzzles and tried to fit the animal to their personality, so I hope they love them.

2. I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to go to a blogger meet up last weekend and meet with Laurie and Jessica of Ruthie and Rose, Casey of Real Suburbia, and Adrian of Revelry Beauty. I’ll be blogging about it next week (since I will officially be on vacaaaaation!) and I can’t wait to tell you all the fun things we did!

3. I made an amazing dessert the other day using Pillsbury Gluten Free Cookie Dough! I can’t wait to share it with you this Monday! I haven’t shared a recipe with y’all in a while, so I am super psyched!

4. Today is Pearl’s 2nd birthday! It’s been 2 years since our sweet nugget was born, and I couldn’t ask for a sweeter and cuddlier snuggle buddy and nap partner. She is an absolute blessing in our lives and she brightens up our days! I got this picture of her last weekend. Yeah, she looks a little bit of a mess (she hasn’t had a haircut since before our accident in October because her fur needed to grow our), but we love her so much. I think we’ll be taking her to the dog treat store today and buying her a cupcake or something to celebrate.

Our maltipoo, Pearl

CRAPPIES

1. I didn’t post anything on the blog all week. Real life snuck up on me and I definitely didn’t have any time to write this week. I’m so ready for my break!

2. My work has been providing us breakfast every day for 2 weeks, and lunches just about every other day…and now I’m getting fat(ter). Definitely will be putting in time at the gym while I’m on break!

3. My hands and cuticles have been extremely dry the past week because of the weather. My cuticles are all ripped up and they hurt because they’ve been tearing up so badly! I’ve been putting lotion and cuticle oil but none of it is working. Do you have a favorite hand cream that you really love?

4. I haven’t wrapped any Christmas presents so my tree looks empty. So sad.

HAPPIES

1. I have today off so I can get ready for Bloggy Boot Camp- Dallas! I am so excited! I’m actually already at Neely’s house and we’ve been having fun getting mani/pedis and eating Torchy’s Tacos. Have any of you ever had the amazingness that are Torchy’s Tacos? They’re so good!

Neely and I with our manicures

2. I got my hair done yesterday and really love how it turned out. They’re calling it “bronde” now, which to me means “dirty blonde” aka my natural color haha.

3. I got my blog business cards made just in time for Bloggy Boot Camp. They have my new logo, rounded corners, and updated links! I love how they turned out!

4. I am so excited to meet so many new people at BBC this weekend! I also can’t help but get excited that Lisa Leonard will be there and I just adore her! It’ll be good to see some familiar faces and some new faces too.

CRAPPIES

1. My car is still in the shop and just BARELY getting going with the repairs. I miss my car so much and I just want to be able to get it back in my possession.

2. I have a huge pile of papers to grade and I brought them home for the weekend. Yeah, I doubt I’ll do them.
