1. Mathew and I celebrated our anniversary this week! I’ll be talking about our anniversary next week, but we had a blast. Fancy dinner, beautiful roses, and ice skating- it was a wonderful night.

2. More and more people from work are reading my blog. It makes me happy when they say, “Hey- I saw your anniversary post! Y’all are so cute!” or something random about a blog post. It’s so great that they support me. So…everyone from work that’s reading (Hi, Kenna!)… y’all rock!

3. Our awesome friend, Kasey, that works at our apartment complex won the Ondreya lamps from Ashley Furniture HomeStore on Tuesday! I was so excited that my readers and friends were “friending” them on Facebook to automatically enter their 25 Days of Christmas giveaway! If you haven’t friended them on Facebook, make sure you do NOW so you can win something fun for your home this Christmas.

4. I found out that the day before we get off of break for Christmas vacation is pajama day at work. I’m SO excited to wear my new flannel pants and matching top from Old Navy (I got them for a STEAL on Black Friday). Pajamas at work is SO going to be fun.

5. I got to hang out with my niece for Thanksgiving (and of course my brother, sister, cousin, aunts, uncles, grandmother, and parents- but that’s besides the point) and took this adorable picture with her. I can never get enough of those adorable dimples!


1. My favorite (and only) pair of leggings ripped on Tuesday (our anniversary) before Mathew and I went ice skating. Needless to say, I was a little sad! I loved them. I replaced them yesterday with a new pair from Kohl’s though!
2. Mathew and I took out all the Christmas stuff on Sunday and have everything done except for the tree. I’ve been wanting to do it all week, but when we started stringing the lights on the tree, some how we have like 1/3 of the tree that needs lights! Then we went to the store and tried to buy the lights, but they were out. So Mathew called another Walmart and made me go all the way and get them, only to find that they saved me the wrong bulbs. So Mathew returned them and saw that our regular Walmart had the lights, so he got them. I put a box on the tree, turned them on- and they’re like warm white aka orange instead of a cool white. Needless to say, we still have to return our lights AGAIN, and get the right ones. So FRUSTRATING!

3. I have not made it to the gym in 2 weeks. My coworker and I are both piled with stuff that we need to do in our actual classrooms (and really can’t take home) and we’ve been staying SO late at work. Our cars have been last (or almost last) in the parking lot ALL week.

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

  1. Your niece is adorable. Also, your tree story sounds so frustrating, that is why I am afraid to switch to LED lights for mine…

  2. Kohl’s has the best leggins and with their prices and sales, it’s amazing I have any money left in my banking account.

  3. Those flowers are gorgeous!
