1. My keys got locked in my car at work the other day. I was absolutely upset at myself, but then some wonderful connections at work were able to find someone to unlock it for me for free. I was so thankful I didn’t have to pay $80 just to get Pop-A-Lock to come and rescue me! Even better, it was unlocked so quickly that my coworker and I were still able to make it to the gym!

2. Today is payday! That ALWAYS makes for a happy Stephanie. I plan on purchasing this beauty of a maxi from my friend Carole, who owns Pipley’s Boutique. No, this isn’t sponsored, I just about died when she said she would be putting it in her shop, and it’s so bright and pretty for spring. It makes me happy. Plus, I love that it has sleeves.

3. I’m on the hunt for a cute Valentine’s shirt or maxi dress. It’s driving me nuts but I have to find the perfect one for a fun Valentine’s shoot I have coming up. I hope I find something too! It’s been a while since I’ve had decent pictures of me taken! I love this one, but hate when I’ve never bought from a specific online store before because I have no idea how their clothes fit.

1. Work has been hard this week. I feel like our morale just isn’t that high right now, and this week has just not been the best. However, I’m determined to make next week a million times better!

2. I did NOT clean eat yesterday. We went out to dinner for a friend’s birthday, and I had crazy wings. Crazy wings are a piece of chicken with cheese and a jalapeno inside. Then, it’s wrapped in bacon and deep fried. I may have had 4 or 5 of them. Oops. One meal of cheating is only allowed every once in a while so it’s back to clean eating today.

3. I have TONS of ideas for blogging but have been exhausted. I’m still trying to get back into a work routine and it’s difficult!

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