1. My signed copy of New York magazine arrived! I’m so excited that I won this giveaway and that Jessica took the time to sign it for me. I need to find a good place to put it now!

2. My little Pookie turned 21 on St. Patty’s Day. She’s the baby in the family and we’re pretty close, so I was sad I missed out on her birthday, but what are ya gonna do. In any case, I’m happy to say she’s now legal!

3. A friend shared this post on Facebook yesterday and I couldn’t help but die laughing. People can really be stupid. It definitely put me in an incredibly good mood. I hadn’t laughed that hard in a while!


1. My stats are not showing on WordPress and it’s bugging the heck out of me. I use jetpack to view my stats each day yet somehow it’s showing that I have NOTHING from the past 10 days. I know that’s not true, and I’m trying to figure out the problem, but it’s bugging me.

2. I’ve sucked at the whole #VMWeveryday2014 picture taking on Instagram. Some days, I feel like I have nothing good to take a picture of. I work, come home, make dinner, watch tv for like an hour, and go to bed. My life is SO not glamorous and picture taking was becoming a chore. I’m thinking about stopping it for a little while…

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

  1. Happy Birthday Pookie! Still love that you call your sister that while I call my hubby that!! 🙂 So cool you won the autographed magazine from JS!!

    PS, I work from home and still end up taking pictures of silly things for no reason! HAHA!! But yea I look back at it sometimes or on my Facebook page and think, “Diana, stop posting so much!”

    xoxo Happy Weekend!

  2. That’s weird about your WP stats. One of my widgets hasn’t been working for a week and a half and it’s driving me crazy!

  3. I feel ya on the whole not always having something to take a picture of. I do the Fat Mum Slim Photo a Day. That way even if I’m not feeling creative there’s a prompt. I may cheat from time to time…but so far I have a picture for every day.
