Happies, Crappies, and an Invitation to a Blogger Meet Up!

The Vintage Modern Wife and Brunch With Amber: Happies and Crappies Link Up

Welcome to our 50th week of Happies and Crappies link up day! H&C wouldn’t have been around for so long if it wasn’t for you awesome ladies linking up, so Amber and I really appreciate you!

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!


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!

    Glad you got your car back!

    I’m SO not back into the groove when it comes to work or blogging. I just can’t seem to find the time to do everything I need to do!

  6. Heya! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours require a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my
    diary daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
