The Vintage Modern Wife: Happies and Crappies Link Up

Welcome to our  36th week of Happies and Crappies link up day! We wouldn’t have been around for so long if it wasn’t for you awesome ladies linking up, so we really appreciate you!

The deets on Happies and Crappies link up:

1. Pearl’s training has been going exceptionally well! She is learning “down” this week and is getting it pretty well so far. I’m excited that she’s been working so hard at her trainings.

2. Katie’s Custard in town has Harvest Cyclones back! If you’re not a Wacoan, basically the Harvest Cyclone is a cup of vanilla frozen custard (which I think is WAY better than froyo or ice cream) mixed with pieces of pumpkin pie. I saw the sign yesterday that it was back for the season, and had Mathew get us some for dessert. My favorite part is finding huge pieces of crust! Yum!

3. I feel blessed knowing that I have a really good class. I went to a training and some teachers were talking about their problem student(s) and it just made me feel good that I really could hardly think of any kinds of problems I’ve had to deal with.

4. I am getting this AWESOME Love My State necklace from The Vintage Pearl. I can’t wait to have it here! I’m going to wear it everyday. I am having them put a heart where Corpus Christi would be, because I grew up there and will ALWAYS have my heart there.

I HAVE to have this Texas Love My State necklace from The Vintage Pearl!


This will be my third piece of jewelry from TVP since my awesome Blissdom roomie, Ashley, got me the Circle of Love necklace at Blissdom, and then she sent me the Initial on a Chain necklace for graduation this past year!

Love this Circle of Love necklace from The Vintage Pearl on Stephanie from The Vintage Modern Wife! So cute!
Ashley and I at Blissdom!


1. I’ve been SO exhausted this week. Like more than normal. The other night I was so tired after work that I came home, ate dinner, and fell asleep on the couch at 7:45! It wasn’t even dark outside yet! It’s why I haven’t blogged at ALL this week (other than H&C and NEE).

2. A coworker of mine’s grandma is very close to passing away. She’s in the hospital right now being kept “comfortable”. I’d really appreciate any prayers you can send their way!

Ps- go enter my Diamond Candle giveaway! 

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