Happies & Crappies: Week 1

Happy Friday, lovers!

I'm really excited about this new linkup hosted by Stephanie and Sarah. It's basically just sharing your highs and lows of the week. Nice way to help you get perspective that perhaps not all that much is crappy in life.

The Vintage Modern Wife: Happies and Crappies Link Up


Today is the start of a three-day weekend. Thank you, MLK Jr.

I got some new followers on the blog this week, and I've blogged almost every day.

Addy came home last Saturday! She had been in Iowa since Christmas while we were galavanting in Europe, and we missed her like crazy.

B and I had date night on Wednesday. Dinner at Chipotle and Zero Dark Thirty.

I booked my trip to Kansas City to be with my girls and go bridesmaid dress shopping.

My lawyer sent our demand to the insurance company for my car accident from July 2011...it's been a long process and I hope it wraps up soon!

I had Mac 'N Cheese (spirals, from a box) and wine for dinner last night and it was awesome.


We had to shell out $500 to fix our furnace, which we found broken upon our return from Europe.

We had to pay that $500 on top of paying the mortgage, which is why I was having Mac 'N Cheese for dinner.

I only worked out once.

I didn't cook one meal. Almost everything was eating out or microwaveable.

I've been sick now for 2 weeks. Go away, cough!

It's freezing here in Chicago.

What were your Happies and Crappies this week?


  1. I am so thankful for the three day weekend! I need to have a few days off and I am going skiing tonight until Sunday as well. What a fun linkup, too! I can imagine being apart from the pooch was hard - I hated every day without Heavenly!
