Happies & Crappies

The Vintage Modern Wife: Happies and Crappies Link Up
I'm linking up with Stephanie & Sarah this week for Happies & Crappies!  
Here are some of my HAPPIES:
  1. We went out and did something special for Carson every day this week (so far)!  We went to the pool (twice!), a new library for story time, a music class, and a few other things.  I'm totally loving summer and all the fun activities!
  2. There was a pesky little spider that was terrorizing me and hiding by my computer on my desk.  He would crawl across my screen taunting me.  I KILLED THE JERK.  Happy day. :)
  3. I found a super cute planner at Walmart (of all places!) for $3!  It's 18 months and is full of bright colors and inspirational quotes.  If anyone wants to buy me an Erin Condren still feel free to send it my way! ;)
    My planner has different colored stripes: aqua, purple, gray, lime green, etc.
  4. I used my broiler in the oven for the first time ever and didn't burn the house down!  I made up a recipe: oven roasted turkey & cheese subs.  So fancy, right?  I had leftover sub buns from meatball subs so I used turkey, pepperjack, red onion, lettuce, and spicy brown mustard.  Nick is always skeptical when I "make up" my own meals but he loved this one and was "surprised" how good it was!  (Thanks, honey!)
Now for the bad news, my CRAPPIES:
  1. We broke our SHOCK proof point & shoot camera.  Impressed?  Nick was passing it to me and I missed the catch and it fell on a hardwood floor.  I contacted Nikon and I have to send it into their repair center with a letter detailing "the event" and wait to see if they will fix it under warranty.  We just bought it in March so fingers are crossed!
  2. My brown thumb has been confirmed....again.  I bought a super cute Chrysanthemum plant for our kitchen and had it out for Carson's birthday party.  Less than a month later and the poor thing looks like it's 100 years old living in the desert.  At least my gardens outside look nice and lush!
  3. I slacked on meal planning this week so we cooked out three times.  Oops!  Nick didn't mind one bit!
  4. My job "situation" has had me stressed for MONTHS.  I'm extremely thankful to have a job, but stressed about the unknowns that the future holds!


  1. Cute planner!! And sending positive thoughts up about the job situation!

  2. However, these are the most functional for readers. Ebooks are available in PDF format also and
    some of websites provides booklet in various formats
    like Audio textbook so it becomes more easy to understand these books.
    A thought in this substance, produces the thing that is imaged by
    the thought.
