This was going to be a bitchy post but then I had a change of heart and a million happy/funny things happened to me and I just snapped out of my bitter mood. So today I’m linking up with the amazingly wonderful Chelsea from The New Wifestyle (who just spent the week in Hawaii (shut up!!) with her birthday-boy husband) for her Tell Me Something Good Friday!

Speaking of Chelsea, that selfless, giving, big-hearted woman sent me some cloth napkins that came her way via a generous neighbor. I super LOVE that we have some cloth napkins around the house now so we can use them at every meal verses creating waste with paper napkins and paper towels. Yay!!


Also arriving in the mail this week was this book. (Cue the embarrassing story…)

So I open my mailbox and find this book addressed to me from the author (!!). I excitedly open my random package and squeal to my husband that “I’ve finally made it as a blogger! An author just sent me her book to review! Someone actually sent me something for free!” Then the next day I’m browsing my usual blogs and see this post from Kristin at SYIAP. And I realize that about a month ago I signed up to receive this book. So no one hunted me down or sought me out- I signed up for the copy of the book.

I’m such a dip sometimes.


Moving on…

I won one of those awesome rafflecopter-y giveaways!! I seem to have good luck with these giveaways and I am SO thankful to the hosts for doing these. Now I can get some fancy make-up from Ulta! Thank you:

This week feels like it’s dragging on… but at least it’s been a pretty good week! This weekend we’re taking our annual anniversary picture with our tree, and I get to see two of my best friends from high school, and on Sunday we’re watching my baby brother graduate from OSU! (a.k.a. I’m going to sit in a stadium for +6 hours and read a book.) Plus it’s Mother’s Day so I’m expecting a diamond necklace from my fur-kids (kidding).

Ok. I’m done rambling. Tell me about something good in your life! What are your plans this weekend?

  1. Haha that is too funny about your book. You should still be excited cause it’s a free book! Lol. Congrats on winning the rafflecopter giveaway! I haven’t won anything yet but I hold out hope.


    1. As soon as I realized that I’d actually signed up for the book I called my husband with my head hung in shame. He found it quite commical 😀 Haha!
      I never win ANYTHING but so far I think I’ve won three rafflecopters! I make $0 blogging so it’s a nice treat to win once in a while! 🙂


  2. Hope those fur-kids get that diamond necklace for you 🙂 I’ll just be happy if Harvey Dent doesnt tear something up 🙂 haha

    Ahh – Just go with the first story of the book. You are a big time blogger! 🙂 … I actually downloaded that on Kindle & cant wait to get into it after I finish my book I’m reading now.

    I almost bought some cloth napkins & then though… ugh… more laundry 🙂 haha #lazy


    1. Honestly, I wear my engagement/wedding rings and occasional a necklace my husband bought me a few years ago- I don’t need another piece of jewelry. Haha. I’d never wear it 🙂

      I’m a few chapters in and I’m enjoying it as a light read. I think it’d be perfect for a beach holiday (or a long flight!). And I love doing laundry, so I’m totally ok with the large load! Haha!


  3. I totally think it still counts as you being a big-time blogger. And the book sounds really interesting!


  4. Hahaha that book thing is something I would do!!! Winning giveaways is so awesome! I think I’ve won two and I was SO stoked both times because I never win stuff! Graduations are WAY TOO LONG. The biggest school I’ve been to a graduation for was UC Berkeley and it took forever and I’m sure OSU’s is way longer since it’s so big!


    1. I felt like such a goon when i realized my mistake. Ha!
      I really hope I’m totally wrong… buuuuut I doubt it. I think it’s gonna take a long time. Oh well. Sunday is also my brother’s birthday, haha! We have reservations at a super fancy restaurant afterward so I probably shouldn’t complain!!


  5. gah graduation season. both of my brothers-in-law decided to graduate college the same year, that my sister graduated high school, so I sat through THREE different ceremonies within three weeks of each other. I love that your mood got turned around…makes such a difference, especially heading into the weekend!


    1. That’s A LOT of graduations 🙂 When I graduated college two of my best friends did, too, so I went to their graduations. Actually, I think one was the same day as mine, so I missed it, but then I went to her grad school ceremony two years later so I made up for it!! Ha!


    1. Last weekend had a ton of awesome, unexpected surprises 🙂 Now the pressure is on to not waste this gift card and research the products I want/need!!


  6. yay! glad those napkins arrived (and the post office people didn’t steal them for themselves!) i love your honesty about feeling grumpy and blah initially but then choosing to move out of it. thanks for that reminder that we really can choose to focus on certain things!


    1. I was so excited when I found the package on our porch! And they match our blue placemats perfectly! It was fate!! So happy to have this link-up as a Friday option!
