Hi, friends! And welcome back to Little Happies... the happiest little link-up on the planet, in which we all share the joyful minor cool things going on in our lives currently. Now, what could be happier than that?
I've gotta preface this week's Happies by saying John and I have been in a funky funk lately. He's had a really rough go at work these past few weeks and my new progesterone prescription is making me tired, cranky, and blaaah. And then CD1 happened and... you get the picture. Basically, we've been a double hot mess lately. BUT, none of that nonsense has stopped us from counting our blessings and embracing the good. So, despite all the crud we've been working through lately, we still have lots to be thankful for...
'Scuse the selfie.
And sorry I kept you all in suspense on this one. I kept the chevron top! (Just call me Chevron Weasley.) And then I rocked it on Monday and felt like a million bucks. It always feels good to wear newly purchased clothing, no? It brings about a special kind of confidence.
Then, the day was made even better by a trip to our favorite fried chicken restaurant. I may have gone off the anti-inflammatory diet quite a bit (sweet tea and mac n' cheese and fried chicken), but it made the CD1 blues go away reeeeal quick. Worth it.
Upon arriving at work on Tuesday, a coworker approached me and one other female coworker and said she was sick of seeing poop accidentally left behind in the toilet and was pretty sure it was one of our male coworkers. Ha! I did all I could to not giggle through the whole conversation. In the end, our plan of action was to put up a sign for a week to see if it made a difference. And since my lady coworkers consider me the "tech savvy" one (they're both more than double my age), they put me in charge of making the sign. I tried to keep it playful and goofy, but still make the point.
How'd I do? :)
When someone tells me to go to my happy place, I drive to Teavana.
First, just look at how pretty it is! Color color color!
Second, they let you SMELL ALL THE FLAVORS. Free smells!
Third, if you pick one of the cheaper teas, you can have them brew you a cup for just $2.99. It's my favorite way to try new teas.
And in case you were curious, my current two favorite summer flaves are Blackberry Mojito Green Tea and Passion Tango, iced... obvi!
We took a cooking class at Whole Foods! The theme was "A Night in Morocco" and it was deliciously fun! A great date night, indeed. I plan on posting a more detailed review with pics and recipes later this week, so look out for that.
Actually, it was a bit of an action packed weekend. Friends over on Friday night, cooking class date night on Saturday, and pottery painting with the youth group on Sunday. Whew!
I decided to paint a plate for my jewelry. Right now, my earrings and bracelets and watches are just a hodge podge mess in a cupboard in our bedroom. But not after this comes home! It should be ready for pick up later this week.
For a while now, John and I have wanted to buy a chalkboard for our apartment, but never found one we both liked. That is, until this past week. We found this one at Hobby Lobby and fell in love pretty instantly. However, once we got it home, we realized the blackboard part of it was just a piece of smooth black plastic. And it was horrible for writing on with chalk. LAME.
So, instead of doing what a normal person would do and just returning it to the store, John decided to take matters into his own hands and FORCE the lame black plastic to become an actual chalkboard. How, you wonder? Well, with chalkboard paint, of course! 4 coats and 3 days of drying later, we are proud to say we have a fully functional and fashionable chalkboard on our wall now. LOVE.
Pretty sure the best part of the whole ordeal was having a fun project to work on together.
Have a lovely week, friends! Can't wait to read to read your Happies!
