New Linky and Follow Friday

Do you follow your favorite bloggers on social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram? Personally, I feel that you get to know bloggers through social media better than on their blog sometimes! I personally prefer Instagram and Twitter, and that's how I've gotten to know several of my bloggy buds better! So, before I get to the other part of the post today, I'm going to give you a chance to follow me on all of my social media outlets. Everyone who follows me today will get the follow back! i'd LOVE to get to know you and you get to know me!

Scissors and a Whisk: Happies and Crappies Link Up

Stephanie and Sarah are launching this new Friday linky to share the highs (happies) and lows (crappies) of the week with each other! My family would do this around the dinner table a lot while I was growing up, and it's a fun way to reflect on the week! So here goes:
     1. Losing 5 more pounds- I'm almost to the 40 pound mark since I started losing weight this summer!
     2. Working over 20 hours last weekend- You read that right! between friday night, saturday, and sunday I worked over 20 hours. YAY FOR MONEY!
     3. News on the braces- I've had braces since I started college in 2008, and they are FINALLY coming off in March! I had an appointment with my orthodontist on Wednesday, and he gave the go-ahead!
     4. 3 sales this week- I sold 2 clothing items on eBay, and 1 on TPT. Not too shabby!
     5. Keeping up with my goal- I've been doing good making sure I spend time with the Lord every day, reading my chronological Bible and devo, and in prayer. Makes the whole day so much better!!
     6. Snuggle time- For some reason, my family dog, Sophie, has started to come sleep with me in my bed at night! It was so random- she scampered into my room one night this week, and hopped onto my bed, and snuggled with me all night. I didn't mind at all!! :)
     7. Boots- I got my boots this week! They fit and I LOVE THEM.  2 pairs- so happy!

     1. Burnt to a crisp-I got a really bad sunburn sunless tanning this week! they must have just changed the bulbs in the bed I was in, because I was only doing a level 1 and  my back is still hurting! OUCH.
     2. No hours- My schedule at work has gone WAYYYY down in hours now that shopping season is back to normal. Time to find a second job. :(
     3. Writers block- I've had zero inspiration for new products to make for my TPT store. I need some inspiration PRONTO. K? Thanks.
This was so very fun! But now it's time for me to get ready for my lunch date with my best friend! What a perfect Friday activity!
What are your happies and crappies this week?

  1. thanks for joining us this week. we really appreciate it! congrats on almost 40 lbs. that's seriously SO amazing. keep it up! and the news about the braces is great. i bet you'll be so happy about that.

    oh and for sunburn- buy apple cider vinegar and pour some on a wash rag and dab it onto your burns (or put it in a spray bottle). it works REALLY well at making sunburns go away faster and healing them.

  2. Yayyyy for the braces coming off in March!! Woohoo!!!!

  3. Here's adose of writing inspiration coming right at you!

    Feel it?

    Enjoy your week!
