What’s up, weekend 1/5

– Posted in: featured

FRIDAY, you guys. And what a long, strange week it’s been, eh? First, we’re recovering from the New Year, then we’re prepping for a bomb cyclone. There were many fun moments in between, so let’s take a moment to give gratitude. As a reminder, please don’t forget to follow and like my sistahs from other mistahs, Lindsay and Beth, who now has an entirely new blog look! Isn’t that fun when that happens?

Note to self: give the ol’ blog a makeover already. It’s on my list for the year!

Let’s jump in today. There’s much—as always—to be grateful for.

Being a giant bum in an oversized sweatshirt 90% of the week (it’s not how I typically like to roll, but well, single digit temps happened and my nose hasn’t stopped leaking since Monday)

Bryan’s cousin’s daughter saying we are her favorite aunt and uncle and my heart melting in a puddle on the floor <3 <3 <3

Obsessing over homes again… in a good way! I’m excited to head back out there to resume our search

My new crockpot and my first dinner—a vegetarian chili

Signing up for my first online email marketing course—and having my boss pay the expenses

The WTForecast app—the only weather app I trust 🙂
Sweet text messages with a friend who needed a friend

Episode one of Black Mirror. What. The. Holy. Fuck. But it was good, so I’ll continue watching.

Finding a Best Buy gift card with $22 left! What should I buy? I’m thinking music. Suggestions?

Snuggles with this one.

WooHoo on finding the gift card with a balance still on it!! It’s like hitting the lottery! Good luck with the home search.

I just downloaded the weather app 🙂 I see everyone screen capping it but never knew what it was.

I constantly have tears streaming down my face from the wind and cold. I feel like I have to assure everyone I’m not crying.

For What It’s Worth

Aww, thanks for the sweet shout out my dear! Yay for found money on a gift card! I have no idea what music is out right now! I’m a little behind on my pop culture, lol. Oversized sweatshirts are my jam. I wish they were acceptable work attire! I want to cuddle with Buster too. Give him an extra nuzzle for me, ok? Love you lady! Stay warm! XOXO

Oh, how I love gift cards with a balance … haha… it’s like finding cash in your pocket!

I also love my crockpot! Haven’t used it much so thanks for the reminder to get it out and cook something warm and soothing!

Omg, Buster. What a cute photo! Ooh I love finding gift cards I forgot about. Hmmm…I don’t know what all music you like, but I’m LOVING Dua Lipa these days if you want to check her out.

Charlotte you crack me up! It’s, um, also very cold here in Pittsburgh. Our low tomorrow night is -3! Thankfully the arctic freeze should be over soon. We are hunkering down in sweatshirts too. We still have snow on the ground and on the deck. Our dog is peeing in the snow on the deck like 2 feet away from the door! Ha!

House hunting is so fun! Stressful but exciting and fun!

I’ve been really proud of myself for wearing cozy yet professional clothes to work all week, and so I’m mildly disappointed that the weekend is here and while I can wear my cozy sweatshirt, it’s supposed to warm up to unseasonable temperatures… and then plummeting again for Monday.
And the cousin-niece comment? The best.

Definitely music with the giftcard. And that app?!?! I need it. That’s hilarious! I keep seeing things about Black Mirror, so now I have to watch too. Have a fab weekend! XXXOOO

I’ve been a complete bum this week, too. I just can’t when it’s so cold outside, ha ha.

Yes, buy some music for your itunes library. 🙂 I used ot use a crock pot when my kids were little. It came in soooo handy. It’s so dark and rainy here all week. Blah. What is this new show? I must check it out! Have a great weekend! And let us know how you like the email marketing course.

Jessica Bradshaw January 5, 2018, 10:55 PM

Oh my gosh. I love WTForcast. bum weeks are the best when they are scattered in for sure. I just love reading everyone’s grattitude posts.

Anthea January 6, 2018, 3:27 AM

Yay for finding a gift card with a balance still on it 🙂 Always a nice surprise!
House hunting can be so much fun – good luck and enjoy it!
How cute is Buster in the pic 🙂

WTForecast is the greatest! I turned the profanity off on mine (for a minute) and got a blank screen! LMAO! It’s like it had nothing to say.
Blog makeovers are always fun – it’s about time for me to do one, too.

The WTForecast cracks me up every time. I recently downloaded it too and it’s way too funny! We are having the opposite problem here — it’s way too hot! And I usually love summer.

Good luck with house hunting! Pet cuddles are the best.

Athena does that same face hiding thing. I love it!
Good luck with the home search! It’s always good to get back out there. 2018 seems like the year, right?

Lindsay January 11, 2018, 3:41 PM

Oh my gosh I’m melting at the picture of Buster. He looks how I felt or at least how I wanted to be last weekend – hiding from the cold. Now we’re up in the positives today and we’re supposed to dip down twenty degrees. This weather is insane!!

Good luck with your house hunting sweets. I know this is the year you’ll find something that’s perfect for you guys. 🙂

WTForecast is a riot, isn’t it? I chuckled when I first saw your photo. LOL.

I hope you’ve been having a good week lovey. xoxoxox
