I had these amazing plans for my blog this week and let me tell you, it’s all gone to shit. Do you ever have one of those weeks that you’re just not feelin’ it? I’m having one of those years, it seems. We’ve been nothing but sick,all year. We’ve dealt with sickness after sickness.. and drama after drama… and i’m. so. over. it. ooooooooooooover it. 

 

So, Things I DON’T love Thursday. 

 

1. Ringworm, Stomach bugs, Coughs, Sniffles, Colds, and other bad germies. 

Let’s first talk about how ringworm is a common thing. I’ve never had to deal with it until now. It’s been HELL to get rid of. We have a bad case of the stomach bug going around (so far, only I’ve gotten it. Yayyyy me…) and Chanel is STILL coughing and has been for a month. I’ve taken her in to the doctor and they’ve just put her on 2 allergy medicines (seriously, guys, she’s taking after me a little too much.) I’m pretty much just over sickness. I’m done with it. 

 

2. Dramatic Friendships.

You guys remember when I mentioned my friend that like dropped off the face of the planet? Well, that came up in my life again today…. With a buttload more drama. I’m fine with not wanting to be friends with someone, what I’m not fine with is dropping off the face of the planet and leaving someone else to clean up your mess. Seriously. You’re older than I am, own up to your crap. I shouldn’t have to be getting phone calls asking if I know where you are because you apparently owe people money or you *gasp* stopped talking to someone. Ugh. Also, clearly if our friendship isn’t worth the time it takes to call me up and say, “Hey, I’m going to move to a different state. Let’s hang out before I go!” then, I’m obviously better off. BUT DO YOU EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW UPSETTING THAT IS? I went from being a best friend to nothing. Who does that? 

 

3. Having to overly explain myself. 

Is this just me? Do you hate having to explain something, and explain something, and explain something until you want to scream? That’s what my life has been like that last week. 

 

4. Unanswered Questions and Stress 

The worst part about this one is I can’t fully explain it yet. I swearrrrrrr I will. I promise. I have things to tell you guys. It’ll be this month. But, i have to wait for something to be resolved before I can announce anything. (Again, no, I’m not pregnant. Don’t ask. I can’t have more babies. We all should know this by now.) But, I’m over the stress of it all, I really am. I need some mellow vibes in my life, that’s for dang sure. 

 

There you have it. My things I don’t love this week. I hope you’re having a better week than I am! Let me know by linking up below and leave me some comment love!

So, last week I was supposed to meet up with Kimi. We got sick and had to stay home and it was the worst! I seriously slept for about 20 hours trying to get rid of whatever bug we had. There aren’t words for how terrible it was. Anyway, we have a fancy new header and button! How fun is that?

Things I’m loving this week:

Did you know that this weekend is Pokemon Day? It sure is! The 27th! I’m so stinkin’ excited.

How adorable is this dress?

Or this blanket?

I’ll let you in on a little secret – Hot Topic is having a store-wide sale on POKEMON DAY! Everything online (INCLUDING CLEARANCE!) is going to be an additional 20% off.

I’ll be buying this for sure:

because I obviously -NEED- a Pikachu hoodie. I need it. That’s all there is to it!

If you’re an iPhone user there is an app in the App Store called Pokemon Photo Booth for some added Pokemon fun! Don’t worry fellow Android users, it’s coming soon for us!

And of course there are going to be fun events at participating stores like GameStop and Toys’R’Us. I’m pretty dang excited!

Are you doing anything fun this weekend?

How is it already February? I don’t understand it at all. I’m not ready. I’m not ready for anything related to February. On one hand, I want time to speed up and on the other.. I’d like for it to slow down. You know what I mean?? I’ve had a UTI and now I have some gross mucus-y cough thing. It’s been horrible. I’m pushing through it though.

 

Things I’m absolutely loving this week

 

My Charlie makes that same high-pitched sound.  It’s cute.

 

 

Way Back Den Pillowcase Set

Of course I’m in love with these. Aren’t they so sweet? I love the tail so much.


Sweetest Setting Garland

I’ve never been big on decorating for Valentine’s Day but I could get behind something simple and sweet like this.


Heart-Cover Copy Cardigan


LetGÇÖs Walk About Love Sneaker

Maybe I’ll even get a little crazy and wear something Valentine’s Day-y?? Who knows! I’ve done stranger things!

 

What are YOU loving this week?

Today is a special day around my house. Trowa turns 5 today! Can you believe that? Five years ago I was in the hospital, waiting to hold my last child. He was born three weeks early, weighed 7lbs 7oz and was 19 inches long. Can you image if he would have been full term? He would have been ginormous. Seriously. So, here are some baby pictures for everyone to enjoy.

He was a cute little thing. Now he’s into these kinds of things:

71Cc2wL4bCL._SL1500_

Yo-kai watch. He’s utterly obsessed with it. His party isn’t until Saturday and I told him that I couldn’t find it in any store. He’s going to be so excited when he opens it!

 

 

Things I don’t love this week:

My account got hacked. Someone tried to charge a thousand dollars to my account and I’ve been so stressed out about it. It’s all okay. Everything is getting refunded or was declined and they’re sending me out a new card. But it’s still so stressful. I’m just ready for it all to be over with and to have access to my bank account again. Ugh. What a mess!

 

So, this is going to be a short TILT post. I’ve been crazy busy and just really am ready for the weekend. Let me know what you love this week in the comments below and be sure to link up with us. If you haven’t already entered this awesome giveaway, be sure that you do!

I got up this morning with ideas of what i was going to post for Things I Love Thursday and then I found out that Alan Rickman passed away. This week has been so hard! First we had Bowie pass away, at the age of 69, from cancer. And now my dear Potions professor, at the age of 69, from cancer.

So, I’m going to share some of my favorite Alan Rickman things:

because, I have to get you right in the feels…

Rest in Peace my dear Professor Snape. You taught us about potions, dark arts, unbreakable vows, how to control our emotions, and that love can last a life time. Always.

I’m deeply saddened that you didn’t make it to 80 and get to tell you family this. But, somehow I think that you did this anyway. You were an amazing actor and I know that you had a great love of the Harry Potter books. I’m glad that I got to grow up with the books and movies and that my childhood was influnenced by such amazing actors and actresses and an amazing writer. Thank you for being my Professor Snape, my Blue Caterpillar,  my Marvin, my Judge Turpin, and so many other great characters.

Now that we’re all crying. Here is the video that makes me laugh –

Hello, 2016! I’ve already had a great start to 2016. I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun this last week has been. I am going over my reader survey (which you can still fill out here!) and I have to tell you guys that I love you all so much! I love reading your comments on the survey. I really got to a point in blogging where I didn’t think that people even enjoyed reading my posts and to find out that there are so many of you that have been sad that I haven’t been posting as much… it really made my day and gave me so much desire to get back into writing. So, I apologize for being MIA and I am really going to get back into it, I swear. PLUS I have exciting things going on in my life again (work, boyfriend, children that say the most amazing things, and of course Star Wars). I’ll be sure to keep my blog more up-to-date and I think now that I’m not in my depressive funk, I think it’ll be easier for me to write.

 

Let’s get started, shall we?

 

I love the beginning of the year because it means there are new planners out. I love and adore stationary and planners… so it makes me giddy. I recently picked up this beauty from Target and I’m currently making it mine.

The picture doesn’t do it justice – the light brown henna design is actually copper. It’s beautiful. I’m so in love with it.

 

Of course because it’s the new year, I also decided I need new pens (to add to my million other pens….) and got these:

 

Because, I love pens… and pencils. It goes along with my obsession of snail mail. I love writing. Is that a weird thing? Hmm…

 

The only downfall to the new year so far is that I have a cold sore. I used to get them when I was little, I think. I can’t remember but I haven’t had one …. in as long as I can remember. And my lip is huge and swollen and it’s seriously so unattractive. So, I’m trying this out to see if it’s as magical as it is claiming to be.

It’s supposed to get rid of the cold sore in a single dose. So, I’ll let you know if it really works… I have my doubts. It does feel better so far though, so maybe that’s a good sign? I don’t know. I’m actually just mortified that I have a cold sore. My mom said I used to get them all the time when I was little, whenever the weather would change. I just haven’t had one in about 20 years. (Wow, that makes me feel old saying that.) So, if you need me, I’ll be the one with the paper bag over my face until my hideous cold sore goes away.

 

What have you done so far this year? What is your favorite part of it being a new year? How many times have you written 2015 instead of 2016?? Let me know in the comments and join us for the link up!

So, I had this entire post planned out and it just  has been one of those days. It’s been a little crazy around here, we’re getting over strep and I’m working on a website in my spare time — on top of Girl Scouts, Cheaha Soaps, and childrearing. I’m literally exhausted all the time. I can’t. So…. Cheer me up by adding your link below so I can see what things you’re loving this week, because I’m seriously lacking over here!

 

I’m patiently waiting for these to come in the mail.

Butta USB handwarmers

And I’m dreaming of these beautiful things from ModCloth. Does anyone else feel like Modcloth is what they’d be if they were a store? Because, I feel like that about ModCloth. It’s full of so many cute things.

 

 


Redeem Come True Battery Pack in Lightsaber


Because You’re Earth It Lamp


Forage for Sweets Sugar Bowl


Walk on the Wily Side Mug


Walk on the Wily Side Flask

Stop over by Kimi’s blog and give her some extra love. I know she could really use it right now. <3

If you haven’t already signed up to do a card swap with me — go here now. I love sending (and receiving!) snail mail! This week has been crazy. I’ve started working on a website for my church. So, I’m going to be busy, busy, busy! You might see a little less of me around the blogging world, but probably not too much less. I love my blog and can never stay away from it for very long. I was talking to Kimi yesterday about this post and we both had the same idea. Christmas Wish List! Yay! I love Christmas! I don’t ever get a lot for Christmas…. Being single, and a mom generally means that I always tell people to get more stuff for my kids and not to worry about me.

Music


Check Your Vinyl Signs Turntable in Crimson

The main thing I want this year (other than a new phone…) is a record player. I don’t know where I’ll put it but I want one. A lots of vinyl to go along with it! It makes my heart swoon!

 

Books

16326987
Coloring Books <3
50032634
Planner <3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a gift card to Books A Million and maybe a coffee shop.

 

I’m a simple girl. I like simple things. I just want to listen to music, read, and drink coffee. And watch Star Wars. That’s all.

 

 

What are you loving this week??

This week I’m going to write about what I’m thankful for in a short and sweet little post.

 

I’m thankful for:

  • My Family – most of all my children. It might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done but each and every day, I’m thankful that they’re mine.
  • The chance to be around my family. For about 6 or so years, I didn’t live by my parents. It was really hard and I’m glad that I get to be close to them now.
  • My new friends. I hated Alabama for a long time. I’ve made some really amazing friends and that’s made a world of difference. I actually enjoy being here.
  • I’m thankful that I get to write and pursue my dreams. I have an etsy shop that is doing amazingly well, I have a blog that is doing great. These are things that I never thought I would accomplish simply because I’ve never been given the opportunity to actually pursue those dreams. I still want to write a book, and maybe someday I will. But for now, I have my blog and that’s more than enough. I always have wanted to make soap and have a shop with my mom. We’re half way there. Maybe someday we’ll be able to actually have a store front that it just filled with our soaps and bath products. But for now we have etsy and local markets and we’re doing so well. So I’m thankful and happy.
  • I’m thankful for my reader. Yes, all of them… even the ones that leave me mean comments. I read every single comment I get. I know who my regular readers are and I know who my trolls are. I’m thankful that I’m at a point in blogging where it doesn’t upset me as much to get a mean comment. I’m also thankful that despite the mean comments I’m flooded with nice things by my regular readers! Seriously, without you guys, my blog would be nothing. I’m planning on writing a lot more. Things in my life have calmed down. You’re awesome and I love you!
  • I’m thankful for Social Media. I know, crazy, huh? I love instagram. I don’t know what I’d do without it. Plus, I’ve met some really awesome people because of social media. So, yay!

 

 

That’s my short and sweet list. You can add your thankful list OR your TILT post below!

[inlinkz_linkup id=584959 mode=1]

 

My Etsy Shop is having a black friday sale. You can stop by and look around, if you’re wanting to try natural, homemade soaps!

We’re going to just jump right into things I love this week because I’m tired and grumpy and I stayed up way too late talking on the phone and then I had children waking me up a bunch of times last night. *grumpy mama*

 

So, it’s no secret that I love and adore Star Wars. This skirt is my dream skirt. Fun fact about Star Wars Light Sabers, did you know that Samuel L. Jackson wanted to be able to find himself in the movie easily so he requested to have a purple light saber. Which, I think, is hilarious and awesome.

 

In keeping with my Star Wars obsessed theme… Look at this sweater! EEK! I need it so much! Thank you Target for being so nerdy and selling the perfect sweater. Also, I recently got a Target Red Card — the debit card. So, I still am getting 5% off my total purchase. I really am obsessed with Target.
Saber Every Drop Mug

How adorable is this mug? I think I just need to see the new Star Wars movie like, right now.

 

For those bloggers still trying to figure out how make money with their blog (aren’t we all?) head over to Kimi Who for another great post on affiliate links! I personally use shareasale, target, cj affiliate, and Affiliate Window for my affiliate links. She does such a great job explain how to use them to your advantage.

Blogger of the Week

 Hi there! I am a blogging student who lives in Vancouver, BC with her boyfriend and her cat, Littlefoot. I guess I fall under the lifestyle blog category since I like to write about family, travel, product reviews, and so much more!

So, Jessica just started linking up with us and she had the cutest little fox scarf that I, of course, loved! You can find her blog here – Jessica Takes On The World 
Stop over and say hey!
