Happy Friday: May 6

Happy Friday, you guys! Sometimes I have a hard time with these posts because I feel like they're fake. I don't want it to seem like I think like is all rainbows and butterflies. I've never wanted to be the blogger who paints an unreal picture of life. Sometimes, life sucks. And for no good reason. Nothing happens.

And that's exactly what's going on this week.

This week was a hot mess. I've been terrible about everything. I haven't eaten all that well (I've only cooked one meal). I ignored my to-do list. I haven't felt well (probably from the crappy eating). I haven't slept well.

There isn't really one extremely bad thing that happened. Nothing dramatic. It's just life. Everything just feels out of sorts. And I hate weeks like this. It's overwhelming and it makes me feel pretty crappy about everything.

I think some of it is because we were gone all weekend. And it's also because Mr. T is so busy with commencement and end of the year stuff. So everything is thrown off and I've let myself get too lazy about stuff. But, for real, I hate weeks like this.

But, I don't want to beat myself up. This stuff isn't that bad. And there's good stuff. Seriously, it's not worth beating myself up over. Coincidentally, this is why I started Happy Fridays. So I can remind myself of the good stuff.

And looking back in my pictures there's actually quite a few awesome moments.


I had tea time with Mr. T. Now that Mr. T works outside the home, we rarely ever have tea time. But the other day, he had a couple hours free before an event so he came home. We made some tea, ate some Twix, and watched People's Court. I don't care how dorky it is, it was the best ever.


We tried to get an ussie (that's what it's called still, right?) during tea time. Brooklyn wasn't as excited as we were. Or , I guess, maybe she was too excited.


I made this card. And I'm pretty proud of it. It's lists in my Etsy store so go buy it! OK?


I made cheddar jalapeño cornbread muffins. And they're amazing (recipe coming to the blog soon). I actually decided to whip up a little pot of chili for dinner to go with them. And, since Mr. T will be gone, I get to eat it all myself. If that doesn't make my week awesome then I don't even know what to do with myself.

How was your week? Tell me about what made you happy this week!
