A Whole Bunch of Happies!

 (Duh, right?!)

It's amazing how it makes you feel to just get things off your chest.

After I put my post up yesterday, things really started turning around, not to mention your uplifting comments started pouring in and making me feel so warm and fuzzy.


I got my car back yesterday, nothing was wrong with it, and the guy didn't even charge me to look at it. There are nice people in this world.

My computer just had a moment of stupidness and is working fine now.

Some of my project is done, and I think it's going to be really great.

Yea, things started looking up yesterday. I knew they would, but I was just really dragging for a while. Thank you again for all your love. It rocks my world!

Now, how about some happy things from the weekend, and just happy things in general?


1. Getting this card in the mail from sweet Rasha.

2. This weekend will end my summer semester. Can I get an amen?!

3. Love from fellow bloggers.

Tarver at The Sweet Silver Lining said the sweetest, kindest things about me on her blog a couple days ago. Thank you so much, lady!

Trishy sent me this perfume ad last week. It's so me! Thank you, honey!

Sami at Savannah Steele Magnolia emailed this picture to me when we found out about my aunt's cancer.

"May the sun shine bright on your window pane
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain
May the hand of a friend always be near,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer." 

 4. My dad got to go to the PGA Tournament at the Greenbrier this weekend. I was so excited for him.

5. I got belated packages together for a friend.

6. I ended up painting my nails twice. I like change.

Sally Hansen Romantic Rose with pink sparkly over it.

Sally Hansen Platinum

7. I found some fabulous things on Saturday while helping the economy.

Owl notepad, stickies and pen from TJ Maxx
Blue Frost nail polish

Jessica Simpson Fancy perfume

Betseyville Hipster by Betsey Johnson, $23 at Ross!

8. I wore this shirt (purchased from an NYC street vendor) to the movie night at the school where I work. See my elephant, Sum??

Strawberry fields forever...

 9. I'm really getting into this silly band trend. Hey, if SJP wears 'em, they must be cool, right?

10. The 'Embrace Your Flaws Campaign' is making me so happy! Go over to Rasha's for more info!

11. My mom gave me this darling Dior clutch. It's 'old as the hills' as she put it, and she hadn't used it in a while. Now it's mine! Yay!


OOTD from Sunday:

Karen Kane Top, J. Crew Skirt, Vintage clutch gifted to me by a lady at my church
