Things Making Me Happy

I've been slacking the past few days on blogging. I just haven't been motivated to turn the computer on lately. But I have a few things I really wanted to blog about because they are making me incredibly happy.
  • Some of you may know that my family had a huge garage sale this past Friday and Saturday. We made almost $700!! It was a huge success and we got rid of a good portion of all we had. With that being said, my "shop my closet" sales on here, Tradesy, Threadflip, and Tracey's Closet are all closed because the clothes have all been purchased. We spent 6:30-5:00 out in the sun each day. We pigged out on Starbucks, Moka, Costco muffins, Jimmy John's, & Chipotle throughout the course of those two days. I'm slightly sunburned. But it was so worth it!
  • My sister & I are throwing a pizza party for our nanny kids today. They are so excited and so am I.
  •  I didn't watch the Teen Choice Awards last night, but I checked Twitter after the show last night & I read a tweet about Lea Michele's acceptance speech & I instantly YouTube-d the video. I am amazed at the strength this lady is able to show amidst tragedy. That she consistently goes out of her way to comfort others during the past few weeks is astounding. I bawled like a baby with practically everyone else who saw this speech.

  • My first monthly sponsor giveaway will go live on Thursday! There's some pretty great prizes, so you don't want to miss out!

  1. I had tears in my eyes watching Lea... Not sure I could have done that..

  2. I've been feeling the same way you have about wanting to turn the computer off... just want to squeeze the most out of my summer that I can! xo

  3. Nice job on the garage sale! That is awesome!! And Lea Michele's speech totally made me cry.

  4. Congrats on the successful garage sale. I need to do something similar to purge all the things I've accumulated over the years.

    You have a lovely blog.
