Happies & Crappies – Link up!


The Vintage Modern Wife: Happies and Crappies Link Up


  1. We have finally found a place to move into! We are going to be renting a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom house and we will be moving in on the 15th! I can’t wait!
  2. This week I have decided to start working on my dreams. ย I have always put others in front of myself. ย I want to start achieving what I want in life. ย It starts here! ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Ellie Mae is such a GREAT puppy. ย She is incredibly smart and is impressing me each and every day! (Look for an update post of her coming soon!)


  1. I can’t decide if I want to take a class this fall. ย Part of me wants to, but the other part of me is saying helllssss no, no more school!
  2. In the process of finding a place to live, I have been living back at home with my mom and sis. ย It’s great because my sister and I are becoming closer (she is 8 years younger than me) but I remember why I was so happy to not live at home when I moved out to go to college. ย I need my own space! GLAD we finally found a place!

  • woohoo for putting yourself first girl ๐Ÿ™‚ we are looking for a place to rent or rent to own right now and it’s not going so well ๐Ÿ™ glad you found your place!

    • Thanks! Yeah, it’s really is a downer when it takes SO long to find a place! We have been looking since may and finally found something so I am glad that stress is no longer there! Hopefully you guys find something soon! Try talking to realty places or check on craigslist!

  • “This week I have decided to start working on my dreams. I have always put others in front of myself. I want to start achieving what I want in life. ” <– this is a must! in the end, the only one to look out for you is YOU!

    • I agree! Although I do believe in always being there for those that I love! I always try to help make others dreams come true, but now it’s just time to put a little more focus on my own!

  • So happy you’ve found a place you love. Your happies are great! Sometimes you need to put yourself first, not all the time otherwise that would make you a thoroughly selfish person. Your crappies don’t sound too bad. Happy Friday!

    • I completely agree with you! You can’t ALWAYS put yourself first but it is good to increase the focus on yourself more then none at all. I know my crappies aren’t that bad, they could definitely be worse!

  • Congrats on your move and deciding to follow your dreams! ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s so exciting. Oh, and Happy Friday too!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you so much! Happy Friday to you too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I always put others before myself too, i need to work on that also!! Awesome about the new place!

    • Thank you! and yes, it is something I need to work on!

  • Congrats on finding the perfect place! It’s so hard looking for houses/apartments…and so stressful! Glad you got it worked out ๐Ÿ™‚ Stopping by from the happies and crappies link up!

    • Thank you so much! It most definitely stressful trying to find a place! Have a great weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Congratulations on the new place! I hope moving goes smoothly…we just moved twice in a year!

    • Thank you! I hope moving goes smoothly too! Right now all of our stuff is pretty much in storage so it shouldn’t be TOO bad! Twice in one year?! Yikes…seems like it could be stressful yet exciting as well!

  • Congratulations on the move & awesome attitude about following your dreams! As for the crappie…I say take that class! Since you have a slight urge to want to take it then you should! You could learn a whole ton and it could lead you to follow a dream you never even imagined. Go for it girl!

    • Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a little bit to make my decision so I’ll keep what you said in mind!

  • So happy I found your blog – it’s soooo good I’m definitely going to look around for tips on how to improve mine ๐Ÿ™‚

    <3, Charlotte

    • Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know if you have any questions!
