Highs and Lows

Today I’m participating in a brand-spankin’-new link party! The very talented Jen at Life, Crafts and Whatever has started a great party to share the week’s highs and lows.

  • I won Junk to Joy’s Spring Delights Giveaway! I never win anything, so I was jumping around screaming…actually I was at work, so I just did a couple chair spins to celebrate instead.
  • I finally finished painting/stenciling/antiquing the tray that’s been haunting me for weeks. And it turned out suh-weet if I do say so myself.
  • I got a Welcome to the Neighborhood package in the mail with gift certificates to local restaurants and shops, including one for a free 30 minute massage. Yippee!
  • I finally got to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. I.LOVE.HP.
  • Two Words: Playoff Hockey! Wednesday I went to Game 4 of Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoffs!

  • The Coyotes lost the game and were swept in the first round. And the team doesn’t have a deal with a new owner yet, so that could have been the last game they ever play in Phoenix. Lame!
  • I found out the hard way I’m allergic to the weeds around my pool. I pulled weeds for an hour yesterday and spent the rest of the night sneezing and debating scratching my eyes out with a fork. Oh, and I got a sweet rash on my arm. AND I still have a ridiculous amount left in my yard. Insider tip: Buy stock in Benadryl.
  • On Tuesday some dick scheduled a meeting during lunch, so I had to eat later at my desk by myself instead of with my boyfriend and friends. I have that time blocked out on my calendar for a reason! Respect the recurring 11:00 – 11:30 lunch meeting!
  • I wanted to extreme coupon a few free items this week, but when I went to the store all the items were sold out. Damn your stockpiles! I just wanted one body wash…sheesh!
  • My face is breaking out! Ugh…pizza face!

What were your highs and lows for the week?


  1. Thank you for playing along!

    I totally get excited when I win a giveaway. Now if those darn Silhouette giveaways would stop being mean to me...

    And I'm allergic to weeds too. Or is it the hard work? I dunno. I whine so much when I have to pull weeds that my mom comes and pulls them for me. She's Mrs Green Thumb, meanwhile I can't keep a cactus alive.

    Enjoy that massage!

  2. Awww the chair spins sound adorable!

  3. How awesome about the give away! Enjoy the massage! Sorry bout the rash!!!!

  4. I have pizza face this week too! lol...I blame it on the PMS and chocolate...lol...

    I wonder what weeds those are...one in my yard make me itch crazy too...it's really prickly...

  5. I'm reading through your list and you're cracking me up! I totally feel you on, ummm, all of the above. ;) Congrats on winning the giveaway! I've entered tons of them and have yet to win one. There's one in particular I'm hoping to win this week, so fingers crossed that this is my time to shine!

    I'm your newest follower! Feel free to stop by sometime and visit, as well. :)
