Happies and Lows

Some of our couple friends like to call me and John the "Happy-Highs", instead of the "Sad-lows" (which is our last name).  I think it's cute and it always makes me smile :)

I decided to mix the 2 up a little, and do a post today on the "Happy and Lows" from the week so far! 
Maybe I'll make it a weekly thing???

First of all, 

HAPPY:
Ice cream date with hubs -- mine's on the right ;)



LOW:
The next day indulging in a Gigi's cupcake at work -- for those of you who aren't familiar with Gigi's, just imagine a GIANT cupcake, with equal amounts icing and cake.  I hear there are 780 calories in 1 cupcake. Did you get that -- 780!  It was happy at first, but about 5 minutes later, it was a major low.  I felt sick to my stomach, and had a big time sugar crash only a few hours into my shift.  WHOOPS!


HAPPY:
new purchases!  finally jumped on the NAKED train and got the #2 palette.  I love it so far!  
Plus, 2 dainty pairs of cute earrings :)  And they were just $1.50 each!



LOW:
Brrrrrr...temperatures here in NC dropped big time this week!  Just when I was getting all excited for spring and painting my nails seafoam green ;)   I really can't complain too much though, it's been a VERY mild winter  here.


HAPPY:
The way pretty stationary makes me feel -- I love it!  It makes me WANT to write cards for no reason.
(The one below is from the $1 bin at Michaels!)




LOW:
Finding out that my dear aunt had to have an extensive and invasive surgery (it lasted almost 8 hours!)  She is such an amazing and strong woman, and my heart ached for her as she had to go through that.


HAPPY:
The surgery went VERY well, and she will hopefully leaving the hospital Friday, after 1 week there.  Praise GOD for His mercy and healing.  


LOW:
I had a major "missing my family" moment this week.  It was my parent's anniversary and then my mom got really sick...I just wanted to BE there!  I wanted to celebrate the wonderful milestone over a fancy dinner, and then bring my mom soup and watch chick flicks together.  Sometimes it is VERY hard being so far away, and I really miss them so much. 


HAPPY:
Getting to babysit the sweetest little girl in the world -- a dear friend of mine's niece.  We had the best time ever and she is my new best friend.  Yes, she is 2 years old, but still.



And I have to end on another HAPPY!
I leave tomorrow for NASHVILLE!  I will get to see some of my very best friends, help host an incredible baby shower, visit with my sweet family there, and love on my beautiful nieces.  I am so excited!!

Nashville!
