End of the Week Roundup

1. I ordered new glasses from Walmart last Wednesday and I was told it would take a week for them to get in. I was very surprised when two days later on Friday I got a call telling me my glasses were already in! Here is how the convo went with the Walmart eye care center rep:

Him- Hi Nicole, just calling to let you know your new glasses are in

Me- Already?!? I was told it would take a week! 

Him- Well if you'd like I can always call back in a week?

Me- Yes, make a note to call me Wednesday on the day you said it would originally be in. In fact, please put a note on the file stating to specifically tell me that they aren't in until next Wednesday, regardless of what happens. I'll be in tomorrow to meltdown in the middle of your showroom floor because you won't give me my glasses.
Him- Will do, I'll have my camera ready. 

2. I hate posting on Craigslist. I'm sorry, I know some of you swear by it, but I have never had a good experience with Craigslist. All it ends up doing is make me question my faith in humanity. Here is a tiny excerpt from one individual. The picture I'm about to present to you doesn't even cover a quarter of the emails I got before AND after my last email in this picture, it just gives you some insight on this particular person's complete oblivousness. They asked me at least three times before this email thread whether or not the love seat was still available and each time I responded that it was. Enjoy my suffering:

...and this particular person never got the hint. They asked me at least six more times if it was still available and whether or not a couch came with the love seat. It was awesome. 

3. Wednesday I hit two milestones for the blog. I hit 100 likes on Facebook AND 50 followers on bloglovin! Granted, they aren't HUGE numbers, but seeing my little blog grow is so exciting!

4. All I can say about this that great minds think a like, and no we didn't plan this one out...

And this, my friends, is why I love my girls....

5. Nibbler is my little heater hog. He always sits in front of the vents during the colder months. Here he is hogging up all the bathroom heat, enjoy my mini cartoon (and yes that is Squish's head you see in some of the shots, we were both watching Nibbler work his magic on the heater):

Linking up with Lauren, Lauren, and Lindsey!

  1. Love the new glasses. So cute! My husband always does all the listings on Craigslist. I could never deal with the insanity.

  2. Stopping by from Fab Friday's Link-up! Congrats on the numbers! Mine are small too, so I like to celebrate the small milestones too! And, your cat is so adorable.

  3. Cute new glasses!! My grandparents dog used to so that with the vents except they came up strait from the floor so she could cover the whole thing!!

  4. A great conversation about the glasses. More people need to have fun like that. And congrats on your blogging milestones.

    By the way, do you have a loveseat still available? Does it come with a sofa? Saw your ad on Craig's List...

    Visiting from the Northeast Bloggers weekend wander hop.

    1. Thanks P.J.! And thanks for stopping for the loveseat? The sofa actually grows from some magic beans that I can sell you....

  5. I LOVE those glasses on you!! You look amazing, like always! Hahaha... I've been looking on CL lately for jogging strollers... it's been... interesting! Oh well.

    We rarely use our heater but my Lucy LOVES it... we always joke that if she catches on fire she'll like it :)

    And your blog is AHHH-MAZING!!! Which is why we love you! I was thinking about starting a fan club...

    Happy Saturday (I'm always a day late and a dollar short lately!)

  6. Stopping by from the weekend wander hop - aw your kitties are so cute! That sucks you haven't have good experiences with craigslist, I've done pretty well with it so far!

    Undeniably, me

  7. Stopping by from H54F!

    Love the kitty pictures - I almost always include photos of my cat! Also, I was laughing at your craigslist debacle. I hope you don't have any more experiences like that.

    Congrats on the blog growth!

  8. Stopping by again from the NE Bloghop. I still love that blurb about bacon and fries.. Makes me laugh every time!

    I'm diggin the glasses, they look fantastic on you! I'm not a Craigslist fan, either, mainly because I have zero patience for stupidity. Here's the love seat, here's the picture, that's what I'm selling. If I had a sofa, I'd have the dang thing posted!

    Love your kitties. They remind me of my Princess Matzo Ball and Link. PMB is my heater hog!

    Happy weekend!

    1. Oh yeah, congrats on getting more readers! No matter how small, it's fun watching that number go up! And here's one more to add to your BlogLovin! ;-)

  9. Stopping by from Lauren's link up..
    I havent had great luck with craigslist either, but my husband swears by it. so I let him sell stuff and never bother to use it. I cant stand some of the creepy emails he gets. Your cats are ADORABLE!! too cute..


Comments make me happier than hearing bacon sizzling in a pan.

I always reply to comments, so if you don't hear from me personally that means you are a no reply blogger! Either update your blogger profile so I can share the love or leave me your email!
