Oh, Hey Friday {2.6.15}

So, I totally didn’t mean to skip posting all week… but I did. It was a bit of a crazy one for us and there was just no time to blog. It happens, right? Darn life, always getting in the way. Anyway, I’m keeping it simple today but doing one of my favorite linkups – here’s my five!


So, the highlight of our week was buying our first new appliance for our house…because our dryer died. I did laundry Friday night and the dryer wouldn’t start, so that was fun. It was a really old dryer that came with the house, so we opeted to replace it. Here’s where I felt like a moron… I thought we had a gas dryer. We have a gas water heater, stove, and heating system, so I thought we had a gas dryer too. We went out Saturday and picked out a gas dryer that would be installed on Tuesday. Monday night, something told me to google it and double check that ours was gas, and as I’m sure you saw coming, it was electric. Of course. Thankfully I was able to cancel the order before it was delivered and installed and went to pick out a new one. The plus side is that electric dryers are cheaper, so I was able to pick a nicer one than I originally had.  Of course, now I’m wishing I had the matching washer (even though that’s working fine), and I want to do laundry all the time just so I can use it. Anyone else get like this?

I have been having an AMAZING weight loss week. Seriously. I’ve earned back every weekly point I spent, and I feel fantastic. Plus, yesterday a coworker told me I look skinny and it pretty much made my day. I hope this streak continues and I’m so excited to weigh in tomorrow at Weight Watchers and see how I did!


I have to brag on Stitch Fix for a second. Remember those green cords I got a few fixes ago? Well, as a result of my weight loss streak (I seriously hope I haven’t jinxed it by talking about it so much), those cords are now too big for me! I took them out to get them hemmed and realized it pretty quickly. A quick email to customer service, and I have an exchange heading my way in the next size down! They should arrive today, AND I get my box today… I’m going to be pretty happy when I get home from work!

I recently signed up for Unroll.me and I can’t even tell you how much it’s helped me. Now all those promo emails come to me in one compilation and it’s SO much easier to manage my email. I was skeptical, but it’s really helped me a lot… and it’s free! Sign up here if you’re interested!


 I don’t really have a five today. Have a wonderful fun-filled weekend! It’s supposed to get in the 50s here so I’m hoping we get some outside time!  Happy Friday!

  1. WOOOOT WOOOT to your weight loss streak!! Way to go, Jess! I will definitely have to check out Unroll me because my email is out of control with the junk. Thanks for the tip. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Yay for you with the weight loss! I’m headed in the other direction currently as I’ve perfected making homemade pizza crust, and we’ve been making and baking pizzas 1-2x a week!! Delicious and my kind of good, but I overindulge. My husband and I have been trying to start the Whole30, modified a tiny bit but clean eating still. I love to do laundry! Even the folding doesn’t bother me. I have a gas dryer, and it was pricy. Have a good weekend! Susan
