five good things worth high fiving

It's another Friday and even though it was a short week for me, I was beyond ready. We are finishing up our anniversary celebrating this weekend (a date night is planned because how can you celebrate an anniversary without one?) and seeing at least one of the paternal men in my life. I still haven't bought them gifts. I am terrible.

Five things I love this week...

1) A working AC. Yes, it feels like it cost me a kidney and yes it broke two days after it was fixed (it was since fixed again) but a house with no AC in Houston is like a blogger abstaining from wine... you just can't live that way for very long!

Bauey approves.

2) Pink peonies. I know  I already mentioned them but they bloomed and they just make me so, so happy. Bauer tries to eat them, though. Not cool, kitty.

They are much brighter in person and already fluffier.

3) Tiff's Treats. If you aren't in Texas, you probably don't know what this is - it is a cookie delivery service. You call 'em up, place your order, and you (or the recipient of your choice) gets a box of cookies delivered to your door still warm. Yes, they are heavenly. I sent a few dozen to my husband because he was having a terrible day and he was the most-loved guy in the office for the rest of the afternoon.

4) Butterscotch Caramel K-Cups. Life changing.

via. Maybe it's just butterscotch? Either way, it's delicious.

5) Stila lipglosses. I had a groupon for Saks Off 5th that I had to use and I couldn't find anything to buy so it ended up being one of those trips where you buy stuff just to get it. I grabbed a pack of eight holiday-themed lip glosses for $20 and I love them. I never wear anything on my lips so it's a nice change. Plus, I shared a few with my coworkers so good karma points for the week, right?

sugar plum, jolly, and splendor

I was kind of in a funk last night and wasn't going to blog at all. I was on the "who cares about what I have to say?" train of thought. Anyone else get that way? But then I thought that if I can introduce just one more Texan to Tiff's Treats or anyone to that butterscotch coffee, then I am probably making the world a better place. Feel free to nominate me for the Nobel Prize or something :) I just wanted to focus on some simple things today. Not all weeks are going to make for an epic blog post and that's okay.

What are you loving this week?

  1. Oh yes, A/C in Houston anytime of year is pretty much mandatory. ESPECIALLY in June! Yikes! I've heard of Tiff's Treats but never actually ordered any! This may be in my near future :)

  2. That coffee seems RIGHT up my alley. I might have to pick some up.

    NO AC is not doable in summer.

  3. Cookie delivery service!! Where has this been all my life?! I wonder if anyone would judge me if I had some delivered to work - I would totally share lol!

    glad you blogged today, you totally changed my life. :)

  4. LOVE some AC. However, I'm thinking Alabama needs this cookie delivery service. What's better than a warm cookie delivered to your door? NOTHING! Thanks for linking up today! Have a great weekend!

  5. Those flowers are beautiful! and one of me faves! Have a great weekend

  6. haha 'is like a blogger abstaining from wine'... classic!

  7. Ohhh lawwwddd I can't imagine being AC-less! Glad it's working it!! Loved your comparison to a blogger without wine, made me laugh!!

    I've never had cookies delivered to me, what gives!? ;) I'm in a little town so... yeah. That'd be awesome though. I think our (only) cupcake shop should consider something similar.

  8. I've seen advertisements for Tiff's Treats, but never tried them. Maybe I should! And by the way, what a cute photo of your cat! I love when animals sprawl out on their backs like that!

  9. Cookie delivery service?! Whattttt? Sign me up!
    Thank you for linking up today! Xoxo

  10. I've never heard of the cookie delivery service! I'm amazed that they are delivered warm. That is a dream come true!
    My kitties eat flowers and plants too. I can never have them in the house. :( happy weekend!

  11. Those pink peonies are so gorgeous! I would love a vase of them right now!

  12. NO AC would be so hard! The coffee sounds yummy, I will have to see if I can find it next time I go grocery shopping, we love our coffee! Thank you for linking up with us!


I like comments and read them all but I'm not great about responding to them, so please don't be offended. I would much rather visit your blog instead!
