3 Link-ups for Thursday

Too many link-ups, too little time.

1.  Kate @Daffodils, a fellow Army wife, is hosting an Appetizer Link-Up.  Why, I eat appetizers in place of meals!  So I thought I'd join on up.

This is my go-to appetizer when I need to take something or when I'm having people over (let's just pretend...) There's a reason that I don't make it for just myself..

Jalapeño Popper Dip.  

It's OK...

Its Ok Thursdays

It's okay to just give up and sleep underneath the nest of clean clothing on your bed.  (I'd include a picture, but that'd just be embarrassing.  For my mom.  Not for me.)

It's okay that I'm having a crappy week and that's just the way it is.

It's okay to be horrified that Facebook "friends" think it's appropriate to tell the world when they'll be trying to have a baby.   Note:  Your FB wall isn't a private conversation.  I don't want to see that stuff.


It's okay that I unfollow whiners.  "Really?  Your boyfriend has been gone for 2 weeks?!  Whatever shall you do with yourself..."  I don't need to see that stuff either.

Glad you're on my side, Jason..
Thankful Thursday at The Ramblings of Mrs. Hargraves.

I'm thankful that it. is. AUGUST.
I'm thankful Danskos are coming back into season since fall is fast approaching.  Saw some at the checkout in Fred Meyer yesterday!  Why am I thankful for this?  I get a little chuckle out of it every time I see someone wearing those dumb shoes.
Since this is a long, crappy week, let's just say that I'm thankful I'm not a Hatfield or a McCoy.  I've been reading The Coffin Quilt.

I'm thankful I made it to August without buying new clothes.  Yes, it was two whole weeks.  I shall celebrate by buying new clothes. 'Twill be a busy weekend.


  1. Sorry you are having a rough week! Hope it starts looking up soon. Thanks for linking up (I added the thumbnail to my page for you!)

  2. I love the smell of clean laundry. Now if there was only a way to get clean laundry without having to wash the clothes myself...maybe I need a maid? Yes, that's what I need :)

  3. I have never seen that shoe in my entire life. And I cannot unsee it. I don't think I can forgive you yet.

    Did your package arrive yet?! The PO on base is notoriously slow. :(

  4. Um, yes, on the facebook thing. Totally agree.

  5. I hope that this coming week is a better one Kristin! :)


Comments make my day!
