What's Hap-"pinning" Wednesday

Happy Hump Day dolls! Hope you've had a wonderful last few days and a great weekend.  You know what today is and the rules, so come play along..... :)

Whew, I feel like I've been away from the bloggy world forever, but it's actually only been a few days. And a LOT has happened over the last few days, so let me fill you in. :)

*Friday* - went to work like normal. About 2:30 was pulled into the office and informed that as of March 31st my job would be dissolved and I would need to find another position between now and then. They are letting me interview and/or job hunt however necessary so that I'm able to have secured another position before the end of March. Ironically enough, I had already started looking because after being in the legal field as a paralegal for over 18 years, and only being in banking for a little over a year, I have decided that I HATE banking, so I'm good going back to my old roots even if it means driving back downtown to Houston. However, some changes are possibly coming that would have made us leave this job in the very near future anyway, so again, it's a Win/Win for me. 

*Saturday* - got up early and drove to Arkansas for the long weekend.  Got to brother-in-law's early afternoon in Little Rock, unloaded trailer and headed to Fort Smith to visit with my in-laws.  Mr. A and I stopped off at the Texas Roadhouse and had dinner, just the two of us for Valentine's. Afterwards, we got to my in-laws and mil and I went to Dollar General and I made another very impressive haul and only paid $1.18 out of pocket. I will post a picture of it on Friday as I've not gotten it uploaded yet. 

*Sunday* - got up early again and drove back to Little Rock to my bil's house and picked up the trailer, and headed to Hot Springs to visit for the day and night with my mom and her husband. We ended up hitting the horse track while there and though we were planning to only be there for a couple of races, we ended up staying all day there.  I hit one race and won $35 and Mr. A hit the last race winning $20, so not to shabby of a day, I'd say. :)  Afterwards, we went back to my mom's and hung out for the remainder of the night. 

*Monday* - slept in until 8 something and then got up to visit with my mom before heading back to Texas. We left about 11 and started making our way back home. Made a couple of stops along the way, but got home, unloaded, grabbed dinner out, and then laid down to relax for the night.

*Tuesday* -  took a vacation day, slept in and then got up and started doing a few things around the house, went to lunch and then hubby ended up having to run into work for a couple of hours. While he was at work, I made a quick run back to Dollar General and stocked up some more and only paid $1.84 total out of pocket for my latest haul, then ran to Wal-Mart to get a few groceries and called it a day. Once hubby got home, we had some dinner, and laid down to catch up on our DVR shows and just relaxed for the rest of the night as we had to go to work the next day.  

Though it's only been a long 4 day weekend, it has really felt even longer for some reason and I'm okay with that. It was SO nice getting out of that office and getting away for a few days with friends and family. I'm even more excited that it is Wednesday already and we are on the downhill side of the week and heading into another weekend.  I can't wait to catch up on your blogs, I've missed seeing what's been hap-"pinning" in your worlds the last few days.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to say hello! :)

Lots of love and hugs,


  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful 4 day weekend! Good luck with the job hunt! I hope you find something that you love & enjoy! :)
