Bits and Pieces | Why Girls Are Weird

Bits and Pieces

  • I was nearly asleep on Sunday night when  Dustin shook me awake and together we got the news that Osama Bin Laden had been killed.  I've been feeling a wave of emotions since then and although I typically do not support the death penalty I do believe that in this case justice was indeed served.  My heart and thoughts go out to everyone that has been changed because of what this man did.
  • I'm sick.  Again.  Seriously, the weather here in Wisconsin has been changing every two minutes and because of this I've gotten sick way too many times.  Can't it just be spring for real?
  • Dustin got a raise AND a bonus at work!  He's done so well at his job and it makes me so happy that his boss recognizes that as well.
  • Yesterday I was in our bathroom doing my hair.  We have glass shower doors and while doing my hair I heard this weird noise.  Next thing I knew one of the doors had completely shattered, spilling glass into the shower stall.  Totally freaked me out.  Thank goodness no one was in the shower when it happened but holy cow.  
  • I've emailed everyone that entered the Summer Must Haves Swap!  I can't wait to package up all the goodies I'm sending to my partner.

Okay, Dustin stayed home from work today to get some stuff done around the house and then we're going to go see a movie, either Water For Elephants or Scream 4.  He's mad because I refuse to see Fast Five hehe.

More soon!

That's pretty scary about the bathroom glass door! and so happy about the raise and bonus good work!!

Have a great day! My hubby wants me to see Fast Five too....he may have to compromise ;)


Shower door - yikes! Yay for the raise and bonus, though! We saw Water for Elephants on Sunday - it was good! Even my hubs liked it. Like hte book, it was a little slow at first, but picked up quickly and sucked you in.


Tell Dustin that I'll go see Fast 5 with him - Steve went without me this weekend :( I was sad.

Enjoy your day together!

Cafe Fashionista

Ah, I'm so happy to hear about Dustin's raise and bonus. It's fantastic when a boss/supervisor recognizes hardwork.

Get well soon, Krysten; we're in the same boat - I am currently sick as a dog, as well. :(

Emily jane

Great to hear about the raise! Too bad you're sick though, get well soon!


My sister & her husband said Water For Elaphants was really good.

That is crazy bout the shattering glass, yikes!

I also don't support the death penalty, two wrongs do not make a right, BUT agree that justice was served. Kill one awful man to save many in this case.

Congrats on your husbands raise & bonus that is awesome!

Oh I had that happen with the shower door at work...horrible. All over little tiny pieces of glass and that sound when it happened? :( Glad no one was taking a shower then.

Get well soon girl. And yes, a movie is always a good idea...I'd go with Water for Elephants... haha.



Got your swap email this morning and got way excited :) Also, did not realize you're from wisconsin as well!


You've got a lot going on! I hope you feel better soon, it's no fun to be sick (especially when we're beginning to get nicer weather outside).

Hooray for Dustin! That's amazing. :)

If you see Water for Elephants let me know how it is. I like the book but haven't heard amazing reviews about the movie. However, I haven't talked to anyone who's seen it, only seen the critic reviews.

Teenage Bride

Oh my goodness I was in the shower when the doors shattered once it was soooo scary. Glad no one was hurt.

Jamie Leigh

I am SOO sick of this weather too...its starting to feel like Spring will never come. Thankful the sun is shining today though :) I hope you are feeling better!


my husband wants to go see fast five! I think eventually i will give in... :)

kelli g. { bug miscellany }

whoa that's so freaky about the door!


Congrats to Dustin!

I think I'm gonna see Fast 5 only because of The Rock and Vin Diesel. Yum!


Interesting week! Congrats to Dustin on the raise & bonus! That's gotta make your week feel a lot better :)

I'm so excited to get to shopping for the Swap. Thanks again for hosting!

la petite coquine

Oh my goodness, glad you're ok! I would have been pretty terrified by a shattering shower, too!


Congrats to Dustin! That's so exciting. I feel you on the weather - Michigan has been the same way. We get teased with one nice day and then it's cloudy and rainy. I'm patiently waiting for Spring, but I think we're going to wake up one day and it'll be 90 degrees.

Hope you feel better!

Dancing Branflake

Love you bits and pieces and congrats on the raise and bonus! That's awesome! Fast Five? I totally want to see it.


I refuse to see "Thor," so Mr. A refuses to see "Fast Five." LAME. I want to stare at some sexy Vin Diesel.
I cannot believe that your shower doors shattered. I WOULD DIE.
I hope you feel better soon!!!

Scientific Housewife

How crazy that the glass just shattered. Hope you feel better!

Alyssa Bee

Feel better soon- you're right, this WI weather has been just plain awful with all of the ups and downs! Hurry up summer (or spring for that matter!!)


Feel better soon! :/ The weather in the chic has been oscillating back and forth a lot too and it's making my allergies and immune system pretty angry.

But that's great news about Dustin and his raise!!! :) And whew, I'm so glad no on was in that shower!

Mo Pie, Please

I'm so sorry to hear that you're sick! This weather we're having in Chicago is a recipe for colds galore, but fortunately I've been ok. But I fear I just jinxed myself.

So, that is really super crazy about your shower door. We have glass doors too and the thought has indeed crossed my mind before. I'm glad you're both okay! Last, congrats to Dustin!

I'm hosting a chevron necklace giveaway - if you get a chance, stop by!


I'm sorry your sick again. :(


I'm sorry your sick again. :(


That's quite a lot to take in! I hope you feel better soon, Dustin's pay rise and bonus and the swap would be sure things to put a smile on your face :)

Leeann @ Join the Gossip

Congrats on the raise, that's awesome!

Got your swap info and emailed my partner, just waiting for her to email back. Excited though!


So excited about the Summer Must Haves!

And that happened to me once with the shower doors - it's a miracle no one was hurt!

I hope you feel better ASAP.

Smart Ass Sara

I can't wait to hear what you think about Water for Elephants.... I absolutely loved it. But the book is one of my favs.. so maybe I'm biased. ;)


Yay for Dustin! That's awesome news. :)

I'm hopefully going to see a movie this weekend, now that school is officially OVER! I really, really want to see Water for Elephants. I hear it's pretty good!!

Boo on being sick! It's no fun and working in a preschool, it happens a lot for me. No fun!


I was so happy to hear about them capturing and killing Osama...I loved seeing everyone in NYC so happy and cheering.

Congrats on the raise thats great to hear. PS I think I want to see Fast Five...Vin and Paul Walker are hot! But I was hoping to see Water for Elephants but my mom and I were shopping for too long and missed the movie time!

Thats crazy about your shower, glad you're okay. Thats really weird and freaky that it just shattered like that.

Hope you had a great movie night!

arielle @ a beautiful journey.

the weather has been crazy here too..cold then warm then cold. ready for summer :) have a blessed day!


Ugh. Fast Five. 'Hope the movie you chose was better!


oh man, you kinda just glossed over that shower door incident! that sounds so scary. i hope you guys were able to clean it up without too much trouble. is it already replaced??


ooh that's so scary!
And I think the same about the death of Osama, He has caused so much pain...

sarah - dodeline design

I'm dying to see Water for Elephants! Did you see it?

And the shower door thing is weird and scary...glad you're okay!

Melanie's Randomness

I'd freak if that happened to my shower! Thankfully you weren't hurt or in the shower! Congrats on your husband getting the raise!! That's pretty awesome! Aww I'm sorry to hear your sick! I'm fighting something myself right now. It's the hot, rain, cold, hot weather. People have said that water for elephants was beautiful but a lil draggy, it seems just like the book. Feel better!!

Melanie's Randomness


sorry to hear you're sick... hope you feel better soon!!

i saw fast five... i loved it!! hehe


SO freaking creepy about your shower door!! And congrats to Dustin on the raise and bonus!


Crazy about the shower door--thank god no one was hurt!

What movie did you end up seeing? I'm dying to see Water for Elephants (one of the best books I read last year!).

Congrats, Dustin! Way to go :)
