Optimist's Worst Weekend

If you know me, you know I normally avoid pity parties and practically never throw one for myself.  But, guys, this weekend was seriously the worst!!  Let's see if we can find the silver lining...

My weekend actually started Thursday (heck yeah!) because I took Friday off to work on National Boards from home...

But, Thursday I went for a run and was attacked and bit by a dog.

Luckily, the dog's teeth didn't break my skin
it's up to date on its shots
and I wasn't hurt badly.

Since I got bit, I had to file a police report

Thankfully, the police were understanding
it didn't take much time
and the people were apologetic.

Saturday morning my husband backed into my car, hard.

At least he wasn't hurt
the damage is  mostly cosmetic

Saturday night I attended the Blogger Buzz with Angela and Ashley

My silver lining!
Thankful for time with women that I have a lot in common with 
and for hearing Lauren speak inspiration into our hearts.

On the way home from Blugger Buzz, I could smell oil burning

I was able to pull over 3x on my way home.
We think its just too full now that we put more in it after the "bump" Sat.
Fingers crossed I get a loaner in the mean time.

Sunday, my husband took me out to Indian food and I hit up the JCrew sale at the oulets.

I scored 2 new pencil skirts and a bracelet
for less than 1/2 original price
AND in a size smaller than I was just 5 weeks ago.

As if I'm not a glutton, I stepped on the scale Sunday

I'm down 5.6 pounds since starting Whole 30!

Moral of the Story:
If you look hard enough, there is always a silver lining.

Maybe Mondays aren't so bad after all.



  1. I'm so jealous that you got to hit up the JCrew sale! I heard the whole store was 50% off... I'm sorry your weekend had a few speed bumps, but happy that you are okay and that you found the silver lining :)

  2. Glad you were able to find a silver lining in those situations. I love that "my day" quote! Hope you have a great week!

  3. I hate that those things happened to you...but I am a little jealous of the J Crew sale and losing that weight! Way to go girl!!

  4. Hi! I’m new follower of your blog and would like to invite you to join me at my weekly Clever Chicks Blog Hop:

    I hope you can make it!

  5. I got bit by a chihuahua at the dog park late last week. It didn't break the skin but definitely left marks - and the dog owner who was right there didn't even say a word!

  6. i'm just so glad you're ok!! Such a crazy weekend. How's your car doing?

  7. I love balancing the good with the bad! I definitely need to do this more often!

    Ps. Even though I missed the blogger buzz, I found you via Angela's website :) Hope to meet you at the next one!


Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
