This 'n That Thursday, new link-up!

Yay for new things. And blog friends. And my first weekly link-up.

And for the record, I think I became a genius last night. Like... that button down there was all me, y'all. Miracles happen. After 2.5 billion questions to the sweet Helene, who just so happens to speak Blonde (my language), I can finally put on my big-girl blogging panties and make my own button!

Recently Roached


This: Jerkwad apartment complex. Mama ain't happy. Thanks for NOT telling us we had to give you a 60-day notice to vacate. You're a real peach. Thanks for extending the lease another freaking month, so that we have to cough up 1100 bucks we weren't expecting in January. Ridiculous. This only makes me more excited to move next week. Si-a-freakin-narah.

I hope Santa stuffs lumps of coal up your knickers and everyone mistakes it for poop.  

That: Packing. We haven't really met this go round, which is a problem. We have the boxes, just not the packing paper. It's astounding how much crap we have acquired this year; we're like those freak garage salers. Kinda terrifies me to move into a 3,000-sqft. home. We'll have too much space to fill. I don't exactly want to wind up on the next episode of Hoarders.

This: Can we just take a moment to think about how "Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "Call Me Maybe" are both nominated for a Grammy? Holy buckets, batman. What is WRONG with America? That's almost as bad of a decesion as Khloe Kardashian hosting the XFactor.

Grab a button, link up with the fabulous Katie and me, and give us a little this and that from your week.

I love this! Great idea. I'll be joining fo sho.

Katie Did What said...

YAY. Love this, love you, yes yes yes!!

xo

lo @ crazy ever after said...

3000 sqft? Holy balls. Everything is bigger in Texas.

Katie said...

GRAMMYS?! Excuse me while I go and sit quietly while my brain shorts out.

Leslie @ Body Won't Break said...

Yay for making your own button! I need to learn how to do that.

Also, 300 sq. ft. is HUGE. You said in an email your house wasn't that big. You would have to combine my first house with my current house to get close to 3000 sq. ft...

Sara said...

Great idea for a link-up!

And seriously, I about pee'd myself from lol'ing too hard at "I hope Santa stuffs lumps of coal up your knickers and everyone mistakes it for poop." Hysterical!

3000 square feet? Just think about all of the awesomeness you can fill in the house!! :-)

Emily said...

Are those songs really nominated? Those are ANYTHING but quality music...ridiculous.

On a happier note, yay for moving into your new house! (Although the whole packing and physically moving part is no fun at all.) can't wait to see pics!!

Kaity said...

I had no idea about those Grammy nominations, either. Don't get me wrong- that shit is catchy. But Grammy-worthy? Are. You. Kidding. Me?

Helene said...

first you are so sweet! haha I think the button looks fabulous!! adore this link up!!!

Halie Renee said...

I really like this idea for a fun link-up! I will definitely be joining in and writing a this-n-that post of my own in the future! And congrats on the button making! I've barely mastered how to create a grab box for my button, but definitely have no idea how to create a button totally from scratch like this one! Good job :)

Wait. That happened to us too when we moved out of our very own jerkwad apartment complex back in July. We even asked well beforehand "are we required to give you notice? we don't want our contract to renew or anything. we'll be moving out." to which they replied "nope! we aren't legally able to renew your contract without your signature. so you're good!" then when we went to let the office know we were moving out, they did the same thing to us. "well, we'll have to take another two months rent from you." THATS WHY WE CALLED. Rude.

Booh.

Lets be friends. We're a lot alike. Happy Thursday! Yay for getting out of rude apartments!

Kasey said...

just found your blog and am a new follower :):) I'm so excited to read more of your posts!

I totally agree about the grammy nominations....I just don't get why in the world those two songs would be nominated?!?! I also share your pain when it comes to apartments, I've lived in 3 different ones in the past 5 years and I love how they like to leave certain things out in order to screw you over in the end >:-(

Please come check out my blog sometime and follow along if you like what you see :D

cute idea! i need to do this..hope the packing is going well! also, we are hosting a great giveaway over on our blog today..come enter! xo chaseandem.blogspot.com

Haley W. said...

Couldn't agree more. Those two songs do not, and will not ever qualify as good music....

TorontoRunner said...

Hey! don't think I've come across your blog yet. Love reading new people :D!

ahh I've never done a full marathon yet. That's a goal of mine in 2013. I'm always in awe of anyone who has!! Pretty amazing.

Okay, TOTALLY agree on the Grammy nods. I'm Canadian, love seeing Carly Rae's success..but a Grammy nod for that song? wow.!

Angela said...

Love this link up idea! Great blog :) I'm a new follower!

So glad we got to join in on your first link up! I swear apartment complexes just think of ways to steal your money...sorry y'all are having to deal with that! Good luck with packing...and extra good luck unpacking. We moved in September and still haven't finished ha!

Hannah {Our Journey Blog} said...

Woah...had no idea that those songs were nominated. Yikes! I can't stand Taylor Swift, and I like the Call Me Maybe song, but definitely not Grammy worthy!

Ashley said...

Ok, I am so glad you started a link up on Thursday!! I'm one of "those" that loves a good link up and I haven't found a good one on Thursday. I didn't blog today, but next week I'll be here!

Zahra Sandberg said...

Thanks for introducing me to your blog! Love this idea. I don't yet have a button made...but I will try to figure it out for next time!

Oooooh my word. SO agree "Can we just take a moment to think about how "Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "Call Me Maybe" are both nominated for a Grammy?". Ugh.
