Days Late and Dollars Short...

I had originally intended to write a "Stupidly Happy Friday" post last Friday, as it was a day that was chock full o' things that were making me...well, stupidly happy.

However, there were just too many things*, so the post that I was composing in my mind was going to be a monster!

Plus, there was no time to convert the post-in-my-head into an actual post.

Turns out being stupidly giddy takes up a bunch of time.

So, dear reader, I've decided to take a new tack. Instead of one monster post, I'm going to break up the Stupid Happiness and dole it out in bite sized chunks.

Here is installment one...


Obviously, first and foremost on the list of things that have me stupidly happy and all atwitter is the upcoming Daisy and Cookie's Big Weekend o' Fun. If you're not familiar with this road trip, you can read more about it here.

But that's still a week away - what to do until then?

Well, I can begin by admiring the loveliness that came in the mail!

I learned about GreenLeaf&Owl from the ever charming and entertaining Leah at Between Stupid and Clever. She had a link to GL&O's etsy shop in her listing of "Blatant Distractions."

Friday Mail :)


I, too, fell in love with everything in the shop - I felt quite restrained in only ordering a few gift tags and this darling chickadee pendant.
(I'm not sure where it came from, but I've got a serious fondness for chickadees. I mean, they're just insanely cute birds. With spunky attitudes. I like that in a bird.)

Not only did my goodies arrive super-quickly, but they were packaged so beautifully. (And I'm a packaging junkie...) I am just delighted with it all, and would recommend this shop to everyone...

I immediately took my new pendant to Atlanta Beads, and got a few findings so that I could string it on an organza ribbon, and I've been wearing it all weekend.

What can I say, upcoming road trips and happy mail? Stupidly happy....




*A very nice problem to have, I might say.
I'd love for this trend to continue!

I like the idea of several bite sized chuncks of Stupid Happiness and I don't blame you, that package is good reason to be stupidly happy.
Eagerly awaiting the next installment....

my new motto: I mean, they're just insanely cute birds. With spunky attitudes. I like that in a bird.

I love the pendant. And thanks to you, I had to go spend some $$ at the shop, she had some really cute stuff.

BTW thanks again for the good vibes comment on my whiney post. :)

I love the chickadee!
Okay, I'm going to have to start chanting, 'I will not buy the bird, I will not buy the bird' . . .

Love the gift cards and the pendant. Have to wait for my next allowance. Can't wait to hear more stupidly happy things.

Yay! I'm so glad my post helped propell you into happines too!

I adore your pendant! And so inexpensive! I may have to buy one of those, she has a happy summery green one in her shop...
