I love short weeks because just like that, it is another weekend! We don't have many plans this weekend and I am ok with it.


ONE. So Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine posted a fix to the comment blogger issue. Follow these directions and it should work for you. It worked for me!

(from Andrea's blog)
Go into your design wall and on left hand side go into your settings and then click on email and then where you have your email address in the comment notification box, delete it and then save and then re enter your email address and save again. I would change browsers in between these steps. This is the only way it has worked for me.

Then you will get an email from blogger with a invitation to receive comment notification and then click on SUBSCRIBE and then your emails will start coming through to your email address.
 

Make SURE you hit SAVE when you delete your old email address and then re-enter the address and save it again.


TWO. In our living room, we have this floor lamp that I bought from Ikea about 8 years ago. It has been good to us, but it is time for an upgrade. Not only that, but only 2 of the lights work and it is sooo hard to find the replacement light bulbs. Plus I don't live anywhere near an Ikea. Here is our current lamp.

And here are a few lamps that I have my eye on.

THREE. Earlier this week, J Crew Factory was having a sale for the 4th of July and I scooped up 3 shirts. I got them for about $13 to $15 each plus free shipping. I love sales like this.

Plus I earned 10% cash back using ebates. Do you use ebates? If you shop online at all, you can sign up here, and then you can install it within your browser, so it automatically picks up the discounts (just click activate) or you can go to ebates.com and type in J Crew and activate coupons and your cash back offer. Super easy. I make a ton of money back during the holidays.

FOUR. When we are in Graeagle, my SIL brought a sandwich play set by Melissa and Doug and the girls had a blast playing with it. I just remembered this, so I went on amazon to check it out and then saw they have a pizza version of it that comes with a pizza box and I was sold. I bought this and I can't wait to give it to the girls. Then they can make us pizzas and have more items for their play kitchen. Like they can fit anymore in that kitchen, ha.

  2. So did that little fix actually work? If it does, I'll have to figure out if I want to go back to that or stick with Disqus. Decisions decisions
