Today was a bit of a bust in terms of productivity, but it was an absolute blast in terms of spending some QT with a friend and my BF. We have a 7-hour brunch to thank for that.
If you haven’t already, don’t miss your chance to enter the $100 cash giveaway I’m part of–three days left!
This past week was somewhat of a wild ride. As I mentioned in Friday’s Link Love post, I was featured on CNN Money on Wednesday. It was somewhat unnerving to have this blog tied to my full, “real” name, but I think it’s a great sign for what’s to come from The Happy Homeowner. Plus, it was fun to finally tell close family and friends about my blog!
Aside from the highs of the hurricane of traffic CNN has been sending my way, things were sailing along quite smoothly over the course of the week. That was, until Thursday night when I somehow managed to crack part of a molar eating rock candy. Seriously?? I’m not looking forward to that dental bill when it comes in, but I suppose it’s a great lesson: One piece of rock candy is plenty; two pieces = disaster.
This week was also hugely productive for my 2013 goal of turning my second bedroom into an office. I priced out some options for my built-in desk, and I settled on buying base cabinets from IKEA (only $30 each!) and DIYing the top of the desk with lumber from Home Depot.

So far, so good for my mission of cooking my way through the Joy of Cooking this year. For next week, I have some traveling scheduled so we’ll be eating all the awesome leftovers from this week’s adventures. Here’s one of my favorite dishes so far:
