What I'm Loving Wednesday!

First off I can't thank you sweet gals enough for the comments on yesterday's post and the Facebook comments I received as well!!! I will definitely be looking into many of the options y'all have suggested! Secondly, is it really Wednesday already?! Why yes, yes it is!! Here is what I'm loving:

1. Blanco Xoco White Wine!! My darling friend Tatiana bought this for me at the wine fest Saturday {Sadly we weren't able to make it - sigh}. This is the best dessert wine that has ever hit my lips! It tastes exactly like WHITE CHOCOLATE!! In all seriousness it is to die for and I can't wait to pair it with something like cheesecake!!

2. Thunderstorms! I love love love love love love love love thunderstorms. I'm not sure when exactly my love for them developed but I can't remember ever not liking them! We've had quite a few pass through in the last 2 days and while the rain causes issues {because apparently people around here have NO idea how to maneuver a car in it} the lighting strikes and claps of thunder are welcome! For some reason, and I'm not sure if its the area location we live in, thunderstorms seem to bypass us a lot. I can hear them and see them to the south but they never seem to go right over top of us! Therefore when one does, I thoroughly enjoy it!

3. Tuesday evening snuggles with Baby Reef. As I was sitting on the couch after dinner catching up with the hubby, Baby Reef decided to jump up and join us. For some reason he felt the need to sit right in my lap and rub his head under my hands! He was telling me he wanted some belly rubs!! I love our snuggle time and think it's the sweetest thing when he willingly snuggles me like that!

4. My lunch date yesterday with Mrs. Brandi and her new Baby Brooklyn! {Check out Brandi's journey through mother hood at Pigtails and Pacifiers}.  I haven't seen Brandi in about a year and a half. In that time frame she has tied the knot, I have tied the knot, and she has had a beautiful baby girl! We met yesterday for lunch and I got to meet lil Miss BK for the first time! What a little ham!!! She has the smallest little fingers and the biggest hairbows and I could have literally eaten her up! It was so nice to catch up with an old friend and hear about this new life she is now living! It's amazing how priorities can change drastically in just a year and a half! I couldn't be more happy for her and her little family! We've already been discussing another get together but this time over dinner because a one hour lunch break just wasn't enough time!

5. Having NO PLANS in the books for this weekend! I have no doubt that something will come up that we will end up participating in, but for now looking at my calendar is making me one happy gal! I feel like we have constantly been on the go so to have a relaxing weekend with nothing that we HAVE to do will be more than appreciated! Of course there are some little things here and there I'd like to get accomplished {as in buying a new bed frame} and I am sure we will, but for now I'm just going to bask in the glow {on my Iphone} of the two empty days on my calendar!

I hope you all are having a wonderful "Hump Day"!!! Come visit tomorrow! I have a new guest blogger who I would love for you all to get to know! She is married, a momma to two precious babes, and a hard working gal!
