What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday Lovlies!!! Here is what I'm loving today!!!

1. My New Pedometer App. Since finding out I have borderline high cholesterol I have been trying very hard to count calories and get a bit more cardiovascular activity. With that been said, I downloaded a pedometer app on my phone so I can track how long I walk and calories I burn when I’m out with the pupster! Last Saturday instead of driving to the tanning salon I walked! 1.7 miles to be exact! Monday morning while out with Reef I powered walked for another 1.3 miles! Seeing the numbers really makes me feel like I am accomplishing something!

2. Baby Reef consoling me. I had a very emotional day Monday that eventually sent me into a sobbing mess that evening. I blame it all on PMS but I also blame it on personal insecurities and the fact that my feelings can become hurt very easily. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I love others so much that sometimes I feel like I am not loved much in return. It can make my heart hurt at times. As I sat on the couch crying to my wonderful hubby who just held me in his embrace, Baby Reef woke up from a small nap, walked over and laid his sweet little head on my lap! It sent me into even more of a sobbing mess! The fact that he knew I was upset and wanted to console me made my heart dance! I couldn’t help but dry my tears and snuggle with my sweet boys who do a great job at making me feel better when I am down on myself!

3. Books. I love books. REAL BONDED BOOKS, with paper pages and pretty covers! I’ll probably never have a kindle because I can’t fathom having to read a book on an electronic device. I like to hold a book and smell it and flip the pages. Call me old-school if you will, I think I just have an old soul. I have always loved books since I was a child! Dr. Seuss, American Girl Collection, Goosebumps, Sweet Valley Kids, Middle and High, The Babysitter’s Club, as well as a ton of others. Reading has always been a huge part of my life! Sometimes I wonder if I should’ve been a book editor or publisher! What an awesome jobs they would be! I’m currently reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest and I am desperately trying to finish it so I can start a new trilogy {50 shades obviously}! I finally reached the last chapter last night but could not hold my eyes open much longer. The plan is to go pick of 50 Shades of Grey on my lunch break today and finish the last chapter of my current book this evening!

4. Memorial Day. Woooohooo! I can’t wait to have Monday off!! My company has not had a holiday since President’s Day which was over three months ago! Sometimes I just need a day away from this desk, these computers, these files, and these folks! Work buddies quickly become like family and like family sometimes you just need a break! Not to mention I just need my brain to rest and not have to think about Notes, Deeds of Trusts, Final Applications, Tax Returns, and so forth that I deal with every day! We don’t have any crazy plans for the holiday as the hubby does have to work that Monday! I have a feeling it may turn into a little shopping day with my momma in hopes of finding some new clothing items for our anniversary trip to Charleston! A beach day will probably be thrown in there for the weekend too!

5. Taylor Armstrong Tweeted me! Yes, that’s right, Taylor Armstrong from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills tweeted me this morning! She is currently on her way to Virginia Beach for a charity event tomorrow being held at The Samaritan House. I wish I would have known about this sooner because I would have definitely gone, but after looking up the event I learned it was sold out! Anywho, I hope she has a wonderful time while she is here and really educates those who are attending and gives them inspiration!

I'm currently having a very frustrating day at work since our internet connection is down and that is pretty much 98% of what I use to help finalize shipments of closed loans! Needless to say I need that Memorial Holiday NOW!!! Hope y'all are having a better Wednesday than I! Much love and see y'all tomorrow!!!



  1. LOVE puppy snuggles. I get my feelings hurt really, really easily too sometimes. (A lot of times)

  2. My feelings get hurt A LOT! I always feel like I care so much more than others do - I'm right there with ya! :) Hope you're feeling better!

  3. My dogs are so sweet to me too - it's like they know when you're upset and they get so concerned! It's so heart warming! Hope everything gets better for you love!
    That's hilarious that Taylor tweeted you! Melissa Gorga tweeted me one time and I about peed my pants!

  4. I used to think I would NEVER want a e book reader until my husband got me a Kindle Fire for Christmas. And I have to say it's amazing! Lots of free books! And most are cheaper on there too! And it is SO easy to hold. But the real reason he got it for me was so I could read in the bed with the lights off and not keep him away with a lamp. haha!

  5. i am loooking forward to memorial day as well- wish it would hurry up and be the weekend already!!

    ps- i LOVE me some housewives, can't believe TA tweeted at you!
