What I'm Loving Wednesday & Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July everyone!!! I have no doubt each of you are celebrating this fabulous holiday in some way or another! As y'all celebrate I hope you remember the true reason of this holiday! Happy Birthday America!!! We are so blessed to live in this amazing country!

The hubby has to work on the 4th if the day lands during the work week! I'm not sure if I have shared with y'all that that he works for Hoffman Beverage which is a distribution company for Anheuser-Busch {Yes Budweiser}. Apparently people need beer desperately on the 4th of July, I mean I guess with all the beaching it, pool days, parties, and cook outs, they CAN NOT let the beer run out! Luckily and hopefully it won't be a full crazy day for the hubby. We are usually able to attend some kind of festivity during the early evening hours so I am hoping we will be able to do something this evening! No set plans yet, though!

Enough of my whining! Let's move on to what I am loving today and this week!!

1. Whole Foods is coming! When I lived in Northern Virginia there literally was a Trader Joe's on, what seemed like, every corner and a Whole Foods in the large shopping centers! They both were everywhere! When I moved back down to the ole 757 I realized I wouldn't be able to splurge on my favorite things! We have two Trader Joe's down here, both about a 35 minute drive from my house and not a Whole Foods in sight! Well that my friends is about to change! While out on a little Saturday night day with the hubby, I spotted the new Whole Foods! It isn't open yet but it doesn't look like it will be tooooooo much longer! It is still 35 minutes from our home but only about 10 minutes from my office! Helllllooooo after work grocery shopping! Here I come!

2. The White Collar summer premier! Wohooo can't wait to see Matt Bomer on my television screen every Tuesday night starting on the 10th! It's as simple as that... CAN NOT WAIT!!

3. My Hubby's Mini Goals list!! Apparently my attempts at reaching monthly goals has rubbed off on my hubby! He informed me Monday evening that he has made a list of his own! Including limiting himself to a certain amount of fast food meals a week {He is a fast food junkie}, working out more, and doing at least one house hold chore a day! No arguments from me! I am proud that he is trying to accomplish more and giving himself goals to work towards! He makes me so proud!

4. Mailing off the necklace to my Bauble Swap partner! I had so much fun looking for a necklace for her! I went to this awesome accessories store not far from my office! They have all kinds of fun stuff, from statement necklaces, to awesome bangle bracelets, to cute clutches and tons more! I saw Stephanie's necklace within a minute of being in the store, but kept looking around to see if I would find anything else. Nope, I kept coming back to the "one". So after a third trip around the store, looking at all the goodies, I came back to it and said "you're it"! It was mailed to her Monday and I seriously can not wait for her to get it! I received the necklace she sent me last week and LOVE it! I wore it to work Monday as a matter of fact! I knew it would be a beauty when I saw it was in a Stella & Dot box! Steph did good... she did real good!

My necklace Steph sent me! 
There is still time to participate in the Bauble Swap! Visit Shanna at Because Shanna Said So for details!!

5. My July 4th Manicure. Since we don't have any crazy plans for the day I figured I'd at least give myself a little mani to show off my American Pride! And yes I stole the idea from Kelly at Messy Dirty Hair! Thanks gal! I knew I had a navy blue polish and obviously a red one so I went to town! I'm not usually into the whole trendy nail polish trends buuuut I did paint all my nails but my ring fingers navy and saved the ring fingers for red! I think they turned out rather cute! What do y'all think?!

Enjoy your holiday today! Stay safe! Don't party too hard! Drink plenty of water if you're out in the heat! And most of all have the best time ever celebrating our country's birthday!!!!



  1. Oh goodness, LOOOVE that mani! I'm a Trader Joe's addict and love Whole Foods too--glad you're getting one. And most importantly, I'm SO thankful I too will get to see Matt every Tuesday, be still my heart! Hope the hubs doesn't have to work too hard and y'all have a great 4th!

  2. That is too cute that your husband made his own monthly goals list! Love your Mani! Happy 4th!
