What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Howdy Hoooo! I feel like I haven't written a WILW post in awhile... it's been two weeks... but who's really paying attention to that?! I hope that everyone has been having a wonderful week so far!!! Can't believe we are on the downside of the week already! As you know... time flies!

What am I loving this week, you ask? Just take a look below!

1. The outpouring of comments, facebook messages, and texts I received on Monday about my post! For starters, it really is comforting to know sooo many of my readers feel the same way at times! I really believe women just don't like to talk about it, that's why we feel we are the only ones experiencing these emotions of failing! Secondly, y'all readers are some of the best cheerleaders out there!! So supportive and uplifting. Since y'all were so honest in sharing your own feelings I've come up with an idea to implement on my blog! Right now it's just that... an idea but I think it could be great way to keep each other motivated! My mind is a ticking right now and I'm excited to try to develop this into something real!

2.  Getting my wisdom teeth pulled next Friday! Yes... I am loving this {crazy right?} mainly because these jokers give me the worst migraines ever! The pressure they are causing in my jaw is insane! I am a little nervous to have them pulled, as I am not going to an oral surgeon and won't be knocked out! I'm not one of those folks who is scared to go to the dentist so I think I'll be okay! I'll be sure to take photos of what will be some of the chubbiest cheeks you've ever seen! I only have to... just so I can laugh at myself!

3. Our weekend get-a-way to Emerald Isle! Todd's mom's side of the family goes down here every summer {by the way, its in North Carolina... not far from Jacksonville}. The last several years we've only been able to go down for Friday - Sunday because of our vacation time and the fact that we usually try to take trips with just us at some point during the year. It is by far one of my favorite beaches! It is very quaint and not touristy at all and the house we always stay in is breathtaking and sits right on the beach! It literally is an oasis of relaxation! It's also a great time to spend with his family! We don't see EVERYONE nearly enough, as some live out of state so it's always a really great time with dinners, games, and plenty of beach time! I promise to take and share photos!!

The "Sand Dollar" - where we stay every year! 
4. Having a homecooked meal three nights already this week! The best part?! The hubby cooked one all by himself on Monday!!! It was spaghetti! We've got to start him off easy. He did a fabulous job and I was so proud that he was able to cook an actual meal in the KITCHEN without me even being home!! I think he was pretty proud of himself too!

5. Two of our dear friends Bo and Sydney getting engaged!!! It actually happened about two weeks ago, but since I didn't do a WILW post last week I HAD to include it today!! Todd and Bo have grown up together, they went to grade school all the way through high school together and played ball for their colleges against each other {since they were in the same conference}, not to mention Bo stood by Todd's side, as one of his groomsmen on our wedding day. Sydney is one of the sweetest gals I know! She is so fun to be around, loves good fashion, and graduated from the college I first went to, George Mason! Todd and I knew that Sydney was the one for Bo not long after they started dating! We could not be more excited for them and this new adventure they are starting together!!

I stole this picture from their facebooks! Right after Bo proposed with a cupcakes {her favorite things} in the shape of a diamond ring! 

See y'all back here tomorrow!!!



  1. That beach house looks amazing. My husband and I used to live in Jacksonville, for a few years until he got out of the marines. Love it down there.

  2. I didn't know Sydney was engaged! Yayyy, great-grand little!!

  3. Loving the beach house!! Good luck with the wisdom teeth removal. I actually didn't have any swelling which was totally surprising. But I do not like surgery whatsoever, so I was put under. I actually went to the local Dental College and had a grad oral surgery resident perform my surgery. It was super cheap compared to an actual oral surgeon and I would do it again in a heartbeat (but thankfully the wisdom teeth removal is a one time thing). ;)
