What I'm Loving Wednesday

Can hardly believe it is already Wednesday! Although I have a shortened week (Thanks Christopher Columbus!), I feel like I more than made up for that day off with a looooong work day yesterday.

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm loving...that I spent the Columbus Day holiday at Taste of DC. It was an absolutely beautiful day outside and MVP and I got to sample lots of tasty treats. Who knew a grilled cheese with tomato and bacon on a WAFFLE instead of bread could be so freaking good?

I'm loving...that I made it through ANOTHER MVP family wedding weekend! This past weekend we got to head up to PA, not far from my old stomping grounds. I had such a nice time and loved getting to meet more of MVP's family.

I'm loving...that MVP wore saddle shoes and a bow tie to the wedding. And that's his choice/style, not my influence people. I mean, does anyone remember this post? So weird, right?

I'm loving...that we passed another big hurdle this weekend. MVP's mom was in PA for the wedding and actually met my mom and Coach. It was a little impromptu and not exactly planned out, but I think (hope!) it went well.

I'm loving...that I woke up super early on Sunday and while MVP was still asleep, I busted out the laptop and got caught up on "Parenthood." Do you all watch? LOVE that show. Haddie's break up and all of that??? I was crying. In the dark, with the Macbook on my lap and my earbuds in. Embarrassingly enough, it woke up MVP who was I think a little concerned that I was crying at my laptop first thing on a Sunday morning.

I'm own breakup with Metro. I hadn't gotten around to blogging about it (because seriously, things have been too busy lately to keep up with things here -- sorry!!) but I recently decided to make a major change and ditch mass transit to drive to work every day. I'll try and be better about recycling and all to help offset my carbon footprint. It's a tiny bit more expensive than Metro, but I cannot begin to describe the HUGE reduction in my stress level.

I'm loving...good news from good friends. I got one of those emails yesterday that makes you want to bounce out of your seat because you are so excited about the person's good news. Was able to swap a few emails back and forth to catch up on work and life and what's new with me and MVP (who she has gotten to meet a couple times) and my friend so so sweetly wrote, "I'm really happy for you. You deserve it." It warmed my heart probably more than she knows.

I'm IRL friends. I usually get on here and rave about all my lovely bloggy friends so I should temper that by raving about my real life friends too. Even though we may not get to see each other as often as we would like -- busy with work, family, and obligations or separated by many states and thousands of miles -- I always feel very connected to them. I know that I could call or email any of them and they would be there for me in any way they could. I'm very lucky to have had such good fortune to have so many wonderful friends come into my life at different points in time.


  1. So, so happy for you about everything too. I am excited for you to not have to take the Metro anymore! YAY! You know how much I despise all my experiences with public means of transportation to and from work!!

  2. You are a VERY lucky girl, if for no other reason than not having to take the metro anymore---everything else is just a bonus after that haha jk (kind of) :)
    I havent watched Parenthood but I've heard it's good--now I might have to check it out! Hope you're having a good week!

  3. I was down in that area but didn't make it out for the Taste of DC. Sure was crowded!

  4. I love you and MVP. And can't wait to meet the two of you so I can be a IRL friend as well as a blog. And a waffle grilled cheese. Um. Sounds delicious!

  5. How was Taste of DC? I have always wanted to go but am yet to make it! Congrats on surviving another wedding and the meeting of the parents. I'm sure it feels great to jump that hurdle!

  6. I'm loving this post. And a happy Devlied Megs :) You DO deserve it!

    I have no idea what Taste of DC is? But it sounds like food is involved, so I'm jealous, obviously.
