What I'm Loving Wednesday

Linking up for What I'm Loving Wednesday.....

 I'm loving....that as I type this, my fabulous former roomie L is on her way back to DC -- FOR GOOD!!!  Back when she moved, I had a bit of a sobfest.  Actually, MVP took me out for dinner immediately after we had to say our goodbyes and I cried during dinner.  And told him people probably thought he was breaking up with me and he said "yes, so please stop crying."  Well L is transferring back to her company's HQ here and I am beyond thrilled!!!  It's going to be very different to have her back here, but not in the same apartment...but it is still better than having her alllllll the way on the other side of the country!

This pic is not me...or just accurately captures how I feel about her moving back

I'm loving.....the new ice cream maker.  I even went so far as to purchase Dole Whip mix from a distributer in Hawaii.  Made some over the weekend and it was AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE to the real thing.  Deliciousness.  I am also anxiously awaiting the arrival of an ice cream recipe book I ordered. 

I'm loving.....air conditioning.  Seriously, it is a bazillion degrees outside.  I will take delight in a simple pleasure like AC and be content.

I'm loving....that last Friday, after I had been secretly thinking about pizza all day long, I got home and MVP had ordered us a Nino's Pizza from The Italian Store.  Best.  Surprise.  Ever. 

I'm loving....that this week is half over.  It's been another one of *those* weeks and I need it to hurry up and end ASAP. 

I'm loving....this buffet table I saw at Costco.  Dragging MVP back to look at it tonight.  I have been on the look out for-what-feels-like-EVER for a piece like this. 

I'm loving.....this article that my friend sent me.  I had so many feelings...I died laughing, I cringed, I worried about the negative stereotype it perpetuates.  And then I KICKED MYSELF for not coming up with this business myself.  For reals. 

I'm loving....when good things happen to good people.  The same friend who sent me the article just completed her PhD program and is now a Doctor.  She has worked so hard and managed to do so much for other people during that the time I have known her and I can't even begin to imagine how she juggled it all and made it all work.  She rocks (and I would love to take her out for a well deserved Margarita soon if she is reading this!!!)

I'm loving....the blog Pintester that is dedicated to one woman's Pinterest fails.  It is both totally hilarious and totally relatable for any of you out there that have completely bit it on a Pinterest project.


  1. YAY for your buddy coming back!! And for AC (for real!)
    I love that table!!

  2. Good for you on your friend moving back!

  3. I love that L is coming back! Now I have a another friend. haha

  4. I have the same ice cream maker and love it. I have used it quite often this summer and am trying to decide what recipe to make this weekend. I tried a Lemon Icebox recently that was amazing.
