what I'm loving wednesday...

heck yes wednesday. so excited the work week is halfway over. august is turning out to be quite the month for us. you know those days where everything falls into place and you're just happy? yeah, I've been having a lot of those lately. I'm just loving life. here are some specifics...

I'm loving... that my sweet husband is working downtown now too and we're carpooling to work. It's amazing, we literally get to spend an extra 2-3 hours a day together a day [freaking commute] and it is crazy what a difference that makes in my day.  I love starting my day with him and decompressing with him on the ride home. Oh yeah, we get to drive in the HOV lane too now! SCORE.

I'm loving... that I'm going to run my first 5K on Saturday! DJ is going to run it with me and I'm psyched. I'm not the strongest runner but I can definitely feel myself improving and I'm psyched to knock another thing off my 30/30 list. 
[turkey trot 2010, 10K for DJ, 2 miler for me - it was cold in MA that morning!]

I'm loving... that we've been cooking something new every weekend. I love being in the kitchen and it's making me happy to get back in there and try new recipes out. I just need to make some healthier recipes this weekend, haha!

I'm loving... that I got a USB in the mail from whitney with over 300 kindle ebooks that I could download and load onto my kindle [hello saving $$ on books for a long time!].
I'm excited to finish up reading Emma so I can start on these next...

I'm loving... grapefruit. I used to hate it [bitter, yuck] and then all of a sudden, a few months ago I tried it again and now.. I LOVE it. I have been eating it for at least one meal every day for the past few weeks. obsessed. love. so strange, but true.
[yup, I read during lunch - don't judge me... my coworkers were still out getting their lunches - I do have friends!]

and as always.. I'm loving... my sweet, cuddly pup!
[and my sweatpants, duh]

...and my sweet, lovable chauffeur husband!
loving life.
what are you loving in this beautiful august wednesday?

Grapefruit is soooo yummy with a little honey or agave nectar drizzled on top!!

I'm dying to read Chasing Harry Winston. You'll have to let us know how you like it! :)

Glad everything is going so well, I hope it only continues to get better!!

I eat a grapefruit a day! After lunch, it almost signals me to stop eating. Cleanses the palette...ya know.

Anna said...

Aww that would be awesome to drive to-and-from work with my husband! Looks like a lot of great things to be loving today!

Caroline said...

2-3 hour commute? O.M.G. I'd die. I tend to think 20 mins feels like forever. PS- LOVED Fly Away home. So good.

Aww, I would love to have my husband in the car each day. I know an older couple who carpools, and their rule is no work talk in the car. The wife says she thinks it's what makes their marriage so strong, since they have to talk for 2 hours a day. Lucky you!

Sarah said...

So cute that you're carpooling together :) And, LOVE those recipes! They look so delicious. You definitely have a lot of awesome things to be lovin'!

Stephanie said...

I love all the things you're loving!! But grapefruit? Really? It's so bitter to me, even the smell of it makes me shudder!

How was Emma? I've read a lot of Jane Austen books but never that one. Did you like it?

AMT said...

Same thing for me with the grapefruit, now I'm obsessed after listing them as a dislike. I'm loving cutting them in half the night before and sprinkling a packet of Splenda on each half and they're awesome by morning!
