What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm loving my blog friends. I’ve made so many awesome friends through blogging and I really enjoyed getting Christmas cards from a bunch of you! I even met four in 2012 (Misty, Terri, Leeann and Tiffany) and would love to meet a few more this year. (Jessica? Jen? Kathrin? Kate? KarenApril? I'm looking at you!) I love that you guys know me, accept me, understand me, and even get my crazy crush on Zac Efron.

A few weeks ago Misty sent me this:

 Sooooo hot. Why doesn't everyone see that?

And Karen wrote this little blurb about me and my boyfriend in her 2012 Blog Awards post:

Hilarious and awesome. Go read the whole post. It’s so fun!

Speaking of blog friends, I'm loving SMD from Life According to Steph for being the first to donate to my charity: water birthday drive! Stephanie, you are totally awesome! I really appreciate it. You can check out this post to find out how to donate and enter to win one of ten prizes. And go check out SMD's blog. She's great!

I'm loving my Black Woolen TOMS. I bought them this fall and have worn them every day that it doesn't rain. Ok, so maybe it’s not that often since it rains all the time in Seattle, but I'd say at least three days a week. I kinda hate socks and the wool inside keeps my feet warm and toasty. I even wore them to a hockey game and didn’t get cold. They feel just like slippers. Is that a good thing or bad? All I know is that I want them in every color, especially the pink plaid.

I'm loving Bruno Mars. I seriously can’t stop listening to his new album. I liked his last album a lot too, but this one is a less sappy and romantic and a little more fun and sexual. Each song sounds like a completely different genre, but somehow it works. These are my favorites:

Look what you're doing, look what you've done, but in this jungle you can't run
Cause what I got for you I promise it's a killer, you'll be banging on my chest, bang bang, gorilla

Money Make Her Smile
It's not complicated, so this won't take a while
You see music make her dance, and money money money make her smile

Show Me
I can see it in your eyes, you want a good time, you wanna put your body on mine
Alright, but don't change your mind, don't you change it, oh no

Hello, you know you look even better than the way you did the night before
And the moment that you kissed my lips you know I start to feel wonderful

Ok, I better stop there. I could just keep adding videos since I love every single song. Well, except Treasure. It’s just too cheesy.

I’m loving Mindy Kaling. I’ve loved her since I saw this a few years ago. Then her book came out and I felt like we were long lost BFFs. And I really, really love The Mindy Project even though no one’s watching it. She DMed me last year and a few weeks ago she favorited one of my tweets. I LOVE when celebs interact on Twitter! It made my night.

I'm loving my husband. He's on the last day of his 12-day vacation from work and we've been having so much fun just hanging out in PJs all day. I don’t want him to go back to work! He's such a good, hardworking husband and dad and we love spending all this time with him. He even made me breakfast in bed one day. I think that's my job! We were supposed to go easy on the Christmas gifts this year, but he got me a Kindle Fire, Julep gift card, and an IOU for any concert I want to go to…with him. Here we come, Cher! We had so much fun celebrating his 34th birthday and I can't wait to leave the kids behind and get out of town with him this weekend!

I was NOT a Mindy lover from the Office days but when I read her book - totally love her so I was her show now too!! That's awesome that she interacts on Twitter!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

Thanks for the shout out! I love that you're hooked in with that charity. It's a wonderful cause. I wish I had more to give, and I hope you raise a ton of money!

Totally obsessed with Bruno Mars right now. I caught a rerun of SNL where he was the host. I wish him and I were real life friends.

Peace Love Applesauce- Terri said...

I was so glad to meet you, friend! You're the only bloggy friend I've ever met!

Jodi said...

I love Bruno Mars too!

I'm doing #26Acts and I started yesterday. You are going to be my act for today. I'm going to donate. I think it is awesome that you are doing this in honor of your bday!!

MiMi said...

LOVE that picture of your two sweet baby boys hugging their daddy!! Frame it!!

Suze said...

I'm loving this post!

I like Mindy's show though I don't always get to see it. I think she is so funny. I'd really like to read her book.

I know...I want to visit Seattle so bad!! Or you can come back to CA and visit the OC/ LA with me and Leeann!! I hate socks...i can't stand wering them/ washing them or folding them!! Ugh!! I am liking the Tom's for that reason...warm shows and no socks...score!! It's weird to have celebs interact with you on Twitter...I never thought it happens but it's pretty cool when it does!!

Jen said...

Thanks for the shout out! If I ever move to Washington I'm moving in next door! I got a new pair of TOMS for Christmas. It's now my 3rd pair. I'm obsessed. I love the ones you have. I would love to get some cozy like that but it's too hot here...boo!! And I'm donating tomorrow!!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Here's to meeting up in 2013, too! I love what blogging does for each of us. Who would have thought that when we created these we'd all make such great friends.

And I am now going to buy Bruno's CD. You sold me!

Happy birthday to the husband :)

tara said...

Mills said...

Jodie said...

I'm loving that I'm back to blogging! And, I'm missed your posts!! I love when a celebrity favorites my post!! I had an author do that the other day and it was awesome! :)

Misty said...

I've met a lot of people from the internet, but you're the only one I've met from blogging. And you're my favorite. :)

I really need to get some Toms. I've never owned a pair. Last summer I desperately wanted a pair of the crotchet ones and never got around to ordering them.

Misty said...

I almost forgot. I love the Bruno Mars cd so much. I listen to it almost every day at work.

And are you really taking Jacob to Cher?! Ha!

Karen Peterson said...

It's been fun getting to know you this year. I hope we get to meet in person one day!
