i'm loving

I am loving so many things this week that I don't even know where to begin!
And unfortunitely some of the most exciting stuff I can't share on the blog yet.
And no, I'm not pregnant - that would take me actually being around my husband, which I haven't been in, for what feels like, forever!

I'm loving this card and coupon that came in the mail yesterday from a hilarious friend of mine who lives only 10 miles away. Not only is this fine cartoon man sticking a hot dog bun down his pants and parading around the beach then getting attack by seagulls, but she included a coupon for Summer's Eve. BaHahahaha!!!!!! DYING!!! You'd never know it from the outside, but what she wrote on the inside about our friendship was so touching. Um, might she just be the perfect friend? I think so!

I'm loving my sweet angel Cali Hanah. She's the most calm, almost sedated, dog. And she's such a stress reliever for me. I don't know what I'd do without her sweet disposition.

Last week I went online to show a friend the coffee table we were going to purchase for our formal living room. I freaked out because it wasn't online anymore. So we hopped in the car, drove to the store and low and behold... they had 1 more left in stalk. I'm loving the fact that we smashed it into my car that very day and brought it home!

I'm loving that my good friend is almost due and that I just got an invitation to her baby shower in Montana -- so excited to shop for her little man!

I'm loving that after being apart since Minneapolis 3 weeks ago, Bryan flew home last night! I might just make him feel super awkward and just stare at him all week because I'm so happy to be back with my honey! Fun week ahead...

I'm loving that Ashley picked JP and that they're totally in love still!

I'm loving that I sold our buffet and kitchen table on craigslist to the 1st person who came to look at it. And they didn't even negotiate our listed price. So excited for extra money in the pocket, but will miss this fine piece!

Oh, and I spent all of that extra money in the pocket already and I'm loving what I spent it on.

I'm loving that on Monday I met with a guy who quoted me on plantation shutters. Do you even understand how expensive plantation shutters are? I acted all cool with the guy, but was freaking out on the inside. Now that the sticker shock has worn off *kind of*, we're excited to start this process... a few windows at a time!

I'm loving what the next 5 months have in store for us. It's going to be one hell of an end to 2011!

I'm loving this week, WEEEEEEEEEEE !!!

Now get your arse over to Jamie's blog and link up!
