What I'm Loving Wednesday

Linking up with Jamie.

I'm loving ...

... hot chocolate with peppermint marshmallows.
 My friend, Jaci, mentioned them on twitter the other night.
I had to find them.
My life has been forever changed.


... the fact that I ran outside in a tshirt yesterday. (Don't worry, I was also wearing pants.)
Mid 50s in December in Iowa is just crazy.
But I don't plan to waste days like that.
I knocked out three miles and felt awesome.


... my yoga class.
I could not have discovered yoga at a more perfect time.
When I started, I had no idea some major stress was in my near future.
The practice is wonderful and the other people in the class are so sweet.
Tuesday evenings are my favorite now. 


... that the Iowa State Cyclones are headed to the Liberty Bowl!
Memphis will be a wonderful place to spend New Year's Eve.
It looks like I won't be able to make the trip this year.
But I will definitely be tuning in to watch my boys.


... endless Christmas movies on ABC Family, Hallmark and Lifetime.
My DVR is slowly (or quickly) filling up with cheesy holiday entertainment.
There just might be a marathon this weekend.
And every weekend in December.
I regret nothing.


... my varied and supportive network of friends.
Allow me to get mushy for a moment.
My friends have been so amazing to me during these past few tough weeks.
I truly believe I have the best friends in the world.
And I am so grateful for each and every one of them.


And that's about all I have the time/energy/heart to love this week.

What are you loving?


  1. ...and I will NOT be looking for those marshmallows. :)
