What I'm Loving Wednesday

I am in the throes of pre-employment paperwork and arrangements.  For real, I spent almost an hour filling out forms online and then $15 faxing other forms.  In the next few days, I have to go to an office to present my I-9 materials and get fingerprinted.  Serious business, folks. But it's good to be a little bit busy again.  And in a few weeks, I know I'll barely have time to breathe catch up on blogs.  But I am not going to complain. (At least not too much.)  I'm glad to be re-entering the world of work, paychecks and productivity.

For now, let me share with you a few things I'm loving lately.

Linking up with Jamie

I'm loving ...

... that I will soon be moving closer to family and friends.
I always knew my current location wouldn't be forever.
It didn't last as long as I thought it would, but I guess my plan has been usurped.
And I'm ready to live where I can make last minute plans with some of my favorite people.


... my Zumba Core game for Wii.
It makes for a superfun workout.
It's not quite as much fun as a live class, but I'll take it.
Thanks to my brother for gifting it to my for Christmas.


... V8 VFusion Sparkling.

I have given up soda/pop (it's not all Coke), but I miss the carbonation.
This is a tasty substitute with very few calories and carbs.
I've only tried the strawberry lemonade so far, but I'll be looking for the others.


... that I've gotten into writing again.
I'm sure my readers are happy for that too.
I was just not feeling my new novel while I was battling depression/anxiety.
Now that my life is back on track, my writing is too.


... this week's episode of "New Girl."
Every week, it makes me laugh out loud.
But this week was so good, I have already watched it three times.
That kiss was so hot. So. Damn. Hot.


... this diagram of cat sleeping postions.

It's so accurate.
And I think it's amusing that they all have food names.
Cat loaf might be my favorite.


... that one of my friends is getting married this summer.
I love weddings (mostly for the cake).
I'm super excited to celebrate with her.
And see all our mutual friends.


... the fact that bamboo plants are really hard to kill.
I forgot to water mine last week, but they are no worse for the wear.
Whew. Good thing they're hearty.
I really wish I had a green thumb!


... Amanda Seyfried's dress from the SAG Awards.

I love the color and the silhouette.
I love the necklace.
I just love everything about it.


What are you loving?


  1. That bamboo plants are hard to kill - Maybe I should get one of those, haha! ;)

    Congrats on employment, my friend! xoxo

  2. I love those cat poses! Mine uses all of them. And congratulations on the new job! Life will be difficult for a bit (with the commuting), but hopefully things go smoothly!

    I nominated you for a Liebster Award. Hope you have a chance to look at it before your craziness sets in. You can read about it at my blog post here:

  3. Those cat poses are so funny! My cat prefers the cat loaf and the cat baguette

  4. Yay for employment! I'm excited for you, friend!

    I'm LOVING Amanda Seyfried's look from the awards, too. She looks amazing!

    I'm sure you're looking forward to being closer to friends and family. I really enjoyed moving back home and being so close. Like you said, it's nice to have your friends around who you can make last minute plans with anytime!

    I've given up soda too so I'm certainly going to have to try those V8 Fusions! I drink La Croix (sparkling, flavored water) and it definitely fills the 'carbonated beverage void' but I need variety sometimes!

  5. I loved this week's New Girl! I am a Nick/Jess fan and also I want to play True American now.
