What I'm Loving Wednesday!

For everyone who linked up last week, I read the posts on my phone and meant to go back and comment on everyone's page from my laptop. I think I missed a few. My apologies if I missed you, I will try and go back and do that this week. :)

I'm loving..
My company. I may not love going to work everyday (because let's be honest, who does), but working for a good company and having great co-workers makes a difference if you are miserable or not at your job. Last Thursday we had a department "team-building" meeting. At a bowling alley. During work hours. And all we did was eat and bowl. And yes, we got paid for doing this. It was so much fun. I don't like to bowl (long story that involves bowling all the time as a kid), but I still embarrassed myself and bowled a few games. Now, this is the first time we've done this, so don't think it's a common occurrence. I talked to one of our directors and he's hoping to make it a yearly event though.

Some of my awesome co-workers
I'm loving...
That I successfully planned a Girl's Night Out! Last Friday night some friends and I went to the Frisco RoughRiders baseball game. It was "Full House" night. They played 90s music before the game (and during the after-game fireworks). And Dave Coulier, best known as Joey from the TV show Full House, was there to sign autographs and take pictures with fans. We had a lot of fun. And yes, we got to meet Dave Coulier (come on, you know me better than that. If there is someone famous there, I WILL get a picture with them). I have hosting a Girls Night Out (seven times) on my 101 in 1001 list. I'm going to go ahead and count this as one of them!

Thanks to Anna, Monica, and Julie for a fun night out! We were part of history that night, it was the biggest crowd in RoughRider history (11,927). Thanks to RoughRider owner Chuck Greenberg for stopping to talk to us (and take a picture).
They were rushing us through the line with Dave Coulier. He was supposed to stop signing at 9pm, but the line was still very long at that point, so he stayed for a while longer. He was really nice though.
I'm loving...
That I got to have lunch with the BFF last Saturday. We hadn't seen each other since April (we only live about an hour apart). We ate lunch at Cousin's Bar-B-Q (which is a local restaurant I had never been too.) Another thing I can cross off my 101 in 1001 list!

I'm loving...
That I got to see Jurassic World with my friend Robyn on Saturday night. I personally enjoyed the movie. I don't think a movie will ever top the original Jurassic Park, but this one was definitely better than the two other movies in the series. And having Chris Pratt in the movie didn't hurt. ;)

I'm loving...
My Texas Rangers. They are doing a lot better than anyone (including myself) thought they would be at this point in the season. I went on Sunday and had a lot of fun. I got to see my friend and former neighbor Donny, who was in town from North Carolina. He is married to the wonderful and lovely Katie (I actually helped introduce them). :) The giveaway item on Sunday was an Elvis Andrus garden gnome (it's a little scary looking, but most gnomes are). Lol. The only downside is that I forgot to put my sunscreen in my purse, so the 40 minutes my seats were in the sun caused me to end up with a lovely sunburn. This particular game ended in a loss, but thanks to a Rangers homerun in the 2nd inning, we received a coupon for a free Grand Slam meal at Denny's. My friend Monica and I went after the game for dinner. I think the waiter felt bad about my sunburn because he let me keep my coupon and didn't charge me for my meal. :) 

All a girl needs is baseball and friends... :)
I'm loving...
This After-Sun Replenishing Gel from Mary Kay. It is working wonders on my sunburn. It cools it, and doesn't leave my skin all sticky like aloe does (it actually is keeping my skin very soft). I hope that it helps me not to peel because I don't burn and tan. I burn and peel. Like a snake. Or one of those aliens on the TV show V).

For the record, I haven't cut my hair. I posted this on Facebook and had many people ask me that. It's just the shorter layers are showing in this picture. The rest of my hair was behind my burnt shoulders. :)

I hope everyone is having a great week! What are you loving today?


  1. Having great co-workers is so important. It's no fun when you don't get along with them. I know first hand how bad that can be. Sorry to hear about your sun burn, that is the worst.

  2. We had an office outing this week and had a good time. It's important to "play" together as well as work together.
    I hope the rest of your week is good!

  3. I love girls' night at a ballgame, I'm actually doing that tonight & I cannot wait! Woot woot!

    & yes, Chris Pratt does help with Jurassic World. :)
