What I'm Loving Wednesday!

I'm loving...

That I got to go home last weekend for Father's Day weekend. I surprised my folks by showing up on Friday afternoon, they didn't know I was going to be there. My sweet kiddos (AKA my great-nephew and great-niece) live next door and when they saw my car, they immediately came over to see me (well, they came to see my phone, they love taking pictures, especially with SnapChat).

I'm loving...

That I got to dog-sit for my neighbor last week. She had to go out of town and needed someone to stay with her dog Holly. She's a good dog, we went on a few walks and she got spoiled with belly-rubs (she's quite the diva). :) 

I'm loving...

That I'm going to cross two ballparks off my Major League Ballpark list this summer. Next week I will be in St. Louis and just got my ticket to a Cardinals game (I'll refrain from spitting on the sidewalk). ;) They will be playing the Royals next week, so I'll be there for a Missouri showdown! 

I'm loving...

SnapChat. It can be very entertaining (especially when you are bored or can't sleep). I know, there are selfie haters out there, but SnapChat makes them funny, at least to me. The filters are fun. Here are a few snaps that got saved to my phone (these are over a span of like two weeks, they were NOT all sent the same day). For the record, the one of me in my car was taken while I was NOT driving. There was construction and a wreck on the way to my folks last Friday and I sat for almost an hour NOT moving. I was about to get out of my car and make friends with people around me. If you want to follow me on SnapChat, my handle is Averyfan.

I really don't care for West Coast games, they start too late!

I'm loving...

That my BFF's sweet five-year old felt I needed cookies delivered to my office when she heard I was having a bad day. Tiff's Treats will deliver freshly baked goodies to someone (seriously, they were so fresh the cookies were still warm). They have locations in Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, and I believe Atlanta. They also deliver ice cream, because there was a pint of Blue Bell included as well. :)

I'm loving...

That I can update some of my 101 in 1001 list. I'm so behind with it. I only have until October to complete it. Looks like I probably won't get it all done this time.

17. Organize storage unit
This was actually done a few months ago, I've just been HORRIBLE about posting updates to this list. I got rid of about six Rubbermaid containers. Now the majority of the stuff in my storage unit is all my Christmas decorations. :)

27. Take books I'm not going to re-read to Half Price Books or library donation drop-off
This was also done a few months ago. I took most of my CD collection (that I possibly ripped to my laptop before getting rid of them) and a bunch of books to Half Price Books. 

44. Volunteer for company's Habitat for Humanity team.
Sadly my company is no longer partnering with H4H, so I had to remove this from the list. BUT, I just found out that my church DOES volunteer for H4H, so I'm going to do that instead. I missed this year, but I will volunteer next year!

66. Attend 7 musicals/plays I have never seen (4/7) 
Since I saw some of these in early 2015, I've been REALLY bad about keeping up with this one!
-My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra
-The Sound of Music (I've seen the movie, but never the live musical)
-Newsies (again, I've seen the movie but never the live musical)

What are YOU loving today?



  1. It looks like it's been a fun week! I like the positivity of your post - I'm trying to stay that way but the world has been a little rough the past couple of weeks.
    Thanks for hosting!

  2. Spit on the Cardinals' sidewalk! Do it, do it! Boo to the Cardinals! Ha, ha!

    Sounds like you had a great week & I love all the Snapchat pics! I think that I'll be finding you & following you. My username is ImMandie. :)
