What I'm Loving Wednesday + My 100th POST!

Link up here if you want to share what you are loving too!

1. Grab your party hats and crack open a brewski because we are having a PAR-TAY!!! This is my 100th post! That. Is. Crazy. I feel like I just started blogging yesterday. Also, I’ve got one more milestone around the corner; I’m less than 15 peeps away from hitting 100 followers.  If you happen to be a reader, and not a follower … I'd love you forever if you wanna MAKE MY DAY and help me hit 100 followers on the same day that I publish my 100th post. *wink, wink*  And I have a giveaway all lined up to celebrate my 100th follower.  Just saaaayin!

2. Remember my college buddy Kristen who was in the horrible car wreck and I asked for your prayers? Well, Kristen moved from the hospital to home!  She is proof that there is power in prayer! She is an elementary school teacher and is hoping to be back in her classroom by May. Please keep praying for her continued speedy recovery!

3. In less serious news, my latest electric bill is only $38. Don’t mind if I do. Lucifer (the ex) used to call me “The Light Nazi”. True, I can be a bit of a stickler, but there is no sense in having lights on in rooms you aren’t using. Ha, tell my Mom that. Pretty sure she wishes I had the same courtesy when she was paying the bill for my first 18 years of life.

4. I love surprise fresh flowers that appeared on my door Sunday night!  I wish I could tell y'all they're from some hot new man, but sigh … they were from my brother to say “thank you” for everything I do for Reesey. I mean, don’t get me wrong, these flowers seriously made my week and it was so out of character sweet of him. I was just hoping for a secret admirer when I first saw them. I should’ve known better.  Regardless, aren't they gorge?

5. Prior to coming home to the flowers Sunday, I was at dinner with some of my college girlies because our friend Megan wanted to get us all together to announce she was PREGGERS!  I can’t believe we’re at the point in life where friends are getting knocked up on purpose! I love babies so much and I can’t wait to met their little guy or gal. They are waiting to find out the sex, which I think is such a fun idea if you can contain your curiosity. Congrats Megs, you’ll be my chugging buddy again in only 31 weeks! BTW – her husband keeps suggesting the name “Axel” if it’s a boy. Bless his heart.

6. Fun food storage containers. I seriously almost peed my pants in excitement and amazement when I saw these. I use them to bring my breakfast, lunch and snacks to work. So much more economical and “green” to buy something reusable than waste plastic baggies.
Cereal On-the-Go - $4.99 /  Klip-It Lunch Cube - $4.99 / StayFit Snack N Dip - $4.99
7. Not sure if you are aware, but that little baseball team we have in the Dallas area went to that little sporting event called the World Series last year. Sure, they lost, but it’s still an accomplishment to go to the WORLD SERIES. I about fell over when I saw all the ADORABLE Texas Ranger’s apparel Victoria’s Secret is selling. With Opening Day right around the corner, I cannot resist scooping up a new tee or tank for the occasion.

8. I’ve mentioned before I wear my hair wavy to work and I have used Suave Mousse for the longest. I decided to try something new and bought TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Activated Spray during my last Wal-Mart adventure. So far, so good. It does a great job of holding my waves and taming the frizz. Not to mention it costs less than $4.

9. During this same Wal-Mart adventure (Happy to report I did NOT get hit on by any Old Man Rivers types this time. Read #3 here for that nonsense.), these O-Celo-O Dish wand Refill Sponges caught my eye because of their cute design. Then I read that they are non-stick and supposedly "even eggs and cheese won’t stick" to them. Magical! I never knew such a thing existed.

10. And last, but certainly not least, I’m loving that my friend Erin is moving down the street from me! We get to be neighbs again! We used to live in the same apt complex about a 1.5 yr ago and would do dinner and wine nights once a week, switching back in forth. It gave us time to catch up on life. So glad we get to start this again my little wizard friend!

  18. I am not following for a couple reasons...

    you called your ex "Lucifer" and I LOVED it.

    you mentioned the MLB stuff that Victoria's Secret sells now... I live in MD and died over the O's stuff.

    You can cheer for some of my favorite guys!!! Darren O'day because he's a sweetie and Josh Hamilton because I love his story!!!
