What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hey y'all! I'm linking up with This Kind of Love for my first installment of "What I'm Loving Wednesday".

1. I reached 50 fabulous followers!!!
Who me? 50 of you are following little ole me? My goal when I started to get serious about blogging was to hit 100 followers by the end of this year. It seemed like a lofty goal at the time, but only 2 months into the year and I'm already halfway there. YAY! I love, love, love getting to know all of you and your comments and e-mails make my heart ridiculously happy. Blogging has changed my life, which sounds crazy but it's so true.  I get inspiration from every single one of your blogs whether they be about love, life, fashion, beauty or whatever.  I could never say thank you enough for following/commenting on my blog.  You ladies are the absolute best!

2. Target Dollar Spot 7 Pocket File Folder

Enticed yet again.  I cannot resist a quick stop at the Target Dollar Spot.  My latest purchase?  This 7 pocket file folder that fits perfectly into my purse.  There are 7 slots you can label each divider whatever you like.  I can never find my CVS extra bucks, coupons, receipts, etc. when I need them.  I'm loving this because all of the annoying paper that used to clutter up my purse and wallet is organized now.

3. Copco Travel Mug (in pink of course)
Another Christmas gift from my fabulouso Grandma.  This coffee mug looks like a disposable one but it's reusable. It has a double wall lining to keep your beverage hot, which I love. Snatch up your own from Bed, Bath and Beyond, but don't forget to use one of their 20 percent off coupons that never expire.  I've never understood why they even bother with the expiration date. One summer during college I even worked at a BB&B, yet I still don't know.  Yours truly was the official "towel girl", which made me so particular about my towel folding.  They have to be perfectly lined up.

4. The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virgina
Meet Sue Bob White, the self-proclaimed "sexy one".  [via]
Last night I watched this documentary that follows 4 generations of the White family from Boone County, WV.  It's definitely funny and ridiculous at times (i.e. Jesco White, the "dancing outlaw"), but the cycle of crime, addiction and poverty that plagues the White family is really sad.  Witnessing the environment these children grow up in will break your heart.  I watched a 20/20 episode on the children of Appalachia a few years ago, and if you haven't watched it, you have to because it is truly eye opening.  It is alarming that this goes on in America but is NEVER talked about.  Yet, we worry about all the Haitians.  Just a thought.

5. Last but certainly not least, I am loving the gas prices. 
Sike! I'm on empty and I'm scared to fill up my car.  It's doom's day. 
I'll take her shoes, BMW, purse and legs.  Please & thanks! [via]
