things i love thursday! (august 4, 2011)

Hello my lovely friends! Hope your week has been splendid. We are one day away from the weekend. If that’s not a reason to smile, well, I don’t know what is.

OH WAIT. Yes I do!

  • Fridays.
  • Realizing that Lori and I got drinks together four times in one week. (NOT ASHAMED.)
  • Running into old friends at Finnegans.
  • Angie. I can’t help but smile when I look at her pretty face. Also, when she opens her mouth.
  • Staying in bed with my love until noon on Saturday morning.
  • Finding the perfect bridesmaid dress for Chrissie’s wedding. (Hello, pockets!)
  • Knocking out the beautiful centerpieces!
  • The fact that food coloring and lamp oil do not mix.
  • Zander.
  • Playing fun games with and then teaching my j-hi kids on Sunday morning.
  • Helping Libby and Rori move, even with a torn ACL, negligent moving truck companies, and 100-degree heat.
  • Bluegrass and banjos.
  • Miller’s post-church hangouts.
  • “Well, you’re not getting any tonight…”
  • Celebrating two years of marriage!
  • Crazy, Stupid, Love.
  • Every, single person in the picture above. Thanks for making my wedding day so awesome.
  • FBDC readers. Seriously, y’all rock my socks off.
  • My best friend and the boy that makes her “ridiculously happy.”
  • Hamlet has taken to dragging his favorite cat toy into our bed with him at night, like he needs to sleep with a security stuffed animal or something. It’s super adorable, even when I awake to him playing with it in a spastic manner around 6:30 AM.
  • The fact that I have friends who were disappointed to learn that I am not pregnant.
  • Surprise roses from my husband.
  • Surprise mani/pedi gift card from my husband.
  • 40 days of intentional love.
  • Being creative in a group.
  • Hugs from the Case kids (most notably, Levi’s, which he executes by running toward you from the opposite end of the room and then leaping into your arms.)
  • The fact that I have wonderful friends that text me to check up on me after a sad tweet.
  • Community.
  • Love.
  • Grace.

All right kids. What about you? What do you love this week?
