What I’m Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone, I feel like this week is flying by!  Now that Halloween is over, my efforts to start getting in the holiday spirit were enhanced by the 6 inches of snow we got last night! Seriously, it’s like deja vu from last week. I have a feeling that it’s going to be a crazy winter ahead, but for now I want to take a minute to focus on the things that are making me happy today!

I got my first red cup at Starbucks this morning, yay!! Every year these make me so happy, and as silly as it sounds it really makes it feel like Christmastime. I love how something so simple can make a skinny latte that much more special.

As much as it’s annoying to drive in the snow, it does make everything look pretty and makes rocking out to my Christmas Pandora station at work seem much more appropriate.

I’m also super excited that my post about my homemade Halloween Oreos was chosen to be on foodgawker today! Go check it out ๐Ÿ™‚

I am looking forward to having dinner with one of my best friends tomorrow night! My good friend Ryanne goes to grad school at ASU for opera performance and her choir is out in Colorado this week, so I’m really looking forward to meeting up with her since I haven’t seen her since Christmas!

Speaking of friends, this weekend two of my husband’s best friends from college are coming to visit from Michigan and I’m really excited! It’s funny, I was actually friends with both Neil and Jeff before Cam and I started dating because they both lived in my dorm freshman year. They were also both in Cam’s fraternity and so after we started dating, I spent even more time with them and I consider them both my friends too. I’m hoping that the weather will be nice so we can show them a good time in Colorado!

Has anyone watched this new show on ABC called Once Upon a Time? I just watched the first two episodes on Hulu this week and I actually really love it so far! It’s from the creators of Lost (a show I never really got into but I know it had all these complex plot twists) and it’s about fairy tale characters that have been sent to live in our world and they don’t remember who they are. I know, it sounds kind of hokey but the first two episodes were actually really good and I’m excited to see what happens.

Speaking of TV, another show that I’m really enjoying this season is Happy Endings and it’s also on ABC. It’s a sitcom that’s set in Chicago and it follows six 20-something friends and I just love all the great pop culture references. It’s in its second season and I feel like it’s a lot funnier this year so if you’ve never seen it, definitely check it out.

And as always, I’m loving my sweet husband and my crazy dog. (This is an old picture, but it still makes me laugh every time I see it)

Thanks again to Jamie at This Kind of Love for hosting this WILW linkup every week, it’s great to take some time and focus on the postive things in life! Xoxo

    The snow is beautiful, but I'm glad we haven't gotten any yet!

    I haven't seen Once Upon a Time, but am wanting to. I'll have to go check it out.

    Happy Wednesday!

    I got a huge tease with the red cups – caramel brulee isn't available yet ๐Ÿ™ Those are my fav Starbucks drinks so I am counting down the days!

    I love Happy Endings and the premiere of Once Upon a Time. I missed the second episode and need to watch it on Hulu.

    Congrats on the cookies – that's awesome!

    And yay for friends in town ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love Once Upon a Time! Such a good show, and I agree, I love the twist it has! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I saw Happy Endings for the first time last week and laughed quite a bit so I definitely plan on checking it out again tonight.

    Hello!! Love your blog! And yes! I've been watching Once Upon A Time and at first I was a bit leery of if I would like it or not, but I'm really enjoying it!
