What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm linking up with Jamie today for What I'm Loving Wednesday! 
Go on over and check it out and link up too!

I'm loving The Nest magazine... You all know I love cooking magazines. I can't resist snatching up a new one practically every time I'm in the grocery store...but eventually I do get a little tired of looking at food, especially after I've spent hours cooking and cleaning.

I used to read Glamour, Cosmopolitan and US Weekly every month, but as I've gotten a little older and my life has changed I've stopped picking those up as much--I just don't connect with them anymore. After we got engaged I was wedding magazine crazy, and you know there are plenty of those out there.
Well, now that I don't need the wedding magazines, and sometimes I just get tired of recipes (gasp, did I really say that ?!?), that's why I'm loving The Nest magazine. They market themselves as the "hip home / life how-to" magazine, which absolutely applies to so many people our age. The magazine has such a wide variety of articles that I think most women would enjoy flipping through it!

I'm loving (returning to) graduate school... Yep, I'm baaack. I started my Multiple Subject teaching credential two years ago when I started working full-time. I went for three semesters and then took a "little" (a whole year) break while I was wrapping up our wedding plans and to be honest, I was just tired of all the additional work and hours spent away from home at night, etc. I needed that break,,, and now I'm back and I couldn't be happier. Last night (Tuesday) was my first night back in class and it was awesome---when I can forget about how much its costing us (its a private school) and how much extra time its going to take away from other areas of my life....BUT, it feels really good to be back on the right track again and one step closer to being done for good.

I'm loving that Valentine's Day is just around the corner... I know its not even February yet, but I am already looking forward to a new holiday to celebrate and a new 'theme' to go off for cooking, etc. But I really love all the cute pink, red and white displays in the stores and in magazines. Keith and I don't go all out on this holiday, we usually go to dinner and stuff.
I'm loving my husband... he's just awesome, but I have some specific reasons for loving him today.
  1. He is thoughtful. I bought white tulips Sunday for my Grandpa's 85th birthday and they have since died. They really should have lasted much longer, as I took great care of them for their short little life. Well, I came home today and Keith had bought me replacement white tulips. Isn't that sweet? He also bought me my favorite candy, Red Vines. 
  2. He is creative. He's been busy with our home / vacation videos lately uploading them onto his new Mac and editing them in iMovie to make hilarious videos for our friends. Its been really fun to watch him get so into it and even more fun to laugh at all our goofy moments with our best friends. Someday I would love to share them with you all. 
I'm loving that its Wednesday, which means its Hump Day and we're almost to the weekend again!

I hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday! If you're not already a "follower" please join! 
I'd love to follow your blog too and see all the wonderful people that stop by today!
