Things I Love Thursday

I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. I have got to get a move on if I’m going to get caught up so I can have a girls’ night on Friday with the BFF! This week has just been largely eaten up by allergies and toothaches. There’s still quite a bit to love, of course!

   another date day with my husband, courtesy of said BFF! It was our 16th anniversary on Monday and we had a nice time together      Chinese for dinner, an unexpected treat      Benadryl–when it works       the fluke-of-a-ginormous electric bill is paid, yay!      James McAvoy as Professor X    Jennifer Lawrence, who is quickly becoming my favorite young person in Hollywood       watching Wood Sprite play t-ball (and chase the ball after she hit it!)      running into old friends at the park       making new friends through homeschooling       drinking ice water by the gallon and relishing its cool, refreshing slide down into your belly when it’s 100 degrees outside      my husband’s reaction to the earthquake–stumbling around semi-naked, mumbling, “Are you doing laundry, hon?”      a callback from a mechanic’s shop for him–keep your fingers crossed!      holding an alligator last week! I still can’t get over how cool that was      teaching Wood Sprite proper ball glove care      playing ABC hopscotch      talking about “how dinosaurs got extincted” with Wood Sprite       The Sisters Grimm series; can’t wait to start book 8 on Saturday (this time I’m not starting until I’m done with my work!)      reading The Hunger Games trilogy aloud with my husband; we’re on Mockingjay now      a much-needed girls’ night coming up this weekend      orange and lemonade flavored Airheads       Wood Sprite dubbing her Squinkies “pirate ship captains”       my new amazing natural sugar scrub, which is coconut-lime scented      doing science experiments with my husband, such as “whose method of giving the dog water fills the bowl most efficiently” (turns out both of us do…)      sudden empowering thoughts replacing my age-old doubts and shame; could they all be stemming from a single dream? Or maybe it’s inspired by my new hero, Lauren from Glee…       Roseanne’s new book Roseannarchy; I had to return it because it was a seven-day loaner, but what I read was excellent and hilarious       still eagerly awaiting many other sequels from the library!
