what i'm loving right now

These are my favorite posts to write, because they are the most meaningful to go back later and read to remind me of what was going on in my life at this time. So here goes....

1. Facebook. The ability to know what pretty much every person I've ever known is doing at any given time of the day?! It's priceless. Need I say more?

2. J. Crew. Ok, this one dates back to when I was 10 years old and I would sit in my family room playing "J Crew phone operator" and pretending to take orders from the catalog. (Who does that?!) I have recently returned to my love of all things J. Crew (and crewcuts, for that matter) and find myself studying the catalog. pathetic!

3. Girlfriends. There is something so special about having friends in your life whom you can totally relate to and live life along side of.

4. Kickboxing. Thanks to great new classes by Nicole, I have remembered why I fell in love with kickboxing in the first place. There is nothing like practicing the simple art of kicking and punching and taking all of your frustrations out on a little red bag :)

5. Being married to my best friend. As our 10 year anniversary is approaching, I am so thankful that I still absolutely love being married to Ryan. It amazes me that just having him around makes even the most mundane things bearable!

6. Spray Tanning! I am addicted to waking up the day after a spray with the best tan ever! Ryan keeps threatening to cancel my membership, but I think that he's secretly just jealous that I'm always tanner than he is :)

7. Nursing Claire. I have always been the type of mom who is grateful when the year is up and I can wean my baby from nursing and get my freedom back. Not this time. With Claire, I am in no hurry and I am savoring these last few months of nursing her because I know that it's the last time I will do it :(

8. American Idol. Cheesy as it sounds, I love sitting down with Ryan (and sometimes the girls) and watching the contestants sing. I love that Emma is in awe over the fact that the judges really are gonna tell them if they did good or bad and she loves to critique the singers. I love that Madeline only wants to hear the girl with the red hair sing, simply because she has red hair.

9. Thursday morning Illuminate. Often the highlight of my week, I so look forward to bible studay on Thursday mornings. I love to hear and study the word with friends, I love hanging on every word that Desiree says, I love to have a 2 1/2 hour break from my kids and I love that I get to drink coffee and eat yummy desserts on top of it all!!

10. Lunches with my family. Ever since Madeline was born, Ryan has been coming home to eat with us on his lunch hour. I love that time we have as a family and I live for the fact that even though it's only for a few mintues, I get to see my husband in the middle of the day!!!

I went tanning for the first time ever with you ha! I so remember it to this day. Where do you spray tan? Does someone spray you or is it the machine? I am scared of the booth one but loved being sprayed!!! It was so great.

I love your posts...KEEP DOING IT and I will do one too.
