Currently Loving.

Monday, June 27, 2011

It's Summer. sunny, and finally warm (again) so the question should be what isn't there to love right now??? It's hard to narrow down the list, but these are a few things I'm currently loving.

That my absolute favorite book One Day is going to to be in theaters this Summer. Please oh please, tell me they are not going to eff this one up like Something Borrowed. I have to believe that not putting Kate Hudson in it already puts them 10 steps ahead of the game. Dex + Emma forever!!!!!

Okay, that trailer kills me!!!!!! Can somebody please hand me a tissue????

Short, neon fingernails with pale pink toes (think Essie It's In The Bag.)  Yes, I know some of you are gasping in horror right now. This totally breaks my cardinal rule that "my fingers and toes have to match," but I just can't help myself. This look is so fresh, and it just screams Summer!!! The hardest thing for me is trying to decide between pink and orange! This tutorial shows how to get the perfect look at home!

Sleep! My husband commented over the weekend that I have the sleeping habits of a toddler. You know what, he's right! I absolutely see nothing wrong with sleeping from 8p-7a and then taking a 2 hour nap when my boy does. I have a feeling it is going to be a VERY long time before I am going to get to sleep away my life after this baby comes, and I am in no hurry to begin those 2am feedings. Keeping that in mind, remember when I said I am ready to have this baby any time now? Sweet 8lb baby Jesus, I take it allllllllllllllllllllllllllll back and really hope this guy stays put for at least 3 more weeks. Oh sleep, I am going to miss you my friend!

The return of True Blood. Okay, so I was more than a little freaked out last night by those crazy killer farries, and I may have dreamt of vampires more than once, but that doesn't mean that I am not so psyched that FINALLY there is some good TV this Summer. The Bachlorette may be a bust, but Sooooooookkkkkkiiiiieeeee is back and this is a very good thing! P.S. I am so in love with Eric... Sookie is a fool not to make out with him every chance she gets!!!

This Giveaway. So, I am a HUGE fan of the blog the Southern Eclectic, and am kind of obsessed with it's author, designer Sheridan French. She uber stylish, funny, a brilliant fashion designer, and is also one of the yummiest mummies I have ever seen. Not to mention that, she too, has yellow stripes on her nursery ceiling... need I say more? I tried to pick up a few of her gorgeous pieces earlier this Summer, and was so disappointed to find that they were sold out. I can't wait for her new collection so I can get my hands on one of her fabulous frocks!!! Be sure to enter her giveaway on her blog, this one is toooooo good to pass up!

That I finally have the New York Times back in my life. So, when the NYT decided that it was going to start charging to view its online paper, I was one of those people who refused to pay. I felt for some reason that I was being robbed, and figured that I would have to get my news from somewhere else (and by news I mean the Style section.) Well, that lasted about 2 months, and I now realize if there is one thing that I can't live without it's my NYT Style, so begrudgingly I gave into my husband and signed up. Best decision ever!

These are the things I'm currently loving. What's making your Summer a little brighter???

So had to laugh about your NYT item. I too can't live without the NYT and by that I also mean the Style section (my hubs calls the weekly Weddings section my sports page). And I'm currently in the refusing to pay category, even though I hit my 20 article limit in about a week. And my husband too thinks we should just suck it up and buy the subscription. Ha! Your joy is making me think I need to relent as well...
Enjoy every precious minute of sleep that you can!

THANK YOU for sharing that trailer!! I love Anne Hathaway and can't wait for the movie. Oh and I am totally hot for Eric too. But not as much as I'm hot for Alcide ;)

Yummy Mummy said...

I just stayed up until 1:30am to finish that book- and I have a 3 year old and 4 month old who will be up at the crack of dawn. That is how freaking good that book is! Although Anne Hathaway's terrible accent in the trailer might ruin the movie for me. Hard to top the book. Thanks for the rec!
