What I'm Loving Wednesday!

      I am linking up again this week with Jamie at This Kind of Love for What I'm Loving Wednesday! Here's what I'm loving this week:

I'm loving that I have a play date planned for Owen today. And one for me and Tim on Thursday night. :) One of the things I've missed most about our home in Washington is my friends. They had boys within a few month's of Owen's age and we had play dates all the time. Since moving to Kentucky, I've had trouble finding people with kids near Owen's age. But Tim mentioned that a coworker of his has a son a month younger than Owen so he told that guy that I would like to arrange a play date and his wife called me soon after. I'm really hoping that the two play well together and that I enjoy hanging out with her. And another of Tim's coworkers has offered to babysit Owen for us on Thursday night so we can have a much-needed date. I am psyched!

I'm loving that we only have 10 days until we find out if Baby No 2. is a boy or girl. We will have a 30-minute elective ultrasound on March 30. My parents are going to be in town and they will be able to go with us which will be really special for them. So far on the blog poll to the right, people are guessing girl for the most part. But there are still nine more days left to cast your vote if you haven't already.

I'm loving planning Owen's "big boy" room. I haven't done much yet, but I have started looking for inspiration on Pinterest. I know I want to have a room that is colorful and fun and not too theme-y. Owen needs a new bookcase with more space and a reading nook. And I would love to get him a little table and chairs or a train/Lego table. We will begin transitioning our guest room into Owen's room sometime next month. 

I'm loving The Walking Dead. It's my favorite show on television. Which is funny because I don't like horror movies or those with a lot of blood and gore. But this show is about so much more than zombies. It's about human nature. I love it. It's the only show on television that consistently surprises me with its plot twists. And I love all the characters and find them so interesting. Another crazy thing about the show is that none of the characters are safe. Moms die, kids die, old people die. None of that women and children are safe stuff. There are two episodes left this season and I just can't wait for next Sunday because the last episode ended in a cliffhanger. 

I'm loving holiday treats like St. Patrick's Day Magic Munch and Easter Cadbury Creme Egg Cookie Cake Bars. I love any excuse to make a new dessert and holidays are one of the best reasons to make them. So for St. Patrick's Day I made Bakerella's Magic Munch and for an early Easter treat, I made Cadbury Creme Egg cookie cake bars from the Picky Palate blog. Both were delicious! 

I'm loving playing Sugar Crush. I downloaded it for free on my iPhone and have been playing it daily ever since. I am currently stuck on Level 29. Basically its a match-three game with various goals for each level. It's tricky because there are either time limits or a limited number of moves you can make. It's highly addicting. 


  1. Just seeing your picture of Candy Crush or whatever it's called makes me want to play. I have issues.

  2. I can't wait to see what you do with his big boy room. I'm already dreaming up ideas for Sawyer's and he's only 5 months!
