WILW and Oh, How Pinteresting!

Happy middle of the week, friends! Thanks goodness we're at the halfway point! I dunno about you all, but I could use a 3-day weekend something fierce!

But, in the meantime, I'm linking up with Jamie at this kind of love for What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm loving the weather since the hurricane. Gooooooooness, it has been absolutely beautiful! Do I have to wear a light sweater in the mornings? Yes. Do I care? No, because when I leave work in the afternoon (after being stuck inside all day), it is heavenly out. It's like someone took out all of the humidity and left a little bit of warmth and I am in heaven!

I'm loving that there is a 3-day weekend coming up. I've been back at school for something like 6 or 7 weeks now, 4 or 5 of those with children. Crazy children. And I could use a break from the chaos that is work. An extra day to be lazy, do whatever I want, get some sun (hopefully), and be a bum! 

I'm loving that I'm hopefully going to be visiting my buddy Genna in VA Beach this weekend....Though, in order for that to happen, girl's gonna need to call me back (Genna, CALL ME!!! lol). The weather is supposed to continue to be nice this weekend, and it is a welcome change after the hurricane stuff this past weekend.

I'm  loving that I bit the bullet and bought the sewing machine I had talked about earlier this week. I'm excited to try something new and potentially start a new hobby. This year at work is already stressful and I am becoming more and more aware that I need some other hobbies to do something productive with (sitting on the couch every evening just isn't cutting it anymore I suppose). It should be coming next week sometime, and I'm excited to start trying it all out! I'm also kind of loving how ridiculously child-like and girly the machine is. Altho,  when if I mess up, I might feel like an even bigger idiot given the same parameters! :)

I'm also loving that it's time for Oh, How Pinteresting! with Michelle at The Vintage Apple!  I have been finding all kinds of goodies on Pinterest this past week. Some pics, some quotes, some yummy looking food. So, let's get started with the sharing!
