WILW and Oh, How Pinteresting!

Happy Wednesday, friends! I had a dream last night that it was Friday morning, only to wake up and realize that it's actually Wednesday. So, despite that disappointment, at least I have two fun link-ups to participate in.

First, I'm linking up with Jamie at this kind of love, for WILW:

I'm loving that there's only 16 more days until MG and I leave for Punta Cana for a long weekend! After what feels like 1000 straight days of cloudy skies and/or rain, and a lot of stress at work, I'm looking forward to this warm-weather getaway to relax and spend time with my dude :)

I'm loving that we are also doing a Happy Hour cruise around the Potomac tonight. It's an hour and a half long, with drink specials, and hopefully some good weather (keeping my fingers crossed on this one considering it looks like the end of the world outside right now).

I'm loving that I got a bunch of games delivered from a DonorsChoose project that I had posted. (If you don't know what DonorsChoose is, check it out--it's a great way to support teachers) My kids LOVED the games that I had gotten and I definitely had a great day overall with kiddos yesterday. Definitely hoping that that continues into today!

I'm loving that I got my Fall Frenzy gift from Rachel yesterday in the mail. It was chock full of all kinds of goodies and I was SUPER excited to get it! I'm hoping she gets hers and likes it as well! (I must admit, I've already torn open the Sour Patch kids, Rachel! haha)

I'm loving that it's time for Oh, How Pinteresting! and am linking up with Michelle at The Vintage Apple. You should too!


These are some of the things I've been pinning this week:

Homemade broccoli cheddar soup (like Panera)...I die!

Super cute fall/winter decor. And I LOVE lanterns so this is right up my alley!

A little dose of sunshine since we are sorely lacking it here in DC lately.

Because it made me giggle!

Ever had a day where you feel like this?? I know I sure have  lol

Something about this screams perfect fall, cute-but-casual outfit to me. Love!

Strawberry Champagne slushies?!?!?! Need I say more?

Wouldnt it be nice if this could ACTUALLY be my job? I know I'd love it! :)

So, what are you loving and pinning this week? Show me! Show me!!
