WILW and Oh How Pinteresting!

I'm super glad it's already Wednesday--this week has been going by pretty quickly for me, which is unusual, so I'm happy about it!

Wanna know some other things that I'm happy about? Let's link up with Michelle and Jamie:

I'm loving the book Gone Girl. I started it late last week and I'm totally engrossed. I'm pretty sure I'll be done with it come this weekend. If you haven't read it, do it! (and then we can talk about it!!)

I'm loving the Quinoa "mac" and Cheese that I made on Sunday night. Not only did it look tasty in the pic I took, it actually tasted REALLY good and it's not bad for you! Check out the recipe here.

I'm loving that Monday and Tuesday were teacher workdays so I had extra time to get my progress reports done, and various other paperwork. Yay for the gift of time!

I'm loving that MG is making special plans for my birthday. It's the big 3-0 coming up (ughhhh) and I've been dreading it because I'm getting older. And, it's looking like someone else is probably going to claim that weekend as the weekend to celebrate their birthday. Total bummer for me.
 I like that he's making the effort to make me feel special.

I'm loving that nothing is wrong with my car. I went to get in it yesterday and it wouldn't start. After several hours trying to find someone to jump my car cuz I thought the battery was dead, an auto shop nearby finally came by and helped me out. They sent someone to jump my car, it ended up not needing a jump (just a little push on the gas pedal), and then the guys at the shop did a diagnostic on it and found out that nothing was wrong. AND, they didn't charge me. For any of it. Thank goodness for nice people out there! And a healthy car! (Let's hope it stays that way! Mama can't afford an auto shop bill).


I'm loving the show on HBO called How to Make it in America. MG and I discovered the show and proceeded to watch 2 seasons of it this weekend. And then I had dreams about it on Sunday night. It has a little Entourage feel to and we really liked it. Check it out if you have HBO on Demand.
And, as always, I'm loving Pinterest and all of the amazing things it makes me pine for.
This week I've been pinning...

Love cute and casual looks. Totally dig this one!
Get in my closet. Please?
If I didn't live with a boy, this is for SURE what my room would look like.
Never too much purple! :)
Skinny Creamy Italian Chicken Skillet
Totally adding this to my list of recipes to try!
A-dor-a-ble. The end.
Every day. I'm still looking for my travel make-up bag that I put in a "safe" place.
Come out come out, wherever you are!

  3. i do that safe place thing all the time!
    so what are the bday plans!??!!?

  4. I can't wait to try that Quinoa Mac N' Cheese, I actually read that post last night! Love that outfit with the leopard scarf! And that last someecard is totally me, haha.

  5. Found you through OHP and we must be on the same wavelength! I loved Gone Girl and am currently reading another of her books, Sharp Objects, which is equally riveting. And as for quinoa, I made a yummy quinoa "risotto" the other night that was delish! I used roasted butternut squash, sauteed kale and onion, and grated swiss. I combined it all with Italian seasoning and chili flakes and it was so yum, and considerably healthier than traditional risotto. :) Happy Wednesday!

  6. Glad to hear that nothing's wrong with the car - unplanned autoshop bills are the WORST!!! Loving every single thing you pinned today. Your adorable puppy pins always give me puppy fever!:)

  7. Story of my life- putting things in "logical" places- only to not remember where that is! UGH! Glad your car is ok and how awesome they did not charge you!
    Happy Wednesday!

  8. That "mac n cheese" looks amazing! I can't wait to try it! Always looking for a new recipe!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
