WILW and Oh How Pinteresting!

Hey bloggie buds! I'm back after a brief hiatus. The last few days Ive been at my parents' house making sure my dad was taken care of while my mom went to my grandfather's funeral. I also got away for part of the weekend (Fri-Sun) with MG up to Philly since we had previously planned on going up there and I didn't want him to miss out on family time. It was an absolute blast, a nice, happy distraction, and I'm really glad that we were able to do it. Every time I'm with his family, it makes me realize why he is the amazing guy that he is--his family is great!

But, today is Wednesday and I'm linking up with Michelle at The Vintage Apple for Oh How Pinteresting and Michelle at this kind of love for WILW:

I'm loving all of the love and support you all offered up and sent my way when you found out about my grandfather. The messages you sent were so heartwarming and they really made me feel supported and loved during a hard time, so thank you!

I'm loving that Cooper got to spend 3 days of fun with MG's nieces and nephew this past weekend. Lets just say that Cooper spend the entire 2.5 hour ride home passed out, and when we got to my parents house, he walked himself into his kennel and went to sleep some more. He had an awesome time and even got to play with a dog ten times his size (literally):
Gunther the 100+ pound Golden-doodle, Cooper the 11 pound mini-poodle
(The funny thing here is that Cooper is actually older than Gunther hehe) 
Cooper got to participate in "dress up"...whether or not he wanted to haha
I'm loving how supportive MG has been through all of the stuff that has happened with my family since we've started dating. When I found out about my grandfather, and got off the phone with my mom, he immediately opened his arms while sitting on the couch and let me cry. He rubbed my back and made me feel safe. I thank my lucky stars every day for this amazing guy. 

I'm loving that I got some amazing deals at the outlets in PA this weekend--including a sweater dress from Loft for $20 that was originally $80. Score! I also did a bit of online shopping while at my parents house in preparation for MGs and my trip to Jamaica. My credit card might be cringing a little bit...but I don't care! :)

I'm loving lobster mac and cheese. MGs parents took us out to dinner on Saturday night and MG's mom and I both got the lobster mac and cheese. This dish was decadent and mouth-wateringly amazing. We also ordered fried pickles as an appetizer which were also incredible. If you ever get the chance to have lobster mac and cheese...DO IT!
I'm loving that our Jamaica trip is almost exactly a month away. Bring it on warm weather, sunshine, yummy drinks and vacation!

And, as always, I'm loving all of my awesome finds on Pinterest on a regular basis, and am linking up with Michelle:

This week I've been pinning....

Baked Avocado Fries

Seems to happen to me EVERY week!

I love this outfit--maybe different shoes, but it looks so cute and comfy!

just too cute!

Butternut Squash Macaroni with Tomatoes, Blue Cheese and Sage because I'm obsessed with mac and cheese in general, and especially since that lobster mac this weekend!

I don't know if you can actually read this, but if you can't the pin is here...and it's totally worth the read. You will giggle!

I hope you guys are having an awesome week. Thank you again for reaching out and for the prayers and thought you sent out for my grandpa. It meant a lot to me, and I'm sure it meant a lot to him, as well!
