WILW and Oh How Pinteresting

Even though the past few days have been filled with heavy hearts, I think it's also important to not get so far down into the sadness that we can't get out. We need to focus on some positives, while still grieving the loss of life. And what better way to do that than to think about some things you're loving?

Linking up with Jamie and Michelle for WILW and Oh How Pinteresting

I'm loving that so many people are sending out support for teachers across the country. A friend of mine posted this status on Monday morning and it made my heart smile, and also made it a little easier to go back to work that morning:
Much love goes out to all our teachers today! Good luck, we are here for you and we have your back. Thanks for all you do!
So nice.

I'm loving the meal I made last night. Spicy Chicken Rigatoni (conveniently something I posted in my Pinteresting post last week). SO good! Stay tuned for my version of the recipe, but for now, here's a sneak peak!

I'm loving our new wine cabinet that we got from Bed Bath and Beyond. It was $199 and we got 20% off, plus free shipping which meant it was only $165 with tax. It's sturdy and provides some cabinets to hide some other junk if we need. 
It's currently displaying the Christmas cards we've been getting in the mail. Totally in love with this piece!

I'm loving cuddle time with my pup, Cooper. During sad times (and happy times), he's the perfect little cuddle bug for me!

I'm loving that Christmas is less than a week away now. Can't wait to celebrate with the ones I love and hold dear!

And as always, I'm loving Pinterest!

This week I've been pinning:
Love this outfit! Could see making it Christmas-y with a red cardi, too.

Cranberry infused vodka as a gift! Such a cute (and pretty) idea!

Great idea for maximizing that under-sink space!

Shrimp Quinoa Rolls with a spicy peanut sauce.
These look delicious (and pretty healthy!) Might need to add this to the list of recipes to try!
Lord knows I need it!
