I love...

 I love these posts about what I love.  Heh, heh.  I love projects.  Right now I'm working on a fun foodie project... 
 I love this white pitcher.  I never know what to put in it but filling it to the brim with flowers from the garden seemed appropriate.
 I love... no wait.. I'm addicted to this stuff.  I love coconut.  It gives a soft shimmer to the lips, makes them super soft, and the scent of coconut cream is dreamy.
 I love date nights.  (my purse and shoes ready for going out pictured to the right) I love peace and quiet... (which it was when I took this photo last night) I love little boys who ask to do chores so they can play on their DS for a half hour.  (seen all nestled up in the background) And lastly... I love the finish on these barn lights. Sigh.
 Speaking of finishes... I love the new finish on the candle chandelier that I've just hung above our guest room bed.  It wasn't working for me, so I coated it in a matte-finish white paint and now I love it. 
 It blends and fits perfectly into this room now.  Love that. I also love that our first overnight guests are arriving on Monday.  Yippee!
 Right now, I'm loving the Well Fed cookbook.  I made my own Olive oil mayonnaise today... it was fantastic and actually very easy with the use of my blender!  Just egg, lemon juice and light olive oil, plus a dash of dry mustard, salt and pepper. 

I love that my man plays games with my kids.  And I really love (don't kick me out for admitting this) that he doesn't make me play Monopoly with them all. (Man I hate that game. I'm really more of a "Clue" girl.)
 I love photographing our afternoon snack.  I can't help myself... I'm a blogger.  And you know what?  I love that. We just finished watching the Hunger Games and these figs were perfection.  (My kids won't eat them though because they watched some survivor show where someone bit into a fly-infested fig.  Weirdos.  But I do kind of get that.)
And my favorite love for today... Instagram. 

Instagram... you complete me in every way. 

What are you loving today?

such loveliness here! that snack image is amazing. just perfect. and reminds me that i've never had a fresh fig. i've had fig butter, but not the peeled deal. i better try some. you've inspired my inner fig longings. : )

so, my sis is over (kelly is in switzerland on a missions trip) and we were going to get The Hunger Games. BUT. our RedBoxes were all out of em. i was afraid of that. maybe soon. glad you could see it!!

i love insta too. and i love following you! keeps me feeling a little closer to your world, no matter the miles. xo!!

You are the third person who said they watched the Hunger Games today...we just now finished watching it! I adore figs and usually pig out on them when I get them. (and regret that later...ahem). Never tire of looking at photos of your house. Love it :)

Alas... sadly yes as far as I know. (I was itching to get mine just so I could get on it...)

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

That is so funny because as I was posting them I thought... do these peeps get tired of seeing so much of my digs? LOL

Glad YOU aren't!! :)

Today, I am loving the free time. After a week and a half of staff training in which my schedule was pretty much set for me and any free time devoted to staying ahead of the rest of life, having a day in which there were large chunks of time that I could do whatever I wanted - divine!! =)

Wendy said...

Your home and family are MY FAVORITE photos of yours. :)

I'm loving that it's very sunny here and everybody in this country seems happy and upbeat since the Olympics (it was AWESOME!) and I still have two weeks before school starts back. And I'm loving that you posted lovely photos of your home to fill me with inspiration. Hope you're enjoying your weekend too :)

Donna said...

Ah, well...maybe someday.

Those lights, those lights, those lights. I think I am in love. Where oh where are they from?


Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

I found them at the hardware store- Lowe's... they were just plain silver finish (icky shiny) so I roughed them up, primed them, painted them with copper spray paint, then oil rubbed bronze, and once dry ran a light sand paper over them to show a bit of the copper. :)

Kate@StillRoomToGrow said...

Love those lights too! Great job with the finish! I love this blog!

Anonymous said...

Love the lights! My daughter is watching Hunger Games right now and I hate Monopoly too! LOL!

I am loving my wonderful group of friends. They pray for me and worship for me when I just don't have it in myself to do it. They don't ask for details about my struggles but I know that they stand in the gap for me and they do it out of love. They are truely wonderful women. I also love my husband so much right now for protecting our family and keeping God #1. He's amazing too.

Is this sad or what? Honestly..I am having trouble thinking
of something! I have had a bad cold for a week and I have been
miserable!!! I want to feel normal...ok here is one.
I feel a teensy bit better this morning:)
and I am loving Keurig now has Swiss Miss hot chocolate in k cups.

Between You and Me said...
