Things I LOVE Thursday.

(I am swiping this post from my craft blog PAISLEY PASSIONS and posting it here today.  Just because it made me happy to post it once, so it should make me twice as happy if I post it twice, right?)  ;)

Let's see.  What am I loving this week???  (I always feel I need to add a disclaimer here that says, yes, my family, home, food on the table, all that good stuff is ALWAYS on my list.  Even if I don't list them).

I am still LOVING that the Tour de France is on.  It will be over on Sunday.  *SIGH*  Now I don't know what I will do with my LONG HOT Summer afternoons when I don't have the Tour to watch :)
 I am loving that my Hubby didn't get hurt when he hit the deer with his car on his way out of town on Monday.  The car isn't so lucky.  At least my hubby was.
 I am loving that we planted three palm trees in our backyard.  We still need grass, a fence, and other stuff, but at least we got started!
 I am loving that I got started on my Craft Room Organization project.  I will love it even MORE when it is done :)  I will share pics of the finished project.  I promise!

What are you loving this week???



  1. Hi there! I'm your newest follower!

    I thought it was funny how you thought you needed the disclaimer that yes, you love your family, home, etc...My blog is called This Mom Loves, and when I interview women and ask them what they love, they always feel the need to do the same. Often I have to say "yeah, yeah, I know you love your kids, but what else??"

    Have a great day!

  4. Hi im a new follower from Buzz Thursday. Wow about the deer. Thank goodness your hubby wasn't hurt. Have a great Thursday.

  5. Oh, man. What a bummer about the deer! Thank goodness no one was hurt! Its still scary to hit something like that. I wish we lived in a climate where we could have palm trees! Well, considering we are apartment dwellers, they would have to be porch trees but still!

  6. I am loving that I am almost finished deep cleaning the house and that some friends are coming over on Saturday for a BBQ.

  10. I'm a new follower from Follow Friday. I, too, have been wondering what I was going to do when the Tour is over. I've watched it several times a day since it started. Poor Lance!
    I love the idea of palm trees. We may be too far north (Augusta, GA) to grow them. I wonder.
