Things I’m Loving Right Now

Hey There 😀

I loved all of the feedback on yesterday’s post about the Casey Anthony trial! I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who thought the verdict could not be more wrong. I’m very curious what her sentencing will be today. I honestly think that she is just going to walk away. She will probably get to go home today, well maybe not in the home she used to live in (that would be REALLY awkward) but I think that she will get to be released from jail.

As I promised, today’s post is much more happier. No more serious talk. 🙂 I thought I would share with you a whole bunch of things that I am loving right now. It’s a total random list, but I thought it would be fun! 🙂

I remembered the other day that I forgot to share with you what Craig got me for a wedding present. Well, here it is:

The white porcelain face Michael Kors watch! I actually picked out a few watches for a wedding gift (Craig asked for my help) & he ended up picking this one, which was my favorite out of all of them. He’s a good present picker. 😉 I absolutely LOVE my watch!!

Another thing I forgot to tell you about the wedding was one VERY special present that we got….a letter DIRECTLY from John Harbaugh- the RAVENS HEAD COACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(names & address scratched out on reasons 😉 )
Now you are probably wondering how in the world that we got this?! Well, Craig’s godfather works miracles…for real. He knows a bunch of people that work at Ravens stadium, and he talked to some people that he knew & was able to get this letter from John Harbaugh for us. It is VERY special to the two of us..and it’s priceless! We have it hanging at the top of our staircase & it makes me smile everytime I see it. 😀

Another thing that I love about summer is wearing BRIGHT toe nail polish.
(yes, I know I have funky toes…my pinkys overlap on both toes 😉 )
I forget the same of this polish, but I’m sure it’s something funny. I always get a kick out of the names that they come up with for nail polish. 🙂 I always like wearing bright colors in the spring & summer…and dark colors in the fall & winter. (especially purple in the fall & winter…for the Ravens, of course 😉 )

Next are some of the foods that I am enjoying a lot right now.
Watermelon because it’s the PERFECT summer food!

Summer squash & zucchini…more great summer food! I think they taste better in the summer time. 🙂

PB & Co Peanut butter!!! I just got this in the mail yesterday. I ordered a bunch of peanut butter because PB & Co had a special to take $11 off your whole order if you ordered 6 or more jars. (it was for the 4th of July) I was super excited because I have never tried the Might Maple & knew without a doubt that I would LOVE it. Of course I had to open it right away & try a sample.
Just as I thought, it did NOT disappoint! 😀 Now I want to think of some new recipes to use this flavor of peanut butter in. If you know of any, let me know. (please 🙂 )

Another thing that I love to do with that peanut butter is dip cinnamon raisin pretzels into the cinnamon raisin peanut butter. If you try it, you might swear that you have just died & gone to heaven! 😀 Double cinnamon raisin…YES, please!

My two favorite Keurig flavors…so far 😉 Dark Magic & Chocolate Glazed Donut- the donut one makes the whole kitchen smell like a donut shop when it brews. I love it!

I finally found the cinnamon raisin bagel thins & I’m SO glad I did! I have typically been eating one of these with peanut butter & a 1/2 of a sliced banana on top of it for breakfast every morning. So good!

And last but not least, I have to share with you a CD that I am loving right now. I can’t even tell you when the last time was that I purchased a CD, but I knew I had to get this one.

The new Pitbull CD…it came out last Tuesday. I bought the ‘deluxe edition’ (worth the extra money to get the ‘deluxe edition’ because of a song on there by Akon) & have been rocking out ever since. It gets me pumped up on my drive to work. I’m sure if you saw me on my drive you would laugh because it’s like a dance party. 😀

Well, there are some of my favorite things right now.
Now questions for Y-O-U:
1. What are some things that you are loving right now?
2. What is your favorite summer food?
3. Have you tried the Mighty Maple peanut butter? Do you have any recipes?! 😉
4. What is the last CD that you bought?

I hope you enjoy your day- remember it’s Friday eve 😀 I’ll catch up with you later!
