What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Normally, I try to keep my status updates and blog posts free of negativity, BUT...I need to vent just a little!  Without getting into the specifics, let me just say this week has been ROUGH!  It scares me that it is only Wednesday (and the day has barely gotten underway).  I know we just had a week off not too long ago for Thanksgiving, but Christmas break can not get here fast enough.  Fingers crossed that things settle down...I feel like everyone is just so ready for a break!  Okay, I'm done...enough of that!

With that being said, now seems like the perfect time to switch gears and talk about the things that I am LoViNg this morning!  How is that for an attitude shift?
I'm loving... this post from my made me smile!  She is good for that...I guess that is what mothers are for!  Gotta love the entire support system!  It is important that I never forget all of the people in my life who are there for me, and who I can turn to when I have one of those days that makes me want to scream into a pillow!
I'm loving... all of the holiday cheer!  So maybe it's normal that this time of year is incredibly hectic...but it's the little things that make it all worth it!  Totally loving my Santa pants wine bottle holder, I found these at Kirkland's a few years ago...and you can order them online HERE!  Seriously, how cute are they (and the flamingo wine topper)!?! 
I'm loving... listening to Christmas music.  I highly recommend tuning into the "She & Him (Holiday)" Pandora station!  Discovered it last year, by far one of my favorites!  Instant good mood!  
I'm loving... painting an "oddball" nail!  I think it's really called an "accent" nail...opinions?  Anyway, it was weird at first, but now it just looks strange to me when they are all one color.  I like experimenting with different color combos!  In actuality, I just think it's cool to be like the middle schoolers!  Ha!  This is a deep purple and a silvery/gold...hard to tell in this pic.  
One more... sort of...
I'm loving... these yummy Christmas cookie recipes that I pinned last night!  I so badly want to make them all!  I probably won't be making any of these, but I do have a very special cookie recipe that I will be making vast quantities of....and if you are all lucky, I just might share it on here!  We'll see!  (If you know me, you more than likely know EXACTLY what I am referring too).

What better way to take my mind off of all of that other nonsense?!  I feel better now, thanks to Jamie at This Kind Of Love for hosting this link up!  Let's make it a Happy Wednesday people!
