What I'm Loving Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Only two more days to go until a nice, long weekend!  Today, I'm loving...

... Starbucks Ice Vanilla Soy Lattes.  I am not a coffee lover-- I usually get tea when I go to Starbucks.  But last Friday morning, I desperately needed some caffeine at 5:30am, so I stopped to get something that I hoped wouldn't taste too yucky.  And it turns out that these are delicious!  So of course I've gotten one every day this week.  Oops...

... Suki skincare.  My face has been breaking out like crazy recently, so I've started doing a couple things to try to stop it. First, cutting out soda, dairy (hence the soy latte above...), and most sweets.  Second, I switched my skincare to this brand, which is 100% natural and vegan.  So many chemicals in skincare products actually cause inflammation and irritation.  I don't know if anything I was using was irritating my face, but I decided to give it a shot (even though I have not eliminated chemicals in my makeup, so I'm obviously not all that consistent with it).  I bought the trial kit for clarity, which is a 60-day supply of six products in mini sizes designed to help clear up irritation/redness/inflammation.  I've only been using it since Saturday, and already I'm really loving some of the products-- the cleansers and toners are fantastic.  Jury is still out on the masque and moisturizers.  I'll definitely be posting more about it after I've given it some time.

... our pool opens this weekend!  Oh gosh, my favorite thing in the world last year was Saturday mornings at the pool.  It's been so hot the last two weeks that I've been dying to float around in that pretty blue water with my book.   I can't even tell you how excited I am that it's almost here!

... my husband.  I know I've talked recently about my love for my family, my friends, and my paralegal.  But there's no one I'm more thankful for than Donny.  Every day, he makes me smile and laugh.  My days are so much better because he's there to share them with me.  He encourages me to be more like Jesus through his words and his example.  He loves me, his family, and even people that he doesn't know.  He's always willing to lend a hand to someone and tries to meet others' needs.  I couldn't be prouder to be his wife.

What are you loving today?  Link up with Jodi and Rachel!!


  1. I love all of these but especially the last one. Having a husband who makes you laugh is super important, especially on those rough days!

  2. I will join you in the pool excitment - which is one thing I'm going to miss whenever we move to a house :(

  3. I can't wait to go to my pool either. It's open year round, I just haven't had time to go out there yet. I love you and Donny- y'all are so perfect together. I can't believe it's been four years since you two met, that's so crazy! Who knew?!! Well, God did, I suppose! :) Thank you for linking up!!!

  4. I really may have to try that latte!! I keep forgetting that I have a pool now at my apartment complex so I cannot WAIT to enjoy it :)
