what i'm loving wednesday

Okay, let me put it bluntly: yesterday sucked. There, I said it. It was so bad that I got home, put on my pajamas, poured myself a huge glass of wine, and enjoyed it in bed while flipping back and forth between Jeopardy and 19 Kids and Counting.

Hubs came home, looked at me and said, "Wow. Are you okay?" Bottom line? Yes. Now I'm fine. I just needed to decompress, and apparently my way of decompressing is channeling some depressed movie star with my huge glass of wine amongst my fluffy pillows in bed.

Now that I've put myself out there, here's what I'm loving today:

My huge cup of coffee and 10 minutes of The Today Show.
It's such a nice, cozy way of waking up in the morning.

Call me a 65-year old woman, but I'm really enjoying Dallas' 101.1 classical music station.

Confession: I have road rage. (Man, I'm just really putting myself out there today!) This classical music is really a great thing to listen to if you have road rage. It totally calms me down in the morning, and really relaxes me after a long day.

My fun new water cup from Tuesday Morning.

I really don't drink enough water, but this really makes it more fun to do so! It's one of those plastic cups with a plastic lid and straw.

The first Sex and the City movie.

I watched it Sunday afternoon and was reminded of the sweet quote from Beethoven they say in the movie:

"Ever thine
Ever mine
Ever ours."

So sweet. I'm thinking about painting the quote on a canvas and hanging it in our new house.

The sweet e-mail my mother-in-law sent me this morning. She knew that both me (and hubs) had terrible days yesterday, and she sent me this e-mail this morning regarding her daily devotional that she read this morning. How appropriate for today, and as my Mom says, "Isn't God funny?":

"This is my devotional for today. This is Jesus talking in first person:

'I am taking care of you. Trust Me at all times. Trust Me in all circumstances. Trust Me with all your heart. When you are weary and everything seems to be going wrong, you can still utter these four words: 'I trust You, Jesus.' By doing so, you release matters into My control, and you fall back into the security of My everlasting arms.

Before you arise from your bed in the morning, I have already arranged the events of your day. Every day provides many opportunities for you to learn My ways and grow closer to Me. Signs of My presence brighten even the dullest day when you have eyes that really see. Search for Me as for hidden treasure. I will be found by you.'" - Deuteronomy 33:27; Jeremiah 29:13-14

Wow. All I can say is "wow." Thank you, MIL, for sending this today. How appropriate.

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Love the devotional - great reminder! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I'm sorry you had a bad day. Sometimes you just have to let the steam out however you can (and wine in bed sounds like the perfect way to me!). Hope today and the rest of your week are amazing.
