5 Things I'm Loving About Life

For this Friday,  a simple post. I am feeling a lack of creativity post-vacation. Next week, I will be back all fresh and more creative and a trip re-cap too!
Sometimes I think it is too easy to say I don't like this, I don't want that, I hate this when there are so many awesome things God has given me, I need to be a bit more optimistic. 
So not necessarily in any order of importance, the top 5 things I am loving about life lately.

 1. My husband. He is awesome, he makes me laugh and he lets me cry on his shoulder when I receive bad news, like a job I was hoping for that I didn't get.

2. Loving puppies who are so excited to see us after our vacation, their tails wag so much, their whole body wags too. They definitely gave plenty of puppies kisses as well.


3. Great friends who let me know that I was missed while away both here on blog-land and in real life too. Also great friends to see while on vacation that I knew back from high school and from college, both now living in Washington DC.

4. Celebrating with friends and family their accomplishments. Sean and I re-arranged our trip so we could attend my youngest cousin's high school graduation party and this  Sunday, we will be celebrating my running partner, Sarah, her graduation with her Masters degree.

5. Cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes. Went there, eat them, loved them. Can you open up a location next to me puh-lease? I must have one of your milk chocolate birthday cake and key lime cupcakes every single day.

Such amazing things to be loving! Isn't the full body tail wag the cutest? I need to take a video of Louie doing it when I get home from work. He's such a cutie!

What great things to be loving! Seeing your sweet pups so excited to see you is the best feeling...Dixie gives us greetings every time we return home as if she hasn't seen us in weeks. Enjoy your weekend!!

Oh wow...now I'm thinking about cupcakes at 9:30 in the morning. ;) Isn't Georgetown the cutest!?!? Did you have to wait in a long line at Georgetown Cupcakes? Jayme & I saw a line formed outside at 10:00 in the morning when we were there. Obviously, I'm not alone with early morning cupcake cravings!

This is a fun post! I love your list! :-) The cupcakes sound amazing right now!

Sam @ reddyorknot.blogspot.com said...

Georgetown cupcake has thought of it all...do you know they deliver? Not sure the quality but you can order cupcakes off of their website and get them shipped anywhere in the US.

Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures and those key lime cupcakes are pretty delicious ;)
