[what i'm loving wednesday]

I know I'm so late in the day getting this up, but let's face it, I was busy actually doing what I love on what I'm loving Wednesday.

Numero Uno: I'm loving Chick-fil-A sweet tea. Can we all agree that it is the nectar of the gods?

Number 2: I'm loving homemade sushi. I think there are only two kinds of people when it comes to sushi: the kind who loathe it and the kind who LOVE it. A person cannot just kind of like sushi. It is a very attention seeking food; it must have rave reviews or staunch criticism but it will not take halfhearted "meh" responses to its bizarre flavors. Didn't know I felt so passionately about attributing human emotions to some raw fish and rice did you? Anyway, though, I love making it myself. I have the bamboo mat & everything...okay, yes I am that person who buys the bamboo mat...

Lest you think I was awesome enough to photograph any of my sushi making experiences, I must correct you. This photo was taken by the dearies of OurMarriageProject who have since left the blog world. They are sorely missed.

Thirdly: I'm loving thrifting. I was introduced on Monday and I went again today... New obsession? It just might be. I bought some Express khakis, J.Crew cargo capris, Charlotte Russe top and Ann Taylor oxford shoes. For a grand total of $6! Holy half price day, Batman! Fiance still shakes his head when I tell him from whence I bought all of my new duds but he can't deny that name brands for less than $2 a piece is money saved that can be put into our mortgage jar.

4th and Final: I'm loving the aforementioned fiance. He may or may not be the wind beneath my wings, the chai in my latte and the designer to my clothes... He laughs at my crazy antics and then shows me up with his own craziness. Right now he is getting super sweaty, smelly and sunburned at flag football practice, but I wouldn't have it any other way. In just 87 days I get to marry that silly sucker and there's nothing he can do about it.

Happy Wednesday, blog world. I will see you tomorrow. Maybe bright and early, but more likely it'll be dark & late, I hope you understand.


  1. Hi!!!
    Love your blog!!
    I'm so happy you found mine!!
    When are you getting married??
    I'm a new follower!!

  2. I have always loved Chick-fil-a sweet's the best! You have such a great blog and I'm now following you :)

  3. Stupid iPhone. I just wrote a comment but have no idea if it disappeared or went into moderation. So reporting just on case:

    Omg can you pleaaaaassssseeee come to my house and make me some cooked fish sushi? I'm dying for it but don't trust the restaurants not contaminate the damn fish!! And I'm too lazy to order the kit and do it myself! :)

  4. @Chloe: I'm happy I found yours, too! You're adorable! Our wedding is Sept 24th, an intimate, family only affair on the beach & then we're having a big, blowout reception on October 8th. We are pumped!

    @Asha: I'm pretty sure that if I were to undergo an autopsy right now the coroner would wonder how I lived so long with sweet tea instead of blood. No lie.

    @Elena: You're freaking my favorite. I would hop a plane down to Florida in a heartbeat to be your personal sushi chef. It's super easy, though, just boil the rice & throw the shiz in, roll it up in seaweed, and you're good to go!

  5. Oh and also, reading about your mortgage jar... Get what I recently read cuz we're in the mortgage business. (maybe it'll be useful). Basically, FHA now has a special program that if you are about to get married, you can set it up so that the guests actually give you a "gift of a downpayment" for a mortgage and you can use it when you buy a house. Cuz see, normally, only close family members can gift funds for a downpayment, but they're making an exception here for newlyweds. Basically, all you have to do is open a special account before the wedding and have guests deposit the wedding gift there or just give you cash/check for deposit and you'll be able to use it to buy a house ( or for anything else if you change your mind). How cool is that? Anyways, not sure whether a house is a priority over silverwear and stuff, but thought I'd share.
    Especially considering you'd totally fly down here to make me sushi :) lol
