Link up with Jamie!

It's HARD to be a consisent blogger during the summer. That's all I'm gonna say...and without further ado, here's what I'm loving lately:

You guys remember that movie with Kate Hudson and Matthew McYummy? How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days? Well, I've always loved the analogy they use to describe accessorizing yourself with the perfect jewels- "Frost yourself." Yeah, totally random I know and has nothing to do with my next point really, except that it involves jewelry. So my friends have become quite the jewelry-making experts, and I'm amazed at what cute stuff they can produce. I joined in on a crafty session with them last week and made this little frosting for my neck. My talents don't compare to them, but I'm still loving the final product!

I love afternoon summer showers! And even more, I'm loving these two silly kiddos playing in the drizzle.

I'm always loving sweet friends, a fun night out, and Tin Roof!

I'm loving that any time we have a team meeting at work, everyone brings goodies. This time I whipped up some sausage balls and pigs-in-a-blanket. I'm loving that as I prepared them, the pigs-in-a-blanket brought back football season memories and the sausage balls conjured up Christmas memories! I think this girl is already longing for a break in the summer heat wave...

I'm loving my new Miranda Lambert cd. I'm NOT loving that she cancelled her concert last weekend and now I have to wait until October to see her. However, as I pointed out above, I'm over the Alabama summer heat, and seeing her in the fall will certainly make for a more pleasant experience in an outdoor amphitheater. My favorite tracks so far are: Over You (duh), All Kinds of Kinds, Fine Tune, Mama's Broken Heart, Look at Miss Ohio... and I'm sure as I learn more the list will grow!

I miss my regular shows, but summer tv is nothing to scoff at. I'm loving True Blood, Melissa & Joey, Real Housewives of New York, and Charlie Sheen's Anger Management. But a surprising new addition to the list is The Newsroom, which comes on immediately following True Blood on HBO. I was hooked after the first episode. Jeff Daniels delivers an amazing performance, and his dry wit and quick remarks sometimes have me in stitches. Plus, I'm also a sucker for the inter-work romances: the budding flirtation between Jim and Maggie and the long history between Will and Mackenzie.

Have a great Wednesday!

Two of my favorite snack ever...sausage balls and pigs-in-a-blanket!! :) Your hair is super cute, Beth! And I agree...blogging is so much harder to be consistent about in the Summertime. :) The heat just zaps me when I play out in the yard with my boys in the evening, so by the time they go to bed, I'm right behind them. Ha!
