What I'm Loving Wednesday

So much beauty in the world...I'm going to focus on all of it instead of the silly little breakdown I had at story time with Sookie this morning. Because that's how I am, one minute I'm worried about earth shattering notions such as mortality, and the next I'm raving about Peep brand lip gloss I discovered in the dollar bin at Target several weeks ago. It is wacky, but that is me.

Just a little note, the places I've linked to are where I've purchased things and I simply wanted to spread the love. :)

I'm loving playing fetch with this sweet guy. He has been having a lot of jealousy issues with Sookie lately and I feel bad for him. He loves her so much, but he also gets incredibly irritated with her. I have been making a conscious effort to give him more one on one time while little girl is napping. He was my best buddy when I was on bed rest the last several weeks of my pregnancy; I think he is still adjusting to not being the center of attention at all times.

I'm loving the Fresh Lime from Taco Amigo. It has always been a favorite and while I do enjoy Purple Turtle's version and Sonic's version as well, there is something about theirs that is a perfection of bubbles.

I'm loving my Peeps brand lip gloss from the dollar bin at Target (as stated previously :wink:) as much as I'm loving my bare escentuals lip gloss.

I'm loving this spunky purple gal of a pup I picked up at Bijou Market a few weeks ago.

 I'm loving my Gussy bag! I have been patiently waiting for this beauty to arrive and I have to be honest, it is just to die for silly beyond gorgeous in person! The craftsmanship Maggie puts into these bags is superb. You can tell they are made with lots of love. I am going be using mine as a combination purse for me and diaper bag for Sookie Monster. It holds a ton and yet is lightweight and doesn't constantly slide off my shoulder. I'm obsessed! :)

I'm loving my whimsical owl necklace from Stella & Dot. Even better? From now through Friday, May 6th, it is 50% off! It is so fun for summer and I love his green eyes.

I'm loving this darling bird I fell in love with also at Bijou Market. I want to put it in Sookie's room, which just happens to be a Fairy Garden. :)

I'm loving the buzz of activities I have going on with one of my passions, the Cystinosis Research Network. It is an incredibly busy time of year for all of us on the Board of Directors and I'm so honored to be a hand in all that we do. Our big family conference is in July in San Francisco. I'm also busy with preparing for the C. H. Robinson Cystinosis Research Charity Golf Tournament that happens at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah. I wanted to take a moment and say if you are in the area and are a golfer, or know a golfer who would be interested, we are looking for a few more teams to golf at Thanksgiving Point! In addition, we are seeking item donations for our raffle that is held after the golf tournament is over. My heart is touched with the response we have received so far from generous Etsy and handmade boutiques online who have donated product or credit to their wonderful shops! Our cause is so small (about 500 people in the U.S. have the disease) we are not granted any goverment funding for research. If you would love to help out, please contact me at tahnie(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you so much!

It is Wednesday! :)
