What I'm loving Wednesday ...

Yay for Wednesday! Here's my list for the week (it's kinda long, so I'll keep this short)...

First up, I'm loving that today, I'm hosting our neighborhood playgroup at our house for the first time. The new house is super small, but pretty toddler friendly so it should be a lot of fun!

I'm loving that I just completed my DONA training to become a Certified Birth Doula and I've already got five births lined up from December until April! The more I get into the "Birth World", the more I feel like it's where I belong.

I'm loving this new book:
It's written by Jon Bennion, husband to a dear Blog Friend, Jessi, about their son, Miracle Jack and his birth and journey through the NICU. You can read the first three chapters online, and I'm sure you'll be like me and wipe your eyes full of tears want order your own copy, stat. I'm secretly hoping one day Jessi and her family will decide to up and move across the country from their glorious, beautiful home in Montana, to well, North Carolina...What? We have beaches and mountains, you guys. It could TOTALLY happen.

I'm loving Mommy Blogger, Amber Dusick, and her web site, Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures:

Just click the link and spend some time there. I nearly wet my pants laughing so hard.

I'm (still) loving that in just two weeks, we'll be taking some updated family pictures with one of my favorite local photographers, Laura Simson. I've been busy planning our "coordinating but not matching" outfits... and I'm still convincing my husband that real men wear teal.

I'm loving these new boots that I just ordered from (sorry the photo is so blurry, I don't know why I can't get a better image!) :

The best part is that everything on the site is $39.95, and your first order is 50% off. So these boots? They were only $19.95! You can't find cheap boots like this anywhere, and they even fit over my fattie fattie calves.

I'm loving my Pinterest finds for the past few weeks:

I think that about does it for this week... what's on your Love Lists this Wednesday?!?



  1. Great loves and congrats on becoming a doula

  2. Wow - I like Laura's style! I'll definitely keep her in mind for when the house sells and we have some spare cash that we can spend on frivolities! ;)

    I have popcorn in a vase. Mark thought I was crazy. He thought I was even crazier when I poured some of that popcorn straight from the vase into the pot one night when we wanted popcorn. :)

  3. Love all te pins! And congrats on your certification for becoming a Doula, how exciting! :)

  4. First of all, thank you so much for the super thoughtful mention of our book! And second, I totally just bought those boots... I mean $20?!

  5. Love that I found your blog! Your passion for preemies is amazing! Great job on your certification. You're sure to be FANTASTIC!! XOXO Brooke
