New Challenge, New Loves

Hi there!

Before we get into today’s silly post, I want to share with you all a new challenge I’m doing! NO, it’s not a fitness/weight loss/”back on track”/healthy eating or anything like that sort of challenge. I’m not really about that. It’s a blog challenge- Katy’s 28 Day Blog Challenge!

It’s a challenge for the month of February to get those little nagging to-do’s for the blog *coughgetmycategoriesundercontrolandfixallmybrokenlinkscough* done, once and for all Open-mouthed smile Hopefully by March 1st, ya’ll will be reading a smoother, cleaner running blog. If you have a blog, I encourage you to check it out – it starts today!

First item on my list? Managing my insanely out of control  list of categories into a much more organized, manageable list. This way it will, you know, help you guys – not scare you away.

So it’s been a long time since I’ve done a what I’m loving post…and I’m loving a lot!

I love Parks and Recreation.


I love how hilariously nerdy Amy Poehler is in it! Shane and I ordered Netflix again, and after trying and failing with Downton Abbey (snore) and Vampire Diaries (I could do it, but not Shane was not game,) we had a winner with Parks and Rec!

I love iPad!


That early birthday present delivery I was waiting for yesterday? Turned out to be an iPad! I really wanted one for Christmas, so when I opened up the box to see my dad’s old iPad (he got a new one and gave me his) I was ecstatic! Now I don’t have to just pretend it’s mine Smile I immediately charged it and Face Time’d with them. What apps should I download?!?

I love coconut milk.


of the canned variety. I love it in everything. Yesterday I made beef stew in the slow cooker (omg so good) and in my second bowl, I added 1/4 c. of coconut milk and it made it so creamy and tasty and delicious.


Yummmm Iwanttobatheinit.

I love James Patterson.


Currently reading: 11th Hour, his 11th book in the Women’s Murder Club series. I’ve read 0 of the previous 10, but I’m still loving this book. I just finished both Divergent and Insurgent (is there a 3rd one?) and I needed a Patterson break. I’m also currently reading Tina Fey’s Bossypants, which is cute. I didn’t realize she grew up such a theatre girl!

I love humidifiers.


I obviously love Colorado, but I’m still acclimating to the arid climate! I fill up and sleep with a humidifier on my bedside table every night and I swear it saves me. One night I even got a bloody nose, and I never ever get bloody noses!

I love care packages.


This one’s from my BFF’s Destiny and Kim. They had a weekend together (and I should have been there!) and got some goodies together to send me. This. means. the. world to me. I love my friends. Love! And yes, they call me Pooge. Hmm…

And  I love Fridays! Today I’ve got a client, a meeting, and then I’m doing some major grocery shopping.

What are you loving lately?

What’s a nickname your friends have for you?

  2. Lover the blog challenge!! I love whatsapp but I use it on my iphone to talk to my friend in Germany and London, if you don’t have friends internationally I dont why its needed. Well I guess it would make sense if you would be using it in our ipad, either way I love it!

  8. Okay, laughing once again. I swear every Friday we post about one of the same things…this week, coconut milk:) Too funny. I’m doing the challenge too! I seriously need to update basically everything…oopsy! It’s going to take a lot of time, but this challenge is perfect! I also LOVE James Patterson’s books. I own so many, my Dad got me hooked on them!

  10. The 3rd book in the trilogy is set to come out sometime this fall!

  11. Hi Paige!
    I’m really loving Prison Break.. the hubs and I are watching it on Netflix right now per recommendation of Jess @ trulyjess and when he was out of town this week I watched like 10 episodes SOOO I’ve gotta cool my jets and let him catch up. My sister is into the Downton Abbey show and keeps telling me to check it out.. we’ll see. We have very different taste in shows/movies. Another thing I’m totally loving is Chocolate PB2. I just got some and it’s Amazing with my banana!!
    Growing up I was always called Sheri and still am from old friends and family but I never really liked it so now I introduce myself with my given name of Sherice. It’s just so much prettier and unique! :)

  12. Canned coconut really is so amazing in every.single.thing. It’s magical. I need to get in on that blog challenge!

  13. I love the Women’s Murder Club series! I *think* I have the first 6 books in the series (hopefully they weren’t given away!) If I do, I’d be happy to send them to you if you want to read them! They are such a great, quick read. :-)

    I’m hoping to do some cleaning up of my blog too. New design, new focus. We’ll see how the month goes! :-)

  15. ahhh i wish i could love coconut milk but every time i drink it i end up curled up in a ball in EXTREME pain! wahh. anyways i try and justify my crossfit membership which is super expensive but i LOVE it – isn’t that enough?? wahh

  16. We are SO MUCH ALIKE. I have no desire to even try Downton Abbey. Parks & Rec is MUCH more my style. And trashy reality shows…
    I got Bossypants for Christmas and can’t wait to read it! I’m reading The Happiness Project right now (well, I’ve read like 10 pages so far) and have a bunch of others to go through. Did you ever read Mindy Kaling’s book? It’s SO funny!
