What I'm Loving Wednesday

Here we go! Another week of What I'm Loving Wednesday... here's a look into everything that makes me extremely happy:

Listening to Audiobooks at Work.
This is my newest love. I don’t have time to sit with a book anymore since my full-time job leaves little time for relaxation… Thank goodness for Audible. I am currently listening to Keith Richard’s “Life” book which is read by Johnny Deep (yum). This means I have 23 hours of a sexy voice talking about sex, drugs, and rock and roll. I can’t help it, it’s one of my guilty pleasures.

Deals on Everything Christmas.
I always stock up on Christmas decorations and goods after the holiday and put them away for the day I have my own place. This time next year I will be on my own, so I want to be prepared. For years it has been a tradition of mine to at least buy a few ornaments to put away for the future. I could easily fill a tree with my own collection now. So exciting.

The best purchase was the “Kissing Ball.” My family already owned one and it just so happens to be my favorite piece of decoration in our house. It’s so simple yet stunning… so when I found one at Pier One for only $4, I couldn’t check out fast enough. Love it.
My rough & tough hockey fighting boyfriend.
During last night’s game, he got in a little scuffle that I am not going to lie was kind of hot. It’s funny to see him get in fights on the ice because he is hands down the nicest, most gentle boy around. Sorry but if you play dirty, he will get you.

I also love that last night he switched out his old white laces in his skates to the light blue laces I got him in his stocking this Christmas. Now his laces and jersey match perfectly…and bring out his baby blue eyes. So damn cute.

Learned how to drive stick.
On Christmas day, the boy picked me up to go to his house for the holiday except we made a pit stop at our high school’s parking lot. He just opened his door and said, “Okay baby, let’s teach you how to drive stick.” I stalled only twice, but I successfully went from 1st to 2nd then 3rd while driving around the abandoned lot. Check this off the bucket list! I can’t thank the boy enough for his patience and trust that I wouldn’t destroy his car. Its now been 2 weeks of me driving us around town. {Stalling at the top of my driveway every time... Whoops}
Buying tickets to a Miami hockey game.In two weeks, the boy and I will be headed up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to watch my beloved Miami Redhawks take on the Lake Superior State Lakers. We got seats on the glass right next to the Miami bench, so I am sure I will be the WORST date ever as I drool over the boys as they take their shifts on the ice. I have already apologized to the boyfriend for this ahead of time.

Last but definitely  not least...
Still enjoying all of my Christmas presents from the boy.

Ohmygoodness, I tried to learn stick last year and was driving from one parking lot to the next and missed my turn and ended up panicking on a real road! So congrats for learning--I'm jealous of your success!
