What I'm Loving...

How does the week feels like it crawls on, yet Friday always seems to jump out and surprise me? Like, oh, it's the weekend AGAIN? Not saying it's a bad thing, but Monday and Tuesday never seem to go by fast, then Wednesday and Thursday turn into a blur or something. Maybe it's just me.
Here's what I'm loving:

Mad Men
Oh my goodness. I'm OBSESSED with this show. Obsessed. I haven't seen every single episode so I feel the need to catch up, but I can do that I suppose. Season 4 premieres on Sunday on AMC at 10/9c. Can't. Wait. Anyone else love the theme song, too? Yeah it's my ring tone on my BlackBerry now :)

L'Oreal Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser
I somewhat randomly decided to switch up my skincare routine a few weeks ago, and this was the cleanser I decided on at Target. I admit I thought the little scrubber they include on the packaging was a gimmick, but it actually works so I'm still using it. The cleanser smells good, doesn't irritate my skin, and leaves it feeling very refreshed. I don't remember what I paid, but it was Target so it wasn't much. Consider me happy. Might do a more thorough review on this later if there's interest. We'll see!

Shrimp Quesadilla
*this isn't a shrimp quesadilla, but that's oddly difficult to find a picture of
If you don't know me you're probably thinking "That's an extremely weird thing to put on a list of what you're loving, you freak" and if you do know me you're probably thinking "Yeah, that makes sense. You had one the other night, didn't you?" Yes. I had one on Tuesday. And I have one almost every week. Because we go out for Mexican almost once a week. Hey, it used to be more but we exercise the world's smallest amount of restraint now. Oh, and we don't live in an apartment across the street from a favorite Mexican restaurant anymore. Yeah, that probably explains it better.

Guitar Hero 5
I like pretty much any music related game we have for the Wii. This, Just Dance, the American Idol game... I mean, we don't own that. Anyway. First of all, they're just fun. Second of all, I can beat Jared at music related games. Now that just adds to the enjoyment. Guitar Hero 5 has some really good songs too like Plug In Baby, Ex-Girlfriend, Smells Like Teen Spirit, What I Got - so many good ones, plus you can sing so, why wouldn't you love this? Exactly.

In my last What I'm Wearing... post (which so many of you left amazing and awesome comments on - thank you!) it was suggested that I do a house post. Any interest in that? What would you want to see? Kind of an overview of each room? Let me know please! :)

Are any of you lovelies doing What I'm Loving... posts of your own? You totally should. Mrs. Origami has started doing them and you guys know I LOVE to read them, so leave a link in the comments if you're doing them, too! If you want to and haven't started yet, what are you waiting for? It's fun. Promise. I wouldn't lie.

Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

I'm loving sleep -- on the rare occasion that I get enough! Also loving some quality chick lit and am on a serious Sour Patch Kids kick -- it's bad.

I love Mad Men...so good!! I can't wait for the new season to start!!

And I'd love house posts. I'm always interested in new decorating ideas :)

this free bird said...

I have to think about what I'm loving for a second b/c I'm still peeing my pants laughing over your aggravated mayhem comment!! ahahaha

boy did i ever need that. whew!

Thanks so much for your kind words and wishes too. Means a lot at a tough time. So far so good.

Katie - can I just say I love your skin? You have the best skin! I might need to get the cleanser you mentioned - totally do a review. Would love to read/hear.

I guess I need to jump on the Mad Men bandwagon. Everyone says it's so good. Can I catch on without having seen any?

K. What I"m loving right now:

-Felicity Re-runs (God save those dvd's they're my happy place)
-Big Love (can't get enough of that show - 2nd happy place)
-plums are in season!! love plums

If I do a what I love post I'll most def let you know. Great idea!

Krystal said...

your comment on my post made me laugh :) and look at us all on the same don draper wave length!
and also...i think doing an i'm loving post would be wicked fun, i'll work on it!

Jessica said...

I'm so excited for the return of Mad Men!

Right now, I'm lovin' fresh berries and days on the lake!

mrs. origami said...

I always thought Mad Men looked like a cool show but have never watched it..maybe I should. It'll just be another one of those shows to add to the list. (like tudors, 24, rome, six feet under, all of which are now gone for good.. :( )

I think you should do a house post! I would love to see each of the rooms, I am sure you do an awesome job decorating and all of that so I am looking forward to seeing the house post!

OneCraftyFox said...

I totally can not wait for the new season of Mad Men to begin!! The tune is so catchy :) Happy weekend!

Jess said...

Oh my gosh I LOVE shrimp quesadillas too! Definitely one of my favs!


Closet Fashionista said...

YAYY Guitar Hero!! :D

Lynzy said...

Isabel said...

mmm mexican food!

Jammer said...

Don Draper is just so dreamy (minus the cheating thing) haha. Happy weekend!


Rachel said...

ok a few things.
one, you have an awesomely heinous amount of make up of which i am so so jealous.
two, thanks for commenting on my outfit post!
i am no fashion maven so i was a little nervous about it but like i said i'm an offiicciaal ifb (i know its not an official type of thing lol)so i felt i had to keep my end of the bargain.
finally i guess i need to take the plunge and get into Mad Men. I've been avoiding it like a 12 year old avoids a cute boy she has a crush on. I need to stop. :)

Valerie said...

I'm also loving mexican food, especially nachos! I'm loving that I don't have any plans this weekend! Have a great one.


Ashley said...

Ohmygosh shrimp quesadillas sound sooooo good! I've already made the BF promise to a date night this weekend at our fav Mexican restaurant, and now I know what I'll be ordering :)


*rachelwears said...

oooooo i love quesadillas and eat them all the time with rice & melted cheese with onion mmmmmmmm!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I wish I had started watching Mad Men...feel like it's too far into the seasons now :(

Shelley Ann said...

i tried to get into mad men so many times but then i would forget what episodes ive seen and which ones i havent so i gave up :( everyones talking about how good it is so i might have to try and get back into it!

Tayebug said...

I have yet to watch Madmen, but I keep hearing about it and will probably have to start watching it!! Maybe I'll get the DVD and start at the beginning.

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Oooh...Mexican Food!! My true love!haha...I'm actually thinking of going to one tonight! xxoxoxoxoo

Couture Carrie said...

I totally worship Mad Men!
Fab post!


Kristin said...

Mmmmmmm. A shrimp dilla sounds SO good!

Bren said...

I feel like the only person who doesn't watch Mad Men. I've actually seen one episode, and it was really good, but I had no idea what was going on. I should rent the dvd's and get caught up.

Right now I'm loving:

- my favorite WiFi cafe. They play the BEST music, and they make a vanilla latte that's to die for! (they make their own vanilla!)
- Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Cambon
-seeing all of the Fall fashions, creeping into the stores. I look forward to planning my Fall wardrobe all year!

skinny jeans for women

Thin pants are a style of denim pants that have straight legs and have a tendency to fold around the lower legs. They are called thin pants since they give you a dainty figure. This style was begun in the 1980s to make a retro-punk look. This style woke up again in late 2006 by Avril Lavigne in one of her music recordings. They are typically utilized for a gothic-punk look or retroand hip-bounce.
