What I'm Loving...

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you know this past week has largely been made up of car shenanigans. Blah. I think that sums it up.
Here's what I'm loving:

Yeah, it never looks like this in Alabama, but so far, this winter has been especially mild. I can't say random 70 degree days are upsetting to me at all. Now if winter arrives in March, or April, that will be a different story.

The Help
I saw the movie when it came out, but just got around to reading the book on my Nook. Even though I did it backwards, I definitely think the movie did the book justice and I enjoyed both. It's an easy read, plus the movie is nominated at the Oscars. Yeah I'm not sure why that matters, but I threw it in there.

Slatkin & Co. Cinnamon and Clove Buds
This is the last of my "winter-y" candles and while I'm looking forward to spring scents, I'm glad I still have this one left. I always love anything with cinnamon and this isn't any exception.

Grace Potter & the Nocturnals - Apologies
He said it's crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
That I didn't figure it out before
And now it's too late for a soliloquy
It's way too late for dignity
It's time for apologies
I've had 2 Grace Potter & the Nocturnals albums on iTunes for a long time now, and I'm still constantly falling in love with one of the songs. This one has been on repeat for weeks now and I don't think I'll get tired of it anytime soon. 

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

I haven't seen or read The Help (fail), but want to do both.

I also eagerly anticipate you winning the car battle and/or slapping a car guy with your handbag. He'll totally deserve it.

Right now I'm loving that it's already Wednesday. YAHOOOOO!!!

"Yeah, I'm not sure why that matters, but I threw it in there." Haha. I read the book first and saw the movie and I thought it was all done perfectly.

I'm actually starting to realise I'm going to miss winter. But the exciting thing is that next winter I get married... where I intend to have snow and cinnamon scented candles galore! =)

Oooohhh I love Grace Potter and the Nocturnals! Car troubles are the worst... but the good news is hopefully it will be over soon!

I am so sad that we never really had a proper winter here - I love winter so much!

Blah is a good word for it–I hope it's done with sooner rather than later, and that you can call it a victory!

I'm loving Paris tea and tissues with aloe right now–colds are pretty blah, too.

I'm so glad you read The Help! I loved both but felt that the book had more emotion - I literally cried and laughed while reading, something I never do, but wasn't really having the same feelings in the movie. Maybe I just knew what to expect?

Lately I'm loving the Civil Wars, can we say 'on repeat'?? Love, I say!!

We're still making our way through our Yankee Candle holiday scents!

I'm loving the weather today but wish we would've had more of a winter. I have too many cute sweaters to wear.
