What I’m Loving This Week

May 25, 2012

1. Fridays!

Oh wait, I have always loved Fridays.  And really who hasn’t?

2. Strawberry margaritas.

I made a simple syrup by boiling strawberries with equal parts water and sugar then strained the liquid out, mixed it with some tequila, triple sec, lime juice and ice and voila, an amazing margarita. 

I won’t lie, my mom, my sister and I each had 1.5 margaritas on Tuesday night and I think we were all feeling it.  #lightweights

3. Dinners with my family.

As if you didn’t already know that.

Why do all the dinner pictures I take at my parents’ look better than any I take at home?

4. Purple nails.

And no, not Rockies purple because I’m kind of basically ashamed of our team right now.  Kind of.

5. Ducks.

And not just because I got a total kick out of seeing one floating around in my apartment swimming pool, but also because the duck family floating down the stream next to the path I run on was completely adorable on Sunday evening.

Okay, it was most because of the duck in the pool.

6. Spring roses.

My parents sold the house I grew up in a couple years ago and although there are many many things I miss about that house, my mom’s rose garden is pretty high on the list.  Seeing roses still makes me smile.

Even if they aren’t the same roses my mom would “say hi to” in the morning at our house.

7. This song.

And seriously, you should take the time to watch that weirdo music video.

Things I’m not loving this week:

  • colds that sneak up days before you have to run two races in one weekend
  • bowling a 50…
  • and temperatures that aren’t in the 80’s

But I’m willing to put that all aside because it’s a 3.5 day weekend and that cancels out all bad things.

Happy Memorial Day weekend!
