21 Things I'm LOVING Right Now!

  1. Cheers. I know, I know. This show is almost as old as I am, but it is hilarious! It takes me back to my childhood every time I watch it. And, come on, who doesn't love Sam "Mayday" Malone? It's a Laugh Out Loud good time.
  2. Taylor Swift. No surprise there, she has been my favorite musician for several years now.
  3. Ed Sheeran. He's incredible and I could listen to his voice sing love ballads for hours. Oh wait, I have every one of his albums, so I HAVE listened to his voice for hours. Haha.
  4. Taco Bell. I can't help it. Old habits die hard.
  5. Grey's Anatomy. I've followed along with Meredith Grey's story since I came home from a trip to Seattle back in 2009 and my roommate was watching it in the living room. I instantly fell in love with Denny Duquette (she was in season 2, I believe) and had to start the series over from the beginning. I've watched the entire series multiple times now. Can we talk for a second about how much I miss Alex Karev? #Heartbroken.
  6. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy perfume. It's been my signature scent since 2012 and I have received countless compliments about it. Tip: You can frequently find it at TJ Maxx for far less than you would at a department store!
  7. Diet Coke. Forget coffee; this is my black gold.
  8. My Dogs. They are my "fur babies", and the best part of my day, every single day. They should really be #1 on this list.
  9. Prosecco & Champagne. Dry, sparkling wine is my "go to" drink choice, whether I'm out with friends for girls night, on a date, or relaxing at home on a Friday night after a long week. Pair it with some red fruit (or a scoop of sorbet if you're feeling fancy) and you've got a delicious after dinner treat!
  10. Brunch. It's my favorite meal of the week and one of my favorite ways to spend time with friends. It's an excuse to get fancy in the morning, eat delicious food, and catch up on our week over mimosas.
  11. Zia Marie. It's an Italian restaurant in Virginia Beach and my favorite dish is called Chicken Marie. Chicken, penne, broccoli, in garlicky white wine butter sauce. I mean, it's literally the food that got me to like broccoli!
  12. Mentos. The fruity kind. Especially the pink ones. YUM!
  13. Paperback books. I have loved to read since I was a child. Fiction, non-fiction, autobiographies, true crime; WHATEVER! I love it all! I haven't been able to get into reading on tablets though. There's something about curling up in bed, under a bunch of cozy blankets, with a paperback that I find relaxing.
  14. Writing. I have been writing a fictional story for a couple of years now. I haven't quite got the ending figured out yet, but I am getting close! I love sitting down with a glass of wine and writing the dialogue between the main characters, and coming up with creative ways to weave storylines in and out. Maybe one day, when it's finished, I'll publish it.
  15. Eucalyptus Rain. This is my favorite scent at Bath & Body Works currently!!! It is such a calming scent! I have the candles, the room spray and the wallflower plug-ins!
  16. Red Lipstick. Maybe it's because I grew up with a grandma who always wore red lipstick. Maybe it's Taylor Swift's influence on my life. Maybe it's because red is my favorite color and I think anyone who wears red lipstick automatically looks confident and fierce! I'm not sure. It's part of my signature look now, though.\
  17. Peonies. My great-grandmother, Susan, always grew pink peonies in her garden. They are so beautiful and every time I smell them, it takes me back to my childhood. Tip: They also look beautiful in bouquets!
  18. Jason Momoa. I don't think this one requires any explanation. LOL
  19. Cake Pops. Specifically the birthday cake flavored cake pops from Starbucks. TAKE MY MONEY!
  20. Tiffany Blue. Red is my favorite, but come on... Is there a more iconic color than Tiffany Blue?
  21. This Is Us. Best. Show. EVER! Who is your favorite Pearson? Mine is Jack. <3 Then Randall. <3
