What I’m Loving Wednesday!

I don’t normally link up on things like this…
But I thought it would be a fun, easy thing to do this Wednesday.
So I’m linking up with Jamie at This Kind of Love
For What I’m loving Wednesday

I’m loving that I have a husband who will let me sleep in (because he knows it’s something I love) and will take the kiddos just because he loves me. I’m LOVING him for thinking about me and doing that all last week on vacation!!! It was such a gift and he blessed me!

I’m loving MaryKay Ultimate Mascara! I never loved a mascara so much in my life and it’s the best. And no…. I’m not a consultant. ;)

I’m loving that my boys have been great all this week since we got home from vacation. It’s made it easy to get all the laundry done and get the house in order.

I’m loving that so many people signed up for my swap and I’m super excited to see what everyone gets!

I’m loving that it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to organize the swap… Had a few bumps in the road the first day, but since then it has been very easy to manage and organize. (I hope I didn’t just jinx that)

I’m loving that memorial day is this weekend not just because I will have my husband home for a three day weekend (which I love), but also for the fact that our favorite park will have their sprinklers on for the kids to play in.  We will be there most of the summer!

I'm loving my new Tuffo Water-Resistant Outdoor Blanket!!!!  LOVE IT!  Also loving that I paid hardly anything for it, thanks to a gift card ;)
I’m loving how blessed I am to have such a wonderful, hard working husband who makes it possible for me to be a stay at home mom and do fun things with them all summer.

I'm loving that my husband is having such a great time playing softball for the church league and that the boys and I can go to cheer him on every week!  

I’m loving all the amazing ladies out there that speak into my life daily. I’m loving the new friendships I’ve made this past year and all the fellow moms who encourage me and remind me that I’m doing a good job. For so long I thought I didn’t have any friends, but I was so wrong. I am so BLESSED!!!

Lastly…
(I don’t normally talk about my weight on here but I'm pretty proud of myself)
I’m loving that I have lost all my baby weight! Last summer I was 171 and this summer I am back down to 132I'm loving that I fit into my swim suit from two summers ago. I still have lots of toning to go to get my abs back… but a good friend of mine has given me some amazing exercises to help my diastasis recti (the separation of my abdomen muscles). It’s working… because I have a two pack now!
 (Sorry, I wish I had a before and after picture...
from last year to this year.  But I just hated how I looked last year so...
this is what you get.)

You look great and I love your swimsuit! Congratulations on being at pre baby weight!

On a completely different note, I just wanted to thank you for the Redeeming posts, they sparked great conversations in my husband and I and your story has been an encouragement to us both.

You look fantastic. Congrats on losing your "baby weight."

I am excited for a three day weekend, too. My husband works entirely too much, so it will be nice to have him around an extra day.

Last night, I spent a great deal of time reading your story. You really have been through a lot. I am inspired by your courage and your ability to forgive.

Just want to make sure I didn't miss anything with the "swap." We haven't received our partners, right?

Hope you're having a great day!
