What I'm Loving Wednesday...minor accomplishments.

Well it was actually a very successful day at the water park with my kiddos. I was in a super grumpy mood from the minute I opened my eyes and saw that it was rainy and gloomy outside. I then spent the next 2 hours crossing my fingers, toes, arms and eyes thinking about what a fortunate event this just might be and that I might get to skip out on this whole debacle of a field trip after all. No. Such. Luck. My friends.

Oh well, as these things tend to go it actually ended up being a perfectly sunny 75 once we ventured an hour outside of the city, the kids had the time of their life, and I got to work on my tan, all whilst practicing my counting 1-16 over and over and over. Super, stressed out mama bear.

Minor accomplishment, ok major no one drowned, I kept my sanity and I can now check off "water park" on the summer field trip list!

I'm loving that I ordered my MOH/Bridesmaid dress for roomies wedding in Sept. It's pretty much the hottest thing I've bought for myself in a while. I'm totally in love with the fact that I will for sure be rocking it long after the I Do's and, when all is said and done we're going to be one good lookin bridal party. Just sayin.

I'm loving that Mr. Jones and I are celebrating our anniversary this weekend, 3 years (2nd time around) I'll go into that story one day but all you really need to know is that we've known each other for going on 10, dated for 2 in college and 3 years ago lightening struck twice, this time for the long haul.

Our 1st photos together, 3 years ago, about 2 weeks after we decided we couldn't live another moment without trying to drive the other one crazy. Ha. I kid.
I love this man with everything I have. Happy anniversary babe.

He truly makes me the happiest I've ever been and I am so proud of us and what we've accomplished as a couple. I can't wait to celebrate with a little dinner and Chris Botti and the SF Symphony on Friday night! Yay for fun date nights out!

Chris Botti, the San Francisco Symphony, Mr. swoon.

I'm also loving that my little big brother will be back in the Bay Area for the 1st time since my family moved to NYC last summer.

That's Luke on the left! Such a cutie pie!!!!

He's promised to stay with me, his suuupppperrr cool and totally not lame dorky older sister, at least 2 nights! I can't wait to see him, I'm the oldest, he's the youngest, and we're the most alike, go figure. I love him to death and can't wait to harass the heck out of him when he's here!

Per usual there is always so much more when you really sit down to think about what it is you're loving about life. Even when things seem pretty bad in one area there's always a flip side. Thanks Jamie for hosting wilw, it's a great way to really reflect on and appreciate all of the major and minor milestones and accomplishments in life every week!

XOXO- Miss V.
