What I'm Loving

I'm linking up with Jamie again this week :)

{1} I'm LOVING that our sweet dog, Hank, turns 10 today! We don't have kids, so he really is the light of our life! For more, see the post below :) Tonight I'm baking him meaty happy birthday cupcakes. 

{2} I'm LOVING that today is my Friday! Tomorrow we take off for St. Louis for a couple of days --- it's work-related, so the hotel is paid for! And we ended up getting a killer deal at the Hilton near the ballpark downtown thanks to Hotwire --- I can't wait! Any suggestions for sites to see while we're there?

{3} I'm LOVING that my friend Justin, who recently returned from Afghanistan, will receive his Purple Heart on Sunday and there's going to be a big party and barbecue with friends to celebrate.

{4} Tonight is Survivor Night! My uncle and some of his friends are the biggest Survivor fans and have watch parties and dinner every night it airs. We always want to attend, but don't want to go out the night before work. So since we're off tomorrow, we're going --- and chicken and dumplings are on the menu! Yummy!

{5} I'm LOVING that our good friend, Shaun, closed on his house yesterday. We went to see it last night and you can tell he and his three kiddos love it! I'm so proud of my friend :) Now the question is, how long will it take to clean and unpack? 

{6} I'm LOVING that we've been invited to our first bonfire of the season this weekend. I just love hanging out with friends around the fire, drinking a few beers :)

{7} And of course, I'm always LOVING this man. Can't wait for our little getaway!
