Things I Love Thursday


I’ve seen Things I Love Thursdays pop up on other blogs before, so I thought I’d rise up to the occasion and share some things I love with you.

Right now, I’m loving …

… the fact that I’ve mistaken the State Fair fireworks for rumbling thunder a few days in a row, until I realized that the “thunder” always happened right at 10 o’clock. Oopsies.

Groupon, LivingSocial, and such  for the fantastic deals they provide. I got tickets for a baseball game tonight (including access to the sportsbar and a souvenir baseball cap) for $16. YES!

Nan Lawson‘s art. It’s been popping up all over the place (I’ve seen it being mentioned on a couple of websites now and I can’t even remember where I’ve seen it first), but it’s definitely worth taking a peek: check out those awesome prints.

…  my first hot cup of (creamy milk-) coffee in the morning. Makes my day!

…  my new little blender that I bought off Amazon this week. I am looking forward to making smoothies, blended coffees and all other kinds of blended drinks.

… Sudoku puzzles. I swear, it’s addicting. It totally appeals to my nerdy side and it helps me wind down before I go to bed. Some people read before they sleep, I do Sudoku puzzles. Go figure!

… Justine’s Secret Pal project. I think it’s an awesome idea to connect with other bloggers other than through their blogs.

… the opportunity  to take a gazillion (hopefully) breath-taking photos when I go to Hawaii next week.

What are you loving right now?

On that note, I have a little announcement to make, so stop by here tomorrow!

  1. Nathan and I do sudoku before bed too :) He does the hard ones and I’m still on the easiest of easy … I’m jealous of your trip to Hawaii! You better take a gazillion photos :)

  2. I’m loving Anneliese right now, even though I am worried about her. I’ll be happy when it is over and both she and her baby puppy are well.

  3. I live very close to Cal Expo and the same thing happens every night. After two weeks, you would think I would have stopped freaking out at the fireworks!
    .-= Hilly´s last blog ..That’s Alright Because I Like The Way It Hurts… =-.

  4. I love Sudokus, too, but I could never do them before sleeping. I’ll end up dreaming about how to solve them the fastest way possible. Creepy, I know.

    Happy Friday and have a great trip to Hawaii.

  5. Oooh! Announcements are always exciting :) I just checked out the artwork and it is lovely! Also, yay for blenders. You’ll have to join me on Green Monsters! I’m addicted :)

  6. Hope you have a great trip to Hawaii!

    I am loving…the fact that it’s Friday and I leave for the Florida Keys on Sunday!!!

  7. I’m loving that it’s been a lazy Sunday. I’m loving the cool weather outside that giving me a much needed break from temps well over 100. I’m loving summer. And I’m loving all the plans I’ve made in the past few days for vacations.

  8. I have only used Groupon once, I bought a coupon to order contact lenses (paid €19 for a €50 coupon). Sadly they don’t have that many interesting offers for Heidelberg, mostly just online stores. I hope they have more for Munich (or wherever I move after that).
    That secret pal idea sounds so lovely, but I think I first need to get on top of several things in my life before adding on another project!
