What I'm Loving Wednesday!

It's Wednesday...yeah for Hump Day..the weekend can't come soon enough...I sound like a broken record every Wednesday but Wednesday gets me so excited that Friday is only two days away!'s also time for What I'm Loving Wednesdays with!

So what am I loving this Wednesday....

I've held off but I've got Royal Wedding Fever! Maybe because Prince William is somewhat around my age, or maybe it's because I love the story of the commoner girl nabbing the Prince and becoming Her Royal Highness! I'm dying to see her dress..hoping it's not this old lady frilly deal and can't wait to hear the details. I'm not sure I'll be able to haul my butt out of bed at 4am..thank god for TIVO!

I'm also loving that 16 and Pregnant is back on MTV...I didn't get to into Teen Mom 2 (if you're, this chick watches really bad're absolutely right!) 16 and Pregnant is my guilty pleasure and I love to TIVO it on Tuesday nights and watch it on Wednesdays!

Although it might not seem like it...I do not watch 17 hours of television a day. I just selectively watch really bad tv and can do it in about an hour thanks to Tivo! When the bad tv watching is of my favorite things to do is curl up with my Kindle. I bought it on a whim after Christmas and have been having a love affair with it ever much that it was Mr. Allan's Valentine's Day gift (insert your awww here).

But..what I'm really when Mr. Allan is home..we turn off the tv, go into the bedroom ...(get your mind out of the gutter)...and just relax and read. It sounds cheesy, but just turning off the tv, putting our cellphones aside, unwinding and reading is my new favorite thing to do and I wish we did it waaaayyyyy more often!

I also love that the weather is FINALLY warming up around here! Mr. Allan spent some time raking and cleaning up the yard (my job is to make it pretty!). Daffodils are everywhere and I love it! Nothing says spring like a nice bright yellow daffodil

and lastly...I have a huge hodge podge of loves this week...but I'm loving fresh Ginger! I bought some to make this Ginger Apple HERE for the recipe and post.
Ginger's a little weird looking but I love the smell once I start to peel it. Besides using it for the recipe, I used fresh ginger, a little bit of olive oil, and some soy sauce for a marinade on both pork chops and chicken and it was amazing!
Hope you have a great Wednesday!


  1. I can't wait to see Kate's dress! It's going to be amazing!!

  2. I cannot wait to see her dress either! My roommate and I were talking about that this morning... We hope it isnt a wreck! We would hate to see her get ripped about it!

    There is nothing like just BEING with your man. TV off, Cell phones OFF and just be beside each other. Priceless. Hope that never gets old for you!

    Stopped by from WILW! Thanks for sharing what you're loving today!

  3. Great things you are loving today! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! I love my kindle too!!!!

  4. I haven't gotten into 16 and Pregnant or Teen Mom this season! I'll have to catch the reruns.

  5. I wrote my WILW last night and just posted it, and one of my "loves" was the Royal Wedding too!

  6. I watch 16 & pregnant too. I liked Teen Mom better than Teen Mom 2. Although I like Corey & Leah from TM2

  7. I am so excited about the royal wedding as well!!!

  8. I am DVRing about 20 shows Friday morning because I'm not sure which one the actual wedding is and I DO NOT want to miss it! lol

  9. Oh my gosh - 16 and Pregnant is totally my guilty pleasure! I'm a little behind on the new season though. I've only seen the episode about the girl who had a twin sister. If you like 16 and Pregnant you will love Teen Mom so watch out - it is totally addictive! Love your blog - I'm your newest follower :)
