2.22.12 - What I'm Loving Wednesday (The color edition)

I have something to admit to you.

I almost didn't do this post today.  I am tired, I have a cold, and my sneezes are explosive.  (You should see the look of panic on my students' faces as I scrunch my face up in sneeze-preparation... they know that if my hand/sleeve/tissue is not fast enough they better be the heck out of dodge.  I actually had one guy drop to the floor and cover his head as a sneeze was coming.  Poor kids.)

But then I thought, "THIS is why I need to do this."  And I am so glad I did.  Running through my brain for things I am happy about right now kind of put that whole woe-is-me bit to rest.  Not to mention the sun is shining.  Always wonderful.

This is what I am loving today:

1} I spent the weekend with my grandpa.  Old people are generally cute and sweet, and my grandpa is doubly so.  I haven't seen him for five years, so this was a great blessing.  Last time I was there my grandma was still alive and things have definitely changed, but he is going strong and we had a great time -- not to mention many trips to Denny's and Cracker Barrel ;)

2} Facebook.  Seriously.  It allowed me to reconnect with my one of my two childhood best friends even after we moved far apart from each other.  This girl and I were so close that we really believed we were cousins, and she is the closest thing I have ever had as far as older-sister-ness goes.  SO incredibly amazing to reconnect this weekend after twenty years!!!

3} Butternut squash in browned butter ravioli.  Had it this weekend and  I am going to try to recreate the recipe sometime soon.  Now I am on the quest for the perfect pear and arugula flat bread AND this.  Not complaining, though...

4} COLOR!  For example, this wall in NYC that I found the is weekend (the capstone of our East Coast weekend)...

5} And the mere fact that I got to see New York City for the first time in my life!  Once again, love the colors, even if it is found in the yellow of a taxi cab.

6} Colorful decor...

7} Colorful food.  These dishes are brought to you by Foodie Crush.  Oh how I love this collection of amazing recipes and beautiful food photography!  I am not there yet, but I will be.  Just give me some time.  In the meantime, I think I have some ideas for dinner this week :)

(As always, click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.)

And, of course, my man.  He is my best travel buddy and I love having adventures with him!

(That's us with a very teeny-tiny Statue of Liberty behind us.)

Happy Wednesday, Folks!
