Hi there!

Well it's Wednesday and I'm going to link up with Rachel for What I'm Loving Wednesday.. A big shout out to my friend  Jen for getting me started with the WILW.

I'm loving this video of Jenn & Dan's Wedding. Such a beautiful day! I have never seen my daughter SO happy. She's still giddy and loving every moment of every day with her hubby. It warms a mothers heart it does!

I'm loving that I'm almost done with my Campside Shawl! I am jazzed!! I'm just binding off and then I'll block it.

I'm loving that on October 1st, I will count my change! So, back on January 1st of this year, I started saving my pennies. I was going to start with a penny on day 1, then day 2 put in 2 pennies, day 3, 3 etc. Well I know I've mentioned this before that Paul said by the time I get to December, I'm not going to want to be putting $20 a week or so in the pot. So he suggested starting backwards with $3.65. It worked! I started with that on January 1st then I put in $3.64 on the 2nd and $3.63 on the 3rd and so on. Right now I'm down to .94 cents a day and it FEELS GREAT! So I WILL start again on January 1st. I bought a page a day journal and everyday I write the amount I need to put in the jar. So I'm excited for Saturday to get here...

I'm loving that we went to the Indians game. It was fan appreciate night and although we lost and left early, we still had a good time...

I'm loving taking Dory to lunch at Baker's Square...

and then to see the sunflowers at Maria's Field of Hope

I'm loving the Corned Beef Rissoles I made. A recipe from my mom that I just don't make often enough because it's a lot of work. Paul and I love them though and I made a big batch, enough to share a couple and have for dinner another night and then freeze some!

Yum! Super simple recipe: 6 large potatoes (for this recipe I used a 5lb bag), 1 onion chopped, 1 can corned beef, salt & pepper. Boil the potatoes. Mash them but don't use butter or cream. Add chopped onion, corned beef and salt & pepper. Form patties and roll in flour and fry them puppies up! YUM! Oh, I said that already.

I'm loving, a walker bag I made for a lady at the assisted living where I volunteer. The material I found is GORGEOUS! and if I ever make one for myself, I hope to find the same material. It has shiny silver flowers and one of my favorite green! Oh my!

Believe me when I say, I have TONS that I'm loving right now and I can go on and on but I won't. I'll save some for next Wednesday.

What are YOU loving right now?

I'll post again soon. As always...


  1. Hi!! Thanks for linking up! Please feel free to swing by my blog ( and put your blog link on the linkup for others to stop by and visit too! :) I try and do this every week if you want to join us!

    Looks like y'all had fun at the Indians game- I hope y'all are taking care of Napoli- I miss him with the Rangers!

    That bag is super cute! I wish I had the patience to sew. I can kind of cross stitch, but not that well.

    I like that idea with the pennies, I think I might try it next year!!

    Have a great day!
