What I’m Loving Wednesday…Back to Basics


January 18, 2012

I have yet to participate in one of my favorite weeklies for quite some time, so I thought I’d take a chance to talk randomness to get me (and hopefully some of you) through hump day this week! Isn’t it funny how the slightest difference can make a big change?To jumpstart my workouts, I downloaded some new(ish) tunes and they are making it much easier to hit the gym in the morning. Some new additions I am loving lately are:

  • LMFAO: Sexy and I Know It
  • Free Sol: Fascinated (features JT/Timbaland and it’s AWESOME!)
  • Chris Brown: My Last
  • New Boyz: Better with the Lights Off
  • Flo Rida: Good Feeling
  • Rihanna: We Found Love
Speaking of LOVEly fun, I was contacted by a producer from TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” calling all brides in and around the Nashville area for a chance to be featured on a new television series called Randy to the Rescue. Randy-the infamous icon from NYC’s Kleinfeld-is going to be jumping around from town to town to help brides find their dream wedding gown, and he’s headed to Nashville on March 11th!! If you want to participate, or know someone who would be fabulous to feature, email randytotherescue@gmail.com with your name, age, location, and wedding date. P.S. they are also making stops in San Diego, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Cincinnati, Boston, and Minneapolis so be on the lookout!

I got my new laptop this weekend and absolutely love it! So nice having an actual “home computer” that isn’t Jeff’s work laptop so now I can keep up with personal communications and more business planning…I have a feeling this is going to get lots of use in March when I’m confined to the house a bit more ;).

I think everyone else has commented on the red carpet fashions from the Golden Globes this past weekend, so I’ll save the separate obligatory post…however, my favorite looks from the night were Elle McPherson, Jessica Alba, and Chalize Theron who would absolutely win best dressed if I was involved in Fashion Police. That woman can do NO wrong!

Other things I am loving this week…
Bright and bold spring fashions jumping out on the world wide web-hello color!

Another new episode of Revenge tonight
Sweet and crafty Valentine’s Day gift ideas
And, our church started a new daily reading plan, Project 3:45, to help our members read the Bible…3 minutes and 45 seconds is the average time it takes to read one chapter. I started the program yesterday and am so excited to make this a worthy addition to my goals! 
  1. LOVE Revenge! What about the ending of the last episode?! Charlotte & Emily sisters! Can't wait to watch tonight!

  2. And thanks for the tip on the dress! I was worried it wouldn't be as cute on as it is in the picture!

  3. Rachel says:

    I saw your tweet the other day about new gym songs and almost asked you what your faves were, so I am quite glad you posted them this morning! I always need a good pump up song to get me motivated to burn some cals! Hope you're having a fab day!

  4. Nicole Marie says:

    I love Free Sol. He's from Memphis. They used to play at Newby's here in town every Tuesday the summer of 2004. I never missed a show!

  15. That Randy to the Rescue show sounds fun!! I also love Charlize and am so making those Valentines you posted!

  18. YAY for your new PC! Exciting!

    Revenge is going to be ridiculous tonight!

    PS – you know how you did a post on Christmas gifts ideas? You should totally do a post on Vday gift ideas! I feel like there is a lot of pressure on newlyweds to make Vday amazing! 🙂
