me : weekly loves

Hi y'all! HAPPY FRIDAY! Yay! 

This week, I love a lot of random things...

I love that my first re-designed mobile is finally listed in my shop! It's been a long time in the works but I finally got one listed. Hopefully I can get some more clouds sewn up this weekend and list a few other color choices next week. :) 
I've been working on a new, completely different design lately and I'm so excited to get it listed... hopefully I can get that done soon. I love seeing things go from my head, to sketches in my journal, to an actual production. What a wonderful journey!

I'm definitely not a professional photographer, but I love dabbling in photography and I love that these two girls are always willing (and sometime extremely giggly) subjects! :)

I love fortune cookies. I'm not crazy about the cookie part, but I love opening them up and reading the fortune. I also love that this "fortune" fits me perfectly right now as I do have a ton of new ideas bouncing around in my head. 

I love this new (to me) gum. Joey picked it out and I'm glad he did. It's yummy! Plus, I feel a connection to Shaun White as he is a fellow ginger. 
Which reminds me... the other day we were waiting to be seated at Olive Garden and this guy was coming in to work and he was a red-head. Joey then asked me if there was a red-head wave or something, like motorcyclists have their own wave, red-heads should have their own wave?? I told him that was ridiculous! 

I couldn't very well show him the red-head wave if he isn't a red-head, now could I?


I love trying new recipes. I also love Olive Garden's house salad dressing. I seriously agree to go to the Olive Garden more for their salad than for anything else. I looked online for a copycat salad dressing recipe, found one that had good reviews and gave it a whirl. It was a failure. But not a total failure I suppose because I did eat my salad still and Joey said he actually liked the dressing. But it didn't taste like Olive Garden's dressing at all. 

It's okay, I love trying new recipes, even if they don't turn out right. Plus, I found a different recipe that also has excellent reviews that I'm going to try. And while searching for copycat recipes I read in a couple of places that you can actually buy Olive Garden's dressing at the restaurant. I've never heard of this, but it's something I'm definitely going to look in to if this next recipe fails. 


I've got a busy weekend planned. I am getting my haircut today at 5, then afterwards we're going to a friend's house for dinner. Tomorrow I plan to do laundry, clean the house, and try to get some sewing done as well. Sunday... more of the same, plus church. Monday we have monthly visits with the caseworkers and that night we have our Senior Banquet at church and I've got two casseroles to make. It's a busy life, but I sure do love it!

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Have a great weekend Regina! That salad looks yummy.

  2. Oh Regina! If only I could eat salad. It is what I miss the most since I have gotten the lapband and salad does not agree with me. Too much ruffage - I guess :o)

    Still waiting to see your new hairstyle.


  3. That mobile is so cute! Can't wait to see the new design you're working on! Sounds like you've got a busy weekend ahead! My plans include resting, napping, watching movies, napping... Did I say that already? Haha. I'm a little under the weather, so I'm using this weekend to try to recover. Can't wait to see your new hairdo!! Have a great weekend girl! :)

  4. that mobile is absolutely adorable. that salad looks so great, i love the Olive Garden salad. you did have a busy weekend planned, hope everything went smoothly!

  5. It should measure success in arranging deals, not marketing brochures
    or studies Payday loans as far since the freedom from any external control and free competition are concerned, forex is really
    a perfect market.
