What I'm Loving Wednesday

It's Wednesday ... and the first day of my vacation - woooohoooo!! 
I originally was going to take a week off of all social media - a mini break from facebook, twitter, and blogger -- but I think the distraction of What I'm Loving Wednesday link up with Jamie and focusing on some of the things I'm loving this week will give me some happiness (it's been kinda rough for me these past few days).

I just finished the 3rd book in the Hunger Games series...and the verdict is:  I LOVED them. 

I'm actually sad that it's over. Is there any chance of a 4th book? I really liked the characters, imagery and storyline. I'm really hoping the movie is as good as the books.  I recommend this book to all my bookie and non-bookie friends. It's well worth it! 

I'm LOVING that I'm making progress on my baby shower gift that I posted about a few weeks ago here

I ended up having to combine two of the patterns from the list I was debating about in that post. The original one I had picked -- once I started it I didn't like the look of the front loop and the back loop. And the second one was all single crochet and I think that would take tooo long! I should be finishing this project up within the next couple days. I'll post finished photos as soon as it's done! 

I'm LOVING that I finally treated myself to my special do-dad running watch:
