What I’m Loving Today #3

We had a very busy weekend moving my daughter into her new apartment with all new roommates to start her sophomore year of college.  She is living with three boys this year!  That can be both good and bad.  The boys seem like nice kids.  One of them is from Africa, one from Bermuda, and one American.  The American boy went to culinary school, so hopefully between he and Delaney they will have some great family dinners- she loves to cook too!  I’m sure the other two will much appreciate it.  I think girls can sometimes get along better with boys, and I’m not against her living with boys.  Hopefully they will be good to her and protect her.  Trust me, they were all warned! Ha!  Now that I have told you a little about what’s going on in my life right now, let’s talk about some things that I am loving today!  Sound fun? 

Let’s start with this soup.  We love Panera, and we go there a lot.  We went there yesterday after spending the day moving Delaney in, and I had this delicious Lemon Chicken Orzo soup.  Serious yumminess going on in this bowl.  I need the recipe!

This is what I ‘m reading right now.  The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.  This is book three of the series by Stieg Larsson, and I loved the first two.  This one so far does not disappoint. 

I just bought this tank extender.  I haven’t worn it yet, but I imagine that it is going to get a lot of use when I start wearing legging more often.  It will look good under so. many. things. 

Speaking of clothes, this skirt!  Red is my favorite color, and I want it sooo bad, but I can’t afford it at $148.  So I am watching hoping it will go on sale.  Actually I just checked again, and I could get 25% off of it right now, but that still doesn’t bring it down to where I can feel good paying for it.  J Crew is too expensive!  But I love their clothes!  I added the link underneath in case you want it and it is in your budget.  And if you click the link and purchase it I will get a small commission, so please do so, maybe then I will be able to afford it, ha!

And if you have clothes (hopefully you all do) then you have laundry, am I right?  something I never do laundry without ever since I discovered them is these Downy Unstoppables.  They make clothes smell so fresh and clean!

I recently ran out of lotion, and decided to try something new.  And I really like it!  It is very moisturizing and has a great smell.  It will be great for my dry skin this winter.  It is so creamy and luxurious that I don’t have to use as much of it as I usually do.

These closet doublers are a life saver for Delaney’s closet at college.  It literally doubles her hanging space.  I bought two sets for her last summer, and we are using them again in her new apartment.

Our desk pad was shot, it was three years old, and had seen better days, so I recently ordered this one.  Nothing like getting our desk freshened up for the start of a new year!

I have never shared this with you guys before, but this Tropical Trail mix is my very favorite snack, and I can’t live without it!  I buy at least two bags every time I go to Walmart.  The nuts, the dried fruit, the salty and sweet makes the perfect combination.

And that’s a wrap for my third post of this new series- What I’m loving today!  I hope you like it!  I thought it would be a fun way to bring you some cool stuff.  do you have something that you are loving right now that you want to share with me, or that you think I will like?  If so, tell me about it in the comments, I love trying new things!  Have a great week!
