Aside from suffering through an upper respiratory infection (ick!), this week has been so great! Here's what I'm lovin' this week...
... CHRISTMAS TIME!!! I know it's not even December yet, but the day after Thanksgiving marks my official kickoff of the holiday season every year. We've almost got the house all ready to celebrate (pictures coming soon, I promise!), and I'm digging the Christmas spirit, y'all.
(on that note) ... Peaceful Holidays Station on Pandora. It's mostly instrumental versions of the classics, and it's so... well, peaceful. :)
... this tutorial for beachy waves. I tried this out this morning, and it's a fun twist on the classic curl.
(Pardon my awkward, I-took-this-in-my-office self portrait. And my bad haircut. And let's also gloss over the fact that I'm whiter than Edward Cullen, mmkay?)
I slept on wet hair, so I left a few pieces as they were to give a little variety. The cool thing about using the flat iron is that, if you accidentally go all corkscrew on a piece, you can just straighten it out a little to get the look you want.
... the fact that I lost over three pounds over Thanksgiving last week. That marks 29.4(!) pounds total (read more about that here) since September 26. I've still got a looong way to go, but it really has gotten easier. It's sort of habit now, and I'm particularly amazed at how little I crave sugar. Sugar used to be my thang, so it's really saying something that I can pass by a brownie without a second glance.

(Sorry... I couldn't resist. :))
... and lastly, but definitely not least, I'm loving my handsome husband.
