Lots to love this Wednesday!

What I'm Lovin Wednesday! Link up here!

Oh my goodness! So many things to love today!!!
And yes! It is a work day! HAHA! But it's a good one!

here is what i am lovin' today.

The workday wasn't too bad at all! The phone was fairly quiet. Yay!

After work my hubby took me on a mini-date! Sometimes when i have theatre, Brad will take me to dinner or something after work before rehearsal. I call those mini-dates. :) Anyway, tonight he was the one who had to be somewhere at 7:45. So we met at La Carreta for dinner after work. Then we headed to the mall. He told me i could spend $50 at Potterybarn for our anniversary! And i didn't even think we were doing gifts! How sweet! We had decided i'd pick something in Potterybarn or Williams Sonoma. I ended up getting these bowls from Williams Sonoma. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!! SO CUTE! I have always wanted these kinds of bowls with the double handles. I found out these are dishwasher, microwave AND OVEN safe! I can make pot pies in them & everything! Love!

I'm not sure if you know this, but i am a huge calendar & planner freak! Love them & always have! (When i was in school, i loved my assignment pad. I know. Scary.) I always get more than my money's worth, too...i use the heck out of them! Today i decided to find the ones i wanted for 2011. I found the cutest COFFEE calendar for the side of our fridge. I love it. Brad is a HUGE coffee lover & he loved that i got a coffee one! HAHA. You can see it here - isn't it cute?!

And i found the planner i want, too! Actually, i sorta can't make up my mind. I found these at Sarah Pinto. They are my faves & i was happy to see that it is for a good cause, as her son has a heart defect. You can read more about it at her site. Do not freak at the price tag... just know that it is a LOT less than the one i got last year (will never spend that much on a planner again!). But at least i use them like crazy!!

Aren't they cute? My faves are the first two, and i really can't pick! The problem is that i like Polkadots best & Kelly Green best! I'm not sure if i want to see pink that much all year! HAHA. So i may go with the green one. However, Brad's favorite is the pink one. And about a million people voted for me on FB. HAHA. I am truly torn. And, really, this is a huge decision, as this planner will be with me for an entire year! ;)

Which one is your favorite?

A dear friend who reads my blog (hi, dana!!!!) just emailed me to inform me that a Panera Bread is opening here in Baton Rouge!!!! Ohmygoodness, my prayers were heard! HAHA! I am so excited! If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time, you should know that i REALLY want a Panera Bread here. I just LOVE that place & their food is oh, so good! That news TOTALLY made my day! (thanks, dana!!!)

The article was in BR Business Report & it said that they expect it to open sometime in 2011. They are looking for the right location, and i'm kinda thinking "duh! towne center or perkins rowe!" ~ I will be surprised if that's not where it ends up! (I hope so!)

Speaking of, i saw that Panera Bread has a COOKBOOK!?! Whaaaat!? :) I will have to check that out some later! It's time for my mini-date!! :)
