What I’m Loving Wednesday!

NF: AH!  My little baby is going to be 2 years old TOMORROW!!!!  What happened?!  He’s growing up!
Anne Hathaway’s version of I dreamed a dream: I wrote about how I loved this song back November 30th 2012 here.  And I’m saying it again.  Best crying song ever.  Watch it here and get ready for the water works…  http://vimeo.com/57509875
A Frappuccino from Starbucks:  A frappuccino and a pedicure can always temporarily fix any mood.
Running on a treadmill for 1 mile: I love the feeling of completing a mile run on a treadmill.  Once I hit the mile mark – DONE.  I have completed my goal… no more thank you, get me off of this thing oh my god is what’s going through my head.  Face is bright red, sweating, but so accomplished.  MAYBE one day I’ll try 2 miles.  but for now, 1 mile is my thing.  I’ve done a 5k but why would I want to do a 5k at the gym on a treadmill like for the heck of it?  No way too much.
nike socks
Clean white socks and clean white sheets: are ya with me?  There’s nothing like it.  Super clean white socks and white sheets… even warm from the drier… uhh the best.
yoga pants crop
Yoga pants – crop from Aerie $15: The best yoga pants ever… and no need to worry about the length since they’re crop.  No fear ordering these bad boys online.  I’m a size 4 and a medium from Aerie and  a small from Victoria Secret.  These yoga pants are like half the price of VS and just as good or better.
italian bread

Fresh Italian Bread: my mouth is watering just thinking about hot fresh Italian bread.  Oh my favorite.
Sleeping with a fan all year round: sleeping with a fan does many things for me.  It keeps me cool (obviously) and it drowns out any snoring/breathing/quite tv sounds so that I can sleep (sorry C, you’re loud).  I used to sleep with ear plugs in on the weekends (couldn’t during the week because I needed to hear my alarm).  But those days are over with a child, I need to be able to hear him in case something happens ya know.  So the white noise of a fan does the trick… and I love it.

Les Miserables – I Dreamed a Dream

The very best song to listen to when you’re sad is I Les Miserables – I Dreamed a Dream… and the Anne Hathaway version is AMAZING.  I seriously cannot wait for Les Miserables to come out this Christmas… I am already obsessed.


Now read these lyrics, youtube the song, and cry with me… all together now…

There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame

He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came

And still I dream he’ll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
