What I am Loving Wednesday

I haven't participated in this for awhile!  Why not share my love for things that are awesome, right?  I know you all are curious about the things I have been digging this past little while. Here they are in no particular order.

I am loving that we squeezed in an August camping trip (our second camping venture ever - read about our first family camping trip here).  This time we booked off the Friday from work and headed out to Algonquin Provincial Park (again).  I mean it's gorgeous up there - it's worthy of multiple visits.  The campsite we stayed in wasn't as good as the first - but the experience was just as rich.  Plus we included a native Canadian activity - canoeing. Can you believe that I had never been canoeing before?  Actually I didn't do much canoeing rather than sitting in the middle - but someone had to capture the moments.

I am also loving Bachelor Pad 2. Who isn't right?  It's seriously right up there with Jersey Shore Italy.  Both are equally as ridiculous and entertaining. 

I am loving that my bestie has confirmed her wedding date - and is doing a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana!! Already a holiday to look forward to in the new year.

And I am loving being married to this guy! 

Did I mention that I am loving that we went camping?  In case I didn't.... I am totally loving that we went camping, AGAIN!

Glad you had a good time and actually got to do some canoeing...there is something very relaxing about being in a canoe, enjoying the scenery and just taking in the peacefulness around you......and yes, go for the fall camping trip.....it will be beautiful....
