Things I Love Thursday

Good evening my pretties!

I realize this makes three 'Things I Love Thursday' posts in a row but at least I'm blogging again, right? This Thursday finds me in a great mood so let the list commence!

(1) my iMac - I ADORE my new computer. Aside from the fact that it is a gorgeous machine, it has so much to offer! A 1 TB hard drive (so much space!), the new Magic Mouse with touch scroll, a user-friendly interface, and fantastic multimedia programs. iPhoto and iMovie allow me to edit and share my photos and video with such ease! One of my favorite features is the built in iSight camera, allowing me to Skype with my nearest and dearest.

Apple, I am completely open to being paid for selflessly promoting your products. Get in touch with me.

(2) Talking to my thesis advisor - I have the greatest mentor in the world. Professor J is so fantastic. She always says the right thing. Like today, I came into our meeting feeling like I was in over my head and that all my writing was useless and incoherent. But 45 minutes later I walked out with a game plan and renewed confidence. She told me exactly how to organize my research and how to set up both a timeline and outline so I will arrive at April 1st with the best writing I have ever done in my college career. She is the reason I want to go to graduate school and pursue my passion in history.

(3) Chewing gum - Anyone who knows me well knows I really like my gum. I have a voracious sweet tooth and nothing cuts the urge to snack than a piece of good old-fashioned bubble gum (sugar free of course). Thanks to the tendency of our society to buy in bulk, brands like Eclipse and Orbit have come out with the Big-e pak. I pretty much keep one on my desk at all times.

Hey, go get your own!

(4) Doing crafts - after perusing the DIY website at work one evening I was struck with the crafting FEVER! The next day I went right to Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics and spent my hard-earned money on two projects. I decorated large wooden initials for a friend's birthday and started a collection of headband accessories. When I am finished with both projects I will do a post about them with pictures. I am quite pleased with the results!

(5) This website - I find the coolest things at work (since usually I have nothing to do but surf the web). This particular gem is NOT recommended for anyone on a diet. It is a delightful collection of recipes for the most delectable goodies. Most intriguing are the recipes for cake pops and a recent post on how to make macarons (no that is not a misspelling, it is the French version of macaroons). I don't know how they taste but they look like tiny doll cakes that should only be served on little plastic plates in the company of your favorite stuffed animals. I forsee many an experimentation of these recipes....

Mr. Rabbit, you may only have another if you promise to stop kicking Madam Sprinkles under the table!

Time to get back to work! What tickles your fancy today?
