What I'm Loving Wednesday

I haven't had time to blog lately. The Holidays at the Salon are C R A Z Y. So I thought I would start the new year off right by joining with Jamie for WILW!

one. I am loving that I got up bright and early this morning and met with my new friend/trainer Liz for a workout! Let me just say she kicked my butt. And all we did was measly strength training. I literally stumbled down the stairs from her house as I was leaving because my legs were like J e L L o! However I have been so proud of myself all day! New Year, new ME!

two. I am loving that I got to spend the entire day with my sweet hubby! He has been sick for 2 weeks. Working retail during the holidays takes a huge toll on your health. He has had a cold and hasn't had more than 4 hours of sleep a night in weeks. Finally he is feeling better and we had such a great day!

three. I am loving that my $1100.00 winnings from my Casino trip last week helped pay for my car damage! What car damage you may ask? I have been too busy to blog about it but a few weeks ago a deer hit me. I know what you are thinking, that the deer just jumped in front of my car and I just had to hit it.. right? Wrong. I was sitting STILL in my friends driveway and the deer RAMMED the left side of my car. Because I was only a mile from my house I drove on home. My brother came over and inspected the damage.. It didn't look horrible surprisingly enough. Luckily it was a doe.. which means no antlers! Thank God. We took the car to get an estimate today and guess what the damage was... $1000+ !!!! For a few dints and two small scratches. Thank you Jesus for car insurance. I only had to pay my $500 deductible. So I am not loving that I had to get my new car fixed but I am loving that I won the money at the casino and just happened to have it today to pay for it!

four. I am loving that JB was on Ellen today! If you know me or read my blog often you know that I have a slight obsession with both Justin Bieber and Ellen. Two of my favorite people in the world! He was so adorable on the show today too! 
Justin (and Ellen) is amazingly giving. If you know his story then you know he grew up extremely poor. He gives back so much now that he has made it big. Side note } Justin's Christmas Album Under the Mistletoe donates part of the proceeds to various charities. Including the exact same food bank he and his mom used to get most of their meals from. How amazing is that? {
There is an Elementary School in Las Vegas that Ellen has been helping since last season. She sends them money and computers because the school principle is so inspiring. Over half of the 610 students are homeless at this school. Justin Bieber donated $100,000, toys and a free concert to the school a few months ago. His visit on Ellen today was about this concert. It was so touching!
