In high spirits - WILW

So many things I'm loving right now. Can't even keep it all straight.

Could be that my spirits are a little more lifted than normal because:

1). I'm LOVING that I get to be a bridesmaid for the very first time ever in my best friend's wedding next weekend. I can't wait!

2). I'm LOVING that next weekend will also be a monumental time for Mr. Ruby and I - we will be celebrating five years of wedded bliss. FIVE YEARS! #Holycow

3). I'm LOVING that we decided to try light soy milk last week. We are hooked. And it is sooo good for you. I'm going to try the chocolate next time we hit up the grocery store.

4). I'm LOVING that some of my huge house projects are coming to an end. Especially the front door/built-in book case. It has taken hours/weeks to sand/tape/prime/paint all the trim in the living room and the French Provincial windows and door. (A whole post will be dedicated to this addition to house posts period. Promise.)

5). I'm LOVING that I have been reading again. Just finished Water for Elephants last week. LOVED. Can't wait to see the movie...although I'm just sure it wasn't nearly as good as the book. Movies never are.

6). I'm LOVING all the volunteer opportunities this summer. Last Friday, Mr. Ruby and I volunteered at the Special Olympics. So fun. So rewarding. And I have a ton more volunteer fun coming up for JL.

7). I'm LOVING how cute the pups are lately. I mean, they're always cute. But they have just been overly cuddly and sweet. I mean, this is what they do every day when we leave. So sweet!

Go ahead and link up with Jamie to play along!

I can't wait to see the outcome of your new bookshelf! And yes, the book Water for Elephants was way better than the movie. The movie was good but I felt like I was speed reading the book it was so good!

I am currently reading water for elephants right now and am loving it! Have you read any other good books lately? I am going on a vacation next weekend and need some good books to take with me!

Can't wait to see the home projects and how they have turned out! :)

You are 100% correct about the book being way better than the movie. I saw the movie, and even though the acting was great, it wasn't anywhere near the book...the book had so much depth and things that the movie just couldn't bring to the screen!

I actually really enjoyed the Water for Elephants movie. Of course the book was better, but I think the movie did a pretty good job at following the major plotlines of the book.

I think I'm in the minority when I say that the movie was better than the book. The book was so slow to me.
