In other news, I'm trying to post daily from now on, at least until I get back into the groove of blogging.  I hope this is just a phase.  I really do.  But I'm starting to worry this "phase" has been going on for too long.  I'm hoping it's just because I'm busy or enjoying summer.  Yeah, let's go with that one.  It makes me feel less guilty, haha.  So anyway, I thought I would do a nice little filler, "what I'm loving" post.  First because I want to, and second, because it's an easy exercise that will flex my blogging muscles a little bit, right?  Right.  It sucks to be out of shape.  (In more areas than just blogging.  But that's another post for another day.)  Anyway...

I'm loving... taking pictures.  I've always been obsessed with photography.  In fact, I have been determined to make it at the very least a side career for a while now.  But lately, since going to the beach and having more opportunities to get some good shots of real people, and not just random objects, or my dog, or nature (pretty, but let's be honest... boring compared to shots of life being lived), it has really fed into my addiction like a healthy hit of crack.  Or something.  Am I even phrasing that correctly?  Better be careful, my in-depth knowledge of the drug world is showing.

I'm loving... Pretty Little Liars.  Well, ok, this technically doesn't count, since I have "loved" it since the day it aired.  However, I was bored and meandering around Target the other night, and stumbled upon the second season temporarily marked down from $45 to $15.  Um, steal anyone??  Sure, they still tricked me out of $15 when I could have otherwise spent $0 for the first time ever in Target history, but hey, it was worth it.  So now I'm re-loving PLL.  Maybe someday I'll catch up on my DVR and bring myself up to speed with the current season. Whoooops.  Apparently it's the "fall behind" stage of my life (blogging isn't the sole victim!).  On the bright side, at least I'm getting it out of the way early, and not when I have kids and am wondering why they look so hungry or their clothes don't fit anymore... or something.

I'm loving... Bic Soleil razors.  I was randomly sent a free one, and when I ran out of my cheap disposable ones, I decided to give it a whirl in lieu of dragging to the store for new ones.  Boy oh boy am I thankful for that -- this razor is the bomb dot com.  A nice close shave, and I haven't cut myself once.  People don't know this, but I suck at shaving my legs.  I'm always in a rush, it's a huge chore, and so "OMG hurry up I want to be done showering" is the name of the game.  So, my legs take a bit of a beating.  Oops.  But, not anymore, not since giving this razor a try!  I don't know how much they are in stores, but they come with a couple blades, so they last a good while.  Worth a try, for sure.  And I mean, who wouldn't want to try the razor made by the pen company we trust so much?  (Me, that's who.  A big "wtf" ensued when I saw them for the first time... not anymore!)
