What I'm Loving Wednesday

Also known as, the introduction of my new hobby that has taken over my LIFE ;) 


Head on over to Jamie's blog to link up all the things you're currently loving!!
1} I'm loving that Gerrad (and the girls) got me the gray TOMS I've been wanting, for Mother's Day. And they got me some super cute new travel coffee mugs, whoop! 

2} I'm loving that this Mother's Day was one of my favorites so far. Gerrad got up early and went and got my favorite breakfast, and brought it home along with my gifts, my dad brought over the sweetest card ever, made me cry (what else is new). Then we went to church, then to lunch with G's family which was fun as always. After that we came home and my mom came over to watch the girls for a bit, and Gerrad and I went to play 9 holes of golf (more on that in a minute), then we came home and grilled steaks with my mom. It was a wonderful day, and makes me so very thankful for my amazing family! 


3} So the weekend before last, I decided that there was no time like the present, to take up golfing. Gerrad and I had hit balls one time, and after chatting for a bit about it, we decided that playing 9 holes would be good practice, so why not! So we loaded up our clubs, and Gerrad, my friend Ashley, and I all hit the links. That day was a huge flop for me, but I had to remind myself it was my FIRST time playing. Then Gerrad and I went again Monday evening, and then Wednesday evening, and then played again on Sunday for Mother's Day. I took a lesson Monday night, and feel a LOT better about my swing, which I was struggling with when it came to my irons.
4} I love my new clubs (except I ditched the bag for a dk gray/baby blue bag), and I love even more that we scored a heck of a deal on them on craigslist! Sometimes my husbands cheapness is beneficial :o)
5} I love that one of G's golfing buddies was giving him a hard time about teaching me to golf, and told Gerrad he was opening a can of worms he didn't want to deal with, because I'd always want to go with him, but that my sweet hubs defended me and said it was something fun that we could do together! I can't wait to keep improving my game, and play in a few tournaments this summer! Thanks for giving me the push to play, G! *Pardon the fact that this whole post is about golf, can you tell I'm loving learning how to play??? :)

LOVE your new Toms and your golf clubs!! I love how you two are learning this as a fun hobby to do together. Greg and I do so much together, and although there are times when we want to tear each other's heads off (I'm sure you've had a second or two of that when playing golf!!) it really is a fabulous thing to pick up with your other half ;-)

I love that you are taking up golfing!! Did you know that I have been golfing on and off for the last 15 years? Played all throughout high school and enjoy playing in the summer!

Katie said...

haha you are too funny! I golf too...I mean, I try. I have my own clubs that my Dad got me 2 years ago and I've only used them on the driving range so far because it's so hard of a sport to keep up with I find! I do enjoy beating Billy in putt putt though :)

David and Elizabeth said...

Jacqueline @ JaxandMarbles said...

Sarah the Writer said...

LOVE those clubs! I would have kept the bag, but that's just me the pink-obsessed girl ;)

That's awesome that you're taking up golf. I love going to mini golf and it's a lot of fun. Regular golf sounds great too :)

Lindsi said...

Thanks for all the sweet words you left on my blog! :) My heart is so full right now!!

I have a super cute pink Titlest golf bag that I got for our wedding....but I never get invited to golf. Boo. Alan jokes that we do EVERYTHING else together (Nascar, camping, 4-wheeling, etc) so it's his one out "with the guys!" Ha! Guess I should give it to him?!

Caroline said...

yay for the TOMS! And I love that you're taking up golf. I can't wait to hear how it goes!

Terésa Marie said...

Love this! I'm hoping to learn to play some day in the DISTANT future as my hubby loves it so much. I'd love to keep him company while he plays, but it's such an expensive sport for now he enjoys going once or twice a year!

Kit said...

Those are some awesome things that you are loving today!!! Hope you have a great Wednesday!

Krystal said...

I need some Toms in my life! I saw they had blue glitter ones but they aren't online anymore >:( BOOO!

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

I keep seeing Toms everywhere I go. I think they're growing in me....cause at first I didn't get the fuss. Maybe I will have to try them on....are they comfy?? Is that the appeal?

Mateya said...

Glad you got your Toms! :)

Robbie and I have been golfing together a few times and we have so much fun...probably because neither of us are very good !:)
