What’s Up, Wednesday?

Happy Hump Day!  The last Wednesday of the month, I link up with a few of my favorite bloggers to share what’s been going on this month!

We answer these questions…


Without further adieu…. here’s what’s up with us over here!

{What we’re eating this week}

We’ve been eating lots from the Eats cookbook and I love  that they’re so easy!  I can honestly say I’ve cooked more this year already than I did all last year! We’ve had the Chicken Ranch pasta, Fiesta Chicken with rice and Pizza Enchiladas this week and they were all very good!  We had some left over stuffing from the pizza enchilada’s and they were great with the flatbread crackers!  We also made some buffalo chicken roll ups on Sunday for the Packer game and my husband is in love!

{What I’m reminiscing about}

I’m still thinking about Christmas time!  I can’t believe how fast the holidays came and went and now we’re 9 months away from the start of the holiday season!  I know, I’m crazy!

{What I’m loving}

DSW Clearance ! For real ladies… I am only sometimes a fan of DSW.  I don’t feel like their prices are that good most of the time compared to department stores so I don’t generally shop there.  BUT I went there on Monday and honestly, I got two pairs of shoes for $15 a piece!  I’ve been looking for a pair of leopard flats and these were perfect for $15!

{What we’ve been up to}

This past weekend I didn’t take any pictures.. can you believe that?!  Friday night we did a little date night happy hour!  We haven’t done happy hour in what seems like forever since my husband is busy with school and work so it was a nice little switch up.  I also finally saw Hidden Figures with a girlfriend on Saturday and it was so good!  I figured it would be based on the reviews but honestly, I think I cried through the majority of it (happy and sad tears!).

This picture has nothing to do with this post but how cute not to share?! 

{What I’m dreading}

I have a pretty big meeting tomorrow at work and I’m a little bit dreading it; mainly because they’re doing a restructuring of all departments and eliminating (and changing) some positions so I’m anxious but nervous about what will be happening with my position! Fingers crossed and happy thoughts we’re all good!

{What I’m excited about}

Valentine’s Day and all that entails; mainly the colors and theme πŸ™‚ I shared a fun tutorial for a valentine Pom-Pom wreath here

I put together a fun gift guide for any gals who are looking for ideas (or any guys looking for ideas for their girls!).  

Throwing a fun Galentine’s Day party with my girlfriend, Jess!  We had so much fun at the Cookie Exchange that we thought this was the perfect time to celebrate friendships.  I’m thinking lots of red, pink, balloons, flowers and all those fun things!  I’m planning to share a fun guide in case you are wanting to do throw a fun party or brunch as well!

{What I’m reading}

I finished Teresa’s book last week and I always feel so accomplished when I finish a book!  Anyone else with  me on that?! I started The Matchmaker on Saturday and I don’t know if it’s just me but it’s kind of a slow start.. I’m about 60 pages in and I’m having the hardest time getting into it!  Anyone else feel this way?! I know many of you loved this book though, so I’m going to power through!

{What I’m watching}

Hart of Dixie!  I watched this last year and while it took a while to get into it, I ended up really loving it!  It’s an easy thing to have on and it makes me want to move back down south so badly! I mean, how cute is that little town?!  Have any of you watched this?!

{What I’m wearing}

All the pink and red. And all the Lilly Pulitzer πŸ™‚

{What I’m doing this weekend}

It’s my Mama’s birthday on Saturday and we’re headed to my Sister’s for the weekend to celebrate!  I love any time I get to spend with my family; especially my sweet not-so-little nieces!  On that note, my oldest niece just set her schedule for HIGH SCHOOL in the fall… I can’t even believe she’s that old! I’m officially the person who says “I remember when you were first born.. and when you puked into my mouth and down my shirt when you were a month old, etc”!  I mean… I didn’t just say that did I?? πŸ™‚

{What I’m looking forward to next month}

Umm.. hello, did someone say Valentine’s Day?  I love any holiday (seriously, I’m just like that) and I can’t wait to wear all the red and pink πŸ™‚  Also,  our Galentine’s Day brunch that I mentioned above.. We can’t wait to go all out; decorations, brunch food, mimosas!  Did you just say “donuts”? Oh yeah, those beauties too!

Hope everyone has a fabulous Wednesday! And I can’t wait to hear what you’re all up to πŸ™‚

    Good luck at your meeting. I hate restructuring meetings, but I’m sure you’ll do great!

    Also, I realized why you look so familiar to me…I totally think you’re Mandy Moore’s doppelganger! Since I’m obsessed with This is Us – I think you could totally be her!

    Happy Wednesday!

      You are too funny – I’ve heard that from a few people a few years ago (about Mandy Moore) and I never saw it! After my friend read your comment – she totally texted me and said “YOU DO LOOK LIKE MANDY MOORE!” haha! So maybe I do…?! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the good lucks!

      Umm yes – I love Wade but I do love George too – ugh how is it there’s such cute guys in one little town?! πŸ™‚ We don’t do a lot for Valentine’s Day (and I’m married!) but at least you can celebrate with your girlfriends until you find the “one”! πŸ™‚

    Good thoughts for your meeting, it’s so nerve wracking. We’ve lived through a company bankruptcy and another one downsizing. He’s got a great job now thoughπŸ‘πŸΌ. So I totally agree with you about DSW. I always think they are high price wise. I’ve found a few pairs there from time to time, but it’s pretty rare that I even go in. Love the idea of your Galentine’s Day bruch…such a cute name. You’d make an awesome southern girl with your monogrammed front door and all your LillyπŸ˜‰ #pearls #sweettea
