What's Up Wednesday



Hi all!  It's What's Up Wednesday and I'm linking up with some of my favorite blog ladies to share what we've been up to lately!!

If you want to link up, just answer these questions and link to one of the sponsors above!


1. What we're eating this week...

This week, we are trying to re-commit to cooking at home and meal prepping!  Monday night, we totally failed at this because Jared was landscaping until late and I was working out so we had

Wasabi (I always eat Jared's soup and salad and then make TJ's chicken potstickers to keep the WW points low!)


Last night was my Crockpot Fettucine Alfredo

the rest of this week we are having some new meals I hope to share soon!

2. What I'm reminiscing about...

Our awesome trip to Louisville!

How crazy it is that we got engaged over two years ago!!  We have done so much over the past two years and I can't wait to see what the future holds.



3. What I'm loving...

Pretty flowers blooming!

Spring colors of my favorite tunics!  I bought this color and the hot pink and LOVE both!

4. What we've been up to...

Enjoying the spring football preview at U of L!


Garth Brooks concert! See more of that here.

Celebrating Lauren's birthday!


Growing the business!


5. What I'm dreading...


Nothing right now!

6. What I'm working on...


Still working on reaching my weight loss goal!!  I have 14 pounds to go and am determined to get there :)  I post fitness updates once a week on my progress.  See the most recent one here.

7. What I'm excited about...


Our bathroom (well, one of the two)  is finally complete and I will be revealing the before, middle & after on the blog tomorrow so be sure to check back for that post!

I'm almost done with this gallery wall and can't wait to share my how-to post on creating a gallery wall and our final product!

8. What I'm watching/reading...

Reading lately has been pretty minimal unfortunately!  I love to read but it's our busy season and when that comes, reading falls by the wayside.  I can't wait to pick it up again in the fall/winter!  Some books I want to read right now if I had time are: Balancing in Heels, I Said Yes, Celebrate (do you sense a theme?)  I'm all about serious reading but with summer coming I want to read some fun books too!  I'm also looking forward to reading the two magazines above that came in last week!



We have a lot of favorite tv shows but they are mostly just filling up our DVR right now!  Some of my favorites I've been watching are: Quantico, Reign, RHOBH, Chicago Fire/Med/PD, Grey's, Scandal & Blue Bloods.


9. What I'm listening to...

This world is just depressing sometimes and I think what we see on tv and hear on the radio definitely affects our attitude and direction of our thoughts.  I'm mainly listening to Christian Family Radio while I'm in the car to try to combat that!




10. What I'm wearing...
11. What I'm doing this weekend...

Not sure!  But hoping it includes lots of this...


Last weekend, we were busier and apart much more than we hoped for so we're hoping that we can just hang out and enjoy being together this weekend!

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...
A day off from work for Memorial Day!  Hopefully another busy business month too!

13. What else is new...
That about covers it!

  4. I am SO sad that the bright pink color in that tunic is unavailable in my size!! :-( I totally would have bought it. I should not be sad though since I have that tunic in three colors already haha. The landscaping looks lovely and all of your outfits are super cute! :-) Love those tulips too!! Thanks for sharing and I hope that you have a great day today! :-)

  7. I could not agree more with your comment on how depressing the world can be. I always try to listen to Christian music because it's just so much more uplifting!! Y'all are always having fun. Enjoy!!!

  11. Hi, I am Ada. I found you via Tiffany's blog. So glad I stopped by. Such a nice and thorough post. I love posts like this. As a fashion lover, I love the outfits. I own the cream and olive versions of that same Lush tunic and love them both. Also that patterned dress is so cute for Spring!

    I would love for you to stop by my blog as well. On Thursdays I run a linkup too which is going real well. Would love for you to linkup with me this week (brand new linkup is currently up - link below) and every Thursday. Thanks. =)

  13. Hi, I am Ada. So glad I found your blog recently. Great post. I love updates/real life/what have you been up to posts like these. That patterned dress is lovely and I love how you styled the LBD. The gallery wall turned out adorable, also. And I agree, I love the Lush tunics and own two myself but probably will get a third one lol.

    I run a linkup every Thursday and I would love for you to join me each week. The new linkup is live, currently. Welcome by. =)
