What's Up Wednesday


Today is What's Up Wednesday and I'm excited to share a little of what we've been up to with you all!  It's the beginning of the year which is always an exciting time of planning, new goals and getting our lives settled back down from the holidays.



WHAT WE'RE EATING THIS WEEK...


Now that the holidays are over & we're settling back into a routine, we are all about eating at home.  It feels so good not to be eating out!  This week we're eating parmesan ranch chicken (recipe to be shared soon), chicken & brown rice skillet and cheesy chicken, potatoes & broccoli.

WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT...

Nothing right now!  If anything, just how much went on in 2016 and hoping 2017 is calmer :)

WHAT I'M LOVING...


My new buffet!! I'm almost done decorating this wall and when I am I'll share the finished product.  I searched high and low for the perfect buffet and am in love with this one!


My new Doterra Home Essentials Kit!  I'm still learning which oils to use for what so if you have any advice to share, I would love to hear it!

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...


Lots of relaxing in the post-holiday season!  We've been settling into the new year and getting our business ready for this season.  

WHAT I'M DREADING...

Nothing really!  Life is pretty good right now!

WHAT I'M WORKING ON...


Me!  I used to be so focused on health/fitness but have seriously slacked off the past 6 months!  I am trying to get in a good routine of eating clean and doing the 21 day fix workouts.  I love the 30 minute at-home workouts and the Shakeology for breakfast is a game changer for me in the mornings.

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT...

The new year has me so excited for everything!  A new year always brings new goals, routines, etc and that makes the spring an exciting time!

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING...


I just finished this book!  Late to the party, I know.  It was good but very sad and I just didn't love it.  I'll talk more about my thoughts on it in my book review!

We're watching all our shows that are back on after the holidays!  We also went to see Patriot's Day and Founder recently and both were really good!

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...

The Vampire Diaries while I work :)  It's one of my favorite shows & since it's the last season, I decided to watch the series again before the series finale.  LOVE it.  

WHAT I'M WEARING...


I'm in love with my new winter coat!


The Limited went out of business so I scooped up this cute peplum top at our local store for crazy cheap!  I'm also loving my Kate Spade bow necklace my sweet brother surprised me with for Christmas!


If you like cozy, buy this robe.  It is amazing, soft, warm and every woman needs one.


If I had a uniform right now, it would be black leggings, booties & a cozy top!

WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND...

Date night in with my husband, some work around the house & church, errands and prepping for the week on Sunday!

WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH...

Valentine's Day which happens to be my sweet husband's birthday!  Can't wait to celebrate with him :)

WHAT ELSE IS NEW...


My latest video blog on my 5 Minute Makeup Routine!

MY FAVORITE BACHELOR...

Definitely Sean Lowe!! He is a genuine, Christian, family man and I have great respect for him!

  1. That robe looks so cozy - that might be on my wishlist for Valentine's Day or my birthday! Patriot's Day and The Founder are two movies I really want to see - glad the hear they were good. Me Before You has been sitting on my bookshelf for so long now. Everyone seemed to be crazy about it, so I can't wait to read your review on why it wasn't all it was hyped up to be!

  8. I read Me Before You years ago (before it was so popular) and I really liked it except for the ending. Theologically, I just didn't agree with it. I read After You and really hated that! I love that robe! I love my BD cardi and I think having a robe would be icing on the cake! I'm interested to hear what you think about the oils!

  9. I adore your buffet! Can't wait to see the reveal when you're done decorating!! Loving all the looks in the what you're wearing section -- such a fabulous coat, super cute peplum top, I still want a robe like that, and a cozy sweater and leggings are wintertime perfection in my book! ;) xo - Brenda // ChattingOverChocolate.com
