What’s Up Wednesday {February 2016}

Happy Wednesday! Time for a little life update! I’m linking with Shay for What’s Up Wednesday and Jenn for What’s Hap-pining Wednesday!

What I’m Eating This Week…buffalo chicken salad, I have a slight obsession lately. I had it for lunch two days in a row and I’m having it for dinner tonight.


What I’m Reminiscing About…past Valentine’s days. A bunch of photos popped up in my Timehop feed and I forgot about some of the fun dates we’ve had!

What I’m Loving…workout clothes. My workout game has been strong lately and I’ve seen some really cute workout clothes, especially funny t-shirts like these!

What We’ve Been Up To…lots of walks with our fur babies. Jeff’s schedule has changed and they were used to him being home all day while I’m at work but they’ve been spending long days by themselves so we’ve been taking more walks at night and doggie outings on the weekend.

What I’m Dreading…cleaning out my closet. It’s something I really need to do but I’m terrible at getting rid of things, I always think maybe I’ll fit into those ridiculous shorts from high school again someday or maybe I’ll need that shirt I never ever wear for a themed party…it’s crazy, I know. So I’m dreading forcing myself to clean out the old clothes. I recently signed up for Poshmark so hopefully that inspires me!

What I’m Working On…my morning routine. I’ve been waking up earlier and giving myself more time in the mornings and it makes a huge difference on the day.

What I’m Excited About…Friday, the last day of the conference I’m currently at for work. It’s a big conference for one of the main charities we support and on the last day is this huge celebration where I get to meet AMAZING kids who have been through a lot. I’m going to cry for sure but it’s one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

What I’m Watching…I’m trying to keep up with all my Spring shows: The Bachelor (kind of ready for Ben to just pick already and I really just want to see Woman Tell All), Pretty Little Liars and TGIT (just started again, yay!)

What I’m Listening To…”Pop Chillout” on Spotify has been my go to.

What I’m Wearing…since I’m at a work conference this week I’m wearing convention staples: business dresses, a cardigan since it always gets cold and comfy black or nude pumps.

What I’m Doing This Weekend…On Saturday, I’m hanging out with one of my best friends who lives a little far so it’s always a treat when we get together! On Sunday we may check out the Downtown Food & Wine Festival.

What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month…warmer weather and beach days! I’m so ready to relax on the beach with a good book.

What Else Is New…Wedding planning has been a wee bit stressful, we found out that my future brother-in-law will be getting deployed for military service right around the time we were planning on setting the date so we’ve had to decide between a shorter or longer engagement than we originally wanted. Not an easy decision! No date set for sure yet.

Bonus: What Is My Favorite Easter Tradition…super early church (sunrise service) followed by brunch!

    I have no self control when it comes to workout clothes – I need them all!! Super cute! And that salad looks delicious too!

  • those shirts are awesome! i’m really bad about cleaning out my closet sometimes. what i try and do is put things in a bag and put the bag in the spare room, then 6 months later if the bag is still there obviously i didn’t need those clothes, so out they go. definitely not the most effective way haha but it works. that salad looks delish!

    • That’s a good way to at least try to get rid of things! I don’t know why I have an attachment to clothes I don’t wear! Lol

  • Darcy

    That salad looks so good! I’m obsessed with all things buff chick!

    I have been cleaning out my closet for ages. I always convince myself that I may wear something, but I have finally gotten better. Still takes time and motivation to do it, though!
