What’s Up Wednesday {April 2016}

What I’m Eating This Week…BBQ, Donuts, Italian, French Toast Muffins, Dippin Dots…not all at the same time, but still, I’ve been awful lately…

What I’m Reminiscing About…The Beach. I have yet to spend a day at the beach this year and it’s only an hour away. I need a nice relaxing day out there!


What I’m Loving…fresh air. I’ve started taking my lunch outside at work and reading while I eat instead of the usual lunch at my desk. I’ve also started taking the dogs on more walks after work. The fresh air and sunshine does wonders for my mood.

What I’ve Been Up To…family celebrations – we’ve had birthdays, our engagement party (more on that next Wednesday!) and just lots of fun family togetherness time which makes my heart happy.

I also got a chance to finally visit Diagon Alley at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter which I’ve been wanting to do for ages!

What I’m Dreading…paying my student loans off. My grace period is ending and I have to woman up and start paying, ugh.

What I’m Working On…our big golf tournament for work IN TWO DAYS. It’s all hands on deck and all systems go right now and I just can’t wait for Friday to be over!

What I’m Excited AboutJojo as The Bachelorette is premiering on May 23rd!!

What I’m Watching/Reading…I haven’t been keeping up well with my shows lately and am desperately trying to catch up on The Voice!

I’ve just finished reading No One Knows by J.T Ellison – review to come ?

I’m listening to After You on Audible which I’m really excited about since I loved Me Before You.

I have lots of books on my nightstand to read next and lots of blogs to catch up on!

What I’m Listening To…the Gilmore Guys podcast! I’ve never really listened to podcasts before but I heard about this one and had to try it. It’s okay so far…I started at the very beginning and I think they were still figuring things out but I like the dynamic so I’m excited to keep listening! I need ideas for more podcasts to try so give me suggestions please!

What I’m Wearing

My Viva La Brunch tank – it’s so comfortable, great for brunch and shopping, what else could a girl ask for?

These wedges – Also very comfortable and the perfect height for me. They are going to be my go-to summer shoes.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel – I now have this in 3 colors and love it!

What I’m Doing This Weekend…A lot! I have a big event Saturday that I’m volunteering at following my big work event on Friday! I’m volunteering for the Walk For Life benefiting the True Life Choice ministry. I’m still trying to reach my fundraising goal so if you would like to make a donation to support the cause any support is greatly appreciated!

I also have our annual adult slip and slide party with friends this weekend that I’m looking forward to!

What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month…Our 5-year anniversary! We’ve decided to got to Savannah for the weekend, I’ve never been AND we are staying in a Bed & Breakfast. I’m so excited for a romantic weekend away after all the craziness of the last few months!

What Else Is New…I’ve been slightly obsessed with snapchat lately – follow me @jackattack1886 and leave me your username too!

Happy Hump Day!

Linking up with Shay, Mel and Sheaffer.

  • oooh those wedges are super cute. i’ll have to check out that podcast, do they just talk about gilmore girls or something? mmmmmm Dippin Dots. so jealous.

    • Thank you! They talk about each episode of the show and joke around and have guests sometimes. It’s fun to listen to!

    Ooohhh I love that polish color! I am bad about ‘chipping and peeling’ and being rough on my nails, but that’ super cute and doesn’t seem like it’d be too noticeable if it chipped

    • The color is called Birthday Suit! I usually can’t even get a day out of it before my nails chip but this polish lasts almost a week!

  • Elizabeth Duquette-Hollands (M

    Kinda sorta obsessed with that amazing nude polish <3

  • I love the beach quote! And happy early Anniversary wishes!
