Two of my favorite bloggers to follow are Shay over at Mix & Match Mamma and Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To. The last Wednesday of the month, they along with Mel at Larson Lingo host a linky party called ‘What’s Up Wednesday’. I liked the idea, and thought it would be nice to start participating so I can look back and see what we were up to each month! Here we go..
What we’re eating:
Tonight, we are having chicken, potatoes, and corn on the grill. This is a ‘bad’ food week for me. The past two nights I had dinner with colleagues, Friday I have dinner plans, and Saturday is my brother’s 18th birthday / graduation party.
What I’m reminiscing about:
I don’t know if it’s too recent to reminisce about our wedding but I do spend quite a bit of time thinking about it. What I was super happy with (most of it) and what I would have changed.
What I’m loving:
Summer. I live for summertime.
What we’ve been up to:
Trying to catch up from being away! I have a million thank-you’s to write, the house is a disaster- we have all these new gadgets and goodies and I have to find homes for them! Trying to get back into the blogging routine, oh and you know working : )
What I’m dreading:
I don’t usually dread things, I prefer to face challenges head on. If I had to pick something, I’d say Fall because I never want summer to end!!
What I’m working on:
Aside from the obvious – work, blog, wedding thank-you’s. I’m also working on a little pet project, getting a dog. (<– See what I did there!?! haha! I crack myself up sometimes!) We are so excited to add a four legged friend to the family and I can’t wait to share more details one I have them!
What I’m excited about:
I’m excited it’s summertime, and I’m looking forward to the 4th of July! It’s one of my favorite holidays and I am so excited it falls on a Saturday so we get Friday off work! Thinking about trying to get a group of friends together Thursday, July 2nd to go to RibFest- which is an event in Naperville (the town right next to where I work!) We’ve missed the last few years due to busy schedules. We’ll probably spend the actual 4th enjoying my parents pool and watching the fireworks.
What I’m watching/reading:
I just finished rereading Dark Places by Gillian Flynn for Bon’s Book Club. I’m actually co-hosting it with her this month. I’ll be sure to share the details here so you can stop by and let us know what you thought!
On our honeymoon I actually read a few really enjoyable books. The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year and The Girl on the Train. I’ve been thinking about keeping better track of the books I read by doing more regular reviews, would anyone be interested in reading this?
What I’m listening to:
Slightly embarrassed to admit this, but I just downloaded Spotify a few weeks ago. Yes, it is confirmed I do live under a rock in case you were wondering. Some of my favorite stations this week have been United States Top 50, Afternoon Acoustic, Taste Rewind (00’s, 90’s), Re-Energize, and Throwback Thursday.
What I’m wearing:
Currently, loungewear because that’s how I roll when I get home from work. This week my outfits have been fairly uninspired for work, dark jeans and a normal top. I really need to do laundry badly (no idea what I’m going to wear tomorrow if I don’t).
What I’m doing this weekend:
Friday night, I have dinner plans to celebrate my friend’s birthday; we are trying a restaurant in the city. Saturday; I have a mud run in the morning (eek!) and my brother’s birthday/graduation party in the afternoon / evening. Then Sunday, I’m not sure but hopefully something low key and fun.
What I’m looking forward to next month:
I’m trying out a new budget, so I’m looking forward to seeing how that works out. Nordstrom is having their semi-annual sales (this will not be good for the budget). I *think* we will be getting our wedding pictures back- can’t wait for that!
What else is new:
Nothing much else, but I’d love to know what’s new with YOU!!
Happy Hump Day!
We are almost to Friday!
