What’s up Wednesday – June 24 2015

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!
