What's Up Wednesday



This week I thought I'd join What's Up Wednesday for some fun
Here we go!


WHAT WE'RE EATING THIS WEEK
Since Monday was Memorial Day, we were out of town, and meal prep fell to Tuesday night. This week I cooked for Tuesday-Thursday. Friday is our "free" night. Chris always goes out to dinner with the guys since he works Friday nights, and I usually wind up eating guacamole for dinner, just because I can! Normally I cook every evening, but we are trying to eat really clean, so I was able to do it all in one night! Yay! I brined a bunch of chicken breast, and I made a dry rub for it from scratch with five or six of our favorite spices. It turned out AMAZING! I also roasted a ton of veggies. I love being able to prep like this so I can just grab and go. It keeps me from eating junk, and I don't have to cook every single night. 




WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT
Last weekend my sweet Granny turned 95 years old, and we celebrated with a big party. It was the first time I was able to bring Chris to her little town and introduce him to all the things I loved growing up! (He also got to meet some of my favorite cousins for the first time!) It was so nice to show him all of these things I'd told him so much about, and the whole weekend definitely brought up lots of fun childhood memories. I even got to introduce him to the best bbq EVER! 


WHAT I'M LOVING 
I'm loving this nice weather, right before it gets so hot that you don't want to do anything. It's the perfect patio weather! I'm spending as much time as possible outdoors.


WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO
As I said above, we've been out of town! Other than that, I guess the biggest thing we've been up to (more Chris than me) is fixing up a classic pickup truck. He's been working on it quite a bit, and I've been looking into new paint colors, seat covers, and rims. We've wanted to fix up an old car/truck for awhile, and although we wanted something a little older, (it's an '85) the price was right! I'm sure once it's finished it won't be long before the next one comes along! 


WHAT I'M DREADING
I'm not really dreading anything. Maybe the summer heat a little bit, since I nanny two very active boys. I've been trying to come up with lots of indoor or water related activities to keep us cool in the summer months. (If you have any tips send them my way!) I'm just going to try to make the best of it. 


WHAT I'M WORKING ON
I always feel like I'm working on tons of things. Right now I'm really trying to work on my fitness. We're trying to make gym time more of a habit. I'm also working on my blog! I've always been really inconsistent with it in the past, but I'm trying to be better! 


WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT 
I'm excited about the next few months. Summer is always fun, and this will be my first summer with such a flexible job! I'm hoping for lots of play dates with friends during the week, and lots of weekends in the pool. One of my best friends is getting married in the fall, so there will be lots of pre-wedding events this summer. I'm really excited to celebrate her these next couple of months. 


WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING
We ditched cable awhile ago, so I've become somewhat of a Netflix junkie. Right now I'm watching Life Unexpected. So far, so good. As far as reading, I'm really enjoying discovering new blogs lately, so there hasn't been much time for books!


WHAT I'M LISTENING TO
I'm loving my Stevie Ray Vaughn greatest hits cd. It's been in my car for awhile, but I never get tired of it. I've also been listening to Jessie James Decker, especially her "Girl on the Coast" track. It's the perfect relaxing summer tune. Her new EP Gold is on iTunes! 


WHAT I'M WEARING 
 A couple of my current favorites are this new top (I think I got it at Target) and these adorable Sam Edelman sandals. Although most of my summer wardrobe consists of leggings and tank tops because of my job, these will be staples in my weekend wardrobe this summer. 



WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND
I'm just so excited to relax this weekend. I will be spending some time by the pool to even out a tan line so that I don't look silly in a dress next weekend, but other than that, I hope we end up doing absolutely nothing. We traveled last weekend, and we're traveling next weekend, so I really want a nice, slow, relaxing, weekend.  


WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH 
We're traveling to Corpus to see some of Chris' family, we get to celebrate some of our best friends at their engagement party, and we have some great friends coming to town, which will for sure be a good time! 


WHAT ELSE IS NEW
I can't think of anything else thats "new"
See you next time!
