What's Up Wednesday

What's up with y'all on this fine {SPRING BREAK} Wednesday?

Today I'm joining some of my favorite bloggers for a WUW linkup, and if you're a blogger you should join in too ;)

Let's jump right in and see what everyone has been up to so far this week...

What We're Eating this Week. . .
Well, I guess I shouldn't have let my Spring Break flag fly too high, y'all will expect too much from me!
On Monday, I made a roast in the crock pot with pasta salad, cheesy rice, creamed corn, and ciabatta rolls. (So good!)
On Tuesday night, we kind of fended for ourselves with leftovers from the weekend and Monday night.
Tonight, I have class in Jacksonville (my last class ever!) so I'll probably be bringing home Mata's pizza to celebrate.
And I'm thinking Thursday I'll do something casual because Friday is going to be Shrimp Boil night!

What I'm Reminiscing About. . .
I'm kind of soaking up this last Spring Break, because although as a teacher I will still have just won't be the same as a college student!

What I'm Loving. . .
I am loving wrapping up all of my college stuff and I'm also loving being in my own classroom with my own kids-it's so busy and hectic, but also rewarding!

What We've Been Up To. . .
Chris and I have both been so busy!
I've been using this week to get caught up on household chores and lesson planning.

What I'm Dreading. . .
I am dreading going back to school after Spring Break, but hey as of today we only have 58 days until summer!

What I'm Working On. . .
Today I submitted my last unit plan and reflection and tonight I'll turn in my PDK application, so there has been tons of school stuff being worked on.
Lesson plans are also taking up a ton of my time, but it's worth it.

What I'm Excited About. . .
Well, I have graduation coming up in just a few weeks.
My PDK induction (professional honor society) and banquet are sooner than that.
I'm just thrilled about graduating (with honors!) and celebrating with my family!

What I'm Watching/Reading. . .
Since it is Spring Break, I've been taking advantage of some extra time.
I've been watching Hulu while I iron and fold laundry and Heartbeat (new medical drama) is my new thing, along with Scandal!

What I'm Listening To. . .
I pretty much only listen to country music; some recent faves of mine have been T-Shirt by Thomas Rhett, 80's Mercedes by Maren Morris, and Came Here to Forget by Blake Shelton.

What I'm Wearing. . .
This week has been ALL about the comfort for me.
I'm cleaning and working around the house in my favorite sweatpants from my junior college days, a v-neck Piko top, and only the coolest fox socks from Old Navy.

What I'm Doing this Weekend. . .
Well, these plans are still up in the air, but I'm hoping Friday will be a shrimp boil with either my parents or some friends.
Saturday will most likely be a grilling night out with Chris and maybe watching Farmland on Netflix (I highly recommend that documentary!)

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month. . .
As if I couldn't say it enough, but I'm looking forward to my PDK induction, graduation, and celebrating with family and friends. 
(Oh, and picking out some adorable grad announcements too ;)

What Else is New. . .
Honestly, I think I've shared all the new/exciting things with y'all today-which I'm thrilled about!
Come back by tomorrow and I should have my first Empties post of 2016 put you can see what I'm loving and hating as far as makeup, skincare, haircare, candles, etc. go!

Question of the month is:
What Spring Cleaning tips do you have?
Lists, lists, lists!
I make a master list of everything I want to get done, say in a week.
Then every day I cross of what I do accomplish and then just focus on what's left (& add in new things if I come up with them).
It really helps keep me focused and I love being able to cross things off!

Until next time. . .

  10. Congrats on the upcoming graduation! :) I graduate in May and am SO excited for it. I got the tickets, but I still have to purchase the announcements and all that. So much to do!

  11. Shrimp boil- yum!
    And next month is going to be so exciting for you- eek!

  12. That's awesome that you're about to graduate! You have been incredibly busy, that's for sure. Enjoy the weekend!

  13. Of all of the things I miss about being a professional student, spring and summer breaks top that list. :) I taught at the college level for several years after graduating from my M.A. program, but we were on the quarter system at that college, which meant I got four breaks a year (shorter, but still not too shabby). Now that I work at home, I miss those guaranteed breaks! Congrats on nearing the end of your schooling!

  14. Shrimp boil sounds amazing!!! I have so many lists right now for spring cleaning and stuff it's insane. Enjoy the spring break and your weekend!

  15. What a fun link up! I love learning more about blogger's lives offline. Congratulations on graduating so soon! That's such an exciting time.

  16. a shrimp boil sounds delicious!

  17. Last week was my Spring Break. I usually have delusions of grandeur about how much cooking I'll be doing when I'm off, not taking into account all the house projects I try to squeeze in when I'm off. Yeah, major overachiever here.

  18. congratulations on honor society, all your hard work is paying off! ps. all that food you made sounds delicious! what a nice monday night treat!

  19. Such a cute post, you seem to have everything under such great control, master lists always helps right. Graduation must be super fun but planning hectic, so good luck! I should check out Farmland for sure. Hope you had a fun weekend grilling :)
