What's Up Wednesday!

Hey y'all!

This week you get a bonus post because I decided I would do the "What's Up Wednesday" link up that so many of my favorite bloggers/ do!

What We're Eating This Week...
On Monday, it was leftover shrimp boil (SO good!). Tuesday, I made a chicken casserole because my poor hubs didn't feel too good. Today (Wednesday) I'm going grocery shopping so I'll probably pick us up something from town! Thursday and Friday, who knows. Since it's Spring Break we're playing it by ear!

What I'm Reminiscing About...
The wedding this last weekend has me feeling all romance-y and missing the newlywed days (although, we've only been married right at two years, so I still claim newlywed status!)

What I'm Loving...
Being home all week from Spring Break!
The freedom to do whatever I want clean and answer phone calls during the day is wonderful!

What We've Been Up To...
Honestly, a whole lot of nothing. The hubs has a man cold, so I'm not sure if we're going to go canoeing this week as planned...but I am going shopping today!

What I'm Dreading...
State testing is coming up soon at school, it feels like it's going to last the whole month of April!
And I also have an oral surgery scheduled for next Wednesday, so that's not sounding too exciting.

What I'm Working On...
A really fun Easter post! And also working on getting our house cleaned & decorated for Spring :)

What I'm Excited About...
I have my eye on a couple of things on Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty that I want to purchase & new makeup/skincare always gets me excited!

What I'm Watching/Reading...
I'm trying to finish up my current book (Counting on a Cowboy by Debra Clopton) and I'm watching tons of YouTube videos to pass the time while I load/unload the dishes and fold lots of laundry.

What I'm Listening To...
I'm still hooked on the Women of Country Spotify playlist, but I'm also loving Drake White's playlist as well.

What I'm Wearing...
Since it's Spring Break I'm loving being able to wear my oversized shirts and leggings all day!

What I'm Doing This Weekend...
Maybe canoeing, maybe grilling out with friends. Who knows!

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month...
I'm so looking forward to having those state tests behind my jr. high kids as well as my oral surgery.
Then I'll be counting down the days until summer break! (Oh wait...I already am. 39 school days!)

What Else Is New...
Not much else is new, but I am loving my new blogging schedule (Tuesdays and Saturdays) and I love being able to give y'all a bonus post this week. 
Blogging is my stress relief and greatest creative outlet-it's so much fun for me!

Bonus Question: What's your favorite Spring wardrobe piece?
These shoes are the most comfortable shoe I've ever had in my entire life. I have them in two colors and can wear them all day long to teach in. They are perfect for southern spring!

Statement earrings are another favorite for my Spring wardrobe. I love these, these...and omg, these!

I hope y'all enjoyed today's bonus post!

Down below, let me know what's up with you :)

Until next time. . . 



  1. Loved reading this! I may have to give this a try!

  2. Love this! Looking forward to the Easter post!

  3. Sometimes a low key spring break is just what the doctor ordered. Being able to wear daytime pajamas all day is the best! This week, my kiddos and I are enjoying our "warm" high 40-low 50 degree "spring" weather.

  4. I am also so excited for Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty!

  5. I haven't heard of What's Up Wednesday, but it's such a fun idea!! I hope your hubby feels better so you can go canoeing!

  13. I think canoeing is more fun when the weather is warm and you can take breaks while baking in the sun <3
