What's Up Wednesday--January 2016

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Today I'm linking up with my most favorite blog ever, Mix and Match Family, for What's Up Wednesday!

What we're eating this week...
I'm slacking on cooking this week because I'm overloaded with assignments and then Dustin will be gone this weekend hunting (yay for the end of deer season!).  So far this we (meaning me haha) have eaten cereal and Green Chile Chicken Tacos.

What I'm reminiscing about...
Take me back to the beach!  I'm so over winter and the rainy weather.  January through March are my least favorite months because of weather.  I'm so ready for the sun and warmer temps--and the beach!

What I'm loving...
Early morning workouts with my sister!  We have been meeting at the gym every Tuesday and Thursday morning for the 5 AM class.  It's been so nice to have someone to keep me accountable because I would really prefer to sleep in since it's cold and dark outside at 4:45 when I'm leaving.  For those of you who don't think you could work out that early during the week.....Yes you can!!!  The first week was hard, but it's been much easier the more I've done it!

What we've been up to...
Grad school, work, and more work.  Oh, and hunting but that's over this weekend!!!

What I'm dreading...
This is such a broken record, but I'm so tired of grad school and the amount of work (that makes me sound so lazy, but it's just insane!).  I'll be so ready for it to be over

What I'm working on...
Finding joy in all situations!

What I'm excited about...
Janie (my bff) and I are going to a concert in our old college town in May.  It's a band I've wanted to see for years, and the date is extra special because it's the last day of my last grad school semester!  I can't think of a better way to celebrate!!  (Along with a nice day at the spa ;)  Hint hint, Dustin)
This was us at Janie's bridal tea at church!  My hair was so blonde!

What I'm watching/reading...
I don't have time really to watch TV for fun or read for fun, but I'm making time for The Bachelor!!  I think Caila is my favorite right now because she seems wholesome and normal--except for the fact that she broke up with her boyfriend when she saw Ben on The Bachelorette?

What I'm listening to...
Lots and Lots of The Avett Brothers!!!!

What I'm wearing...
Gym clothes...

This gorgeous dress from Anthropologie...

And my Converse!

What I'm doing this weekend...
This weekend I'll work on grad school work, do a little furniture shopping, and catch up on TV!

What I'm looking forward to next month...
It's one month closer to summer!!

What else is new...
Nothing much!

And congratulations to Heather F. for winning the $15 card to Starbucks!!  Heather, I emailed you last night, so check your email!  

Thanks to everyone who entered!  I plan on doing another giveaway this summer to celebrate my graduation from graduate school!


  1. Green chile chicken tacos, yum. Those are SO good. It's great that you and your friend have that concert to look forward to, what a way to celebrate the end of your semester! That anthro dress is super cute, it looks so comfy! Happy Wednesday!

  2. Grad school and working is so tough - but you got this girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I love that dress from Anthro on you! So cute! And yes to bringing you back to the beach--can you bring me with you/?? haha

  4. Love that dress on you! I love Anthro, they have the best stuff. Working and going to school is so hard! Good luck!

  5. Fun linkup, I totally forgot about it this month.

    Having a morning workout buddy is the best! Way to go rocking them out!

  6. Yes, take me back to the beach please!!! How cute are you in those workout clothes!! Yummo chicken tacos!!! Fun post!!

  7. Oh my gosh, I have a hard time convincing myself to work out at 7am. You're a trooper for 5am classes!

  8. Oh girl, 5 AM is rough! Hats off to you for sticking with that! I have a bad enough time waking up at 6, but I so wish that I was a morning person so I could wake up earlier and get things done before work!

  9. It's so hard to wake up first thing in the morning for a workout, but it's too totally worth it to get it out of the way! And it totally does get easier after the first week once you can start getting into a routine.

  10. I was working out at 5:30 every morning and have gotten completely out of the habit. I need to get back into that ASAP because I felt so much better & more awake at work! Loving the Bachelor right now! I like Becca, Jojo and Caila the best right now I think!

  11. You're so close to finishing Grad school! Good for you, girl! Keep swimming!!


  12. I love the anthropologie dress! Looks great!

  13. Early morning workouts are so much better when you have a partner!

  14. You are so cute! All your outfit pictures! And I'm so jealous your sister wakes up early to work out with you. Mine never would!

  15. I totally understand you with the grad school thing... School is slowly creeping into every aspect of my life. You are so close to being done! Yay!
