What's Up Wednesday--May 2017

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

It's the last day of May!  And since it's the last Wednesday of the month, I'm linking up with Shay for What's Up Wednesday!

What we're eating this week...
I made quinoa fried rice Sunday night.  We've been eating on burgers Dustin grilled Monday night, and last night I was craving pizza so we got a $5 one from Little Caesar's which I regretted after I finished eating it.  Whole30, I'm coming for ya!

What I'm reminiscing about...
I'm not really reminiscing about anything--I'm glad it's finally summer break!

What I'm loving...
The fact that I'm out of school for the summer!  When people find out I'm a teacher, they usually make a remark about wishing they got summers off and how easy my job is.  Please.  If you were with 12-13 year olds all day every day, you'd need a mental break, too.  

What we've been up to...
 Switching up my workouts

My mom and I both work for the same school system, and on the last day of the school year, the entire system comes together to celebrate teachers.  I love being able to see my mom whenever our entire system gathers together!

I went to the Southern Living Store that opened near me last weekend!!!!

 I tried pilates yesterday morning with two other teachers.  It was interesting, and I'll be writing about it soon!

I loving being out of school and being able to enjoy a morning coffee at my favorite downtown coffee shop!  I got the turtle mocha with SF caramel syrup--it was a wonderful treat!

What I'm dreading...
Not a single thing!!

What I'm working on...
Janie and I are working through Giddy Up, Eunice together, so we've got a phone call today to discuss the section on Mary and Elizabeth.  I highly recommend this book and will recap it at the end of June!

What I'm excited about...
Our upcoming beach trip!!

What I'm watching/reading...
I blogged yesterday about the RHONY and I'm also watching Southern Charm (both), the Kardashians, Friday Night Lights, The Office, Second Wives Club, and everything on the Hallmark Channel!!

Reading:  Here's my latest book review and I just started a Joshilyn Jackson book along with Giddy Up, Eunice.

What I'm listening to...
The Big Boo Cast podcast along with two other podcasts: The Gospel Coalition and Theocast.  I'm also listening to the latest John Mayer album on repeat!!

What I'm wearing...
 I'm obsessed with this shirt and pants (both on sale!!!!)

 This is my favorite workout shirt and I own it in 2 colors!

 This was my pilates outfit for yesterday--the tights are ones I've had for 2 years but they are such a classic at Athleta!

I bought this tank last year from Loft, but this is their new style from this summer.  I feel like I need to go buy it now!

What I'm doing this weekend...
Spending time with family!

What I'm looking forward to next month...
June is going to be an interesting month for us!  Aside from the things we've got planned, I also plan on reading a lot and watching lots of The Office!

What else is new...

Linking up with Jenn and Shelly and Shay


  1. Happy Summer! My husband and I just finished watching all seasons of Friends again and we're starting The Office soon. Also, the Southern Living store looks amazing! Texas needs one of those!!

  2. Whoohoo bring on the summer! You and your mom are adorable! That fried rice sounds scrumptious! Love all your workout wear and YES to lots of summer reading!

  3. I do always say I'm jealous-but teachers do NOT have an easy job. Sounds like you are having a wonderful first few days of break, enjoy! :-)

  4. The Office is one of my favorites! And you know I totally wish I had the summer off. Offices need to get on board with having some holiday 'breaks'! Love that Loft top on you - the colors are just so pretty!

  5. Souther Living THE STORE??? SWOON! I love that tank on you - the stripes are so cute!

  6. The Southern Living store looks amazing!!!

  7. Yay for being out of school for the summer!!! :)

  8. Southern Living STORE?! You might need to give us a little tour! I would be in heaven!

  9. OH my gosh, I can't believe that people have actually said that your job is easy. Bahahaha. I don't think I can think of a HARDER job than being a teacher. I don't think I could ever do it. I look up to all of you ladies who do... you are amazing!

  10. Thank goodness for summer. You definitely deserve a break from teaching! I have never heard of a Southern Living store, but it sounds wonderful!

  11. Yay for summer break!! Can't wait to hear what you thought of Pilates. I love a Pilates class!

  12. Sounds like your summer is off to a great start :) That is so fun that you and your mom get to go to teacher things together.

  13. I totally feel you on those "easy job" comments-so many people say that teachers have it easy because we get summers & every weekend off, but dealing with over 100 13 year olds all day long makes for one tired lady by the end of the week (& the end of the school year!)

    xoxo, SS

  14. Hooray for summer! Don't you love it when people make comments about wishing they had the summer off and how easy our jobs are? Ehh! That's my least favorite part about being a teacher!! Still loving those curls of yours!! Wish my hair did that!

  15. I just started reading Giddy Up, Eunice too! Loving it so far. I'm obsessed with their podcast now! Glad you got to check out the SL store...I imagine it was so dreamy!! I love The Office, a quote from Dwight that I posted on FB years ago popped up on my timehop yesterday. "I like the people that I work with generally...with four exceptions."
