What's Up Wednesday

Wednesday, January 30, 2019

Happy Wednesday, y'all!

Yesterday we had a "snow" day except that the snow never showed up--which is fine because I enjoyed an off day that we don't have to make up!  I haven't done a WUW post in a while, so I'm excited to be doing one today.

What we're eating this week...
Monday night I had book club so I ate at a restaurant with my book club and Dustin ate at the basketball game he went to.
Tuesday = chili
Wednesday = Shay's fiesta chicken but in tacos
Thursday = Dustin smokes a chicken
Friday = ??

What I'm reminiscing about...
Nothing at the moment!

What I'm loving...
-I took a break from drinking La Croix after reading all these articles about a lawsuit against them, but nothing came of that (trust me, I researched) so I'm loving having a daily La Croix!
-I asked for this retinol cream for Christmas and I was using it every other day to get my skin used to it, but now I'm to every night usage and I feel like my sun spots are gradually fading!
-I'm also loving that January is almost over haha!

-I've been following Krista's blog and vlogs for a while.  She recently lost her job working for MLB so she's been doing daily vlogs while she hunts for a new job.  I LOVE these because she lives in NYC and I find life there so fascinating.  I highly recommend y'all going to her channel and watching some of them!

What we've been up to...
Nothing super exciting.  I don't think January is the most exciting month of the year.

What I'm dreading...
Bus duty each day ha!  I only have maybe a week and a half left--thank goodness!

What I'm working on...
Working out a certain amount of days each week and eating healthy.  That will forever be a lifelong struggle for me--not just a January resolution.

What I'm excited about...

If you're new to my blog, my husband and I are in the process of adopting a baby and February is the month!!!  You can read a lot of my posts on adoption here and my posts on infertility here.

What I'm watching/reading...
I may be the last person on earth to start watching this show, but I just started watching The Great British Baking Show on Netflix and I am LOVING it!  I don't know why it took me so long to watch it because I love all things British, but this show is great and I love watching how the contestants on this show react vs how Americans react on cooking competitions.  And I want to try these British treats!

I'm also watching Million Dollar Listing LA, This Is Us, New Amsterdam, Hallmark movies, and I'm waiting on Real Housewives of BH to come back on!

I'm currently reading The Great Alone!

What I'm listening to...
Leon Bridges's latest album since Dustin and I are going to see him in late April.

What I'm wearing...
I've been terrible about outfit pictures so I vow to be better about it in February!
 A sweatshirt from college and my favorite cold weather running tights from Lululemon

 A coat from Old Navy (sold out) and my fave spanx leggings

 Lilly sweater (I linked the spring version) and spanx leggings

Southern sweatshirt and jeans (order 1 size down)

What I'm doing this weekend...
Packing the baby's suitcase and trying to gather some of our things together so we can be on stand by

What I'm looking forward to next month...

What else is new...

Bonus:  Favorite Valentine's Day tradition?
Dustin and I don't really have a Valentine's Day tradition other than either eating out somewhere nice or cooking a nice dinner at home.  Last year, I was recovering from surgery so he made the most wonderful filet mignon ever with a wine reduction sauce, so I've requested that again this year.  We're actually going to go out the weekend before as our "last meal out before baby"--it's the closest we can get as adoptive parents haha.
