What’s Up Wednesday – 1/29/20

Happy Wednesday! The kids are off school today for a teacher work day and I am working from home. I’ve never really worked from home before so I am a little curious to see how it will go with the kids around. I am linking up with Sheaffer and Shay to share what’s up with us lately.

WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK…
Sunday – We ate out for the school fundraiser day
Monday – leftovers from Jeff’s work bull roast
Tuesday – leftovers from Jeff’s work bull roast
Wednesday – leftovers from Jeff’s work bull roast
Thursday, Friday, Saturday – resort food for the grownups and whatever my mom wants to make for the kids.
That was kind of boring this month! Sorry! We have been eating Tex Mex Guts this month and its always a favorite!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO…
All the sports. This season seems to be sporting overload. The boys do play on a few year round teams (swimming, soccer, baseball) but I feel like everything ramped up after Christmas break. We’ve been to 3 swim meets, 1 soccer tournament, a bunch of baseball practices, and 13 basketball games this month. The boys are having fun and really improving so it’s definitely worth it. All that car time does mean more reading for everyone so that makes me pretty happy!

WHAT I’M DREADING…
Right now I am dreading two things – our super early alarm on Thursday to get to the airport and coming back to work on Tuesday to a super long day with conferences. That’s all. Everything else is good!

WHAT I’M WORKING ON…
I am working on a professional certification right now on my work from home day. I am finalizing our summer travel/camps/relaxing schedule. This is a little random, but I am also working on inventorying our freezer so I can better plan our meals around it. I have been working on consistently getting up to exercise before work and I’d say I am at about 80%. I’m working on not using the snooze button and just getting up to do it!

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT…
A few days away with this guy:

And some good friends to kick off my 40th birthday world tour! ✈️

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING…
I haven’t been watching much. I still turn on Hallmark every evening when I crawl into bed but I usually fall right to sleep.
I have been reading a bunch. I am on the third book in the Mason series by Elizabeth Berg. I love them all!! Go read them now!

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO…
I have been listening to podcasts while I work lately. I am really loving Anne Bogel’s What Should I Read Next. I love that she doesn’t suggest all the new, hot books and introduces me to new ones.
I have also been listening to Zac Brown Band after a recommendation from my friend Jamie!
I’ve also been listening to this – Luke got a recorder and it is very exciting!

WHAT I’M WEARING…
I picked up this dress at Loft the other day and it is the softest, comfiest, warmest dress around! I felt so good wearing it all ay at school!
A cozy turtleneck sweater because it has been COLD!!
I wore this fancy safety vest when I was a Marshall for the boys’ swim meet on Saturday.
Lots of cardigans and fun necklaces – they are part of my librarian uniform, you know!
Cora’s Den bubble gum necklaces. I love them!!

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND…
A whole lot of this

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH…
Next month is Declare It Day!! I love to celebrate Declare It Day and set my intentions for the year with my girlfriends. Everyone starts thinking resolutions in the beginning of January, but by February I feel like I have really narrowed down what I want to focus on this year. We are celebrating a week late this year, but it will still be just as wonderful! Check out my 2019 and 2018 Declare It Day celebrations. You should also go to Fellow Flowers to see what it is really about!

WHAT ELSE IS NEW…
I am starting to read and find some new authors for my annual Summer Beach Reads post. You can still count on my to share my favorite ladies of summer (Elin, Dorothea, Mary Alice, Mary Kay, Kristy, Jamie, Beatriz, etc.) but I am hoping to add some new authors to the list too!

Have a great day full of sunshine and books!
