Today is What’s Up Wednesday which means it’s time to link up with some of my favorite blogging ladies and fill you all in on a little bit of what we’ve been up to lately!
WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Jared and I are both doing Weight Watchers right now so we’re eating as much WW friendly food as possible! I’ll be posting a progress update each month and will share our favorite meals, recipes & snacks in it.
On the menu this week:
Health(tier) Chicken Pot Pie (recipe coming soon!)
WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Getting back into the swing of business season this year has me reminiscing about this time last year! It’s amazing how much we’ve learned and how much our business has grown since last year as well.
WHAT I’M LOVING:
I started T25 this week and am loving it!! It’s 25 minutes of hard core working out which is exactly what I was looking for. I love that I can get my big workout done for the day before work and that I’m burning a ton of calories in 25 minutes. It’s definitely challenging but that’s exactly what I wanted. If you want something that is time efficient but still effective, check this out! I am going to be posting my results each month from WW & T25 so stay tuned for those results!
My stepper! I love to walk on my stepper in the mornings or at night while we watch our shows. I walk outside as much as I can but sometimes the weather prevents it or it’s already dark when I have time. I love being able to stay active at night instead of just sitting while enjoying our shows! It’s so price reasonable and light so you can move it around wherever you want to use.
With all the working out I’ve been doing lately, I’ve been searching for affordable activewear. I’m obviously trying to slim down so I don’t want to spend a ton of money on clothes that may not fit in a month or two. I picked up this adorable pullover from Macy’s this weekend and LOVE it! It’s light which is perfect for spring and comes in lots of cute colors. It’s on sale for less than $15 right now so run & grab one (or five). You’ll love them!
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Date nights when we can fit them in! We’re kicking off our busy season so most of the time we’re working a ton and just want to eat dinner and go to bed. We are trying to still fit in date nights as much as possible though to make sure we’re spending time together and talking about non-business things. This is seriously hard to do when you’re in business with your spouse! I’d be lying if I said we didn’t sometimes talk business while on our date nights. It seems so much less stressful when you’re dressed up & eating yummy food though 😉
Adding touches of spring throughout the house!
We are working on finishing up the last few spaces in our house that aren’t decorated yet! We purchased a new accent couch and are still working on getting it placed in the right spot. As soon as we do I’ll share before & after photos! Also, please ignore my bathroom rugs drying on the floor in the background.
My granny & I went to see Beauty and the Beast and it was SO good! We absolutely loved the music.
WHAT I’M DREADING:
WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Growing this space
Decorating a few spaces in our home
A new business plan (I forgot how much work this is!!)
WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
I finally chose the blush color in my new tote for spring so y’all won’t have to listen to me complaining about trying to decide anymore 🙂 I’m excited for it to get here and am hoping I love it! There’s just something about a new, clean and organized purse to kick off a new season. If you want a new spring/summer purse under $50, be sure to check this one out.
WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
Designated Survivor, When Calls the Heart (that last episode, oh my), Lethal Weapon, and cleaning up our DVR from all it’s backed up shows. We’re so far behind on watching most of our shows so we’re still watching episodes of shows that are currently on a hiatus.
I’m going to admit something that y’all are probably going to hate me for. I had been begging Jared to start This is Us. We had been recording it but couldn’t get to our favorite shows much less a new one. He finally gave in and we started it and gasp…I just don’t love it. Maybe it’s because I expected to LOVE it so much but I just don’t. I like it and I enjoy watching it but I’m not understanding the obsession. We’re only 6 episodes in so is that my problem?!
Finishing up The Power of a Praying Wife and getting ready to start Uninvited. I love to read but am having trouble dedicating the time to get through my books lately. I promise I’ll finish these and review them eventually!!
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Either the news or something on my DVR while I’m working. Typically I’m watching the news or Reba during the day. The news to stay updated and Reba to make me laugh when I’m tired of hearing about all the crazy stuff going on in the world. I need a new show to binge watch while I work. Recommendations? I’ve already watched Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl & Parenthood.
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Anyone else OVER winter clothes? Like, I legitimately hate all winter items that I own right now and refuse to wear them anymore unless I absolutely have to. I switched our closets over to transition and spring pieces and it already puts me in a better mood when I look inside our master closet. I am getting rid of a ton and am working on rebuilding my closet. You can see my spring office wear wish list items here and my spring closet wish list here.
WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We have some business work to do, church, weekly errands and hopefully some relaxing at home together!
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Nothing super specific, I just love a new month. It just feels fresh and I’m ready to tackle April! We have a few fun things planned but mainly we’ll just be working our butts off!
WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
That’s about it right now!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPRING WARDROBE PIECE:
Hmmm….probably aviators. I love a good pair of aviators and love when spring rolls around. I love wearing some cute jeans/shorts, a solid top and some aviators for a cute casual look in the spring.
