What’s Up Wednesday


It’s the last What’s Up Wednesday of 2018! This is madness because where did the year go?!?!

I’m  linking up with  Mix & Match MamaSheaffer Told Me To, and The Larson Lingo.

[what we’re eating this week]


I’m kind of addicted to this salad (and not because it looks like Christmas).

Spinach, strawberries, shallot, blue cheese, beet chips, and vinaigrette.  You can even add chicken.


[what i’m reminiscing about]


I really wish I had some In-N-Out Burger. That was amazing.

[what i’m loving]


For sure – this is my favorite time of year.

[what we’ve been up to]


We got invited to a pirate birthday party last week and we decided to go as Captain Hok and the Crocodile.

It was a really fun idea.

And I also sweated to death in the costume. hehe

[what i’m dreading]


As I mentioned before, my dad broke his back a few weeks ago.

He has a 12 week recovery.

He just asked the doctor if he can just take the brace off and be okay to return to regular work.

[face palm]

It’s going to a really long 8 more weeks!

[what i’m working on]


I have my niece for our homemade secret santa gift and I’m making her princess play doh.

Or at least I’m trying to do it.

We’ll see how it turns out.

[what i’m excited about]


The Hubster is going to be so excited to open this up on Christmas morning. 🙂

[what i’m watching/reading]


There’s nothing like watching your favorite Christmas movies and wrapping presents with hot chocolate. 🙂 Best feeling ever.

(Although now my back hurts because I can’t sit like that for 3 hours anymore…hehe)


And I’m still reading Christmas books! 🙂

Check out my other Christmas reads.

[what i’m listening to]


The Holiday Favorites station on my Alexa (and my computer at work) are pretty amazing.

Also the Hallmark Channel Radio on SiriusXM is fantastic.

[what i’m wearing]


Similar Jacket: Caslon Drape Cardigan | Nordstrom
Tank Top: Luxe Tank | Old Navy
Similar Jeans: AE Next Level Jegging | American Eagle
Sneakers: Tree Runners | Allbirds

This is my Christmas shopping outfit!

I can’t say enough amazing things about my Allbirds sneakers. This is my second pair and they are worth every single penny, friends.

They’re lightweight. You don’t have to wear socks and your feet don’t sweat. They come in fun colors too!

[what i’m doing this weekend]


I’m finishing up all my wrapping!

[what i’m looking forward to next month]


I’m hoping to get a quick trip to the Kennedy Space Center for The Hubster’s birthday.

Fingers crossed I can get it all to work out.

[what else is new]


Who else needs these for New Year’s Eve?!

[bonus: what’s your favorite last minute gift]


So my go-to last minute gift are Christmas dishes.

I’m pretty lucky in that I work in an office park with a Lenox outlet and that makes it really easy for me to run in and grab something that’s a million percent off.

In fact, I have a feeling I’ll be there at lunch today…

  1. I love Hallmark Christmas movies, but I am also with you, nothing beats the classics and favorites! I am planning on watching all the movies I can in the next few days. Have a wonderful day!
