What's Up Wednesday...

I thought it would be fun to join Sheaffer, Mel and Shay for their monthly What's Up Wednesday, so here we go... 

What we're eating this week... 

Goodness, three nights of activities has me scrambling for easy dinner ideas. This week's menu includes Frazzle Chicken Bake from the Fed+Fit Cookbook that every single one of you needs to buy now! 

We grabbed dinner out tonight but tomorrow I'm going to slice up some of these, brown them and serve with BBQ sauce for the kids with a side of greens and maybe some mac and cheese. 

I make mine with sweet potatoes, brussle sprouts, zucchini and squash. SO YUMMY. And so easy.

And, since it felt like fall today, I'm probably going to make some of these soon. 

What I'm Reminiscing About... 

I don't have TimeHop on my phone but FB memories tugged at my heart with this pic today...

How in the world has this tiny squishy baby grown so much that I can fit into his shoes???

What I'm Loving... 

Jane the Virgin, Season 2

This show is so dang funny y'all. SO DANG FUNNY. Seasons 1&2 are on Netflix. 

Speaking of things so funny that you pee your pants... 

What We've Been Up To...

Girls - Dance
Rad - Soccer
The King and I - Dance lessons
We5Kings - Are ridiculously addicted to Pokemon Go.

What I'm Dreading...

Some stuff has kind of shaken up our normal and I'm honestly dreading discovering what the new normal will be. 

What I'm Working On... 

Making it through a pile of books. I've started keeping my book in my car and I read a little bit every day in the pick up line after school. Those 20 minutes have been so awesome to have. 

What I'm Excited About...

The fall!!! I love the excitement of this season, especially living in a college town (and working on campus). The energy is palpable and it's just my favorite time of the year!

What I'm Watching/Reading... 

Me and every other Parenthood fan are already addicted to... 

I may have to surrender my love for binge watching and keep up with this one week to week! 

Current list of books: Just finished After You (not nearly as good as it's predecessor) and reading Rock Paper Scissor with Present over Perfect next on the list. 

What I'm Listening To... 

I wish I was one of those trendy people that would list  a series of podcasts I'm keeping up with, but I'm not. I am a music girl and my stations of choice on Pandora are Steve Tyrell and Need to Breathe. We also love to ask Alexa to play music - she's been playing a lot of Duke Ellington sounds which is extremely cool!

What I'm Wearing... 

I can't get enough of these flare jeans I snagged at Target...

And I can't wait for more days of dresses and boots. 

What I'm Doing This Weekend...


What's my Favorite Fall Recipe...

Those cookies.

And I'm falling asleep.... HAHA! Have a great Wednesday, y'all!


  1. Oh girl I need to get that cookbook! Sorry to hear you've had some changes, I hope they aren't too terrible and end up being A OK for you guys. Love those looks girl! Flare jeans are super cute...I'm so short I have to wear straight leg. At least we are in 2016 and straight leg doesn't mean pleats and waist at my tit line BAHAHAH! Happy weekend doing nothing....that's precious! xoxoxoxo

    1. Yes! Everyone needs this cookbook - it.is.amazing!! We will be just fine - just some unexpected changes with the hubby's work schedule that we are praying through! And I'm only 5'3... I have 4 inch wedges on in that picture and I still cut 3 inches off the jeans! Get you some!

  2. You guys dancing is the cutest! Those chicken sausages look delish-can I ask where they are from?

    1. It has been so much fun and I'm already looking forward to Sunday!

  3. Dance lessons?! That sounds so fun! Wish my husband would go for something like that! Love your dress with boots- perfect for fall! :)


    1. I was surprised mine said yes... but I guess after 17 years of watching me dance with other guys, he finally gave in! HA!

  4. I need that cookbook in my life! That chicken sausage, sweet potato, zucchini medley sounds yummy!! I bought some apple chicken sausage at Trader Joe's & didn't like it. We're getting more & more HEB's in the metroplex, I'll have to check their brand out. You know, originally I'm a central Texas gal, & HEB has never steered me wrong yet!! Now, I'm craving a Taste of San Antonio coffee!!
    This Is Us is amazing TV! It's too bad we can't binge watch it because I have a feeling I would watch it all in one sitting!! Soooo good!!
    Have a great rest of the week!!

    1. We are kindred spirits, friend... San Antonio blend is all we drink! And this sausage is so dang good... they also have spinach and feta but this is my favorite! I'm about to watch last night's episode now!!

    2. What??? Spinach & Feta is my love language!! I'm googling the closest HEB right now. I need to try that!

  5. This Is Us is the best! Dance lessons sounds fun! My husband and I took dancing lessons before our wedding and it was a blast!

    1. We have had so much fun! Now if we could just work up the courage to go dancing! HA!

  6. I'm totally ordering the cookbook today! I'm totally sucked in to This is Us....and could not be more excited to be starting from the beginning!

    1. I'm sucked in and not happy about it! AHHH... if they keep ending the way they do I won't be able to wait a week to watch!

  7. I'm so obsessed with Cassy Joy. :)

    Also, I just bought Paper Scissors Rock! Allison spoke at Prince of Peace last weekend and she is freaking amazing!!!

    miss you! love you!

    1. Cassy Joy is going to be my bestie - she just doesn't know it yet. HAHA!

      And Allison is the best - I secretly stalk her too but its a bit more awkward since she lives here and is actual friends with lots of my friends. I'm loving her words!

      Miss & love you tons!
