It’s that time again! I’m excited to be joining mixandmatchmama and her crew to participate in What’s Up Wednesday and catch you guys up on what’s been goin’ on in my life lately ❤
I’d absolutely LOVE for you guys to join me on this tag – it’s my favorite one. Be sure to comment and let me know if you’ve done it, or tag me in your post so I can’t miss it! ❤
What We’re Eating This Week:
On Monday, I followed my favorite YouTube chef Laura (from LauraInTheKitchen) recipe for her crock pot brown sugar ham. To say it was delicious is an understatement! I put it together with a sweet potato and au gratin (Hectors request)…so easy, so yummy!
Another go-to has been the Trader Joe meatballs that Andrea had shouted out on her Instagram story. Being Italian, I never made anything other than fresh meatballs. These frozen meatballs are awesome, friends!
What I’m Reminiscing About:
We’ve had some teaser days of sunshine with high 70’s/low 80’s temps, which has me reminiscing on all my summer day trips. In particular, my day trips to my FAVORITE place on earth – Martha’s Vineyard. Every year on my birthday, this is the only thing I want to do, visit MV. I get antsy around this time of year for these adventures to begin. I’m reminiscing all of these amazing memories and getting excited to make new ones!
Here’s an idea of a gorgeous Martha’s Vineyard summer day…
What I’m Loving:
Lately I’ve been stopping at Trader Joe’s for certain items each week, and I’ve been grabbing one or two bunches of fresh flowers each time. I’m in the Spring mood y’all, and seeing these flowers on my kitchen counter just brightens up my mood!
The most recent bunch were these beauties…
What I’ve Been Up To:
I’ve been in a Spring cleaning mode. I went through my entire closet and bureau, and donated THREE bags of clothes I won’t wear any more. I got rid of some shoes, some purses, some makeup… just making room for new, right? 😉
What I’m Dreading:
Other than Mondays, not dreading much over here. The power of positivity, people!
What I’m Working On:
I’ve been working on a really exciting post to share with you guys! A lot of photo taking was required for this one, but it’s going to be one of my ‘collections’ and I think you guys will love it! 🙂 ❤
What I’m Excited About:
I’m excited that the summer months are beginning. First comes Mother’s Day, then Memorial Day weekend, (which happens to be one of my best friends birthday weekend :)) then my own birthday festivities, which means beach trips and sunshine! Jenny – let our adventures begin (asap!!!)
What I’m Watching/Reading:
As long as it’s on TV, I am current with Grey’s Anatomy.
This is one fact you must know about me.
I look forward to my TGIT every week and have a strong opinion that Shonda Rhimes is the best television writer of all time… 😉
These days, my boyfriend & I are watching the newest televised season of Prison Break. This show is on Netflix, and I fell in love with the (two) main characters years ago watching seasons 1-4. I’m so excited Lincoln & Michael are back!
HOWEVER – I am in desperate need of new TV recommendations! Please help!
As for what I’m reading, I’m currently deep into Lisa Scottoline’s:
This is the second book I’ve read from Scottoline, and so far so good! I found this one just browsing through Barnes and Noble. 🙂
What I’m Listening To:
Nothing new here to say, still loving my Apple Music subscription. Lately on my playlist there has been a lot of…
Kendrick Lamar’s new album ‘DAMN‘ andddddd I’m still loving Ed Sheeran’s ‘Divide‘ – it’s been on repeat for a month now! Clearly I don’t stick to just one genre 😉
What I’m Wearing:
This photo sums up two different things I’ve been wearing (and loving) these days…
boots & waves!
I’ve been braiding my hair in double braids as often as possible so I can sleep on them and wake up to voluminous waves! On this particular day, my hair was braided while it was still damp and had my (favorite) sugar cream product in it.
The other thing I just can’t phase out yet are my trusty boots. The pair I’m wearing in the photo are my favorite black over the knee pair. I recently bought a camel suede pair that I’m in love with!
What I’m Doing This Weekend:
I’m getting things done around the house and relaxing with my love on Saturday, and Sunday I’ll be celebrating my beautiful Mum with my favorite people. I can’t wait for this weekend! ❤ ❤
What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month:
Next month? Next month is June and June is birthday month! Not only is it my birthday month, but the beginning of summer… and I cannot wait! Let the day trips in the sunshine beginnnnnn ❤
What Else Is New?
Not much else is new… just waiting on that sunshine to peak through. We’ve had some warm days, but overall it’s still chilly in Massachusetts. One thing that IS new, is that I’m switching purses tonight! I snapped it on my way out the door today.
How cute is this Kate Spade cross body bag?!
My sweet mom got it for me for Christmas and I’ve been waiting for springtime to break it out of the purse collection! I love me some navy and white for Spring/Summer!
I’m tellin’ you guys, this is one of my favorite posts to share with you every month. Now… my office phone is ringing and my stacks of paperwork aren’t going to complete themselves… back to work! 🙂 🙂 Happy Wednesday!
What have you been up to?
