What's Up Wednesday



{What We're Eating This Week}

I recently made this Green Goddess Roasted Chicken for Jon.  I used chicken breast and paired it with a spinach salad.  He seemed to really enjoy it, so I'm adding it the menu again for next week.

This 'Green Goddess' roasted chicken is a heavenly and healthy dinner:


{What I'm Reminiscing About}

This memory recently popped up on Facebook.  It's a picture of my sister, Kimmy, and myself when we were both pregnant at the same time.  These were such special moments, not only as we were expecting, but also after the arrival of our babies.  She was, and most definitely still is, my rock.





{What I'm Loving}

The Bachelor and Fixer Upper.

You guys, it's like Christmas every Monday and Tuesday night.  I usually put together a snack/treat for myself along with a La Croix and I sit down and I don't do anything, except watch those shows.  It's glorious and I love it.


{What We've Been Up To}

We're currently contemplating updating the exterior of our home, so over the weekend we visited a model home for ideas.  The builder also does exterior remodels, so we thought we'd check out ALL the finishes, including the interior.  I took a couple pictures of the outside, but I just couldn't resist snapping away for ideas on the inside.

Isn't this place beautiful?!

{What I'm Dreading}

I'm supposed to be running an 8K in a couple weeks and although I have been running, I'm nowhere near ready for an 8K.  A very slow and relaxed 5K, sure...maybe...but an 8K?  It's going to hurt...

...I'm sure I'll throw up when I cross the finish line.  :0


{What I'm Working On}

Everything and nothing at all.

I feel like I have a million projects going on in my head for our house.  I need to settle in on one project and just go with it.  I plan to order this light fixture for our entryway so that hopefully by the time it arrives (which won't be until mid-February) I'll have more focus in my life.  ;)




{What I'm Excited About}

Sunshine...if it'll ever show up again.  It's been pretty darn gloomy here lately and I'm in some serious need of some vitamin D.  I don't mind it staying so dark so early, but I do mind needing to turn on all of our lights in the middle of the day WITH the curtains open.  Come on sunshine!


{What I'm Watching/Reading}

If you've made it this far down the list, I hope you're not easily offended.

I recently noticed a good friend of mine over on Facebook had commented about how good this book was.  I read some reviews (which were highly rated and not to mention absolutely hilarious) and decided to order a copy for myself.  I've yet to start reading it, so I'll let you know what I think about it in the coming days.  I mean, it sure does sound intriguing, right?



{What I'm Listening To}

These three podcasts!  I loooove them!  I like to tune in while doing laundry, taking a bath, driving or just so I can hear an adult voice throughout the day.  ;)

Marriage More Podcast
8 Minute Millionaire
Young House Love Has A Podcast


{What I'm Wearing}

Do you really want to know?

Here you'll find a wrinkly, yet deliciously comfortable sweater accompanied by my usual black yoga pants and Jon's socks, of course. ;)

The good news is I used Lindsay's awesome OOTD selfie tutorial to take this picture and I totally get it now.  I was always holding the camera the wrong way (thanks, girl!)  The bad news - I need to seriously work on the whole cute outfit thing.  Haha!

*sigh*



{What I'm Doing This Weekend}

This weekend we'll be visiting with friends, but let me tell you about last weekend, friends.  Last weekend I went to see Theresa Caputo with some girlfriends of mine at a casino.  It was a great time!

  I actually applied two coats of mascara, I wore earrings AND I brushed my hair.

{What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month}

We'll be heading to an indoor waterpark and although I'm not a fan of wearing a swimsuit, my excitement to watch and enjoy the kiddos far exceeds any reservations I have over wearing my skivvies around a bunch of strangers.  ;)

Luckily, I recently found and blogged about some cute swimsuits I found over on Amazon.  The two suits I ordered are extremely comfortable and offer a pretty good amount of coverage.

{What Else Is New}

Eliza and I treated ourselves to a quick visit to the coffee shop the other day.  I purchased a much needed latte with an extra shot of espresso and Eliza enjoyed this yummy cupcake...



...While there I noticed this table and asked if I could buy it...LOL!

FYI - It's not for sale.  It's just for customers to sit at and enjoy their morning/afternoon cup of joe.  I gave the coffee shop my phone number and asked them to call me with a price.  They're either considering a price or scared/irritated/annoyed of the woman who ask to buy their coffee shop furniture.  Either way, I hope I hear back from them!  Bahaha!


Thanks for stopping by this little blog of mine!

Have a nice day and if you happen to feel sunshine on your skin could you please package some up and send it to Michigan?  Thanks!

Marie :)
