What's Up Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!  Today I am linking up with Mel, Shay & Shaeffer for What's Up Wednesday!  It's been quite a while since I have done one of these posts =)

What we're eating this week:
I am really really bad at meal planning.  I need to get into a groove I guess as far as meal planning goes and maybe I can get it to work.  But last night I came home from work to a home cooked meal from Brian and it was delish!

Salmon, green beans with red onions, and rice pilaf.  He's a pretty great cook!!

What I'm Reminiscing about:
No snow! ha!  I know so much of you in the south have had it worse than we have in the snow department.  We have the equipment here to clean up snow basically as soon as it falls, so I feel really bad for all you that have been stuck in your homes now for days because of it.  But yeah, i'm reminiscing about green grass, trees with leaves on them and warm sunshine ;)

What I'm Loving:
Watching Emma play basketball.  She had her last game last weekend and she actually missed it because we were at my parents for the weekeend.  But she still has 3 weekend long tournaments that she is playing in, so I'm anxious to watch her play in them!

What We've Been Up To:
Ummm.  Let me think about this one.  Work.  Ha!  We work a lot.  Brian much more than me.  But you can read about our weekend off HERE in this post.  We had an awesome weekend!

What I'm dreading:
There is really nothing coming up that I am dreading.  I do dread laundry every.single.day. hehe =)  But other than that, really nothing.

What I'm working On:
Filling out my Plum Paper planner!  I'm working on putting our work schedules for the remainder of the year in it.  And incase you missed my post about my planner, you can find that HERE.

What I'm Excited About:
We are going away for the weekend with the girls and my side of the family the first weekend in February and I cannot wait!  We usually go every year, and Emma always has so much fun with her cousins =)

What I'm listening to/Watching:
If we are in the car, it's always always on The Highway on SirusXM.  At home, i'm all about the Bachelor right now, HGTV's Fixer Upper (which I am highly addicted to) and the Today Show on NBC =)

What I'm wearing:
I really wish I had some really awesome outfit I could share with you all, Ha!  But when i'm home, it's usually comfy clothes, and when I'm out and about, jeans, some sort of long sleeve shirt and my LLBean boots.  Total fashion statement for sure! haha ;)

What I'm doing this weekend:
Work, and more work.  It's our weekend to work unfortunately.

What I'm looking forward to next month:
I'm looking forward to going away next month for a weekend, i'm also looking forward to getting Emma ready for the Father/Daughter Valentines Day dance with Brian =)

Bonus Question:
What is your favorite Valentines Day Treat:
I'm not going to share the recipe just yet, because I have that ready for another day soon, but for Valentines I always make Emma a really yummy popcorn treat with white chocolate.  I'll post about it soon =)

I hope you all have a great Wednesday!!  Be sure to linkup as well!


  1. Yum - Great job Brian!! Looks great. And daddy/daughter dance - what FUN!!

    1. He did a good job with the meal for sure =)

  2. Brian rocks! That supper looks amazing! Isn't it the best coming home to such a yummy meal?!?

    1. It is the best! Especially when we have to be at basketball practice by 6pm and I don't get home from work until almost 5. It took the stress of me for sure =)

  3. Dang that dinner looks good!! And those laundry memes, hilarious!! Going to check out your planner post now :)

  4. What a fun meal. I love salmon. And I'm with ya, I am ready for nice weather. I'm trying not to think about it too much, because we have a long ways to go still. At least when it gets here, we will fully appreciate it, right!? :)

    1. Salmon is probably my favorite meal ever =) and yes on the weather for sure!!

  5. By the looks of that delicious and beautiful dinner...I am thinking Brian should be in charge of meal planning! HA! :) So fun you have a trip to look forward to in February! And can't wait to read about your yummy Valentine's treat you make Emma...my girls love white chocolate and popcorn!!

    1. I couldn't agree more that Brian should be in charge of meal planning!! Haha

  6. Can Brian come and cook for me?!
    How fun that you have a weekend getaway planned soon. Our family needs one of those in the worst way, but Scott is SWAMPED at work right now. So much so, I'll see him exactly 6 days the entire month of February (thank goodness it's the shortest month)!!
    Fixer Upper is our FAVORITE show! I want Chip and Jo to come and do our next house. They're amazing.
    Can't wait to see your Valentine popcorn!

    1. That stinks that Scott is that busy at work. Hopefully you guys can find some time to spend together soon!

  7. If we ever win the lottery my husband promised to move Chip & Joanna to TN to design a new home for us. haha
    Love The Highway on XM...I'm hooked and will prob never listen to regular radio again...it's great!

  8. I LOVE Salmon!!! YUM!
    And, I also love the shows you are watching!
    Thanks for linking up with us! :)

    1. Thanks so much for hosting and stopping by!=)
