What's Up Wednesday...on a Thursday.....The Story of My Life Now



I've taken so much time off from blogging that I didn't know where to start. When I read Shay's "What's Up Wednesday" post I figured this would be perfect. So today I'm linking up with Shay, Sheaffer and Mel for my edition of What's Up Wednesday.

1. What We're Eating This Week....

Jared and I are both on day 9 of Whole30. I feel super accomplished to make it this far but it is kicking my tail. I've had many times this past week that I've wanted to throw in the towel. I mean how many eggs can one person eat. If you have anything you really have liked on this let me know!

2. What I'm Reminiscing About....

One of my most favorite people at work passed away this past weekend. When I tell you he was the epitome of a Servant Leader I wouldn't even be scratching the surface, He had such an impact on FedEx and every person he encountered he helped and truly cared for as well. He was the manager that interviewed me and hired me and I wanted to be on his team so bad. However I was placed on another team but that didn't matter to him he helped me just as much as if I was on his team. He had a huge impact on Jared and both of us hope to leave an impact like he did to those we are around. I mean how could you not love this guy???




3. What I'm Loving....

I'm loving that the weather will be cooler this whole weekend. Although 70 degrees last weekend was nice it's January I need cold weather!

4. What We've Been Up To....

Not a whole bunch. Were in the process of getting our house ready to sell so alot of cleaning and purging. Nothing that exciting and we haven't been out to eat really at all bc of Whole30.

5. What I'm Dreading....

Keeping our house ready for showings with a dog and a 2 year. It sounds terrible!

6. What I'm Working On....

Myself. I need some help in the wifeing (I know that's not a word) and parenting and friending department. I'm working hard on being present and putting away the phone. I also need to work on spending time with the Big Man upstairs daily too!
Updated: I purchased the book Jesus Always per Shay's recomendation and am loving it so far. (I've only read one day.)



7. What I'm Excited About....

Finishing Whole30. I'm loving how I feel but am wanting to eat some sweets and rice. I don't think I'll add much dairy back in to my diet but am missing some of my snacks. 

8. What I'm Watching/Reading....

We started the OA yesterday on NetFlix. I also watched Bridget Jones' Diary and absolutely love it. 

I'm also reading The Hating Game by Sally Thorne


and 

Daring Greatly by Brene Brown





My goal is 36 books this year. 


9. What I'm Listening To....

I've been on Podcast kick lately. My favorites are Dave Ramsey, Life Church Sermons and I recently discovered the Village Church Sermons. Matt Chandler is a very engaging speaker and keep my attention!

10. What I'm Wearing.....

A whole lot of leggings and tunics. I'm attempting to get more work clothes next month so stay tuned,

11. What I'm Doing This Weekend....

A whole lot of nothing. Probably cleaning and organizing and keeping my fingers crossed for a trip to Ikea. 

12. What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month....

Completing the Whole30 and celebrating LOTS of birthday. It's my mom's, Jared's, mine, my cousin, her daughter, my sister's boyfriend and two of my very closest friends!

13. What Else is New....

Declan wrote an "A" for the first time yesterday. It's very abstract but for his first time I'm giving him an "A+"!!
