January 2018

whatsupwed1WUWquestions editIn some ways it feels like I’ve already gotten used to 2018 and in other ways, HOW IS IT already 2018?!

What we’re eating this week:My Winter Couscous Salad.My Easy Tomato Soup with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

What I’m reminiscing about:Eric and I were just reminiscing about our little getaway to a bed and breakfast last year. We went mid-week, ordered sushi, relaxed, and woke up to a winter wonderland, which was the cherry on top of the entire experience. We loved it and have another one planned soon. 🙂


What I’m loving:

This basket. 

What we’ve been up to:

We have been binging, purging, and donating A LOT. Think: every closet.

What I’m dreading:

To be honest some nights I dread sleep lately. Obviously I’m needing and wanting it but I also really have a difficult time not sleeping on my back and/or stomach. I bought a body pillow, which has helped some nights but it hasn’t been the easiest. Of course it’s all for a much bigger blessing overall. 🙂

What I’m working on:Creating some chat books from our wedding.

What I’m excited about:

 We bought this rug for the nursery and I LOVE it! I’m so excited to see it all come together and I’ll be sure to post pictures! 

What I’m watching/reading:We have been watching an episode of The Crown almost every night and almost finished both seasons.

I know, I know. You’re probably thinking I’ve been reading these for months and you’re exactly right. WonderOf Mess and Moxie, and Mama Natural have still been the books I’ve been picking up over the last month(s) and working my way through. I’m trying to get more reading in these days and using it as down time rather than scrolling through my phone. Any book suggestions..especially new mamas out there?

What I’m listening to:

Podcasts. I listened to the Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey recently where she interviewed Lauren Scruggs Kennedy and can’t stop thinking about it. Her perspective is so encouraging and such a good reminder of what’s important in life.

What I’m wearing:


Nike SneakersHunter Boots. Leggings.

Comfort, warmth, and staying dry from the snow has been the main goal this month.

What I’m doing this weekend:It’s birthday weekend because I’m going from one birthday get together to another! 🙂 (And I’m not complaining about that one bit!)

What I’m looking forward to next month:

Hopefully putting sickness behind us?! I was sick, then Eric was sick and I just hope some more health comes in February!

What else is new:

There are so many changes ahead but for the moment, not too darn much. 🙂

 Bonus question: What’s your favorite soup recipe?Potato, Sausage, and Leek Soup is one of my absolute favorites! Especially for cold days and nights. 🙂
