What's Up Wednesday | February

Oh, hey Wednesday! I'm back with another What's Up Wednesday linkup with a few of my favorite bloggers! Check their blogs out to see what it's all about, but basically it's just a monthly check in to see what's up! :)

What we're eating this week...

Monday: Steaks, mac and cheese, sweet potatoes
Tuesday: Pineapple Chicken, rice, zucchini
Wednesday: Taco pic, refried beans, guacamole
Thursday:French Dip Sandwiches, sweet potato fries
Friday & Saturday: Out Of Town
Sunday: Garlic shrimp, mashed potatoes, asparagus

What I'm reminiscing about...

This time last year we were enjoying nice warm weather in south Texas complete with my palm trees! There isn't much I miss about south Texas but the constant warm weather and palm trees I definitely do!  

What I'm loving...

Being blonde again! I mean, I never went super dark this year but I've had an ombre for quite a while. It's nice to see the blonde again! 

What we've been up to...

Lots of softball and things related!


 What I'm dreading...

Starting back to school. I know it'll be so worth it when I'm done but I've been out for so long! I've gotta find my groove again. 

What I'm working on...

Still finishing up the living room. Little by little we are getting things done!

What I'm excited about...

On Saturday I ordered these sandals and they came in yesterday! Target is killing it with their new spring things! While I cannot really get to enjoy them right now, they still make me super happy!

What I'm watching/reading...

Watching: The Bachelor - I really haven't been watching much tv lately.

Reading: The Choice - if I can get started! I've read a couple pages but just haven't had the time to sit and really read!

What I'm listening to...

Good old Texas Country. Josh Abbott Band, Cody Johnson, Aaron Watson - ya know, those guys!

What I'm wearing...

Currently my pjs. :) But lately this tunic has been on repeat! I have two colors, two more on the way and the shirt like it! To say I love them would be an understatement.

What I'm doing this weekend...

Softball tournament in Stephenville. Go Lady Cats!

What I'm looking forward to next month...

Lots to look forward to in March! St. Paddy's Day, Easter, my nephews birthday, and March madness!


What else is new...

I've started planning a few little trips for us this summer. We were going to do Disney but decided to hold off on that until I finish school. We aren't real sure where we'll go yet but will probably just stay in Texas and thanks to us being almost right in the middle of Texas, anywhere we go will be at least a 6 hour drive. I can dream of Disney and somewhere tropical right?


What's my favorite Easter tradition...

Of course getting fancy for Easter Sunday (each year we alternate between Tate's family church and mine since we never went to the same), dying eggs with the family and our infamous Egg toss! It's a huge deal! You and your partner get a raw (yes raw!) egg and toss it taking a step back after each catch. You play until all eggs have been broken. Some break in hands, some break on the ground, some break and splatter all over the catcher, and then some oddly just don't break! That one usually just ends up on someones head. My family has done this for as long as I remember and it's always such a competition. Sadly Tate and I have never won. Maybe this will be our year! Ha!

So there's February's check in and my first with Chasing Texas!
