What's Up Wednesday | May

I seriously feel like I just did What's Up Wednesday for April! Why is this year flying by so quickly?! I still have no pictures from my computer, the bathroom still looks like a work zone, and I have no fence in the backyard.. more on that later. As we speak (talk, read, idk!) Tate is at the doctor getting checked for Strep. I sure hope he doesn't have it, but it would explain why we both feel so bad! I just hope if he has it, I don't! Yuck! Anyways, didn't mean to be a Debbie Downer! Happy Wednesday! :)

What we're eating this week...

Sunday - grilled pork chops and veggies
Monday - tacos
Tuesday - BBQ (spring sports banquet)
Wednesday - Steaks (again, on the grill!)
Thursday - Teriyaki salmon
Friday - Sunday we'll be at the lake... probably grilling some more!

What I'm reminiscing about...

Every single day this week and some of last week somebody mentioned Lajitas or Big Bend and it has me reminiscing about when Tate and I went down for a few days. It was our first 'real' vacation alone and I think we're ready to do that again! We had such a great time!

What I'm loving lately...

When I went on a search for a new makeup and primer I sampled this one from Clinique and so far, I'm loving it! The sample is almost out so I need to decide it I want to purchase or not. Decisions, decisions!

What we've been up to...
Bathroom drama, a little bit of home renovating and  7 on 7 football... nothing too exciting, but enough to keep us busy.

What I'm dreading...

The mess that is about to be my bathroom. It wouldn't be such a big deal it it wasn't the main bathroom in the house. I'm hoping there's no mold and the mess will be minor - I can only hope!

What I'm working on...

Since we decided to hire a painter I had to pick designs for each room. I'm just about finished - our bedroom is the only one I cannot decide on! I found this on pinterest and loved it, however, Tate did not like the yellow. He chose a dark red, I like navy. The colors look great together but I really don't want a red/white/blue patriotic look or a nautical look... Can I do this? I really wanted to stripe one wall and I think navy stripes with white/gray bedding and pops of red would look great. Whyyy must this be such a hard decision?!

What I'm excited about...

I'm off Friday so this mama is getting a mani/pedi before we head to the lake! Woohoo!

What I'm watching/reading...

The Bachelorette, of course! My top three are Jordan, Robby and Luke.. with Jordan being her pick! What do you think?

The Real Housewives of Dallas - I do believe it's getting a bit better. Cary is my favorite!

Friends - Every day at lunch I watch an episode.

Mistresses starts Monday after the Bachelorette and I cannot wait!! I missed a lot of last season and wish it was somewhere to catch up on.

I haven't read a lot this month. A few years ago I had like a 5 hour layover in the DFW airport so I bought a few books, LA Candy by Lauren Conrad was one of them. I never read it and it just got stashed on my shelf. While waiting on my new book to come in I started reading it and just haven't had much time to finish it - I'm only on like chapter 3 but once I start a book I must finish it!

What I'm listening to...

Eli Young Band on Pandora. Love them!

What I'm wearing...

This top, skinny jeans, and my favorite cardigan!

What I'm doing this weekend...

Friday we head for the lake! Yay!

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

Well, we have Tate's birthday, Father's Day, a wedding and lots of pool time!

What else is new...

We are finally getting our fence up! We've been playing phone tag with the guy. He was supposed to be here Monday morning - no call no show! Tuesday he shows up at lunch.. with two other guys and beer. Last night we had no fence whatsoever - hello we have dogs! And today I'm crossing my fingers that he finishes! Hooray for a privacy fence!

What I'm looking forward to this summer...  

Vacation with my little family - that we really need to decide on! Lots and lots of pool time and bbqs! Hopefully Tate and I can getaway somewhere before football really starts!


  1. I'm tired just reading all you have been up to. I love that bedroom inspiration and wish I could find that rug.

  2. I am definitely getting more into RHOD, although Leanne is not my favorite, and neither is her friend Heidi. I am liking Luke for The Bachelorette, but there are just so many guys I feel like I don't even remember half of them to say!

  3. I can't wait for mistresses to come back - it's going to be so good! Have a great weekend at the Lake! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. eek I am also loving Jordan for Jojo! I just hope he turns out to be as great as he seems right now!
