What’s Up Wednesday: October Edition

wuw

Okay y’all, I’m trying something new here.  My friend Heather, checkout her blog New York Roots to Southern Boots, suggested I try What’s Up Wednesday from Mix & match Mama‘s blog (yes, Shay Shull is Sean Lowe’s sister).  So, I will answer the questions below & link back to Mix & Match Mama.  Here goes nothing…questions

What I’m eating this week…
I’m currently eating fried okra & a roll from Luby’s (thank you Ruthy & Katy!) & Mama J’s Chicken & Rice Soup.  This was my first attempt to make this soup as her recipe calls for a little of this & a little of that.  I also have tried out my first few recipes from Blue Apron; they are delicious but so much food!  They need a plan for single gals like me.

What I’m reminiscing about…
Lately, I’ve had the travel bug.  The last vacation I took was 2 1/2 years ago to Sonoma Wine Country…what I wouldn’t give to be back there!sonoma

Don’t I look right at home among the barrels of vino?!?

What I’m loving…
I am loving the song Big Girls Cry by Sia right now.  I’ve been listening to is on repeat trying to learn the lyrics.

What I’ve been up to…
This may be a bit too “Real Housewives” for you, but I’ve been trying to get a diagnosis for some weird symptoms, that when combined may or may not be symptoms of anything.  It’s been a real struggle to get my doctor & a few specialists to take me seriously.  I’m not one to manifest pain, symptoms, or discomfort – it took me six months to convince myself to go to the doctor.  Right now, the doctors are making me feel like I’m crazy, but I know that sleeping 15+ hours a day is not normal among other things.  At this point I’m ready for a full body scan…  Just as a side note, if you know something isn’t right with you, keep going to different doctors until you get an answer.

What I’m dreading…
I’m dreading the dentist.  Y’all, I have a deep seeded hatred for the dentist…all dentists.  It’s nothing against them as individuals.  They always find something wrong.  They ALWAYS ask opened ended questions while their hands are in my mouth.  Um, I can’t talk dude, your hand is blocking my airway.  As someone who has had numerous cavities, braces 4 times, & jaw surgery – I think it’s safe to say that I’m not looking forward to my upcoming teeth cleaning.

What I’m working on…
I am currently working on revamping the blog.  Is there anything in particular you want to see more of?

What I’m excited about…
Kathryn Dennis is coming back to #SouthernCharm for Season 4!  She’s Back!!!!  I, for one, am super excited about seeing Kathryn & her June Carter pouf back on my TV.  I adore Kathryn & think Thomas is a liar, liar, on fire.  Blandon ought to be scared… kd

What I’m watching/reading…
I’m watching This Is Us…so good!  It totally replaces Parenthood for me. this-is-us

As for what I’m reading right now…you caught me at a bad time.  I am an avid reader, & will read just about anything.  I’m currently reading a cheesy romance novel that I don’t even know the name of…don’t judge me too harshly. 🙂

What I’m listening to…
Last week, on the Popcast with Know & Jamie, Jamie greenlit the band Johnnyswim.  I’d never head of them, but she compared them to The Civil Wars (RIP).  I immediately looked them up on Spotify & have been listening ever since.  johnnyswim

What I’m wearing…
My office is a frozen tundra, so I’m wearing a cute shift dress with black tights & brown riding boots (yes, I think brown & black can be worn together).  I’m also covered head to toe (huddled really) in the most amazing $7 purchase I’ve ever made…my infamous sweater blanket as it’s called around the office.  Some of my colleagues have lovingly mockingly referred to as the Aztec Snuggie or my papoose, joke’s on them thought because I’m warm & they’re not.img_3832

What I’m doing this weekend…
I will be attending a wedding in Louisiana to help out my friends Ashley & Chisum; I’ll be watching their four daughters under the age of 8 (yes, you read that correctly).  Ashley’s niece is marrying into the Duck Dynasty family…how cool is that?

What I’m looking forward to next month…
I’m looking forward to so many things…

  • Nutcracker Market!!!
  • cold weather (God willing)
  • Greenbean casserole
  • Mama J’s birthday

What else is new…
Notta lotta…

This was so fun!  What a great way to slow down for a bit & take stock of all the cool things going on in life.

Until the last Wednesday on November…

Kiss Hug,
