What's Up Wednesday

I am trying something new this week and linking up with What's Up Wednesday

What we're eating this week:  We made a big bowl of guacamole over the weekend to take to a BBQ and we have all the ingredients to make another batch as soon as our avocados ripen up.

What I'm reminiscing about: My trip to Hawaii is fresh in my mind.  I miss waking up and hearing the ocean outside my window but it gives me something to look forward to for next year.

What I'm loving: I don't want to jinx it but I am loving that we are having a fairly mild late spring.  We are keeping our daily highs in the mid 70's which is perfect for me since we don't have air conditioning

What we've been up to:  My cousin works at a winery in Livermore and one of my sisters was helping out at the winery for the weekend so my parents, other sister and I went up to wine taste.  If you are local Livermore has some great little (and not so little) wineries including Big White House.  Check it out.  Way closer than Napa!

What I'm dreading: I am dreading the 90 degree days that I know are coming sooner rather than later.

What I'm working on: A whole lot of trying to get a date nailed down for our wedding and just talking about all the other wedding details.

What I'm excited about:  Easy question!  I am going wedding dress shopping on Sunday and I am so excited!  My mom, sisters, one of my bridesmaids and possibly my future sister in law and mother in law are coming with me to help.

What I'm watching/reading: Not the most intellectual or oscar winning show but Hulu has most of the seasons of Survivor and I have been working my way though them.  I had seen a few seasons and bits and pieces of other seasons but it is kind of interesting to watch it change from the older seasons to the more current seasons.

What I'm listening to: Mostly whatever comes on my Pandora which is usually a mix of country and a random mix of 90s-00s pop music.  Everyone needs some Britney in their life every once in a while.

What I'm wearing: I wore this floral dress to a friend's birthday party over the weekend and got lots of complements on it.  I runs SUPER large so I ended up buying it in X-Small which if you know me and my butt you know this doesn't happen often.

What I'm doing this weekend: Friday night my sisters and I are going to see Toby Keith in concert. I am looking forward to spending the evening with my sisters.  Girl night! My youngest sister and I have "Country Mega Tickets" for the whole series of concerts over the course of the next few months so expect much more about these concerts throughout the summer.

What I'm looking forward to next month: Attending a concert or two with my sister and celebrating my Grandpa's 90th birthday!

What is your favorite thing to grill in June:  Well, our condo complex doesn't allow grills on our patio so this is all hypothetical but if I did have grill I would grill shrimp skewers and veggies!


  1. I love that dress! Where is it from?

  2. Ahh, wedding dress shopping! How excited. I'm getting married in October and I got my wedding dress in August...I was so eager I got it suuuuuper early haha!

    1. My wedding is not until next June or July and I am going shopping this weekend so I understand! Ok part of the reason is excitement and part of it is that one of my sisters leaves for med school in July and I couldn't imagine going without her.

  3. I love wine tasting in Livermore! We are in the Bay Area also!
    Thanks for linking up with us! :)

    1. Thanks! I am going back this weekend for a wine release party and I am so excited! Can't go wrong with cheese and wine!
