Another What's Up Wednesday

I had fun doing this last few months so I am linking up with What's Up Wednesday again.

What we're eating this week:  My fiancee and I have had a fairly busy couple of weeks so when I was actually home Sunday afternoon I took advantage of it and made food for the whole week.  I made a zucchini meatball with marinara sauce to go over some pasta and I also made a bean and veggie mixture as a burrito filling.

What I'm reminiscing about: It has been hot this week so I am reminiscing about being in Hawaii.  At least in Hawaii when I got hot I could just hop in the pool or the ocean and who is going to complain about this view!

What I'm loving: I am loving that in less than a year I get to marry the love of my life.  We started our pre-marital prep classes yesterday and we are acing them if I do say so myself.

What we've been up to: I feel like we have be doing a million things this month.  Birthdays, going away parties, weddings, shopping we have done it all! We went to my cousin's wedding last week and all the festivities that go with that.  It made me even more excited for my own wedding!

What I'm dreading: As usual I am still dreading that we have more hot weather ahead of us before we get to fall (or winter) and cooler weather.  I keep hearing we are going to have a crazy wet winter but I will believe that when I see it!

What I'm working on: Last weekend my fiancee and I went wine tasting in Livermore with my family for my youngest sisters birthday.  While we were there my cousin took some photos of my fiancee and I among the grapes in hopes of using one of them (or one from the wedding last week) on our Save-the-Dates.  My goal is to get my Save-the-Dates ordered in the next week or so and then get them all mailed out in August.

What I'm excited about: It may sound silly but I have been so busy that I am actually just looking forward to staying home this weekend and getting things done around the house.  My family has lots of birthdays and such in July and my fiancee's family has lots of birthdays and such in August so this weekend is kind of the rest between the two.

What I'm watching/reading: Still working my way through all the seasons of Survivor on Hulu.  I have a few more seasons to go and I am open to suggestions as to what show I should watch next.  I am also still reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.  I didn't get as far into the book this month as I had hopped so I am still reserving judgement.

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 did plenty of damage at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale though in my defense I did manage to buy presents for my entire family and some of my fiancee's too as part of that damage.  Of course I stocked up on my Hanky Panky but I won't be showing you me modeling them!  I am a big fan of polka dots so I was imediately drawn to this pair of pajama pants.  It made it even better than they are less than $25.

If it ever cools down I am looking forward to wearing my new super cute workout jacket that I also picked up at the Anniversary Sale.  That back is just too cute.  No picture of me actually wearing it yet because it is just took darn hot still! 

What I'm doing this weekend: A whole lot of nothing!  Ok not nothing, but I have no plans to go anywhere besides general household errands.  I have grand plans to clean out my kitchen cabinets.  I know that sounds like a really exciting weekends but sometimes quiet productive weekends are necessary.

What Will You Miss Most About Summer: I will miss the fresh berries that are so plentiful during summer.  I don't love the heat (especially without air conditioning) but I do enjoy sitting on a balcony or patio of a restaurant and having a cocktail on a warm evening.


  1. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Such an exciting time. From one "Queen" to another, enjoy your peaceful weekend at home :-)

  2. Love those polka dot pajama pants!
