What You No Good

When one of your blogging besties starts a new link up….you link up!!!

What's New With You
One thing that you have to learn when you move to another area of the country, is the terminology and lingo. Here in the deep south, instead of people asking “What’s new with you” they ask “What you no good?”
Currently I am…
Reading: Taste: A Love Story – I am about 30% done with this book and I would really like to finish it for the link up next Tuesday.
Listening: Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty – It’s my last read from her. I am going to need her to write something else!!! Also, I started listening to Stiff but I am waiting until I finish Last Anniversary to really dive in. It is too interesting and I need to be able to have more focus!
Last Anniversary
Itching: For a new blog design! I started looking at new designs to redo Besties do Bham because the one we chose isn’t formatting too great. Well upon finding ones I like for it….I found ones I like for here too. It has been about a year….year and a half…I think it is time for a change.
Working On: Getting caught up on blogging. I have been quite busy this week, so if I haven’t stopped by and commented…I will soon!
A few of you asked what my favorite recipes were on Whole 30 and what I snacked on, so I am thinking about doing one post and just sharing a bunch of recipe links and snacks. Would you all like that?
Been doing research on various things. How to take some ideas I have and bring them to fruition. Different diets and how they help your body. Plants. Natural medicines. I have a curious mind, what can I say?
Snacking: Speaking of snacks, I cant stop with the Target Archer Farms Sea Salt Pistachios. Amazing!
Archer Farms Sea Salt Pistachios
Organizing: Our pantry is a disaster. I want some type of back of the door baskets for all those pesky food wrap/storage bag boxes that fall on me all the time!
Planning: Spring will be here before you know it!!! I really want to start a garden this year so it is time to start planning what we want and when it is going to need to get planted. Time to call in my sister!
Excited:For my lunch today with Laura!!! I haven’t seen her since two days before Christmas. Whole 30 had us eating lunch at the office a lot more and not wanting to try new places since all we could eat was lettuce and water.
What are you up to?
Linking up with Kristen and Gretchen.

    Please share some Whole30 recipes! I’m not sure I will fully commit to the whole program, but I definitely want to incorporate parts of it! And I’m in a recipe rut! Love the basket idea for the pantry… I have the same issue and it drives me nuts!

    Ha… I have never heard anyone say that in GA. Must be a Bama thing! Lettuce and water… that’s funny:) You make it sound like Whole30 prison lol.

    I’m always down for links to good and easy recipes.

  • Reply Kelli February 4, 2016 at 9:29 am

    I cannot wait to hear what you think of Stiff, I loved that book but it’s a little weird.

    I’m ready to garden plan too, bring on spring!

    I love those baskets! They seem like such a great way to stay organized, and I’ll all about that. Thanks for linking up!!

    I just downloaded The Last Anniversary myself & cant wait to get to it.
    I did the other book in audio & I dont think I finished it.

    I would love to link up with Kristen, but seeing as how WordPress is stupid and sucking, I gave up. I love that basket idea — such a nice and easy way to keep all those things in check. No more lettuce and water!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (times a million more !)

    girl. i am not kidding, i had to read your title like 7 times and was like wtf. hahahahahaha.

    and aw thanks for calling me a blogging bestie. <3 you. thanks for linking up with us!

    yes to the recipes post! and i want basket thingys. we have a huge pantry, but it's a mess. i really need liane moriarty to write a new book as well! i mean, i haven't read all her books yet but i want a new one anyway!

  • Reply Tracy February 4, 2016 at 10:37 am

    Yes recipes! Not because I want to do Whole30, but because new recipes that taste good and are good for you are always a win!

  • Reply Mattie February 4, 2016 at 11:35 am

    I loved The Last Anniversary! Stiff has been on my to-read list for probably a couple years thanks to some Buzzfeed list hahaha. I forgot about it until now!

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots February 4, 2016 at 12:29 pm

    The Last Anniversary is so good!! And so are pistachios, yum!!

  • Reply Heather H February 4, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    I haven’t read The Last Anniversary yet…I just have that one and The Hypnotist’s love story left by her, I think! Have you read any JoJo Moyes books? I find her to be a bit similar to Liane Moriarty and have heard others say the same if you’re looking for a recommendation! WAY TO GO finishing the Whole 30, girl!!!

    Check out Creative Market they have so many great templates and are super affordable!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders February 4, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    I wish that Liane Moriarty would write another book too! The Last Anniversary is the only book of hers that I have left, and it makes me so sad! Things have been insane this week for me too, which always means that blogging suffers! Hopefully things will calm down soon for both of us! And it sounds like you have some great posts in the works about Whole30! That’s so exciting when you already have a ton of ideas!

    Ive had my design for a year and while I like it I keep itching for a change too. Ugh. I think ill keep it just a bit longer till I absolutely cannot take it anymore. Are you wordpress?

  • Reply Tracie February 4, 2016 at 4:08 pm

    You have so much awesome going on! I’m so proud of how you finished the Whole 30! That is such a huge accomplishment to a foodie 🙂 If you find a new blog design, share where you got it from I love window shopping designs.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis February 4, 2016 at 4:35 pm

    Hope you had fun at lunch today with Laura. I would love to read some of your Whole30 recipes.

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista February 4, 2016 at 4:39 pm

    I’m lagging behind in blogland this week too, and yay for looking for a new blog design. If you want the contact info for my girl let me know 😉

  • Reply Amanda February 4, 2016 at 6:37 pm

    New blog designs are always fun. I feel like they give me an extra pep in my step! I know what you mean about needing to catch up with blogging. I’ve been terrible lately… in terms of reading AND writing!

  • Reply kathy at more coffee, less talky February 4, 2016 at 9:13 pm

    pantry organization for the win!! i kept on getting attacked by tupperwear that always fell out of my cupboards until i organized them using a $1 dish rack!

  • Reply Erin @ TexErin-in-SydneyLand February 4, 2016 at 11:24 pm

    I lived in Texas 35 years, and I’ve never heard “what you no good”…is this something new? Is this a regional thing? I’m so confused! Stiff is NOT my usual read, but I enjoyed it. It was fascinating!!

  • Reply Dani February 5, 2016 at 1:26 pm

    I’m curious to see your thoughts on Stiff. A friend loaned (lent?) it to me, but I didn’t realize it was non-fiction at first, and the timing just wasn’t right. I’m also itching for a new design because I’ve had mine for years, but I can’t decide on one!
