What’s Up Wednesday

Linking up for What’s Up Wednesday.

What we are eating…

This week we are having salads two nights, taco soup two nights and pork chops. For lunches I have soup and an apple for three days. I had a market salad from Chick Fila yesterday and I have lunch plans to eat out on Friday with some girl friends.

What I’m reminiscing about…

Baby Zoe!!! I know she is still technically a “baby,” but she is going to be one soon. And she is growing so fast and learning all these new skills and and and. I mean just look….

What I’m loving…

All the snuggles and smiles Zoe has been giving out! She is seriously the sweetest kid ever.

What we’ve been up to…

Just trying to stay above water. A certain tiny human has decided she doesn’t need to nap anymore, and it has been really hard to get anything done! I seriously need some of her energy. She is all play and explore these days. Other than that, just been working and doing the daily grind of life.

What I’m dreading….

Anything work related. LOL

What I’m working on….

I have been trying to get back on the exercise wagon this week. My goal is to be back at pre-pregnancy weight by Zoe’s first birthday. So far I am three for three this week and hope to continue. It feels good to get all those endorphins flowing first thing in the mornings!

What I’m excited about…

Fall weather!!! Supposedly we are supposed to be having some more fall like temps here soon. I will believe it when I see it.

I am also super excited about lunch on Friday! We haven’t had a girls night in a really long time. Since I have to get Zoe from daycare after work, doing happy hour isn’t really a thing for me anymore…so I am glad we are able to break up our work day and have a girls lunch!

What I’m watching/reading…

I am finishing up reading The Expats. It is so good!

The Expats

And we are watching all the shows thatΒ  have started back and trying out some new ones!!! We watched Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon on Monday night. BBT is one of my absolute favorites!!! And I really liked Young Sheldon.

We watched The Good Doctor last night. SOOOOO GOOOD!!!!!! Chris and I both predict it will probably be our favorite of all the new shows that come out. Go ahead and jump on The Good Doctor Train!!!

We watched Kevin Can Wait last night. They killed of the main female role from the first season to have the old duo from King of Queens this season. It was a little cheesy and I am not sure how long we will continue to watch it? We didn’t watch the last several episodes from the first season because we got bored with it, but wanted to see the new chemistry between these two.

And we are still catching up with Better Call Saul….

What I’m listening to….

Yes my Accent is Real by Kunal Nayyar on audiobook. And my usual 90’s and early 2000’s music.

Yes, My Accent Is Real: and Some Other Things I Haven't Told You

What I’m wearing….

Trying to find the happy balance between YAY ITS FALL WHERE ALL THE FALL THINGS!!! And BUTTTTTTT ITS STILL HOT AS BALLS OUTSIDE SO CALM YOUR TITS. My Nordstrom Rack order with my clearance tanks should be coming in today!!! I did pick up a longer cardigan( in the color port wine) to wear with my summer dresses. It’s a great price point and it is butter soft!

What I’m doing this weekend….

My dad’s birthday was last weekend and a few months ago, my sister found a car show going on that she thought he would enjoy. It is this Saturday, so we are going to take him out to dinner first and then head over to the car show.

Also, Alabama plays Ole Miss at 8pm. I plan on being home in plenty of time for that!!! I hate games that are this late, hopefully I can stay up for the whole thing!

What I’m looking forward to next month…

Watching Hocus Pocus and hopefully starting some fall traditions with Zoe!!

What have you been up to?

    It’s been so hot and humid up here and I’m like where the heck is my fall weather! It’s the end of September, I shouldn’t be sweating to death! How am I suppose to go apple picking?? You don’t go apple picking in shorts and t-shirts. ahaha Ok maybe that is just me. The cool weather is suppose to arrive this weekend and I cannot wait! Zoe is going to be one! Wow does time fly.

    This year has been going by way too fast, what happened to our itty bitty babies?! So sorry she’s been resisting her naps. Serena is all about playing and exploring too, but still crashes for her morning nap. The afternoon nap may be going by the way side soon as it’s harder to get her to go down for those.

    I’m so sick of the fall weather too! It just feels so gross, but hopefully the cool front they’re predicting actually blows through before this weekend! Way to go on sticking with the work out train! I feel like trying to start the habit up again is always the hardest part!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm September 27, 2017 at 3:35 pm

    Oooh, the Good Doctor is on my DVR so I’m glad to hear how good it was! I loved that actor in Bates Motel. Young Sheldon is also on my DVR!

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag September 27, 2017 at 3:52 pm

    I loved The Good Doctor – it was so good, and I love Freddie Highmore. I don’t keep up with shows well but I need to keep up with that one!!

    I’m so ready to watch Hocus Pocus!

    I might start doing Whats Up Wednesday as well. πŸ™‚

    It truly hasn’t felt like September. It’s been hot here as well. Argh!

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer September 27, 2017 at 5:51 pm

    You have been doing so great this week! My workouts have been good, but food, not so much. I did okay yesterday but had whoopie pies for lunch today. WTF. Love that long cardigan! We are in for cooler weather this week so I’m hoping to start wearing all of my fall stuff. It was 90 again today, so, sleeveless shirt and sandals it was.

  • Reply Danielle September 27, 2017 at 6:42 pm

    I need to look into the Good Doctor. I heard others like it as well. Welcome to the little sleep club. It has been a rough week. Phew.

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine September 27, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    So when my hubs got home, I told him about The Good Doctor since you said it was good and man, it got great reviews, we’re on it! Plus when you say something is good, I know it is! πŸ˜‰ How crazy is it Zoe will be 1!!!! Oh so precious, I promise the fighting naps things is a phase for now! Yay to girls lunch on Friday and Hocus Pocus!

  • Reply Sierra September 27, 2017 at 10:53 pm

    That salad looks so good! Girls lunches are so needed and such a nice way to keep off the weekend. It’s so crazy how fast kids grow in a year and what they learn. I love long cardigans for the fall and the color of the one you got is so nice!! Beautifully Candid

  • Reply Brandy September 27, 2017 at 11:22 pm

    I posted mine. Decided to do this on the last Wednesday of each month. πŸ™‚

  • Reply Heather Carrier September 28, 2017 at 7:35 am

    The Good Doctor looks good, glad it got so many !!!! from you guys. Definitely going to see if I can watch on Hulu. Chicago shows are back this week, so I’m excited about that. Zoe IS getting so big and just so adorable and OMG Hocus Pocus!! I cannot WAIT to watch that!

  • Reply Laura September 28, 2017 at 8:55 am

    Fall TV!! YES!! I’m so glad it’s back – and I’m so glad it’s almost time for Hocus Pocus. I’m so glad that it’s become like a cult favorite now, because it’s everywhere!! Zoe girl is getting to be such a big girl!! But like, nap please. Excited for lunch tomorrow – because gorgonzola dip. πŸ™‚

  • Reply SMD September 28, 2017 at 9:53 am

    This totally threw me off…I was like uh is today Wednesday? LOLOL

    We are having very non-fall weather up here as well.

  • Reply Kay September 28, 2017 at 11:12 am

    That salad looks delicious!!

  • Reply Brittany Pines September 28, 2017 at 12:17 pm

    Totally understand the reminincing point! There is a huge kids consignment sale I go to with friends every year for baby clothes, and since my child is 75-90% I was buying up to 3T! When showing hubs he got really quiet and “That’s a kid. She’s going to be a big kid soon…”

    Ditto on fall…near record of highs of like 88 around here today πŸ™

  • Reply Dani September 28, 2017 at 1:15 pm

    That port wine color is my favorite to wear, especially in fall. Except yeah, I’m still in tank tops and capris here too! So NOT fall-like! And why is that cardigan sold out in every color- grrrrr. I loved The Expats! And BBT and Young Sheldon- I’m not caught up yet, but hoping to get back on schedule over the weekend. Calm your tits- hahahaha I love that expression! Have a great time at the car show!

  • Reply Audrey September 28, 2017 at 2:48 pm

    The meme about driving across the country is hilarious and so so true. Lol
    I can’t believe Zoe is going to be one soon!! I feel like you were JUST announcing your pregnancy! Geez!
    I’m hoping fall weather hits here and stays. We’ve been doing 80* and 90* days in Ohio. That’s just not right…

  • Reply Emelia September 29, 2017 at 7:26 am

    That salad looks so good right now. It’s 7 am- what is wrong with me?! Haha. Zoe is just so sweet- I would soak up her cuddles too. A nurse just told me about Good Doctor and it sounds so good! Buuuut I can’t add another TV show to my list and keep up hahaha
    Enjoy your lunch out today!

  • Reply Ali A September 30, 2017 at 3:53 pm

    I’m really excited for fall weather and fall CLOTHES, too. It’s so unlike me to wish summer weather away, but I was OVER the humidity and sweating and wearing tank dresses to work everyday. Bring on the sweaters and boots!
