What’s Up Wednesday

How is everyone doing on week two of coronacrazy? I have settled into a good daily routine that keeps me mostly sane. Working from home is significantly harder when you have a little one running around and out of sorts because she misses her teachers and friends. I figured I would hop on the What’s Up Wednesday train this month!

What's Up Wednesday

Eating: Chicken. Lots and lots of chicken. It is all our grocery store had when we placed our Shipt order. I am thankful to have any meat at all, so I am not complaining. Its just….chicken gets old after several days of it. No matter how different you “fix” it.

What I haven’t tired of? My spinach, goat cheese and apple salads I eat for lunch every day. Delicious!!! I usually pair it with a couple olives, handful of nuts and a few cream cheese stuffed salami roll ups.

Reminiscing: Places. Any place. I think when this is over, we can all agree that we take every day life for granted way more than we should. It is a privilege to walk around TJ Maxx, Target, the drugstore. To be able to walk into a restaurant and meet up with a group of friends and share laughs over chips and salsa. To wander around the zoo and watch your child light up in amazement. To simply have a play date with a friend on a slow weekend.

Loving: Being in my home office every day has inspired me to get this place in order and decorated. Really it is just a desk and a landing place for random items currently. Including Zoe’s bounce house, which is crucial in times like these…but hopefully not a permanent fixture in here.

I really want to paint the back wall navy, and use coral and gold as accents throughout the space. I am having a hard time deciding what to paint the other three walls though. Suggestions? I am not 100% sold yet.

We wanted to add some colour and texture in this room so how better than that gorgeous board and batten grid wall in Benjamin Moore Hale Navy? . And look at that amazing horse painting by Denika at @dc_woodworks - and she built that gorgeous custom desk for us too! QEII Home Lottery - 570 McCabe Lake Drive in Indigo Shores .

Coral and navy pillows

Been Up To: Pretty much what everyone is up to these days. Traveling around our house, bouncing between the living room, kitchen, Zoe’s room, our yard on nice days. Zoe and I have really taken advantage of the nice weather and have been walking/running around our neighborhood at least daily, sometimes more. I have hit my move and exercise goals every single day.

Dreading: The long term effects that the coronavirus is going to put on our economy, our lives, the small businesses. I have so much anxiety surrounding all of this.

Working On: I have a few things in the works that I have been wanting to do for a long time. Even with more time at home right now, it is hard to find the time and balance to really dedicate to everything. I think once I get the ball rolling though, it will all fall into place.

Excited: I am looking forward to Easter. Now that Zoe is a little older, we can have a fun egg hunt with her. I ordered some stuff from Target that should be coming in today to fill her eggs with. Luckily, I had started getting some dresses and stuff for her last month since we cant go out now to shop! I always get her a few swimsuits each year as well, since she has swim days at school, and we have a pool and water table for her at home.

Watching: While I figured we could get caught up on lots of TV during this time at home, that hasn’t been the case! We are caught up on The Good Doctor, The Resident and Bluebloods right now. We haven’t even watched a single Grey’s since December. We need a good binge day!!!

Reading: What You Wish For by Katherine Center (ARC from Netgalley, will come out in July)

What You Wish For

Playing: Lots of Just Dance with Zoe! We play pretty much every day for at least 20-30 minutes. One of Zoe’s favorite songs to dance to on there is Old Towne Road. Last night when we were dancing she belted out “Can’t nobody tell me nothinnnnnnn” and I was like oh god, this is why she loves this song. That is her life motto!!!!

Wearing: I mean, let’s get real people. Is anyone wearing real pants??? Not over here! I change every day, but ummm its always athletic wear. I do wear a real bra, so there is that!

This Weekend: This weekend is more of the same I suppose. I ordered a gas can for our lawn mower, we didn’t bring the one from our old house. Hopefully I will be cutting grass Saturday. Excited for the workout!!! And getting our lawn looking super fly.

What are you up to?

    It does feel like a privilege when you think about all the stores and places we typically get to visit. In 2020, amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this has definitely been a reminder to slow down and be thankful for your health and the health of your loved ones. On another note, being glued at home has helped us knock out a couple of items on our house to do list as well! I took a Mr. Clean eraser to all the doors the other day because our dog likes to use his dirty nose to open them lol. We love Just Dance too! We had a just dance party the other night. Some of the songs really get your heart rate up. I had one of the songs stuck in my head and kept walking around the house trying to nail the sequence haha. The color swatches for your office are beautiful. I love the idea of one painted wall. It helps keep the space light and airy. In our old place, I painted our entire bedroom teal….although I loved the color, the space felt so small after.

    I’m excited for Easter this year too, and hoping that we’ll be in a much better place in our country… in the world by then. Loving that color palette inspiration – SO pretty! Sending lots of hugs sweet friend <3

    So jealous you’re getting to read her new book right now! I’m obsessed with the navy walls. I’d love to do that in our bedroom or living room while we’re home, but we’re close to the brink already and I’m afraid we’ll kill each other.

  • Reply Biana March 25, 2020 at 3:13 pm

    I actually thought I would be getting a lot more reading done, but honestly by the time i get sophia down, it’s when i get caught up with work stuff and i just want to watch TV!! Day 14 for us tomorrow!! We will get through it! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

    Reminiscing places LOL. Yeah, I get that. To be perfectly honest, I went through this when I had a baby and all of a sudden became a SAHM…so whatever y’all are feeling this week, I already went through that. This is just my life, minus a Target trip for fun each week.

    And pants: nope. I just ordered a new casual dress though. Gap is having some crazy sales because no one has any disposable income.

    Ahhh, the Spring Color Palette is sensational. Reading starts this weekend for me, tackling things I want to do each week. I hope Easter brings healing and renewal. XO

    I need to pull out my dance video games- those things used to WEAR ME OUT – all the calorie burn.
    I’m so excited about another Katherine Center book!!!

    I do miss the little things, and with my anxiety/depression, not really having plans or knowing when I can do things doesn’t help but I’m trying to focus on the things I can do from home. There are definitely a lot of books to be read and shows to be watched, but it can be tough to focus. I’m just ready for nicer days so I can at least be outside!

    It’s the perfect time to pick out paint colors and dream up some house updates!

  • Reply laura March 26, 2020 at 12:45 pm

    Power to ya for wearing a real bra every day – cuzzz that hasn’t been the case over here! I will never take a random TJ Maxx trip for granted ever ever again. I had all these grand plans to get stuff done, but all I’ve really done is work. So thankful for good weather, so we can at least get a change of scenery.

  • Reply Danielle March 27, 2020 at 10:59 am

    I should have put that in reminiscing about places too. I want to go out but I know that we won’t. Don’t want to risk it. It’s hard though. We didn’t have chicken at our stores for a long time but they finally got it back in.

  • Reply Audrey March 28, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    I love that you & Zoe play Just Dance. Animal Crossing just released their game for the switch so I’ve been playing that. Hahahaha! And yay for being in this new house with a lovely yard and neighborhood for walking!
    I think Salty Dog was a final contender for M’s nursery. It might even be the color we went with- I can’t remember.

  • Reply Megan March 30, 2020 at 5:23 pm

    Old Town Road is a secret joy for me. I do not know why and it is embarrassing to admit. But maybe it’s the same reason as Zoe, “can’t nobody tell me nothin.”

    definitely get the home office up to what you want it to be; it’s the first thing i did when i decided to work from home full time..it’s so worth it and makes working so much better.

    glad you guys are keeping safe, healthy and sane!
