What’s Up Wednesday

It’s a What’s Up Wednesday around the land of blogs. I thought it would be fun to join in and thankfully I actually remembered to participate in this link up.




What I’m eating ~ Well, I have this really great husband who has been cooking me a couple of over easy eggs in the morning. They are simply the best and what I want to fuel my body after a workout. I’m also eating eggs when I’m dining out. Here’s proof!


What I’m reminiscing about ~ is my sweet little hometown in Iowa and my family. This was a sweet moment when my dad’s sister walked into the restaurant where we were eating breakfast.

What I’m loving ~ The idea of baking is getting me pumped up and headed to Pinterest for recipes. I don’t bake often in the summer because the oven just heats up the house but given Fall should arrive any day, I’m getting prepared for some bread and muffins.

What I’ve been up to ~ I’ve been up to planning on Christmas gifts. I have some fun ideas for my family and I’m sooooo excited about this idea.

What I’m dreading ~ Oh, goodness! There is definitely something I am dreading but I hesitate to put it here because…well, just because.

What I’m working on ~ I’m going to try my best to participate in a photo challenge during October. 14 Days of Fall ~ A Mini Fall Photo Challenge…you should join in too.


What I’m excited about ~ I’m excited for my daughter. Tomorrow she turns 30! What the what? How in the world did that happen?

What I’m watching/reading ~ Oh my goodness! This is Us is back and so is The Voice. I’m all in here, folks!

What I’m listening to ~ I typically listen to Texas Country but the other day I switched over to my iPod and this song popped up.

What I’m wearing ~ I’m trying to ease into my fall wardrobe but like so many across the States the weather temps are just not cooperating. But, I have started to wear some pants which is new because I live in skirts and dresses in the summer. I’m also wearing the looks in this post.

What I’m doing this weekend ~ I’m hoping we’re going to spend a little time at the Dallas Farmer’s Market and see what else we can to get into in Big D.

What I’m looking forward to next week ~ I’m so looking forward to a new style challenge with a few fellow bloggers. The Common Threads Challenge is going to be a challenge because I have to choose five items from my wardrobe and mix them with the rest of my pieces to create looks for the entire month. You can read the details and join in here.



What else is new ~ I’m waiting for Fall to arrive. And waiting…and waiting!

Have a beautiful day, friends!
