What's Up Wednesday

*This post contains affiliate links.

And just like that, April is almost over. The time is seriously flying. Maybe that is because I was gone for over a week of it. 

What's Up Wednesday

WHAT WE ARE EATING THIS WEEK...

Sunday: I made a new take on my classic spaghetti with meat sauce using ground beef and pork and letting it simmer for hours. So good. I paired it with a garlicy kale salad.
Monday: Black Rock Tri-tip (from a local butcher shop) with asparagus and rice.
Tuesday: Using leftover tri-tip for a play off of Philly Cheesesteaks (I hope I remember to photograph it and post the recipe).
Wednesday: Korean Beef Bowls
Thursday: I am getting my hair done (finally), so I will grab take-out on the way home.
Friday: Not sure
Saturday: Going out. We have our football teams scrimmage game.

WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT...

Our trip to Mexico. We had the best time. I missed the girls terribly, but to have over a week away with just my husband was amazing. We slept in, we did some day drinking, we hiked, we ate all the amazing things and sunbathed. My tan is on point right now.

WHAT I'M LOVING...

I could dedicate a whole post to this, but for now, here are some of my favorites.

Sun Bum sunscreen

We used Sun Bum sunscreen for our trip. I hadn't ever used it before, but after using it for a week, we loved it. It applied easily, the coverage was amazing, it smelt great and it has good ingredients in it. We used this one on our face.

AE FAVORITE SCOOP NECK TANK TOP

I bought this tank in two colors prior to going to Mexico and I wore them probably more than I should have. They are soooo soft, versatile, a great length and so comfy. I need to order more of their tanks and soft tees.


I got my jewelry organizer while I was away and I put it up the day after I got home. I went through all my jewelry boxes and organized everything. I even wore some jewelry that I haven't touched in years. I so wanted something to organize my jewelry since it basically just sat in a box because I was too lazy to pull it out. I wore the same necklaces over and over again. But now it is up, organized and now I am wearing my jewelry again.

I will save more of my favorites for another post.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...

Well I just got back from Mexico, so that is pretty much been my life lately. I am writing posts to recap it, but it definitely makes me miss it.

WHAT I'M DREADING...

Not really anything right now. We have sunshine and Spring is officially here.

WHAT I'M WORKING ON...

Still purging in my house. We are getting ready to have a yard/garage sale at our house. I have been going through the girls clothes, toys, my clothes, and household goods. I need to go through my old purses and sale them. They just sit pretty in boxes in my closet. Ugh. Speaking of purses, I need a new summery one.

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT...

My sister's bachelorette party the first weekend of May, sunshine, beach trips and my sister's upcoming wedding.

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING...

So I had every intention on finishing The Wife Between Us, but then someone recommended One of Us is Lying and I quickly downloaded it and started reading it. I finished it in no time and then went back to The Wife Between Us. I liked One of Us is Lying. It was a quick read, it had me guessing (though I figured it out early on, but had other back up thoughts on who it was) and I really liked how short the chapters were. You get different perspectives quickly and it made for a great read.

As for TV, I have been watching the same things as last month....Santa Clarita Diet, Riverdale, Jane the Virgin (did you see the season finale?), Grey's Anatomy, Silicon Valley, Life Sentence, The Americans, La to Vegas (so funny). 

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...

The same old, way old. Though I finally got my co-worker to change his Sirus XM station to Lithium so we have some amazing old school rock music playing now.

WHAT I'M WEARING...

Well I am finally in sandals, shorts, dresses and tank tops all weekend and then short sleeve shirts for work. I have been getting compliments at work on my dresses (from my female co-workers), so I think I need to incorporate more of them.

WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND...

Saturday is the Spring scrimmage game for the Nevada Wolf Pack. Our friends are hosting a tailgate before the game (like they would for a normal game), so Rory and I are going to that. My parents are watching the girls. Sunday we hope to go look at cars. I will explain more later, but we are in the market.


WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH...

May brings my sister's bachelorette party, hopefully some trips to Lake Tahoe, construction of a new fence at our house, a birthday party and hopefully lots of sunshine!

WHAT ELSE IS NEW...

The girls are learning soooo much. They can spell their whole names, they know their birthday, they are learning their phone numbers and just changing soooo much. Three is a hard age, but it is so much fun!


BONUS: FAVORITE MOTHER'S DAY GIFTS...

I was going to share a few of the things that I want for Mother's Day, but I already created a post for that coming soon, so I skipped this question.

  11. We're watching Grey's too and I'm finally getting around to watching all the episodes of Parenthood I was never able to stay awake for when I had young ones. I love that jewelry organizer. I have so much from when I was a Lia Sophia demonstrator and yet I too find I wear the same pieces over and over; mostly because they are at my fingertips.

    1. Oh how do you like Parenthood? It is a favorite of mine for sure. I miss that show. I love my organizer, but now I am overwhelmed with choices on what to wear each day. Ha.

  14. I just got One of Us Is Lying from the library! Glad you had fun in Mexico!

  15. It sounds like you guys had a fabulous time on your trip! Car shopping is not my favorite thing haha. Good luck with that! I love your jewelry organizer. Last summer I went through all of the different areas in the house I have mine stashed and got rid of like 90% of it. I just didn't love most of it anymore so why was I hanging on??? I think if I had an organizer where I could see things better, I would wear more than the same three things too haha.

    1. I hate car shopping. I love looking at cars, but not dealing with the people. That part annoys me. I had a ton of jewelry and then my house was broken into in 2011. They stole it all. Very sentimental pieces too. So I slowly built my collection up again and then I just went through it all. I donated some, but kept a ton. That is why I needed that organizer. Ha.

  16. I really want to read One of Us Is Lying sometime soon. I'm glad you had a great time in Mexico. And I can't wait to see what's on your Mother's Day wish list.

  18. I live on an island in North Carolina and I am obsessed with sunbum! I don't use any other sunscreen! In the summer I put it on almost like lotion because I know i'll always end up doing something outside.
