What’s Up (January ’18)

Another year another What’s Up?!?!


This week we are eating

Bacon cheddar egg cups for breakfast
Cheesy spinach stuffed chicken breasts

Low-Carb Roasted Asian Shrimp and Brussels Sprouts Sheet Pan Meal http://ift.tt/2lW12xA

LC Asian shrimp & brussel sprouts
LC Chicken enchilada casserole
Cauliflower rice & meatballs
It’s time for me to get back on my proper eating.  January is not my month to get back into any routines (I’m a rebel) but I do stop eating crap (um for the most part!)


Ahhh PF Changs
About nothing.  Wait last January we went to PF Chang’s.  I love PF Chang’s.  Maybe we should go again.  Nevermind we went last month.  I’m thinking food…I have a problem.



My Pats are going BACK to the Superbowl!
Cammy B is loving basketball!
51 days until spring!
22 days until our anniversary trip!

We’ve been up to

Magic backsplash peel and stick wall tile
See this.  It’s awesome.  Later y’all I’ll tell ya later.
Bathroom & Kitchen updates that never seem to end because someone cannot seem to focus!
Vacations for the year
A ton of recipes and cooking!


Thoughts for Friday – 17th October 2014 | Trials of a wanna-be ...

More winter weather since we’re not out of winter yet.  After a combined 12 inches this season I’m totally over all things related to this season.
I also dread the end of football season.  It’s so sad when the Sundays bring NASCAR instead of football.  I know some of you (Beth) who may fight me on that.

Working on

Last year on the beach in Mexico.  Time to channel that and get my tail in gear and get this pale winter crap GONE!
My winter self LOL!  Back in the gym and ready to get a tan baby!


The husband booked an anniversary trip for us! (February)
Simple, country-inspired summer flowers featuring pink roses and a mason jar for your next bridal or baby shower. An easy enough arrangement to create on your own.
Instant happiness.
Fresh flowers each week was my only resolution I have been totally on point with that resolution.  Flowers excite me.  Every week I am not sure what I’ll fall in love with!
Walking bridge in Gatlinburg Tennessee.
We will be spending a lot more time next door in Tennessee this year.  I’m happy about it!
Long weekend getaways have been planned for the year!  This is super exciting.  I love being able to look at the calendar and see “vacation” written down.
I am also excited about Lent because during Lent I can see spring take shape!  The winter starts to get pushed (ever so gently) out as the buds reappear on the trees, the skies seem a little bluer, and green takes the place of brown.  Woo hoo!

Reading & Watching

Books – January

The Woman in the Window: A Novel

Currently I am reading: The Woman In The Window but it isn’t intriguing me yet and I’m only like 20 chapters in…

The Cookin Mama #RHOBH The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills #pumprules #Bravo Lisa Vanderpump  Connect with me! TheCookinmama.com Tumblr.com/thecookinmama Pinterest.com/thecookinmama @thecookinmama

Shows I am watching include:  This Is Us (and everyone threw out their crock pots but me?); RHOBH (why do I subject myself to this?  I’m addicted!); Superstore (too funny!  I worked at Walmart from 1999-2001 so this totally makes me laugh.) Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee (I finally like Jerry Seinfield.)

Listening To

Really?  Well Audible has been in my ears since I’m kind of listening to books more than reading.  However, I have been listening to Amazon’s Cardio Work Out Pop Mix in my ears while sweating.  I always cool down to something inspirational.  One Sunday our worship leader (ok this past Sunday) performed a song that was freaking awesome and it’s been my cool down.

Hey look it’s my grocery shopping outfit!
One day I will selfie myself in outfits.  Not today.

This Weekend

Cammy B’s basketball game.  We have to be there at 8…AM.  They spoiled us with the 11:45 start time all January.
The SUPERBOWL! I have opted against having anyone over (at this point) I can be difficult to watch the Super Bowl with.  Last year I was drinking bourbon at half time in my kitchen beside a chick who was doing homework.  Last Super Bowl had my heart in a vice grip.  I know this one will too.  Let’s WIN Pats!

Next Month Excitement

  1. You seriously kill me. Those jeans and the F that haters #dead. I have some very similar but they say back off B@#%&es. Kidding, kidding! That is such a fun meme thinking about some of the best memories are still to be made. I needed to read that. I’ll be cheering your Pats on, on Sunday!

  2. I really liked the woman in the window, it was a lot of background before the climax, keep with it! All of your meals and vacations sound amazing! I need to catch up on This is Us, I did not finish last season yet! I am sad football is over, but happy to have my Sundays back, no NASCAR in these parts, thank goodness! Have a great day my friend!

    1. I have a love hate with This Is Us. Now I have to stay up after the Superbowl (How drunk will I be?) and watch the dad die in a house fire saving a dog. Spoiler alert? No the show is too obvious. I dare to be challenged!) I met my spouse at a NASCAR event. Bye girl bye. Have a great day.


  3. You make my heart sing!!! I love how you are in such a happy zone, I never want it to end! I have been picking up flowers ever week too. They run $5-8 Depending What’s in. My last bunch has lasted 10 days! I love Cammy B’s love of the game! I feel a came of HORSE coming on with mom and Aunt Andrea! xo Thank you for always making my week brighter. Love you!
