What's up!

Today I've decided to join Mel, Shay and Sheaffer for their new monthly link-up, What's up Wednesday.  They used to host Pinspired, which I often joined and loved.  What's up Wednesday is less fashion-centric and more about me!  I hope you'll stick around to find out What's Up!

What I'M eating this week...Chicken!
This week because of the Memorial Day holiday I decided to skip my Hello Fresh delivery!  It actually worked out good though because I am staying late most nights this week and the last thing I'm going to want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen after that.  My chicken meals are quick and easy!  Salsa Chicken is my favorite!

What I'm reminiscing about... not too much these days...looking ahead!!  

What I'm loving... The collage I made from my Instagram photos from last summer!  I scored a great deal on it on Shutterfly...50%, so I thought I was a great time to finally do it.  Hopefully it won't take me almost a year to put together a frame from this summer!

What I've been up to... it was a fun Memorial Day Weekend.  Check out what I did {HERE}!

What I'm dreading...GRADES!!
Now that the end of the year is sooo close, report card grades are due in our system soon.  As the Librarian and Tech Teacher for students in grades Pre-K thru 8, I give everyone a grade. This is not what I'm dreading. What I dread is storing the grades and running the report cards for all students in my school.  As my school's tech person this is my job.  And there's almost ALWAYS some sort of an issue! Ugh!!

What I'm Working on...transitioning to a new school website.
Next year my school is getting a new hosting site for our website.  So for the past few days I have been working on the checklist we have to complete to make the transition smooth.  In order for me to do this, my principal was kind enough to get me sub.  But between you and me, I'd rather be teaching.  I don't like being in the building when I have a sub, because the kids still see me and wonder why I'm not with them.  Everything I've been doing is online, so I probably should have asked to do it from home!!  Home's where the wine is...HA!!!  Just kidding...

What I'm excited about... SUMMER VACATION!!

What I'm Watching...The NY Rangers in the Stanley Cup Playoffs!!  Game 7 here we come!!!  #LGR

What I'm reading...The Girl on the Train.  I had hoped to finish it this weekend, but wasn't able to.  This weekend, I WILL!!

What I'm Listening to...Break Up with Him - Old Dominion
 Just loving this song these days!!  Heard it a bunch of times this weekend!  Super catchy and I love the music.  And I love my country!!

What I'm Wearing...My new Camo Hat!!
I bought this camo baseball cap after seeing it on my bestie.  She is participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer this coming October...39 miles over 2 days!!!  This is her 4th time walking. She walks for her mom, who is a breast cancer survivor and in memory of her walk partner, who sadly lost her battle!  The baseball cap was so cute on her, I thought I needed one too!!  I figure if anyone compliments me on it, it's a good segway into talking about the walk and raising awareness for breast cancer!!  And it's great hat to help block the sun this summer!!
If you'd like to support my best friend in her walk  you can do so here.  THANKS!!

What I'm up to this weekend....Girls' Night with my Bestie!  Not sure what we are gonna do, but I'm certain it will involve food and drink! LOL

What I'm looking forward to next month...the start of the GYPO Summer Challenge!!  There's still time to sign up! It's so much fun and you'll meet a great group of women. See some of last summer's challenge looks here!

What else is new...
Nothing really!  I'm loving that it's only a four day week, but for me it's a long one!  Looking forward to maybe seeing my sister on Thursday and a fun weekend ahead! Fingers crossed the weather is nice!

The Question of the month is...What's your favorite thing to grill in the month of June?  Since I don't grill much myself, (or at all really!!) I'll tell you what my favorite thing to EAT for the grill is.  And that's a big juicy cheeseburger!!  I never have them, unless it's summer.  And a yummy cheeseburger, right of the grill totally hits the spot during the summer!!  Ya can't go wrong with a burger and a beer...

That was a lot of fun!!  What have you been up to lately?  Let me know in the comments below!!

Check back in with me on Friday, when the Style Me Bloggers and I link up to show you around our neck of the woods!  See you then!!



  1. YES to summer break, girl's night, and basically all of this but the grades part...yeah yucko. xo Amanda

  2. I hear ya....also dreading grades & report cards, but that means SUMMER IS NEAR!
    Thanks for linking up with us! :)

  3. Everyone and their mother is reading/has read/will read The Girl on the Train! It's next on my list just because I've seen it everywhere! That salsa chicken looks delicious!

  4. What do you think of The Girl on the Train? I have the sample downloaded on my Nook but didn't buy the book yet. Decided to read something else this month...I bet you and your bestie would love the book I am reading...Nobody's Cuter Than You. I read about it on Sheaffer's blog. I thought doing this What's up, Wednesday was super fun. Loved reading all about what's up with your life. Sorry about the grades/report cards job responsibility. That sounds like a huge task. Hope it goes without a glitch this year.


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
