What’s Up Wednesday

Hello! It’s already the end of January, so I’m linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for their What’s Up Wednesday post!


Per usual, I only cook Sunday-Thursdays. Here’s what we are eating this week:

  • Sunday: Shay’s Buffalo Ranch Chicken Tortilla Soup
  • Monday: Million dollar spaghetti and roasted broccoli
  • Tuesday: Air Fryer Chicken Parmesan, Trader Joe’s risotto, and fruit
  • Wednesday: Monday/Tuesday leftovers and bagged Caesar salad
  • Thursday: Shay’s Beefy Cornbread Casserole, rice/broccoli side
  • Friday and Saturday: take out!


I’m reminiscing about my itty bitty valentines…

Here they are in February 2015.


I’m loving Hadley’s new Valentine’s Day sweatshirt that I ordered from MelandMae on Etsy. It’s so cute, and she loves wearing it.

I’m loving my new Kendra Scott bracelets. I love jewelry that can be worn with any outfit whether it’s workout clothes or dressed for school. Travis and the kids gave me the silver bracelet from Christmas, and then last week I used my birthday 50% off discount for the gold set of three bracelets. I’d never done that before, so I was excited to find something to go with the silver bracelet.


I’m working on tomorrow’s Monthly Musings blog post (with Holly and Patty!). It’s the first MM of 2021!


School for the kids, work/school for me (emails, emails emails, meetings…and Zoom appointments with students)…

Hayden is on two basketball teams, and Hadley attends dance two nights a week.

I finished 21Day Fix Extreme, and have started a new workout program: Muscle Burns Fat.

Also, is anyone else out there buying lottery tickets?! We rarely do, but when the jackpot gets close to $1 billion, I get greedy and tell Travis to pick up a few tickets!


besides not winning the lottery?! ๐Ÿ˜‚…Honestly, not much. It’s nice that the hustle and bustle of Christmas is over (not that we hustled or bustled as much as usual this year), and we can settle into the new year. I do have days where my Covid anxiety heightens, but I try to keep in mind that hopefully we are moving towards more of a sense of normalcy.


Our KC Chiefs are headed to the Super Bowl!! We are so excited. I’m not a perfect parent, but one of my greatest accomplishments is instilling a love for my KC Royals and KC Chiefs in my kids…well, at least Hayden! That being said, Hadley will dress for any occasion!


I shared the books I read in January yesterday, so check that post out!

I’ve been watching the new Real Housewives franchise: Salt Lake City! Apparently, it doesn’t matter where you live…there’s always drama ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also started season 4 of The Crown, and I’m loving it! Now that Diana is in the picture, the story line is really moving!


…the rain as I type this post.

Also, I haven’t really been listening to podcasts lately, but Instagram stories will suck me in every time! I set a timer on my phone as to not waste too much time on social media.


I went to Target for dry shampoo and a few things for Hadley, and I somehow left with this top and matching joggers for myself! Things just hop into my cart when I’m at Target!

I love both pieces, but I find that I tend to wear them separately more than together. I’m not a super matchy match person, I guess. Both are so soft and cozy and are perfect for wearing at home or running errands!

I’ve been wearing these three sweaters from Amazon on repeat since November.

I have this one in blue.

I have this cozy sweater in “wine red.” It’s so soft, and I love that I can wear it with leggings or jeans.

I wore it to school the other day with my favorite leopard flats.

And, I’ve shared this one before that I have in pink and navy blue. I probably wear this sweater the most of the other three. Of course, I have it in two colors, but I truly do love it. I purchased it in size medium after realizing size large was too big.


I think I will put up my Valentineโ€™s Day decor. I don’t do much anyway; I just add a few touches here and there.

Here’s a pic of last year’s Valentine’s Day dinner!

Also, Hayden has two basketball games on Saturday, but then we should have a pretty relaxing Sunday.


I guess I’m looking forward to Valetine’s Day next month. I’ve already bought the kids a couple of things that I know they’ll like, and maybe Travis and I will be able to go out to dinner.

I also keep hoping for a good snowfall. Maybe February will bring that weather to Kentucky?!

I haven’t written a WUW post in a couple of months, so I was happy to join this link up today. Don’t forget to check out the other ladies’ posts as well!

Thanks so much for reading.

  1. How did I miss those KS bracelets? Those are perfection! I hardly wear bracelets right now with all my typing but I typically feel naked without bracelets when I go somewhere! The Target set looks cozy! Iโ€™m the same at Target but Iโ€™ve done really well lately.

  2. Hayden’s ‘Bachelor’ shirt is so cute! Now I’m going to go scour the web to see if anyone has a similar shirt for our boys! And YAYAYAYAYAY about the Chiefs!! Second year in a row that I’ll pay attention to the game!


    1. Hayden is quite the homebody, so Iโ€™ve always joked I need to get a bigger size of that shirt for when heโ€™s still living with us at home after college ๐Ÿ˜‚ Yes! The chiefs will take all the fans we can get. Hoping for another super bowl win !


  3. I like all those sweaters! I’m excited about Monthly Musings tomorrow!!! Yay!!!

    And I will be cheering for the Chiefs because my aunt lives in Kansas so I love anything from Kansas — except the Royals — I cheer for the Jays ๐Ÿ™‚
