What’s Up Wednesday- January 2019

What’s Up Wednesday- January 2019

Hi friends!

It’s time for What’s Up Wednesday with Sheaffer, and Shay! Let’s see what I’ve been up to for the first month of 2019!

What I’m eating this week… still riding strong on the Instant Pot train! I posted here about some recipes we have tried. I took a few pictures too!

Beef Stroganoff
Mexican Rice Casserole
Beef Stew
Mexican Rice
No-Fry Refried Beans
Shredded Chicken for Tacos

What I’m reminiscing about….all of the free time I had before my second job! It’s definitely not a negative that I have this second job but I was able to blog and read more.

What I’m loving…so many things! My heated blanket has been keeping me warm at work. This one isn’t the exact same one I have but it’s the same brand.

I’ve tried to squeeze in manicures for myself at home. This fast dry top coat recommended by Andrea has been a game changer for me. My polish dries so quickly!

My parents gifted me this tiered tray and I’ve enjoyed decorating it 🙂 I have Fiesta themed dishes and have added in a few fun flairs!

What I’ve been up to… finding some good quality wall art. I’ve been wanting to have some canvases made with some recent photographs. Anyone have a good recommendation? I’m leaning towards Costco but I also need a place where the shipping fee does not break the bank!

While I’ve been on a search, part of my gallery wall has been put up!

What I’m dreading… nothing in particular.

What I’m working on… “tidying” up around our household! Step 1 of “Clothes” is nearly complete.

What I’m watching… This Is Us started back up in mid-February and it hasn’t disappointed so far this season. Shay and I are continuing to watch Parks and Rec and a few episodes of Kim’s Convenience. I’m trying to get into Derry Girls and have been watching some British shows on Netflix: 100% Hotter (where do they find these people??!) and Age Gap Love. These type of shows intrigue me. PEOPLE intrigue me!

Derry Girls

What I’m reading… I’m planning to post my January book review on Friday so here is a sneak peak of what I’ve read over the past month (and a little bit at Christmas time shhhh!)

The Rooster Bar

Winter Storms

My Not So Perfect Life

Meet the Frugalwoods

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

Class Mom

Then She Was Gone (currently reading)

What I’m listening to… nothing in particular. A little bit of this, little bit of that!

What I’m wearing… Ooh! I’m excited I actually have some pictures to share! Amy has been featuring a weekly outfit challenge on her blog and outlines what we should wear during the week. This has helped me a lot with getting ready in the morning and also encourages me to mix things up!

What I’m doing this weekend… likely working. It’s also Super Bowl weekend but I’m going to boycott and catch the funny commercials the following day 🙂

What I’m looking forward to next month… my birthday!!!


Hope your 2019 has been off to a great start!
