What's Up Wednesday

What We're Eating This Week - Last night it was grilled chicken with corn and broccoli.  Sunday night I made sloppy joe's (check out my Pinterest Dinnertime board).  Tongiht, I'm not sure, but if the weather hold's out we might hit up Chicken Scratch and The FOundry Friday night (in case y'all were wondering, The Foundry is where P and I met for the first time).  

What I'm Reminiscing About - My grandparents - Grandma and Grandpa Mancone.  Grandpa passed away in 2004 and Grandma passed away in 2007.  The magic of technology however has allowed me to add pictures of them to my collection. I've been reliving a little bit of my childhood lately.  Especially as we ease into summer - frozen Saugy's anybody?

What I'm Loving - Work!  Seriously.  Work has never been busier but I've gotten a little deeper into the International Admissions aspect of my job and I'm really enjoying it.  I'm trying to get as current as possible with all of the procedures, processes, and regulations, which means a lot of webinars and online learning.  My desk looks like this a lot of the time:


What We've Been Up To - Bubble Run!  Not my favorite run, it wasn't as well organized as other's I've participated in.  I ran only part of it.  The trail was too congested and narrow to do much more than walk with the masses.  But this cutie pie popped up:

Miss Lottie had her goggles on and was ready to tackle the bubbles.  Nolan was there too, but he was not so inclined to take a picture.

What I'm Dreading - More rain...

Waterlogged does not even begin to describe it.  There is light at the end of this tunnel however, next week is looking like it's going to clear up a bit.

What I'm Working On Getting back into the swing of things at work.  For the last few weeks this has taken over everything:

It's over now though and with another Commencement behind us (1630+ participants!) I can move on to other things that are needing my attention,
What I'm Excited About - Eight Days!  I'll be home for a visit in 8 days.  I'm excited.  I'm excited to be bringing P with me so he can meet my family and see where I grew up.  Not to mention my brother's wedding reception.  If there's one thing my family loves, it's a wedding.

Also - tomorrow night, Pinterest Told Me To (aka Shaeffer) is hosting an Accessory Concierge event.  I am irrationally excited about this.

What I'm Watching/Reading - I'm reading Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town by John Krakauer.  It's not for the faint of heart.  I'm about halfway through with it now and I need to stop every so often and walk away because I get so rage-y about it all. 

What I'm Listening To - More NPR, but I've got Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and Britney Spears on my playlist.  

What I'm Wearing - Hooray for summer dresses!  Some of my faves recently from Old Navy, Loft, and BR.  Also, since it's commencement season and all, my polo shirt has made it into rotation. 

What I'm Doing This Weekend - P and I have a graduation party on Saturday afternoon for his niece and then Sunday we are off to the Red Sox/Rangers game.  We'll be on the third base side.  Look for us on tv.  I'll be the one in the Red Sox hat next to the tall guy in the Rangers hat.

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month - Going home!  My birthday!  And some really great movies coming:  the new Terminator, Jurassic World...it is a summer of blockbusters. 

What Else is New - We are on Summer Hours now, 10 hour days Monday-Thursday, and I fully intend on taking advantage of my three day weekends from now until the end of July.  Last week I had lunch with Billie-Jo, this week it's lunch with Carey.  

What I'm Grilling This Month - Chicken, of course.  We did turkey burgers last week.  Mix and Match Mama has some burger recipes I'd like to try, so this one might make it into rotation in the near future.
