What's Up Wednesday

Holy cow you guys, April is right around the corner!  Wasn't it just Halloween?  Ay ay ay.  And Spring weather has definitely arrived in Texas #allthestorms #tornadowatch #crazyhail

Since April is about to enter the picture, that means it's time for What's Up Wednesday!  This is one of my favorite posts to write.

What We're Eating This Week

Monday: One of our favorites - pesto pasta salad
Tuesday - fish with roasted broccoli
Wednesday - pork tenderloin with roasted broccoli (there's a lot of broccoli in the veggie drawer)
Thursday - Southwest turkey burgers
Friday - dinner out at Abuelo's
Saturday - not sure yet but we might go to the movies

We made Quinoa King Ranch Casserole on Sunday and it was DELICIOUS.  Phillip has taken leftovers for lunch twice this week.  So yummy. 

What I'm Reminiscing About

Two years ago over Spring Break, we went to Fredricksburg/Enchanted Rock for a long weekend and we loved it.  I would love to go back and hike there again.

What I'm Loving


This Dalilah necklace from Stella & Dot is my new favorite necklace.  I wear it to work, I wear it on weekends, I love it.

What We've Been Up To

A little of this, a little of that.  Some things I can't share yet, but will be able to hopefully by the next time What's Up Wednesday rolls around...other things we've been up to?

Let's Go Mavs!  Last Saturday we hit up the Mavericks game.  We try to go every season.  This was probably the last time we saw Dirk play.  I get the feeling he might retire after this season #insertsadface

I had a paper due Sunday night and an online trunk show that I was running so Phillip made dinner Sunday night.  He made that Quinoa King Ranch casserole I raved about earlier.

On Monday, I hit my 100 class milestone with Pure Barre Las Colinas.  100 classes!  Y'all know how I feel about barre, so it felt good to get to this achievement.  I great big puffy heart my studio, it's amazing instructors, and the super lovely owner.  I love my time there.

And then this diva.  #sigh.  Her left eye was watering and she was keeping it closed.  After the craziness with her right eye last winter, I wanted to nip this in the bud if possible.  And yes, she has a corneal ulcer on her left eye.  It's still super small though and we caught it way earlier than the last one, so just ointment this time.  #sheyowledthewholetime #alsorudetothevet #suchadiva

What I'm Dreading

Several weeks of putting ointment in the diva cat's eye.  #truth

What I'm Working On

School work, homework, some Stella & Dot stuff.  Like this promotion:

For the month of April, all proceeds from these two bracelets (they're $19 each) go to the HollyRod Foundation.  I love working for a company that gives back.  I'm also working on some trunk shows for April.  If you'd like to host, let me know!  We can set it up online through Facebook.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

What I'm Excited About


It's this guy's birthday in a few weeks and we have a fun night planned including a stay at The Highland and dinner at Knife

What I'm Watching/Reading

I got through 2 books and have started a third since we last checked in.

Hillbilly Elegy was excellent.  Thought provoking and sad at times, I could not put it down.

To be honest, I was only meh on All the Missing Girls.  I had a hard time staying with it.  The plot was twisty, which I usually love, however none of the characters were likable.  It's hard to be invested when you don't care what happens to ANY of the characters.

I'm currently reading The End of Dieting which I am really enjoying.  And there are a ton of recipes at the back.  I love things that encourage me to be mindful about my health and my eating.

What I'm Listening To

Oh this podcast!  It has sucked me in. I would have been interested in it based on the premise alone.  Each season they will look at crime history in a particular city. And then they had to start with my city of Providence, Rhode Island.  It is so so interesting.  And who doesn't love learning about the mob?  There is some adult language, so I'd refrain from listening with little ones in the car, unless you want them talking like a mobster.

What I'm Wearing

sweater | top | skirt (similar) | shoes | essential fringe necklace | watch

dress | clutch | stellar pave ring | chandelier (similar)

tee | pants | rebel pendant | watch | wrap bracelet | knot hoops | shoes

What I'm Doing This Weekend

We have the Fort Worth Zoo Run on Saturday morning and I have a baby shower Saturday afternoon.  We might hit up the movies Saturday night to see Logan.  Sunday - rest!  And barre #ofcourse

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

It's this guy's birthday, so we'll celebrate that.  I am also looking forward to celebrating Beej's birthday!  And maybe a couple of quiet weekends?  One can hope, right?

What Else is New

Not much, but stay tuned!  Oh and we booked the rehearsal dinner venue - woohoo!

What is Your Favorite Spring Wardrobe Piece

I know it's a special occasion dress, but I love love love this maxi dress from Banana Republic.  As soon as I saw that pop of green, I was sold.

That's what's up with us!  What's up with you?  Sound off in the comments!  I'll see you back here for Friday Favorites.
