What’s Up?!

Confession: I am kind of nosey. 😉

Example: I like to watch design shows on HGTV because I like seeing the inside of other people’s houses. I like pictures on social media because you can see where your friends and family go…and I don’t just read the caption, I take in the facial expressions, outfits, scenery…the details. That’s probably why I also like reading blogs so much…you get a little peek into everyone’s life (or the life they choose to share).

I just really like to know things about people. My family and my closest friends are some of my favorite people (obviously) because I feel like I know everything about them…yet I still learn something new about them from time to time. That is so special to me!

Because I love details, I also love surveys. Even when I get an email survey from a restaurant or store, you can guarantee that I’m that one customer who will take five minutes to fill out silly information and respond. All throughout high school, one of my friends and I exchanged email surveys. We saw each other every day at school and even rode the bus together, but we still sent surveys back and forth with silly details about one another. I don’t use that email account much anymore but I have all our emails saved in a folder. 🙂

So, when I saw Mel post a blog survey, I was really excited. This is right up my alley!


What I’m eating this week:


A bag of chocolate chips is honestly my top pick. These are filled with peanut butter. I mean, how can you say no to that?! My supply is quickly dwindling, but in my defense, the bag is half the size of a bag of regular chocolate chips. 😉

What I’m Reading:


Jesus Calling in the morning, Devotions in the evening. I also started one of the three books I have out from the library right now –> Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham. But mostly my books are collecting dust right now. I am ashamed.

What I’m Loving:


I am not afraid to admit that Glade candles have my heart this week. I can be in the other room and still notice the scent and they smell SO good.

What I’ve Been Up To:


My thesis. We have a rough draft due tomorrow. Which is both a blessing and a curse! It gets me started and gives me feedback on how I’m doing so far…but I’ve been having some writer’s block. I need to do the whole “skip the first sentence and just write” thing that I tell people about all the time at The Writing Center. It feels good to just get words down on the page!

What I’m Dreading:

Going to the gas station to put air in my tire. Cold weather, please disappear. Or at least let my tires keep their air! The thought of going to the gas station to do this every two weeks makes me want my Dad, NOW. I do not feel empowered working on my own car. It is not fun!

What I’m Working On:


The number one thing I am working on is paying attention in Statistics. I just don’t understand, which translates to I just don’t care, and that is not helpful at all. So last night I was taking extensive notes: PowerPoint on the projector, PowerPoint on my laptop, professor’s notes on the board, notes in my notebook. All of that is actually helpful. 🙂 My professor does most of the “work” in his head and I cannot follow along! I have to write it all out. Midterm next Tuesday! Pray for me!

What I’m Excited About:


Reuniting with my friends over Spring Break. 🙂 I don’t even care what our plans are. I just want to see them all! I haven’t been home in a long time. 9 more days!

What I’m Watching:


My favorite shows to watch during the week are The Celebrity Apprentice, The Bachelor, Pretty Little Liars, and Scandal with a side of HGTV and TLC. However, Pretty Little Liars and Scandal are starting to lose my interest, The Bachelor is almost over, and The Celebrity Apprentice just ended, so I have decided that life is all about Grey’s Anatomy. Thank you, Netflix.

What I’m Listening To:

My roommate is watching Suits. 🙂

What Music I’m Listening To:

I have an odd obsession with Nicki Minaj. She is just a boss.

What I’m Annoyed By:


[Throwback with my cute dog]

As evidenced by the tennis ball on my foot, I really like to sit cross-legged. Indian style, if you will. 😉 In fact, I am sitting like that right now with my laptop in my lap. But my left knee hates being bent in this position for too long. To which I can only say…runner problems? I must be getting old? Why does my knee hurt?!

What I’m Reminiscing About:


Being warm and happy;)

What I’m Looking Forward To:


I’m singing “Wonderland” in my head right now which reminds me of my happiness about going to see Taylor Swift in June!

What I’m Thankful For:

Snow days that are called for ahead of time! We are expecting 5-8 inches of snow tomorrow and instead of quitting life at 2:30 p.m. today when I heard we would be off tomorrow, I continued doing homework. TIME FOR ALL THE RELAXING!

What I’m Hoping For:

That after we get 5-8 inches of snow…it really is 55 degrees every single day next week like they are promising…I just want to do this…


Run in shorts + long sleeves to all the pretty places!

What I Wore Today:


I tried really hard to look good for my two hour shift at The Writing Center. Hahaha

What Else Is New:


I’m thinking about food;) My favorite meal is so very obvious. Some kind of chicken with broccoli and sweet potato. Can someone please help me be more creative?! I just looked at my Pinterest to see what I’ve been pinning lately…and I’ve been pinning mostly desserts. So that’s not very promising. 🙂

Your turn! Tell me what’s up with you!

  1. Mmm.. I love chicken, broccoli, and sweet potatoes! It’s just such a perfect, balanced meal!

    I love candles, too. I have one burning right now. It’s called “lemon lavender” and it’s definitely my favorite scent! I am so with you on dreading going to the gas station to get gas/put air in tires/etc. when it’s so cold out, but hopefully next week is what the meteorologists are saying it will be!!

    Also, yay for library books! I read Not That Kind of Girl recently! What do you think of it? I thought it was just.. blah. I don’t know?! I really love Jesus Calling, though! Have you ever read The Purpose Driven Life? It’s a great spiritual book!

    • I just put my dish in the sink…because I just finished eating TURKEY, broccoli, and sweet potato. I’m really getting creative over here;) I’m not that far into the book yet but I am getting the same “eh kinda” vibe that it seems like you did! I just thought it would be LOL funny like Chelsea Handler’s books and it’s not! But I’m still trying to give it a chance. I haven’t read The Purpose Driven Life! My mom and my aunt have and they both loved it! I really wanted to get into a routine of reading from my Bible every morning so that’s what Jesus Calling has helped me to do. I will have to branch out to the other book, though. 🙂
