This year I’ve decided to start something new! On the last Wednesday of each month fellow bloggers Shay, Mel, & Sheaffer host a link up where everyone answers the same questions about what they’ve been up to each month. It’s always a post that I enjoy reading and I’m excited to participate this year! Here’s to January’s What’s Up Wednesday!
1. What I’m Eating This Week… SUGAR!!!
Our church did a 21 day Daniel Fast for the month of January which consists of no meat and no sweets. I’m vegetarian and so I don’t eat meat but cutting out all sugar is HARD! The fast ended at sundown on Sunday and my first taste of sugar was a Krispy Kreme donut. I rarely eat donuts but for some reason, I really wanted one so that’s what I had. Even though the fast is over I’m determined not to go crazy with the sweets because honestly after our Disney trip in December and then all of the holiday desserts I really needed a sugar detox.
2. What I’m Reminiscing About… Our Disney Trip!
Since I’ve practically spent the entire month of January recapping the trip here on the blog, I’ve been reliving it as I’ve gone through photos and videos. In fact, I spent a good part of today going through over four hours of video for our Day 7 vlog. There’s nothing more magical than Disney World at Christmas!
3. What I’m Loving… My Polaroid Zip
I love to scrapbook but I don’t have the time to devote to keeping up with it so this year I decided to turn my planner into a memory keeping project. I take a little time every Sunday to print out special photos on my Polaroid Zip and stick them in my planner. I’ve started using stickers to dress up the week and I’m loving how it’s turning out so far. Now my planner not only keeps me organized, but it will be a great memento to look back on.
The Polaroid Zip allows you to print photos straight from your phone’s camera roll. You can purchase one for yourself here and save $10 if it is your first order at Erin Condren.
4. What I’ve Been Up To… Taking care of Bailey.
Two weeks ago we spent three days at the vet with Bailey getting IV fluids. She is in kidney failure and had a really bad week. Thankfully our amazing vets were able to stabilize her and get her feeling better again. We are now giving her IV fluids every other day here at home and she is on supportive medications to help her kidneys. She’s had a really great past few days. Her appetite is back and she seems to have more energy than she has in a while. She even ran up and down the stairs to go out into the yard yesterday and she hasn’t done that in months.
5. What I’m Dreading… Nothing at the moment 🙂
6. What I’m Working On… Taxes, blog posts, and sponsored content.
I’m sure everyone is busy getting together tax stuff so I’m not alone there. I’m also finishing up our Disney posts this week and working on a few other post ideas. I have a deadline approaching for a sponsored blog post for Aysia’s website that I need to complete so I’m working on that too.
7. What I’m Excited About… Superbowl Sunday!
I don’t consider myself a big football fan but I do love watching the Superbowl (mostly for the commercials). It’s always a family day filled with fun and food. My team didn’t make it this year (Go Titans!) so I’m rooting for the Eagles.
8. What I’m Watching/Reading… the Hallmark Channel.
I’m a girl who loves the Hallmark Channel. I love the sappy romantic movies and I love that it’s good family friendly TV.
9. What I’m Listening To… Nothing particular.
10. What I’m Wearing… Warm cozy clothes!
My go-to outfits in this freezing weather include these items.
11. What I’m Doing This Weekend… Going sledding?
We have a 60% chance of snow this weekend and if we get enough we have new sleds to break in!
12. What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month… A concert with friends.
Christian and I are going to a concert with friends next month. We have seen the artist perform a few times before so I know it’s going to be a good show.
13. What Else Is New… New YouTube videos coming soon.
Last year I filmed the Peeps Challenge video with Christan for Easter and I have another idea for a video that I want to film. If it turns out the way I hope, it’s going to be pretty funny! I enjoy the filming and editing process so I really want to do more of those videos this year just for fun.
