What’s Up Wednesday



Today I thought I’d do something a little different and link up with Shay over at Mix and Match Mama as she co-hosts What’s Up Wednesday!

What We’re Eating This Week

This week, we’re eating a random assortment of things as we attempt to clean out the fridge!  The cooler weather has me craving all the soups – so I whipped up a loaf of bread and made Pinch of Yum’s Detox Broccoli Cheese Soup.  This has quickly become one of my favorite soup recipes!  I used two bags of steamed broccoli and found a protein-rich nut milk to boost the staying power and amp up the protein content of the soup.  Winner winner 🙂


What I’m Reminiscing About

This past weekend – it was beautiful and we did a lot of hiking!


What I’m Loving

Slippers.  It is freezing in our apartment in the early mornings and evenings, and my slippers are saving me from prematurely flipping on the heat.  I have slipper moccasins from Old Navy, but these (less than $20) and these also look comfy and cute for fall and winter.


What We’ve Been Up To

Finishing our fourth Fall Hiking Spree!


What I’m Dreading

I’m not sure if it’s dreading, it just takes some getting used to…. but the gray, cool weather has been around for a few days now and it’s a shock to the system after a weekend of sun and 70’s.  Knowing that this is what we are settling in to for the next several months it’s mentally daunting, but I’m focusing on enjoying what the season brings – cozy sweaters, evening hot tea, and the upcoming holidays with family and friends are just a few things that come to mind!

What I’m Working On

Studying. 🙂

What I’m Excited About

Tonight is the last race of the Fall Running Series!

What I’m Watching/Reading

Watching – Fuller House season 3 (such a cute and cheesy show!) and rewatching Parks and Rec (Leslie and Chris are my spirit animals…love them!).

Reading – The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin, Unshakeable by Tony Robbins, and Intuitive Eating by Ellen Tribole and Elyse Resch.  If you have any fiction (happy, light, and fun) or other non-fiction read suggestions, I’m all ears!

What I’m Listening To

My study materials.  Seriously.


If I’m not listening to my study materials, I’m listening to podcasts.  My new favorite is the RD Real Talk podcast!  I love hearing RD’s share their experiences and advice with fellow colleagues.

What I’m Wearing

A wrap cardigan or flannel shirt, yoga pants/leggings, and slippers (of course).  Life is good, friends.

What I’m Doing This Weekend

I’m hoping to spend some time reading and working on my temperature blanket.  At the rate I’m going, 2017’s blanket will be finished by mid-2018!

What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month

There’s a lot going on in November, but I am most excited about Thanksgiving!

What Else Is New

I’m planning out my 2018 race calendar, which is exciting!  I’ll share what I plan to sign up for soon!

Have a great day!
