What’s Up Wednesday


One Wednesday a month I will participate in What’s Up Wednesday hosted by  Mel, Sheaffer and Shay . Each month we will answer the following questions:


What I am eating:
I actually am doing a post about this on Friday, so stay tuned for recipes from the Gatlin home! SPOILER – they’re simple, cheap and relatively healthy (and I actually mean that, unlike the Food Network Peeps who claim “30 Minute Meals!” that actually take 2 hours).

What I am reminiscing about:
Our weekend trip to Asheville earlier this month. Hanging out with my family and seeing my life long bestie was so refreshing!

What I am loving:
I am actually really loving this blog! I have never been much of a writer, so it’s nice to have my own corner of the internet to share my thoughts. And people are reading it! That’s always a plus.

What we’ve been up to:
Currently purging our apartment in prepare for our move in May. Man, I love a good purge. I’d like to think I am really good at it. It makes me feel like I have my life together.  It’s also amazing to me how much junk can accumulate in a short period of time!

What I am dreading:
The actual process of moving. Packing, moving and unpacking is not my favorite. I wish I could snap my fingers and everything would teleport from my current apartment to our new one. Thankfully we have a lot of fab humans coming to help us out!

What I am working on:
I am working on our DISNEY trip for October. I’m over the moon about our first vacation in 2+ years. Our hotel and flights are books and we (especially me) are PUMPT.

What I am excited about:
I am excited about our new apartment because it is bigger, which means we can have overnight guests. So, come on over and stay a while! Just be prepared for me to go to bed early because I am an old soul. #notevensorry

What I am watching/reading:
Michael and I are watching The Office all the way through. Michael has never seen it. I know, I am a terrible wife for not making this happen sooner. No worries, we’re fixing this.
As for what I am reading? I am re-reading Girl, Wash Your Face and I also just started The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo.

What I am listening to:
Y’all. You need to listen to the French Cooking Music radio on Pandora. It is so fab, and it will make you feel fancy.

What I am wearing:
I am actually wearing this exact dress in black today. And they’re on sale! Everyone needs to buy one because they are the best ever. I already have it in 2 colors and I might add another one…

What I am doing this weekend:
It’s a LONG WEEKEND! Which is really nice. On Easter Sunday I’m helping my church host a block party for our community, so that will be really fun.

What I am looking forward to next month:
WARM WEATHER! I’m all for a snow day, but this weather is just getting ridiculous.

What else is new?
Just trying to survive tax season. Only 2 more weeks!

I will see you all on Friday for my “Go-To Meals” post.
