What's Up Wednesday {Link Up}

Hello, ladies! Happy hippity-hump day to all. Today I'm linking up with Shay for "What's Up Wednesday" where we recap our month using her prompts. I've started writing these instead of Currently posts, but I think next month I'll do both. Anyway, on to 'What Was Up' in September.

What We're Eating: September has been a hodgepodge of healthy and horrendous meals. Le Husband and I spent all of winter and spring getting FIT AS S*%% and then summer came and we just kind of ate everything we wanted #oops. Now, it's back to basics and that means cleaner eating this fall.  #yummy #megacheatday #lehusbandwasoutoftown

What I'm Reminiscing About: College and being a collegiate athlete. I can't believe I'm 10 years removed from college.

What I'm Loving: My passport is DONE and home, woohoo! It barely took a month and I'm super stoked to have my married name on my passport. I'm super stoked it was completed so quickly, too. You'll remember I was dreading it last month.

What I'm Dreading: The cold! Ugh, winter is way too close for my liking. And I'm dreading dealing with drama involving Le Husband's passport. He mailed his in BEFORE I did and hasn't received anything back yet. Plus, we haven't been able to check the status on his either. I really hope nothing horrible is in store for us regarding his passport.

What I'm Working On: Getting CPR certified and hopefully auditioning for a BODYPUMP job.

What We've Been Up To: Oh wow, this month has been nothing but travel, travel, travel. We were in Cincinnati for Labor Day weekend and then turned around and flew to Nashville the next weekend. Le Husband then traveled the weekend after, while I stayed home and scrubbed down the apartment and visited friends. Last weekend I was down at my alma mater and this weekend there was the possibility of another trip but I think ticket prices might squash it down. #livingontheroad


What I'm Excited About: BabySpice is HOME! We're doing a sisters dinner tonight and I can't wait to hear all about her fabulous travels and welcome her home. Ten days was way too long for her to be away!

What I'm Watching/Reading: I just finished Girl On the Train [what was the hype about] and Astronaut Wives Club [the show was more fun] which I'll review in October. Now that fall shows are back on I'm knee deep in Castle, NCIS [all three series], The Good Wife, Elementary Worst Chefs in America [Celebrity], Ladies of London and can't wait for Madam Secretary. I want to watch Scream Queens, has anyone seen it? So happy fall television is back, I've missed my shows!

What I'm Listening To: Honestly, nothing is really striking my fancy right now. I'm listening to the radio on the way to work, BODYPUMP music on the way home and every now and then a good song will come into play. For some reason, FALL OUT BOY'S Uma Thurman is repeating itself on my listen list [so catchy] but other than that I can't really tell you anything that's HOT ON THE RADIO WAVES. Someone wanna help a girl out?


What I'm Wearing: Even though it is now officially fall I'm still grasping at my summer wardrobe. Maxi dresses, capris pants and flips are my go to pieces until the weather stops hitting the 70s. When it's chilly I'm rocking my dark wash skinnies and various flowy tops. Can't bring myself to break out the sweaters yet.


What I'm Doing this Weekend: This weekend was slated for kickball practice and then turned into possibly flying down to Atlanta/Athens for a tournament and friend visit. Well, as of today it appears we are staying in town, but who truly knows with us, haha. #weliketowander #travelbeforebabytime

What I'm Looking Forward To About Next Month:  I can't wait for our yearly Vegas trip. This will mark our SIXTH time out to Vegas for Kickball [ 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014]and I'm excited about where we are staying and the timing of our trip. Fingers crossed we bring home the trophy and the money like we did in 2012!!!!

What Else Is New: We don't really have anything NEW right now, but there are some major changes we are looking at in the future. No, I'm not with child. I have a post in drafts regarding everything but right now it's going to stay there until I feel more settled.

What were your favorite memories from September?

Girl scream queens is a straight up mess of a show - I just dont get it - I watched it for like 7 min when it premiered and 5 minutes last night - can't get into it!! Yay for your new passport - it's always easier than we expect! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

Claire | Fashion + Feathers said...

That ice cream in your basket looks so yummy! Loving your outfits and all your traveling. Our traveling has left me exhausted recently but worth it I guess!

Joey @ Hodgespodges said...

I'm with you about the hype up of the girl on the train. It was okay. Good. But not OMG AMAZING.

Ashley Greenwell said...

I want everything in that first shopping basket! S’mores ice-cream sounds delicious!

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Those pierogis... omg! Yum! Glad your passport came back so quickly, that's almost unheard of! And so jealous you were in my hometown over Labor Day... I want to go back so bad! Definitely was not impressed with Girl on the Train either. Eh.

Kathy@MoreCoffeeLessTalky said...

i read like 15 pages of Girl on the Train and turfed it. Not sure what the hype was about either!

christina @ the new mrs said...

It's always a relief to get those passport changes done! I had to rush get my married name because we were trip planning with the new name a little quicker than we should have!

Illegally Blonde said...

Ugh passport whoas! You had a busy month sheesh Im exhausted from reading about it. Yay kickball! Go Vegas! And tell the sissys hi for me and that I need a major London recap from baby spice!

Julia said...

I remember all the name change stuff I had to do, so many things you don't think about until you have to do it! Oh my gosh, I get kind of freaked out when I realized how long ago it was that I graduated college! I feel so old! :D

Foxy's Domestic Side said...

Yes to wearing summer stuff. Everyone in my office moved yesterday, I'm getting moved on Friday, I asked Mr. if I wear shorts to work and no one sees me it doesn't count right? haha.

Nikki @ makeupHER said...

I tried hanging onto summer weather as long as possible, but Chicago didn't seem to get the same memo. Phew all that traveling sounds exhausting and like so much fun, but yay for Vegas for the 6th time, that should be fun especially if you bring back a trophy and cash money!!!

Leslie said...

I'm still wearing summer clothes too, because it seems so humid out still! Yay for your sister being in town!

Amanda {Kids and Cabernet} said...

I'm still in Summer clothes too because it's still so dang hot here! It probably wont cool down for another month, if that! Yay for Vegas and that ice cream looks YUM!

Tiara Wasner said...

Yay for Fall TV. I'm so not ready for winter. I played water polo in college and a wish it was easier to pick up a game now and then. Good luck in Vegas sounds like a blast.

Katie Elizabeth said...

Oh my gosh, we definitely ate the same way this summer - and now after breaking my jeans out this week, I'm definitely feeling it. Back to good, whole foods for us, too! With a cheat day, here and there ;)

Life with Lolo said...

I'm dreading the cold too, and cold season. My roommate already has the dreaded "cough" and I have been downing vitamin C ever since I first heard it. Why can't we just have fall and winter without the dreaded cold weather and viruses that come with?! PS, I loved the #travelbeforebabytime hashtag! Do it while you can! I just found out my best friend is pregnant and I'm like crap you better come visit before it gets here! PS, since you are so fab at hashtags you should come join in my link up *shameless plug* :)

Happy humpday lady!

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

Fall, friends, college, ice cream, cute outfits! It is all perfect!

Queen In Between said...

Did you seriously not love Girl on the Train?!! And I'm in a little weird music phase right now...typically I'm all music all the time and I just haven't been feeling anything. Happy Fall!

Rebecca Jo said...

Good luck on the body pump audition!
Does that trophy have the ball attached? :) Congrats on a great kickball year!

Kelsey @ The Peacock Roost said...

Looking forward to hear what's on the go for you guys right now!! I'm sad maxi dress season is done, but I'm hoping for a few more days to sneak in a few wears!! But fall just might be officially here!! We were doing well on the healthy eating train too and then I became pregnant and it's gone haywire!! We will hopefully get back on track soon!!
