What I'm Up To {February}

Another month, another linkup with Shay. I've missed the past few months but finally got back on track. I think it's such a fun way to look back on each month and see where life has taken us. #bloggingforthejournalwin


What We're Eating: Oh boy, it's been mostly bad and delicious food which is no good. February was not the best food wise which kind of makes me laugh because LAST February was my first foray into Whole30. I need to get back on the healthy train stat, my body is not happy with me right now. #backonthecleantrain #eatrightgetright
Valentine's day cupcake, 'golden snitch' from Harry Potter movieathon, Buckeye cake, get healthy Yogi tea, steak wraps w/a half sweet potato, PB M&Ms, CHAMPS, Menchies and banana with almond butter.

What I'm Reminiscing About: Nothing and everything. This will be a paragraph next month, ha!

What I'm Loving:
The small pops of spring weather. I can't wait for winter to be over and spring to arrive.

What I'm Dreading: A meeting with my boss today. It's annual review time and I'm not worried at all about how that will go. In my line of work it's pretty easy to tell how we are doing [awesome] and all I really wanna know is the bonus and raise number. I'm DREADING the part afterwards, where I get to share, it's gonna get sticky.  

What I'm Working On:  BODYPUMP choreography, bridal shower planning, and listsonlistsonlists.

What We've Been Up To: Getting our ducks in a row, purchasing tickets, planning, planning and more planning.

What I'm Excited About: April and May!

What I'm Watching/Reading:  We are watching all the normal shows and I'm in the middle of a bunch of awesome books. I honestly can't wait to review them for y'all next month, 99% of them were AMAZING. Teaser alert: go get 'Little Princes' and start reading books written by Laura Lippman.
 
What I'm Listening To: All the BODYPUMP music, all day errrrday. Being a  new instructor means learning past release so classes aren't boring and we JUST received the newest release which is only list for next week. I'm learning the chorey pretty quickly now so hopefully it won't take me as long to learn 97 as it did 96. #enjoyedteachingittofamilyonthecruise



What I'm Wearing: February has been a mishmash of outfits due to the weather. During the cold weeks I rocked leggings and sweaters and when it warmed up I pulled out the long skirts and boots. Of course no month would be complete without me rocking my FAVORITE plaid shirt. #wearitallthetime #almostspringwardrobetime #bringonthedressesandflips
What I'm Doing this Weekend: Celebrating Sportyspice's 30th birthday on Friday night! We are going out to dinner and then to a pub in the area which should be a fun time. Saturday Babyspice and I are having a day of testing recipes for Sportyspice's bridal shower and I'm super stoked for my cupcake idea. Fingers crossed they all turn out fabulously.
 
What I'm Looking Forward To About Next Month:
Getting things streamlined, purging things I don't need, meet ups with friends and reveling in the day to day. Lots of changes means soaking up all the good.

What Else Is New:
Big changes are coming in pinkland [no, no babies, yet] and I am super excited to share everything next month. No, I'm not click baiting, I just can't share anything quite yet. Once everything is more set, you'll know.

What is Your Favorite Easter Tradition: Visiting the living cross for family pictures and Easter brunch/dinner. We tend to mix it up between going out and cooking every year or so but I just love being around those I love as we celebrate Christ.

What were you up to in February?!

I kicked ass on eating in January and started off great in February but have been on a major carb bust this past week. I seriously had to look at the picture of you in the plaid shirt forever before I realized it was a balloon....at first it looked like your hair was flying up in the air...lmao. What is wrong with me?!!
