What's Up Wednesday

Today I am linking up with Shay, Sheaffer and Mel for What's Up Wednesday and answering these questions....

What We're Eating this Week...well in about 7 weeks the hubby and I are going to Disney World. I want to look lean and toned in my shorts and my swimsuit so I have been on my meal prep. I have 5 small meals a day that include protein (talipia, shrimp, chicken or turkey), rice and lots of veggies. I try to prepare all my food in advance so I am prepared for the week.

My favorite meal on my prep is always BREAKFAST. This week I get oatmeal with berries, Greek yogurt and honey!! YUMMY

What I'm reminiscing about...I am wishing I was on SPRING BREAK!! I used to be a school teacher and would enjoy the week either skiing or on a cruise.

What I'm Loving...

The warmer temperatures....I am loving it is cool in the morning and warmer in the afternoon. I have been enjoying wearing dresses and my favorite new GITA earrings from the Stella and Dot line.

What We've Been up to...packing and moving. I am in TX now...I also got my new car this week!!

What I'm Dreading...UNPACKING. We are closing on a house Friday and getting everything moved and settled will be a task. Boxes, boxes and more boxes.

What I'm Working On...I have started a new job and that is keeping me very busy. I am working with my father now and learning the business...more details later.

What I'm Excited About...

TEXAS!!! I love all the bluebonnets I see daily. I also am excited about the launch of Stella's Summer line there are so great new fun pieces!!

Friday Favorites

Today I am linking up with Erika, Narci and Andrea for Friday Favorites!!! Happy FRIYAY!!

Tuesday, evening I watched the final episode of This is Us and I have to say I wasn't very impressed. I mean the last 2-3 episodes I have literally cried pretty much the whole time and I felt like the season finale was just BLAH!! Anyone else feel the same way?

I don't truly know how I am feeling about the time change...I will so be looking forward to it this summer when I am up later watching baseball, and grilling dinner outside but right now ahhh I don't like waking up when it is dark.

The gym I worked at back in Shreveport got voted the best classes and instructors....I was very blessed while living in Shreveport to workout here and also teach. I am proud of the owner Lauren and all the fabulous instructors.

Who else is excited for Beauty and the Beast?!?! I am hoping to go see it this weekend. :-)

Lately, on repeat I have been listening to the Trolls, Sing and Wicked Soundtracks and just signing along and dancing. The songs are all so upbeat and fun!

Stella and Dot new releases have launched and I am loving the new white tassels and sneak peak this adorable clutch for the SUMMER!!

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E...Mickey Mouse...Mickey Mouse and of course Minnie too!!!

Thank you to my fabulous friend Ashley and her travel guidance we are gearing up for our trip to Disney World at the beginning of May.

My husband hasn't been to Disney since Middle School and I haven't been since college. In our 8 years of marriage we have never been to a Fair or an amusement park. CRAZY but TRUE!!

This past week, we booked our Fast Passes and I am beyond excited about some of the rides we choose!!

Soarin' is a new ride at EPCOT where you basically hang glide...I am super pumped about this ride!! I am sure we will also enjoy the test track at Disney but we didn't book a fast pass for it.

When I was a kid, I didn't particularly enjoy EPCOT...however the last time I went they had added rides and I enjoyed learning more about the different cultures. I have eaten at both the Japanese and Chinese restaurants at EPCOT and I honestly don't know which one I would say is better. I enjoyed them both!!!

When we visit Animal Kingdom we have a Fast Pass for Expedition Everest...I don't remember this particular ride the last time I was there so I am excited to try it out.

At Hollywood Studios we are riding one of my all-time favorites...Rock n' Roller coaster featuring Aerosmith!!
Who doesn't love MAGIC KINGDOM!! Cinderella's Castle, Mickey and Minnie, the fireworks show and Tinkerbelle to just mention a few of my favorites.
Next up....what to pack for DISNEY?!

Life Lately....

Life lately around here has consisted of packing, moving drama and some fun time with family and friends!!!

Tuesday, in Louisiana was Fat Tuesday which means KING CAKE, purple, gold and green!!! Fat Tuesday is the end of Mardi Gras and the beginning of Lent. My sweet husband gave up sweets and God Bless his soul that one is going to be hard to do!!

I decided instead of splurging and wasting calories on Tuesday, I would do a 30 minute spin class and enjoy some yummy food at home. :-) While, I do enjoy sweets I splurge more on cheat nights (Friday or Saturday) and have my wine and dessert.

Tuesday afternoon, I also cleaned out my closet and donated 4 bags of clothes to Goodwill. It felt good to clean out the closet before the move and I only kept what I truly wear and truly love. Face it I live in workout pants these days lol.

Speaking of what is your favorite brand of workout wear?!? I love Zella, Nike and LuLulemon.

Thursday, was my sweet grandmother's 84th birthday. We weren't able to travel down and celebrate with her but we sent my parents a King Cake and she enjoyed it as her birthday cake.

Also, on Thursday, new arrivals launched with Stella and Dot...I am excited for some Spring trunk shows!!

Saturday evening, the hubs and I went to dinner at the Petroleum Club and enjoyed a steak dinner with dessert afterwards at the Steakhouse. Carrot cake just was screaming my name and I couldn't turn it down.

I have been busy cleaning at home and wanted to share some of my favorite products!!!

OMG these Mr. Clean Magic Reach Scrubbing brushes will change your LIFE....just say Thank You later!!! These easily clean my shower and bath in about 2-3 minutes. They are easy and when you finish using the little pad they just go right in the trash. :-)

Downy Un-Stopables are amazing too!!! I add a little cup to each load of my laundry and they make my towels, sheets and just everything smell sooo good!!

Well...I am off to continue packing and cleaning...Happy Sunday!!!
