What’s Up: August

I feel like I was just on the plane back to Michigan writing my What’s Up: July post, where has the time gone?? I’ve been linking up with the first blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts. Each month I’m answering the following questions:


  1. What I’m eating: I’ve been eating the same old thing: Naan bread pizzasloppy joes, and my go-to smoothie. I pretty much eat the same thing every day, and it’s so easy to make/prep for work. Have you guys tried any of these recipes??
  2. What I’m reminiscing about: spending the fourth of July in Michigan with my family. You can read about it here and here! I’ll be back in Michigan soon for a wedding.img_4116
  3. What I’m loving: I’m obsessed with this cold brew! We get it at our local grocery store, but I’d guess it’s at most mainstream places like Kroger or Target/Meijer. We’ve also tried the Mocha flavor, but caramel flavored anything is always my favorite!
  4. What I’m dreading: tax season! I have another busy season with deadlines 9/15 and 10/15, so it’s busy times ahead of me at work 🙁
  5. What I’m Up to: our apartment lease is almost up, so we’ve been looking at other places. We found the perfect place that has the best gym, great views, and a huge kitchen! We signed the lease yesterday and are both so excited to move in 🙂 Here’s a view from a different apartment in the new building, I didn’t take any pictures in the one we will move into yet but it has the best natural light.
  6. What I’m working on: getting the apartment settled. We finally found a couch that we like at West Elm! We are going to get this in an L-shape. We didn’t want to make big purchases until we knew where we were going to be living, so now that that’s settled, we can start finishing up the place once we move in.IMG_4281.JPG
  7. What I’m excited about: I’m turning 25 on Thursday! I’m not excited to be hitting that quarter century mark per-se, but 24 was such a great and exciting year and I can’t wait to see what 25 has in store for me. Here’s a throwback to my fourth birthday! I had to wear special sunscreen because I burned so easily…SCAN0397.jpg
  8. What I’m watching/reading: We are still watching Suits. We watched an episode of  The Crown, we’ve heard a lot of good things about it so we are excited. I want to read the second Crazy Rich Asians book, but I’m waiting until I get a library card to do so
  9. What I’m listening to: This is very random, but I’ve been on a Celine Dion kick lately, and lots of Ed Sheeran
  10. What I’m doing this weekend: my friend’s bachelorette party in Nashville!
  11. What I’m looking forward to next month: I’m looking forward to moving into the new apartment!!! We both knew it was the one the second we walked through the door. I can’t wait to share some pictures with you all! This will be our floor plan
