What's Up Wednesday

Oh hey Wednesday. Depending on what time you are reading this, we are officially halfway through the work week. Here's what's going on, currently.


What We're Eating This Week... 


The last of Parker's birthday cake. Since I made it a few days late this year, we are still enjoying it. Italian cream cake is our favorite!

What I'm Reminiscing About...

Some couples feed each other the cake nicely. Others do this. To each his own.
Our wedding. In 2 days, we will celebrate 4 years of marriage. Someone asked us this week if it felt like we had been married for 4 years, and we both looked at each other and said it feels like we've been married forever. So much life has happened in these past 4 years. 

What I'm Loving...


Our new neighborhood. It's so friendly and active, and very few things make me more excited than a nice place to go for a run and walk my dogs. We are so happy here. The house hunting process was discouraging in the beginning, but God truly answered our prayers and put us exactly where we wanted to be.

What We've Been Up To...


Decorating. Okay, that's mostly me. I really love the new centerpiece for the coffee table. The plate was 80% off on clearance at Hobby Lobby and the "decorative spheres" (what else do you call those things?) were 50% off. This girl loves a sale!

What I'm Dreading...


Saying goodbye to Darla. She leaves this weekend, and I can't even imagine how hard it's going to be. I tear up just thinking about it. When we said we would watch her for a year while her mom was on deployment, I didn't realize giving her back would be so tough. 

What I'm Working On...

Spray painting old picture frames to reuse them in the new house. It's amazing what a little spray paint will do!

What I'm Excited About...

Our anniversary sailing trip! Parker and I don't do gifts for our anniversary and instead always try to do an experience. This year, we are going sailing. 

What I'm Watching/Reading...

Reading Dreamland by Sarah Dessen and watching Big Brother (it starts this week!).

What I'm Listening To...


The dogs play. They are both such loud, obnoxious players. They are about to be split up and have no idea it's coming, and that breaks my heart. 

What I'm Wearing...

Work-out clothes. I spend M-F in shorts and a tank top in the summer time. Working from home has its perks!

What I'm Doing This Weekend...

Celebrating our anniversary and going to the DWTS Perfect 10 Tour with a friend!

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month...


Relaxation. Moving takes a lot out of you, and it feels like the trips to Lowes and Target are endless. I am looking forward to a weekend where we don't have anything going on!

What Else Is New...

I started incorporating smoothies into my routine and am loving it so far! I stocked the fridge with kale, spinach, and my favorite fruits and am drinking a smoothie every day at lunchtime. So far, it's pretty hard to beat the peanut butter banana smoothie.

I'm so glad that your neighborhood is wonderful, that can be the scariest part about buying a home.

Do you have any good smoothie recipes? I love frozen fruit, Greek Yogurt and almond water but just can't seem to figure out how to work things like kale and spinach into it.

Ooh you got tickets to the DWTS tour? My mom and I were going to buy tickets but they sold out before we had the chance! :(

It's amazing to see what people wear to my office in the summertime. One girl had on sweatpants and Old Navy flipflops. My theory: if you can't wear it to the commissary, then don't wear it to work! (Also, I'm still not over the commissary dress code. It just blows my mind!)

Blessings, Rebecca :)

Love Hobby Lobby! Their sales are the best!

It's great that y'all love your neighborhood!

Hi Chelsea! I'm so glad I found your blog! I'm a Texas girl who just recently moved to Virginia Beach because you guessed it... My husband is in the Navy! Congrats on the new house! Can't wait to keep reading :)

I LOVE Hobby lobby. It's my favorite!

Stephanie said...

AHHHHH! How was the DWTS tour? I am really jealous! Also, I hope saying goodbye to Darla went alright. I know that was hard!

I hope everything went smoothly with the dogs during the transition of Darla leaving!
