What's Up Wednesday #7

I'm linking up today for this month's What's Up Wednesday! It's always so fun back to reflect on the past month as I fill out this questionnaire each month!

What we're eating this week:
I've been mixing up this salad all week and it is hitting the spot! The salad is organic mixed greens, avocado, chickpeas, black beans, goat cheese, grape tomatoes, and a homemade dressing. I've been playing around with making my own salad dressings lately and it's always so easy and tastes so fresh and delicious! I just mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a splash of pure maple syrup, the juice of a lemon, two cloves of garlic, and some pink Himalayan sea salt and black pepper! 

What I'm reminiscing about:
Warmer weather and being able to take walks outside -- we keep alternating between bitterly cold weather and 40 degrees, and those 40-degree days have me itching to get outside!

What I'm loving:
We had a blizzard last week and it was so pretty outside! I left work around 1pm to head home since the snow was falling one inch per hour -- I spent the rest of the afternoon working from home on some illustrations and then had a relaxing evening enjoying the blizzard outside out windows.

What we've been up to:
I feel like we've been so busy lately -- our weeknights fly by so quickly due to having a lot going on, but there are a lot of good things on the horizon because of it! We had a random night with nothing going on last week, so I picked up pizza on the way home and we had an impromptu picnic in the living room. It's nights like these that are some of my favorites.

What I'm dreading:
Our meeting with our accountant -- womp, womp. I always dread this meeting because it's painfully boring and drags on since we have to go through so many papers documenting our freelance work for taxes.

What I'm working on:
So many fun projects at work -- I'll be sure to share them once they hit store shelves in late 2018!

What I'm excited about:
Okay, does anyone else feel ridiculously excited about getting their car washed once the temp is over 32 degrees? I drove into work last week feeling like a million bucks just because my vehicle was finally clean again.

What I'm watching / reading:
Grey's, This is Us, and American Housewife as always. As far as reading goes, I've been working through my latest stack from the library -- I've got this one cracked open at the moment.

What I'm listening to:
I've been checking out some digital audiobooks from our library on my phone and will often listen to them during my commute to and from work each day -- it makes the drive fly by and is so much more entertaining than the radio stations.

What I'm wearing:
These boots everyday! They keep my feet nice and dry as I walk to and from work each day.

What I'm doing this weekend:
Most likely our usual mix of a date night, the gym, and relaxing! Plus, it's Superbowl weekend so we'll be sure to have that on! 

What I'm looking forward to next month:
Valentine's Day! I'm excited for a special mid-week date with Andy and I'm also thinking that we need to pick up some Valentine candy as well! Seasonal candy always seems to taste the best! :)

What else is new:
I think that covers just about everything!
