What's Up Wednesday #11

I'm linking up for this month's What's Up Wednesday! Click here to read entries from prior months! 


What we're eating this week:
We tend to eat fairly simply over here -- my lunches and dinners are usually more salad / veggie based while Andy focuses on lots of proteins. That being said, our meals lately have been pretty random because we're currently playing a game called clean out the fridge before we move. As I'm typing this I'm eating a bowl full of quinoa, green peas, chickpeas, a fresh squeeze of lemon juice, and topped with some greens and diced tomatoes. 

What I'm reminiscing about:
Lately I've found myself thinking more about the near future than reminiscing on the past. Now that the 4th of July is behind us, I'm really looking forward to fall -- we have so many good things on the horizon and I just want to take part in all of it. Setting up our new house, hosting holidays and events, cooking in a new kitchen, being neighbors with my sister, reading out on our deck on crisp mornings, etc.

What I'm loving:
Spending weekend afternoons at the pool with Andy -- we're toying with the idea of switching gyms once we move to our new neighborhood since there's a gym much closer (and my sister belongs to it as well), so I'm trying to take advantage of Life Time's outdoor pools in case we don't have that option next summer! 

What we've been up to:
Packing up everything in this house -- I'm actually really proud of us because we really don't have a lot of excess clutter, which has made packing fairly simple compared to previous moves. Ever since I read this book and this book, I've adapted a more simplistic lifestyle and it's been so freeing.

What I'm dreading:
I think I mentioned this last week, but the physical part of moving. Luckily, we're hiring professionals to deal with the furniture! 

What I'm working on:
Trying to be patient as we live in limbo -- our living room is currently stacked with boxes that are ready to be loaded into the moving truck.

What I'm excited about:
Making our new house a home

What I'm watching / reading:
I read so many great thrillers this month -- be sure to check back tomorrow for my monthly book review! 

What I'm listening to:
This album by my favorite band has been on repeat lately! 

What I'm wearing:
These shorts and simple tanks since it's been so hot and muggy out! 

What I'm doing this weekend:

What I'm looking forward to next month:
Living in our new house!

What else is new:
I have SO many blog post ideas once we're in our new house and can't wait to share them! Our current rental is not very photogenic, so I'm really excited about finally being in a pretty space and being able to take lots of pics for blog posts!
