What's Up Wednesday

It's What's Up Wednesday. 

Which means another month of 2016 has passed. 

Which means one-fourth of the year has passed. 


Okay, rant over. But seriously, what is that? Years have gotten exceedingly faster as I've grown up. Is the world spinning faster than it used to? Is that it? That has to be it. 

 Alright let's do this. This is what's up. 

What I'm Eating this Week

So this is my second week on a 21-day challenge to not be a lazy lard hiney. While "only" three months have passed in the year, I completely let myself go over the months (we're talking Blue Bell every night), and things were just bad. 

So I've made a commitment for 21 days to be better. To eat healthy raw foods, and work out at least 4x a week. And I will say, I do feel so much better. I have energy, I feel good - these people who do this for real aren't lying!! 

...but I also believe in the 80/20 rule. So for the 20% part I've been eating Blueberry Bundt Cake, Heath Bar Cookies, and Strawberry Lemonade Cake. I love the 20%.

What I'm Reminiscing About

Actually - thanks to Facebook Timehop - this picture popped up. This is me, my mom, and my sister in New York City. FIFTEEN years ago. That is a 12-year old Katy right there, people. 

I miss mother daughter trips. We went on one - again to NYC - back in Christmas 2013 (you can read about that girls trip here), and I miss those trips. As you get older and older it gets harder and harder to have trips with the family. And I miss them. 

What I'm Loving

I'm actually loving...and wanting...Kendra Scott's new Eleanor necklace. I'm all about the statement necklaces, but sometimes I just love a good, simple, wear-all-the-time necklace. And this one might be my new staple necklace. Love love love. 

It comes in three color combos. Check them out here.

What I'm Dreading

Bathing Suit Season. See point number one. Just started a week and a half ago. I'm not bathing suit ready yet. Please do not invite me to a pool party until May. If you invite me to one in April, I will be wearing a burka.

What I'm Excited About

EEKS!! I have a pretty darn big announcement to make. But it's so big and so exciting, that it deserves its own post. Maybe tomorrow, maybe early next week. But most definitely soon. HOLY SMOKES I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! 

And you will be too. Stay tuned. News coming your way shortly.

What I'm Watching/Reading

Other than my normal shows (DWTS, Greys, Nashville, Quantico, Scandal, Last Man Standing), I'm also rewatching Gilmore Girls from beginning to end. Lorelai, Rory, and Katy Gilmore. That pretty much sums it up. 

Also - a lot of people are #teamdean or #teamjess, but people. I am #teamlogan. He calls her Ace. I love that. And yes I realize that is a dumb reason to be Team Logan but whatever. 

What I'm reading? Well, you can read all about it in my March Book Review!

What I'm Listening To

Every time I got in the car this weekend, Dan + Shay's new single, From the Ground Up, was playing, and I immediately fell in love with it. So I bought it and it's been on repeat ever since. Such a good sweet song. 

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

Baseball Season. 

Hot dogs, baseball caps, Hamels - I'm so ready. And next month begins everything. Last year I did an entire post on why I love baseball so much. It starts with my dad and ends with cute shirts and hot dogs. You can check it out here :)


And that's what's up! Only two more days of March 2016 - make the most of them! 

Until next time,



  1. Love those same shows! I just finished Gilmore, and I'm so excited for the mini movies to come out on Netflix !! Have a great week :)

  2. Those cookies.
