What's Up Wednesday

It's the June edition of What's Up Wednesday.
Which means June is almost over.
Which means 2016 is half over. 

How on earth have we already been through half the year!? I promise these years get faster and faster. 

Okay, so let's see what's up. 

What I'm Eating This Month

Well, this month was birthday month. And birthday month means I let my healthy guard down. Birthday month means lots of ice cream. And while you may think Blue Bell, this birthday month appeared to be "sponsored" by Baskin Robbins. Who woulda thought? You can read all about said birthday eating here

There was also that weekend in Mississippi where I ate a whole lotta southern cooking...

What I'm Excited About

One. Week. From. Today.
I'll be moving to Australia for nine weeks. 

So what am I excited about? Nuff said.

What I'm Reminiscing About

Since I'll be on another continent for two months, I'm reminiscing about all the family/friend time I've soaked up this month - and there's been a lot of it! I took a Father's Day trip to St. Louis with my dad, spent my birthday brunching and playing with my mom, spent a weekend (eating) in Mississippi with my grandmama, and then last weekend I spent some time with my sister, niece, and nephew at the waterpark :)

And the pup snuggles. Oh the pup snuggles. There has been a serious amount of pup snuggles.

I'm really going to miss my family when I'm over there. It makes my heart sad to think about it.
So I'm just not going to.

What I'm Dreading

This is where I would likely put that I'm dreading my impending 17-hour flight next week, but I'm viewing it as a mental game. Mind over matter. So we can't let my mind know I'm dreading it. Promise you'll keep my secret :)

What I'm Working On

Getting all my ducks in a row. Last week I did a lot of this:

...and then last weekend I did a lot of this:

And so this week I'm doing things like pharmacy runs, packing, dry-cleaning runs, etc.
There are just so many little things to do! Every time I cross something off my list I think of something to add!

What I'm Watching/Reading

If you were here last Friday, you know I've been binge watching one of my favorite TV shows:

I'm seriously obsessed with this show. Like have dreams about this show. Please call my Katy Walker. 

And as far as what I've been reading, you can check out my June Book review here!

What I'm Doing This Weekend

This weekend Kelsey and I are making one last roommate trip to the lake for July 4th! It's a yearly ritual for us, and since she'll be living in Charleston when I move home from Australia, it's like our last "hoorah!"

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

Go follow "Australia" on instagram. I did that yesterday and haven't been able to stop smiling since. 
Looking forward to it is an understatement. 


And that's what's up! 

Happy Wednesday everyone!


  1. So cool that you are moving to Australia! What will you be doing there for 9 weeks?
