What’s Up Wednesdays #9

Good night and Wednesday greetings to you all!  Sorry for the late post but this Wednesday and this week overall has been very hectic. So I’m going to give you guys the summarised version hope you don’t mind.

What I’m eating this week:

Today for lunch I had Rotisserie Chicken and Green Salad. For dinner we ate out at a place called Hayley’s. I had Grilled Chicken Breast with Mushrooms and Fettuccine Alfredo Sauce.

I love pasta dishes especially the ones with cheese based sauces. Yummy!! 🙂 The ambience was delightful, the waitress was pleasant and the lighting was just right.  It was our second visit to Hayley’s and the kids love it there.

What I’m reminiscing about: 

When my clothes and my body complimented each other and there was no fighting for attention. Lately my stomach has fought for the spotlight more than it used to. The sweet life is catching up with me.  Balance is key but the struggle is discipline. I will be addressing this.

What I’m loving:

Family time! The experiences we are sharing and will continue to share for the rest of the holidays.  Once the kids are happy and enjoying themselves that makes me happy. 🙂

What I’ve been up to:

The usual craft at least until tomorrow because it’s our last day of camp. Here are some of the items we did this week.




What I’m dreading:

I’m hoping that we could get everything done in time regarding the house but I suspect we would have to put off some stuff for later in the year. I don’t want this to negatively affect the other stuff I have planned for the family. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we would be able to work around it.

What I’m working on:

Too much stuff and then again nothing I want to be working on.  You know that feeling when you have a ton of stuff to get done but the stuff you would rather do gets pushed back and the crappy stuff has to take centre stage because you can’t avoid it. It’s rather bitter/ sweet for me at the moment.  Sometimes being the “woman of business” can be very stressful.

What I’m excited about:

Can you guess? I hope you’ve been paying attention. 🙂 My VACATION!!! 🙂  Forgive me for playing that tune over and over but I’m really excited and anxious. I’ve been waiting for these few weeks like forever. No clock watching! No alarm clocks! No pick-ups and drop-offs for school! Just relaxation and whatever fun activities WE want to do. 🙂

What I’m watching:

Lately, very little television so I’m yet to start Orphan Black.  I’m focused on finalising vacation arrangements for the family so I’m spending even more time on the computer. Next year things will be more organised I promise! 🙂

Who/ What I’m listening to:

This is What You Came For – Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna.  Good music can definitely wake me up and give me the energy to work. I crash and burn once the work is done but still thank you Lord for the music. 🙂

What I’m wearing/ Let’s Go Shopping:

Tonight, we’re shopping for accessories. I visited  Brighton.com  and these are some of the items I fell in love with. The handbag unfortunately is out of stock but I still love it. 🙂

What I’m doing this weekend:

Catching up on much-needed sleep hopefully!

What I’m looking forward to the next month:

Let me put it this way hotel-food-relaxation. 🙂

What else is new?

No more than you guys already know sorry to say.  As the weeks go by this should get more interesting.

Until next week, stay blessed and remember we’re all unique and WE CAN do anything we put our minds too.  That’s what I’ve been telling myself LOL and so far so good. 🙂

Make this week a great one! Thanks for stopping by.
