Today I'm linking up with The Larson Lingo, Mix and Match Family and Pinterest Told Me To for a What's up Wednesday! The list of what I will be talking about is above. So no time like the present to find out "what is up!" :)
Eating: Homemade spaghetti sauce/spaghetti for Nolan's 10th birthday! My sauce is amazing and one of my favorite meals! Sorry, I don't have any pictures. Was too busy eating! :) My sauce is called "California Style Spaghetti Sauce" and I've been making it since high school home economics! (A LONG time ago!) It's SO good!
Reminiscing about: Nolan turning 10. Can't believe my baby boy is 10 years old! Double digits!! Here he is at his 10th birthday party!
Loving: I am loving not having to wear my boot to go work! That thing is cumbersome and annoying! I love being free of it! :) The toe is healing and that makes me happy!
Been up to: We went to a UNO Omaha Mavericks hockey game on Saturday and had a great time! It was a fun pre-birthday celebration for Nolan. He got to take a friend and loved having a buddy with him! Had Nolan's big party on Saturday! That was an event! I'll be doing a post about that later this week.
Dreading: More winter weather. It's supposed to get into the upper 40's this week, but more winter weather is on the way for next week. Bleck! I do not like winter!! Hence my post about hating winter last week! Come on Spring!
Working on: My dissertation. That's all. Pretty boring stuff!
Excited about: My twin sister Alesha's baby shower on Sunday! We're having it at my mom's house and it should be a good time! Can't wait to see my friends and all of the great gifts she's going to get for the baby!
Watching: We just got done binge watching The Royals. Love it! And we're still watching and LOVING The Blacklist. Both are great shows! Then there's my usual watching for the week: Downton Abbey, New Girl, Grey's Anatomy, The Goldberg's, Modern Family, Once Upon a Time, The Americans, The Good Witch and of course, The Bachelor! Such a train wreck, but I love it!! I'm excited about Fuller House on Netflix starting too! I love TV! :)
Reading: Dissertations. I'm reading lots of different dissertations to see how to start my writing and structure it. Again, pretty boring stuff!
Listening to: The Jersey Boys radio on Pandora. Lots of good, old songs and songs from the Jersey Boys Broadway show and movie. Love it!
Wearing: My PJ's. I am a comfy clothes kind a gal. If I don't have track pants and a sweatshirt on, I have my pjs on. When I get home from work, I immediately put on my pjs. It's usually my pj pants and a comfy sweatshirt. That's my go-to look! Again, not very fancy, but I work mostly from home so comfy and causal is the name of the game!
Doing this weekend: Besides my sister's baby shower on Sunday, we're doing a whole lot of nothing! After last weekend and Nolan's 10th birthday, I am happy about a weekend of nothing. Just hang around and watch TV/movies. Maybe light a fire and pop some popcorn. Sounds like a great winter weekend to me! :)
Looking forward to next month: I am looking forward to MY birthday! I turn 42 next month and am looking forward to starting the year anew. I am also looking forward to Frank taking me to my favorite restaurant (Kobe Steakhouse) for my birthday dinner! Yay! :)
What else is new: Not much! Nolan's birthday takes up our January so I don't have too much else on the brain but that. And my dissertation. So that's about it.
Bonus question: What's my favorite Valentine's Day Treat?
I LOVE those little chocolate hearts with the marshmallow inside! They are so yummy and just say Valentine's Day to me! I also love to go to Starbuck's and order a mocha latte with raspberry syrup/flavor. YUM! That just screams V-Day to me, too! Chocolate and raspberry.....a perfect Valentine's Day combo! :)
Thanks for stopping by and enjoying the view.
Until Next Time....
