What's Up Wednesday: January Edition

1. What We're Eating This Week...

Monday, we had pasta & meatballs and Tuesday night we had leftovers. I'm not sure about the rest of the week though.

2. What I'm Reminiscing About...

Honestly? Nothing at the moment which is a rarity for me.

3. What I'm Loving...

That I'm 3 lbs. away from my first weight loss goal! Since November, I've lost 27 lbs. I'm snacking less, writing down everything that I eat and drink during the day, taking a lot of walks, cutting back on portion sizes, and choosing better food options.

4. What I've Been Up To...

I'm still trying to get all of my energy back and feel 100% after having my tonsils out a month ago. I also have been continuing to substitute.

5. What I'm Dreading...

Nothing at the moment.

6. What I'm Working On...

I'm trying to get all caught up on reading blogs and blog posts that I want to make. I also have some Periscope videos to make as well as a Youtube video.

7. What I'm Watching/Reading...

Watching: All of my regular TV shows
Reading: I'm still reading Christmas books and I need to get my butt in gear because I'm still on the book that I started at the beginning of the month. I've been slacking on reading.

8. What I'm Listening To...

Matthew Morrison, Kenny Chesney, Andy Grammer, Kate Voegele

9. What I'm Wearing...

Shirts/sweaters, jeans/pants. When I'm home, I'm always in pajamas or lounge clothes.

10. What I'm Doing This Weekend...

I have two planner meet ups that I will be attending this weekend and I'm very much looking forward to those.

11. What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month...

My nephew M turns 13!, and my brother & Grandma both have birthdays as well. My fur baby, Davey Eli turns 9. I will be going to Turks & Caicos for a week. I'm also looking forward to Valentine's Day (I love holidays!).

12. What Else Is New...

I'm going to a huge planner conference in April this year with some planner friends of mine and I can't wait. I'm so excited to meet new friends and partake in all of the festivites. I'm also really excited about the location (I will talk more about it soon) because it's a place I've always wanted to go to and explore.

Bonus Question This Month:

Who Is Your All Time Favorite Bachelor?

I'm choosing two because I can't pick just one (lol):
1) Sean Lowe
2) Ben Higgins

And just for fun: my favorite Bachelorettes are Jojo Fletcher & Trista Sutter.


  1. Visiting from the link up! I'm a little jealous of all the planner meet ups. I'm just getting into the world of Planning so I'm like a sponge soaking up all of the planner knowledge! Congratulations on being close to your first weight loss goal, that's awesome!

    1. Hi, Donna! Thank you for the comment and for stopping by from the link-up. I've been into planning for years now but just recently found the planner community two years ago. It's such a wonderful community to be a part of. I suggest seeing if you have any local or semi-local planner girls near you. I know they are a ton of different groups out there. Also, feel free to add me on Instagram at /amyraeplans5.

  2. Congrats on your weight loss! That's awesome! Keep up the great work! :) I too LOVE Matthew Morrison and Kenny Chesney - definitely a couple of my favorites! :)

    1. Thank you so very much, Trac! :)

      They are both so amazing. I've seen Kenny Chesney in concert three times and his shows are always incredible. He is my all time favorite singer. Matthew Morrison is incredibly talented. I was lucky enough to see him on Broadway when he was in Finding Neverland. I think my mouth was open to the floor the whole show. It was beyond amazing and I definitely did not want it to end!
