What’s Up Wednesday-December 2016

12/21/2016 2 Comments

Today is the last What’s Up Wednesday with Shay for the year! I love this link up and can’t wait to check out what everyone’s up to with the holidays 🙂

WHAT I’M EATING THIS WEEK:

I made my first chicken parm dinner and it was gone pretty fast, so it must have been good right? 😉 I’m making it again for my Christmas party tonight.

Salmon with a heavy dose of vegetables. It’s my way of trying to stay healthy during the holiday season.

Lobster rolls and clam chowder in RI this weekend!!

Omg have you guys tried these two different sweets from Trader Joe’s?! I can’t stop once I start!

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

My trip to Paris last year during the holidays 🙂

Getting to see the City of Light during holiday time was a special treat. I can’t believe I rang in the New Year in France and Switzerland and now it’s time for New Year’s Eve again. #WhereDid2016Go

WHAT I’M LOVING:

Twin boys! My cousin and her husband welcomed their new additions last Friday and they are the cutest things in the world. I’m so excited since there hasn’t been twins in the family before. I’m showering them and their big sister with all my love these days.

WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO:

Birthdays, Birthdays! Check out my post about this joy filled weekend. Also, lots of football watching and Christmas parties. I can’t wait for tonight since I’m hosting one for my girlfriends 🙂

WHAT I’M DREADING:

Getting sick 🙁 You know that feeling like its coming, but you are doing everything in your power to stop it because you’re just too busy to get sick?!

WHAT I’M WORKING ON:

Plane Ride

Upcoming travel in 2017! Which means more traveling posts and guides!

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT: 

Attending a New Years Eve wedding next week! I’ve always wanted to experience one and now I have my chance. A long sparkly gown is in order 😉

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:

Christmas movies and Christmas novels 🙂 I’m finishing Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand this week. Reading about Nantucket during Christmas time is the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit.

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:

On repeat. #favoriteofalltime

With a little bit of these guys mixed in!

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Lots of boots, sweaters and scarves! I wasn’t that great documenting my outfits this month either.#Theresalwaysnextmonth Here are some of my favorite things to wear right now though:

 

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:

Christmas!! I am excited to celebrate with my family. I’ve been very spoiled through out my life because I don’t ever have to travel that far from my parents house. We spend Christmas Eve with my mom’s side at my aunts and Christmas Day with my dad’s side at my grandparents.

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:

Via my sister 🙂

Park City, UT!!!

Stay tuned for more info…

WHAT ELSE IS NEW:

I’m just enjoying the Christmas season with family and friends as much as I can. I love having a two year old god daughter because seeing the holiday through her eyes really makes it special. I spent a lot of time with her this weekend, while her parents were having the twins. I cherished every second of playing with her dancing Santa and watching Christmas themed Disney jr and Sprout shows 🙂

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY FROM 2016?

Ah it’s so hard to pick since it started off so amazing in Paris and Switzerland. The day out to the Caillier chocolate factory with my sister was pretty memorable. It was an awesome year filled with lots of family time and friends visiting from other places. However to end 2016 with two new bundles of joy might be the best memory of all 🙂

See you Friday for Friday Favorites, Oh Hey Friday and Five on Friday!
