whats up wednesday

Cup Of Jo


Hello friends! Today I’m linking up with MixandMatchMama and Sheaffer Told Me To for Whats Up Wednesday. Let’s get it going!

What I’m Eating

I go through these phases where I’m not craving anything in particular and when that happens, I get into a cooking funk. So it’s been a lot of Uber Eats for Andrew and I this week and we’ve been ordering Thai and Greek quite frequently. Both yum! But you know what I am excited about and have already devoured on many accords: cotton candy grapes & fresh peaches!

For my cooks out there: feel free to share some of your favorite recipes with me 🙂

What I’m Reminiscing About

Isak Heartstone. If you want to read more about him check out my Breckenridge post!


What I’m Loving

The mornings have been mild and the sun luckily doesn’t hit the balcony till mid day so Vin and I have been spending mornings outside. After grabbing coffee for Andrew and I, I’ll slide outside and get my journaling and blogging on.

What I’ve Been Up To

I’ve been spending the past two weeks HEAVILY prepping for interviews. I definitely OD on the prepping side but y’all you gotta do what you gotta do. You know!? As much as I love this “do me” kind of lifestyle I know it’s not sustainable in the long run. And God knows your gal needs proper vision insurance so that I can get my damn eyes checked and upgrade my glasses prescription. Do it for the vision insurance, right? Kidding! Job security would be nice.

What I’m Dreading

To be honest, nothing at the moment. I’m cool calm collective right now and I’m going to lavish in it while I can.

What I’m Working On

Working on doing some very minor home decor upgrades. We started with getting a new couch because we were in DIRE need of replacing the one we originally bought last year. And y’all I’m not one that likes to drop $$$ on new furniture and especially only a year deep of having it but it was needed and it sure is fun getting new things. Next on deck is some balcony furniture changes. Below is my Pinterest inspo sooo if anyone knows where I can get chairs adjacent to these please give me a shout!

What I’m Excited About

I’m excited for the next couple weekends; we have some long weekends coming up with 4th of July around the corner and the following week is our trip. It’s nice having days off but it’s even nicer when Andrew does too 🙂

What I’m Listening To

I know I’ve been raving about the podcasts and the saga continues. I’m all caught up on The Token CEO, Work Woman, The Bitch Bible and now on deck is The Absolutely Not by Heather McMahan. I’m super behind on hers but she has me yelling, hilarious!


What I’m Watching

Okay also, I’m almost ashamed of admitting this but I’m finally watching Seinfeld. I’m tired of not understanding the Seinfeld references that everyone and their mom refers to soooo I’ve jumped on the bandwagon, I’m on it, and I’m here for it. I mean even in KUWTK, Khloe & Scott make an Art Vandelay reference to Seinfeld and I just finished that episode; it’s funny and I get it now.

What I’m Wearing


What I’m Doing This Weekend

You know, we don’t have much planned, I think we want to keep it low key since we have upcoming plans. But you know me, I’m always down for a spontaneous adventure so maybe we’ll come across something cool. Stay tuned!

What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month

Gee whiz, you know I honestly can’t even believe we’re a week away from July, like what? Next month, we’re going to celebrate Andrew’s niece’s birthday remotely. We have our trip planned that we’re not-so patently waiting for. And to be honest I’m praying that I start a job next month. At the beginning of my unemployment, I set a goal to have a job by August, I know thats tough and somewhat out of my hands but I’m still hopeful to land something amid a pandemic. So I’ll take any and all good vibes! ❤

What Else Is New

This may be a total unpopular opinion but I think I love golden oreos more than the original. Am I crazy? Maybe! Ha

Thats all I got. Thanks for coming by and I’ll see you on my next post!

xo, Jj

  1. We love golden oreos too; though really do they have any bad flavors?? Best of luck on your job search!!


    1. Great point about the oreos! I also didn’t realize how many different flavors they have?! When did that happen lol Thank you so much for the job support ❤


  2. Oh, I hope your job search turns up the perfect job, and soon. I have ten peaches on my counter and I’m waiting (impatiently) for them to ripen. Hurry up, peaches!


    1. Ha I totally feel that but when the peaches do finally ripen it’s pure juicy deliciousness!! And thank you for your kind words in regards to the job hunt, perfect and soon would be great ❤ ❤


  3. LOVE these posts! Girl you are making me miss New York with your talk of eating Thai and Greek food! Ughhh. I miss having Seamless and Uber Eats and ALL the food deliveries! Girl you will kick booty at your interviews! I know they are going to love you! And any company is incredibly lucky to have you! Week new furniture is always fun (though I hear you about the money!) and I LOVE your balcony Inspo! It looks like an awesome oasis I would never want to leave! Bwahaha I cannot eat Oreos (bummer) but I am not a fan of chocolate (I know sacrilege) so I always go for the GF vanilla options over the chocolate cookies. I hope you have an amazing week sweets! ❤
