Hello all!!! Happy Hump Day, and we got 3 more days till Friday πŸ™‚

Today I’m joining MixandMatchMama and SheafferToldMeTo for Whats Up Wednesday!

Whats-Up-Wednesday

What I’m Eating

Y’all the air fryer saga continues! Lately, Andrew and I have been HOOKED on bison burgers (I guess bison is the fad here in CO). I’ve also been making homemade honey mustard chicken snack wraps, both of which have been the most recurring as of late.

I’m not a huge fan of panko so instead I’ve been crushing up Ritz bits cheese crackers and will use that as my batter for the chicken wraps. DELISH! I also use Ken’s honey mustard dressing, also my fave!

What I’m Reminiscing

I’ve been thinking about Boston and in addition, my friends & family A LOT lately. I haven’t gone THIS long without seeing them aside from FaceTime, and thank God for that. Totally better than nothing.

What I’m Loving

I am LOVING my new balcony space. It just feels more homey, warm, and cozy. I love sitting out there in the morning while I do my morning routine and then by the time Andrew is off work we spend a good chunk of our night hanging out and waiting for the sunset.

Its been raining more this summer than usual, like at least once a day anywhere between like 3-6PM. But once the rain clears we get these AMAZING sunsets.

What I’ve Been Up To

Just a ton of job searching, applying, and interviewing. And when I say A TON, I’m not exaggerating. It’s tough out there. But I’m still motivated and believe that the right thing will come my way. Patience is a virtue.

What I’m Dreading

Surprisingly nothing major on the radar and I’m thankful as heck.

What I’m Working On

I want to give myself a pat on the back because I’ve diligently been paying more attention to my blog again. I love my blog! It serves as a satisfying fun side project that helps keep me busy and SANE! Now that I have time, I can be more attentive and interactive on here; catching up on my friend’s blogs, commenting, and responding back to comments. It’s such a nice happy space for me. So I just want to keep on keeping on with it!

What I’m Excited About

Well, Andrew and I were so amped for our past Aspen trip and when it came and went, we just wanted more. And the least we can do (in terms of traveling) is travel locally, so we booked 3 more long weekend trips and I’m VERY excited for each spot we’re going to!

What I’m Watching/Reading

I’m still on my Seinfield kick. It’s probably my favorite late night watch. But we just recently finished the Zac Efron Netflix Doc: Down To Earth. LOVED IT. If I could host my own TV show, I would for sure do something similar to this, such a great idea. I love that he sheds light and brings awareness to matters that we don’t think about in our every day. Things that could really harm us now and generations down the road if we don’t fix the issues today. Really informative and a great wanderlusting treat!

What I’m Listening To

Unpopular opinion: I’m not head over heels like most for Taylor Swift but I did listen to her new album Folklore. I loved old school Taylor Swift, but I don’t mind this new album. I’m into the soft soothing songs so, I’m here for it.

What I’m Wearing

Funny thing is, when I originally switched jobs back in February and knew I was going to go back into an office every day… uh, I went on a pretty hefty shopping spree. Like I’m talking about new clothes, new shoes, fragrances, and make up. Andddd I’ve worn maybe like 3 of the new things that I bought and haven’t touched anything else since. Lovely, I know right. I need to start dressing up for the heck of it, but at the same time comfy clothes for the win. Plus Colorado is very laid back, it’s an active state and people are off enjoying their outdoor hobbies and I love that. I honest to God don’t think I’ve seen one person wearing heels here, which kind of kills my soul because Boston Jenny would run around in heels but I’m a sucker for a good pair of sneakers. Basically this entire outfit is my norm, purse and mask included!

What I’m Doing This Weekend

Oh you know, Andrew and I have a sweet little adventure planned out already.

What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month

Next month is AUGUST!!! I’m looking forward to virgo season, my birthday, and our next long weekend trip!!

What Else Is New

Okay so one of my favorite bloggers; Jackie Schimmel from the Bitch Bible, has been posting hysterical instagram stories of her singing into this amazon bought rose gold karaoke microphone and intentionally annoying her husband with it- its got me cackling. She’s got ALL her fans on board, myself included, we all want that microphone. Andrew is SO anti me getting it (LOL) because I already belt out songs left and right, I sing just about everything that I say and will break out into a synchronized dance as well. It’s great. If this is you too, then join us!

    1. I didn’t know either but I did see that they sell Ritz breading which sparked the idea! But I think I prefer to smash them up myself so that I can get a thick enough consistency! A must try πŸ™‚

  1. Those wraps look so yummy! I love that you do ritz crackers instead of panko! Awe girl huge hugs! I feel you on missing family and friends. I got to FINALLY see two of m best friends and it was the longest we had ever been apart. I also miss NY something fierce. Soon hopefully! I am in love with your balcony space! Seriously it looks like the perfect oasis! Sending you all the positive vibes! You WILL fond your perfect job! Any company is lucky to have you!
    I LOVE that you are updating your blog! I have missed it so much! It is a highlight when I can catch up and read your posts! (and spam you with comments LOL)
    Also thank you! I feel the same way about Taylor Swift, (I voted her first two albums, but lately I just haven’t picked with her music) I don’t hate her new album. I like that it is softer.
    I can also relate to the clothes thing. I sold ALL my workout stuff (When I moved I knew I wouldn’t;t be teaching yoga anymore) but guess what I have been living in? Lol.
    Eeeeek I can not wait to celebrate you! Happy Birthday Month beauty! This is your time and you are gonna rock it! So much love to you! ❀

    1. You’re so right, I’m really SO very thankful that I’m here in Colorado because day trips of long weekends here have been so blissful!! And thank you about the balcony, only took me a year to actually bring it to life but so happy I can go out there and enjoy it finally. Also… I know it’s someone else’s birthday month too πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ xo
