What's Hap-"Pinning" Wednesday {#32}

It's Wednesday which means it's time for another round of What's Hap-"Pinning" with Jessi and myself! You can link up and share about anything that's going on with you!

Today I'm gonna do a Currently post because it's been a bit since I did one and I felt like it, so there :)
Reading ...
I just finished a book called The Fall Up. It was cute, and had some really good steamy descriptions. I'd say it's a good beach read.

Listening to...
Spotify since apple music decided to start charging to access their radio station. No thanks, Apple. You already get too much of my money. 

Watching ...

I watched the Bachelor finale--I thought all along he was going to choose Lauren, and then the last episode I was thinking he had better interactions with Jojo. So, I was totally up in the air the whole time. I think Jojo would make a good Bachelorette so I'm glad that they picked her--way better than Caila.
I also watched the Vanderpump finale--James makes me ill. He's such a pompous jerk.

Cooking...
After a week of eating out due to hospital stuff/not being in the mood to cook, or because of birthday celebrations, we're back on the healthy eating train this week. Salad, Honey Mustard Salmon and One Pot Mexican Quinoa are all on the menu this week!

Looking forward to ... 
Spring Break next week. It's the first Spring Break we dont have a trip planned, but that's ok. With Zika rampant, and everything else that's been going on, some down time at home, with friends, and doing pampering things (massage, haircut) is just what the doctor ordered.

Wishing...
that I didn't have to hear anymore about these stupid politicians we have running right now to be President. They pretty much all suck.  Can we start over from scratch?

Enjoying ...
the massive tub of Jelly Bellys that my SIL got me as part of my birthday gift. There's about 8 pounds of them so I think I'll be stocked for quite some time. Don't tell my dentist!

Loving....
all of the love and support I've gotten from you guys, family and my other friends. It's been overwhelming in the best way possible. I think everything would be a lot harder without this incredible support system of people who I love and love me too.

Wearing ...
All kinds of stuff because the weather just can't seem to decide if it wants to be Spring, or if it wants to keep hanging on to Winter. Within the last week I've worn short sleeves and flip flops, and boots and long sleeves....Make up your mind, Mother Nature! Been wearing my new Kate Spade watch as much as possible tho :)

Grateful For...
It might be repetitive but my friends and family. And I've realized just how grateful I am for them even more this past week. I'm truly lucky and blessed.


Now it's your turn to link up and share what's hap-"pinning" with you!

  2. This weather is insane! Yesterday we hit 85 and now I think it's going back to the 50's. Just crazy!

  3. I'm with you on The Bachelor finale! I started changing my mind thinking he was going to pick Jojo because he seemed to have more chemistry with her. I'm so glad he chose Lauren because they seem super sweet together. Enjoy your Jelly Beans!

  6. I was Team Jojo, he definitely had something more real with her and she seemed to really know him better and when she needed to be there for him. Buttttt I'm excited for her to be the next bachelorette! Soooooo much better than Caila for sure :-D

  7. I'm so glad they picked JoJo as the next Bachelorette! And I'm with you on these politicians…let's just start this process over, shall we?!

  8. The weather has been absolutely crazy here too! I wouldn't even be surprised if we get more snow because it's so up and down. Your watch is gorgeous!

  9. That watch is adorable! I was really rooting for JoJo, but I think she needs someone who's a little bit edgier than Ben so I'm really excited to watch her as the bachelorette!

  10. I can't stand James, he is a lot of the reason I don't watch that show anymore. He is irritating.

  11. If anyone is sick of you repeating how grateful you are for your tribe, they can go screw. Big life things bring upon a realization of what is important. And your people and gratitude both fit that bill! So say it as much as you need or want to.

    And this reminds me I have salmon in the freezer that needs to be used. Lol

  12. OMG James. I can't with that kid. He makes me want to punch him through the tv. And you better share your one pot Mexican quinoa! :) <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  14. Jelly Beans are so good! I've definitely been indulging in a few..or more..here lately!-haha

  15. So nice to see you "in good spirits" or sort of anyway. Better stay put until Zika goes away! Xo

  16. Glad to hear that you are doing well. Oh man, look at all those jelly beans. I love jelly beans. Now, I want to have some. haha

  17. 100% agree about the race for President right now. BLEGH to them all. And it has been nice just kinda hanging out this Spring Break. Although I have had a few times when I've been like...I WANT TO GO SOMEWHERE!!! lol I'm off to IKEA today to get some more goodies for my apartment though so I'm excited! :)

  18. I'm a huge Spotify and Pandora fan. I'll always stick with them!

  19. I was so annoyed about Apple starting to charge for their radio - what a crock! As if I don't give them enough money as it is. Glad you have some things to look forward to next week for spring break.

  20. James from VPR has serious issues. The editing of the Bachelor finale was so good! They totally made it seem like JoJo had a shot. Lauren and Ben were so cute on ATFR and I can't wait to watch JoJo as The Bachelorette. Mmmm Jelly Belly! Enjoy those! Happy Hump Day!

  21. the comedy political stuff is so more true then the real politicians!! #FoRealz
    Enjoy that Spring Break staycation - that's the best sometimes to just relax

    ReplyDelete
  22. I feel the same about the politicians. Gah!! Honey mustard salmon sounds good. You might need to share that one with me. I mainly just do pesto and garlic salmon but open to trying other ways. The watch is so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Holy jelly beans, YUM!! First Spring Break we are not going away either. All of the boys are going different places so Mr. Nine and I will practice being empty nesters, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am so ready for the election to be over as well. Please share this one pot quinoa you speak of soon! I love that watch so much!

  25. A massive tub of Jelly Belly's?! It's probably a good thing I've never seen these! I'm so glad Jojo is the bachelorette - it would have been a long boring season with Caila. -Leah Chasing Texas

  26. We're not heading anywhere for spring break this year either even though I'm seriously needing the beach in my life!

    And girl - this election is just bananas. I keep waiting for Ashton Kutcher to come out and tell us that we've all been punked! Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I thought the same when i was watching the Bachelor but I think they do that on purpose to "throw us off"!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I really wanted JoJo to win too, but I'm glad that she's going to be the next Bachelorette. Plus I'm with you and think that Lauren and Ben were better suited for each other. OMG James is such a jerk! I wish that somebody would put him in his place already!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Please share your one pot Mexican quinoa recipe; it sounds fantastic! Loving the watch and that big ole jelly bean jar of goodness!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's been a big week for TV.. both The Bachelor and Vanderpump finales were crazy! I have no idea what I will do with my tv time now that they're over.. at least Teen Mom and Southern Charm are coming back on soon, haha! Have a fab week!

  31. Not loving the weather yoyo-ing back and forth, but I guess it's that time of the year? I hope you enjoy your time off relaxing and spending time with friends & family while you have spring break.

    ReplyDelete
  32. THAT WATCH!! Oh my gosh, I'm in love!! IN LOVE!
    I heard somewhere that Caila was supposed to be the next bachelorette, ack! Could you imagine?! She's gorgeous and a cute girl, but I wouldn't be able to handle her as the bachelorette. Glad it's not true!

    ReplyDelete
  33. oh. my. gosh. I cannot even begin to explain the level of hatred I have towards James. Hes such a weasel but unfortunately makes the show really good haha. he definitely brings the drama, thats for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Agree with you about Jojo being way better than Caila, she would have been a total bore! Mexican quinoa, that sounds soo good!! Enjoy your relaxing spring break girl, you more than deserve it! Also that watch, love!

    ReplyDelete
  35. James is such a jerk. He thinks he's all that and a box of chocolates, when he's really just a tool. I hate is arrogance. That watch is so pretty. Pretty in pink!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Spotify is the best.

    I like Jojo, but I just don't think you can be in love and then be ready to get engaged to someone else 3 months later. This coming from someone who was in a new relationship 2 weeks after breaking off an engagement. It's hard on the heart.

    That watch is so gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  37. That's my favorite kind of spring break! We'll be doing a little traveling the following week, but we'll also be staying put doing things around the house! I can't believe Apple started charging! Seriously. xo, Champagne&Suburbs
