What’s Up Wednesday #2

Hello! Welcome back to another What’s Up Wednesday! I originally was going to stick to doing these just once a month, then I decided to do it every two weeks which I didn’t. I don’t have an excuse other than I forgot. But the more I think about it, I would rather stick to once a month. I do little catch ups in my weekend reviews, so I don’t feel like I’d have much to say if I did this every week or two weeks.

Here’s a link to the first one – What’s Up Wednesday. Credit to the wonderful Shay!

Let’s get into it!

What We’re Eating This Week

The usual, mixed in with some treats

What I’m Reminiscing About

Obviously wedding. Primarily because we got the rest of our wedding photos back and I’ve been loving going through them. I’ve got a whole post tomorrow where I share lots more of new wedding photos.

What I’m Loving

My new tattoo!! It’s gorgeous, and I can’t wait for it to fully heal, because it’s still pretty sore and tender at the moment. But not as bad as it was at first.

Mandala Tattoo

What We’ve Been Up To

Work mostly. Still looking at open homes. Keeping our home fairly tidy and running. Life in general.

What I’m Dreading

Work getting busier. By that I mean, we have quite a few more babies starting over the next few months. It’s part of the job obviously, but I never know how the settling process will go. Some babies are fine, others will cry and scream for most, if not all day. Eventually, they’re okay, as we build up that trust and relationship. But it can be a hard transition sometimes.

What I’m Working On

Wedding Album!! I am so excited, I’m trying to pick which photos (gonna narrow it down to 100 maybe) and put them in an album, but not just the one with pockets. I want to do something a bit different. Not quite sure yet though, but it’s fun looking around!

What I’m Excited About

Going self hosted in a few weeks! I’m still reading up, and trying to figure out which provider to go with. (Siteground is looking pretty good, that or inMotion Hosting). Honestly, I’m just ready to dive into it, but I want to soak in as much info as I can. Any tips or advice you want to give me if you’re made the switch, please give them to me!

What I’m Watching/Reading

Currently making my way through the Star Wars movies. Gonna watch Return of the Jedi tonight then I’m done!

I’m still reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I’m slowly getting through it.

What I’m Listening To

I’ve been listening lots to Issues by Julia Michaels lately. It’s just a catchy song and I love the opening.

I also love this cover done by Walk off the Earth

What I’m Wearing

Cardigans. Boots. Winter Things.

What I’m Doing This Weekend

This coming weekend, we’re doing all the usual. However, I kinda want to look through some opshops, cause I haven’t been in a while. I’m hoping to give Kali’s Thrift List a go, I mean, a lot of the items are summer related, but I’m sure I can track down a few things at least. By the way, go check out said list and Kali in general 😀 She’s cool 🙂

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

This month, as I said, I’m looking forward to moving to self hosting. Next month, I don’t know. It’s just going to be regular life it seems.

What Else Is New

I’m doing another 30 Day Challenge. I really loved the old one, and I found this movie one on Pinterest that looks like a lot of fun!

That’s what’s up with me. What’s up with you guys?

  1. Ohhhh! So excited for you to do Ks thrift list!!

    1. Hehe, it just looks like so much fun! I don’t think I can get the whole list in one go, but it’ll be fun to see what I can find 😀

  2. Love your wedding photos, so many beautiful ones on instagram. xx

    1. Thank you Azra! I’m glad you like them, I have a hard time trying not to spam them out on my Instagram 😂

  3. Yesterday, I started my seventh book this summer break (thats a lot of reading in one summer). Today, love that it is Fourth of July! July 1st was the Celebrate America Pops Symphony and that to me felt like the best way to Celebrate America Independence Day even though it was on July 1st.

    Bizarre that it is July. Next month, a lot of things are going through my mind. Things that are intimidating, exciting and a bit sad. You know, when you enter that last of college, it can feel that way. That year, I will no longer be living in the dorms at my school, but instead in the suites, which are still on Campus.

  4. This is such a cute idea and the food you posted looks so good…lovely wedding photos and I need to look into this book❤️

    1. Thanks Kerdisha! This is a fun catch up post that I like to do once a month!
      The Life Changing Magic of Tidying is a good book! Definitely look into it 😀

  5. Ahh! You have no idea how excited I am to see you thinking about finding some things from The Thrift List! I can’t wait to see what you find, and please let me know how it goes. Your wedding pictures are gorgeous from what I’ve seen, so that sounds like a fun project too xx.

    1. Thanks Kali! Your list sounds like so much fun that I definitely wanted to join in! I normally go into thrift stores with no clue what I’m looking for, so having a list is helpful 😂

      1. I’m glad it can help you! xx.

  6. So excited to see your wedding photos!!!! I’m editing a video for YouTube! So excited and nervous!!!

    1. I can’t wait to see it!! Another reason to look forward to the weekend 😀 😀

  7. I love looking at your wedding pictures, I can’t wait to see that post!
    Return of the Jedi is my favorite of the Star Wars movies. If you liked the others, you’ll definitely like that one.
    Also, what 30 day challenge are you doing? I’ve been wanting to do one, maybe we can do it together (if you want, no pressure 😊)!
    Great post, as always. 😘😎

    1. Haha, thanks Hannah! I loved Return of the Jedi! It was so good 😄😄
      Ooh it’d be fun if you join me on this challenge! I got it off Pinterest, if you email me at ang.wool@gmail.com I can send you the full list 😄😄

      1. Okay, thanks! I will do that! 😊

  8. I’ve been listening to Issues on repeat for a while now, although in all honesty when I first heard it I didn’t know it’s name, and I thought she was singing ‘and you don’t touch me, cos if you did baby I would touch you too’.. which admittedly didn’t make sense but I went along with anyways 🙂

    1. Haha 😂 it’s funny how sometimes we dont realise we’ve misheard a lyric but just go with it anyway 🙂
      Issues is such a good song though 😃

  9. Ooohhh looking forward to seeing you do Kali’s thrift list!! I love your tatoo it’s so pretty and your wedding photos are gorgeous 😊 xx

    1. It’s definitely going to be fun to see if I can find everything on the list! Thanks Amelia 😀

      1. Yeah I bet it will and it’s okay 😊 xx

  10. Hi. Such a good idea to do a q and a like this. Love it!!! Your Tatoo is awesome!! Hope it’s feeling a bit better! 😱 I’m too scared to have one but hubby has loads!

    1. Haha, Thanks! Its always fun to do this kind of post 😄
      My tattoo doesn’t hurt too much, it’s just itchy now as it’s reached the flaking stage 😥
      I was scared before my first tattoo but it wasn’t too bad! Needles never bothered me much 🙂

      1. Ah I have a huge fear of needles!!! Like… horrendously rocking in the corner of the room fear so I never could!!! 🙄

  11. I’m happy for you that you have tons of wedding photos because I have absolutely none. My wedding was a last minute thing I didn’t even get to prepare so that’s a huge bummer.
    And I thought about doing Kali’s thrift list too. She has found some pretty great pieces!! And cool that you’re thinking about going self hosted. I’m still gonna wait a little longer lol.

    1. Oh no! That is a bummer, but you guys are married which is awesome! Maybe have a fancy photo shoot done for your one year anniversary? I’m considering it so we can get more fancy photo of ourselves 😂 We don’t normally have any other photos of us beyond selfies.
      Kali’s thrift list looks fun!! I can’t wait for the weekend so I can see what I can find from it. 🙂

      1. Oh I thought about doing a shoot, I think that would be a great way to redeem ourselves lmao. And we’ve actually been married for five and a half years 😅
        I do think I want to do a vow renewal and do it right that time and take many pictures etc.
        Ah nice! I hope you find some great pieces that you can share with us!!

  12. Aw heck yesss, I love Whats Up Wednesday!!! EEK you’re thinking of going self-hosting?!?! 🙂 🙂 That is so exciting, that would be so perfect for you with all the time and effort you put into your blog, you do SO good at keeping up with it!! I can barely even keep up with mine lol I wish I could pull you away from winter and winter things and give you some of our summer 🙂 I am so anxious to see the wedding album!!!!! YAY! Do we have a time frame for it or is it still up in the air lol

    xo, JJ

    1. Oh wait I think I spoke too soon, I think I just scrolled up and saw a “looking back on our wedding” post YAY! This is what I get for being MIA on wordpress haha

    2. I’m so excited for self-hosting! I’m planning on going in a few weeks, and I’m just researching everything around it! I would love to do more on my blog! I love writing it, but it would be cool to see what else I can do on my own platform 😀
      I would love to get some of your summer!! I’ve been jealously going through your Insta and liking everything 😂
