It’s Wednesday and my first day back to work after 5 days off and let me tell you, I think I could have a five day weekend every week 😉 Today I am linking up with Mix and Match Mama for What’s up Wednesday to update you one what’s going on in the life of Claire!
What We’re Eating:
Well since Miguel has been out of town and I have been trying to reduce my calories and eat healthy here is what I have been making for my meals:
I baked marinated chicken and then through-out the week I made chicken wraps for lunch. I used whole wheat tortillas, fresh spinach, baby tomatoes and parmesan to make them.
Then for dinners I made taco salads. I browned enough beef for the week and added taco seasoning then topped it off with lettuce, bell peppers, a little low fat sour cream, a sprinkle of cheese and a few tortilla chips.
These are both pretty low cal meals that actually fill me up!
What I’m Reminiscing About:
My long 5 day weekend! I had Friday through Tuesday off and it was the best break. I had no plans at all and was so boring. BUT I wanted to get so much checked off my to do lists and I did so I am so happy that I could just stay at home and get stuff done and relax. It was a much appreciated break from work.
What I’m Loving:
I am loving my nail polish I picked up this weekend and painted my toes with. I love bright pink for the Summer months. It is Essie Sit Me in the Front Row.
And this new face scrub from Target, my skin was in dire need of a freshening up. I am still considering buying a Clarisonic?? What do you think?
Since Miguel is still gone, I have been having a lot of time for myself. Which means working and completing to do lists around the house and trying to work out everyday. (Including making signs, wedding planning and cleaning).
What I’m Dreading:
Can’t think of anything right now.
What I’m Working on:
Signs. Totally in love with my new signs! I love my little hobby and I feel like I keep getting better!
What I’m Excited About:
I just booked a little trip for us over the 4th of July Weekend (another 5 day weekend coming up for me!) we are going up to Wisconsin for a couple of days: water park and lake activities. I’m excited for a little get away and spending time out in the sun with Miguel.
What I’m Watching/Reading:
Did you catch my May Book Review? Otherwise I am starting my new book today, The Husband’s Secret. I loved Big Little Lies so I am so excited!
Otherwise, most of my shows had their finales: The Voice, Blacklist and Blindspot. I still have Pretty Little Liars to watch though!
What I’m Listening To:
Despacito and Moana are on repeat for me lol.
What I’m Wearing:
Floral Shirt and White Jeans – Still waiting for warm summer weather over here but absolutely in love with this top from Eleven Oaks Boutique.
Red White and Blue Tank – Super festive tank from Target, perfect for this past weekend and Fourth of July!
Picking Miguel up from the airport- finally!! I have missed him.
What I’m looking forward to next month:
Visiting Chicago and we will be purchasing tickets for Disney World!!
What else is new:
I think that about covers it!
Bonus Question: Favorite Vacation Spot:
This is a hard one for me because I have so many vacations that I love but the one that has to come out on top is:
Siesta Key Beach! I’ve literally been going there since I was in the womb (no seriously) but my first official trip was when I was 18 months old, and I have been going back ever since. My dad owns a time share right on the beach so I have been blessed with the opportunity to be able to stay beach front on the best beach in the world. I love Siesta Key – the beautiful white sand beaches and the wonderful food 🙂
My honorable mentions are Disney World (especially the Disney cruise I went on – still best vacation ever) because I can never get enough Disney, you can check out my Disney planning post to read more about that. But I also loved my 10 day trip to Oahu, Hawaii. Hawaii was just a perfect paradise and I am so excited to go back to Hawaii (Kauai this time) in about 10 months!!
