What's up Wednesday: June Edition

It's time for What's Up Wednesday! 

Today, I am linking up with some of my favorite bloggers:  ShayMel and Shaeffer for What's Up Wednesday

1. What I'm Eating

I have been trying to eat a little bit healthier. Right now, I'm loving the avocado egg cups. It's extra yummy with some bacon ;)

Cookie butter makes everything better, right?

2. What I'm Reminiscing about

 Fall! I'm so ready for it to be cooler & football season. I can't believe I'm admitting that. I used to love the summer heat and now I find it unbearable.

3.What I'm loving

I am loving spending time with my people. I'm so glad I got the chance for good quality time before my internship started up.

4. What I've been up too

Wedding planning, quality time, and homework. Boo, summer classes!

Although, cake testing is definitely the best part of planning so far ;)

5.What I'm dreading

I'm dreading going back to the school routine, but I also know this is the last Fall semester ever :) Wahoo!

6. What I'm working on

I've decided to create my own wedding invitations. Coming soon to a blog post ;)

7. What I'm Excited about:

We always eat well when Erin's around ;)

8. What I'm Reading/Watching

I recently joined a book review program. I've worked my way through 3 books and I can't wait to share my June book review :)
Right now, I'm working my way through the Tea Planter series.

Janet Macleod did a fantastic job of hooking me, and pulling me into the tea world of India. 
If you need a new series, and you love a good family and romantic drama, give this book a try.

9. What I'm listening too:

Zack & I have recently been listening to the "Rock" station in Asheville. It's become a joke to attempt to sing the lyrics. It's way different than my calmer music :) 

10. What I'm Wearing:

A very, very casual business-casual. I can't wear jeans/shorts/flipflops at my internship. I am doing okay in the clothes department, but finding closed toe shoes that are comfortable and aren't to old lady-ish. The struggle is real. 

Side note, I love my ring from 3 Sisters Silver. I have been hunting down their work and finally found them at a convention in Tennessee! I love it so much :) 

11. What I'm doing this weekend:

Round 2 of bridesmaids dresses! We are going to try on the dresses I fell in love with last week. Hopefully, it works for everyone :) 

12. What I'm looking forward to next month: 

We have our first official food tasting! I can't wait to get that check marked off the list. It's funny how the guys are more willing to "help" out when food's involved ;)

13. What else new?

Not much else is new :) I feel like I have shared everything


What's your favorite 4th of July activity?
We don't have very many traditions for the 4th. I love a good fireworks show at the beach ;) 

Headed to see what's up in your life! 
Thanks, ladies for a fun link-up

Let's Talk: Red White & Blue

Hey friends!
Today, I am linking up with Erika & Andrea for their Let's Talk Series!

In honor of 4th of July, we are getting together to talk about all things Red White & Blue!

First up, I'm so grateful for our men & women who protect us. We are blessed to live in a country that is free! I'm proud to be a granddaughter of a military veteran. 

Let's Talk: Red White & Blue

I was humbled by the number of graves at Arlington. My heart aches for the lives lost and how so many were willing to sacrifice for us.

We don't have any big 4th of July plans this year. I'm excited to spend some time with my family & friends at home.

I'm hoping to pull together an outfit by Monday, but for now I am sharing the flat-lay  I put together last year. I love the little anchors.

Right now, navy is my go-to color. When I'm in a rush, I find myself reaching for the navy and just adding an accessory or two as I'm running out the door. I think navy might have to be my go-to for the 4th.

My cognac tote is one of my favorite things to pair with navy.

It's reversible & $48!

POPSUGAR was so great to send me their June box for review. June's Must Have Box had the perfect nail polish for this weekend! It's called "Born on the 4th of July"! I can't wait to try it :) 

Thanks PopSugar!

Thanks for letting me "talk"! I hope everyone has a fun & safe 4th! :)
